I hate to give it a one star, but the buckle in the front is cheap. It broke in like 6 months of owning it and customer support called it a “wear item” what good is lifetime warranty with this isn’t covered. It’s sewn in and can’t be easily fixed. I guess I expected more from a $90 bag
This is my EDC bag now since I started having back problems. I have attached a couple of attachments since even though it is the Jumbo version I tend to carry a couple of things.
Currently I carry my ASUS 10.1 Transformer Tablet in the back sleeve, a 32 OZ Double wall Zojirushi Thermos in the bottle compartment. An Extra large Bento Zojirushi Canister with Lunch in it (Main compartment). A portable 2 TB Hard Drive in the EDC Pocket organizer as well as an Anker 5 port USB charger. Wireless Mouse On the MIni Pocket Organizer. My Klipsch headphones on the left hand side sleeve and, backup mee electronics headphones. Some work materials in the left side pocket. On the top little compartment a Charger for my Phone, 2 retractable micro usb chargers (one for my laptop and one for forgetful android co-workers phones) mini usb retractable charger cable, 3DS USB recharger. I also have my leatherman multitool (wave) attached to the molle webbing. Last but not least on the front organizer compartment I have pens, Floss more work goodies. I have a little bit more room but not much more cause I would kill my back again and it would be troublesome to close the front clasp.
I still have a Maxpedition slinger pack but that was when I was carrying my 15.6 Acer laptop and when back was doing much better along with alot of other stuff that I should have not been carrying.
My boyfriend bought this as an EDC (everyday carry bag). He choose this bag because it has a concealed carry compartment while also having plenty of room for other things he deems a necessity. These 'necessities' for driving to and from work, and the grocery store to be fair, include: a full on first aid kit equipped with thermometers and a splint, military issue compass, water bottle, flash light, comb, eating utensil (cool spork thing that folds), a rape whistle, Gerber multi-tool, rations (yes, food), wet wipes, his wallet, and phone (and pistol of course). All of this is with three pockets going unused. He plans to fill this with a better flashlight, water filtration system, and a lighter...
He is also very excited that there are plenty of attachments for this bag so he can add more stuff to his hoard. I love the color, the fact that the strap is very adjustable (I am 5ft 3, he is 6ft) and it works for both of us. Also, you can't see it in the picture, but there is a belt strap. If you plan to use this during a hike, the strap can be used to distribute the weight better and off your shoulders.
TIP: Use the belt just above your hip bone and wear it snug, your shoulders will thank you during a longer hike.
I used the fatboy for a while, and just didn't like its size, it really wasn't fitting my purpose. after 3 months of using this, I can say it's the perfect size for me. I carry several moleskine notebooks, my ipad, water bottle, several assorted medications, lotions, multitool, folding knife, and a few other things in here, and i still have room if I want to carry something else.
Sometimes i will loosen the front buckle, and my thermos fits snugly on the top of everything with my camelbak chute water bottle in the carrying pouch.
This is an amazing pack, and I absolutely love it. I was scared to use it as an EDC, because I'm a guy, and it looks suspiciously like a purse. I get complements from guys and girls alike, and I've had several guys genuinely interested in getting one for themselves. I wore my backpack as an EDC for many years, and even though it was more versatile (spacious), this has plenty of room for my needs, and makes it much easier to organize/find everything.
This is a good pack to have along on day hikes/bike rides/geocaching. I have a few backpacks, but get kind of tired carrying around on my back as I get older. Been looking at these side/shoulder packs for quite some time now and decided to purchase one. Glad I did!! I like the shoulder strap concept for it would make carrying stuff a lot easier. Main compartment is large enough for spare shirts, socks, rain gear. Multiple pockets to carry/store those essentials that you want in one spot and for quick/easy access.
Pocket for a water bottle. Adjustable shoulder strap and can be adjusted to fit left or right shoulder. Pockets large enough to accommodate handguns and ammo and snacks. Was looking at this product on the Maxpedition website, and these things looked larger on their videos than they actually are in reality.
