The "Prepared Citizen Classic" was conceived based on the phenomenon in evolutionary biology known as mimicry, in which one organism resembles another in order to improve its odds of survival.
Its outward appearance, reminiscent of the most commonplace daypacks since the 1960s, helps its well-equipped owner take on an uninteresting and non-threatening appearance, protecting him from being scrutinized and targeted.
Conversely, its purpose-built interior with options for concealed carry and ballistic protection provides its owner with a clear tactical advantage.
The "Prepared Citizen Classic" has an overall capacity of 1364 cu. in. / 22L with a dual-side accessible, fully looped lined concealed carry compartment. Despite it's low-key appearance, this pack is built extra tough with Teflon-coated 1000-denier nylon fabric, YKK zippers, Duraflex buckles, meticulously reinforced construction and the high degree of quality, fit and finish that you've come to expect from all Maxpedition® products.
