I’m a vagabond traveling the world indefinitely as a lifestyle and for all intents and purposes, am living out of my backpack. No gear is more vital.[View the review of the newer model.]

I have a loft in a residential skyscraper in Miami in Miami. It gets that name because of the ultra-modern design making it look like a futuristic museum. Everything is white and shiny, everything. Half of the apartment is floor to ceiling windows and the remaining solid walls are covered showcased with backpacks, like a backpack museum.
Nearly 50 backpacks of every kind, most of them modified by my own hands. Just hanging there like relics and artifacts. Failures and past successes of backpacks I retired or never even used.
Not just any backpacks either…
Arc’teryx. Goruck. CamelBak. Black Yak. Geigerrig…
This was all in the pursuit of finding the world’s most perfect backpack for vagabonding.
Perfectly suited for urban EDC, day hiking, travel or any activity that requires free movement…
I discovered this backpack just a month before I left to travel the world nearly 2 years ago. At a time when I had stopped searching and had settled on one.
As if all that time researching and experimenting with all those backpacks has led me to the FAST Pack Litespeed. Perhaps that obsession with backpacks turned to expertise and in turn, appreciation.
I am THE backpack connoisseur.
After almost 2 years of having my trusty FAST Pack Litespeed with me literally every single day across 20 countries and countless situations, I’ve realized it’s the most perfect backpack I have ever equipped.
Like many of my other backpacks, I made many additions and modifications to the FAST Pack Litespeed :
The FAST Pack Litespeed Backpack was designed and developed with tactical use in mind.
This doesn’t limit its range to just military or combat, however. It broadens it to almost any possible function a #backpack could be used for because of its inherent tactical nature.
This includes my physically demanding and adventurous lifestyle of constant world travel.
The FAST Pack Litespeed.
Triple Aught Design is renowned for integrating high-end quality with fashionable style. A rarity in military / tactical specific apparel and gear companies.
In terms of extreme ruggedness and build quality, Goruck Rucksacks are on par. But Triple Aught Design exceeds them in design, versatility and innovation.
In terms of comfort and ergonomics, it fits like a true extension of the body similar to the sportHolster.
With my unrivaled knowledge and experience with backpacks, I state with confidence that the FAST Pack Litespeed is the pinnacle of personal carry gear.
