Carry Awards


The Carry Awards :: ITS Tactical Presents…

by , April 7, 2017
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…

Arc’teryx LEAF Assault 30

Arc’teryx LEAF Assault 30

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.

Arc’teryx Blade 20

Arc'teryx Blade 20

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.

Prometheus Design Werx S.H.A.D.O. Pack 28L

Prometheus Design Werx SHADO Pack

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.
