Dragon Egg MKII Now Available!

Updated version of our best-selling backpack now in stock on the US and EU/International online store

Direct Action gear’s ‘Dragon Egg®’ backpack has been one of the best sellers in the company’s so-called “Legacy Line”. But never being ones to sit on their laurels, the company recently announced an upgraded version. That upgraded, MKII version is now available for sale in a variety of solid colors and can be purchased today through the company’s US and European / International online store.

The Dragon Egg MKII® is 25+ liter capacity backpack designed to fulfill the needs of an LE or military patrol pack, as well as serving the hunting, hiking or EDC user as well. The pack features two hydration bladder pockets – one in the main compartment and additional in the zipped back part. The rear pocket, thanks to a padded sleeve, can be used for safely carrying a multi-band radio, or a notebook, laptop or tablet PC (up to a 15’’ screen).

The MKII version also features redesigned side pockets that have been enlarged to better accommodate 1L Nalgene bottles. Another change to the side pockets is the removal of the zipper to expand them – they are now equipped with elastic for expansion.

Like all products in the Direct Action portfolio, the Dragon Egg MKII® is made from top-quality components – such as Cordura® fabrics, YKK® zippers, and Duraflex® buckles – and incorporates cutting-edge features like laser-cut PALS compatible panels. The Dragon Egg® also incorporates the patented Combat Vent System® – an innovative ventilation system that provides increased comfort for the user. Made of contoured foam pieces with multiple air channels encased in highly breathable mesh fabric , the Combat Vent System® keeps the pack off the back. This enhances air circulation preventing heat build-up and sweating, while the stiff foam ensures comfort and stability.

The Dragon Egg MKII® is available in Adaptive Green, Black, Coyote Brown, Olive Green, Shadow Grey – and is in stock and available to order now at Direct Action’s US / North America online store and at the Europe / International online store.

    If that didn’t have PALS all over it I’d like it as a 3-day pack because it looks like it could be discrete enough with some work, but the PALS trend kills it for me.

      There are for more better, civilian offerings if that’s what you’re looking for.

      @BlueFalcon, Have you looked at the VERTX line of bags? Far more discreet and yet very gear friendly.

      I have several of their bags and right nor for Labor Day they have a 40% off weekend. The EDC Ready Pack is a nice daily bag that holds a 15” laptop, regular cost $150 but 40% gets it at $90

    They need to work on a Mk III in order to accommodate one of those 21″ screen, 14 lbs laptops that Acer is coming out with.

      For reals… the biggest mistake I’ve made for work travel was assuming I could shoehorn an ASUS G75–the PRC-77 of laptops–into some type of backpack that doesn’t scream neckbeard videogame dork. Great laptop for long trips (big screen, big keyboard, dual HDDs) once you get it on a desk… getting it to said desk, however, is quite the ordeal at times.
