Eagle Industries E & E Bag Review: Part 1

Eagle Industries recently introduced a new bag they have dubbed the Escape and Evasion Bag. It is not unlike the many other bug-out bags in theory. In execution however, Eagle has shown that their attention to detail is second to none.

The first thing that you notice is the lack of tactical-looking MOLLE attachment points that are common on other bug-out bags. Eagle designed the bag to be low profile enough to avoid arousing suspicion about the contents of the bag. Likewise, they included a MOLLE attachment panel on the bag, only it is hidden by a padded, zippered cover. The cover is generous enough to easily zip over three double AR magazine pouches. Eight columns of MOLLE loops make the panel spacious and versatile.

Behind the MOLLE panel is the man section of the bag.  It too is lined with MOLLE loops one three sides to allow customized organization of the interior of the bag. In terms of MOLLE loops, the section is eight columns by four columns. The side of the interior not covered by MOLLE loops is covered with the loop side of hook and loop fastener material. The bottom of the interior is padded and has a grommet for draining.

On the rear of the main interior section is a hidden handgun pocket. The top of the pocket is secured with hook and loop material.

On each side of the bag are fairly large elastic-mouthed pouches for carrying bulky items that don't fit easily into the interior, such as communication radios, water bottles, etc.

In terms of size, the bag packs a lot of carrying capacity into a small size. The exterior dimensions are roughly 18.5 inches wide (including pockets), 7 inches deep, and 11 inches tall. In comparison to the County Comm EOD bag, the Eagle E & E bag is noticeably larger, but not too much so.

The bag, as is typical of Eagle, is very high quality as evidenced by the stitching and design. It should withstand use and abuse for many years to come.