Purchased my side pack via Amazon for I thought that the price was a lot more reasonable than the Maxpedition website. Purchased the "safety yellow" color mainly because I do a lot of hiking/biking on my own and my theory is if something happens to me, hopefully the bright yellow color would be just a bit more noticeable contrasting with the natural surroundings - in theory!!
Overall, satisfied with my pack and can see it being abused in the near future. Amazon done a great job in delivering product to me in a timely manner, actually about 3 days sooner than expected.
Good size to serve as a general purpose satchel. You can carry this with you for conceal and carry (this did not have the accessory holster strap) using zippered pouch. However, if not used for conceal and carry you can still use the accessory to hold pepper spray canister. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001DZT8BS/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_36 You will have ample room to carry your First Aid Kit, paracord spool, etc., a sunglass holder pouch, separate pouch for multi-tool, slip pocket for long blade or baton, zipper pouch on cover flap (note pad and pen) and a hydro-flask holder (32 oz.). The cross chest makes it easy to carry.
I also have the Fat Boy, which is smaller than the Jumbo and minus the hydroflask holder.
I purchased this a month or so ago after having seen them on Youtube, I think. I did some research and found that Maxpedition seem to be well regarded, particularly on the U.S. I have not been disappointed. I use this along with a couple of Maxpedition's pocket pouches as an every day carry bag and as a bag to carry some food and small bits and bobs when I am on a long dog walk, for example.
It is built like a brick outhouse with tough ballistic nylon material. Given that it only has one strap in a sling style, as long as you don't hugely load it with weight, it is comfortable on the shoulder. It has a one inch wide waist strap which can be used to secure it to your body. This stops it moving around when on a hike.
Lots of pockets, clips and Molle webbing attachments. There is not really anymore I can say that is not already out there on the web. Check out Youtube and you will find loads of really useful reviews on this and other Maxpedition gear.
I highly recommend it, and would I buy some more of their stuff? I already did, and at some point, a rucksack from them is on the cards. Go buy one.
The maxpedition Jumbo is a great bag and i carry it almost every day. Both to work, packed with an 8 inch tablet, alot of tech and my lunch, and for family stuff, diapers snacks and clothes. It does pretty good as a diaperbag.
I have had mine for over a year and I have yet to find a fault with it.
Its really durable and holds off dirt pretty good. Its also pretty much waterproof.
It has a pocket for concealed carry weapons. That is great for my phone, wallet, tickets, passport or other stuff you want easily accesible.
Otherwise its pretty much what it says on the tin. The havnt revolutionised bags, they just made a very good one.
I was looking for a satchel-type bag when I stumbled upon this Maxpedition versipack. It isn't the cheapest bag around, but it's definitely worth every pound spent. Based on other customers reviews, I chose the jumbo, because I wanted to make sure I could pack a book and a lunchbox, while still having some space left.
Well, honestly, even with a (large) book, a lunchbox and a notebook, the center bag's only half full, and we're not even talking about the smaller side-bags. And yes, it's (more than) big enough for a tablet.
And as a daily commuter who is (most of the time) packed like a sardine during his trainrides, this bag gives me more moving space than a standard rucksack.
The only negative point is that it's not made to hold A4-size paper, but I was (well) aware of that before I bought it. So not a problem at all!
Anyway, another happy Maxpedition customer!
I use this bag for my travels to carry 2 small cameras, a Sony NEX 7 with 10/12 lens & Olympus EM1/12/40 lens +75/1.8 lens. Lots of pockets for memory cards , leads & passport etc.I have used Maxpedition bags for years & they are far superior to any camera bag you can buy.
I bought this for my partner and he loves it. It has loads of pockets and it's a good size. He uses a walker so he needed a bag that wasn't too difficult to lug around with him. This bag definitely fit the bill.
Great product, you can purchase same on amazon from different sellers, Over extremely well made will last lifetime.
