Red Rock sling pack (first impressions)

Recommended Posts

I just got a Red Rock rover tactical sling pack, and am posting my initial impressions. First off, a link to what Im talking about so that you know what it is. http://www.dealsergeant.com/rover-tactical-sling-pack.html#

 

Construction: I am impressed by the construction. The pack is made from heavy duty nylon, the inside of the nylon has a rubber like coating which should make it quite water resistant (NOT water proof). The zippers all work smoothly and well. The strap is wide and seems well padded for the amount of weight you could fit in the pack. It looks like all of the pack is double stitched, which speaks well for its durability.

 

Design: I am also impressed by the design. In addition to the main strap across your chest, there is a second small strap that you can fasten under your other arm to help lock the pack in place if your going to be wearing it a while. The pack is padded where it will sit on your back, with a pouch between the padding and pack for concealed carry of a sidearm. The main compartment has 2 small dividers in it for organizing your stuff, and a small zippered flap pocket for small items you dont want to lose. The second largest compartment has another small divider, and 7 elastic loops for organizing your stuff, as well as a lanyard with a plastic clip on the end to hook to keys or something you deffinitely do not want to lose. The 3rd compartment has one small divider and 3 elastic loops for organization. And lastly there is a small document type pouch on the very outside of the pack.

 

This is not a large pack! However I am *very* impressed upon first inspection with both the design and construction of the pack. It appears to be very well made and very well thought out. There are lots of ways to organize your gear, and if you dont choose to use the organizers they take up almost no room in the pack. This would be an excellent day pack, or medic pack, or EDC. I would not want to try and carry enough stuff for overnight jaunts, but it might be doable if your a minimalist.

 

I want to repeat that these are first impressions. I have NOT used this pack yet. But for the $25 I paid for it, I think it was well worth the money. I was also very happy with the website, deal sergeant. I ordered it on a thursday, it was shipped the same day, and I recieved it 4 days later on monday. I used the cheapest USPS shipping they had.

 

Hope this review is helpful to someone. Ill post more after I have used it some.

 

-edit for spelling and to add- Forgot to add, the 2 largest compartments have grommet drain holes. There are also 4 plastic D rings for attaching stuff to the pack. There is also a -very- small pouch on the front of the strap, like a cell phone pouch. Its to small to fit a samsung charge smartphone, or an apple iphone 4. It would fit an ipod nano or small cell phone, or something similar.

Well I hope to pick up a cheap bicycle and bike to work this summer. And if Im to lazy, its going to be my ride my motorcycle to work bag. At least thats the plan, going to depend a little on how my knee does in the next month or so. I have a partially torn ACL, MCL, and a torn miniscus in my left knee right now.

 

So basically its my plan to be sort of an EDC bag for during the work week. Of course I need to get all of my EDC to put in it lol.

Yeah no joke! The doc is thinking I wont need surgery as long as I rehab well and take care of it and dont push it to hard till its healed. The MCL and miniscus should heal themselves (provided I dont agravate the injuries). And the ACL should very slowly get a little better... I guess it doesnt really heal the way the MCL will, but it should eventually get a little better. So basically I strengthen my legs and hope for the best.

 

I partially tore my right ACL when I was 21, and it has recovered well, never a problem with it. So Im just hopeing my left knee recovers as well as the right ;)

Schoeny I can relate hardcore. I ruptured my L5-S1 lumbar, herniated something in my leg, tore something in my knee, and tore something in my hip ( I think it was iliopsoas something ) and I know bouncing back can be a bastard. Take it easy, don't push yourself too hard.

looks good lots of pockets as far as water proof just use zip lock bags or other water proof

bags need to any way just for extra water containers if needed.

 

It appears to have two ports, grommets, in the bottom. Haven't checked if it will fit a camelbak.

 

The concealed carry pouch is nice. The only thing I would want to improve is the D ring construction. They are hard plastic. Aluminum would be more durable. This is a very well conceived bag. Male or Female EDC with concealed carry. The black will be a good choice if you are urban.

I have one. I've been using it for day hikes for about a year. You really can't put a camelbak bladder in it, unless you are willing to leave it unzipped. It is not very big but it fits a lot of stuff. I've had 2 water bottles, a small survival kit, and a collapsible bowl for the dog in mine besides having my 1911 in the conceal carry pocket. You could use it as a get home bag I think.

TheScrapp1..

Is your 1911 a full size??5inch

Enough room to carry 2 mags?

I carry a 2 quart canteen so not worried water storage.What color do you have ? Does it cause people to notice it!

Thanks..Matt

Its a full size 1911 and two mags should fit no problem. My bag is olive drab and hasn't attracted undue attention. I've only had friends comment that they like it and one tourist type kid freak when my gun was showing(which is perfectly legal where I was hiking in Montana and no one else had blinked all day). I had been fiddling with the gun which is wby it was even visible at all. The bag does a great job of holding and hiding it. Otherwise itdoesn't seem to attract attention.

I picked up its big brother since I really liked the design and quality for the price, but wasnt as happy with how small it was. Here is a link to the larger size: http://www.dealsergeant.com/product-categories/packs-bags/rambler-tactical-sling-pack.html

 

The rambler sling pack is basically the same as the rover when it comes to pocket layout and organization. The differences are, the water bottle pouch, the concealed carry pouch (zippered access), and the shoulder strap is fixed to go over your left shoulder. Which should only really affect left handed people who plan on possibly shooting with the bag on.

 

I really like the size much better on the rambler, very close to a standard school backpack in size, with way more organization than one of those. While I havent really used it roughly, Im happy with it so far.
