My new Sniper Pack :)



The Phantom introduces a new type of tactical pack system; it’s the first product that provides an integrated drag bag and backpack. It allows you to carry your heavy weapon in the backpack, either with or without the concealing top-cover. If the cover is not mounted, you can withdraw a full-scale sniper weapon from the pack very quickly. Or, with the cover over the weapon, nobody needs to know what you are carrying. And if you leave the Control Clips undone, you can still pull the gun right out.

At left is shown the abrasion resistant DuPont Hypalon drag surface of the drag bag, and the re-configured pack. Note that the waistbelt can be removed, and the shoulder harness can be mounted to the bag so that the pack can be used as a conventional, non-scabbard pack.

The modular system lets you choose how much or how little of the system you need for your mission: The full set, just the Backscabbard, just the pack, or a drag bag.

The Phantom pack is a Gunslinger-sized pack in its main load bay, but offers a little more capacity because it is equipped with outboard hydration/radio pockets. It offers the ability to remove the bag and straps from the patented Backscabbardâ„¢, which can then be combined with the top-cover to make an excellent drag bag.

Going to Finland – to get a dog……!!

This picture is from the port of Vaasa, or more correct, just before we got to the port.


And this one is from the city center of Tampere. Thanks to Garmin 60 CSx and City Navigator we got out of there in no time too.
