    UPDATED YKK Annex Clips
    We have replaced the traditional velcro MOLLE straps with YKK Annex Clips. These clips make it incredibly easy to remove your MOLLE pouches or adjust their position on the bag.
    UPDATED Hydration System
    We have made the opening of the hydration port a little larger to make it easier to run the mouthpiece of your reservoir out of the bag. Plus, we added a new velcro strap to the inside of the bag to hold your reservoir upright.
    UPDATED Admin Panel
    A new admin panel allows you to better organize your gear. Now you will know exactly where everything is without hunting through the large pockets.
    UPDATED Increased Strength
    We have added an additional piece of 2" nylon webbing to increase the strength of the grab handle. We have also added box stitching and bar tacking to ensure the handle is incredibly robust.
    UPDATED Robust Shoulder Strap
    We have added more material to our shoulder straps and added heavy duty bar tack stitching to make sure these shoulder straps hold up to any load.
    UPDATED Elastic Strap Keepers
    There is nothing worse than having your straps dangling all over the place. No more! With the updated Paratus, all nylon straps have elastic webbing to help manage the excess straps.
    Tons of Organization
    With numerous pockets and sleeves, there is plenty of room to organize your gear.
    Modular Design
    Using a MOLLE system, the accessory pouches can be removed and additional pouches added. 
    Padded Laptop Sleeve
    A padded laptop sleeve fits most 15" laptops and tablets. Also, doubles as hydration reservoir pocket.
    EVA Molded Back Panel
    The Paratus comes with an EVA molded back panel which allows for additional airflow and keeps you cool.
    MOLLE Attachments
    The multiple MOLLE attachment points let you customize the backpack to suit your needs.
    Rapid Deployment Pack
    The Paratus includes the Rapid Deployment Pack. This small pouch is perfect for when you need to leave the main pack and only carry the essentials.

    3 Day Operators Pack

    Love them. Bought 2, 1 for me and 1 for my daughter. Packing them up and sitting by my bed in case we have to GTFO of town and head to the mountains. Lol Absolutely an excellent choice for anyone wanting a comfortable, rugged, spacious pack that has plenty of add-on capabilities. Will come back and buy more from 3V Gear. Semper Fi

    Better than I hoped for.

    The bag feels extremely high quality. Looks cool too. Lots of storage slots of all sizes. Even subtle details like having the fabric or clips sit over the zipper for added protection and security, was implemented. (FYI just fold it up to access the zipper) I can definitely see how one could fit in enough supplies to get through 3 days. Well done, I've very satisfied with my purchase.

    Superb Bug-out Pack

    Excellent design, construction, and value! Can’t believe this thing is priced so low. It has tons of compartments, lots of different ways to customize, and it’s very comfortable to wear around. Love this pack.

    Great quality, comfortable fit.

    Just received my paratus 3-day operator's backpack. The construction is very durable and it's comfortable. The only thing I would change is extending the zippers on the 2 main compartments so they open more. Can't wait to put it to use.

    Great bug out bag

    We’ll designed, Nice size ideal for men or women. No temptation to overload with lots of outside pouches for easy access. Love the bug out bag list also. Steve in Australia
