Grey Ghost Gear recently announced a new EDC backpack: the IMPACT. That’s neat, but GGG has a wide range of packs and bags available already – and for every conceivable market, too. So why release a new one?
The answer, as we understand it, lies with the Grey Ghost Gear senior designer Stephen Crowe. He created the bag when commuting by bicycle every day.
The IMPACT 24’s creator explains,
“I needed a more vertical backpack with a specific pocket configuration that I had not seen yet in any of our existing bags. I kept experimenting with tiered exterior pockets for all the essentials I needed in an average 24-hour period like my phone, wallet & keys, etc.… along with space for bike tools, patch kit and an extra tube in case of a flat. Most importantly, I wanted to truncate the main compartment in favor of a third exterior pocket at the bottom with maximum depth.”
He says while that area was originally intended to house premade meals that bottom pocket “…is spacious enough for cameras, small drones and other sensitive items that would otherwise get crushed if tossed into the main compartment with other items.”
Some additional explanation is provided on the GG website:
The exterior of the Impact 24 has four strings of daisy chain loops that line the left and right sides and parallel the front pockets. Daisy chains are your friend, especially if you ever need to clip or lash extra gear to your pack using carabiners, webbing straps or cordage. You can hang almost anything from a backpack using a system like this, from solar power chargers to a wet coat or a tarp. Finally, a worthy host for your novelty carabiner collection!
The back of the Impact 24 has thick mesh-lined padding to ensure for a comfortable all-day ride without the infamous sweat stain down your back. The mesh encourages ample airflow to the back as well as the underside of the adjustable shoulder straps, making the Impact 24 a favorite daily commuter.
The Impact 24 backpack is available now on GGG’s website in Black/Black Diamond, Wolf Grey/Black Diamond and Olive/Black Diamond color combinations.
