Section 8 Tactical is a manufacturer producing products and accessories primarily for the tactical law-enforcement and military markets, though some of their line has a cross-over into the world of paintball.

paintballOne such item is the Section8 Tac-Pac.

The Tac-Pac is a compact, carrying case for batteries and other small accessories. With a carrying space of 3.3-inches by 3.5 inches, and .85 inches in depth, the Tac-Pac container is made of hard plastic with a flexible rubber lid.

A dense EVA foam pads the interior of the box, to protects its contents from rattling. This can be especially important with batteries that can short out and drain their charge or leak, if their contacts bump together when loose in a pocket.

In addition to the pre-cut foam, a second foam blank is included, that can be cut for custom applications. Keeping in mind the type of things a scenario player might want to have handy on the field, a few minutes with an X-Acto knife prepped the foam to hold a pair of 9-volt loader batteries and stack of a dozen bottle o-rings.

paintballWhile the Tac-Pac is not advertised as waterproof, dunking it in water for several seconds yielded no leakage, and its seal appears more than ample to keep its contents dry through the raniest of games. If it is opened in the rain, the dense closed-cell structure of the EVA foam repels water, rather than absorbing it.

The Tac-Pac includes a heavy duty nylon carry pouch, with a hook and loop closure pocket. On its reverse side, a loop allows it to be attached to a belt, harness or tactical vest. The two-piece loop is also secured with hook and loop materials, so it adjusts easily for a snug fit on large or small belts.

The Tac-Pac offers easy on-field transport and protection for small, fragile items such batteries, spare seals, or tactical flashlight spare bulbs.
