The Maxpedition Prepared Citizen Bag

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 its 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¬ģ products.

Thanks for your purchase and review Manuel. For a fully discreet method of carrying the panel, the Vertx line of bags is recommended. Vertx bags have a built-in armor pocket that closes with hook and loop. This completely conceals the panel inside. Check them out here: Thanks again and stay safe! - PBA Team
Joseph thank you for your order and review! The Maxpedition Prepared Citizen Bag and Panel Kit is an incredible package when being discreet is of serious importance. Don't hesitate to move that panel around to different bags as needed, this is one of the strengths of having a bulletproof panel over a bulletproof bag! Thanks and stay safe - PBA Team
