From the manufacturer

The Perfect Lumbar Tier 2 Kit
The compact Proteus Versipack is all about options. Proteus was named after a mythological character that could take on many shapes and forms. The Proteus has 10 rows of exterior PALS webbing to accommodate modular accessories and comes equipped with compression straps that snap into its integral handle to secure contents.
This is a great bag to have when setting forth on your odyssey. It transforms from a hand-carried storage case into a self-contained butt-pack in less than 5 seconds.

- Attaches to your Maxpedition bag using two (2) 5" TacTie Attachment Straps
- Tuckable Waist-belt
- Overall size: 12"(L) x 4.5"(W) x 6.5"(H)
Multiple Carry Options

Loads of Interior Space
This compact bag still provides lots of pockets and admin panels to keep your EDC or Tier 2 Survival Gear in place and ready for use.
Plenty of Attachment Points

The idea actually came to me from the main character of an anime named Renton from Eureka Seven. He's a mechanic and carries all his tools in a pack like this but behind him and tucked under a hoodie. I thought I would try to imitate it and ended up really liking the results. My back is free and open to breathe at stoplights while since the pack sits so low on me, turning to do headchecks doesn't upset my balance like a full backpack would. It's opening is rather small but still very doable, Ive mostly used it just to carry my lunch/take out to go food like burgers, burritos or sandwiches or anything else that's compact and easy to travel with.
All n all an excellent pack for those with a specific purpose in mind.
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.
BASE 5: NYC
I'm able to fit my charger and cables, medication, small hand tools, carry license, wallet, a small med bag I thre together, notepad and writing utensils, a lighter, and my backup pistols. One is my EAA revolver and the other is a CZ75 compact for regular carry or a Glock 42 when I'm in dress/gym clothes. This is includes two spare mags for each. Bag has some weight but I'll have everything I need. The material is high quality to where I could throw this thing around through the muck and hell of nature and itll still dust off fine and hold its integrity. The stitching hasn't come apart in the 6 months Ive had the bag and that was a problem with other bags I've used prior.
The zippers dont feel like crap quality and they hold up well to excess gear buildup if stacked too much. The snap clips are really rugged as well and dont feel like cheap plastic. Having to unclip the two in the front to get stuff is a little annoying but I can get over that since I like everything else on the bag. I dont wear this on my waist, mainly just carry in on my cart bag or just by hand to and from the car. I also hook on my bose speaker with a few d-ring to the rings it has attached and now I have it all in one and can detach quick If needed. And all of it can still be low profile to carry in the car with all of my other field tools, equipment, groceries and especially when I have guests in the car.
Maxpedition is top of the line and will last you a lifetime. This is my second bag from them and I've just gotten their range bag and it doesn't disappoint either. You'll pay for quality but itll be worth it every time.
The pack is well sized and has a fair bit of space, but could use some more organization in the pouches to hold loose items.

I can't comment on its intended use as a hiking bum bag, but if you don't mind looking like a bit of a prat I expect it'll be excellent for that too.
Maxpedition in my opinion make the best packs you can buy and this one is no exception! I plan on getting the larger version of this pack - the Sabercat very soon!
PS - The colour of my pack is Khaki/Foliage. Check out the reviews on YouTube for all the Maxpedition products
I'd rate it higher if it had a simpler design, fewer larger compartments and longer compression straps (so I can hitch a water proof to the outside).
I keep my navigation and long distance eye piece in mine.
