Plan-B(TM) ’17 Go-Bag Thermo-Cap Sling by Hazard 4(R)
Being jammed in confined spaces for hours is an unfortunate part of the business for many professionals we serve. Whether it’s a military unit in a personnel carrier, a pilot in a cockpit, drivers in a HumVee, or a journalist in the back of a goat truck, they all have to bring their gear, and all may need to “relocate’ in a hurry. This is the environment for which our Evac line of sling-packs has been developed. Slim shaped, for fast maneuvering in crowds, they can bed in vehicles/lockers, and are quick to take on or off. They are also ambidextrous, and unlike others in this class, are actually comfortable to wear. The main padded strap is cocked at either the right or left lower corner, so the pad aligns ergonomically in the correct body-hugging direction. There is no slack, or gapping away from the body as is typical with similar single shoulder packs. The bag can be rotated to the chest for on-the-go access, and all pockets are designed to face the user in this mode on either the right or left side. This means the user can go from wearing the pack on his back, to driving a vehicle with it on his chest in just a few seconds. One-strap also makes shouldering a long-gun natural – unlike a regular backpack.

About HAZARD 4 Tactical Backpacks
The HAZARD 4 makes tactical packs and bags. When you are transferring your equipment, you want a backpack you can trust which will hold up to the environment, be comfortable to shoulder, and have adequate space to hold everything. Enter the tactical pack.
HAZARD 4 Backpack Sturdiness
Your tactical knapsack has to be long lasting so it will be able to make it through a long time. These materials can hold up under hard use and have a high yarn count weave material which makes the knapsack more resilient and abrasion resistant.
Tactical Pack Comfortability
If you are transporting a bag for a long time over long distances, your pack needs to be comfortable. Look for a tactical bag with characteristics like a padded waist strap to place the pack’s weight to your hips. This allows you to ideally carry the weight on your waist rather than carrying everything on your shoulders. This makes a substantial difference during a long distance like a rucksack march or while climbing. The majority of these backpacks even have air-cooling mesh back panels which aids in keeping you cool throughout hot trips. Internal frames are much better than external frames when it comes to tactical bag support. When picking your pack, look for this attribute.
Pack Capacity and Liter Size
The size of the Plan-B(TM) ’17 Go-Bag Thermo-Cap Sling by Hazard 4(R) determines how much it can carry. It is good to recognize how much equipment you want to carry when picking a pack. Backpack sizes are sized up in liters for the quantity of room they can hold things. A little day backpack around 20 to 30 liters will be okay if you only have a number of things to hold. If you have more things to pack in your tactical backpack or think of taking a multi-overnight trip, try a larger pack with +50 liters of space.
Tactical Backpacks for Airsoft Equipment
The Plan-B(TM) ’17 Go-Bag Thermo-Cap Sling by Hazard 4(R) can be used for airsoft and hiking. Airsoft equipment can be bulky if you keep your airsoft masks and goggles, additional airsoft BBs, green gas cylinders, and other equipment in the pack. An excellent tactical backpack similar to the Condor 3 Day Assault pack is an effective option for an airsoft pack.
