BRCC X Nomadic Research Hip-Chest Pack Provides Modern-Day Performance

The functional applications of today’s modern-day fanny pack can be traced back almost 5,000 years ago, when the first prototype of a fanny pack in history was found on the mummified remains of a hunter in the Otztal Alps between Germany and Austria. Otzi, aka the Iceman, sported a simplistic, but highly effective, hip or belt pouch that contained three flint tools, one bone awl, and a lump of true tinder fungus, a material used to start a fire.

Fast-forward to 2022, and the BRCC X Nomadic Research Hip-Chest Pack is next level in versatility and performance. Designed by Black Rifle Coffee Company CEO Evan Hafer, this modern-day fanny pack can be worn on your waist, slung over your shoulder, or even used as a chest harness.

The pack is built from durable 500D Cordura nylon and double-coated with waterproof polyurethane. It also revolves around a discreet concealed-carry pocket fitted for a G-43 or similar EDC device. There are three separate storage areas. The rear compartment allows for multiple EDC angles and draw configurations, including bottom expansion and a 50mm elastic Velcro securing strap to carry vertically.

The front accessory pocket is large enough to fit a hand-held GPS or comms device. The YKK zippered opening with rugged 2mm nylon cord pullers makes storing and accessing items like a range finder an intelligent choice. When you wear the pack as a chest harness, the waist belt conveniently tucks away in a hidden pouch, ensuring a flush, comfortable fit. And, of course, this pack also features a sizable front-panel loop fastener to rock your favorite BRCC patch out on the trail.

For long hikes, hunting, fishing, archery, or just for everyday carry — the BRCC X Nomadic Research Hip-Chest Pack does it all. It is available in either black or military green on the official Black Rifle Coffee Company website.
