The Exos Gear Bravo Series packs are really nice backpacks with law enforcement, personal, recreational, or even a go-bag applications. Exos Gear has already produced useful hiking and personal packs. Made from highly durable 600 Denier Polyester, and having a Molle attachment system on the outside cover, the Bravo Series packs offer a compact backpack with great potential without being too burdensome.
The PALS webbing provides Molle attachment possibilities for significant modularity. The user gets to decide what and where to add additional pouches, carriers, or other desired or helpful items. The size of the Bravo Series packs are just about perfect for an emergency go-bag, and could easily store 3-5 days worth of supplies.
Exos Gear Bravo Series Packs
The Exos Gear Bravo Series packs are definitely aimed at military and law enforcement users, however the features could be beneficial to a larger group of customers. PALS webbing on the exterior of the packs is spaced 1.0″ by 1.0″, and provides easy Molle attachment of additional pouches. This modularity allows the user to build the pack to fit their individual needs, and not try to work through a permanent set-up that may or may not be beneficial. There are two 3″ x 2″ velcro pads on each side to allow the user to attach patches of their choosing.
The Bravo Series packs come with two main compartments, and two smaller outer compartments. The packs have a total carrying capacity of 34L or 2073 cu in (measured in accordance with ASTM F2153). Made of 600 Denier Polyester, Exos includes extra material at load bearing connections and strap attachments. The Bravo Series packs come in four colors: Black, Coyote Tan, Olive Drab, and Gray.
There is a top grab handle that is double stitched for extra durability when carrying heavier loads. Shoulder straps are also double stitched, and are padded for comfort. The rear of the pack contains a hydration bladder pouch. At the top rear of the pack there is a zippered and velcro hydration port for drinking tubes, There is a chest strap that buckles together to provide confident hands-free carry. Bravo Series packs come with heavy-duty zippers, and utility-style cord pulls providing excellent securing ability, and easier access to compartments.
The back of the Bravo Series packs is designed with ventilated mesh to allow more air flow, so the pack does not cause excessive heat and sweat on the user. Buckles and anchors are made from durable polymer to keep things light weight, but still provide a sturdy attachment. In addition, the securing straps have retention loop attached the Molle system so the straps do not hang free and get in the way.

I am a big supporter of compact packs with the capacity of holding about 3-days worth of supplies. The pack is large enough to carry vital items like extra ammunition or loaded magazines, a tourniquet and pressure bandage, water bottles, rain gear, and energy bars. At the same time the pack is not so big that it is cumbersome and hard to store.
In law enforcement it is a good idea to have a “go-bag” ready for mass casualty incidents, active shooter situations, or serious trauma situations. The Exos Gear Bravo series packs appear to meet professional durability standards and needs, and could be a great option at an incredibly affordable price.
