@LawrenceBJones3 @FoxNews That’s a cheap tactical backpack with a MOLLE attachment system (cosplay types refer to stuff like that as “EDC”, for “every day carry”).

That’s a cheap backpack that you’re wearing backwards.

You’re wearing a backpack with the “cool part” facing camera.

On purpose.
@LawrenceBJones3 @FoxNews I recognized the pack; it's similar to one I bought my kid for a costume. So I cropped it for a reverse image search, and…
@LawrenceBJones3 @FoxNews A plate carrier has a cummerbund-style waistband to hold armor plates.

What you're wearing has backpack waist straps.

@LawrenceBJones3 @FoxNews I see that GoGurt.
@LawrenceBJones3 @FoxNews Okay, two final things:

1) The GoGurt was photoshopped in as a joke; the original photo makes it clear that the pouch doesn't have a GoGurt pack sticking out. It's actually raisins, and they're fully enclosed. 😏

2) I'm muting this thread now. It's been fun.
