Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a bag and a backpack?

The main difference between a duffle bag and a backpack is the way in which you carry it. A duffle bag is mainly designed as a hand carry, while you usually carry your backpack on your back. Even though you can probably alternate between the two, this remains the biggest distinction. Also, a Mil-Spec made-in-USA backpack for sale will probably have more compartments, granting it enhanced versatility and practicality.

What are the three considerations for backpacks?

The three main considerations when choosing a made-in-USA backpack to purchase are:

  • Size
  • Capacity
  • Use
You need to purchase a backpack that’s the right size for you, the right capacity for everything you plan on carrying in it, and suitable for your intended application.

What size backpack do I need?

This is entirely individual and solely depends on your preferences and requirements. If you’re going for a daily carry, a 12-hour backpack is probably perfect. However, if you’re looking for a Mil-Spec backpack for sale to take on longer trips, anything below 24 liters is too small.

What should I look for in a 12-hour backpack?

Some of the most important characteristics you should look for when purchasing a made-in-USA backpack are:

  • Material it’s made from
  • Type of hardware it uses
  • Suitable volume
  • Low weight
  • Multiple compartments and pockets
  • High-quality zippers
  • Enhanced accessibility
  • Hydration port
