The H31 Bandit is a great little every-day-carry pack. Its laser-cut MOLLE panel allows you to rack on accessories and provides a place to quickly lash on bulky items outside of the main bag.
Open the front-loading zipper and you'll be surprised at just how much room there is in such a small pack. Compatible with either the 2L or 3L Source Hydration Bladder. Open the top zipper compartment, and inside you will find a key hook, mesh storage pocket, and a third magazine type pocket.

How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
BLUF: I purchased this bag as an assault/ E&E pack in multicam to wear in conjunction with my Crye JPC 2.0 and Crye low profile belt. It is fulfilling that role extremely well. I am a stalky 5'10'' weighing 195lbs.
Build quality: the stitching and materials are outstanding and give me confidence in its ruggedness
The shoulder straps are very thin and interfere minimally with shouldering a rifle
The waist strap straps around me to provide added stability without interfering with the rest of my gear
The slim, long design of the bag is great for stashing some Gore-Tex or a poncho, a field stripped MRE, hydration, and other survival/assault gear
The internal pockets easily fit some extra pistol and rifle magazines, ammunition and other gear
The Molle: both the 10mm in various spots on the pack and the front panel are useful for additional pouches if you need to do that
The lid is nicely sized with spots for a pistol magazine, wallet, keys, passport, and other "admin" items
The padding on the back of the pack is a great thickness and helps carries weight well if you are carrying things like ammo, food, and water.
The main compartment lid that opens up all the way makes accessing gear extremely easy to access and is a huge plus
There is only one thing I wish was different about the pack is that it was lighter. I know that you can't have it all and the pack is light for how rugged it is but there is always room for improvement. I would get rid of the adjustable shoulder yolk height feature and just sew it in place to save a few ounces.
Bonus round: This pack is extremely easy to lash to a larger bag for quick access due to its low profile design. I lash it to my V90Battleship when I am camping or LARPing in preparation for the boogaloo.
Excellent product, I have 2 of them.!
Canadian, deployed overseas. Use this bag daily to and from “work” it’s small but surprisingly roomy.
Looks small, but this pack pulls its weight. Great volume for a small pack, and it carries weight very well. The top pockets are perfect for small items like your phone, keys, wallet, license etc. The zippers on this pack are bulletproof. This has become my go to day pack for hiking and day hunts.
Outstanding quality and customer service! Using it for day hikes. Totally recommend this product for anyone needing a quality product at a perfect price point.
