Let’s be honest, there’s a ton of tactical packs and bags out there in the marketplace. But Kinetic Development Group (KDG) has come out with one that caught our attention for a couple of different reasons. First, the KDG Apparition Pack has the ability to carry a lot of lifesaving gear and a 10.5 inch or shorter SBR, 16-inch carbines with a Law Folding adapter, or a standard AR-15 carbine broken down. Second, and perhaps most importantly, is the look. This pack sports a two tone black and bright red appearance. It’s a nice, clean look that’ll enable you to blend in anywhere.

According to the product page, the KDG Apparition Pack comes with two water bottle-sized pockets on either side. Above them, near the top, are cinch straps for things like tripods and walking sticks. Beside the water bottle pockets are two zippered compartments for storing a cell phone, wallet, first aid kid, compact pistol and the like. The bottom of the bag features a storable rain fly for protection in the event of a sudden downpour.

This nylon pack also features a pleated, coffin-shaped front pocket with a vertical zipper. It’s designed for items that you need right away, such as a tablet, books, passports and more. The next pocket sports full length zippers with double pull tabs, and is lined with loop to allow customization with various hook backed pouches or holsters. It can also carry an additional short upper for your carbine.

As we mentioned above, the main compartment of the KDG Apparition Pack gives you plenty of room for your carbine or SBR. On the back of the zippered flap, there are two pockets with bungee keepers sized for 5.56mm magazines. The back panel of the main compartment includes a full length field of loop to use the included hook securing straps.

In addition, there’s an added extension compartment on the bottom of the pack. This increases the length of the main compartment and lets you put a longer barrel weapon, like a full side SCAR or suppressor equipped SBR, into the bag while maintaining concealment.

Meanwhile, the bag features a padded waist belt and pack straps. The pack straps have load lifters and are adjustable for most torso lengths. You also have the option of storing things like snacks or spare mags in your waist belt via the included pockets.


Overall Capacity: 1200 Cubic Inches (Approximately)
Normal Length: 27″
Length with Extended Bottom: 33″
