Note: This product description is identical to the TNT Bag because they share many similarities, however new features and changes have been
Dimensions and internal volume:
Overall dimensions are approximately 24" long x 13" tall x 10" deep. Bag body measures approximately 17.5" long x 12" tall x 6.5" deep, not including external pockets. Because of padding, subtract about 0.5” from those dimensions for the main compartment internal dimensions. Total bag volume is approximately 2,100 cu. in. (main compartment and external pockets). Dimensions are approximate because the bag is flexible and will conform to some larger items.
Features a dual zipper opening that runs along the top then down the sides: stopping at each Side Stash Pocket. A protective flap covers the zipper opening. The compartment opening is more towards the front of the bag instead of the middle which allows easier access to the contents. The offset zipper opening allows space for the FAC (details below). Main compartment will accommodate up to a 17” laptop. Approximate internal volume of 1,400 cu. in. Main compartment can accommodate most small sub machine guns. There are several built in internal organizers:
- Slot pockets: Four pockets are sewn onto the interior of the rear panel made of 420D Cordura of a contrasting color for easy visibility of stored items. When empty the slots collapse and fold flat, staying out of the way. Each pocket is 6” tall and designed to accommodate two 30 round standard capacity AR-15/M4/M16 magazines or one 20 round standard capacity .308 magazine. They will also take anything else of similar size such as flash bangs, radios, mobile phones, digital cameras, portable hard drives, etc. Each pocket features an external 1” wide elastic retention band that is sewn in the middle creating loops that can used to retain thinner items such as handgun magazines, flashlights, folding knives, multi-tools, etc.
- Mesh pockets: Sewn to the front panel are three mesh pockets with zippered openings. One measures 12" x 9" and the other two measure 6" x "”. The mesh pockets are sewn with a generous amount of spacing to allow for slight expansion when filled. When empty the pockets lay flat.
Protected main compartment:
About 2/3 of the sides, from each end of the zippered opening to the bottom, is padded. The entire bottom and back is padded. The front is not padded but instead features a full sized sheet of HDPE plastic stiffener that maintains the bags shape, supports the weight of a handgun, magazines, accessories, and protects the contents of the main compartment.
Frequent Access Compartment (FAC):
Sewn into the top panel of the TNT bag, the FAC features two internal dividers that create three compartments: two measuring 4" x 4" and one measuring 4" x 6". The larger compartment will accommodate most smart phones. Each of the smaller compartments will accommodate small items like keys, vehicle key fob, average 4" - 4.5" folding knife, average 4" - 4.5" multi-tool, small head lamp, business cards, ID cards, small mobile phones, etc.
Front organizer pockets:
Two 10" tall x 9" wide x 2" deep pockets with approximately 180 cu. in. of volume. Each features slightly different organization inside. Both have dual zipper openings that run ¾ of the way down on each side which allow the pockets to open outwards almost completely, but also preventing items from falling out unintentionally. All internal organizers are made of 420D Cordura of a contrasting color for easy visibility of stored items. Inside the front panel of each pocket are two staggered slot pockets. The taller pocket will fit two 30 round standard capacity AR-15/M4/M16 magazines side by side, the shorter one will fit two 20 round standard capacity .308 magazines. Looking at the front of the bag:
- Right pocket: Main slot pocket accommodates small tablets, notebooks, etc. Sewn to the front of that pocket is a small slot for business cards and similarly sized items, and next to that are three oversized pen loops.
- Left pocket: Two staggered slot pockets with elastic strap retention secured with Velcro. The slots on the back are flat. The pockets on the front are pleated and will expand to fit a mobile phone, flash bang, most standard capacity handgun magazines, and other items of similar size.
Hidden document pockets:
Underneath both Front Organizer Pockets is a hidden secret/concealed pocket for sensitive documents such as a passport. These pockets are designed for passport sized documents or other similarly sized flat items. The openings to each pocket are secured by Velcro. Under normal observation the compartments are not visible. With the increased dimensions of the TNT-EM bag, these pockets are wider and therefore can accommodate a full sized handgun or anything else of similar size.
