Gear Review: Monkey Paks Tactical Backpack Bundle with 2.5L Hydration Water Bladder

Out of the box, this Monkey Pak bundle includes everything you need for a reliable bug out bag or weekend camping trip.

Durability begins with the selection of materials.

The 600 denier weight is a good compromise between being tough and being light.

This rugged material can also be water-repellant. Not mind you, water-resistant.

That means that whatever is at the package closest to the cloth will get a bit wet in a torrential rain but it will not get completely wet.

Light rain will be no issue.

If you would like more rain resistance buy an aftermarket waterproof spray, spray it on your Monkey Pak backpack and now you’ve got waterproof stuff.

Where’s My Stuff?

Fortunately you’ll never have to say that with the Monkey Paks Military Army Style Backpack because, in addition to its numerous internal organizers, you’ve got five compartments to store your equipment in.

Only crappy backpacks will have you rooting around in the middle of the jungle for something in your package.

Whether you are putting together a bugout pack or weekender, multiple compartments ensure that you are organized enough to know where everything is.

The organization of the pack from a cost standpoint, makes this worthwhile purchase.

Looking beyond the dollar signs, a hydration pack is a good complement to a backpack that is military.

Just think about how you would typically have a drink out from the trail: stop, unhitch your own pack, take your own water container out, pop or twist the cap, choose your drink, replace the contents on your pack then hitch back the pack up your back.

Not only can there be a time benefit to on-the-go drinking but you still get much hydration if the terrain is not friendly to you taking a bit of a break to drink – you also get lifeline while slogging through waist-high water or knee-high.

This package is MOLLE compatible.

You may buy any number of MOLLE attachments such as canteens, knife sheaths , compass kits, along with others letting this tote a range of alternatives.

Here’s a selection of what you can add to the bag.

  • Molle Water Bottle
  • Molle Compact EDC pouch
  • Molle Flashlight
  • Molle Utility Pouch

As wonderful as this bag may seem, there have been a few complaints regarding the construction of the bag. Some customers have said that the bag isn’t truly MOLLE compatible, as they use Velcro instead.

Another concern is that because there is a lack of interior dividers, it could be problematic when looking for some items, which in an emergency situation, could be disastrous.

Another concern a customer pointed out is the nylon straps of the bag are very slick. The plastic clasps doesn’t appear to have teeth on them, so you may have to tie off the strap so that the nylon doesn’t slip through.
