Crye Precision’s AVS 1000 Pack is starting to show up at your favorite gear sites. Crye unveiled it SHOT Show in January – Expensive, but like all Crye products, worth checking out.
“The AVS1000 Pack is a streamlined, lightweight assault pack designed to provide the user with a variety of access and attachment options,” according to Crye officials. “It can be configured as a standalone pack, a rear plate bag replacement, or attached directly to the plate carrier (virtually any vest) to allow quick access without redundant pack straps.”
The AVS 1000 features a removable frame sheet, bottle holder designed for .75 liter bottles and smaller and a hydration bladder sleeve. It has three medium-sized pockets with exterior access, one inward-expanding medium-sized pocket and externally sewn compression straps.
It’s available in MultiCam, Coyote, Ranger Green and Black. It retails for about $250.
