My job takes me all over the world, and wherever I go, my Kodiak goes with me. Within the last 4 months, this bag has been to Texas, Ohio, Washington DC, England, Norway, and Russia. It's been thrown around on military cargo airplanes, dropped in puddles, and has CONSTANTLY been WAY over-packed for its size. So far it has come through with flying colors. I purchased the S-type model, because I'm a leftie, and this particular type of Gearslinger is designed with southpaws in mind. All the more reason why I have come to rely on this bag on practically a daily basis. I have never seen a better constructed or more durable backpack, and will definitely continue to buy Maxpedition products on the strength of this one purchase.

UPDATE: 18 May 2014 - After two and a half years of abuse, and more than 50 trips later, this Kodiak is STILL going strong! There is not so much as a single stitch that has come undone, nor is there any area that has worn thin or torn. In fact, it's a bit hard to believe just how good this sling bag still looks. There have been multiple occasions where I was cramming so much gear inside that I thought "ok, this time I've overdone it and the zippers or seams are about to bust", but although the bag strained, it always managed to zip, close, and get me through. Even the plastic buckles are still in tact, which is impressive considering I routinely drop this bag from 2nd story heights and fling or toss it around mercilessly. After it gets dirty, a wet cloth will remove most of the dirt and grime. The water repellent material has been a life-saver, considering how many times this bag has sat out in the rain. Bottom line.....this bag lives up to the Maxpedition claims of hard use gear. It certainly has for me.

The design

It's made by Maxpedition so you already know the material, zippers, buckles, and stitching are durable (or indestructible); plus, this is specifically crafted for the right-brained crowd (that brought a tear to my eye). The secondary handle is perfectly placed and allows for the pack to swing around effortlessly. This is why I bought it and why you're considering it--so yeah, the design is flawless! :)

The size

The Kodiak is your standard-sized backpack. I'm glad I chose this over the Sitka because the size is perfect--you may not want to overload it because it has only one strap; but, this gives you the option of having space for clothes, a poncho liner, etc.

The comfort level

The strap is wide and heavily padded which makes it very comfortable. The back is padded, then the additional padding allows air to pass through so your back doesn't sweat. Also, the top carrying handle has extra padding which is a nice touch.

The compartments

There is a plethora of compartments, webbing, and zippered pouches which allows you to organize/customize your pack with ease. It also has a hydration/bladder slot and a water bottle compartment which is easily secured. All this stops your stuff from shifting around as you switch between the horizontal and vertical positions.

Too many features (that's Maxpedition for you)

The anti-theft bungee system is cool; I imagine I will never use that, or the Y-strap cinch-down feature, so I removed them because I can't stand anything dangling from my pack. I also tucked the secondary strap into the bladder compartment because I don't imagine I will need it for walking around campus (but it's still there for when I go hiking).

I am really impressed with this bag. This bag is fantastically designed with all the different storage pouches. With the Molle webbing, you can modularize this bag to your hearts content. The material of the exterior of the bag is very stiff and thick. I think it will outlast every other bag I have. I can get my MacBook Air (13") easily inside either the main compartment and the hydration compartment. I won't use this for CCW, but you could. The draw out of the bag would be pretty awkward and slow. This is why I bought the S-type, so it keeps my right hip (I am right handed) free for my IWB holster.

The padded strap is wide and comfortable. The stabilizing small waist strap helps keep the bag in place when you bend your torso during hiking. No issues even when I occasionally jog or have to climb up or down a steep trail. I have a few pouches attached to the bag with Molle and everything is very secure and tight. With the external pouches, I can carry 3-4 days worth of clothes on a business trip in the main compartment even though I basically have my entire office packed in this thing. I haven't gone on any overnight hikes, but I think I could take everything I need for a two or three day camping trip. I may need to buy another one for that purpose because unpacking my office from this bag to go hiking is a PITA.

I have to admit that carrying a heavy bag on one shoulder can get you sore. So far, though, I have been very happy with this gear slinger. Fantastic quality, extremely durable, very versatile, and great looking, too. I highly recommend.
