Good first impressions, time will tell Review by Robert S / (Posted on 10/3/2017)
I had originally vacillated between this one, the Dust (smaller), and the Ghost (larger). I took the Goldilocks approach, and it really was just right. Perfect amount of room to hold everything without being excessively large. I appreciate the tons of loops dotted around the pack to attach things to on a hiking/camping trip. Currently use it as my everyday work bag. Big laptops will not fit well (e.g. my Thinkpad T540p barely fits and would likely rupture the laptop sleeve), but anything below about 14" of screen should work fine. The padding on the back and shoulder straps is very comfortable. When I don't want to use the waist strap (which, to be honest, is most of the time), I buckle it and cinch it down and it actually fits comfortably in the small of my back. One thing I worry about is the long-term durability of the MOLLE cutouts. I have a fully-stocked trauma kit bag attached to it (Condor Rip-Away EMT Pouch) and I worry about the cutout webbing holding up over time.

So far so good. Time will tell. First impressions are *very* favorable. Worth the price if it holds up.

DRAGON EGG MK II Review by Aaron J / (Posted on 9/26/2017)
This is my second Dragon Egg MK II. This one I purchased in SHADOW GREY. Pictures do not do just on how the color is in person. Straps, buckles and zippers are high quality. The pack itself is great for 72hr pack/Bug Out Bag. So many pockets and 2 hydration bladder areas. Attention to detail on this pack just goes above and beyond. This pack can be used for so many applications. This pack is my duty pack. My other is at home and serves as a bug out bag. I highly recommend this pack to anyone looking for a pack to use for quick search and gather, bug out, or on the job use. I’ve left for the woods and had everything I needed for three days in this pack. It is extremely comfortable to wear and sleep on as a pillow. Easy to clean as well as I just hide it out really well and let it air dry. Most important this pack makes for a great range pack.

Great Pack Review by Bart B / (Posted on 9/25/2017)
Have been using the Dragon Egg for a couple of weeks. Primarily using it as my EDC for work. Initially ordered the Dust but found that to be too small for my needs. The Dragon Egg has plenty of space for everything I need on a daily bases. At times I have been able to carry my Microsoft Surface and 15" laptop along with files any other office stuff. I have also taken it on a couple of day long hikes in National Forrest. Extremely useful for this also and rides comfortably.

Best all around bag I've ever bought! Review by Raymond M / (Posted on 9/21/2017)
Too many backpacks/bags today are over engineered. They have extra straps, pouches, and so on that is counter productive and just adds weight. Those extra accessories are added just for the sake of having extra accessories. The dragon egg, in my opinion, is perfectly set up with the essential accessories built in and the ability to add to, if one wants. For me, the dragon egg is the perfect size for the office and for a day at the range. I love it so much, I bought a second. By far, the best bag I've bought. Also, I love their olive drab color!

The best EDC daypack, period. Review by George S / (Posted on 9/20/2017)
I travel to the downtown core daily on a 1 hr commuter train, and back again. I need a tough low key day pack for a laptop, lunch, water, some EDC stuff, hat maybe a jacket and sometimes a small umbrella. I've been alternating packs between Arcteryx, Maxpedition, Vanquest, and TT. They are between 20-27 liters are the best quality you can buy. All of these are great at EDC.
The Dragon Egg, which I've been using for 2 weeks will never be replaced, it's the perfect EDC daypack for what I'm carrying, 24 or so litres and around 15 pounds of stuff.
Great value, great quality and I'm now a fan of your products.

Great pack at a great price overall with one odd caveat Review by Arthur G / (Posted on 9/10/2017)
I purchased this pack a few weeks ago. It was shipped immediately and I received it two days later.

Some impressions after using this pack for urban EDC:

Positives:
1. Price paid vs value and quality of product received is outstanding and immediately apparent. Stitching seems perfect and materials used are first rate. Pack feels like it will last a long time.

