3V Gear Paratus 3-Day Backpack Reviews
Havent used it yet but seems to be a good pack. It holds everything I need for overnight gear while prospecting areas
Built and stitched tough, easy access and packing. Only somewhat troublesome problem is the large front Molle pouch keep coming unsnapped and falling off back even though I have nothing in it so it’s not the weight. Luckily I’ve noticed that it has fallen or a person has been nice enough to let me know but I’m fearful to pack it until I can solve the issue
I bought 2 and love them. Got 2 bug out bags now that I can rely on not to come apart when the going gets tough! Thanks for a quality product!
So I packed it, put it into a 5 ply plastic bag, then stored it in my car. Thankfully never had to use it because 1 year later, when I pulled it out of the plastic bag, 1 shoulder strap broke. See the photos. The damage you see on the straps is what happened when I scratched it with my fingernail. It just turns into dust.

I got this as a gift to replace my old camping bag that was falling apart, this bag has everything I put into my first bag and more. The customizability and ease of use makes it an excellent piece of equipment. It's turned into an everyday bag while still able to hold all my stuff for camping. This bag has been something I have been looking for for a long time. I am glad they built it!

Very well made, compact and versatile. Meets my needs well in how much it holds and the fact that you can add additional pouches is another feature I like. Very impressed with the design and quality of this bag.
Everything I expected, honestly, just search for an online review they're all excellent.
Fantastic pack. It’s been on construction jobs with me and proving to be tough.
This is my third bag from 3V and I am again very satisfied with it. Lots of space, and the MOLLE webbing + pouches are awesome for getting some extra organization in your pack. The materials all around feel tough and there’s a lot of reinforcement on the straps so I don’t expect it to fall apart. I would’ve liked to see a bit more organizational paneling in the front pouch and perhaps some attachment points on the bottom of the pack. Another pain point I might mention, getting pouches back onto the pack with the included molle straps can be somewhat difficult, but 3V offers quick clips that I’ve heard good things about. I’d opt for those. Also, the hip level straps are not really load bearing, just kinda stabilizing, so carrying a lot of weight can be unpleasant after a while. All around a solid pack for intermediate hiking, but I might opt for a rigid backpacking bag with load adjustment straps for anything more serious.
