Don't let the looks fool you. It looks military like with the PALS webbing but it's not MIL-SPEC, however that's not to say it's a bad bag. I've been using this bag as my "everything" bag since 2005, when I saw them at FT. Benning. The size can't be beat. At nearly 3200 cubic inches (fully expanded) it's hard to beat. I use it daily for work, going on weekend trips, grocery shopping, playing air soft and it can serve as a bug out bag. I've used one in Iraq and it worked well for carrying some gear to different FOBs and it worked well on ground patrol missions. However you don't won't to load it down with say 50 pounds of gear or anything usually heavy because at that weight it seems to tear the inside up, and it can become very uncomfortable quickly at that weight. This bag is well organized, and very versatile. Keep in mind I'm reviewing the black version. The ACU is made of Codura nylon so that one is much stronger, but I still wouldn't want it for "hardcore" use. The ACU one has better nylon, but it still uses the cheap plastic buckles for a bed roll, the PALS attachment can't hold heavy items very well (I have two grimlocks and a pad lock on mine, and it shows signs of wear) and the metal shoulder straps that connect to the base D rings can break, as happened on my 2nd pack (I've owned three of these so far.

Overall for size, price and versatility it can't be beat. But if your looking for something more durable, or stronger look maybe to the ACU version or for a different pack all together.

I like this bag a lot, it's like carry-on luggage with backpack straps on it :-) But only 2 days after purchasing it the zippers kept opening up, back tracking (whatever the technical term is for zippers that open up from the other end after you just zipped them close-see the customer's added image above that I uploaded).

I looked over the S.O.C. website to see if this type of defect is covered in their Warranty, and I emailed them about it too.. Wouldn't you know it, they emailed me back saying that since they don't manufacture the zippers they couldn't cover any faulty zippers. I am disappointed.

Like I said I like my bag, but I will not be purchasing another one from S.O.C. Everything including the price tag should be covered, period.

I was issued this bag for a recent deployment. Day one of being on the ground, the shoulder strap's stitching came completely unraveled. At the time, I had a uniform and a pair of boots in the bag. Nothing else. I had to make due by knotting the strap so I could use the backpack. It's sad that my knot was actually stronger than the factory stitching for a bag that's supposed to be used in the field carrying MUCH HEAVIER items than a uniform and a pair of boots.

I emailed SOC customer service a month ago and have yet to receive anything back from them in response...not even an automated email saying they've received my inquiry and will get back to me.

Shoddy product and sub-par customer service. They should be ashamed of themselves for putting this crap into the hands of troops deploying.

Horrible bag- Just walking into class today I pulled down on the straps to tighten the pack. The plastic buckle popped off like a poorly sewed button. This is not the first time. I emailed Sandpiper of California, they asked for photos then...no response. No way to wear the pack without tape at this point.

The zippers- great but they do no good if you cannot wear the pack.

Everything else- very durable- but a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.

This is an update to my original review. I've downgraded my opinion of this bag. I'll leave the original below for comparison.

This is a 'good' bag--just 'good'. The cons that I originally listed are large enough to drag down my opinion of the bag. If you're going to use this bag to do normal travel with, it's great. It holds a ton of stuff. It's expandable and has good compression straps. The shoulder straps are comfortable enough for everyday general wear. If you don't have heavy duty designs on this bag it's a pretty great bag.

CONS:

The shoulder straps are not comfortable enough or well-designed enough for heavy duty loads. I had designs on using this bag for the GoRuck Challenge that would've required me to carry this bag for 13-15 consecutive hours with a 35-45lb load. In preparation for that I did MudRunManiac's 100 Ruckin' Miles Challenge. This bag was not up for it. The first problem is that it has not internal load distribution system. There is no way to secure a heavy load at the top of the back (the way a radio bag would allow--or a GR). This means that I was forced to load up the bottom of the bag with towels in order to ensure the placement of my load. Again, if you're just doing normal stuff this is not an issue.

There is no hydation management. There is a place to put the bladder but there is not tube management. I have both a loose Camelbak bladder (70oz) and a Source bladder that has it's own Molle-style sleeve. Neither one works comfortably with this bag. The Molle straps on this bag are a joke. There is no way that it works well to actually connect some extra external object to this bag--it just doesn't work. Don't bother.

The hardware on this bag is not good.
