Nitecore NTC10, NEB10 and NEB20: the unexpected tactical bags
The new Nitecore NTC10 Tactical Bag and the NEB10 and NEB20 Excursion Bags represent a practical solution for gear storage, short trips or every-day carry of firearms, ammunition, accessories, electronics, and other pieces of sensitive gear
Our readers will most likely be familiar by now with the Nitecore brand – a company headquartered in China that manufactures and distributes some of the most powerful tactical, utility and search lights currently available on the global commercial markets.
But the Nitecore product line is not limited to flashlights: the company also offers an extensive catalogue of accessories that is updated and upgraded yearly following the ever-changing requests of the modern market.
And among the newest entries in Nitecore's accessories – indeed some of the Company's main new products for 2017 – are the Nitecore NTC10 Tactical Bag, the Nitecore NEB10 and Nitecore NEB20 Excursion Bags.
Nitecore NTC10 Tactical Bag
The Nitecore NTC10 is a 315mm x 175mm x 80mm (12.4" x 6.89" x 3.15") tactical case, weighing barely 516 grams (18.2oz) when empty. Manufactured entirely out of sturdy black, 1050D Nylon Cordura fabric, the NTC10 boasts a high-strength coated surface for abrasion, water and fouling resistance, as well as a reinforced hand-held grip and two D-Rings on the main zipper for fully ambidextrous operation.
The outer surface of this nifty bag comes equipped with a loop surface on one side and with a laser-cut, MOLLE synthetic rubber (Hypalon) interface on the other, allowing the quick attachment of either proprietary or third-party extensions to boost the cargo capabilities of the NTC10.
The main compartment of the Nitecore NTC10 tactical bag features a deep, zippered pocket for quick and easy access to sensitive content, as well as a detachable center divider with two loop surfaces to accommodate hook-and-loop organizers for tactical flashlights, batteries and battery chargers; laptops, handheld devices and related accessories; firearms, ammunition, magazines, accessories and cleaning kit; electronics; and much more.
A loop surface is also located at the bottom of the main compartment of the Nitecore NTC10 tactical bag, to fit hook-and-loop organizers sold separately.
Nitecore NEB10 and NEB20 Excursion Bags
Manufactured using the same materials and boasting the same quality levels as the NTC10 Tactical Bag, the Nitecore NEB10 and the Nitecore NEB20 are sturdy excursion bags ready to carry documents, electronics, laptops, working tools and the like. Frequent flyers will also love their small size and light weight.
Offering a 366 cu.in/6 liter volume and a 40x20x7cm (15.7"x7.9"x2.8") main compartment, these NItecore bags are ample enough to dub as a small range bags for shooters – particularly for beginners or those who bring just one gun at the time to the range.
The only real difference between the two models is in the MOLLE system we have on the front pockets: a velveteen one on the NEB20, an Hypalon one on the NEB10.
With a weight just around 550 grams, the Nitecore NEB10 and NEB20 Excursion Bags also offer a rear mesh pocket for documents, mobile phones, tools, maps, and other contents that should be readily accessible for the task at hand.
The main compartment also features a loop surface for the attachment of hook-and-loop extensions to organize its contents. The frontal 16x16x2cm (6.3"x6.3"x0.8") compartment is zippered and offers a double D-Ring for quick access.
The bags come issued with an adjustable and removable padded shoulder strap and a 3-point harness system that evenly distributes weight across the body to keep the bag securely positioned while moving, maximizing comfort over time and reducing the risk of injuries.
The 3-point harness system makes the bags perfect for hiking on uneven terrain, for traveling in a motorbike, and prevents loss by purse-snatching.
The completely customizable interior of the Nitecore tactical and excursion bags lets you take control of how your gear is organized and stored, to arrange your gear in a way that makes sense for your unique set-up, and to add or remove components quickly and easily.
The Nitecore NTC10, NEB10 and NEB20 bags are sold at suggested retail prices ranging from $40 to $60. For more information about price and avalability we suggest you to check both the official Nitecore online store or amazon.com.
