Chris “Shark Jump” Costa is back at it with a ridiculous pod shaped backpack…*ahem* sorry “satchel”:
I could barely catch my breath between LOLs when I first saw this thing. Did April fools day get moved this year? Astro Boy’s androgynous cousin Robin called, he want’s a piece of the profit for inspiring the design.
The Hive Satchel is $195 over at Blue Force Gear. It’s funny how they say it’s so “discrete”… like yea sure it won’t look like anything with a gun in it to the untrained eye, but it will definitely draw attention and speculation because everyone that looks at it will be like “wow, that’s a fucking stupid looking backpack, what does he carry in there? Probably the life helmet he should be wearing so he doesn’t hurt himself on the world.” hopefully just to themselves, but if they say it out loud you can reply “IT’S A SATCHEL DAMNIT, and CHRIS COSTA designed it… DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO CHRIS COSTA IS?! If not, KILL YOURSELF.”
Who makes up the target market for this? Will it fit a rifle, tactical arm tape, zombie derp dvds, and Haley’s skin care products inside? In an active shooter scenario I’d think this would be more of a liability than an asset because if the shooter is at all humane, he’d put the guy with the most retarded looking backpack out of his misery to start things off.
I think I may have given Costa way too much credit when he was with Magpul. The guy is letting me down bigtime now.
Thoughts? Does this next-level satchel meet your tier 1 requirements as an operator who operates in discreet urban operations?
