TAD FAST 背包实测: Triple Aught Design FAST Pack EDC

 ZORRO  11  5072

This is not a road test. Oh no, sir. It would have been a road test for any pouch or wallet. It could have been a road test for a messenger or daypack. It might have been a road test for a trekking pack or for travel luggage. But we’ve only had it for two months. There’s no way this is a serious road test for the Triple Aught Design FAST Pack EDC. However, instead of letting you guys wait for five years, let’s go!

偶,抱歉先生们,这不是一次实测。以前可能有过关于附包或钱包的实测。现在本来应该有关于邮差包或小背包的实测。以后也可能会有关于徒步背包或旅行箱的实测。但我们刚刚拥有它(TAD FAST)两个月而已。这不可能是一篇关于TAD EDC 快反 背包的认认真真的实测。不过,为了不让各位等上五年,让我们上吧!

Luckily, we’re not the first guys to review the FAST Pack EDC. You can find others herehereherehere and here, including a twenty-minute long video on YouTube, which even compares different versions of the FAST Pack EDC (which has been running for its fifth season now).

幸运的是,我们不是为EDC 快反 背包写评论的第一人。你可以在这里、这里、这里和这里找到其他的评测文,包括一个二十分钟长,甚至对不同版本的EDC 快反 背包进行了详细对比的YOUTUBE视频(已经使用了第五个季度了。)

 

About TAD

关于TAD

A word about Triple Aught Design. TAD is a boutique shop making tactical oriented clothing and equipment. Along with apparel and supercool knives and lights, they’ve designed two backpacks: the FAST Pack EDC and the FAST Pack Litespeed, the latter being a bit smaller (20 liters) and reviewed by none other than our own Taylor Welden!

三角设计公司的简称。TAD是一家制造战术向的服装和装备的时尚精品店。除了服装和超酷的刀具、灯具之外,他们还设计了两个包具:FAST EDC和FAST 简化版,后者更加小一些(20升容量),点击这里可以看到Taylor Welden写的有关FAST简化版的评测。(下面两段为赠品广告等,巴拉巴拉…)

[drum rolls] The kind crew at TAD are organizing a giveaway for the FAST Pack EDC, so read this review all the way to the bottom for your chance to win your own!

Note: One thing TAD is (unfortunately) well known for is that their products are sold out really quickly. To obtain one of the knives you even have to enter a draw to be able to buy it…no lack of popularity…so throw your hat in the ring.

Who it suits

它适合谁

The FAST Pack EDC is an 1800 cu in / 31 liter backpack with a lot of configuration possibilities. When the pack came out of the box it was sent in, our first impression was “Whoa, that’s a lot of webbing…”.

EDC 快反 背包是一个1800立方英寸/41升,拥有多种组合可能的背包。开箱后它给我们的第一感觉是:“哇偶,好多的织带…”

This pack means business and it shows in all kinds of ways. Apart from durability, high-quality materials and that “gosh, I need to not get in the way of that cool dude with the bag right there ’cause I will seriously get my ass kicked” look, the FAST Pack EDC is very, very modular. The volume is sufficient enough for you to haul almost anything. The pack itself is much like other bags with one main compartment with one interior pouch, two front compartments and two side pockets, and a separate compartment for a laptop or hydration bag. But with the added webbing and the transporter tail you can attach climbing stuff, helmets, extra pouches or any gear that will not fit into a normal compartment. The straps are highly configurable and can be detached with a click of the buckles.

这个背包当真展示出了多种多样的适用性。除了耐用性、高质量用料以及“天啊,我得小心不要妨碍到背着那个背包的酷酷的公子哥,不然我会被踢屁股”的看法之外,快反 EDC背包是非常、非常模块化的。它的容量足以让你搬运任何东西。这个背包和其他背包一样拥有一个主袋,内部有一个小分隔,前部有两个分隔,侧面有两个侧袋,以及一个可用于放入笔记本电脑或水袋的可分离的分隔。但是由于包上多出的织带以及运输尾板,你可以在外部加装攀登用具、头盔、附包或其他任何不适合放入普通背包分隔的装备。背包带都是高度可配置的,可以通过插扣进行分离。

So if you’re looking for a high-quality (tactical) backpack with lots of configuration possibilities, you’ve found it.

