CMP from Virginia on May 01, 2018
This bag is a great value and provides all of the features I require for travel and for everyday carry. Plenty of organization and pouches for my needs. The hoop and hang through area serves as a great extra storage area when not used for rifle carry. The bag looks good and seems to be constructed from heavy duty material. Why not five star? I would like to see a zipper closure for the rain fly pocket on the bottom of the pack and I would also like to see lockable zippers for the main storage pocket. One last matter - I would also like to receive extra compression straps for upper and lower use or at least have the ability to purchase a set.

Nice bag for everyday use and travel.
The volume is just enough for 1 day journey.
If the series provide side pockets for water bottle or small items would be more practical.
Overall, it's a good bag to grab.

Glad I chose this as my first tactical pack
Chuck Nelson from Alberta on Apr 11, 2017
This is an amazing pack! I use it for school and will use it for hunting with the rifle sleeve in the fall. I highly recommend it!

The only unfortunate thing I can say about this bag is they do not ship directly to Canada. I finally managed to get my pack when some friends visited their parents in the US and brought the bag back with them. I have been using it for about a month now and am very impressed with it. The fit and finish of the bag is exceptional. The organization of the different sections is well thought out and functional. The size of the bag is perfect for commuting and taking on patrol. I have used many other brands, (5.11, Maxpedition, Condor, Tru Spec,) and this has been the best bag that I have used. I have recommend First Tactical gear to my colleagues. I will be purchasing other bags and gear depending on friends travel to the US.
Kenny L from Modesto, CA on Mar 25, 2017
Awesome pack as it is the perfect size for anything. From hiking to school it works well as a day pack -of course- and is bigger than the AVG size school pack so it holds well.

The only thing that may be a downside is it has internal water bottle holder , so you need to buy an external, and no practical way for a camelpak or drink hose.

Overall great 1-day size pack.
Steve Ingersoll from North Carolina on Jan 03, 2017
I ordered a Specialist 1-Day backpack back towards the end of November and ever since receiving it I have been using it as my EDC bag for work in a federal prison. So far so good. The stitching has held up very well and the bag is very comfortable. The organization is pretty well thought out also. I really only have one observation that lead me to make a minor modification to the bag.

My previous bag (a tactical tailor product) has double knotted 550 cord zipper pulls which I love. They make getting into the bag a much smoother affair. I have since replaced all of the zipper pulls on my Specialist 1-Day pack with the same 550 cord pulls and the difference is significant. The zippers operate much more smoothly now. I think a switch to this style of zipper pull in production would be a sound choice. Thanks!
RIC SMALL from California on Oct 17, 2016
I wanted a day pack with all the nice features. This pack has it all. I found a safe place for my glasses when out having fun. The compression straps make it very easy to balance a load. It is easy to add side storage with a couple of add-on pouches for water and tools. The straps are comfy. Great all around pack.
Jason from San Diego on Sep 30, 2016
Love this backpack. Take it with me on patrol daily. Top quality without a doubt
JMW from Indiana on Jan 29, 2016
Overall a good tactical bag, but there is very little information available on this bag. Would like to see FT make a video on the bag as they have with their other products.
Bag is good quality material, lightweight, and good stitching, seems that it will hold up very well to daily carry.
Would like to see more pockets for organization in the bag. There should be a pocket on the inside front of the admin pocket, there is a ton of lost space there. Also, the inside front of the main compartment has a small mesh zip pocket at the top, with long stash pocket below. The stash pockets are not very user friendly and do not seem to fit well within the bag. Would replace those stash pockets with more mesh pockets or another type of full zip pocket.
