I purchased the Maxpedition Sitka S-Type to use as an Every Day Carry (EDC) bag. I was torn between the Sitka and the Kodiak (Kodiac is reported to be the same bag, just bigger)as I'm approx. 6'1'' 255lbs and thought the smaller bag might look weird across my back. I'm glad I chose the Sitka. The bag holds it all with room to spare. I usually carry my iPad, Kindle, first aid kit, vitamins, flashlight, various electronics/chargers, water, food, and sometimes my CCW Weapon. The back of the pack and shoulder strap are very well padded and feel comfortable even when loaded up. You do need to be cautious about overloading the bag, since all the weight is on one shoulder, carrying too much can cause back strain and fatigue. One of the best things about this bag is its ability to swing around to your chest for easy access to the pockets/pouches. You can even use the bag as a working surface for writing/swapping batteries or memory cards/ect...One of the features that is often overlooked is the security strap for your zipper tabs. This is a great feature. When all of the zipper tabs are moved to the top of the bag(when its on your chest) there is a loop that you can run the zipper tabs through and tighten. Its not really lockable, but I imagine I would feel/hear if someone were trying to undo it in an effort to remove something from the pack while I was wearing it. The only negative I have for this bag would be that the pack seems to rest on my lower back, which means the key holder/stability strap buckle on the shoulder strap is too far up on my shoulder to really use. If I want to use the stability strap or key holder I have to really tighten down the strap and that makes it a bit more uncomfortable. That could just be b/c of my body shape though. Overall I'm very pleased with the Sitka and use it everyday.

I had never heard of Maxpedition until I started looking for BOBs and EDC bags. When it arrived I was extremely impressed with the craftsmanship that went into this bag. It is certainly high quality, and one should expect that at the price point for this bag. Being in the service, predicted material endurance is one thing that I look for in equipment of this type. This bag is pretty big, I don't know that I would want to wear it every day, or even have enough stuff to use it as an EDC bag. If I had a concealed carry license, this might be a better fit for me. For my use, it would be better for a day at the zoo or hiking maybe. I bought the S-type, being a lefty, but found that I would prefer to have the bag strapped over my left shoulder instead of the right. Just something to think about before you purchase. There are many good video reviews of this bag on Youtube; make sure you check them out if you are unfamiliar with the Gearslinger line.

This is my EDC bag and works great with my right side concealed carry. I can get to my weapon without having to shift the bag. Durable and is great on short hikes. Longer hikes can irritate my shoulder if I have any considerable weight in the bag though. Maxpedition makes some really good stuff.

I use this when biking or flying to carry anything I might want to have on me. I carry it to work everyday with books and lunch in it. I wouldn't use it for hiking as it is a little small for that. Plenty of places to tuck things in to in order to stay organized.

Maxpedition has made another good product for carrying your gear.

I spent a weekend on foot through downtown Chicago with this carrying everything, and it was always secure and comfortable to wear.

I found I tended to wear regular book bags off one shoulder anyway, so the Sitka's one-shoulder design was made for me. It takes a little practice getting used to throwing it on and taking it off, but after a while it becomes easy. And the ability to quickly get into the bag without taking it off makes this design very handy.

All the PALS webbing makes the bag very versatile because you can add other pouches as needed. It can also accommodate a Camelbak hydration system. The bag itself is VERY well constructed with heavy nylon and double-stitching.

If you're interested in a detailed run through all its features, I recommend watching Stefan Schmalhaus' review on YouTube. He's very thorough, and all his reviews are very well produced.

A few nits: I wish there was a strap or some better means to secure the water bottle. A typical bottle with smooth sides tends to slide out if you start running or the bag's tipped over. Also, this is a very "busy" design: there are lots of straps and cords for closing and securing the various compartments. I ended up taking several off because they made it complicated getting into the bag, they were snag risks, and they didn't really secure the gear any better.

But these are minor nits. For a day-bag, I don't know anything better.

Picked this up to try as another EDC option. So far it's been working out great. I picked up the S-type even though I'm right handed, the reason being is that I need a bag that will not interfere while I'm carrying with my IWB holster, and this bag is perfect. I wanted something smaller than my Kodiak yet larger than the Malaga and again the Sitka is just right. I can carry all of my EDC gear along with my Ipad and lunch and I still have some room left over.

Shipping was fast and it was packaged well.
