The Sitka Gearslinger is our sling designed bag which allows the user to "swing" the pack to the front while the pack is still worn.


A one-strap design maximizes utility when the bag is rotated to the front of your body, and a ventilated, padded back keeps you comfortable.
The Sitka Gearslinger is a practically indestructible, sling-style bag that allows you to "swing" the pack to the front while it's still being worn. Originally designed for military and law enforcement professionals in the field, the bag has a main compartment and hydration compartment which can accept CCW accessories, and the shoulder strap is designed to go over left shoulder for better weapon shouldering.

Top and side handles offer numerous alternative carrying positions, while the PALS modular webbing throughout enables you to easily attach accessories. A water bottle pocket is sized to fit a standard 32-ounce Nalgene bottle.

The Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger is a top quality product from Maxpedition. If you are looking for a rugged, well designed, extremely strong and durable Gearslinger then look no further than Maxpedition. They offer lots of gear that is some of the best and most durable around.

I recently upgraded from the Remora to the Lunada and now the Sitka. I use the Sitka regularly as my Every Day Carry (EDC) bag and I think I have finally found the perfect bag for me. It holds approximately 618 cubic inches of gear. That is a lot of space to carry your daily essentials. The shoulder strap is designed for left shoulder carry only and it comes with a cross strap for added stability (the cross strap can be tucked away if you choose not to use it). The shoulder strap is heavily padded and very comfortable, much more so than the Remora or Lunada. The cross strap is very useful if you pack your Sitka full of gear as it will securely hold it in place. The cross strap is also beneficial to reduce shoulder fatigue if your load is heavy. The buckle on the cross strap has a built in whistle that is very functional. The side of the pack which rests on your back is heavily padded and very comfortable. A unique feature of the Sitka is that you can get to your gear by simply rotating the pack towards the front of the body without having to take it off. This is a very slick feature. It also comes with top and side handles for carrying.

The Sitka has the following:
- Large main compartment (15" high x 8" wide x 3" thick with internal organization),
- Front upper pocket (4" high x 7.5" wide x 2" thick with internal organization),
- Front lower pocket (8" high x 7.

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this bag and I was initially very excited by my choice and very satisfied with the purchase. I found the bag on Amazon for just over $100, so it was a great value too. If you have watched any YouTube reviews or read up on this bag, all the good things people say about it are completely true. It is built extremely well and has some very nice features.

BUT I rarely see anyone mention how uncomfortable this bag is for extended wear or how it becomes increasingly painful as you add weight. Maybe the people conducting these reviews and throwing out 5 stars write the review before actually using the bag. I am writing this review after 6 months of continuous daily use, wherein I tried very hard to be happy with its performance.

I purchased this bag for everyday use and I selected this particular sling model for its concealed weapon carry feature. For the last six months I have packed it to and from work everyday. I use it on weekends when I travel or stay out for the night. I take it to the gun range. I keep my gun in the rear water bladder pocket using Maxpedition's velcro holster and mag holders. I keep my essentials in the front-top pocket (lighter, knife, multi-tool, flashlight, etc). Everything else varies based on what I'm doing. It generally holds all of my stuff just fine, but the main pocket does fill up quickly and is actually pretty narrow. It will accommodate hold compact laptops or tablets (as a size reference).

This bag has a huge design flaw in regards to WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION. When you carry a messenger bag, the weight is distributed across your chest and then rests upon your hip.

Color Name: KhakiSize Name: One Size
I feel like I too have FINALLY found the perfect bag for all the stuff I want to carry - without toting a huge pack or having to make sacrifices as to what I am going to carry.

I have used the Remora for over a year - several times a week at least. It holds a wonderful amount of stuff - tons more than my Fatboy and actually, it gives my Jumbo Fatboy Versipack a run for it's money on holding stuff.

BUT, I wanted to pack a light rain jacket, maybe some lunch at times, maybe the video camera and the regular camera, and my M-2 waistpack with the survival stuff in it...and with the assorted gum,candy, carmex, contact lens stuff...it just wasn't gonna all fit in my Remora.

The Gearslinger concept - I can't live without it after having carried the Remora for a year. Either shoulder, backpack style, front of the body, on the side like a man purse...it's awesome. I don't take off the Sitka, just like I didn't the Remora when I am on a ride at a themepark, or in a resturant, or when the airport makes you take that bus to the car...etc...actually, one cool part I like is sitting at an NFL game- all my stuff, right at hand and I'm not gonna lose it, or leave it behind, etc..I just stand up and sling it around to my side or back as needed. My Sitka also fits neatly in the top of my Duluth canoe pack, a bag within a bag, if you will.

The Sitka itself - as the other review said here - go to the Max web-site - or you tube it - the smaller pockets are plenty for me and my stuff and I actually found mesh zippered bags to be a great thing for the inside of the larger pockets to divide up some stuff without it getting all jumbled together. For example, my daughters old mesh pencil case holds my contact lens spares, glasses, solution, case, etc..