2. Design is great for urban EDC. Easily beats every other tactical pack I've tried.
a. Side expandable elastic bottle pockets are a phenomenal and a true "killer" feature that should immediately place this pack at the very top of every tactical backpack shopper's list.
b. Great overall organization. Numerous zip mesh pockets are provided. Front compartment offers slots for pens, battery chargers, etc. Main pocket is very useful for gym clothes. Rear pocket offers a virtually perfect way to carry a laptop. Absolutely no complaints there...

Negatives:
Just one... For some odd reason the pack designers chose to go with a 5 column molle design on the front of the pack. It is almost useless as there are no manufacturers I could find that make pouches to accommodate this arrangement, Direct Action included. As great as the pack is overall, it could use additional organization options for EDC and I feel like this is an opportunity that was missed by the pack designers. A four or a six molle column design would have been much more useful. I did eventually figure out a way to attach a six column molle wide Kifaru organizer pouch to the front and it functions perfectly, yet I wish that Direct Action would either redesign the Dragon Egg to accept standard four or six column molle pouches, or come out with a five column pouch of there own.

Overall score:
4.5/out of 5 stars

Nice Pack Review by Leo P / (Posted on 9/8/2017)
I decided to go with the Dragon Egg over the Ghost because I thought it was going to be bigger than it is. It's a decent size but I really wish I would have gotten the Ghost instead. The bag itself is nice and it seems durable. I got the Adaptive Green color and it was darker than the picture, just an FYI. The only grip I have about this pack is that you can't tuck away the waste straps like you can on the dust. Disappointed about that but over I would recommend.

Very pleased! Review by Samuel H / (Posted on 9/7/2017)
Normally I don't write reviews but felt compelled to do so with this purchase.

I've owned this backpack for a few weeks now and I am very pleased with the product. It has an extreme level of customization from the myriad of pockets, strap placement and molle webbing. The material itself seems very durable (not being a material expert myself). I'm coming from using a Swiss Gear backpack for a few years and some of the seams near the drag-handle on that bag began to tear, so I went down the path of researching and looking for a backpack that would have some pretty extreme durability, organization and overall function as an EDC bag.

As others have stated, the design itself feels not too militaristic, but also of course depends on the color scheme you go with (shadow grey for me).

I also was impressed that purchasing this backpack on the Direct Action website was actually less expensive than what Amazon was charging, which is quite rare from my experience.

Overall I'm looking forward to many years of use of this bag, and if it ever does wear out on me I just may go for the Ghost!

Perfect mid size pack with one minor flaw Review by Christopher F / (Posted on 9/5/2017)
Perfect balance between Dust and Ghost. Own two of these bags! Great get up and go bag. Holds plenty and shows no sign of strain. The one minor thing I'd change is adding a pocket on the front of the bag to hold smaller items. The sunglass pouch is great, but another pocket or pouch would be perfect. Otherwise, bag is darn near perfect.

Overall great...one problem. Review by Alex B / (Posted on 8/3/2017)
I've had it for a couple weeks and I love the quality of work that they put into this bag. It's both sturdy and comfortable to carry. The only complaint I have with it, is the setup. The internal pocket placements and the internal main compartment, are questionable. I feel like they could've made the bag expand better with the internal compartments/zip pockets (especially in the main compartment/laptop spaces). It feels like I'm going to overstretch the bag too much. The pockets within cut down on actual "positive" space, to utilize. Admin compartment is awesome though!

Beyond expectations! Review by Alexandra N / (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Let me preface by saying that after 20 yrs in the LE field I've grown to be a gear snob! After much research, I recently purchased this DRAGON EGG as a gift for my kid who's entering the military. I opted for this Direct Action backpack based in part on the glowing reviews of other customers, but I was also impressed by the manufacturer profile. As soon as I opened the box, I knew I made the right choice; sturdy & quality material, pockets & compartments galore, BA paracord handle, and padded straps and back rest. The release buckles have velcro strip to secure them so as to prevent noise from jingling plastic; the zipper pulls are also well made and seem indestructible, just like the rest of the bag. Best bag I've ever purchased and it goes to my kid! I'm jealous!

