    Bandit hydration pack

    Posted by Quinn on Jun 28th 2018

    Finally, a Goldilocks bag that meets my low speed high drag needs. Not too big, not too small, just right. Very well made of high quality materials, good stitching and a well thought out design. No nits to pick on this one, it's an excellent product at an excellent price. I've seen other, similar bags out there that cost substantially more that are of lesser quality.
    Oh, come on now, you know you want it, go ahead and click that order button. You've blown more money on burgers and beer. Get this bag, it's a good one.

    Bandit Hydration Backpack

    Posted by Héctor M. on Apr 21st 2018

    Nothing but good things to say! This pack is the perfect size and has plenty of space to carry additional items. The color looks good and the hydration bladder is pretty tough and doesn't leak. Way to go 3VGear for a great affordable product!

    Great Bag!

    Posted by Brian B. on Feb 25th 2018

    I actually won my bag on their give away last fall. When I opened the box and felt the bag and how it was made, I was impressed. My sons and I hunt, hike, ski and for the most part spend our year tearing up our gear. This pack has done extremely well to date and everyone wants one. I have other bags that cost from $80- $300, but let me tell you Brandon and his company are making quality gear. We will continue to buy bags from this company.
    Brandon thanks for making a quality bag.

    I bought this backpack primarily

    Posted by Mark S. on Jan 14th 2018

    I bought this backpack primarily for when I'm out riding my motorcycle, but it's become so convenient that I take it with me almost everywhere I go now. It's comfortable and seems pretty durable. You can store more than enough to get you through a day of hiking, riding, or urban exploring. There's a decent sized pouch up front to store a small med kit or a few water bottles (If you choose not to use the provided hydration bladder). The main compartment has enough room to throw a jacket and/or supplies. If you start to run out of space there is a very convenient zipper on the outside that allows you to expand the main compartment quite a bit. I absolutely love this backpack.

    Needed a durable, light & comfortable bag to hit the outdoors with. This fits the bill perfectly! Never hit the hiking trails without it!

    Adding to my earlier review "Still Have Not recieved the hydration bladder."

    Posted by Chris Z. on Jan 13th 2018

    Customer service made sure my bladder arrived. they were very attentive and helpful. I have had the pack out in the woods six additional days and it is definitely a great light day pack for hunting. It stands up to brush, the zippers are quiet and it is not too heavy. Good product backed up by good people.

    Posted by Brian B. on Dec 22nd 2017

    I bought the Bandit to keep in my Jeep. I wanted something durable and well thought out, but I didn’t want something super expensive in case it was stolen. The quality of the Bandit far exceeds the price tag. It’s perfect for hydration and few tools to get me home if need be WITHOUT enough room to overpack (which I’m guilty of doing). It’s pretty much tailor made for an “almost in-town” get home bag. Also perfect for a day hike. Overnighter if you’re a minimalist. Two thumbs up!

    First pack purchase from 3V

    Posted by Jamie P. on Dec 10th 2017

    I bought this pack to use as a day pack on my hiking adventures. I needed something tough because staying on the trail isn't always an option when trying to get the best shot for my YouTube channel Caveman Outdoors. My first hike was on a rainy day in the Hercules Glades Wilderness and the pack performed great. While not waterproof it did repel the water enough that the contents of the pack stayed dry. It was very comfortable, loaded to the hilt I barely knew I had it on. I would recommend this pack if your are looking for a high quality hydration and or day pack

    Great product. It's perfect if you just need a few items plus your water. I really like that it has the capability to expand if need be. When expanded I feel like I can get everything that I need for an entire day, but still in a small footprint.

    Bought this as a Christmas gift for my nephew who likes to mountain bike. After checking this thing out I actually had second thoughts about giving it to him and keeping it for myself. Best hydro pack I've ever seen. Going to get one for myself for kayaking in the spring.

I couldn't have happier, I can't wait to give this to my boyfriend for his birthday and I especially can't wait until him and I go hiking again and use it!

    Great day bag!

    Posted by Joel on Apr 9th 2017

    Had this bag for a 3 months now. It's high quality and there is a lot more space in that bag than you think and it's holding up just fine! I just wished I got black instead of coyote tan, it doesn't quite look the same. Definitely looking at the Posse EDC sling pack for my next purchase!

