Grey Ghost Gear has released the Gypsy- a new, low-profile, commuter-style pack described as the “big city cousin” to one of their previous, more popular packs (the Throwback).
“It’s a bag for the traveler or daily commuter who requires all the … features you have come to expect from us without any of the Hey, yo, we got a badass over here! look you get because of the rack upon rack of MOLLE/PALS,” Grey Ghost officials maintain.
The glat-topped pack has a waxed canvas exterior to give it a “casual but dignified urban look” and is built with a number of pockets, pouches and other features to provide organization and modularity.
Dimensions are described as: 19-inches tall, 16-inches wide, and 4.5-inches deep, providing a total volume of 1,368 cubic inches.
There is a lined, zippered pocket on either side of the top flap of the bag to protect eye pro or other sensitive items and the flap is secured by a pair of adjustable 1-inch side release buckles. Below the flap is a pocket that has a top cover secured with hook and loop material and two water resistant zippers that allows the pocket to be opened like a gate. On the front are two zippered mesh pockets sized to carry various small items and still further inside are stretch mesh pockets that vary in size to accommodate pens, flashlights, pistol mags or that extra battery for your laptop.
The padded back panel uses quilted, air-mesh material to improve comfort and circulation and the yoke-like pack straps are fully adjustable and feature a carrying handle.
The front of the pouch has a Hypalon patch with slots cut in it so you add a light or an extra pouch. Under the flap are two rows of PALS webbing with 7 channels each to allow you to expand the capacity of the pack by adding pouches to it. There is a zippered pouch just above the PALS webbing, 12-inches long and 8-inches deep. Grey Ghost officials advise this will carry a notebook, a blowout kit and night vision goggles. The main compartment is 17-inches tall, 4-inches deep and 15-inches wide, totaling 1,020 cubic inches. You can access this area with vertical zippers along each side of the back panel. Inside the back is a large hook-and-loop panel to affix holsters or modular pouches and a MacBook sized stretch mesh zippered pouch.
Finally, each side of the pack has a cleverly disguised water bottle pocket and has a cover flap that protects the vertical zipper that expands the pocket when lowered.
