ITS Tactical (Imminent Threat Solutions) imparts useful knowledge, skills and solutions to help people explore further and overcome threats they may encounter along the way. Part of that mission involves a thorough evaluation of gear in order to determine the best tools to take along on the journey. So we reached out to the folks at ITS to get their insights on the carry gear that really hit the mark in 2016/2017…
Built on the proven Khard 30, the Assault 30
integrates positive upgrades when it comes to shoulder strap and waist belt padding. The top lid pocket has also been downsized to prevent items being lost in the abyss. Key to the design is a large clamshell opening with reinforced internal pack stays and better interior loop to manage modular pockets. While void of much internal organization, save the side and top pockets, the end-user configuration options are a huge draw to this bombproof pack.
Perfect for use as a small commuter pack, the Blade 20
provides extreme organization for key daily-use items like a laptop, folders and cables. There’s even a purpose built garment storage section, a discreet small-of-the-back pocket and plenty of features that are sure to satisfy any organizational enthusiast. If you’re looking to blend in, the Nightshade colorway offers a good grey man option as well.
The focus on functionality and attention to detail is visible throughout the design of the S.H.A.D.O. Pack
. The end result is a superbly constructed daypack that works as anything from a well-organized range pack, to a couple-of-days camping pack, to a carry-on friendly 5-day trip pack, to a comfortable everyday carry pack.
