The original Dragon Egg backpack from Direct Action Gear was very popular. It appears they are out to one up themselves with some updates to the design. Here's the word we received.

Dragon Egg MKII Now Available

Direct Action gear’s ‘Dragon Egg®’ backpack has been one of the best sellers in the company’s so-called “Legacy Line”. But never being ones to sit on their laurels, the company recently announced an upgraded version.

The Dragon Egg MKII® is 25+ liter capacity backpack designed to fulfill the needs of an LE or military patrol pack, as well as serving the hunting, hiking or EDC user as well. The pack features two hydration bladder pockets – one in the main compartment and additional in the zipped back part. The rear pocket, thanks to a padded sleeve, can be used for safely carrying a multi-band radio, or a notebook, laptop or tablet PC (up to a 15’’ screen).

The MKII version also features redesigned side pockets that have been enlarged to better accommodate 1L Nalgene bottles. Another change to the side pockets is the removal of the zipper to expand them – they are now equipped with elastic for expansion.

Like all products in the Direct Action portfolio, the Dragon Egg MKII® is made from top-quality components – such as Cordura® fabrics, YKK® zippers, and Duraflex® buckles – and incorporates cutting-edge features like laser-cut PALS compatible panels. The Dragon Egg® also incorporates the patented Combat Vent System® – an innovative ventilation system that provides increased comfort for the user. Made of contoured foam pieces with multiple air channels encased in highly breathable mesh fabric, the Combat Vent System® keeps the pack off the back. This enhances air circulation preventing heat build-up and sweating, while the stiff foam ensures comfort and stability.
