Let’s Talk HackPacks

So today I thought maybe I would discuss hackpacks a bit. What’s a hackpack you ask? A hackpack is basically a backpack designed or setup specifically for your hacking equipment. There are certain elements we need to consider when choosing a hackpack.

  • Does it have enough space for all my equipment along with a bit of room to spare?
  • Is it designed for carrying a laptop or can I at least make it reliable for carrying a laptop?
  • Is there places for pens, paper, and other analog items along with my tech?
  • Is it waterproof or can it be made so?
  • Is it dependable, well  made, and easy to carry?
  • Is it easily travel ready?
  • As a plus does it have the ability to run a cable or wire outside the pack and still be relatively discreet?

This are the many things I consider when choosing a hackpack. I have been through several hackpacks over the years but I recently broke down and purchased one I have been drooling over for a long time now. I finally purchased a Everki laptop pack through Amazon and got a really good deal on it too I must admit. This is, however, a rather expensive hackpack to get so if you don’t have the cash to dish out on something like this there is absolutely nothing wrong with making one out of an ordinary backpack. (Go here to checkout what Everki has to offer www.everki.com) I especially like the one I purchased because of it’s design, the fact it is flight ready, and it doesn’t really look like a laptop pack.

It is pretty easy to find a decent pack to make into you hackpack now days too. With all the prepper goodies rolling around everywhere, nicely made black backpacks with a molly system are pretty inexpensive to purchase and easy to find. Just beware of cheaply made china knockoffs and be sure you get something worth the money you spend on it. Remember this is going to carry around a lot of expensive equipment for you so it needs to be well made and dependable.

Now with my hackpack all setup if I have a job to run off to or some sort of project I need to work on all I need to do is grab my hackpack and go. Everything in it stays charged, setup, and ready for action. Of course I keep one laptop which is a tad more expensive all setup in my home office, then I keep a smaller, lesser expensive laptop all setup in my pack. The one I use for my pack also converts into a tablet which can be rather handy at times depending on the situation. So I hope this article gave you some good ideas and a few things to think about.
