Great bag. Very well-made and rugged. Lots of pockets for all of my stuff. I am impressed with the heavy-duty stitching, zippers and buckles. Seems to be waterproofed pretty well, although my bag hasn't been put to a true test yet....
Pros:
  • rugged
  • Multiple pockets
Cons:
  • Strap can get in way
Best Used for:
  • Travel
  • Range
  • Backpacking
  • Work gear
Would recommend: Yes

i have been using this bag exclusively as my daily use bag, i ride a motorcyle 7 days a week year round in florida. It is rarely not on my back thru out the week. Worn it in hurricane weather and 100+F temps. It was even on my back buring a 30mph bike accident (only visible wear is on the mesh side pouch that hold the waist strap when not in use) i use it for everything from holding rain gear to transporting groceries. Tons of pockets of all shapes and sizes.
Pros: easy access to gear w/o removing the bag, lots of pockets and attachment options
Cons: shoulder strap create a sweat area on chest/shoulder and can fatigue back on one side when used long term fully loaded...

Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger Backpack - Khaki/Foliage

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, UT Written on February 28, 2013
Got this as a larger EDC alternative to a Versipak already in use. Does its job well. Not certain yet how to best configure since there are many good options. Ample room. Comfortable, although the material is stiff. Should loosen up over time. Am told it looks really good over the shoulder, too, if that matters to the user.
Pros: Tough, attractive and utilitarian. Should last for years.
Cons: Pricey, but.......

Maxpedition monsoon gearslinger backpack

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on February 17, 2013
I use this bag to carry law enforcement equipment. It holds all the necessary items for day to day use neatly and securely. I sometimes have a struggle getting things out of certain pockets quickly, but everything gets easier with practice. This bag is extremely durable and has a high quality appearance. It can be carried on both shoulders, but it is made specifically for left or right, so be sure you know which side you are ordering for.
Pros: Durable, pockets for everything, convenient carry
Cons: Getting to some pockets is more work than expected. ...

Outstanding pack!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 5, 2013
Even if you are a heavy packer, which I am not, you would have plenty of room with this slinger. I have mine set up as an everyday bugout/emergency/range bag. First aid, water, dry food/MRE, blanket, flashlight, knife, ccw, ammo, ect. Still have room for extra clothes, tent w/poles and stakes, more food and water, and a sleeping bag if I use extra straps on the bottom. The cross body single sling design is very comfortable, doesn't slip or move while moving around, and comes with an extra waist strap, good for running or long rugged hikes. The bag is very stiff and flat when new, and only gets better with age and regular use. One way to get a little stiffness out and open up or (form) the bag....stuff a large pillow in the main compartment, and wadded up sheets and tshirts in others. Keep it this way for about a week in your bathroom, while you take steamy, hot showers. In a few days, it will loosen up a bit, and open itself for maximum packing space with ease. Overall, for my needs, this bag is extremely well made, and receives an A+!
Pros: Plenty of room for everything
Cons: Nothing...
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent purchase!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 21, 2013
Love it! Bought it for my husband who is very picky! He was thrilled. I looked at dozens of sling sacks and most of them looked like they were built for a child. This one fit a 6'2" guy with no problem! We would buy it again but I think that this one will last awhile!
Pros: Roomy, rugged, well-made, lots of pockets...

Monsoon

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on May 3, 2012
This bag was what i was looking for. I can throw my shoes, towel, and a change of cloths in the main area. Use the pockets for my shampoo and other things I need. The pack can't hold a lot, but enough for me to go work out, shower, and get back home....

Great Pack

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MI Written on April 15, 2012
I had a Fatboy Versapack, but my wife thought it looked too much like a purse. I needed something bigger anyway and was looking at the larger Versapacks. I decided to go with this instead and I'm glad I did. More room, more comfortable for long carries and it doesn't look anything like a purse. Very convenient for discreet concealed carry, firearm can be easily accessed while pack is on your back (right hand, only). The Versapacks have a ton of little pockets, sleeves and such all over the place, the Monsoon has some, but not nearly as many. I ended up buying a few Maxpedition accessories to add some external pockets for little things.
Pros: Comfortable, roomy, great looks.
Cons: Just be aware, not as many pockets a Versapacks...

Go Bag

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 22, 2011
There are a lot of pockets. More than I know what to do with. Unfortunately, the pocket I was most looking forward to having is best set up for a left handed person. I really like the concealed carry feature of the bag but the way the bag is carried, when slung to the front you have to reach in with you left hand. It will take some adjusting on my part. Aside from that, I have no complaints. I really like the camelback feature as well. So far I have plenty of pockets for ammo and a trauma kit. Its easy to carry and is a good Go Bag.
Pros: Pockets and camel back feature
Cons: concealed carry pocket best suited for leftys...
