If you have money (lots of money) and a penchant for travelling light (or a penchant for outdoors adventures that the rest of us probably don't want to know anything about) you can buy a backpack designed for your special missions.

Gear: Multi-Purpose Pack By FirstSpear

The Multi-Purpose Pack is a backpack by FirstSpear that's a packer's dream come true, whether you're an extreme hiker, avid adventurer who likes to carry light, or even just a journalist (because these days "journalist" means "one who has to write, take photographs, and produce video content all at once" and lug all the equipment around for doing so).

Looking at the product photography it would seem that this pack is designed for gun-toting Americans or field medics (it was originally designed "as a medical pack for a US Special Operations unit", according to the product page) but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have uses for the rest of us.

If you want it you'll get a snazzy bag weighing less than a kilogramme (1.8 pounds to be exact) measuring approximately 47x23x20 centimetres (18.5x9x8 inches) that includes a hydration compartment; padded shoulder straps; five external pockets, some with their own interior pockets; and compression straps, which, when used correctly, push the contents of the bag upwards to distribute everything evenly inside and stop items from dropping to the bottom. There are also elastics to help to secure items separately in the pockets.

It doesn't come cheap, though. Because it is a special commission there is limited stock (in Ranger Green, Manatee Grey, or Woodland, to suit the camouflage preferences of your chosen environment) and it's US$247.37, or about R3200 according to the current exchange rate, which could change at any minute.


You can buy it online at the FirstSpear web site.
