PIG Runt Urban Pack
Introducing the "Prequel" to the PIG gRUNT Modular Pack, the PIG Runt Pack is finally hitting the streets to bridge the gap between your tacticool gear and your everyday items. Sporting a minimalist footprint designed around everyday gear, the PIG Runt will handle items such as an 11 Macbook Air (or similar) or a 10 x 12 Shooter Cut plate. The clean and simple tri-panel design takes cues from a military issue Special Operations pack that shares the same designer. Created as a black backpack, the PIG Runt Pack has contrasting center panel options in Multicam, Woodland and Grey.
The primary feature of the PIG Runt Pack is the padded electronics sleeve which will comfortably hold tablets and most of the new crop of small lightweight laptops, such as the Macbook Air 11". The electronics sleeve is lined with loop velcro to allow for the securing of a velcro holster for concealed carry. The interior front wall of the PIG Runt Pack features two mesh zippered pockets with high visibility backing to aid in the identification of contents. The PIG Runt Pack also allows for the addition of the Runt frame sheet for additional rigidity as needed. The large zippered pocket on the exterior face of the pack is large enough for a windbreaker or light rain jacket, and also features a secret stash pouch above the zipper.
The PIG Runt Pack also features two accessory pockets accessible by hook and loop closure flaps, that has elastic keepers for the organization of items such as pens, sharpies, chemlights, flashlights, cigars, etc... and each pocket can also hold a 20 rd M4 magazine. The exterior is also accented by a 3/4" webbing piece for securing carabiners or other items to the pack. The stretch elastic water bottle holders secure up to a 3/4 liter water bottle or everyday disposable water bottles, and features an easy to grip Hypalon pull tab for ease of insertion.
The back of the PIG Runt Pack features the signature PIG dual airflow pontoon design as pioneered on the original PIG Plate Carrier. The pontoons and the interior of the should straps are lined with Drilex that offers both good grip and quick drying capabilities. The carry handle is folded 3/4" webbing for a very clean look while maintaining a ton of stremf. The shoulder straps feature slots for the addition of the PIG Sternum Strap, and 3/4" ITW side release buckles for quick release capability. The loose ends of the strap feature elastic loops for excess webbing management. All metallic zipper pulls on the sliders have been replaced with double knotted paracord for a silenced pull tab. Finally, each PIG Runt Pack sports a black on black metallic PIG logo which is subdued on right panel clean and covert look.

Great bag just right for my EDC. Not too big not too small
This is, by far, the closest I have ever come to finding the perfect EDC bag, at least one that meets my very specific requirements. It is true that it is a small pack and folks should heed the reviews that it is on the small side, especially if you are inclined to carry some EDC items, workout clothes/shoes, and a lunch, as you will probably find yourself wanting. I've found I can fit all my EDC stuff and a book of pretty much any size without much trouble. In case folks have specific questions about the exterior pockets, my iPhone SE and a small Rite in the Rain fit perfectly, but you'd be hard pressed to fit anything larger (a small Moleskine was too wide to fit). Overall, the build seems impeccable, the fabric is pleasantly relaxed, it has amazingly smooth and easy opening zippers, and it's comfortable to wear. Price is a bit high, perhaps, but for me, in my situation, it was great value.
My initial thought was "this is a kids pack" but after a few weeks, it grew on me as a very well-made day pack. I'm able to pack a great many small survival items, and have a little room for storage. Pricey, but worth it.
Quality material/design. However, not quite what I was expecting. It's a little small especially if adding a hard plate (10x12) & other gear (eg: light jacket). And I'm not a big guy 5'8" 160lbs. I think I'll give it to my nephew to use as a school bag. More his size.
Well, in a nutshell, THIS PACK ROCKS. I use an 11" Macbook Air as described and the padded electronics sleeve is really well done. I'm really surprised at how useful such a small pack is, but I'm really most happy about the quality of this pack's construction. Better yet, it doesn't get any second looks at the local barista joint. I don't smoke weed, so I'm using the secret stash pocket for a spare micro USB drive. Well done PIG, another smart design that has improved my situation. I recommend it without reservation. Because SKD Return Policy.
I've been using this pack every day for almost a year and I'm really impressed with its quality! It's gone through some heavy abuse and has held up beautifully. I have an 11" computer so it's perfect for my needs. It's a smaller pack, but fits a surprising amount of stuff.
No complaints. Just smaller than expected.
