This pack is ideal for any quick grab, need it now, not worried if I’ve missed anything kind of a bag. Fill it with lots of shtf gear, tactical gear or whatever your mission may entail.
Once you strap this pack on, the comfort level is great! I have the Condor 3 day assault pack on my back and it feels like I can have it strapped there for days or weeks!
The Condor Assault Pack is made from 1000 denier tear and wear resistant nylon, which is the best material in my opinion for a lightweight and tough backpack or bugout bag. It also makes the pack water resistant in this design by Condor.
The pack straps are: 3.5″ wide and have enough strap padding at .75″ or 3/4″ at the widest part at the shoulder.
The straps never felt like they were binding or cutting into my shoulders, even when loaded down with gear. In addition, the increased comfort from the thicker straps and padding provide added airflow, ending in a cooler carrying body condition. Important for daytime exertion and hotter climates.
I love the versatility of the Condor pack as well. With enough pouches, do-rings, straps and Mole webbing, this pack can carry a variety of misc gear. It also sports a sternum strap that helps with distributing the load and stabilizing it.
It is also an adjustable sternum straps that is a great feature to adjust to varying persons and loads when carrying with this pack.
All of the stitching is double stitched for toughness and survivability. Condor has really thought of it all with this pack, really put the extra effort and expense to make this backpack a tough hombre.
The color and camo options are nice as well, all of the popular camouflage patterns are here, I personally like the A-TACS pattern for mixed terrain.
It’s nice that Condor thought of including all of these varying options for their well thought out pack. The colors and camo patters available are: Olive Drab, A-TACS, Multicam, Black, Tan and ACU
Some more great features and why I would recommend this pack for anyone that asks, from serious tactical to bugout bag needs and everything in between.
The hip strap: what a great design, I haven’t really found a pack in this category that actually was as comfortable as Condor’s hip strap system.
These hip straps are extremely important, helping to distribute the heavy loads, up to 80% better than without one, or with a poorly designed strap system. The Condor Assault Pack excels in this department.
Overall, I highly recommend this pack for your tactical needs, carrying gear, mule pack or bug-out bag. From the hydration pouches, the many straps and d-ring attach points and sturdy design, this pack has it all. It’s also at a good price point for the quality.

There are many views on the subject of the strobe function on a flashlight. Some people think it is absolutely worthless and just an added cost while others say that it is another great tool to have in your arsenal.
Over the past few years more and more police are carrying and using tactical strobe flashlights. Now when I say tactical flashlight I mean the types of flashlights that are rugged and used fr tactical situations. These are completely different from the traffic strobe flashlights that they carry as well.
If so many police officers are flocking to these flashlights there must be a reason. They even have whole classes on how to use strobe flashlights for police officers. That is because when you are in a survival situation and fearing for your life you really want to have every option and ever advantage you can get.
When it comes to the effects of strobe lights on humans you start to understand why this can be such an asset. Back in the early 1950′s a man by the name of Dr. Bucha studied the effects of strobe light exposure. He studied and investigated helicopter crashes that could not be explained. That is when he discovered the dizzying and disorientation effects of light strobe on the human brain.
He interviewed some of the surviving crew members from the crash and found that they were looking upwards and got disorientated from the sun strobing through the helicopter blades. The disorientation was to severe that it caused them to crash the helicopter. This has come to be known as the Bucha effect.
While the outcome of strobe is not new the technology of today is rapidly changing and growing to produce stronger strobe that are tuned to different pulses for maximum effect on the human brain.
There are many benefits when it comes to using this type of flashlight.
Many people believe that you can:
While some may argue these claims others feel they are 100% true. A strobe can disorient a person for the simple reason of the after image. A strobe light will create a temporary picture imprint because of the intense light and brief exposure. The after image that you get is determined by how long the strobe is on and how bright the light. Basically if the strobe is fast enough the brain will have a hard time keeping up with the frequencies.
If the strobe is set the right frequency you can disrupt the reset of their photoreceptor with will disrupt their vision. Since their brain is not able to keep up with the input it will naturally try to fill in the blanks and make an image up.
While this is great for tactical reasons it can also be a problem. What you don’t think about is even if you are the one using the strobe, if you are in a dark room you can effectively dose yourself with the strobe as well as your opponent. This means that if your opponent moves slowly enough they can move around without your eyes or brain noticing.
This tactic also is great for pausing your opponent. When humans are faced with bright lights or flashing bright lights right in their vision it becomes very hard to thing or formulate a plan.
My opinion is that in order to get the most out of the strobe flashlight you really need to know how to use it in a tactical way. Becoming proficient in this can prove very beneficial is a survival situation. When ever you can gain an edge or upper hand take it right? Well with this function on a flashlight I feel that if used properly you can have an sever advantage against anyone.

Jetbeam is a great company that I’ve been trying out for my new flashlight purchases and reviews. They feature high tech LED lights that are rugged,well designed and use high end materials.
The variety of models and sizes also is a huge plus, as some manufacturers only put out several models lately it seems.
They really have become a favorite light for me and are used by others such as law enforcement (I’d like to get their discount), military, search and rescue and other special units.
The Jetbeams flashlight reviews are based on factors including: lightness and overall weight, max lumens, battery life (at max and low settings), cost, durability and design and overall rating.
Jetbeam makes some of my favorite LED flashlights including some nice tactical flashlights and smaller compact flashlights as well as large format flashlights.
Flashlights made by Jetbeam are really rugged in design and I’ve owned a few Jetbeam lights small smaller to large.
I love the lumen output these little lights put out along with the seemingly extended amount of battery life both at low and high settings they seem to have.
The demonstration specs and images that the BC40 flashlight puts out is simply amazing brightness and clarity.
The punch that this little light has is incredible.
It is definitely seeing is believing with this flashlight manufacturer. Take a look at this well designed flashlight rated below… Also check out Jetbeam flashlight latest prices here.
