Details

T.H.E. Pack U.A.P. (Ultimate Assault Pack) New for 2013, Spec.-Ops Brand presents the latest in 3-Day / Assault pack evolution: T.H.E. Pack U.A.P. Based on our top-rated, battle proven T.H.E. Pack, we have improved cargo access, ergonomics, comfort & durability without compromising the core features that have made T.H.E. Pack the number one selling, legitimate individual Tactical Assault pack in both Iraq and Afghanistan for the past 10 years!
  • TRULY MODULAR: The first pack of its kind! Fully Modular both inside and out! See our complete line of Drop-in, bolton gear organizers for electronics, personal gear, Hydration management, load carrying and comfort.
  • INCREASED CARGO OPTIONS: We added a padded, zippered body panel for additional storage, optional frame sheet, SAPI / ballistic plates, or soft armor panels. (also makes a great admin pocket for Laptops & tablets as well).
  • NEW DOUBLE-DOWN GRID-LOK PANEL: 2 FUNCTIONS IN ONE: Our combination of Velcro and modular accessory mounting system allows for attachment of additional cargo pouches & Velcro backed military insignia, name tapes and most importantly, the USA flag!
  • FASTER-EASIER CARGO ACCESS: We have re-positioned the zippered access points of our 3 main cargo compartments to facilitate easier opening and closing while loaded as well as adding to the useable volume of each compartment.
  • BALANCED HYDRATION: No more lump on the back! We have relocated the Hydration pocket to the mid-point of the pack (between main compartment and outer pockets) for greater comfort, better balance and easier insertion / removal of bladders.
  • FULL INSIDE VISIBILITY: Now the entire interior of the main cargo pocket is fully lined in our trademark High-Viz yellow for even better visibility and easier access to contents
  • OPTIMIZED STORAGE: We moved the zipper on the main compartment to an outer position to create a trap-door style pack for better cargo management.
  • INCREASED DURABILITY: We added to our already bomb-proof design with a double-layer, monolithic pack body with fewer seams & stress points to increase overall strength & durability. PLUS, all attachment loops, drag handles and zippers are sewn completely through the pack's double layer body for maximum strength.
  • BATTLE PROVEN SOLULDER HARNESS: Our one-piece breathable shoulder pad design still the toughest most functional on the market! (OVER 250,000 PACKS AND NOT A SINGLE PACK RETURNED WITH A HARNESS FAILURE!).
  • DESIGNED TO LAST: Made from time tested 1000D Cordura Nylon fabric, huge YKK # 10 USA Made self-healing zippers and our exclusive patented BATTLE BUCKLES hardware - All put together with combat proven manufacturing!
  • Pack Dimensions: 19" high, 13" wide, 12" thick at bottom tapering to 9" at top. Main Compartment: 19" high x 13" wide x 7" thick @ 1730 cubic inches. Top Pocket: 8" high x 10" wide x 2.5" thick @ 250 cubic inches. Bottom Pocket: 10" high x 12" wide x 3.5" thick @ 570 cubic inches.

simply put, this is the most ruggedly engineered, well thought through design I've encountered. I own multiple bags for multiple purposes, and every one of them gets constant rugged abuse. the only thing to have faltered after tons of this is the forward facing surface of the shoulder straps have frayed a bit because they constantly hit velcro on other gear. if this is the only possible negative thing I can say after years of every single day use, this bag won't give most people a single thing to worry about over a lifetime of use...

During a rough hike with my best friend, we exchanged packs, both of which weighed the same amount. He had a uap, i wont specify what i had..but this is vastly superior. Everything from the double stitching, double walls, the cargo space..to the padding and even the material made my pack both look and feel like a toy. Will gladly stick with this and likely get a 2nd one. (Posted on 11/21/2014)

as you can see in my other reviews i have 2 of the t.h.e. packs. when.this one was on sale i just couldn't resist. i love my other 2 so much i felt i couldn't go wrong. i was right. another super quality product. the old and new both have some high points of their own. this new pack is much easier to use with a hydration pouch. or using the pocket for my laptop is much easier. the new buckles and chest strap are great. more comfortable than the old. this is now my edc pack. the only trade of i didn't like is that the zipper pouch inside the main is gone. but for the rest of the improvements it is a no brainer.

