The Kitbag is a BLUFOR/INDFOR backpack in ArmA 3.


A moderately-sized backpack, the Kitbag has a carrying capacity of 280 "mass" and 50 units when loaded.

The Kitbag can store much more than the Assault Pack, Tactical Backpack and Field Pack. Though it cannot contain as many items as the Carryall, the Kitbag is slightly lighter and only has a maximum capacity 40 less "mass" units than the latter. This essentially makes it the most stamina-efficient backpack to carry.

On the other hand, it is suitable as an alternative for the Tactical Backpack if the storage space of the heavier rucks is not required but more space is needed than the Tactical Backpack can provide.


  • Coyote: Coyote brown-coloured scheme with tan straps.
  • MTP: MTP camouflage pattern with khaki straps.
  • Green: Mud brown colour scheme with khaki straps.
  • Sage: Pale green colour scheme with light green-coloured straps.
  • Tan: Sand coloured scheme with tan straps.


  • The in-game Kitbag is modelled after the real-world "FAST Pack" backpack used by the U.S. military, as well as in limited numbers with the special forces of a few Western militaries.
  • The textures for the "Coyote" and "Sage" variants initially used an extremely bright texture that did not actually match the colours they were named after. The release of Game Update 1.86 refactored their appearances, with the old texture for the Coyote variant becoming the new (separate) Tan variant.

    There are a number of unused textures for the Kitbag, ranging from a black version to a uniquely camouflaged one adorned in the AAF's Digital pattern.
    • However, the pattern used on this variant is notably different in that the swatch used is far brighter than the default pattern used on the AAF's version of the Assault Pack.
    • This is because the pattern on this Kitbag is based on an earlier rendition of the AAF's Digital camouflage pattern, which was intended for use by the (now defunct) Raven Security PMC faction. Raven Security was a Russian private military company that was intended to serve as an REDFOR sub-faction before ArmA 3's setting was refactored in 2012.
