TRIDENT-20 (Gen-2) Backpack (Premium Colors)

Item Code:
Shipping Weight:
4.00 LBS

Product Description

*Multicam-Black only Available*
TRIDENT-20 (Gen-2) improvements: (1) 0.5" wider to better fit a 15" laptop (MacBook Pro / Air). Total capacity = 1 liter larger, (2) low profile MOLLE-Air structure that's loop-covered for ID patches, (3) taller padded dividers, (4) improved shoulder straps with denser padding.

TRIDENT backpack is the natural evolution of the popular Javelin™ slingpack into a larger, more versatile backpack. You wear it like a backpack, with the option of quick-access from the side like a slingpack.

The new TRIDENT-20 (Gen-2) is 21 liters in total capacity (1 liter larger than the original TRIDENT), with improved shoulder straps, and a removable 2" waist strap. You can now comfortably carry more gear and heavier loads.

Padded main compartment and three dividers provide extra protection for your EDC (everyday carry) items, photography gear, or range gear. A dedicated laptop sleeve that can hold a 15" laptop (MacBook Pro / Air) in a slim cover. You can access the interior from top or left side, and like a slingpack, you can quickly get to your gear by swinging the backpack to your front. Total 34 pockets and slots to organize your gear.

High-visibility 210-D ripstop nylon interior helps you find things in low-light conditions. Dual hydration system (hydration/CCW compartment, and main compartment) let you carry up to 5 liters of water at once. Hydration hose can be anchored to the left or right shoulder strap.

Low profile MOLLE-Air structure is MOLLE-compatible, and loop-covered for ID patches. Many interior loop fields for CCW and internal organization.

With its genuine 1000-D mil-grade Cordura® fabric (500-D Cordura® on Multicam & Multicam-Black) coated in DuPont® Teflon®, ITW/Duraflex hardware, and lockable YKK® zippers, TRIDENT is a compact day pack ready to handle any tough situations.


FAQ: I have a JAVELIN Right-Shoulder slingpack, so is the TRIDENT backpack designed more for right- or left-shoulder-carry?

Answer: Both. TRIDENT is a double-shoulder backpack, so unlike a single-shoulder slingpack, you wear the TRIDENT backpack on both shoulders.

FAQ: TRIDENT’s main compartment opening is asymmetrical like the JAVELINs, so is it designed more for right- or left-handed users?

Answer: Both. TRIDENT is a double-shoulder backpack, and to access your gear, you can either (1) take the entire backpack off and go through your gear like any other backpack; or (2) swing the backpack to your front like a slingpack, and access the interior from the side zipper opening.

Because of TRIDENT’s asymmetrical design (zipper opening on top and left), you will have to first free your right shoulder, grip the grab handle on the bottom-left of the backpack with your left hand to shift the TRIDENT to your front. This motion will give you access to the backpack with its left zipper opening facing you (similar to our bestselling JAVELINs).

  1. BEST EDC 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2018

    i own two of these backpacks now and they are great every time i need a bag for travel or the gym these are the ones i grab,size is good and super well built. i do wish they would have an integrated water bottle holder but the hydra on the side works fine.

  2. Sweet upgrade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Mar 2018

    I recently purchased the Trident-20 gen 2 backpack to replace a Red Rock Assault pack which I was using for edc. Upon receiving the Tough Built pack by Vanquest, I was immediately impressed by the superior craftsmanship, fine attention to detail, and rugged construction. There was no doubt that I was replacing an inferior product (one that was disintegrating at multiple seams in less than a year’s time of carry) with a well-built, made-to-last, edc pack destined to join me on my everyday excursions. From commuting to work on a bicycle to a day at the range, the Trident 20 has been an upgrade to my edc year.

  3. Great bag so for 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2018

    I bought this bag to replace my javelin3.0 just need more room . Only had it couple weeks but it's nice . Plenty of room for my c.c.pistol and my lap top in the back I also use the main pocket for my lunch box to and from work . Works great only thing is that the shoulder straps ,my javelin had the nice thick padded straps and the 2"lower easy adjust strap. We'll have to wait and see how it holds up.

  4. Great Backpack 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2017

    Everything about this backpack is first rate. The material, the zippers, the layout, the comfort, the functionality and everything else if great. The black multi-cam is great looking and I could not be happier with my purchase.

  5. Very great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    Great backpack for outdoor activity. The color suit my taste and the dimension itself suit my need. Thanks vanquest team :)

  6. Awesome Big Brother Bag for my Javelin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2016

    I got this bag because my Laptop grew a couple inches. I went from a 13.1 HP Split to a 15.6 ASUS and it wouldn't fit in my Javelin 2.0. It's a snug fit in this Trident bag but it does what I need it to. The quality is excellent. I do wish the second largest zippered opening had the inner pockets turned 90 degrees for side access like my Javelin but it's no show stopper.

  7. Great pack but description little off 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

    This is a great backpack for the most part the description is right on the only exception I found was with the water bottle sleeve? The description and picture indicate a water bottle sleeve on the outside of the pack on the right, however it is no where close to the size of any water bottle I have tried. Maybe my pack was measured and stitched wrong but I was disappointed as I was looking forward to this option. Other than that great backpack.
