The F3F has a big barn-door front opening, a zip-around top opening which optimizes it for PRC-117 type radios, MOLLE/PALS compatible webbing up the sides, and two exterior front pockets. This is a great all-around 3-day pack, but we named it the FAC Track because it is the best-in-class pack for Forward Air Controllers.
- Upper back wall radio rack with 3 antenna portals.
- Padlock webbing tie-points all over the pack.
- "Shooters harness" with 3D mesh is vertically adjustable for varying torso lengths, and is both thinner for shooting, and more comfortable for heavier loads.
- Numerous small pockets and organizers -- so you can always go right to what you're looking for.
- Gossamer polycarbonate frame.
- Handles on 3 sides make it easy to pick the pack up, especially when retrieving it from your vehicle.
- Five hydration compatible pockets.
- Includes G1RC Rain Cover, stowed in a zippered pocket in the bottom of the pack.
F3F FAC Track Pack
Very solid pack.
I ordered this pack during my first deployment in 2008 and have used it on multiple deployments since. It is customizable (I dont always use 4 pouches with it), rugged, and sized to fit for any mission. I have used it in combat and there is zero wear and tear on the bag (which still surprises me) as well as when I transitioned to the Guard as my drill bag. Even 11 years on I still have people ask me where I got it and say that they would like to order one themselves.
I got this for my Brother in Law whose an RI and absolutely loves it. I personally have had one for 11 years and it's still rocking strong after I've been out. Great with an IOTV and a plate carrier it adjust alot better than anything the U.S. Army issues.
Okay, this is my final review because this is the third Eberlestock pack that I own. I will be buying the S27 Little Trick soon, I'm just waiting to pay off my Christmas debt. I bought this pack to use for my climbing gear. I am the Assistant Director of a Climbing program called Operation Climb on where we teach veterans how to rock climb in order to deal with PTS/PTSD.
Bottom line, Eberlestock makes the best tactical, hunting packs in the world. I use their gear for medical packs, climbing packs, hunting and camping, etc. Like I said, I have three right now, but I will be buying another soon. You can't go wrong buying their products.
