The Motherlode Killer

For years and years the Camelbak Motherlode has been one of the most popular assault packs around and a best seller here at Cadet Direct. Its Mil-spec construction and extensive feature list mean it is highly regarded by regular, reserve and cadet forces. However the one big drawback is its price. Costing a whopping £126.95 the Motherlode pack is outside many people's price range. However here at Cadet Direct we have an exciting new alternative at a fraction of the Motherlodes cost.

Construction & Colour

Instantly you will see that the two packs are very similar and that unlike some cheaper MTP packs the MTP colours and patterns are spot on. This means that the tactical assault pack is fully compatible with the latest generation of MTP uniforms. The construction of the Motherlode killer is also on par with the Motherlode. Constructed from 1000D waterproof nylon this new pack is very durable and the quality of its construction is evident as soon as you open it.

Comfort, Wearability & Hydration Compatibility

One big difference between the two packs is that the tactical assault pack does not come with a water bladder as standard. However with this in mind it has been designed to incorporate a compartment and H20 port for a large bladder. A big part of making a successful pack is its wear-ability and comfort. The Motherlode has always been an extremely comfortable pack to wear and our customers love it for that. After extensive field testing of this new pack we found it to be equally as comfortable as the Motherlode even when packed full of kit. The air mesh back and shoulder straps reduce perspiration making this pack very breathable. The Motherlode has a slightly different system to channel the air around your back which we found to be less effective when compared to the tactical assault pack. Both packs include adjustable waist and sternum straps with quick release buckles to keep them tight against your back. This is important as loose packs will often become uncomfortable over prolonged periods of wear.

Pockets & Compartments

The Tactical assault pack has a very similar layout to the Motherlode. Both packs have a bladder compartment, large main compartment and two smaller front pockets with MOLLE modular attachment system and Velcro plates for ZAP badges. Inside the compartments the Motherlode does include an array of zipped mesh pockets and organisers which the tactical assault pack does not. These are a nice addition in the motherlode however we don't consider them to be essential.

The Veridct

If you've ever wanted a Motherlode but don't want to remortgage your house then here we have a great alternative. With similar looks, functionality and wear ability at less than half the price we feel these are brilliant packs for cadets and instructors alike! Find out more below. The new MTP tactical assault pack has been designed specifically as a cost effective alternative to the Motherlode and is available right now at Cadet Direct for only £39.95. http://www.cadetdirect.com/mtp-tactical-assault-pack
