  • Max. dimensions 85 x 37 x 25 cm + bottom corner pouches.
  • Weight 1700 g.
  • Drawcord divider inside, top compartment height 60 cm, bottom compartment height 25 cm.
  • Roll top closure with added security/compression strap.

    Dear SSD – Can You ID This Pack?

    Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

    An SSD reader, who also happens to be an Aggie, sent us this photo and wanted to know the make and model.

    IMG_2425

    He thinks it might be a variant of the Proper Medic pack, but this member of the US Army’s The Old Guard seems to be using it for K9 purposes. Interstingly, there’s a tag on the side, but unfortunately, the photo isn’t high enough resolution to read it.

    Since we have the greatest readership the world over, we thought one of you might know the exact model.

    Triple Aught Design – Spectre 34 Pack

    Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

    The Spectre 34’s scalable, lightweight design includes customizable 7075 aluminum stays and HDPE frame sheet, adjustable harness system including removable waistbelt, and expandable capacity.

    IMG_2358

    A 3-row, 4-column PALS grid on the face supports the Spectre compression system and accessory pouches, such as the OP1, GPP1 and GPP2. A low-profile daisy chain along the periphery of the bag provides attachment points for S1/S2 pouches, radios, and other accessories.

    Internal mounting points within the main compartment support a range of accessories such as Control Panels for further customization.

    Isolated side compartments, easily accessed via dedicated full-length zippers and separated from the main compartment by durable and water-resistant ripstop panels, feature hanging loops, covered exit ports, and externally routed drain holes. Ideal for hydration systems, isolating wet or dirty gear, or for keeping extra layers and small items readily accessible.

    IMG_2357

    The Spectre Transporter Tail, hydration pack systems, and other accessories can attach to either the concealed, integrated attachment points at the crown or to the daisy chain for externally configurable storage.

    Similar attachment points inside the side pockets allow for management of ice tools and other gear along the sides of the pack via the zippered port on the bottom.

    A modular compression system controls the load in the main compartment, or can be positioned across the pack to carry larger items, such as snowshoes or antler shed.