great with two exceptionsReview by Sand box hopper
this is my 3rd T.H.E pack the 1st one is still going strong with family 7yrs after I bought it, sold my 2nd one to get this pack. I love how the mine compartment was redone to better make room with new zipper placement. the padded area is wonderful for my laptop. I like the Velcro too since I am a path whore. the extra webbing on the side fixed my #1 issue with the old style. internal bladder pouch moved to outside was very smart makes getting documents out and keeping them flat much better. I can live 5 days F.O.B. hopping out of the pack as is or longer if I put the long pockets on the sides now. only 2 complaints I have the waist belt still sucks and the top pouch is not the size of the bottom one when there is almost 2 inches of room between them to use to make it bigger. other then that I love this pack an 90% of the time it's my travel bag or carry on bag. great improvements with still room to grow (Posted on 10/16/2014)
Multi-purpose PACReview by Brian

I fly all over the place for work and am sick of buying backpacks from the office stores that eventually fail at the most in-opportune times (pulling down from an overhead on a plane or failures when I pick it up the "wrong" way) I load my bags pretty heavy). I have purchased a few things from Spec Ops and have always been pleased with the endurance and styling. I have been using my T.H.E. Wallet for a number of years now; it may need a washing but NOTHING has failed on it. I decided to pick up one of their PACs and was "eyeing" the original T.H.E. Pack. I saw that they had undated the design and decided on the UAP. Once I got the pack I was reminded how well Spec Ops gear was constructed and I liked the versatility of the MOLL E. The Cordura is still as thick and robust as I remembered when I got my wallet (and other stuff) and the yellow interior made it easier to find stuff when I unzipped it in the overhead on the plane. I have already used the pack and it did very well resisting the bangs, bumps and drags of jet set travel. Tough bag/Pack and tons of space.Thumbs UP guys!
Incidentally, I have all of my bug out gear in the trunk of the car if I need it (and can make it back to my city/car in one piece) so I can switch out all of my "normal life gear" to bug out mode to the UAP : ) (Posted on 1/17/2014)
Not better than the originalReview by Robert

I have used the original pack for many years and come to like a lot. However it is really just a bit too small. The new one does not improve on the old design. In fact it repeats the major flaw and that is the compression straps crush ANYTHING placed in the two pouches. It is a fine carry-on bag and have received many compliments but as a 3 day bag it is not adequate. It should be 4 inches taller and 2 inches deeper. The should be a lap-top sleeve that does not have to share space with the bag stiffener. And the bag stiffener for the old THE does not fit the new THE.
I have used the old THE bag in Iraq since 2006 and I purchased the new THE in August and used it once and sent it home to sell on EBAY. I am currently in Helmand Valley and use the 511 Rush 72 and find that to be the perfect sized bag despite it's minor flaws. (Posted on 12/25/2013)

I reviewd many other packs including Eberlestock, KIfaru and Mystery Ranch. The best value was between the Spec-ops UAP and Eberlestock X3 lodrag. The UAP won hands down. Best of all, it's made in the USA, where the Eberlestock is not. (Posted on 12/23/2013)

Like all of SPEC-OP's brands this is outstanding workmanship, and quality. When the GI Issue stuff falls apart, SPEC-OPs stuff barely looks scuffed up. I still have the pack and ammo pouches I bought in Iraq in 03, besides being a little faded, still going strong. (Posted on 12/19/2013)

I purchased the T.H.E. U.A.P. on a whim after reading a lot of the reviews, but what surprised me was the heft of the bag. I didn't expect it to be this heavy for an empty bag, but the heft goes a long way toward what makes the bag so great, you're probably not going to be able to destroy this bag short of shooting it or catching it on fire. I can see this being a tremendous advantage for a 3 day bag, especially with the optional frame. This will probably be my go to bag in the future for anything short of a week long camping trip. Now to get accessories to make it better. (Posted on 12/6/2013)

Purchased fall of 04, for $100 in the Green Zone Exchange
Carried ammo, magazines, spare weapons.
Wasn't that excited about the water bladder option, didn't seem to carry right.
Use it for a range bag & travel bag now, its good for 2 or three day supply of clothes, reading material, and misc.
OUTSTANDING PRODUCT, may have to get another 1 or 2 to set up as "Bail Out Bags" for vehicles.

Good, but no reason to upgrade from THEReview by Darrel
Price
Value

Bought this on a limb, because I had a lot of money in my pockets, even though I've had a THE for many years, and was in no hurry to replace it. This will be a small history of the THE pack, with some thoughts on the UAP, and how it stacks up to other packs in this price range.

