ProductAdvisor’s The Best Concealed Carry Backpack: Reviews and Buyer’s Guide

ProductAdvisor recently named TRU-SPEC‘s Trek Sling Pack one of the best concealed carry backpacks! Check out their review below:

A sling-style pack for those who prefer a single strap

The Trek Sling Pack by TRU-SPEC is different than our top pick in that is a different style (a single-strap bag worn diagonally across the body), and it is also quite a bit smaller in volume. These differences can make it more effective for someone who doesn’t carry as much, but it can also have a few drawbacks. We’ll explain the differences so you can figure out if it’s right for you.

 

TRU-SPEC is a brand that produces quite a bit of tactical gear, and for that they’re well-loved in the firearm, survival, and outdoors communities. Heavy, reinforced nylon is the material that makes up most of the Trek Sling Pack, and its durability is further shown in the thickness of their strap and the massive size of their zippers.

This backpack features three options to carry a concealed weapon: a side-zip pocket, a front compartment and a rear compartment that would normally be against your back. Just like the Covrt18, the side-zip pocket allows for the fastest firearm access, requiring just a quick rotation of the bag to reach. There are also dedicated magazine pockets throughout the bag so that you’re always prepared, and never have mags bouncing around inside the main storage area.

The fact that this is a smaller bag can be great if you generally travel light; however, if you have a heftier load day-to-day, this bag may present some challenges in getting everything inside alongside your firearm. In addition, since it’s a sling-style pack with only one cross-body strap, it can take a little getting used to if you’ve never worn one before. Single-strap bags don’t distribute load evenly like traditional double-strap backpacks, so that’s something to keep in mind if you’ve got any back issues.

Other than the minor style limitations discussed above, the TRU-SPEC Trek Sling Pack is a great, compact alternative to our top pick (and also about half the price). It’s got dedicated space for your firearms and mags, and still holds the subtle appearance that most concealed carriers are after.
