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

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



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.

The full line will be released 15 June, 2015 from www.TYRtactical.com.

    Beautiful craftsmanship, great design, and looks very solid. I would have to say as the assault pack attached to a mission pack is nothing new but one thing we learned was to always attach an assault pack at the top to keep weight vertical vs pushing weight further out. No hit on Tyr, they are a top rate company and make great products. Kudos on going back to what we know works.

      To that extent, my initial observations make me think that I’ll prefer the old ILBE over this

      Thinking behind docking off the back vs. top is going to the prone with helmet. Notice that the system stops at the shoulders.

      What really sucks is that the DA pack kinda has to be much heavier than a breakaway pack “should” be, as it invariably contains A&E, batteries and water.

      That system is deep. But if conditions require you to carry that much crap into the fight, that’s how to do it if reacting to contact is in the cards.

      Lots of deer scat where they took those pics.

      It absolutely should be a hit on Tyr if they are building packs that move the CG further from the body. If they are trying to ignore physics, I wonder who the hell is doing their T&E, or initial biomechanic research, or…

    It’s a CFP-90 with class.

    Pretty nice effort. Looks a lot like a Mystery Ranch pack, but I suppose there’s only so many ways to skin a cat. I can’t imagine adding weight further away from the body is a good idea, but maybe it’s meant for shorter movements.
