My name is Binx. I am a cat. And I am a Bag Expert.
Naturally of course, as I am feline, bags are of particular note and relevance to my interests.
No.. don’t question why. If you do not know then you would not understand.
Anyway, I am here to speak on the account of Beretta.
Among the oldest companies in existence, some 3,458 years in feline reckoning, Beretta is an asset rich and diverse holding with many wondrous things to offer a discerning cat.
Or… you all too, I suppose.
I must give them all the praise in the world for the production of the Field Patrol Bag. An item I have thoroughly tested and found quite satisfactory.
Why was I asked to complete this review?
I wasn’t, I have deemed that I shall review this thing and so I shall. My person keeps muttering, “…always in the way” and that sounds a lot like that Mandalorian phrase so undoubtedly he appreciates my efforts.
Now, the Field Patrol Bag that Beretta has laid out is a 49L, 13.75″ L x 10.25″ W x 22.5″ H, 600D Nylon setup with velcro, MOLLE, and pockets galore. It’s designed to be a “sling bag” rather than a backpack and definitively catering to integrate into daily life.
“Field Patrol” is ultimately just two buzzwords crammed together and thrown onto the bag to make it sound all bugaloo.. or boogout.. or whatever it is when I zip away when the doorbell rings.
What? It’s scary, okay! Moving on.
The Field Patrol is, more realistically, a superbly designed “3 Day” bag. The MOLLE and velcro patches allow you to add tactical accoutrements and ancillary as you might want but the heart of the bag is a weekend travel/urban “survival” kit. ‘Field’ and ‘Patrol’ are words that will hit well on the Google.
Clothes for 3 days. Secure storage for a computer and ancillary power. Bathroom supplies. Basic warming layers, sweatshirts, jackets. Medkit with easy boosts for pain, mild fever, and exposure. The bag is perfect as a grab and go weekend ready kit for a last minute trip of most varieties, a loss of power or utilities, or any number of other events. What you add to the bag will determine what it can do for you as a base unit.
It is an every day ‘ready bag’. Stocked to go across or out of state on short to no notice and arrive with everything to function comfortably when you get there. An easy grab bag carrying extra supplies from within a vehicle, be they medical, ammunition, restraints, warming layers, or what have you in a known layout.
It is not a bag designed for the rigors of a reconnaissance patrol, raid, movement to contact, or anything else so actively exciting. I know.. I know.. the name says so but it it is not. False advertising? Ha! Hardly, it’s just playing to a name and then it delivers as a useful bag. Just like most useful bags of any catchy name.
Anyway, if you’re in the market for travel type ‘go bag‘ then here you go. Just go find it under bags.
What? Don’t give me that look.
