As many of you may know, I’ve been writing for The Loadout Room for over 2 years now and would like to introduce someone new. My wife Brandie, has been my steadfast partner for over 20 years now. She’s the Mother of my 2 sons and is always up for whatever crazy adventure we conjure up. And I’m sure many of our readers have similar relationships with their better halves as well. With several manufacturers now catering more specifically to women, what better opinion to have on these items than a womans. 5.11 Tactical is one such company pioneering this avenue and the MIRA 2-in-1 Pack is their new women specific backpack. Below is her review:

Mission Ready 5.11 MIRA 2-in-1 Pack: Review

I’m pretty methodical whenever I embark on a mission. In addition to being a clear Type-A personality, I’m the mom of two very active teen-aged boys & wife to a former Army Ranger. I’ve got to be ready for damn-near any adventure, along with all of the possible gear/accessories/supplies/snacks that goes along with it; Sherpa comes to mind. The MIRA 2-in-1 Pack by 5.11 Tactical proved to be Mission-ready for me, literally.

5.11 Tactical is globally known & respected for durable, high-quality gear tailored to serve the law enforcement and public safety communities. Expanding on these stalwarts, 5.11 is broadening it’s offerings to consider the unique needs & challenges of conceal carry, including women-focused solutions like backpacks, handbags & purses. The MIRA 2-in-1 Pack managed the burden of my loadout on a recent Mission Trip to Honduras. While conceal-carry may have been a good option considering travel to this locale is discouraged by the State Department, mine was a mission of peace & seeking personal spiritual growth under the tutelage of a Lay Dominican in action.
