Great bag overall highly customizable with any molle type accessories. Needs to come with a some sort of hard divider inside though. Fabricated my own and it works well.
I really like the overall design of the bag. However, the cheap plastic shoulder strap clips snapped as I carried the bag with the shoulder strap. If that wasn't bad enough, the cheap plastic belt clip that secures the top of the bag broke also, and now that will not clip either.
After looking at other patrol bags this one was by far the best choich for me. I carry extra ammo,hand sanitizer,Storage clip board,pens,highlighters,note pads/notbooks,gloves,First Aid kit,CPR mask and paperwork in mine.I still have room left if I need it. It fastens securly to the seat by locking it in with the seat belt and utlizeing the head rest. I was tired of everything falling into the floorboard and being unorganized. This is the best bag on the market hands down and I am vary happy with my decision.
As a cop I've owned a lot of different patrol bags and I've never had one I liked until this one. This 511 bag is perfect because it attaches to the seat, easily folds up after shift, and is completely customizable. Instead of packing my gear into the pouches not designed for them, I can buy molle pouches for exactly what I need and set it up the way I like. I have a molle water bottle holder and iPhone case set up where I can reach them as well as my med kit, etc. I'd highly recommend this bag over other bags where you get what they give you without choices.
My only criticism is to make the main compartment of stiffer material. If not full it tends to collapse in a little, but not enough to be a real problem.
The best bag i have ever owned being a police officer. I have owned almost every bag out there and this one does it all! Worth the buy and you will be pleased. If your looking for the perfect bag for your patrol car this is THE ONE.
I use this bag exclusively in my patrol car to keep everything up front that I need on a daily basis. The bag is large enough to keep all of my paperwork and my clipboard secure as well as other various office accessories. Everything stays securely in place even under punishing circumstances. The lid that flips up to cover the seat and hold onto the headrest even has room for expansion slots if I need room for more items (and I do). This is exactly the bag I needed.
I love the size of the bag since it fits real well on my seat and still allows me to put my cooler in front of it. I wils it was made more ridgis. I have modified it to include a hard shell do it is eaier to put my clipboards and citation holder in it. I wish I could at some folders of most used reports to it.
If you use this bag in the way it was designed to be used, you can't fail. Now the question is, how many different uses can you find for it. I have used it a range bag, school bag, travel bag, brief case, lunch bag, etc., etc., etc. It is a great bag and highly configurable.
Over the past three years, I have used several different seat organizers, both hard and soft sided. This bag has blown them all away. I easily keeps everything that I need when on patrol. If the time comes that I need to change into a different patrol car, the bag quickly folds up and sets up extremely easily. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone. Thanks 5.11 for making another outstanding product!!!!
