Grey Ghost Gear Impact 24 Backpack

 

Wallace, ID – Grey Ghost Gear is revealing a new product to join their already diverse lineup of backpacks: the Impact 24.

Having designed a plethora of bags and backpacks in all shapes and sizes with specific civilian, Law Enforcement, and military roles in mind, it goes without saying that Grey Ghost Gear has a solid product offering already. Which begs the question: why a new backpack and what does it do that the other bags did not?

The answers lie with Grey Ghost’s own Senior Product Designer, who made the bag when he was commuting via bike every day. “I needed a more vertical backpack with a specific pocket configuration that I had not seen yet in any of our existing bags. I kept experimenting with tiered exterior pockets for all the essentials I needed in an average 24-hour period like my phone, wallet & keys, etc.… along with space for bike tools, patch kit and an extra tube in case of a flat. Most importantly, I wanted to truncate the main compartment in favor of a third exterior pocket at the bottom with maximum depth,” said Stephen Crowe, the designer behind Impact 24. Originally intended to house premade meals, this bottom pocket is spacious enough for cameras, small drones and other sensitive items that would otherwise get crushed if tossed into the main compartment with other items.”

When the rest of the team at GGG saw the prototype, it was unanimous that it needed to join the ranks of Grey Ghost’s other urban-minded bags like the Gypsy or the Scarab. The main compartment of the Impact 24 is still roomy, despite the bottom wall that partitions it from the bottom pocket. Thanks to its structured walls, there’s plenty of protection for a larger drone, camera equipment, or a change of clothes. What really stands out are the organizational subtleties that were sprinkled in the right spots. There’s a laptop sleeve with an adjustable buckle, which is pretty standard these days. Flanking both sides however, are longer zippered pockets that are perfect for charging cords, snacks, or a couple wrenches. The front wall has a zippered mesh pocket, giving you more room for the aforementioned items.

Being constructed of Rip-Stop Nylon and 500-D Cordura® kept the bag lightweight and well balanced, perfect for anyone on the move; something you will appreciate if you ride your bicycle, motorcycle, skateboard or scooter to work. The structure and organized nooks and crannies are an immediate favorite for photographers and drone operators, including GGG’s own media department. “Being able to stow a small drone like a Mavic Pro in the bottom pocket, so that larger and heavier camera equipment can go into the main compartment, along with dedicated pockets for all the batteries, memory cards, power cords, docks, and lenses. “It really makes remote sessions easier without having to lug multiple cases or bags out into the field,” says Manuel Gutierrez, Grey Ghost’s wiz behind the lens.

The exterior of the Impact 24 has four strings of daisy chain loops that line the left and right sides and parallel the front pockets. Daisy chains are your friend, especially if you ever need to clip or lash extra gear to your pack using carabiners, webbing straps or cordage. You can hang almost anything from a backpack using a system like this, from solar power chargers to a wet coat or a tarp. Finally, a worthy host for your novelty carabiner collection!

The back of the Impact 24 has thick mesh-lined padding to ensure for a comfortable all-day ride without the infamous sweat stain down your back. The mesh encourages ample airflow to the back as well as the underside of the adjustable shoulder straps, making the Impact 24 a favorite daily commuter.