    Bandit Hyrdation Pack

    Posted by Rima M. on Mar 21st 2017

    This pack is awesome. Very compact and heavy duty construction. Very happy with my purchase. It is a little smaller than I thought it would be but not a problem. To give a perspective on how big the main compartment is, it holds my gym gear perfectly (T-Shirt, Shorts, socks, and a pair of 11.5 size shoes).

    This is my third 3VGear

    Posted by Omar M. on Mar 16th 2017

    This is my third 3VGear bag. Happy with all of them. Specifically with the Hydration pack, I like the expansion of the main compartment, only wish it used compression straps instead of a zipper. With zipper, it is either or. Have only used the Camelpaks before. Noticed the shoulder straps on Bandit tends to get in the way when inserting the bladder, whereas with Camelpaks, large zipper allows easier access. All in all, a well put together bag.

    Stilll have not recieved hydration bladder

    Posted by Erich H. on Jan 9th 2017

    I am ranking this pack 5 stars for build quality and design, but mine was shipped without the hydration bladder. The customer service people were very kind and apologetic and have promised a replacement but it has yet to arrive. In the meantime, I have used the pack on near-daily deer hunts and find it is a great size for packing extra items like a snack, shells, knife, etc. to a tree stand and holding a shedded layer or two. You won;t get a parka in it abut a fleece layer is not problem. I really look forward to the arrival of the bladder so I can ditch the canteen I have attached to the outside.

    Awesome product. Purchased the hydration backpack specifically for EDC Las Vegas and it became the best accessory not only for myself but for my entire group of friends. It kept all of us hydrated and healthy in the 110 degree desert. All of them will now be purchasing one and anyone else who asks I will point them to 3V. Awesome products at a very affordable price. Thanks again.

    We have been very happy with all our 3VGear purchases and the hydration pack does not disappoint. I was surprised by the amount of room the pack has for other items which will be very helpful on our off road motorcycle trips. Highly recommend these over other brands for durability and value.

    Using it for portable oxygen!

    Posted by CHAUNCEY C. on Mar 30th 2015

    I have been on oxygen therapy for almost a year now. I'm only 26. So I've been looking for a nice pack to use instead of the bag the hospital gave me. Well i found it! It's comfortable and lightweight. I forget that I even am wearing it. It has pockets to bring the oxygen related equipment I need on me at all times. I just really would like to thank 3V Gear. You gave me some of my dignity back honesty.

    Posted by Patrick R. on Mar 28th 2015

    This pack is exactly what I wanted for carrying a spare uniform and a few daily essentials to work. The size is great to throw over my shoulder without feeling burdened. My only critique would be that the pack needs some Velcro wraps for all the adjustment straps, to keep the ends under control.

The Bandit is all around awesome! I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a hydration pack that gives you all the desired features at a great price! I plan on using this pack for mountain biking! Can't wait to break it in!

    Posted by Cristina A. on Dec 17th 2014

    So far this pack is awesome for what I wanted it for. I would give it 5 stars, but I haven't had it long enough. The communication from the seller was great, as well as the delivery. I ruck with 7 bricks (approx 35 lbs) in this bag. I can fit 5 in the main compartment (extended) and 2 in the small compartment. I have worked out with it on several times over the last two weeks. The straps aren't wide and the chest strap can cause them to dig in a bit, HOWEVER, I am carrying a descent amt more weight than I feel is recommended so I think this issue comes from me. I just wanted anyone to know in case they bought it to carry rucking weight. I can't wait to use it on day hikes with my kids in the mountains. Good job 3V, good sturdy bag at an affordable price point. Would definitely recommend and buy more products if needed.

    Really comfortable back pack. It's

    Posted by Ron R. on Nov 20th 2014

    Really comfortable back pack. It's my EDC backpack. Two nice organization pockets in the front pocket (wish there were more on inside front zippered panel). Top zippered pocket fits my cell phone (but may not fit phones that are "plus" size). I like how there aren't any exterior cinching straps, but if you need extra space there is a zipper that can be undone to allow increased room in the main compartment. Also, 600 Denier fabric definitely feels very durable, without being overkill, like other bags that are "hard use". Finally, I am happy to see a company making a durable heavy duty back pack, that has two straps, with this cargo capacity. Previously I have only found packs in this capacity range, which are sling packs, and this is a style I don't prefer.