因此如果你正在寻找一个高质量的、拥有多种组合可能性的(战术)背包,那么你找到了。

Who it doesn’t suit

它不适合谁

There’s a price to be paid for all that configurability: added weight and straps that get in the way. And then there’s the price to be paid ($325) obviously. I found myself not knowing what to do with the transporter tail but not wanting to take it off because more straps could get in the way.

获得那些可配置性是需要付出代价的:增加的重量和织带是一种阻碍。很明显还有一个代价是需要付325美元。我发现自己不知道该拿那块运输尾板怎么办,但又不打算把它拆掉,因为这样会有更多的织带成为障碍。

If you need a bag for just one or two use cases or every gram counts, look further afield; however, you might need some time to find something of the same build quality.

如果你只需要仅有一或两个功能块、每一克重量都要计算在内的背包,你恐怕要看长远一点。不管怎样,你也许需要一些时间去找到具有相同制造质量的同类背包。

Looks

外观

The webbing obviously gives the FAST Pack EDC a military/tactical look. Still, the overall size and fit of the pack keep it below the radar, especially in black. With a depth of 7″/17.78 cm, the pack is never bulky, even with the transporter tail.

很明显织带给予了EDC 快反 背包一个军用/战术背包的造型。但合适的整体大小,特别是黑色的外观保证了背包不引人注目。由于厚度为7英寸/17.78厘米,背包并不显得庞大,即使是带有那块运输尾板。

 

Construction

构造

Here are some keywords: Cordura 1000, ITW Nexus buckles, YKK zippers, military grade stitching and webbing. The overall feel of the bag is very robust. The only thing we came across is that the bottom could have been a bit more reinforced. Although we’ve seen some reviews, we’d be interested in user stories from people who have longer experience with the FAST Pack series.

这里有几个关键词:考杜拉1000,ITW NEXUS插扣,YKK拉链,军用级缝制和织带。背包给人的整体感觉是粗壮结实。我们偶然发现的唯一一处(可改进的地方)是底部可以再加固些。尽管我们看过不少的评价,但我们还是对来自那些对于FAST系列背包拥有更长使用经验的人的使用体验很感兴趣。

Materials

材质

The pack is constructed out of 1000 denier Invista Cordura fabric with a Hypalon-reinforced top handle and removable T6061 aluminium back panel frame.

背包是由海霸龙(杜邦)防刮涂层处理过的1000D英威达考杜拉织物制造,拥有一个由T6061铝制成的可拆卸背架。

Hardware

硬件

The pack incorporates the likes of ITW Nexus SR Dual Adjust buckles and YKK #8 and #10 nylon coil reverse zippers.

背包上包含了ITW NEXUS SR双向调节插扣以及反向缝制的YKK8号和10号线圈尼龙拉链。

Features

产品特性

While most of the FAST Pack EDC is “proven design”, some aspects are rather unique and innovative. First, there’s the shoulder straps, which can be configured in all sorts of ways and even taken off. TAD provides a lot of Velcro straps to secure any loose straps; I haven’t seen it before in other packs, it’s a simple measure but it makes sense.

虽然EDC 快反 背包上使用的大多数是“已有设计”,但一些方面还是相当独特和标新立异的。首先,它有着可用多种方式进行配置甚至是脱下的肩带。TAD提供了许多维可牢魔术贴条用来固定过长的织带;我没有在其他的背包是看到过这种方式,简单而有效。

And then there’s the flashlight cave – a pocket on the bottom of one of the side pockets, that makes it possible to easily access a flashlight or other item using agear retractor.