Good quality piece of gear Review by Robert F / (Posted on 7/28/2017)
If you want a quality piece of gear this is for you! I love the quality and the layout of the bag. Lots of compartments to organize your gear. Small enough for EDC and large enough for a 2 day bag. Only complaint is it is a bit pricey but in the end worth it. I foresee this lasting a long time. I DO recommend this if your looking for a EDC backpack.

Great EDC and Get Home Bag Review by John M / (Posted on 7/20/2017)
This bag is one of the best constructed medium sized bags I have ever owned. I fit everything I need for an every day carry and for my get home bag in case of an emergency. It's VERY comfortable with all the shoulder padding. I haven't done an overnight camping trip with it yet, but i have complete confidence in it. The one product I would like to see from this company is a stealth bag for the grey man. I know that doesn't match the "direct action" method, but This is such a good product and reputable company that I would love to see their take on it.

I've had the original Dust for over a year of daily use to and from work. I wanted another pack to have around stocked for camping, hiking or whatever comes next. Yes they're a little pricey but, so what...you get more than what you pay for. I've purchased the Dragon Egg MKII and happy to say Direct Action has not let me down. I'm a big fan. I'd pay significantly more if they were made in America and more contributing to Making America Great!

I picked the right pack! Review by Ed C / (Posted on 6/8/2017)
I did a lot of research. This is my first non-made in the USA backpack in 5-6 years. I would have felt I was taking a chance spending this amount on a backpack I hadn't seen other than in internet reviews and videos, except that all the reviews were positive. Well I was still pleasantly surprised! The build quality seems top notch (I've only been carrying it for 2 weeks, though.). I love the versatility. For example being able to hang a bladder by itself or in the main compartment if I have a laptop or tablet in the hardshell/padded section. Laser cut MOLLE and multiple lash points along the front of the pack. The pack literally fills each box I needed checked on my list:
Rugged quality, aesthetics, comfort, keeper, mesh pockets, MOLLE, bladder comparability, safely stow a laptop/tablet, fleece lined pocket, admin organization, water bottle pouch, YKK zippers (and I really like the unique zipper pulls!). I have been showing this pack off to all my EDC-minded friends and everyone is impressed. The price might be a little high for overseas manufacturing, and typically I like to support American made products; however I just had to have one of these when I saw them. Again: I'm not disappointed either! Good job.

Quality Day pack Review by Michael H / (Posted on 6/6/2017)
After scanning the net for the perfect day pack I found the Dragon egg mk1. I've been waiting for the mk2 pack to come back in stock in olive drab for almost a year. I recently got the email stating they were back in stock AHEAD of the projected date. Finally got my pack and i'm very excited to test it's limits in the field and as my motorcycle commuter. Upon unboxing I can tell this pack is ruggad and made from quality materials. The zipper pulls are especially heavy duty and I love the position of the eye-pro pocket on the top for easy access. The outer side pockets are very useful as they are able to stretch to fit a full Nalgene bottle and compress after using. It's hard to pick out a negative about this pack but the only thing i was slightly dissapointed about was the width of the laptop/tablet sleeve on the back of the pack. The zipper sits right below where the straps are sown to the pack which only allows for a 13" laptop MAX, otherwise you risk not getting the zipper closed. Besides this hurdle the look is very modern and the setup meets all my essential needs.

Overall the bag is an excellent value, outstanding quality from an equally outstanding company. However, my one complaint would be the buckles. They feel inferior compared to the rest of the bag, and even when clipped, they rattle from slightly loose fitment. If they incorporated higher quality buckles, this bag would have absolutely no complaints from me. Don't let that deter you from making a purchase though, you won't be disappointed with this bag!

