Five Blocks to the Subway – Spotlight on Gear Whores Anonymous ‘The Citadel’ Day Sack

Five Blocks to the Subway – Spotlight on Gear Whores Anonymous ‘The Citadel’ Day Sack

Good new deserves to be shared right, well – imagine my surprise to good friends Gear Whores Anonymous have been quietly working behind the scenes – albeit, for a few years now – on their take on the ‘day sack’.

Yup, after being designed, prototyped, and tested – drawing from their extensive years of experience, gear and kit knowledge they’ve produced a surely innovative, and exceptionally contemporary take on the venerable classic – the day sack – check it out below – whilst we’ve not got hands on with this, it’s clearly packed with features, defined by functionality whilst retaining that cool guy form.

As if GWA need any introduction, for those who haven’t heard – they’ve long been purveyors of cool, functional and practical kit. Utilizing years of real world experience testing and reviewing kit as well as offering a small few items for a good few years, alongside their extensive range of patches. It’s a natural evolution that in this instance they truly enter the pantheon of gear manufacturers not only in style but with assured confidence.

I’ll be looking forward to getting one of these to give an in depth review – S23

GWA’s ‘The Citadel’ Day Sack

Finally our long awaited Citadel pack has arrived. The Citadel has been a bag 7 years in the making with every detail painstakingly prototyped & fielded in order to ensure maximum functionality. All this over a 2 year period that has covered over 20,000 miles of road & air travel. Throughout the years we have used dozens of bags while never encountering one perfect design that incorporated everything we wanted in a bag. The Citadel combines all of our favorite & must have features into one bag. This making it our perfect EDC, travel & tactical use pack.
