The Pentagon Quick Bag is a very simple bag, without the multitude of small compartments common in many backpacks, and is designed for quick and easy access to the contents. This makes it ideal for use out in the field, where you are carrying just the basics and do not need to pack loads of kit and accessories. Made with water-resistant and durable materials it is extremely well put together and practical.
The only features in the main compartment are a tablet pocket and an outlet for a hydration port, but very usefully this compartment is expandable by opening the perimeter zipper, more than doubling the depth of this part of the bag. On the front there is a shallow full depth pocket with a zippered opening, ideal for slim items like targets, licences and other documents. Below this is another smaller pocket which, like the main compartment, is expandable and is not divided up in any way internally. By opening up both of the expandable compartments the depth of this bag can be increased from 6cm to 22cm making it truly flexible and suitable for a range of uses.
The shoulder straps are removable, have quick release buckles and are fully adjustable. A small carry handle on the top of the bag is also provided. The padding on the straps is pretty minimal but that said, it is only a small bag and so is not going to be carrying a lot of weight. There are of course loads of attachment points for adding on additional items, but this would rather defeat the object of using a small and compact bag.
In use the bag is comfortable to carry and being so small you can forget you are wearing it, particularly as it does not hold a lot of stuff. It does not impede carrying or using a rifle and it does not move around in your back. With the bag being relatively small it does not stick out in any direction when it is on your back, so if you are moving through woodlands or any type of undergrowth it does not snag on anything. Quality is great, with YKK zippers and good stitching throughout, and this small bag is certainly made to the same standard as Pentagons bigger backpacks. Easy to take off, simple to access and instantly expandable, this is indeed a quick bag.
