Welcome back to another weekly article here on the EDC Blog, everyone! A lot of people have been looking into our backpacks as of late. And one of the common things we're getting asked is, which pack is the right one for me? The new Battalion 12 Hour Bag, or the Chief?
While they certainly have their differences, they do share some commonality too. I'll do my best to break these things down below and hopefully help you decide which one to buy. And hey, if you still don't know what you want - Just buy both. We won't judge you ;)
The "Battalion 12 Hour Bag":
The Battalion 12 Hour Bag is certainly the better choice for people who are looking for a quick commute/day pack. While the Chief is better suited for people who are looking to stay out for awhile longer, or potentially use the bag for an overnight. Below is a good side-by-side size comparison.
Both packs offer a lot of incredible design features, use high quality parts/components and several other things. Here are a few common strengths of both backpacks:
Again, the "Chief" is the larger of the two packs. It's more suited for people who carry a lot of gear, possibly a 15" Laptop or want to carry it on longer trips.
The Battalion 12 Hour Pack is again smaller than the Chief. Making it better suited for a quick grab & go, everyday carry backpack. Here are some quick differences that are specific to the Battalion bag:
