I’ve said it before. It hasn’t changed. I like my gear minimalist and simple. The Grey Ghost Gear TQ Hydration Pack fits that bill and then some.

Made from quality materials, it seems like every stitch and design feature was well thought out. It’s a good looking pack that can work as a daily gym/work bag without advertising to every scumbag that you’re probably carrying a gun. The pack is also well at home in the woods. It’s got a well thought out ventilation system to help keep you cooled off during the most strenuous trail run or hike.

All in all, it’s a damn good mid-sized backpack that’s worth its price. I can’t cover every feature here so check out the video for more information.