The dragon egg is a super practical and versatile bag. Top quality for aan incredible price. IT can be used as an EDC bag but in a SHTF situation iT can carry an incredible load as a bug out bag.

Excellent Everyday Carry Pack Review by Sean M / (Posted on 2/20/2017)
I purchased this pack in adaptive green and am beyond satisfied. First off, I live in NY and received the pack within 24 hours of ordering it. The bag itself has an astounding amount of storage space. I can keep an entire winter jacket in the large pocket and still have room for my 13" laptop and a medical kit, among other supplies, with the pack staying well balanced and comfortable. The exterior also has an abundance of options for securing gear. The side/ water bottle pockets work perfectly, and the paracord handle and laser-cut MOLLE are a great touch. All materials seem durable and the bag is very well made. No loose stitching and no visible imperfections. All in all, this is hands down the best EDC pack I've owned and I highly recommend it. This is my first Direct Action product, but I'm sure it won't be my last.

Great bag Review by Anthony V / (Posted on 1/18/2017)
Great size bag for what I was looking for. Just an annoyance is the bottom buckle attachment for sleep bags or whatever was reversed so the clips are on the outside and the seam by your lower back isn't hitting it.

Superb bag. 10/10 Would reccomend. Review by Fitzy / (Posted on 12/30/2016)
This serves as my current EDC bag for work and weekends. I carry plenty of gear, and while my nags tend to be heavy, the Dragons Egg MKII carries comfortable on shoulder straps alone. I have not experienced the buckle rattling problem about which others have commented. The water bottle pockets are the best I've ever seen in any bag I've carried--huge thumbs. 10/10 would recommend.

My only dislikes are that the velcro keepers scratch my arm when I put the backpack on . The clips are poor quality and rattle and although the egg shape is unique, where the inside pockets are located, causes loss of space other than that a terrific pack of this size thanks da

Great Pack! Review by Jay S / (Posted on 12/28/2016)
This pack is all they said it would be. it is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. I use it as a bug out bag and have it stuffed with survival gear. Unlike many, I try this stuff out first to be sure it is going to supply me and my wife with what we need in the wild if need be. The Dragon Egg pack works for me very nicely.

Perfect size, has everything I've been looking for, only downer , the buckles are loud when rattled, I've seen that as a con on YouTube reviews, I thought their mic was just picking it up loud but nope, idea for the mk3 , fix the buckle situation, I might try cannibalize an old pack for a quieter buckle

Excellent EDC Review by David W / (Posted on 11/28/2016)
I love this pack. I truly carry it everyday. It is the perfect size and if packed correctly it can also be used for a short camping or holiday trip. The reason I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the buckles which rattle a lot and don't hold the strap in place very well when cinching them down and also one other minor complaint would be when the pack is fully loaded it is very difficult to put in a 32 nalgene bottle. But overall its is an excellent pack with many uses and load-out options. I plan to purchase another bag from DAG soon.

Extremely pleased with quality, craftsmanship and value. This will now be my only pack for one day bushcrafting outings. Simply the best quality I've ever seen in this type of pack, very rugged and just the right size. I'm 60 years old and I've owned several packs and I must say that this is the one I've been most impressed with. Great job guys.

Good design Review by Ruben R / (Posted on 11/23/2016)
love the looks of the backpack, exelent backpack for the price. only thing that bother me is that it's slips too much when only using one strap to carry, and the top side straps interfere with the zipper for easy acces. would love to see a lip around the zippers, to prevent rain water from entering.

Comfortable as all get out. Review by Matt B / (Posted on 11/1/2016)
I only have one gripe about this backpack, and that was the selection of colors. I would have liked to purchase it in a Kryptek Mandrake pattern but it wasn't available. The waist belt is difficult to tighten as well.

