At Shot Show last year we had a sneak peek at the Project F backpack. It was love at first sight. We waited and waited and finally in July the product was released with several revisions prior to the final production.

Specs in context

Bags have gone from a simple large pocket device, down to very niche specific highly compartmentalized designs for singular purposes. One of the things I love about Vanquest is the fact that they design bags for many types of users instead of for specific niches. This is evident as we start to go through the compartments and the various way they can be used.

Hydration Storage

Hydration packs have become a go-to item for many backpack users. However, they are underutilized by EDC users in many cases. Leaving an empty or wasted pocket. Vanquest has created an EDC friendly deep concealment pouch that works as a hydration pack. The result is your urban EDC user has a deep concealment pack, and the wilderness hiker has access to hydration with no wasted space.
