The New D3 Flatpack Plus from Haley Strategic

flatpack plus

Haley Strategic announced a new backpack called the D3 Flatpack Plus. According to the company, this is a hybrid bag that is intended to bridge “the gap between a smaller assaulter pack and a full sized day pack.”

The bag has more than 850 cubic inches of storage when fully loaded. (Note: the video on the pack states that the pack has about 1,400 cubic inches of space.) However, the bag can be compressed down to a nearly flat profile when the additional storage space is not needed. The bag can be pulled fully open to access all of the interior at the same time. The interior is fully lined with loop side Velcro panels. This allows you to customize the interior storage with accessory pouches and other gear.

Haley Strategic states the bag was designed with the special operations team member in mind. However, the company is quick to point out that the bag is also well suited for regular citizens that need a quality EDC pack. The interior pockets can store a 1 L hydration bladder and up to a 15″ laptop or tablet. The packs should work well with the company’s new(ish) chest rigs.

Currently, Haley Strategic is accepting pre-orders for the D3 Flatpack Plus. The company anticipates shipping the new packs on April 6, 2017. The pre-sale price is $165.00.

    I hate to be “that guy,” but this bag has been out for a while. I bought one almost two years ago.

      That’s the original flatpack. This is the plus.

        Didn’t see that, my mistake.

    it’s slightly less than 14 liters, pathetic.

    If I need to take a snack bar and a bottle of water I’ll consider it, but not as a day pack.

    • Hem90

      I thought it expanded to 1400cu?

      • iksnilol

        So it goes from nanosized to microscopical?

        30-35 liters is the ideal for me.

        • Hem90

          I mean, it’s not terribly smaller than an issued “assault pack” but in its intended role that lost space is gained back from placards/chest rigs/PCs/etc.

          Maybe it doesn’t meet your mission requirements and that’s okay, but I can definitely see where people could get some use out of it. Tbh, the smaller ones fits my role better.

            I like a larger pack (30-35 liters) and then pack it with less, distributes the weight better than a small pack packed to the brim.
