TRIDENT-31 New Features: (1) Padded waist belt with Pull-Forward adjustment (2) Hypalon MOLLE-Air attachment panels on both sides. (3) Suitable for carrying professional camera system, with a side collapsible water-bottle / tripod holder (4) improved shoulder strap and back panel for comfortable carry (5) Fits most 17" laptops inside main compartment.

TRIDENT-31 backpack is the big brother of our very popular TRIDENT-20™ backpack in a larger, more versatile form. You wear it like a backpack, with the option of quick-access from the side, just like a sling pack.

The new TRIDENT-31 is 31 liters in total capacity (10 liters larger than the TRIDENT-20), with improved shoulder straps, extra back panel padding and a removable, padded waist belt with pull-forward adjustment. You can now comfortably carry more gear and heavier loads.

Padded main compartment and four dividers provide extra protection for your EDC (everyday carry) items, photography gear, or range gear and a dedicated laptop sleeve that can hold a 17" laptop. You can access the interior from top or left side, and like a sling pack, you can quickly get to your gear by swinging the backpack to your front. Total 44 pockets and slots to organize your gear.

Durable, laser-cut Hypalon MOLLE-Air panels are found on either side of the pack. An expandable collapsible side water-bottle pocket can also support a tripod when used with the included elastic tie down point.

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 6 liters of water at once. Hydration hoses 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-Black) coated in DuPont® Teflon®, ITW/Duraflex hardware, and lockable YKK® zippers, TRIDENT-31 is a day pack ready to handle any tough situation.

    Trident 31

    Posted by Phil on 8th Sep 2018

    Size is good. Zippers suck for a bag at this price. Have a 4 year old Katana sling pack that is way better made. Shop around.

    I'm at a loss for words but.....

    Posted by Tyler Mac on 7th Apr 2018

    The pack from the outside is big, plenty of molle, plenty of easily accessible zippers with awesome zipper handles.
    Space with more space and more space. Organization stacked on more organization. I love it and have recommended this pack to others at my command to carry this because we are cleared to carry these in coyote.

    I was worried it was going to be huge. It is not a massive bag and has a lot of features.

    Perfect Pack

    Posted by Matthew B on 4th Feb 2018

    I have been searching for the perfect EDC/ travel/ hitting the trail pack for years. This pack has satisfied all my needs. It is a bit large, but fits my 5-9/ 190 lb frame pretty well. There are fit adjustment pulls on the top of the shoulder straps to insure a tight fit. The hip belt is robust and removable. It has pockets inside pockets and pockets in those pockets! The velco dividers for the main compartment are the perfect way for an OCD packer like myself keep everything where it needs to be. It's a really great bag, well made and sturdy. The zippers are a bit stiff/ difficult to close. A little zip lube (yes, it's a thing) will take care of that no problemo. Despite the steep cost, this is an investment that will pay dividends in the form of a great, reliable and cool looking pack for years. Also the zip up when not in use water bottle pocket is a tremendous innovation.

    Great bag, well built and original.

    Vanquest would of had the best bag design ever created if they only made the main compartment and front organizer clam shell instead of opening half way on one side. Makes some pockets hard to access when bag is loaded out.

    EDC for NYC

    Posted by MATTHEW BRODER on 28th Jan 2018

    I am a fully-admitted gear head. I am always looking to find the best way to haul my EDC through the subway tunnels and tourist-choked streets of the bad city. ALSO, I need a bag that is just as good on the trail. After receiving my Trident 31 I knew my long search is finally over. Read the other reviews posted to get the details of all this bag offers. It's a 100% winner. My only tiny critical comment is that the zippers are a little tough. But any legit gear guy has zipper lube close at hand so a quick application and BANG you are good to go!

    Love love love it

    This is my 3rd Vanquest bag so it's just what I expected. Big brother to my Trident 20. My 17" laptop fits in this one so much better. The zipper pulls are much nicer on this one as well. The side pocket's zipper and pull cord help store and secure different size items. I use this pocket for my phone alot but it would work with a bottle and they say a tripod. This is now my EDC.

    Your new EDC bag...

    Posted by Scott on 1st Jun 2017

    I am in awe of how much stuff this actually carries. I had a falcon 2, and I thought that was the best that was out there. I watched a review on the trident 31 first, I was extremely impressed, no wasted space, every space serves a purpose and either has molle or some type of beautiful organization. I figured this bag would be yeah, not even close and now I have to buy more stuff to fill it construction is amazing 15.9 laptop fits with ease. I did fill the bag up with stuff and packed some t-shirts in there as well to take up extra space. I was very impressed that I had it jam packed and the zippers closed with ease and I carried around for over an hour, it was extremely comfortable and no discomfort what so ever. Through all of the different bags I have purchased in the past, this is the first time I feel like I really got my money's worth. Thank you very much vanquest!!
