The design premise for the Kadre bag was to create the ultimate go bag - one high volume bag to carry a full cache worth of guns, gear, and ammo. The backpack needed to be tough as hell, provide modular mounting options, accept full-size rifles & pistols, support loads of ammo, and still, present a low-vis optic for carry in urban areas. Functionally it needed to be tactical AF without screaming military-style or reading like every overtly-tactical bag on the market. It also needed to be at home in the back of a pickup or being rucked to a primitive bugout site. The Kadre is our solution. It is capable of storing rifles up to 35" in length with barrel extension shroud.
The rifle can be lashed to the vertical Velcro Molle with the included dual-side Velcro straps for secure carry. An internal frame sheet provides both support for the weight of the rifle and also a barrier between wearer and bag contents. Two interior padded pistol pockets fit a full-size with room for extra magazines. The inner flap is equipped with an integrated compression sack for apparel, providing quick access, and segmenting your softgoods within the main compartment. Externally the CORDURA® chassis has five rows of butted Molle perfect for attaching accessories, such as the Triple S Dopp Kit for additional storage (sold separately). Quick access exterior main pocket fits up to four AR magazines, with secondary interior pocket for eyeglasses and key lanyard. The bag features a large field of loop Velcro for badging.
A top-mounted water-resistant zipper secures a quick-access travel pocket - perfect for your digital carry, passport or wallet. The YKK zippered rear compartment houses a quick-access padded 15" laptop sleeve and a multitude of admin pocketing. A hydration bladder pocket accepts up to a 3-Liter bladder, complete with hose access port and routing. Padded backpack shoulder straps are stowable to keep the bag completely clean of snag hazards. Dual webbing straps on the back of the Kadre allow it to be placed onto the handle of most wheeled luggage. Whether your range is a five-star VIP bunker or a primitive flat-site, the Kadre will ruck all your essentials.

Received my First armored bag. I went with the Viktos upscale 2 and honestly it’s too small. I should have picked the XL version. I am still carrying it with my first aid kit and a Glock 43. I can put a Glock 27 in it but it’s tight. I think Premier body armor company is fantastic and buying from a defense contractor is pretty cool. And made in USA is even better. I will upgrade to larger backpack in the future. Thanks Mr Fowler
If you want a great everyday bag that holds everything you need( including lvl 3a plate, 10mm with optic and mfak mini) plus your normal everyday items in a slim bag, the upscale xl is great. I’ve had friends complement the bag without knowing how much of a wolf in sheeps clothing it is. The panel fits perfectly and is extremely. I can barely feel the difference with or without the panel in the bag. Top notch work all around on the bag and armor. Add The only complaint I have is that the sling is a little narrower then I would like personally and I wish they made a left/right handed version
Very happy with Premiere body armor. Shipping was pretty fast. The Bag was exceptional, and the IIIA Panel fit like a glove. Love the black multicam pattern. The fit and finish where both great. The panel is so thin and light I don't even feel it. Very happy with my purchase, look forward to purchasing a vest from Premier Body Armor soon.
i needed a new backpack when when riding to a from work , i also needed a new range bag too , riding down the hwy at 65mph the bag is very secure, it dose not move around at all , even when i have weight in it, which is great....and having premiers backpack panel behind me gives me a little bit of peace of mind.. because hey you never know.
