The original Dragon Egg® backpack from Direct Action has consistently been one of the company’s best-selling products and has found a home among a wide variety of users – from commuters and hikers, to first responders, law enforcement tactical teams, and military special operations forces.
This new 30-litre capacity version should prove very capable for everyday use as well as being a good 3-day sized patrol pack. Like its predecessor, the Dragon Egg Enlarged® is made from a combination of Cordura® 500D nylon and laser cut laminate. The pack is currently manufactured in Black, Coyote Brown and Shadow Grey solid colors, and in genuine Crye Precision MultiCam® and PenCott-WildWood® camouflage patterns.
The main internal compartment features a zippered mesh pocket for small items, and the front compartment includes an internal organizer system for conveniently carrying and locating small tools, personal equipment, and cell phones or radios. The pack also features a back pocket that is padded with protective foam for safely carrying tablets or laptops (up to 15″ size). On the sides are pockets for water bottles or other items that you might want to have quick and easy access too. The pack also features two hydration system pockets to choose from – one internal and one external.
Making the Dragon Egg Enlarged particularly useful for tactical, SAR, and military users is the fact that the pack and the hip/waist belt include sections of laser-cut panels that are compatible with MOLLE / PALS configured pouches. The hip belt can be detached and used separately, or together with a pair of lightweight shoulder straps that are included with the pack.
Finally, one of the features of Direct Action’s backpacks that we’ve always loved is that the drag / carrying handles on top of the packs are made of a continuous length of paracord cleverly braided into shape. In an emergency, the handle can be unwound to deliver a 5.5 m length of cord.
The Dragon Egg Enlarged is in stock and available now on the Direct Action webstore for €139.00.
