Lightweight, tough and simple, the Trooper Light Pack is a modern military backpack made with an old fashioned eye for simplicity but with all the comforts of modern times.
All extra trinkets have been kept to a minimum and all the incorporated features are made with clever simplicity.
External measurements approx. 53 x 24 x 14 cm, capacity approx. 22 liters. Weight is only 800 grams!
A single roomy main compartment, closed with a drawcord and covered with a flap.
The main compartment has a sleeve and hanger for a hydration bladder with a 3L capacity and the main compartment has a single opening for the drinking hose.
The daypack has compression straps and open pouches for extra kit on the outside. The compression straps is a little short. They can barely cover a 1L nalgene bottle if the daypack is full.
The flap has a zippered pocket on the top for small items and a velcro area for a nametag or morale patch.
There’s lots of PALS webbing for attaching extra kit and a well padded, anatomical shoulder straps. They are adjustable both at the top and bottom.
The daypack is also equipped with a sternum strap to balance the load, and it’s removeable if not needed, as well as the adjustable waist belt.
It comes with a bright orange signal panel, attachable to the pack or damn near anywhere else too.
The material used is Tasmanian Tiger’s own T-rip, a Rip-Stop style polyamide, lightweight and very strong!
I have been very satisfied with the Trooper Light Pack 22. I have used it as a daypack on several hikes in Arizona and it has preformed without any problems. I especially like the adjustable shoulder straps, the large pocket on top of the flap and the access to a drinking system.
I’m not so satisfied with the short compression straps, and the material used for all the buckles. It seems they have been made by a thinner material than i.e. ITW NEXUX buckles. You can hear the difference when you clip them together. It’s more like a “piling” sound compared to a solid “CLIP”. The future and possibly cold weather will show if the buckles are as good as other quality buckles. I have to say that I’ve had no problems with the buckles on my hikes.
In general I have been very satisfied with the daypack, and have no problems recommending it to outer users.
