Condor Backpacks: Top 3 Picks

Condor makes backpacks like no other manufacturer, so it made sense to start here with our quest for the perfect backpack for camping, walking and general outdoors or off grid activities.

Initially a camping goods producer, the company now plow most of their resources into their trusted rucksacks, helping everyone from hunters, law enforcement and the armed forces get on with their day job. But when the day job is done, you may also want to use your Condor backpack for recreation and travel.

As we shall see, some of these will comfortably transport your laptop and other gadgets, that you may well use at work as well as at play.

Whoever you are and whatever it is you want to do, there should be a Condor backpack that can pick up the slack and then transport it ably on your shoulders without it ever becoming a burden.

Because Condor backpacks are so versatile and come in so many sizes, they may be used by anyone and everyone, literally, from army personnel to boy scouts or busy moms wanting a buggy bag for diapers.

With these you should never have to unpack the whole thing, just to take one piece out. They have multiple side pockets, mesh pockets and easy access zippers that there is a place for everything and everything in its place, literally.

No matter how much kit you’re carrying, there’s a size to meet your needs, whatever that may be.

Condor Compact Assault Pack (Small)

Small Condor Compact Assault Pack

Essential Information

Bare bones of the Compact Assault Pack.

  • Dimensions: 18” x 10” x 10” 1362 cubic inches
  • Item Weight: 2 pounds
  • Shipping Weight: 2.5 pounds
  • Manufacturer: Condor
  • Model: Compact Assault Pack (Small)
  • Colors: Tan, Multi-Cam, Olive Drab, Black, Coyote Brown, ACU, Black, A. TACS
  • Promotional Price:[easyazon_infoblock align=”none” identifier=”B005NAQP56″ locale=”US” tag=”gocamp24-20″]


Further Details

Take a closer look at the specs.

  • Main Compartment: 18″ x 10″ x 5″1362 cubic  inches
  • Hydration Compatible for hydration systems
  • Second Compartment: 15” x 8” x 2”
  • Front Top Compartment: 4″ x 7″ x 2.5″.
  • Front Bottom Compartment 10” x 8” x 2.5”


Similar to the Three Day Assault Pack, but obviously, smaller, this is the most compact of the four selected backpacks. Its overall capacity is 1362 cubic inches, so it is not going to pack as much as the other bags do, but as long as you realize this, you should be fine.

Advertised as being best for a ‘day pack’ this should provide some clues as to what its intended usage is. Of course, you can use it as an overnight bag – a lot here depends on whether you’re the type to travel light or not. However, we would warn against temptation to pack this too tight, as this could result in breakage. Just treat it with respect and it should be just fine for daily use – whatever you decide to use it for.

Hydration pack compatible and with four major compartments, this should fit a smaller laptop, even if it’s not especially designed for it. Like the others, there’s enough zipper compartments to keep even the fussiest packer happy and it’s comfortable enough to have on for a couple of hours at a time, definitely. But we don’t necessarily recommend stuffing it to the gills and then going on a three day assault style mission – this little backpack is not the same as its bigger brother the Three Day Assault Pack – this one is really meant for lighter use.

On the other hand, for smaller, lighter individuals (petite women especially) this could be absolutely perfect.

Condor Medium Assault Pack

Condor Medium Assault Pack

Essential Information

First facts about this backpack.

  • Dimensions: 19″H x 12″W x 9″D 1846 cubic inches
  • Manufacturer: Condor
  • Model: Medium Assault Pack
  • Colors: Black, Coyote Tan, OD Green
  • Promotional Price: [easyazon_cta align=”none” identifier=”B007V98I7U” key=”small-light” locale=”US” tag=”camp24-20″]

Further Details

  • Compression Molded Back Panel
  • Double Zipper on all compartments for easy opening
  • Compressions Straps on external sides
  • Heavy weight webbing over entire pack
  • Handles: Heavy duty carry and drag handles

Laying neatly in between the Three Day Assault Pack and the baby of the piece, the Compact Assault Pack is the Medium Assault Pack.

Roughly comparable to the Venture Pack, this is in the same kind of ballpark to it size wise and capacity wise (you can actually fit a bit more into this one, but it is also a little cheaper).

Yes, it’s designed to take or at least will fit a hydration pack and like the others, the handles are built to last, whether you are carrying this on your shoulders or want to drag it along. With a molded back panel, this should make light of your burden, literally.

We think this is the ideal pick if you want to carry a bit more than just enough for one day or night, but don’t need to run to the lengths of the Three Day Assault Pack.

In other words, this option should suit most people the best for general usage. Be it camping or even just the day to day grind of the commute to work.

Whether your jungle is the urban one or the actual one, it should see you right in a variety of situations. Maybe just something that you’d keep in the car boot for emergencies, this is one versatile backpack that, if not over stuffed, should keep going for many moons.

Condor Backpacks – The Pick Of The Packs

No matter who you are, there is a Condor backpack out there for you. But the one you pick is an entirely personal choice depending on who you are and what you want to do with it.

If you’re a petite female, then you probably want to steer away from the Three Day Assault pack as it might overpower you. The Compact Assault pack might be better for lighter use. But equally, either the Venture Pack or the Assault Pack Medium might do the trick, should you need to haul around a bit more than just day kit.

However, anyone hell bent on serious camping, fishing or even military style use needs the Three Day Assault Pack in their life. Because it is the toughest, most reliable and portable out of all four in our line-up.

Additionally, this is the only one that has a whopping 3000+ cubic inches capacity and can carry so much in relative comfort.

So the Three Day Assault is our ultimate pick of the packs. ….But it is up to you to pick your battles wisely with it!
