Top quality construction. Well thought-out storage. (UPDATE) Used everyday, very durable materials and construction. Good looking bag for work.
The main compartment zippers do not open or close well. The way the pulls are arranged they force the sliders at such an angle that they don't travel smoothly over the elements. They work OK when the bag is stuffed full, if it's empty you just collapse the bag onto itself when you pull the tabs, but the zippers don't open. It needs pulls that keep the slider in line with the elements. The bottom line is it's not quick and smooth to open. I'm hoping this gets a little better with time, but I doubt it will. (UPDATE) Zippers still suck. I'm used to them but they don't open well at all.
The shoulder straps are spread too far apart. I'm 6' and have fairly broad shoulders, but unless I have the sternum strap closed and cinched tight the straps start to ride off of my shoulders. I hate to use the sternum strap for general use but really don't have a choice. (UPDATE) Not as bad as I thought. I think my slick North Face down coat was mostly the issue.
(UPDATE) The water bottle holder doesn't fit a water bottle (see the pic). I had to jam this bottle in HARD, and it just slides out when the bag is laid down.
All-in-all a great bag, but my last bag set the bar pretty high and this one doesn't get there. (UPDATE) Having seem one now first hand, I wish I would have gotten the GORUCK GR1 instead.
Couple things I'd change:
1. I wish it had a front pocket.
2. The side pocket zippers are angled in a way that makes it a little hard to unzip.
3. The unzipped pockets in the front aren't so great when the pack is even a little bit full.
• Love the drawbridge straps that keep the front flap from opening up completely
• Love the magnetic ear flaps that keep the top of the front flap from opening
• I like the color and non-tactical look of the bag
Things I don't like about it:
• No padding in the laptop compartment. This is a huge fail! There's no padding at ALL on the bottom of the compartment, so you WILL have a moment of terror when you set your bag down on the ground too hard and hear your laptop whack against the concrete. Seriously, have no idea what Maxpedition is thinking here.
• Plenty of pockets, but no dedicated space for them. If you stuff something in a pocket, then it's almost always robbing space from the pocket that's on the other side of the wall. If you want to use one of the outside pockets as a water bottle holder, then you are taking all the space away from the pocket that's INSIDE the bag on the backside of the water bottle pocket. That's a pretty big fail as well in my opinion. The pockets all need more dedicated room to themselves because as it is, if you fill up one, you pretty much can't use another.
Top international reviews
-The waistbelt is awesome.
-Both main pockets are lockable but the pocket which is supposed to house a firearm is somehow not.
-The CCW pouch is unusable with a laptop in the bag because it gets squished down to nothing.
-The CCW compartment is between the laptop compartment and your back, jamming anything in the compartment into your back.
-Has headphone pass throughs on a bag released in 2018. No one carries their phone in their backpack and most people have Bluetooth headphones.
-The zippers for the main compartments suck.
-The side pockets can barely hold water bottles at the best of times. If you have anything in the internal mesh pockets or outer pockets you're not getting one in there.
-The luggage handle pass through adds pointless weight to an already very heavy bag.
-PRICE: At time of writing, on amazon.com the list price for the 35L version is 65% more than the 23L version. On amazon.ca the 35L version costs 68.5% more than the 23L version. I bought mine on amazon.ca because my job currently has me posted to Canada. That aside, that is a 52% increase in volume for a 65-68% increase in cost. The Square-Cube law means that there is not a proportional cost increase for producing larger sizes of bag and yet it's actually greater than proportional.
I love everything this bag tries to be but Maxpedition needs to get their features and pricing down to make it actually work as intended.
Fits my 15 inch laptop perfectly, has all the organisation and quick access areas that make using it a breeze.
Oh. And the choice of Ninja Van as a courier was top notch.
Got my item 2 weeks before the shipment due date!
Interesting because my velcro insert order from maxpedition made on the same day is still somewhere out there. Shipped by Apex that one.....
