Gear Insider

Direct Action Dragon Egg doesn’t stand out too much in the crowd, its organizer allows you to carry a lot of useful equipment on a daily basis, and the main compartment will fit what you need. At the same time, thanks to a convenient carrying system, a fairly compact structure and overall durability, the backpack can be easily used during a short trip to the forest, in the mountains or a bit of urbex.

It’s a smaller pack (25L capacity) which make it ideal to be used as a go bag or even daily EDC bag if you choose to do so.

Pack Config

DA markets the pack to elite operators and law enforcement. But it’s also perfect for those of us plain ol’ civilians that demand a pack that meets the same standards of those who put themselves and their gear in compromising situations.

It is a solid pack with great features and affordable pricing. The interior has good organization which suits most users. The pack has extra padding to make it more comfortable.
