Quick Look: First Tactical Tactix 3-Day Backpack

Adam Teeter

The Tactix Packs from First Tactical are feature-packed and well thought out. I’ve previously looked at the Tactix 0.5-Day (here and here) and the Tactix 1-Day as a contributor over on The Perfect Pack. The 3-Day version carries over many of the design characteristics, but blows them out to a pack that is around 62 liters in volume. This bag is seriously big. The pack has useful pockets and organization, and is covered with a laser-cut MOLLE-type platform to accept more pouches if you need them. First Tactical sent me their larger media pouch and it was a great addition on the shoulder strap for quick access to my iPhone 7. The main difference between this bag and the smaller variants (besides the volume) is that this bag includes the spacious side pockets to further segregate gear and allow for more quick access when needed.

I tried the pack with the optional waist belt, but found the frame sheet to be a little soft for transferring weight well to the hips, as compared to some of the more load-carriage focused packs I’ve used. The belt did help to make the bag more comfortable under a load. Despite that, I think this bag is particularly well suited to guys who need to haul bulky gear over shorter distances or for travel and do it in an orderly way.

As always, First Tactical delivers a high quality product that should last a long time. There are no glaring issues on this pack and I’d happily recommend it to users who need a big bag that keeps their kit well sorted.

Carry on all,
