Rugged construction and modular adaptability are the foundation of our FAST platform, helping you conquer the routine, the unexpected and everything in between. Combining the best of military design and mountaineering ergonomics, FAST Packs are built to be your trusted companion for adventures close to home or missions far away.
Strategically engineered for premium comfort, utility, and modularity, our nimble 1350 cubic inch FAST Pack Litespeed is a new generation of everyday carry. The Litespeed is built for minimalist daily carry but has been carefully engineered to adjust to end-user requirements and adapt to multiple mission profiles. Step into the new evolution of carry and harness the speed of light.
Strategically placed Pouch Attachment Ladder System (PALS) webbing is compatible with Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment (MOLLE) accessories so that you can customize the layout of your gear to suit your changing needs. Two-inch webbing underneath portions of the PALS webbing lets you attach wider items, such as Tek-Lok™ equipped sheaths and holsters. Our signature Transport Tail can be used to hold odd-sized items like a helmet, or released into the down position to hold linear items like rifles.
Made with a unique high pressure nitrogen gas solution process, aerated closed cell foam padding aids in superior shock protection and comfort. Polyester and nylon mesh aid in ventilation on the shoulder straps and back panel of the pack. The mesh also creates a softer surface to decrease wear and tear on your apparel. Engineered suspension geometry and a HDPE framesheet enable the pack to ride higher on your back. Load lifters allow the load to be pulled into the body for maximum comfort.
Anchor points on the exterior and interior of the pack enable you to continually adapt and evolve the pack configuration to your changing needs. Use our Control Panel 1 to create mission-specific loadouts and interchange them easily, or attach our FAST Transporter Tail internally to secure heavy items such as water bladders or ammunition against the frame for support.
A lightweight attachment system along the handle provides an easy way to attach bulky items such as a rope or jacket to the top of your pack for easy access. Incorporating 8 feet of removable paracord, it's also usable for other purposes in an emergency.
Removable compression straps at the base secure odd-sized items.
Made of MIL-SPEC Invista™ Cordura® fabric, a high tensile strength composite nylon thread and webbing that’s nearly impossible to rip or tear. Hypalon, the same material found on Zodiac boats, was used to reinforce critical stress points on the pack, such as the handle, shoulder strap connection points, and top exit port for the hydration tube.
Let me tell you about TAD backpacks. I have (and still use everyday, as my do everything bag) the first version of the Litespeed. It's now over 10 years old, and yeah... basically perfect shape. The hypalon rubber around the top handle is falling apart.. but the handle itself is completely fresh. I mean... I seriously think I could get another 10 years out of this bag and it would just shrug it off. It's kinda crazy. They won't win any lightweight contests... but if you don't want to... You'll never have to buy another backpack.
Just got my Kletterwerks Summit in "Brick" (a muted red). Love the old-school format and simplicity -- it's by no means over-designed. I expect it will get frequent use among my already-too-many bags (and that's before my Kickstarter orders for the Evergoods 24L CPL and Peak Designs Everyday Travel Bag arrive!)
Safety Tip -- I removed the leather Kletterwerks patch because I'm not a sewn-on branding guy, but found that the patch was covering two tiny holes in the fabric. Not a huge deal, but definitely a surprise.
Will also likely replace the leather zipper pulls -- not really a leather guy (no jokes, please).
As mentioned in another post, Mystery Ranch seems to have discontinued this model, so try retailers.
Well that’s a snappy little soldier of a bag, I rather like that one. Hey the gr1 is now $400! Know what’s great about that!? Spending $250 on some other bag feels down right frugal! “But Honey I saved $150 and Chase Loves it!!!”
I have SUCH a bag crush on that Kletterwerks bag - but I don't think they make it anymore (also means the more info link on bagworks.co doesn't work)! Can only find links to it from third party sellers. Damn it, I'm fiending for a full Chase Reeves review of that thing.
Velcro pad is for... "...papers, business papers?" patches, right? Right?
Although probably that's not incendiary enough XD
Anyway I now follow your trick on keeping the main compartment zipper pulls in one of the upper corners man! Now I can say "Bam! Bam!" too when pulling either of them pulls! Not to mention I realise now can just look over the shoulder to know if they're still there or someone behind has opened my backpack.
Hah, you made me spit up my Pho Noodo's at "off set it with a Merino Henley Western Rise". BTW you mentioned a while back you were going to do a clothing review. You really should try the SAXX - git'em at REI or Amazon. They are chonies or undies, or whatever you call them - not that I want to see an undie video from you necessarily. Anyway, they are the most comfortable I've ever had and awesome for travel and hold up well it seems. They feel better than all those other synthetics out there. Otherwise it's merino wool all the way. Am I off-topic?
I'm thinking a pro tip for manufacturers is...
"Send a sample in any other color but *black*."
A) It differentiates your bag from from every other black bag, which is *every other bag.*
B) It's easier to see details on the video.
Hey Chase. Really like you reviews, man, keep at it! One proposal for improvement - please add a bit of lighting for the table. You almost always show black bags and from some angles it is difficult to see what you are showing.
Dude, it's a rabbit hole I've spent the last God knows how many years going down. I'd like to say I've finally landed on everything I need in one case (Vanquest) but every time I watch one of your videos I'm always thinking 'Oh God, what new "always need you, never wanna see you" case is he going to use this time and am I going to have to buy one...I didn't need any more bags until I found your channel...keep up the incredible work!
I almost got it around fathers day, they were having like 25% off, awesome deal. But i felt like it needed the Trainsport Tail for me to get the most use out of it, and it's never in stock :(. Ended up going with SG Avail 2200. Another great US made pack that's a bit similar.
I run this bag as my EDC. The aesthetics is perfect if you like the tactical look, and the possibilities are endless if you are into modding your gear. But this bag requires alot of work to dial in and it is way too easy to go overboard with pouches. I hope the next iteration can be a full clamshell with 500D cordura instead of 1000D and laser-cut molle for a reduced weight and easier access.
