Blue Force Gear Tracer Pack / Backpack; dapper pouch sold separately

Big Joe had a chance to get his greasy palms on the newest pack from Blue Force Gear.  It’s called the Tracer pack. Not to be confused by its little brother, the Jedburgh pack.  The Tracer is the newest bag in the DAP line of packs. It is fully compatible with the Dapper line of accessory pouches.

“Out of the box,” it comes as just the bag. The Dapper pouches are sold separately.

Says Joe:

I wanted to pick up the Jedburgh pack when it came out last year but life and other projects got in the way.  I really like the idea of having a fair share of options with the pack being all loop lined to accept the Dapper pouches or other hook and loop pouches from other companies.

Inside the Tracer Pack

From first glance, my favorite part of the bag is the two big pockets on the exterior of the tracer.  They are big enough to hold water bottles, sunglasses cases, and smaller items. They also have enough flex to them to hold other items that you may need for quick access.

The Tracer pack has great exterior pockets, image of pack inside Big Joe's vehicle.

Flexible pockets secure items of various sizes.

I do quite a bit of traveling and am on the go pretty often. I also do some work in Law Enforcement. With the number of choices on the market with accessory panels, the Tracer Pack is a pretty good do-it-all choice.  It could go from a quick weekend bag to riding shotgun in the patrol car with a quick change out of the dapper system.

About the Author

Big Joe Neuroth may look like a special live exhibit in the primate section of a traveling circus but he's actually a surprisingly erudite and articulate LEO of many year's service. A corn-fed Iowa native and former Border Patrol agent, Joseph's current job takes him all over the country and around the world in defense of Truth, Justice and the American Way. This has allowed him not just to deal with assorted malefactors from Nairobi to Panama, but also to have a wank on at least five continents. Joe enjoys training, teaching and catching bad guys almost as much as he likes bubble baths. He does not now nor has he ever spoken Japanese, but he does have a high regard for Akira Kurosawa and good sushi.
