Mystery Ranch ASAP
Packing light and going fast… Well, sort of fast.
My GORUCK GR Echo as a Diaper Exchange Kit, Tactical. Only the basic kit.
So for the travel entry, I thought I’d show this internal configuration.
I like the idea of the First Aid Kit attached to the internal PALS to keep it at the top of the pack (easily accessible) the same goes for the Leatherman and Fenix flashlight.
There’s a Maxpedition organiser underneath that with the tag removed which is brilliant! Not so sure about having the RayBan’s and the GoPro so low down in the pack, I would have thought they’d get crushed.
Found here – oops, been saved so long the link no longer works. If it’s yours, speak up!
Fast Pack Friday – TAD Junkies
I found this image on the TAD Junkies Facebook group and wanted to share it, especially as this collection brings together so much of Triple Aught Design’s pack history.
The pack on the right is an old version of the FAST Pack EDC (showing just how hard-wearing the pack is!), next to it is a newer version of it’s younger brother, the Litespeed and in front of that is the Dispatch bag, TAD’s messenger style pack. There’s also a great collection of TAD pouches here. The Litespeed has an OP1 (I like the way it’s held up on Grimloc D-Rings). Its older brother has a GPP2 Pouch attached to the Transporter Tail. In the front, left to right, we have an RDDP2, two S2’s (I think), a GPP1 and another OP1. Excluding the OP1’s, all these pouches are no longer available new.
As far as patches go there is some heavy support of the Motus brand that Patrick Ma (former Founder & Creative Director of TAD) is now the Creative Director and Contributor for. I’ll be doing a few posts about Motus in the future, for now, enjoy the TAD goodness.
Fast Pack Friday – Guest submission
I got in touch with Taylor from Carryology who sent me these shots of his unique TAD Fast Pack Litespeed set up from a while ago. Carryology is great for anyone carrying anything from a plastic bag to anti-avalanche-burial packs so go check it out now.
The first thing that stands out is the modification to the fastenings. Taylor has replaced the ITW Nexus buckles with 1” Cobra buckles, plus a 1.5” buckle on the waist belt. This not only looks cool, but these buckles are amazingly rugged.
There’s a great selection of pouches here that add some storage options to the slim design of the Litespeed. There’s an OP1 Admin pouch attached to the PALS webbing underneath the Transporter Tail, an iComm on one side and a BC4 and S1 on the other side. The black out patches just finish off the whole ‘murdered out’ look.
Thanks to Taylor for sharing.
