February 13, 2017 2 min read

The 5.11 Tactical COVRT 18 Backpack is an 18 hour full sized pack that provides superior tactical utility while 'blending in' in any urban environment.

The 5.11 COVRT 18 Backpack is designed to have all the features you would expect in a tactical pack whilst keeping a low profile. For those looking to go from covert to overt instantly this packs has features allowing for a quick transition. A back up belt system compatible hidden pocket - that allows you to carry a gun holster, magazine pouches, and other gear compatible with the system in a hidden pouch - a concealed roll down compartment that can house a full size firearm and a flip down ID panel. If you're undercover and don't want a target on you back with an overly loaded MOLLE ridden pack then the 5.11 Tactical COVRT 18 Pack is ideal.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a pack to suit your schooling, or to be used as an office pack then the 5.11 COVRT 18 Backpack  - The organisational capabilities of the 5.11 COVRT 18 backpack are what you have come to expect from 5.11 Tactical - main compartment; laptop sleeve; two mesh zipper pouches in the main compartment; hydration bladder compartment; four additional zipper-enclosed exterior pockets; and more. Although the pack is hydration ready (are able to add a hydration bladder to the pack) the 5.11 COVRT 18 also features two water bottle holders (one on each side) offering quick and easy access.

Other features of the pack include a sunglass pocket - this is located at the top of pack and is fleece lined. It is designed so you don't have to carry a sunglass case with you and therefore only fits a pair of sunglasses. This feature doesn't sound like much however it is probably a pocket you will use more than any other. The padded laptop sleeve easily fits a Macbook Pro in the vertical position. The sleeve also offers a strap which keeps other smaller devices (tablets etc) in place - not really needed for the large laptops.
