Pros :

When you receive this bag is flat and compressed for shipping purposes and is deceptively small. Once you open it up, I found it to be impressively spacious.

Lots of Space  Excellent organization options  Extremely well thought-out  Excellent quality.  

Can be worn as a backpack which is excellent for traveling; at the airport, you pick up your bag, put it on your back and get to your vehicle.  It works very well.  It’s not the most comfortable backpacker and it wasn’t designed to be but for the purpose of hauling for short durations, it’s excellent.

Offers a large amount of space

Very tough bag; stronger and more durable than your average civilian pack. Also much better quality than you run of the military tactical style travel bags that are out on the market.

I wouldn’t say that it is military grade but if it was, it would weight at least 10lbs and would be overkill for most people. Without a doubt, strong enough for outdoor use, travel use, law enforcement and so on.

Footlocker design is very handy.

Lots of storage options, pockets and so on.                 Lots of ways to carry

Light weight compared to many packs of this size                Excellent option for traveling use as long as the size fit your needs.

Excellent clam shell design – opens up and you are presented with all of you gear/clothing and so on.

I like the zipper pulls and the internal compartments, they come in handy for separating clean and dirty laundry for the trip home. Also like that the shoulder straps removed

Believe it or not, this pack is also hydration bladder compatible!             Excellent should harness system 

Review Cons :

Can be a bit pricey-but you pay for quality so scratch that from the con list!

There are many zippered access points on this pack and only the main portion of the pack is lockable.  I mention that for those who find that to be an important feature; I personally do not.

While technically the pack is the dimensions stated by the company, I have found that it is only to the measurements which absolutely stuff to the point where the zippers are stressed. Maxpedition states a width of 11” but it’s actually a few inches shy of that unless crammed and stretched full.

Summary :

This pack is ready to serve whatever needs that you have; may it be travel, photography/filming trip, hunting trip, etc

It’s an excellent quality pack and features some truly excellent designs/features. Can easily hold a weeks’ worth of clothing and other gear including my laptop and so on.
