The German special interest magazine Tactical Gear took three big size combat backpacks to test, recently. In the end, the winner is the TT Pathfinder MK II from Tasmanian Tiger.
The 75 liter combat backpack TT Pathfinder MK II achieved very good results for its load volume, carrying comfort, features as well as for the workmanship. Furthermore, the testers pointed out the very efficient V2 carrying system and were pleased about the Molle, which gives this pack plenty of options for an extension (modular system). Overall, this premium pack did an excellent job even in the toughest terrain.
The entire test report (only in German) can be found in Tactical Gear 02/2016.
Test report in the current issue of German “Tactical Gear” magazine
The current issue (3/2015) of the German “Tactical Gear” magazine looks at the TT Bug Out Pack by Tasmanian Tiger, and rates the universal 40-litre rucksack as first-class. Particular mention was made of the ventilated X Vent Zero Plus carrying System , which combines “exemplary carrying comfort” with “excellent moisture transportation on the back”. Other features that scored were the robust manufacture, generous space, wide range of storage options on the inside and the large number of Molle loops on the front and sides.
Three whole days in the great outdoors, completely cut off from civilisation without knowing what’s waiting around the corner – in this situation, you need an emergency pack that will hold anything and everything you need to survive outdoors. A Bug-Out-Bag (BOB) is the perfect companion for any eventuality.
The magazine “Tactical Gear” tested various backpacks for this very purpose in its 1/2015 issue.
The test started with a simulated three-day escape, during which time the escapee remained hidden in the forest until the situation was likely to have settled down.
The military backpack TT Raid Pack MK II was the test winner, and rated as a particularly “ingenious” model. The testers’ summary: “… The carrier system is rigid, yet well padded. It will do anything asked of it without complaint. The only time the backpack developed a dynamic of its own was with fast movements. … It was never difficult to balance the dynamics, and abseiling and climbing also worked very well. … And with its extremely reasonable price, this backpack deserved to win the test. …”
At the most important international industry show, IWA 2015, which achieved a new record in visitor numbers after its four days, the latest TASMANIAN TIGER collection was again extremely well received. Joachim Herrmann, the Bavarian Minister of the Interior, stopped off at the TASMANIAN TIGER stand during his visit to the trade fair, and listened avidly to the account of the company’s history and its products. This was the 15th time our brand, which is known as the premium provider of professional military and police equipment, had attended this event.
In addition to the current collection, the exhibits at the trade fair also included prototypes of special items in new camouflage colours. These items will be added to the product range from 2016, although some will be available from retailers this year.
The first items in PenCott camouflage Greenzone were presented, which provides excellent camouflage in Central Europe in particular. The TT Mission Pack, TT Chest Rig MK 2, various Pouches and other items of equipment will be available from July 2015, and other items will follow for the 2016 collection.
The new colour Coyote Brown was also presented, which provides excellent camouflage in deserts and urban areas, and is the standard colour of the US Marines. A best-of collection will be available from April 2015, and integrated fully in the TASMANIAN TIGER collection from 2016.
