I have always liked the concept of making your knife sheath into a compact survival kit. This idea has been taken to its functional extreme by products like the ESEE Pack Kit which is actually a pack with a sheath inside rather than the more traditional sheath with a pack on the outside. I think it is a really slick concept and I am happy to see a new option from Cooper Tactical Gear.
The EDC Cooper Tactical Pack is different take on the knife based survival kit. It is similar to the ESEE Pack Kit in its function but different in its form. It is a pack that can be carried a variety of different ways and can be used to carry everything from a knife, to flashlights, to fire starting tools, and whatever else you can fit.
It features a ton of really well thought out organization features. There are internal and external slip pouches, elastic loops galore, and internal and external hook and loop fields for customizable organization potential. I especially like the card carrier that can be affixed to the outside of the pouch. It would be perfect for carrying reference cards like those from ESEE.
The pack is constructed from 1000D nylon and features Lenzip zippers that are made in the USA. Zulu Nylon Gear constructs the pack for Cooper Tactical Gear so you know it will be bomb proof.
I haven’t even scratched the surface of all the features of this pack. You will definitely want to check out the EDC Cooper Tactical Pack on the Cooper Tactical Gear website.
Man I really like this idea too. The beauty of this (from my perspective at least) is that it can easily go into a backpack, brief case, vehicle etc without needing to keep track of a bunch of individual components. I like the idea of having a “get home bag” but really lugging around a second bag is just impractical for me. The small size makes this a great compromise – so it actually see some use.
Also having the knife on the inside means you could take this out of your main bag and not show everyone the 4″ blade strapped on the front of it – great urban/suburban carry (assuming you are following all local laws).
GREAT point. Thanks Dan.
