I’ve finally come to a point where I can consider my testing of the Pantac Tactical Messenger Bag complete. I have used it on numerous trips, as an EDC bag and for numerous other uses. It has served me well mostly due to one major modification. As you can see in the photo at right, I have removed the top panel of the main bag. As you can see in the photo below, the main body used to be accessed by one single zipper. This limited the size of the items I could fit inside.
The modification has really opened up the possibilities for this bag (pun intended). I chose to leave small flaps on either end of the bag to further protect contents inside when the main flap is closed. Ultimately, I have replaced this bag in the carry on/EDC roll for another with a bit more organization but that does not decrease it’s value. My overall conclusion of the Pantac Tactical Messenger bag remains – I believe the solid color bags are a fair deal for the price and I greatly look forward to the 2.0 version of the bag with some of the minor details smoothed out.