Some of the inherent flaws of the THE have more to do with the fact that it's aging. I think the THE has been in the hands of Marines since at least 2001, and I've seen some truly ancient ones on the backs of salty Master Sergeants and CWOs, with old black buckles and olive-drab looking Coyote material, back when they didn't even solution dye the Cordura. The design has not changed a bit since then, besides the buckles, which are a huge improvement, although possibly a little too long. For this price range, you could put cobra buckles on the pack though.

Many things have changed for the people who carry these packs on field ops, and possibly on deployment. Camelbaks were not issued when this packed rolled out of the shop, and although it accommodates them, it does not offer anything significant to keep them in place, like a hanger, or a segregated pocket. Packs are often worn on top of body armor these days, and the sternum strap sits way too high to be actually useful, and the buckle is cumbersome and gets caught under the straps, making for an uncomfortable and ungraceful donning. Neither of these flaws were corrected.

There is no Molle on the inside of the pack. I understand that it's hard to do this, especially with the yellow nylon interior, but almost every other pack in this price range offers some sort of internal organization, whether that be a zippered divider, or molle, or elastic brimmed pockets. There's no customization with the straps either. To secure a water tube, or comms gear, you have to just stick it under the middle piece of webbing, which is a huge annoyance.

The webbing on the side is the only place where it actually makes sense, and they added enough to make it slightly more usable, which is nice. Webbing on the pouches is just a waste of time, as anyone who knows what they're doing wouldn't even bother throwing off the natural dynamic of the pack with pouches. The THE had absolutely no Velcro, because no one used velcro seriously before the army implemented ACU patches, and then it exploded. I think the velcro on the top pouch is a huge improvement, although I don't put anything but my flak patch on it.

The THE had a decent pad in the back, but it was just a slab of cordura, not contours or breathable pads like a lot of other packs. The UAP does not improve upon this at all, which is strange for this price range. The slot behind the pad is useless for anything besides documents or possibly a tablet, if you don't have anything else in the pack. The waist strap has not been improved either.

Right, so let me stop being so negative. This pack would be more than adequate for daily commuting, or a military everyday carry pack, which is what I use it for. It gets a lot of looks and questions, and I'm always proud to tell them that it's a Spec Ops product. However, given my long commitment to my THE pack, I wouldn't buy this again, I would just buy another THE. It doesn't offer anything spectacular, and is that weird size between small and large that makes it equally well suited for nothing. It's not ergonomic enough for a hiking pack, and too large for an out-in-town pack.

Spec Ops, you have an enormously loyal customer base with the Marines, trust me. With products like this though, it makes me wonder who you're making things for. Civilians, or us, the "american warfighter". I know you like to get suggestions for new products, and I was one of the people who emailed you about bringing back the recon ruck, so I'll have to shoot an email about some more ideas I have.

Old style THE was better. In my opinion for my use.Review by rv

Why do you insist upon cinching the pockets??? The compression strap should only compress the main compartment. When you cinch down on the pockets you distort the molle pouch attached as well. Not to mention you crush any small items in the pockets. Dumb idea in the first THE pack too. The quality is good but the waist belt is pretty poor load carrier, and there is no mesh padding on the back to absorb sweat. It's also too small for a big bag or too big for a small bag.

What would be nice is zippered expansion similar to Sandpiper of California to give the pack an additional 2 inches of depth in the main section. The laptop sleeve is not well thought out. The laptop sleeve should have been on the front under the two pockets.

With a laptop in the sleeve, the pack is very uncomfortable to wear. I use this to schlepp my gear on helo or VF-22 to and I'm also pretty loaded down with gear. This will probably end up on ebay and I'll keep my older style THE pack.

What would also be helpfull is a 2-3" bottom pouch for shower shoes, laundry or other less sanitary items. At least half the folks getting on helos to some remote FOB ties their shower shoes to their packs as nobody is going to put them inside the main bag. (Posted on 10/18/2013)
good backpackReview by Dimitrios
Price
Value

I received this backpack yesterday, so my experience with it is limited, and my review might have to be amended in the future.

I ride a motorcycle to work, and I bought this backpack after seeing all these good reviews. I wanted something that would be bigger and sturdier than my previous bag. And oh man, this backpack is BIIIIG! It easily held all the items that I had in my other bag, I also put in there my brightline pilot bag (just the headset portion of it), and then there was room for more!!! That was quite impressive, I admit.

