Ya know the ol'saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."
Well KUSA was gracious enough to send some swag with my order in the form of a KUSA KP9/KR9 Backpack.
I have to say that gesture is quite appreciated, over the top customer service. Now the least I can do is post some pics and review it.
The KUSA Backpack seems well built, the fabric, straps, MOLLE, zippers and sewing all seem decent materials for the price point. It secures the weapon well, plenty of room for most gear, eyes, ears, mags, ammo, tools, trauma kit and whatever else.
I can easily tote all the above, with up to 500rds of ammo.
Four internal mag pouches, room for more stored loose, and MOLLE pouches can be attached.
I have the bag loaded with the KP9, 6 loaded mags, six 50rd boxes ammo, eyes/ears, holstered XD9 w/ extra mag, twenty 8" targets, notepad/pen and a trauma kit. And there is room for more gear.
Initially I give it 4:5 stars.
There are a couple of points internally where exposed stitching causes me concern, possible lack of durability due to abrasion.
Small Top Pouch
Ammo, trauma kit, eyes or other misc.
Data books, pens, ammo, eyes/ears or other misc.
4 magazine pouches and room for lots of other gear.
Weapon Securement and room for lots of other gear.
Opposing side has a large mesh pouch that nicely fits round 6"-8" Shoot-N-C targets, should fit 10" too. Notebooks and other misc.
Backside, there is an internal pouch that could be used for such as extra padding or even a ballistic plate.