其次它有手电槽——在一个侧袋底部的一个口袋,它能使你快速地取用手电或者是利用装备牵引器(装备挂绳)来固定的其他装备。

Space

At 31 liters, the FAST Pack EDC is definitely not the biggest backpack out there. Within that context, the size is still right for a day trip where you need to carry some gear or a multiday trip packing light. The main compartment is roomy, although not bulky.

对于31升的容量而言,EDC 快反 背包绝对不是市场上这个容积下最大的背包。基于这个背景下,这个大小适合于一日出行所需的装备携带或是数日出行所需的轻装打包。主包很宽敞,但是并不庞大。

Pockets and organising

分隔与整理

The pockets on the FAST Pack EDC are just right. We found ourselves having an item that needed to be stashed and it was drawn magically to the right pocket: front and side pockets for quick access, main compartment and inner pocket for regulars. The only drawback is the lower front pocket, which cannot easily be accessed if the “transporter tail” is in use.

EDC快反背包的分隔设计绝佳。我们发现我们能将一件储存在背包里的物品有如变魔术一般从正确的分隔口袋里取出来:前部口袋和侧袋用于快速取放,主分隔与内袋用于常规的储存。唯一的缺点是前下口袋,如果运输尾板正在使用的话就无法从这里很好地取用物品。

The webbing makes for other pouches to be attached easily. The zippers are big and great, they open in a wink. There’s a back section for hydration (which also doubles as a laptop compartment if you want it to.

外部织带保证了能轻易加装其他的附包。拉链大而质量优越,一眨眼的功夫就能拉开。后部还有一个水袋分隔,同时也能作为笔记本电脑的分隔使用。

Then there’s the Transporter Tail, that can hold your not so average item. Heck, there’s even Fast Pack Friday on packconfig.tumblr.com which is dedicated to all kinds of configurations (including TAD’s Fast Pack Litespeed).

运输尾板能够装载那些外形不那么规则的物品。这里有一个专注于快反背包的各种装载配置(包括TAD快反背包简化版)的位于packconfig.tumblr.com上的帐号: Fast Pack Friday。

Comfort

舒适性

One of our first tests was an hour long hike with some 15 kgs in the pack. I was almost surprised when I wore the pack at first. It fit like a glove! I’m about 6 feet 1 and 80 kilograms and the sizing was just right. The shoulder straps can be varied in lots of ways: the straps at the bottom can be tightened or loosened, the straps on the top can be tightened or loosened, the distance between the pack and the straps can be adjusted and, if necessary, the straps can be detached. Having said that, my girlfriend tried it and for her the waist belt was much too large (and yes… I’m happy about that ;-)).

最初的一次测试我们在背包里装了15KG的东西并进行了一小时左右的徒步。当我发现我是第一个穿戴这个背包的人时感到很惊喜。它感觉就像一幅手套那般合手舒适。我大概六英尺1英寸高,80公斤重,背包的尺寸刚好合适。肩带能够以多种方式进行调节:肩带底部能勒紧或放松,肩带顶部能勒紧或放松,肩带与背包本体的距离能进行调节,如果需要的话,肩带也能从背包上分离开来。话虽如此,我的女朋友尝试了一下,发现对于她来说腰封过于巨大了(是的,没错…我对此感到很开心 ;-))

The bag itself is rather heavy at 72 oz /2.1 kgs, but when wearing it, the weight is divided evenly, the waist belt does its job and the form of the pack enables the contents to be vertically divided instead of horizontally, which gives it more stability. The top handle is reinforced with Hypalon and is as sturdy as top handles get.

背包本体重约72盎司/2.1公斤,但当背着它时,重量分配得很均衡,腰封的作用发挥得很好,背包能将容纳的重量从垂直方向上分配到水平方向上,并赋予更高的稳定性。顶部提手用氯磺化聚乙烯橡胶强化过,拥有它应具备的强度。

The straps and the back of the bag are padded. The straps at first give the impression of being rather thin, but once you feel them around your shoulders it becomes clear their form is adjusted to your body and less padding becomes necessary. What might get annoying is that the straps should be connected to straps on the front of the bag. This will improve carry comfort because the load can be closer to your back, but it means you have to disconnect the buckles every time you need to open the pack. Finally, the padding on the back has good ventilation.

