Warrior Gear has given the 64 Lower Ruck compartment the upgrade it's needed. Well stitched with gusseted pouches, and steel slide locks, this rucksack will take years of abuse either on the move or while exiting a CC-130J. I've jumped Warrior Gear's rucksacks for years and they've performed flawlessly despite hard landings and multiple exercises/deployments throughout the years. Warrior Gear's 64 Ruck Sack components will work on a variety of frames including the ALICE frame and Down East Inc. 1603 frame. Looking forward to many more years using their rucksack products and seeing where they innovate next.
For those looking for a cost effective upgrade to increase the modularity of the CAF Issue tac-vest, look no further. These side panels allows the end user to range their hip carried loads on the vest to accommodate any MOLLE capable pouch with ease. Warrior Gear ensures panels are well stitched and made to last. Highly recommend using needle-nose pliers to assist with installation when running double sided velcro tabs through the issued steel slide locks.
Great stuff, MilSpec, and A fantastic colour match to the cordura and loop warriorgear sells. I use it on all my gear.

Picked up a couple austialpine straps, super light, well put together
Great items. The shoulder pad has lots of room in the straps. It has a quick release buckle on both sides, and a central buckle across the chest. The straps attach to the bottom of your frame by mobius loop and a buckle at the top. The pads are thick.
The yoke has plenty of strap so you can get a tight fit on the frame and the pad is a good thickness for cushioning.
Awesome quality and it shipped fast, many options too
Riggers belt in black. Holds my pants and my holster well. Had a challenge with first belt received. All was made right super quick. Enjoying the new belt
Canadian flag in camo with GITD inserts. Very bright when dark. Great.
Great quality and fast shipping
Excellent product, and excellent service.
good quality product and fast shipping. I will definitely keep doing business with warriorgear.ca
Like the title says, I really like this bag. It has a lot of features I look for in a pack for longer range/ higher capacity for gear trips. After rucking with it for about 25km, I am confident it will stand up to the abuse I will put it through, and if it does get damaged, its design seems simple enough to repair. My review will largely discuss why I think this one is worth the price premium over the standard pattern 64 pack because I was going back and forth between both.
Here's why: For one, MOLLE. I think MOLLE attachment capability really is the standard anymore for most gear manufactures when it comes to pouches that extend the capability of a bag. It also has a large molle section on either side of the bag in addition to the front pouches making for lots of room. Ammunition, first-aide, or just extra pouches in general to organise kit is going to make this feature worth the extra spend. The snow collar (which is removable because it's mounted with velcro) is a nice touch as well for helping keep kit dry and secure. Since there is a map pocket on the underside of the lid (great for holding papers or other broad flat items). I feel like accessing that pocket would be frustrating without the collar, because items would likely fall out of the main compartment, or just be exposed to the elements. There is a drawstring at the top of the main compartment to limit this if you took the collar out, but because pulling the drawstring on the bag will interfere with the shape of the bag including the molle panel on the side, I would not rely solely on it. Seeing as you bought a pack that is for military, tactical or hunting use I would strongly question the thought of removing the snow collar for weight savings. Zippers on the bag will probably come down to more of a point of personal preference. Realistically I bought this version of the bag because I like zippers more than I like side release buckles, so that was another point for this bag over the original. Finally, and I consider this to be more of a surprising feature, is the floating lid on this version. It is a well thought out feature for cramming that extra piece of awkward gear on this bag. Foam sleeping pads or longer items that you didn't want to secure solely with a7as would work well here.
Upon receiving that bag, I found there to be little-to-no loose threads, and the workmanship was great overall. I have no concerns about the construction of the bag going forward. The buying experience was also fantastic, and the turnaround time was very reasonable considering this is fairly niche, made to order gear from a smaller business. I would be happy to purchase this bag again if it was somehow lost or damaged beyond repair. I sincerely hope the one I got gets approved for use on my weekend ex's and my upcoming IODP1.1 course, it would be a huge help. Otherwise, I will still enjoy putting miles on this pack rucking and camping. Buy Canadian, in this case, the price they are offering is fantastic value for what you get. The only other point to note is that I am running this on a copy of a pattern 64 frame I built myself, so I can't really speak to it's fit on an actual jump ruck frame. However, I can say that dimensionally the frame I have is almost identical to a pattern 64, and I have no issues.
Thanks for the outstanding quality of your products.
