Military Backpacks & Rucksacks
Having the gear and survival equipment that you need while you’re on deployment or on assignment is important to our law enforcement and military. The need to carry supplies such as additional mags, medical kits, and tactical flashlights has led to the creation of the tactical backpack. Tactical backpacks are suitable for long-distance hiking, law enforcement, military deployment, and other high-activity ventures.
When in search of a backpack many consumers get confused between a rucksack and a backpack. Some people use them interchangeably, but there is a difference in their features.
Backpack VS Rucksack
- A backpack is a bag that is worn on the back and has two shoulder straps. It has a hip belt which allows most of the weight of the load to be supported by the hips, not the shoulders.
- Technically a rucksack is a type of backpack, but it is designed to carry more gear than a regular backpack. Tactical backpacks have additional features such as MOLLE webbing, extra pockets and belts which allow you to carry heavier loads for longer periods of time.
