"We introduce McMillan Tactical Gear by Eberlestock
with the launch of what many will
see as the ultimate scout/sniper pack, the M3
Operator. It represents everything that Eberlestock
has learned about the needs of the professional
military sniper community. It is a true go-to-war
pack, derived from the lessons learned from our
Phantom and Gunslinger products, and augmented with
the first-hand knowledge of the Navy SEAL who is at
the helm of McMillan Tactical. Together, we think
we're going to rock some boats with gear that the
free world's warriors desperately need. Have we
succeeded? We invite you to be the judge."
Excerpt from Eberlestock Factory website.
The Eberlestock M3 Operator is a
behind-the-torso pack, and places the weight of your
weapon right along your center-of-gravity.
When shooting from
the pack, you have direct access to all of the
pockets. The side pockets peel back to expose
PALS-type webbing that can be used to mount ammo or
The Operator has
elements similar to other Eberlestock packs. Its
layout is much like the
but it's bigger and has a two-chamber main
compartment, plus the outer front pockets. Like the
Operator's pack bag and Backscabbard™ are sewn
integrally together. They built the pack to
satisfy the reality that a classic "drag bag" is
rarely likely to be used by a modern military scout
or sniper, and we gain some benefits of simplicity
and weight savings by integrating the whole package
into a single unit.
We do not believe you have to
be gearing up for a Swat Mission or to be Deployed to
appreciate the quality and utilitarian use of the M3
Operator. The M3 Operator makes a perfect backpack for
Hunting, Camping or the ultimate Bug out Bag.
