Vanquest Debuts New Gear @ 2018 SHOT Show (New & Upgraded Backpacks, Plus Updated Organizers)


Las Vegas, NV: Vanquest introduces FIVE new backpacks: MARKHOR-45, IBEX-35, IBEX-26, KATARA-16, SKYCAP-46 duffle backpack, and two new FTIM 2.0 Maximizers at 2018 SHOT Show.

In a new endeavor Vanquest has created the MARKHOR-45, a 45-liter backpack and our largest pack to date. The MARKHOR-45 is designed for ultimate comfort and utility. Offering adjustable shoulder yoke for perfect fit to varying torso lengths, it includes gear management straps (internal/external use), and reversible D.A.M (Durable Arms Management) beavertail with MOLLE-Air/shock cord panel.

Upgraded for 2018, the IBEX-35 and IBEX-26 raise the bar with more capacity and better organization. The 3D top pockets increase volume without stealing internal space. Both models have integrated MOLLE-Air panels in main compartment, while IBEX-35 has an all-new torso length adjustable suspension system.

The KATARA-16 backpack is a result of consumer feedback since 2014. Designed as a 16-liter EDC backpack, it is CCW-ready and converts to an ambidextrous VSlinger slingpack. Featuring padded, Hi-Vis interior with ample organization & space for laptops/tablets and hydration.

New to the Vanquest lineup is SKYCAP-46 duffle backpack. This 46-liter, travel-ready duffle converts into a backpack, making it the perfect travel companion. With dedicated laptop/tablet storage, an admin compartment with RFID-blocking feature, this bag is ready to hit the skies.


Last but not least: The FTIM (Fast Totally Integrated Maximizer) series of organizers, newly updated to FTIM-SLIM 2.0 and FTIM-HUSKY 2.0. Both include Spartan zipper pulls for smoother operation, a hook and loop field for ID/morale patches and external slip pocket. The inside is partially lined with Hi-Vis orange ripstop nylon and boasts 25+ pockets/slots for optimal gear organization.

While announced at SHOT Show, these new products will be available in Late Spring 2018. For more information on 2018 New Products, please contact Vanquest at
