52 liter base pack

Tasmanian Tiger, a brand of tactical nylon load bearing equipment and products distributed by Proforce Equipment, Inc in the United States, is releasing a new large size “mission pack.” This new long-range mission backpack, called the TT Base Pack 52, has expansion options that take its internal volume from 52 liters all the way to 65 liters. The Tasmanian Tiger Base Pack 52 was also tailored to stand up to hard use and the elements, and the Base 52 includes a removable, height-adjustable lid with gear loops that features an easy-access pocket on top of the lid. When used without the lid, the backpack is closed with the rolled snow guard. The roll-top snow guard, without the lid, can be used in two locking positions.

The pack is built off Tasmanian Tiger’s V2 Plus Carrying System which is suitable for medium to heavy loads. It has a contact point that is high on the back panel of the pack, which allows for extra adjustability of the back length. This pack’s hip belt is also detachable and when removed will also function as a “war belt.” 

Tasmanian Tiger Base Pack 52 Long Range Mission Pack specifications:

  • Base volume of 52 liters, can be expanded to 65 liters
  • Made from Cordura 700 Denier Nylon
  • Available in Olive, Black, or Coyote Tan
  • 12 inches tall by 12.2 inches wide by 8.7 inches deep

Retail pricing for the Tasmanian Tiger Base Pack 52 Long Range Mission pack starts at $350 and ranges to $450. For more information on the TT Base Pack 52 or other gear from Tasmanian Tiger, please visit their website at
