Huron Tactical – 68l Assaulter Sustainment Pack

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

This is the last installment of a three-part exclusive sneak peek at Huron Tactical’s new pack and clothing line. Today, we’ll cover the 68 liter Assaulter Sustainment Pack. It’s a hybrid top/panel loader design with a common external frame that can be swapped out with other pack bags.

This 22″ Huron Load Carriage Backpack Frame was designed to aid in the overall load carriage of the family of packs as well as additional components and can accommodate all of the larger Huron pack bags. The frame itself is 1.5 to 2 pounds lighter than most other makes on the market. The Yoke/Shoulder and Waist Belt assembly can be custom fit to the users height and girth thanks to a PALS-style grid that is adjustable for height.

The front, side and inside main compartment has generous amounts of PALS webbing to secure extra pouches or the PRC117 radio adapter. An internal mesh comprehension system secures and prevents unnecessary shifting of packed equipment. Attachment points on the top and front of the pack were added in order to use interchangeable front flaps and caps, which add space when needed.

• Cubic Liters: 68 (Main Body, LG V.2 Cap, Nalgene Bottle Pockets, Roll Bottom Storage Compartment)
• Dim: 25.5”H x 13.625”W x 9.75”D 

Like the 32 liter model, this larger pack has a rolltop closure that sits independently below the Cap. It is closes with Velcro, is rolled tight and then secured via SR buckles meaning you can control your load and keep your gear a little drier. This same rolltop closure has been integrated into the bottom sleeping gear compartment so no zippers to catch on your sleeping bag as you try to stuff it into place. It’s like having a built-in compression stuff sack and will accept up to an extreme cold weather bag. The bottom of the pack also offers canteen/Nalgene pockets on either side as well as straps to secure extra gear such as rigid sleeping pads.

Additional Features:
•Fully adjustable Yoke with 6 points of vertical tuning
•Carry Handle
•Adjustable waist belt with integrated removable lumbar support
•PALS webbing for MOLLE attachment
•Top loading with compression strap closure
•Hard sewn zippers allow the user to change the overall storage capacity of the pack with interchangeable front flaps such as the Direct Action Assault Pack which also fits the rear of the TYR Tactical PICO Armor Carrier
•Front loading via heavy duty #10 zippers on the right & left side of the pack
•Attachment points allow the user to change the overall storage capacity of the pack with interchangeable caps. Each pack comes complete with a Large cap
•Side compression straps allow the user to the overall capacity of the pack when areas are not in use
•Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used on the internal portions of the vest for comfort

The Huron 68 liter Assaulter Sustainment Pack Is made from 500D Cordura as well as TYR Tactical’s PV material in key areas for incredible strength and abrasion resistance. The full Huron line will be released 15 June, 2015 from www.TYRtactical.com.

Huron Tactical – 32l Assaulter Sustainment Pack with Direct Action Assault Pack

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

  
This is the second installment in a three-part exclusive sneak peek at Huron Tactical’s new pack and clothing line. Today, we’ll cover the 32 liter Assaulter Sustainment Pack with Direct Action Assault Pack. The pack itself is a hybrid top/panel loader design with an internal frame. The internal frame of the pack is constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber. Huron’s 32l Assaulters Sustainment Pack is low profile and uses both 500D Cordura as well their hybrid PV material in key areas for incredible strength and abrasion resistance.

  

32 liter Assaulter Sustainment Pack

The 32 Liter model is the smallest of Huron Tactical’s new line of packs. Unlike the external frame of other Huron packs, it also incorporates an internal frame and this frame is set up for wear with or without armor. It comes standard with a Large Cap which is removable and other models are also available.

• Cubic Liters: 32 (Main Body, Large Cap, Nalgene Bottle Pockets)
• Dim: 19”H x 11.25”W x 7.75”D

As the yoke and waist belt are adjustable for height using a PALS-style attachment, it’s imperative you take the time to set it up properly for comfort.

The ergonomic, adjustable waist belt has integrated, removable lumbar support and is very comfortable. It is easily tightened by pulling forward on the straps.

One of the features I really like is the top opening. It is a rolltop closure that sits independently below the Cap. It is Velcro closed and secured via SR buckles meaning you can control your load and keep your gear a little drier.

Additional Features:

•Carry Handle
•Pals webbing for MOLLE attachment
•Four integrated expandable side pockets for a Nalgene bottle or canteen
•Hard sew zippers allow the user to change the overall storage capacity of the pack with interchangeable front flaps.
•Front loading via heavy duty #10 zippers on the right & left side of the pack
•Attachment points allow the user to change the overall storage capacity of the pack with interchangeable caps
•Side compression straps allow the user to the overall capacity of the pack when areas are not in use
•Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used on the internal portions of the vest for comfort.
•Yoke load levelers adjust the pack vertically and horizontally which assists in reducing fatigue

DAAP

You’ll also notice a large pouch of sorts on the back of the 32l ASP. That’s actually a Direct Action Assault Pack that uses zips and snaps to attach to the main bag, just like it does in the PICO family of armor vests from TYR Tactical. This allows for a lot of flexibility as it can be carried to an ORP attached to the pack and then transitioned to the vest for actions on the objective. It includes shoulder straps so it can also be worn stand alone, but increases the load capacity and organization options when used in conjunction with a larger pack.

The DAAP features 1” daisy chain gear loops and 2 rows, 2 columns PALS for attachment capabilities. DAAP incorporates the same integrity as the Huron Assaulters Sustainment Rucksack System and features a reinforced gusset around the bottom of the pack, internal mesh storage pocket, internal hydration pocket with top hydration port and a removable beavertail for storing helmet or transitional garments.

Huron Tactical – Approach Anorak

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

This is the first installment of a three-part exclusive sneak peek at Huron Tactical’s new pack and clothing line. While I showed you the new Huron Tactical Smock as well as the Approach Anorak back in January, I finally got my hands on one of the Anoraks and I’ve got to say that it’s my favorite new Huron product.  

I worn the Huron Smock last week while hunting in New Zealand at Woodbury Safari Lodge. It’s late Fall there and the conditions change by the minute. It can go from cold wind and rain to warm sunshine in an instant, but the Anorak’s full side zips allow you to vent on the fly as well as facilitate rapid donning and doffing in the event you need to add or shed underlayers. The DWR coated four-way stretch softshell fabric also does an excellent job of repelling water, even in rain.

Additionally, the Approach Anorak incorporates nonslip elbows, a 1/4 front zip, removable hood, zippered bicep pockets with Velcro field for ID patches and an excellet Kangaroo pocket that sits atop a large zippered handwarmer pocket. Both of these chest mounted pockets feature elastic holders for M16-style magazines for a total of two per pocket. Finally, they’ve added a Cordura panel along the rear hem for sitting on ice or on other wet areas.

It is not quite as generously cut as the Huron Smock but I still recommend going down a size unless you are pairing it with a high loft insulation layer underneath. I usually wore it over a Merino base layer and Gen 2 Naga Hoodie from Arc’teryx LEAF and was very comfortable, even while sitting.

For all of these reasons, it has made the list of kit I recommend.