背带和背包背部都带有内衬。肩带给人的第一印象是相当薄,但当你将它们挂上肩膀感受一下就会发现它能更好的进行调整以适应你的身体,因此较薄的内衬是必要的。有可能会烦人的一点是,背带是与背包前部的两条固定带相连接的,籍此将负重更靠近你的背部从而提高背负的舒适性,但这也意味着每当你需要打开背包主袋时都得去解开那两个搭扣。最后,背负处的内衬通风透气性能非常不错。

Weatherability

抗风雨性

For usability, the zippers are placed for direct access; that is, no flaps to cover them and no waterproof zippers. This has its effect on weatherproofness.

为了保证使用上的方便,拉链都是直接缝制在背包上的;这意味着没有罩片来盖着拉链,也就是说拉链并不是防水的。这会影响到背包对风雨的耐性。

We put the FAST Pack EDC in the Belgian rain for two hours, stuffed with towels. The towels came out moist, especially at the zipper sections and on the bottom because of the drainage holes.

我们将EDC快反背包塞满了毛巾,扔在比利时的雨中整整两个小时。拿出毛巾时它们是微湿的,尤其是靠近拉链和底部排水孔的部分。

This happens to almost any bag with direct access to zippers; you just need to address it by using either a rain shield on the outside or drybags on the inside.

这个现象会在所有采用了直接缝制拉链的背包上;你需要的处理是在背包外部使用防水罩,或在内部放进一个防水袋。

Alternatives to consider

需要考虑的选择

There’s a good range of high-quality alternatives in the “close to 30 liters tactical backpack”. We have the Arc’teryx Khard 30 which we’ve recently reviewed.

There’s the Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault pack and the well known 5.11 Tactical Rush 24.

Goruck has been mentioned on several sites as an alternative, but I wouldn’t really call a GR1 an alternative to the FAST Pack EDC. For one, it’s decidedly smaller (26 liters versus the FAST Pack EDC’s 31 liters, while the GR2 boasts 40 liters). Then, the added waistband and configurability of the FAST Pack EDC makes it suitable for different uses.

“30升左右容量的战术背包”有一个高质量的可选范围。最近我们评测过的始祖鸟Khard 30是一个。另外还有神秘农场3D攻击包,以及知名的511Tactical Rush 24。有人提到Goruck(一个美国本土战术背包品牌,http://https://www.goruck.com/Gear)有几种尺寸的背包能作为候选,但我不认为他们的GR1是EDC快反背包的可替代方案。第一,它毫无疑问更小(26升VS快闪背包的31升,而同时GR2声称容积有40升)。第二,EDC快反背包上多出的腰封和更高的可配置性使得它更加适合不用的用途需求。

Verdict

结论

TAD made a robust pack with a lot of options. In comparison to other tactical companies, who have lots of backpacks and years of experience, it’s amazing to see TAD has found the sweet spot with just two backpacks.

TAD制造了一个具有多种可选择性的结实的背包。与其他具有多年背包设计开发经验的战术公司相比,很惊喜地看到TAD仅仅通过两个背包就已经找到了背包设计的最佳点。

Although it can be useful in many situations, you might not need all the modularity the FAST Pack EDC has to offer. We’d welcome a “slick” version with a little less webbing, fewer straps and without the transporter tail.

尽管EDC快反背包能适用于多种情况,但你并不一定会需要它所提供的所有模块的功能。我们很欢迎另一个有着更少的织带和背带,没有运输尾板的更“灵活”的版本的出现。

And finally: yes TAD, you’re allowed to develop bigger bags as well!

并且最后,是的,TAD,你已经被允许去开发更大的背包了!
