This little pack is by far my favourite I own of my 4 bro packs I use it every single day out and about for any & everything it fits a massive amount of gear in it for its size it comfortable even as a bigger set guy & sinchs down to fit on my son at 8 years old it excels as a bushcraft pack and is extremely versatile and can be loaded in countless configurations or strapped to my mr40 for a go bag at camp highly recommend to anyone who is after a amazing little pack for every day and beyond
I’ve owned an original Bolt 10 for a couple of years now and have given it a true flogging over that time, while I do look after my gear, I’m not always gentle with it, as a Bushcraft and Survival skills practitioner I tend to end up in some odd places.
The build quality is outstanding! I have yet to see any signs of wear on the body or harness.
Capacity is great, for a small pack it’s like a Tardis once you start adding items.
I use this pack as a grab bag and light scout pack when out for a days wander through the bush and it holds everything I need to be reasonably comfortable in the bush, whether it’s business or pleasure this is the first bag I go for.
I highly recommend any products created by the team at HRO for hard use gear you can rely on.
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.
