Originally designed for a Marine Sniper Platoon the Combat XII Pack offers a lightweight, viable solution for short ranged patrol operations. Constructed of 1000D Cordura fabric no compromise was made on strength and durability yet the Combat XII Pack weighs it at only 25.9 ounces! The Combat XII Pack is capable of holding six 5.56 magazines or four of the 7.62x59 SASS Mags. There are two general purpose pouches on the rear of the pack that are "buddy" accessible from either side while the pack is worn. The main compartment is designed to hold several field striped MREs and either two 100 oz hydration bladders or 1 bladder and a 117 Gulf. For lightweight loads (25 lb. and under) The Combat XII features a unique direct to body armor wear system that allows the wearer's arms full range of motion .This system enhances the users ability to more naturally move through a combat environment. Included for heavier loads, the Combat XII comes with shoulder straps that can be worn normally. Molle has been added to the sides and rear of the pack to allow the user to add or remove pouches based upon the current mission profile.
This system is perfect for short-range, foot mobile R&S style missions where keeping the weight down and mobility high is essential. This pack is also very useful for Point Men or those in leadership positions such as Platoon Commanders, Squad Leaders or Team Leaders that must constantly be moving from position to position throughout the duration of an operation.
There is a saying that goes around in the Marines regarding packs "The more room you have in your pack, the more stuff you can find to put in it." This pack has more than enough room to take what you need and leave behind the nonsense you don't to the POG's.

Combat XII Pack

Great pack for attaching to a plate carrier. Its as easy as it looks in the video. Excellent material, quality build and perfect size. Great way to carry essentials without cluttering up your PC. I only wish the shoulder straps came with padding as mine are riding between the PC shoulder straps and my neck. Highly recommended. Semper Fi.
