Preview: Tasmanian Tiger Modular Trooper Pack

posted on June 22, 2021

Built on the company’s V2 Plus Carrying System, the Tasmanian Tiger Modular Trooper Pack (MTP) is a 55-liter-capacity backpack designed for use with medium-to-heavy loads that is adjustable to conform to myriad body types in myriad environments.

Constructed of durable Cordura 700 denier fabric (shown), the MTP features laser-cut MOLLE webbing on the front of its two exterior pockets, along each side of the pack and on the back panel of the main compartment—providing a plethora of customization options. In addition, the pack’s YKK zipper guides allow top-load capability in conjunction with full, main-compartment access. Hook-and-loop fabric provided within the Modular Trooper pack adds to the unit’s ability to supply operators and civilians alike with gear storage and security solutions.

The versatility in the Tasmanian Tiger Modular Trooper Pack comes from the company’s V2 Plus system. Included are reinforced fiberglass bars that evenly distribute the pack’s load so as to not stress any single point of contact with the wearer. Generous padding is included to provide surprising comfort for during long treks. Both the backpack’s shoulder straps and hip belt can be adjusted for fit, with the latter being removable entirely, making for a capable warrior belt-pack with laser-cut MOLLE for attaching firearm holsters and additional gear packs.

Don’t let wet weather hold you back either; the Modular Trooper Pack is supplied with an integrated rain cover to further protect stored valuables. The Modular Trooper Pack is available in black, olive, coyote or MultiCam (500 denier). Empty weight is 93 ozs. Overall dimensions are 24” X 13” X 7” and retail price is set for $389 (shown).
