While a solid tactical backpack can be a pretty good platform on which to build out an emergency or survival bag, few of them are well-equipped out of the gate. If you want something that’s durable, versatile, and equipped with top-tier organization from the start, however, you’re in luck – because 5.11 Tactical just released the perfect pack.

Called the Operator ALS Backpack, this bag might just be the ultimate pack for the chronically well-organized tactician. Part of the reason is its tough-as-nails water-resistant construction of 1050D nylon with a two-sided waterproof TPU-coated base. Another is its versatile exterior complete with dual Velcro detachable quick-access pouches, MOLLE-ready webbing, and durable easy-grab aluminum handle. But a bit part of the credit has to be given to its unique color-coded complement of Easy-vis Med Pouches with their clear vinyl windows and pull tabs and the large clamshell-opening main compartment in which they are found. Whether you’re just looking for the ultimate organizational bug-out bag or you need a comprehensively coordinated field medical pack, the $220 5.11 Tactical Operator ALS Backpack is the right choice.

Purchase: $220
