HEAVY DUTY TACTICAL BACKPACK

The Dragon Egg Mk II is an updated version of our best selling backpack.

It’s a lightweight and versatile backpack designed for Military and Law Enforcement operators. This medium sized pack has a wide camo and solid color selection that also makes it a great choice for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. You can also get it in snow camo - PenCott SnowDrift™ for winter activities. The camo/color selections with the low profile look and feel makes it a perfect Everyday Carry (EDC) bag. If you’re looking for a heavy duty MOLLE backpack for your laptop, tablet, iPad, hydration bladder, etc. or just a solid base for your bug out bag (BoB) – Dragon Egg® made by Direct Action® is the best value for your money.

The Dragon Egg® is a 25+ liter backpack suitable for either short patrol duties or larger EDC pack. The pack features three zippered compartments. The main compartment has an internal hydration sleeve and mesh pocket. The main compartment also has a center tube exit for a hydration tube. The rear pocket features a padded sleeve which can be used for safely carrying multiband radio devices or a laptop. The front pocket of Direct Action® Dragon Egg® features a zippered mesh pocket and internal organizer for notepads, GPS, writing utensil, and other small essentials. 2 updated side pockets can carry small and flat items. Thanks to the newly added elastic,the side pockets will fit a standard U.S. canteen or nalgene water bottle. The Direct Action® Dragon Egg Mk II® also has a soft velour lined zippered pocket for glasses, cell phone, etc. The pack also has daisy chain webbing that runs along the front panel seam for attaching any carabiners or similar gear to the pack. Laser-cut system compatible with MOLLE/PALS makes the backpack not only fully modular, but also still maintains a low profile look. Laser-cut does not absorb water like traditional MOLLE/PALS webbing. Thanks to the egg shape, the pack has a smaller height and width than other packs with similar capacity and makes it more comfortable with belt kits or ballistic vests. Suspension system is based on comfortable shoulder straps and internal stiffener in the back. Waistbelt is detachable and can be stowed away. Made of durable 500D Cordura® nylon fabric with water resistant coating. Combat Vent System®, the innovative ventilation system used in backpacks, and provides increased comfort for their users. Made of contoured foam profiles with multiple air channels that are combined with airy mesh, CVS® keeps the pack off the back, which enhances air circulation preventing heat build-up and sweating, while the stiff foam ensures comfort and stability.

We also have two other backpacks available. Our 20+ liter Dust® backpack which is great for EDC. If you are interested in a 3 day backpack, check out our Ghost® Backpack.

A good blend of tactical and casual. Review by Cameron B / (Posted on 3/12/2019)
The Dragon Egg Mk2 is a fantastic day pack, worth every dollar spent. I have taken this backpack on several patrols, in addition to everyday civy carry. It fits snugly. In terms of capacity, I have had enough for for 2 days worth of kit. It fits at least one spare change of clothing in addition to various day supplies (rations, extra mags etc). The plethora of pockets makes organizing and separating your kit easy. My favorite pocket is the one directly touching your back - great for a Camelbak. I am worried about the side water-bottle pockets. Though they are snug enough for everyday wear, if you are doing more strenuous activity or moving through thick brush I would recommend tying your water bottle to the backpack.

The only wear and tear I have noticed is that the fabric on the body-side of the shoulder straps is beginning to fray. One other note: though it is water resistant, if you know you working in sustained rain, bag your stuff.

If you plan on storing a ballistic helmet with this bag, I would recommend the next sized bag. A helmet in the Dragon Egg takes up significant space.

Overall, great back pack. I am presently surprised at the quality and functionality Direct Action has in this pack and all their equipment.

Great work Direct Action!

Great diaper bag Review by George / (Posted on 2/2/2019)
While not made for it this bag makes a awesome diaper bag. Im a pretty big guy and a hello kitty/unicorn bag made for a small woman just isint for me, not to mention I could never get them over my 52" chest. After 2 fell apart in a few months even my wife wanted a manly bag that would last. This one does all we need and more it adjust from her small frame to my 250 lb self with ease. Now that we no longer need a diaper bag we have a great backpack for any use. I have a few "max" brand bags and the great thing about this one is it is a much more flexible softer material but still super strong. The build quality is great and the padding does a fine job even loaded up around 30+ lbs.

Awesome Review by Jason M / (Posted on 1/22/2019)
Unbelievably happy with this purchase. I looked everywhere and reviewed I dont know how many bags and brands. Couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of material and assembly of this pack. Great job! I have used this EVERY day, loaded with everything I need and use. Zero problems. Love the side pockets. Love the organization in the main compartments. Most comfortable straps I have found on a pack.

Great patrol car bag Review by MATTHEW P / (Posted on 1/10/2019)
I’m a cop, and I hang it on the passenger seat of my patrol car. Big pocket works for my jacket, high-vis vest, watch cap, lunch box, all that. The admin pocket holds all my paper nonsense, extra pens, gear and medicine. I really like it. Really well made. Only thing is DA is a Polish company so I sort of wish it was made in Poland. No biggie, though, still high quality materials.

Where has this bag been all my life? Review by Andrew / (Posted on 11/1/2018)
Where has this bag been all my life? I've got the Ghost MKII. Great 3 day assault pack. This Dragon is my EDC. I work with service dogs; for you guys returning home safely from combat. So having to use this all day is awesome, very modular, thin compartments for everything and very comfortable.