The bag seems to be sturdy enough and well made. One of my concerns were if it would be sitting to low on my waist, making it hard for me to ride on the motorcycle. I found out today that it did not. Actually I will probably have to loosen it up a little, just so I can let some of the weight sit on the seat, instead of having all that weight with the motorcycle vibrations hanging on my back.

The zippers are a little stiff to operate, I do not know if this is normal, or if they have to be lubed, or to be broken in.

I would prefer it if there were a few "convenient pockets" maybe on the straps, or on the sides of the bag, where you could just stuff small things, while having the backpack on. The backpack is customizable enough though, and I am hoping that soon I will have put all the accessories to fit my needs.

The buckles feel nice and sturdy, too. Compression straps seem to work fine and as they are supposed to, also.

I also bought the Vent panel, and I can't say that I am impressed with it, so far. It is not easy to put on, or take off, and unfortunately it blocks the opening of the "laptop" zipper, so you have to take at least one of the straps out of the Vent to be able to slide your laptop in and out from the side. Maybe the Vent is only meant to be put on during long hikes, and not for everyday use. Will see.

All in all, I am pretty happy and excited with my new bag. Unfortunately it is very expensive, and that cannot be ignored. When it comes to value for money, well,.. I think that it is maybe a little more expensive than what it should had been. (Posted on 10/15/2013)

Unmatched QualityReview by LoneStarMedic1510

I've had this pack for about a couple weeks now, and I love it.

Room for storage is endless. I was able to make this pack work with all of my medical supplies, TA-50 for Field Training Exercises, as well as school gear separately with room to spare. The hi-viz yellow interior is innovative and helps when you have little illumination to work with and artificial light is not an option in a 'tactical' environment.

MOLLE loops are a big plus for me, since this only adds to the storage and customization piece, also a bonus for innovation as they double-dipped with the velcro attachment (for morale patches and name tapes) as well as MOLLE loops on the top.

The battle buckles also work very well in getting the pack as tight as possible with minimal dead-space. The hydration bladder relocation is also great since a lot of other packs have them in the back, causing an awkward 'water hump'.

Only improves I would add is to the waist strap; additional padding would make it more comfortable for heavier loads, and it could be tucked away into the back-padding much like the SOC Bug Out Bag. (Posted on 10/2/2013)
Even Better Than I ImaginedReview by James

I spent several months looking for a military style pack. After searching for German or Russian/Soviet surplus for a heavy duty bag that was big enough to handle all of my school supplies and work things while not being "ruck sack big" a good friend of mine showed me the bag he took with him on deployment. After my interest was peaked in American made packs I took to youtube and forums looking for information. I repeatedly saw SpecOps pop up as some of the best gear money can buy. At this point I had never even heard of "MOLLE", let alone knew how versatile and customizable it was. I essentially knew nothing about modern military packs. But, I knew what I wanted in a bag and the T.H.E. pack seemed to fit the bill. After all, the multitude of people praising this bag couldn't be wrong. I went for a leap of faith and I could not be happier. I have not yet used my T.H.E. pack to its full potential, having only had it for a few weeks now, but the very first day I received it I crammed everything I could think of in it: every book and binder for school, my jacket and gloves for the cooler at work, hole punch, ruler, all my tech gear, my lunch, a couple of bottles of water, more books, everything I could think of. To my delight, there was even room to spare. I was astonished. I could go on about the phenomenal craftsmanship, the gorgeous design, or the versatility, but all you have to do is watch a review on youtube for that. What I will say is that, from a person who has no interest in camping, fishing, painballing, or any real outdoor activity, if you are looking for a backpack for ANY reason whatsoever, this pack is for you.

Short Version:

This pack is bulletproof and a great size for not only daily use but also time spent in the woods. The generous amounts of external molle can allow you to use this pack on short and long duration trips in the wilderness.

Long Version:

This pack is bullet proof with some great subtle features such as the compression straps cinching the entire bag down. This allows the bag to be used with smaller loads not flopping around. The removable waist belt is also great for day to day use where a belt is not often used.

I do have two additions I would like seen however.

First: a loop to clip keys to inside one of the front pouches to prevent them from getting lost with other gear.

Second: I am big fan of molle inside the main compartment of the pack. I prefer to be able to keep a first aid kit inside my pack without it sinking to the bottom for everyday use. A set of molle webbing inside the pack would not reduce space inside the pack and could greatly increase the ways in which customers can customize their gear.
