Been using this pack hunting probably 2-3 x per week since September. Holds my water, knife(attached on the outside), range finder, rubber gloves, para cord, flashlights, and all the other stuff I need. Size keeps me honest with what I need to bring :) I even have an old rucksack rolled up and attached to the bottom with 5.11 strap mounting system. I might get a Janus extension one of these days so I can carry two radios, or maybe I can just clip them to the outside. Has places for D-rings or carabeeners and pockets galore.Only thing missing is a grab handle, but if you're handy (or know someone who is) you can fashion one out of paracord. This is also the perfect size/shape for a tactical man purse (or a rockin' bag for the ladies :) ). Has a nice zippered compartment in back for concealed carry. This sucker is durable. It's been in the rain, the snow, the heat, and everything in between. I've dropped it, used it as a shooting rest, and generally beaten it like I stole it. It still looks new (well, except for a few blood stains). I think this bag will outlast me. If you're on the fence, get it. Quality pays for itself and only hurts once. UTG makes a clone for less than half the cost and I used one first to get a sense of the dimensions and if it was the right pack for me. It made it about halfway through last season before it started falling apart. Remember that Maxped uses some sort of race of dwarves as their models, making all of their gear look huge, when in fact, it should come with a warning label: Danger, objects in hand are actually smaller than they appear on the Internet. That said, if you want a small edc bag, or a hunting kit that won't let you cram everything you think you might want in (I tend to overpack so this was a purposeful decision to limit my space), I strongly recommend getting it. Now all my gear has a place, I know where it is, and can access it within seconds. LOVE THIS BAG! Wish it were made in the US, but the Taiwanese seem to do a good job.
Pros: Organization; bomb proof; You'll be the tacticool envy of all the mall ninjas and the terror of the woods
Cons: Not made in USA; no grab handle; could be SLIGHTLY bigger (not Mongo size)