Dragon egg Review by Joseph P / (Posted on 10/13/2018)
I love the way this pack looks
Nobody has a pack like this
I liked it so much I gave my 1st pack I bought a yest ago a friend. It was still brand new with the tags still on
He loves the pack so much he will not take it off
He also weres it to bed
I bought two more
In the admin compartment add another mess zip pocket above the existing one plenty of room for it
In main compartment maketh mess pocket longer
Also make the padded shoulder straps 4 inches longer
I forgot the little pocket for your phone and sun glasses needs to be 50% bigger
Other wise the pack is perfect
I like to add thing to my packs that are very useful
What and will not add a lot of weight like 2 mil-spec monkey small patch pannel
I got a large for my ghost
The lazer cut molle is outstanding
DIRECT ACTION GEAR ,THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND THEY DO IT VERY WELL
I LOVE ALL 3 OF MY DRAGON EGGS MK2 AND MY GHOST MK2

Awesome pack Review by Dianne R / (Posted on 9/30/2018)
I’m currently carrying this pack around Coeur d’Alene on day hikes. Just got back from Glacier National Park, and I was certainly glad to have such a light weight pack. I’ve got to say, this is the perfect pack. I can tell that it is quality, and will last me for several years to come. Plus, it was definitely the nicest looking pack I saw at the airport a couple days ago, and I saw a lot of different packs there.

Overall GREAT bag! Review by EM~DOC / (Posted on 9/24/2018)
I've been using this pack for almost 2 years, and it never disappoints. Its durable and a fantastic bag. I would like to see some more modularity to the main pouch, and some more organization in the main that would make carrying small to medium gear in the main pouch easier without adding more small bags for long trips and EDC.

AWESOME PACK! Review by Kenneth H / (Posted on 7/13/2018)
I wish that in the six years I served in the US Army I had a pack like this!! Absolutely comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The quality is unlike anything I've purchased yet. I've had: Mil Spec Monkey, Tactical Tailor, Hazard 4, SOC, Drago, etc.... to name a few. And nothing comes close, in my opinion. Very well priced for the quality. I will definitely buy another very soon in a different camo color!

A great pack!! Review by bailey / (Posted on 7/6/2018)
I bought this to replace a High Sierra backpack that I was using as an everyday backpack. While I like the High Sierra backpack, it just wasn't what I was looking for. I did a lot of searching for a backpack that would be durable and suitable for what I was wanting to do. When I got it I was able to put two days worth of clothes, a first aid kit, some extra paracord, some ear buds, two battery chargers, a flash light, a multi-tool, extra bits, a full size knife, an umbrella, and a water bottle. I bought the MKII over a year ago and I still love this back pack just as much as when I first got it a year ago. I enjoy it so much that I am consiering getting a second one for travelling. This pack is worth every cent.

Brutally Honest Review by Cindy C / (Posted on 6/19/2018)
I waited over a year to buy this bag because it was always sold out when I came to purchase but I had my mind set on this bag. I liked the way it looked and its features. I will start by saying that this bag is quality built. It's durable and looks crisp. Upon arrival, the bag was smaller than I expected but is still a good size (I was just expecting something bigger). I quickly utilized the hydration pack compatibility feature. I found that once I inserted a full hydration bag into the center pocket that pocket was near full capacity, which also made it difficult to use the back pocket. There is generally a lot of room for your things but it almost has to be packed strategically which can be a bit annoying when you want quick access. The price is a bit higher compared to other assault packs, which I pay into more for the brand. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and I've received multiple compliments on the bag. I think the inner workings of the bag could use improvement. I'm not here to leave a bad review just critique because I know Direct Action is capable of producing the best assault pack.

Dragon egg Review by Jason K / (Posted on 5/2/2018)
This pack is a great buy. Quality is definitely better than other packs I've had before. Excellent stitching. Padding on the back and straps is really nice. I have the urban/ shadow gray color which is darker than web picture. But was very pleased. Only downside for me would be that the pack doesn't like to stand up when set on floor or ground. No biggie though!

Direct Action Dragon Egg Review by Glen S / (Posted on 5/1/2018)
The Dragon Egg is a great EDC pack and day hike pack. It has a very good selection internal pockets for organizing your gear with a clean exterior to minimize snagging on your gear or underbrush in the woods. The external water bottle pockets are very useful and can be closed up to avoid snagging. This is has been a welcome edition to my gear collection and a good alternative when my Direct Action Messenger Bag is not appropriate for the activity at hand.

TOP NOTCH! Review by marvin b / (Posted on 3/31/2018)
I recently purchased the Dragon Egg MkII after a thorough research of MANY MANY top notch backpacks, none of which filled my needs. They either had some of the features I was looking for, but NONE had them all except the Direct Action Gear Dragon Egg MkII. Delivery was exceptionally FAST! It was immediately apparent straight from the box that this is a Quality product. I should also mention that I purchased this backpack in spite of two bad reviews I came across in my research process. One review complaint was that it was to small, and that this individual did not like the fact that the zippers are not water resistant via zipper flaps. I immediately disregarded the "to small" complaint as his own oversight, and the zipper issue as my rain fly remedies that! The other negative review complained about the lower buckle placement and side pocket expansion. It appears as though you have remedy both of those "issues" making this an ideal backpack for my needs. TOP NOTCH QUALITY GEAR!!!! Thanks Direct Action Gear,

Great pack Review by Raymundo H / (Posted on 3/30/2018)
Had a sling pack prior to this and I must say this is a great edc pack. I carry my Mac book, lunch bag and 2 water bottles on the side pouches solid stuff. The weight evenly distributes on both shoulders now very comfortably. The only thing I added was bungee cordes on the side pouches thru the center loop to hold down my water bottles securely.
