Wilson Combat doesn’t put the company name on a product unless it knows how good it is, so it was a no-brainer when backpack maker Vanquest came along with the Falconer-27.

The Falconer-27 backpack is loaded with key features from Vanquest’s most popular and field-proven bags and pouches: backpack’s fillet-open main compartment, space-saving webbing, and elastic cord ladders, all packed inside the three-layer backpack.
The backpack features 27-liters of space with 28 pockets/slots to securely stow your EDC, outdoor, school, work, and get-home essentials.
The Falconer’s fillet-open 18.0″ (H) x 10.5″ (W) x 4.75″ (D) main compartment features loop-field lining on all walls, giving users unlimited setup possibilities. Vertical PALS webbing on rear wall with a 12.5” (H) x 10” (W) slip pocket sits opposite. The main compartment comes with locking #10 YKK zippers and ITW’s oversized rubber zipper-pulls, which offers excellent snag-resistant grip.
The 17.0″ (H) x 9.5″ (W) x 2.5″ (D) middle compartment also fillet-opens. One side has two Velcro-secured clear window pockets, and a small loop field on the opposite side with a ripstop short pocket, which doubles as a tool handle garage. This middle-layer also has a hidden ability to carry an over-sized item secured by the side compression straps, and seven anchor points around the backpack.
Two front pockets deliver space-saving organizers. The top-front pocket offers dual slip pockets and elastic webbing to secure loose items, while the lower-front pocket comes with built-in features, offering the ultimate organization for medical, tool, or personal kit for any load-out. The lower pocket also comes with a fold-in FASTab, allowing you to access all of your vital gear with an instinctive downward pull.

Ergonomic features such as a removable waist belt with a padded lumbar support, and two shoulder straps with load-lifters plus a sternum strap provide excellent comfort. Rear hydration/CCW pocket has a hose pass-through exiting from the top. Subtle MOLLE attachment webbing is located on the side and bottom giving the option of modular expansion while keeping a covert look to the Falconer-27.
The Falconer-27 Backpack is available in black or gray for a retail price of $186.95.
