Grey Ghost Gear has released a new pack: the “TQ/Thirst Quencher.” Hopefully, this means it’ll be available from Grey Ghost Canada too.
The new pack is described as a hydration-capable EDC pack, and appears to be designed with GG’s typical care.
The main compartment holds a 3L bladder with room leftover for a rolled up jacket and miscellaneous necessities, and they’ve set it up for ambidextrous wear.
Says Grey Ghost Gear,
“[In consideration of] the ambidextrous wearer, [each hydration pack straw] is equipped to run the drinking tube up through the top of the pack and down either shoulder, where you’ll find an elastic strap for securing the tube for easy use on the move. Whether you’re headed out on a day hike, flying to your next adventure or a day at the beach, the T.Q. is ready.
Past the primary compartment, the next pocket has an organizational pouch for your flashlight, writing utensils, additional necessary gear, and even your wallet. Thanks to the two adjustable side straps, over-stuffing won’t be an issue, as the straps compress both aforementioned compartments with ease.
The front-most pouch enclosure is intended for the item you need the most immediate access to; whether it be your phone, a snack or medical supplies. Two loops on the front of the pouch allow for the quick attachments or insertions.
Each zipper has a generous plastic finger loop for quick access. Like our other bags, there is a hidden pocket on the bottom that stows a rain cover for the unexpected inclement weather. The back panel has concealed padding that is completely covered in breathable mesh, allowing air to circulate down your spine.”
The TQ Hydration Pack is available in Black Diamond & Orange Heather, Black Diamond & Black Heather, Black Diamon & Grey Heather, and Coyote Brown. It’s manufactured with RipStop (30% lighter than 500D Cordura) LiteLok (water resistant up to 127cm and less visible in low light environments). The pack holds 594 cubic inches, with dimensions of 17.5h x 8.5w x 5d.
