    Concealed carry backpack?

    Hello all, I was wondering if theres a backpack out there with a false bottom, something I could carry my pistol in, and if anyone looked inside of my bag would not be able to tell. Thanks for any help.

    Here's one

    Check out this one. It only has one strap, but I think it may work.

    Camelbak, Condor, and I think Voodoo Tactical all make backpacks with side zipper compartments where you can hide a gun.

    Maxpedition Sitka. It has a compartment that has hook and loop which can accept a pistol. It also swings around to your front with the openings up so you can easily access you firearm. Just lock the zipper to the compartment when you are not carrying. I have tried a good many bags, this is the perfect travel briefcase for casual and business for me with the ability to carry a firearm and extra magazines.

    I have a 511 Moab 10 and enjoy it. Great for dragging stuff to and from work and small outdoors treks about the city and the woods... When my G19 is inside the hidden pouch you would never know. Only drawback is it isn't "covert" and its obv a tactical bag... Nonetheless I love mine

    I sometimes carry in an Ogia backpack, just a normal Metro model that has access at the back for a laptop or some such item. The pocket has a dip at the bottom so something in there is secure, and I can easily slip my hand in and retrieve the weapon if I need it. The gun is in a Remore holster when it's in there, so no slip and protection for the trigger.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    Can't see the need for a gun that needs to be concealed from someone searching or looking into the backpack, if you are legally carrying concealed.

    I'd prefer to carry in a bag. If I come home an drop it on the counter an kids come up an look inside of the bag.. or Im riding around with a new gf, girls are curious ( people in general ) are curious, an she decide's to look in the bag, people naturally get freaked out by the sight of a gun.

    I'm not scolding or arguing, but if your gonna' conceal a handgun I wouldn't count on a "secret compartment" in ANY backpack to halt (or even slow down) the curiosity of kids or a new girlfriend. It's gonna' "clunk" against the counter either way. Keep it ON your person & tell 'em hands off.

    Concealed carry backpack?

    I carry the maxpedition messenger type bag. I can carry everything I need in it including lunch and a camera if need be. They have a area for your CC gun as well. I ussaly carry my 19 there and still wear my 26 IWB. The bag works very well and gets a lot of use to carry jackets, gloves etc that I may take off and on during the day.

    I carry a versipack with a Glock 17 and some mags. I carry an LCP or J frame in my pocket. Bag gets locked at work when I arrive and at home too at the end of the days.

    You have a responsibility as a gun owner to insure that your guns are secure and remain in your control at all times. Leaving your gun unattended and readily accessible to anyone who might find it and handle it is extremely irresponsible. Please, for the safety of others, reconsider your intended carry method and instead choose a method which will keep your firearm secure and in your possession at all times.

    By the way, welcome to the forum. Please be safe.

    Amen! There is nothing wrong with using a backpack to carry very important items, but keep it in your possession at all times, and try to have your primary weapon on your person. (The original post makes it seem that the intention might be to leave the backpack unattended.)


    Thewilderness.com and Kifaru.com both sell gun-carrying solutions designed to attach to backpack systems, named the Safepacker and Koala, respectively. The Safepacker, with which I have long experience, can also be used as a belt carry method, or can be toted by itself.

    As for simply bringing along an extra handgun, I have used a pistol case, or simply wrapped the pistol in a large rag, and stashed it in a backpack.

    If you want to hide a gun in a backpack, wrap it in dirty laundry - or a towel...

    Anyone touching a backpack with a gun in it will notice that it doesn't feel like an empty backpack....it feels like a backpack with a heavy metal object in it.
