Tactical backpacks are perfect for that bro who wants to kick things up a notch. Whether you’re going full-on survival mode in some deep woods, planning a trip to the gun range, or, uh, let’s say more sensitive missions, you’re going to need something strong, something to carry all your gear, and something that’s not gonna get in your way. You need a tactical backpack.
Of course, not all tactical backpacks are created equal. You don’t want one that is gonna fall apart on you at the worst possible moment. And so, friend as I am to you and your tactical needs, I’ve done some research for you and found these 15 best tactical backpacks perfect for all your survival needs.
This tactical backpack is one of Amazon’s best sellers, and it’s no wonder why. Perfect for a three-day excursion or mission, this 40L bag is heavy duty and can fit all your gear. And the Molle webbing system allows you to attach other tactical gear to the pack, giving you tons of options that will satisfy all your needs.
Of course, your needs could also be much smaller and more specific, and in that case, I would suggest this tactical sling bag, which is basically the same as the 40L REEBOW, just shrunk down to fit your needs. It still has the molle webbing, and is still big enough to carry a large tablet, so you still have plenty of options, just a smaller base.
This bag has PALS webbing all over it, which pretty much serves the same purpose as the Molle webbing, and with a 40L capacity and a water-resistant exterior, you should be able to carry plenty of gear without worrying about it. The best part of this bag, though, is that it has a professional computer compartment, so you can take your laptop with you and it will be kept safe and sound while running, climbing, or whatever tactical business you need to get up to.
This 35L bag is equipped with Molle webbing, and has a hydration compartment, which can hold a 2.5L bladder. The tube is then fed through the top of the bag for easy access. It also has a wide variety of belts and harnesses to make carrying both easy and comfortable, important for those long excursions.
This bag is a little more expensive, but, well, you get what you pay for. That’s because this bag is specifically designed for use by military/law-enforcement personnel. It has a laser cut combination Molle/PALS design, which allows for tons and tons of extra gear space if you need it, and is infrared treated which will help keep you from showing up in night vision. This is a heavy-duty bag for heavy-duty bros.
This 37L bag is a solid tactical backpack with Molle design and all that good stuff. But what takes it from sold tactical bag to one of the best of the best is that it comes with two attachable/detachable packs, which gives you storage capacity and versatility that very, very few – if any – tactical backpacks can match.
If staying hydrated on the move is your primary concern, then consider this pack, which is a 2.5L bladder that you strap right to your back and go. But it also has a small pack for your gear so you’re not out there naked. It’s sleek, it’s economical, and it’s a must if you need to stay hydrated without stopping.
This 35L Backpack is designed with your comfort in mind, as it’s thick, decompressed shoulder straps reduce the stress on your shoulders, allowing you to go longer and harder out in the field. It’s water and tear resistant and, of course, it features that killer Molle webbing.
That word “expandable” kinda catches the eye, doesn’t it? Well, it should, because this already large 40L backpack expands to 48L, meaning you can carry just about anything in there that you need. The shoulder straps even include two pockets for your electronics, so you can carry them without having to dig through your bag.
An assault pack! Now we’re talking, baby. This heavy-duty bag has seven compartments, including two smaller dedicated compartments on the side for your finer gear. It also has a special compartment designed to fit two 3L water bladders, which is more than just about any tactical backpack offers.
The best part about this bag is that it is wonderfully built. A triple coat of polyurethane makes it water resistant, and a final Teflon coat means the elements will be your bag’s bitch. All the nylon is military grade, and each stress point is reinforced with even more military grade material. Basically, this bag will take anything you or nature or whatever the hell you get into can throw at it.
Yup, that’s a gun. That’s because this bag is designed with one thing in mind: holding all your weapons and ammo. And, perhaps more importantly, holding them in a way that keeps them neat, clean and easy to access.
This tactical daypack is one of the highest rated on Amazon, with an average star rating of 4.8/5. That’s a lot of happy customers. And since the bag is made by SOG Specialty Knives, you know that this bag is built with hard bastards in mind. The Molle design adds to the fun, and hey, you aren’t beating this price.
G.P.S. Handgunner Backpack
This pack takes the range backpack and specializes it even further. The high-density foam carrying compartment carries four handguns vertically, for both efficient and safe storage that’s also easy to access. And it has plenty of smaller pockets perfect for all your ammo. This is Clint Eastwood’s dream pack.
This imported bag is huge, built for long excursions. And it’s built so that it can take whatever those long excursions can throw at it. Made from water-resistant 1050 Denier nylon (military grade is around 1000), it was designed by Kyle Lamb, a special forces combat veteran, so… yeah, this bag, “built like a tank” according to one happy user review, is not just a great tactical backpack, it is perhaps the great tactical backpack.
