Description / British Army Operational Travel Bag

The British Army Operational Travel Bag is the solution to the problem of deployments where you require a large amount of personal support equipment or gear. With enough room to carry several days worth of clothing, support equipment, and specialized gear this first rate all-black tactical bag belongs in everyone's equipment room, hunting cabin, or stocked with gear in the truck of your car.

With the capability of wearing this deployment bag as a backpack, you can dramatically increase the amount of weight you have in the bag. There are padded and fully adjustable shoulder straps and a unique Velcro attached set of pads that offer significant back support which will allow you to carry your heavy load much further and wear your pack for longer. If you have a smaller carrying load, you can store the shoulder straps under the Velcro pads and use the carry straps to tote your bug out bag in your hand instead of wearing it on your back.

Inside of the Operational Travel Bag you will find a huge main compartment that features a removable rigid bottom that provides additional support for when you are carrying large cargo loads. The space available is on the large to extra-large side, with nothing lacking that would require a soldier to carry an additional bag of gear for a deployment into the field. As an extra bonus there is a water proof storage pocket with a clear vinyl cover, perfect for putting your most important items where you may need to quickly retrieve them and need them in perfect condition. On the outside of the operational travel bag you'll find two zippered pockets on each end, and a Velcro covered space for putting an identification tag.

Great Bag
Review by Vince

I have used this bag on several occaisions transporting clothes and other items to and from the US as well as from place to place in the UK. Sturdy and well made. One of the rubber feet on the bottom came off, but made it as good as new with some Goop.
Great bag.

I have used this now several times and it is holding up well. Got it on sale and it was worth every penny. Almost all of my luggage is clearly military, due to many years active duty. This bag is fairly rugged but doesn’t look so military. Great find.
A tremendous asset for the traveler

Bought mine from Keepshooting one year ago, so I figured it would be time to give some feedback. This British travel bag is one of the best deals in luggage. The long interior compartment can fit bulky ski jackets, ski boots, thick fleeces, and all manner of awkwardly shaped items. The side pockets can fit running shoes, flip flops, or toiletry kits.

Mine had some storage dirt (washed off with a hose) and some repaired areas where a soldier had taken patches of cordura and glued/melted the material onto the bag. Over the course of a year, this bag has been manhandled onto airline luggage holds, skidded across ice, and bounced around the truck bed, with none the worse for wear. The black color keeps the bag fairly nondescript when moving thru foreign airports.

Now, the downsides. My only gripe with this bag is its awkwardness to carry over long distances with heavy loads. The bag comes with backpack straps, but I travel with a 3-day backpack most of the time, ruling out their use. The sheer size and bulk of the bag extends the center of gravity far outward from the body, making it a PITA to carry from one side of the airport to another.

Other than that, a terrific bag.
Poor Quality
Review by Aaron
Verified Buyer
Overall, this seemed like a great bag and I was very excited upon receiving it. After using it only a few times and having one of the straps tear out, that excitement turned to disappointment. It still seems like a decent product, but certainly not capable of any significant abuse. I specifically bought milsurp expecting more rugged construction, but I have been sorely disappointed.

i use it for frequent travel, holds all my luggage for 4 days! great pack for outdoors as well
When I received the bag, it came in used condition just as advertised, but, it was still very usable and in good shape.

Almost new

Great shape.Like it better than my US duffle. Only problem I had was heavy aftershave smell. A couple of washings took care of that.
Great Functionality + Comfort
Review by Charles
Verified Buyer
Received this bag in great condition as can be expected with a item that's surplus. There was a small set of repair patches and a damaged plastic liner inside. I tossed the liner and used the bag for travel. The bag was very comfortable on back and easy to convert at the bag check counter. Very happy to have this bag to use for the race season this year.
Used, but in great shape
Review by Todd
Verified Buyer
I've always been wary about ordering used surplus items sight unseen. Even after reading the previous reviews, I decided to take a chance on this one due to the price, and the fact that I have owned British military surplus items before and always found them to be of excellent quality. I am planning on using this in my vehicle to keep my emergency supplies organized, and I don't plan on hiking anywhere with it on my back, so it doesn't need to be in new condition, just serviceable. The bag I received is in great shape. It has two minor repair areas, that were very well done. Otherwise, no rips or tears, no thin spots, and all buckles and straps intact. For what I am planning on using this for, it is perfect. I am very happy with this purchase.
Review by Nikko

I just received this today thinking the pictured one looks good. Was expecting new but mine was pretty beat up. It had a decent amount of patchs on it. 2 on the bottom where the little non slip pads are supposed to be (they were missing) one big one covering the bottom pocket. A few just scattered around the bag. Sticky tape residue on one of the shoulder straps. Covered in dirt and dust. There was something smeared on the top of the bag just mashed into the fabric and dried. Over all not as great as I was hoping but it is surplus I suppose. It looks functional. Nifty idea for a bag.
