Mission First Tactical has just launched the new ACHRO 22L EDC backpack. The name of this new every day carry backpack is inspired by the word “achromatic, meaning something without color. The name is a reference to idea of being a “gray man,” who is discreet and does not attract any needless attention to themselves. As a result, this bag is designed to hold everything needed to go about the day and includes dedicated storage compartments for things like a flexed-lied pocket for sunglasses as well as places to store a laptop, tablet and 32 ounce water bottles. There is also an ambidextrous quick access EDC pistol compartment with its own hook and loop system that will cradle a holstered firearm that uses standard 1.5 inch wide belt clips.

Although built around a 22 liter capacity, externally the new Mission First Tactical ACHRO backpack is square and compact and can easily be stowed underneath the seat of a car, plane or bus, which makes it convenient for commuting. Its outer shell is built with durable 1000 denier nylon kodra carbonate and is weather and abrasion resistant for long term durability and to protect the goods stored inside the bag.

  • Smart storage for vast array of EDC organizational options