Features an 18" long padded portion that is 2" wide, increased thickness to 0.5”, and lined with Dri-Lex. The pad is fixed so it will not shift or slide. The straps on each end of the padded portion are 1" wide webbing with dual ITW 1" rounded oval slides used to secure the ends. The 1” wide webbing ends are fully adjustable for length. An adjustment loop section with an integrated ‘Z-pull’ sewn to a plastic slider allows quick length adjustment of the shoulder strap. The 1" webbing continues along the padded section and is bartacked at 1.5" intervals. The strap is detachable but is designed to remain attached to the bag and can be stowed in either Side Stash Pocket when not in use. Two H&K style snap hooks are supplied allowing the strap to be secure yet quick to detach and stow. Due to the straps excellent modularity, a split bar ITW side release buckle (not included) can be added instead as an emergency quick release option if needed. There are six metal D-ring attachment points allowing different carry options (see photos below for details).
A detachable 1" wide webbing waist strap with quick release ITW GhillieTEX 1" GTSR buckle is included. The strap is adjustable for length and features a 2" wide elastic loop for securing any excess length of the strap. The waist strap attaches with sewn in ITW 1" rounded oval slides that are routed through ITW GhillieTEX 1" wide Looplocs sewn onto the bag. The strap can be left attached to the bag, unbuckled and each end stowed in its adjacent Side Stash Pocket, or removed completely.
Two carry handles, each sewn to the front and back panels of the body of the TNT bag respectively are made of 1.5" webbing. Although thin and low profile the carry handles are fully capable of carrying the weight of the bag when loaded. A padded and Velcro secured wrap for connecting the carry handles is sewn to the rear handle.
Back pack straps:
Included are two identical Back Pack Straps. The straps are made of 2” wide seat belt type webbing with 1" webbing and a Ladderloc sewn in at the end for length adjustment. At the top end of each Back Pack Strap is a sewn in ITW rounded oval slide that is routed through the pair of ITW GhillieTEX 1" wide Looplocs sewn onto one side of the rear of the bag. The bottom ends of the straps attach to the metal D-rings on the opposite end of the bag via plastic snap hooks. These straps are quick and easy to attach, detach, and stow easily in the bag.
Side stash pockets:
On each side of the TNT bag are 9" tall open top pockets with approximately 170 cu. in. internal volume. They feature a unique pleated design which allows them to lay somewhat flattened for a lower profile when not used, yet will expand away from the bag when loaded. When expanded they add about 3" to each side of the bag. Features shock cord closure with sewn in ITW GhillieTEX Cordloc for one handed tightening. The outer edge of the pocket angles up which will wrap over the shoulder of a bottle keeping it secure and preventing it from slipping or popping out. On the interior of the opening edge are two tab loops for dummy cording content or adding a loop of shock cord for retention of radios and other long items. These pockets will accommodate: Nalgene bottle, two 16.9oz commercial water bottles, USGI 1 qt. canteen, five 30 round standard capacity AR-15/M4/M16 magazines, or five 20 round standard capacity .308 FAL/M1A magazines. Inherent design makes these pockets makeshift dump pouches.
Taller and wider than on the TNT Bag, located on the front of the TNT-EM Bag with Velcro closure and immediate access pull tab. There is no Velcro at the pull tab which allows rapid unobstructed access. 1.5" wide hook Velcro was utilized as a balance between quick access and staying secure. The compartment will accommodate most full sized handguns. It will hold two full sized handguns if a second holder is used (only one is included). The interior back panel is lined completely in loop Velcro, allowing attachment of any hook Velcro backed accessories. A universal handgun holder and two elastic loop magazine/accessory holders are included. The handgun holder is fully adjustable and is designed to allow one of the Velcro bases to fold under the handgun so that it can be positioned closer to either end of the compartment. Each magazine holder features four elastic loops that will accommodate single stack .45 magazines, most double stack magazines, flashlights, and anything else of similar size. The back panel is stiffened with a sheet of HDPE plastic which supports the weight of a handgun and magazines, preventing any sagging.
Located on the back of the TNT Bag, this compartment is designed to carry a 17" screen laptop and/or most documents, magazines, newspapers, notebooks, etc. It measures 17" x 12" x 12" features a full dual zipper opening that runs the length of the sides and top (these areas are not padded). There are two vertical straps – one on the bag side, one on the panel side – with enough Velcro overlap to secure flat items as well as those with some thickness or bulk. The straps will also hold folded clothing in place. The exterior panel of the compartment is padded and quilted for comfort and to provide some grip when the bag is worn snug with the waist strap.
