      EP-FLEX2 BACKPACK (CERT)

      Posted by MHWILLIAMS on 20th Sep 2019

      Great pack! Plenty of room for all the CERT gear and supplies that may be needed or required. Especially first aid materials. The optional mesh net for external storage of hard hat is a great way to optimize interior storage space. Also added the rain cover, but haven’t been in a situation that would test its effectiveness. All in all, I would say the BEST CERT backpack I’ve ever had and Ian going to return my County issue backpack at our next meeting!
      Highly recommend!

      EP Flex2 CERT

      Wanted a bigger backpack and this looked good. Got it and a loop for the hard hat net was frayed. Called and sent a picture of damage and they are shipping me a new one. Very good customer service and they stand behind their products.

      CERT FLEX 2 BACKPACK

      Posted by MICHAEL A THOMAS on 22nd Oct 2018

      VERY WELL MADE AND HOLDS TWICE WHAT THE ORIGINAL BACK PACK HOLDS. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY GET THE HELMET NET SINCE IT TAKES UP SO MUCH SPACE. AND ALSO THE TWO CLEAR ZIPPER CONTAINERS.

      Excellent backpack for experienced CERT members with a lot of gear

      Posted by W. on 3rd Oct 2018

      I liked it so much I bought two. One for work and one for my car. The side pockets work out great. Same for the two front pouches. Lots of room. Filled them up first. I bought the two inside clear plastic pouches that Velcro to the inside of the backpack. Perfect for small items that you would keep in small plastic bags. The clipboard fits perfectly inside the zippered slot in the back of the backpack. It took some doing, but I just managed to stuff two cardboard splints into the same slot. The net for the helmet works but it’s hard to get to items without taking out the helmet. I like the way the backpack is laid out where it folds down and you can see everything in the pack without digging for it as in the other types. Plenty of room for the normal CERT gear and SAR as well. Highly recommended.

      Definitely worth the money.

      Posted by Jeff Parsons on 20th Aug 2018

      The price is reasonable. The quality is excellent. The product is well thought out except for one minor flaw: the place where you contain your hard hat on the outside will partially cover up the cool CERT logo. Not a deal breaker - obviously a minor thing. Shipping was quick. And when one part was missing, I notified them about it and received the missing part quickly with no fuss whatsoever. Very professional business attitude. Overall, I’m very pleased. This is certainly a great product and well worth the cost.