Now that the cons are done with, the pros of this pack are that it's very comfortable, I've used it twice so far on my day hikes and it's the perfect size for my gear and water. The quality of thI'd pack cannot be understated, it's superb in its construction. Plus it's called the Dragon Egg, how cool is that!

Love it Review by Jeremy V / (Posted on 10/18/2016)
Exactly what I expected. I did a lot of research, watched many hours of reviews on packs, and decided on this one. Even when I had a shipping problem (which was the fault of FedEx and not Direct Action) I sent Direct Action an email and suddenly the issue was gone. Now I am not saying they are magical wizards capable of fixing even corporate mess ups with other companies, but I am also not not saying that.

Love my pack. The Dragon Egg is comfortable, holds all of my EDC gear, doesn't look overly military (I got a grey one) or threatening.

So yeah, if you are on the fence about quality, or comfort, don't be. This pack feels great and you can tell they made it to last.

It took a sub par pack to make me realize what to appreciate in a good one Review by Christian B / (Posted on 10/16/2016)
I attempted to save money by originally going with a pack for about 60$. I ate my pride after about a year of abuse. I ended up blowing out the zippers on it while on the job causing a pretty big headache. I truly believe money is well spent on everything for the dragon egg.

First off, the zippers are heavy duty YKK zippers that will take the stress of a fully packed pack. The material and stitching is all high quality and top notch. The 500 cordura is a lot more durable and sturdy then anything else out on the market and will stand up to years of abuse.

The amount of thought put into the design of the pack is extremely functional. I personally use it for an EDC and work bag for Law Enforcement. I'm able to comfortably pack out everything I'd need for a shift. The side pockets not only accommodate 32 oz nalgenes but my 40 oz hydroflask. It's extremely convenient to have both coffee and water with me. Also with the ability to utilize a hydration bladder if needed. I can still pack out my coat, food, medkit and miscellaneous gear all very organized with space to spare.

Overall I feel like this is a one stop purchase. This bag is extremely versatile whether it be for work, travel, hunting or EDC. This is the type of quality that will stand up to every day abuse and still last a lifetime. Don't buy something cheap that you will eventually replace. Make the right decision the first time and only make one purchase.

After using Camelbak tactical packs almost exclusively for years for work/hiking (I am a SAR medic instructor) I stumbled across this pack. I love it. I can't even tell it is on my back. It's big enough that I can even pack in 72hr gear if I go minimalist. Easily fits my 24hr gear and medical kit. I would highly recommend.

Best backpack I've ever owned Review by Brad S / (Posted on 9/21/2016)
Outstanding bag, great quality, super comfortable. As a Soldier I carry this to work every day. I bought the black so I can wear it in any uniform. I like the new style of side pockets that seem to hold water bottles better than the older version of this bag (from what I've seen in video reviews). I would have liked the interior to be lined with a brighter/lighter color so contents in my bag are more visible in low light. Also would have liked a small slit pocket on the front of the bag to slide in small/flat items quickly. All minor critiques that will hopefully be used to update a version 3, but still clearly a superior everyday carry/day pack.

High price, but well worth it. Very high quality and versatile Review by Christopher Y / (Posted on 9/14/2016)
I bought this to replace my previous EDC bag. I wanted something a little more compact since I am no longer a student. This bag is exceptional. The support system is superb and you can still haul a decent amount of material if you need to (was able to hold everything I needed for a three day weekend). While the price is a bit high, you get an incredibly high quality product that will last.

Simply Fantastic!! Review by Keith / (Posted on 9/12/2016)
I just want to start off by saying the customer service at Direct Action is second to none. Allan is truly one of the best people I have ever dealt with. The bag itself is simply amazing. My bag did not arrive on time due to the fault of the USPS. Direct Action automatically refunded my shipping without me even having to ask. Within a few hours of the bags arrival Allan had already contacted me saying the shipping was going to be refunded. I can't say enough nice things about this company and their products. Time will tell how the bag holds up but I expect no problems.
