Hazard 4 Second Front pack
Hazard 4 offers some incredibly durable stitching, not once did I fear of a zipper breaking loose, or MOLLE webbing ripping. The straps and belt are comfortable though I found myself wishing they were a but wider. The Pack itself is not water proof but I found that it's water resistant for a short period of time in the rain. All around the build quality of the pack is great!
The MOLLE webbing layout on the front of the pack is a bit awkward and I'm still not sure as to why Hazard 4 built it this way. As opposed to traditional webbing which is stitched horizontally, this pack runs vertically, meaning that any MOLLE attachable gear runs sideways as shown below. Really it's not a big deal, just different.
The interior of the pack is spacious enough for a day pack, E.D.C. or car bag. I usually put three days of clothes along with my laptop, charger and phone charger in the pack along with the usual W.A.I.F.E system. There's three compartments, a smaller panel on the front which contains compartments for smaller items along with a transparent pouch for a map. The main compartment holds larger items such as clothes, laptop, or other gear. The third compartment is a flat section designed to hold soft body armor.
