Maxpedition TT26 Backpack 26L

A part of the Maxpedition Prepared Citizen line of nondescript tactical nylon products, the TT26 backpack provides the EDC- or bugout-minded user a practical way to discreetly transport a firearm larger than the typical handgun. Outwardly, the bag has an ordinary daypack appearance, but unfolding a zippered top flap allows it to accommodate a large-format pistol, SBR or takedown rimfire.

Constructed of 500-denier nylon fabric, the 1,586 cu.-in. pack weighs 2 lbs., 3 ozs. It measures 8½" deep by 11" wide by 19" tall (27" tall extended), and has 8½"x9" lower side pockets on the exterior. Top grab and side handles, 2½"-wide padded shoulder straps and a removable 1” sternum strap manage the load. Maxpedition includes front compression straps with field-replaceable Duraflex buckles for load security.

Access to the packs internals is available through a zippered opening across the unit’s top. Large, front-side access is provided, too. Inside are a laptop sleeve pocket for up to 15” devices, top and bottom side mesh pockets and a padded bottom. YKK zipper pulls are shrink-wrapped with plastic fobs on the ends for easy purchase. Load stress points are double stitched for added reliability and long-term use.

Available colors for the TT26 daypack are Wolf Gray, Dark Blue, Black and OD Green. The TT26 comes triple coated for water resistance and color fastness. Internal padding is made of closed-cell foam for shock protection and water resistance. Maxpedition retails its TT26 for $184.
