The TacSource team is obsessed with their new laptop/document bags! We all had originally used the 5.11 RUSH Deliver Lima - which is an awesome bag in itself - however recently switched to the Tasmanian Tiger Document Bag (should really be called a Laptop/Document Bag and we'll tell you why).
Firstly, we'll talk about the specification of the bag. Empty the bag weights only 1.1kg, with a capacity of 21L and measuring 41cm x 30cm x 17cm. The fabric used is 700 denier Cordura making it stain and water resistant, easy to clean and durable. Zippers are durable YKK. A detachable padded shoulder strap and MOLLE on the front and sides of the bag.
The Tasmanian Tiger Document Bag features four pocket. The first front pocket is a standard pocket behind the four rows of MOLLE webbing. This is the only pocket in the bag that isn't padded. Behind that you have a padded admin pocket which has excellent organisational capabilities. This front and back of this pocket is padded. Then you have the first of the two main compartments. The first main compartment, again is padded, features a standard pocket and sleeve for separating items. The sleeve has a webbing snap lock to secure items in place. The second main compartment is what we would refer to as the laptop compartment. It features thick padding on the front and back and also on the middle divider. This is great is you carry around a work and personal laptop.
The bag arrives pretty compressed however, once you start organising the bag you don't realise how much you can actually fit into it. In one Tasmanian Tiger Document Bag we have the following items with room for quite a few more!
Besides the amount of padding, we also love what Tasmanian Tiger have done with the strap. A piece of webbing and snap lock hold the strap in place which stop snags. It may seem minor however we found this great while travelling interstate. When you are required to store your bags on the overhead compartments, or under your seat, this minor detail is great for keeping the strap in place and avoiding snags.
All in all we have found this to be an awesome bag which really protects your valuables with the amount of padding provided. Minor detail, the amount you can fit into the bag, organisation, durability and design and feel have made this a favourite.
