A lot of the “grey man” gear I see online I feel goes out of its way to be exactly the opposite. A lot of times you will find a backpack that is meant to be discreet but ends up having the entire outside of it covered in MOLLE and will inevitably have a giant punisher skull on it somewhere. Not the Stealth 20L. A few months ago I had the opportunity to test out the yet-to-be-released Grey Man Tactical Stealth 20L and I was quite impressed with the simplicity of the setup as well as the features offered when combined with Grey Man Tactical’s RMP series.

Where I think this backpack really shined for me is in its overall design – it looks and acts more or less like a laptop backpack. In fact, it functions like one should. The primary padded compartment which is inbetween the two outer compartments on the front and back is large enough to fit a 15″ screen laptop and the front compartment also features two separate zippered compartments for stowing cables or other small objects. The straps and waist buckle were also very comfortable and I ended up taking the whole rig including two of Grey Man’s rigid MOLLE panels with me on an overnight hike and it worked out great.
The GMT Stealth 20L features YKK zippers which I had zero issues with despite overloading the backpack beyond its designed dimensions with gear for my hike. I also was able to take the Stealth 20L on a couple of flights and kept a few of my RMP items inside of the bag to keep it nice and square which allowed me to fit it neatly underneath a standard coach class seat during my flights. I was able to fit about 3 days worth of clothes in there as well as my first aid kit and I repurposed my Scorpion pistol mag holsters to fit my charging cables so they wouldn’t get mixed up with my other items.
All in all, I think Grey Man Tactical has released a great product. The backpack blends in with normal travel bags and conceals a very functional set of tools when equipped with Grey Man Tactical’s RMP gear. The new backpack is available for sale now for $149.99 and comes in either grey or black. I’m planning a couple of future range trips with the bag and RMP gear equipped with a holster and firearm to see just how practical it is as an off-body carry rig. So stay tuned for that.
