I bought this bag for a specific purpose. My Maxpedition Falcon 2 is one of my favorite go-bags but it's just a bit too small for a weekend outing or to be used as the now famous "bug out bag". A great way to fi that problem is to mate these two bags together. The Proteus pack fits perfectly under the Falcon 2. The straps line up with the MOLLE and it can be tightly strapped to the bottom. It also helps because it brings the waist strap down a bit to sit on your hips. The proteus has a better waist strap so it really works out great.
I also have another Proteus that I use as a med pack. It's the perfect size for all the first aid gear you could need.
There are a million different things you can use a bag of this size for but whatever it is I'm pretty sure you can rely on this pack.

First, I should say that it was a little smaller than I initially expected. The online measurements were accurate. I just thought it would be a tad bit wider and deeper.
My second (slight) disappointment is the zipper on the main compartment. The compartment will easily hold an EDC Fatty, but it take a little effort to get it in because of the way the zipper works. It would be better if the zipper was a clam shell. Oh, well ....
Needless to say, it didn't quite meet my initial expectations. I was able to turn it into a mini-tool kit. It was working well in that assignment - then my life changed.
I was recently diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes I also have a number of new prescriptions to take. To further complicate matters, I need to monitor my blood pressure on a regular basis. (Hey, when it rains, it pours.)
I initially used the EDC Fatty as a basic medical kit, because I already owned it and liked the layout. It became apparent that the Fatty was little too tight to hold all my meds and far too small to carry a blood pressure monitor.
I wanted a bag that could be carried by hand and easily accessible when worn. I looked at the GearSlinger series, particularly the Lunada and Malaga. Both are great bags, but a little too deep to use when effectively when worn on the body.
Enter the Proteus. It is absolutely perfect for my needs. The front pocket holds my syringes, lancet holder, lancets, strips, and glucometer. The right pocket holds a hard plastic bottle, which I used to store discarded sharps (needles and lancets.) The left pocket holds an iPod Touch (which runs my log software), a 3x5 notepad, flashlight, and a ZipLock bag of Q-Tips. The main compartment contains (in the mesh pocket): my prescriptions, gum, and vitamins. The main pocket contains a wrist based blood pressure meter (in its case), three Glucerna bars, instant tea packets, a small bottle of Vaseline, a battery powered razor, and hand lotion.
While this bag holds a lot of stuff, the main benefit, for me, is that I can access all of the medicine and equipment by simply moving the bag to the front. This has worked well and has saved me a lot of time.
I love this bag. Highly recommended.
Also, the clips have held in place the waist strap that can accommodate a measurement up to 48 inches. Then, the buckle and the waistband keep the large, 2-inch-wide strap snug; nothing quirky comes off, and no annoying hotspot digs into my back. Furthermore, the handgrip adds versatility.
With the waist strap dangling, I hand carry the bag for the last couple of hundred yards toward my destination. As I get closer to the shop, I look for a secluded area. When I get to one, I then take out what I need. I eventually drink from a Nalgene rectangular bottle, dry myself with a washcloth, change into a dry T-shirt, and eat my snack. Including my cell phone, garage door opener, and wallet, the Proteus still has room.
When I'm altogether refreshed and cleaned, I make my way to the shop's reception area by tucking the waist strap into the back of the Proteus, morphing it into a small toolbox-like bag.
So overall, the Proteus has allowed the generous and comfortable carry of my possessions while I'm under physical exertion. Fortunately, I'm able to take care of myself after the run because I have my own supplies. There's something joyful with that independence. And the Proteus is a gem of a bag that's made it possible.
