The First Tactical TACTIX 0.5-Day backpack and the 36-inch Rifle Sleeve, manufactured by First Tactical, offer top military-grade quality at affordable prices and versatility for all shooters, hunters, and outdoorsmen
A relatively new entry on the global markets, the First Tactical, LLC company headquartered in Modesto (California, U.S.A.) has quickly established itself as a top-tier manufacturer of accessories, apparel, and other solutions for law enforcement, military, and first responders.
First Tactical has a unique way to work, with no product being designed and produced unless developed specifically to address the needs of first responders and other specialized personnel under direct feedback from the very same operators who would later use said products.
This way to see their business more like a mission led First Tactical to swiftly conquer a position of leadership on the market in terms of product quality, reliability and versatility.
The Tactix 0.5-Day backpack and the 36-inch Rifle Sleeve make no exception. Conceived originally for operational needs, they will also suit a vast majority of civilian gun owners, hunters, sport shooters and outdoor enthusiasts just as well – so to speak, as a range bag and a rifle bag for your trips to pew-pew-land!
First Tactical TACTIX 0.5-day backpack
A sturdy, half-day backpack available in black, coyote tan and olive drab green, the First Tactical TACTIX 0.5-day backpack offers long-lasting resistance to abuse and compact size thanks to the 500D/1000D water-resistant Nylon cordura construction and the use of Duraflex for the manufacture of its hardware, which makes it barely 1,74 kilograms (3.85 lbs) heavy.
The main feature of the TACTIX 0.5-day backpack is the Lynx™ Laser Cut Platform, a First Tactical patent compatible with MOLLE/PALS accessories.
A new take on the traditional web platform, the Lynx™ offers twice the mounting positions and tests 20% stronger than that of other tactical bags.
Two layers of 500D nylon fabric are laminated together for extra strength with a low profile, while a smart and strong laser cut slat system offers twice the usable loops to position additional gear.
The Company's own, ingenious Hook and Hang Thru™ System compartment are also a prime feature of the TACTIX 0.5-day backpack: unzipping top and bottom, it allows specialized items like the First Tactical rifle sleeves or other oversized tactical gear or hanging items to slide through and securely hook and hang in place.
