Prometheus Design Werx – S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Prometheus Design Werx has been launching some launching some great products but they’ve outdone themselves this time. The S.H.A.D.O. (S.uspension H.aul A.ccess D.urable O.rganize) Pack is a 28l panel loader.


Constructed of 500D Cordura, the pack features a Hi-visibility orange 70D nylon ripstop liner to allow for easy visualization into the pack in any lighting condition. This lining can also serve as an emergency signaling option in emergency situations.

The pack features an industry first, two fully zippered clamshell opening panels into the two primary compartments that allow for unobstructed access into the pack.

The primary compartment of the pack features a top exterior zippered accessory pocket, an interior full length zippered mesh pocket, and a multi use padded laptop divider/bladder pocket with clip (padded pocket insulates bladder from a user’s body) to ensure total organization that can meet the changing needs of the user. The secondary full-size clamshell compartment can features a frame sheet pocket (K-Frame Sheet sold separately) and a ladder buckle mount for the optional PDW EDCO Panel. This secondary clamshell compartment allows the user to store and organize their EDC items into a dedicated area and segregated from the main compartment. These two full zip clamshell compartments are unique in their approach in an effort to deliver a seamless and uncluttered experience while loading or accessing the interior of the pack.

The refined exterior of the pack features several additional pockets and carry options such an integratable and removable optional Gear Trap beaver tail to quickly stow bulky items on the pack exterior. This beavertail style component includes a zipper pocket on the reverse that can provide quick access to many styles of tablets, maps, or notebook without entry into the main clamshell compartments of the pack. Dual, custom made 330D 90/10 nylon/elastane stretch fabric water bottle side pockets are designed to fit up to a standard 1L Nalgene bottle with additional admin organizer pockets underneath. Additional exterior details include center-line daisy loops, dual hydration ports, top and bottom carry/haul handles, cinching shock cord grid, a performance, wicking, padded back made of Dri-Lex® and a removable, adjustable 2” webbing belt with PALs overlay allow for further customization of the pack. An optional, integratable, fully padded, low profile, load bearing ToF (Trail or Fight) Belt is also available. The ToF Belt™ is a stand alone accessory, which is fully MOLLE compatible and can be used as a 1st Line or utility belt. MILSPEC elastic and Velcro One-Wrap strap keepers neaten up the appearance of the pack and ensures that the webbing cinch strap tails are policed and out of the way.


Talk about versatile; the S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L can be used for a wide variety of adventures.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“The PDW S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L is designed to be an extension of its user in their everyday carry needs to any number of adventures into the field and back country. With an inherent purpose-driven design this pack represents a lifelong, yet constantly evolving core design ethos and aesthetic seen throughout all of our PDW products. The DNA of S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L is born from the classic design and engineering lineage of the core outdoor and alpine sports tradition. Fused with modern capability, ergonomics, practical usability, and ruggedized materials this day pack delivers intelligent and carefully considered versatile performance for today’s discerning user. The S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L is designed and built for those whose have chosen to live a life less ordinary and require a class of products that speaks to that calling. From the spontaneous wilderness overnighter, an urban weekend of food trucking in a new city, exploring ancient ruins in a distant land, skinning up and carving down a hidden backcountry bowl, to confidently carrying your EDC essentials to and from work or the range. This day pack is as adventurous and versatile as you want to be.”

PDW will also offer accessories such as the PDW Gear Trap, the ToF (Trail or Fight) Belt, K-Frame Sheet, and an array of MOLLE compatible pouches, hook & loop 6×6 Tiles.

Warrior East – LBT Go Pack In Additional Colors

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Here’s a sneak peek of two new colors for the very popular Go Pack from LBT Inc. Instead of a 3-Day size, it’s really more of a day-and-a-half size which is perfect as a Go Bag. There are external mesh and zippered pockets in addition to the main zippered compartment. Additionally, the shoulder straps are the same reinforced, bartacked, padded from LBT you are used to.

Watch for awesome pricing during the initial launch.

I love the name which reminds me of the name of the organization tasked with defending the earth from alien invaders in the early 70s science fiction TV series, UFO.
