I purchased an sr25 for some adventures I have planned but when it arrived I was so impressed I just had to have the bolt as well. Will mostly be using it as a dad bag as it isn't saggy and fits all the necessities
Bolt 12 Day Pack V2
I received the Bolt 10 as a part of my MR40 kit and found it to be very interesting. When used as a part of the MR40 i carry the essentials in case i need to drop the big bag or just want a day pack. It fits the following in the main compartment without hassle : SOL escape bivi, USGI poncho, water filter kit (hydrapak 2l bladder & be free filter), shemagh, 450 ml TI cup, SK-5 knife, 20m cord, 6 x 400cal food bars.
In the outer upper pocket: fireant stove with 12 esbit tabs, water purification tabs, firesteel & knife sharpener.]
In the outer lower pocket: AMK steelhead first aid kit with added trauma dressing & gauze.
For me the only downside is it needs a chest strap so i easily fitted it myself. It really surprised me how much it fits in yet is tiny to wear ............ it truly is bigger on the inside. I like it so much, i have bought another as a grab and go bag for the car.
My Bolt 10 was purchased a couple of month ago and what a great pack it is, fantastic quality and workmanship, perfect for use on day hikes and also doubles as a computer bag (14inch) on interstate travels. I also purchased the full range of pouches to complement the Bolt 10, again great quality and work perfectly for segregating items such as small first aid kit and food bars etc.
The ordering and follow up from HRO was great, items received as advised with great detail on use and care.
This is my second purchase from HRO, I purchased a Man Bag 2 years ago and it has proven to be a great buy, still looking as good as the day I purchased it, even after much hard use. I am sure it wont be my last purchase.
A fantastic simple little day pack. Very lightweight and just a simple practical design make this a great item. Mine has found its place as a grab bag/GHB for the car.
