I made a quick visit to HSP’s batcave in the Phoenix area last fall. Travis Haley showed me a bunch of cool projects including prototypes of the new FlatPack. I am very happy to see it make it to market.
The D3 FlatPack is a pack designed with a unique expandable gusset system, which allows it to go from an almost flat profile to 600 cubic inches when completely expanded.
In the compressed state, the FlatPack has storage room in the main compartment for a 1 liter hydration bladder, and small items such as batteries, energy gels, and chem lights in the dedicated admin chamber. When expanded, the main compartment can fit a fully-loaded D3CR, helmet, or jacket, and the admin chamber can fit electronics and/or small binoculars.
The FlatPack fully integrates with a D3CR or D3CR-H, with the pack straps replacing the H-harness. This combination results in a light recon, patrol, or EDC/Worst Case Scenario rig. The FlatPack is also compatible with any PALS-based system including plate carriers, assault vests or other packs with external PALS webbing.
Designed with the SOF end user in mind, the FlatPack is also great as a compact carry bag for civilians. The padded inner chhamber comfortably and safely stores consumer electronics including common tablet computers and laptops up to 8″ x 12″, and can also accommodate items such as books and digital cameras.
Available in Black, Coyote, MultiCam, and Ranger Green.