Great adventure bag. Rough and tough.
Great piece of kit, fits everything I need perfectly. Is sturdy and easy to carry
...leider, müsste man fast sagen, denn der Preis ist schon ziemlich ambitioniert.
Aber hier geht es schließlich um eine Bewertung der Tasche als solche und nicht um die Preis-Leistung.
Ich hatte diese Tasche schon länger im Auge. Damals war sie noch regulär für unter 100 Euro zu bekommen. Mitlerweile ist der Preis für eine "Made in Taiwan" Tasche doch ziemlich hoch gegriffen.
Meine Tasche war ein Angebot für 85 Euro... da konnte ich nicht widerstehen.
Die Tasche als solche ist hervorragend verarbeitet und erfüllt ihren Zweck. Ich benutze sie auf meinen Touren, wenn ich Vögel beobachte. Ich hatte immer Probleme, meine Kamera, das Fernglas und die Bestimmungsbücher mitzubekommen. Einen Rucksack habe ich, aber den muss man immer erst abnehmen um an das Gerät zu kommen.
Die Maxpedition hängt seitlich am Körper und lässt sich wunderbar nach vorne ziehen und öffnen.
So habe ich jetzt entweder meine Nikon D90 mit 18-105mm Objektiv in der Tasche und das Fernglas um den Hals, oder anders herum.
Ich benutze ein Nikon Action EX 10x50 Porroprismen Fernglas und das passt hervorragend in diese Tasche (das 12x50 hat die gleiche Größe). Es lässt sich sogar die Fernglastasche als stossdämpfendes Inlet nutzen. Es passt, wie dafür gemacht (siehe Bilder).
In die Reisverschlusstasche hinter dem Hauptfach passt sehr gut ein Bestimmungsbuch. Und für die restlichen Kleinigkeiten finden sich auch noch genug Plätze.
Die Reisverschlüsse sind stabil und lassen sich auch mit Handschuhen gut öffnen.
Der einzige Nachteil, der mir an der Tasche (neben dem Preis) auffällt ist, dass der Deckel das Hauptfach nicht komplett abdeckt. Sicher, man kann innen den Staubschutz zuziehen, dann kommt man aber nicht so schnell an seine Sachen.
Ich kann nicht verstehen, warum man den Deckel nicht 5 cm breiter baut, dann wäre das Problem behoben.
Läuft man, wie ich, viel durch Gestrüpp, sammelt sich so in der Tasche doch das eine oder andere Geäst.
Die Tasche hält den Regen auch sehr gut ab (Teflon beschichtet). Nur an den offenen Stellen neben dem Hauptfach dringt natürlich Wasser ein. Für mich ein klarer Konstruktionsfehler.
Nichts desto trotz ist diese Tasche mein ständiger Begleiter auf meinen Touren in die Natur.
Wen meine oben angesprochenen Mängel nicht stören, der bekommt eine hervorragende Tasche.
Ein Stern Abzug wegen des zu kleinen Deckels. Den Preis lasse ich bei meiner Bewertung unberücksichtigt.
Nachtrag 25.Juni 2013:
Ich habe die Tasche bei meinen Exkursionen ständig dabei und bin nach wie vor begeistert...
Ich habe mir aus einer alten Isoliermatte ein Inlett für meine Kamera und ein Wechselobjektiv gebastelt (5 Minuten Sache mit Pattex), um die Kamera vor Stößen und Erschütterungen besser zu schützen.
In das Hauptfach der Tasche passt so eine D90 mit angesetztem Tamron 70-300mm und zusätzlich ein 18-105mm.
I bought this to replace a slightly smaller version so it would fit my Samsung tablet and I can use it as a carry-on when travelling and it fits everything i need including a change of clothes in case my luggage gets lost or delayed. I love it and Maxpedition quality is unmatched.
che nessun competitor di Maxpedition è riuscito a replicare.
La scelta degli accessori è esagerata, idem per robustezza e versatilità.
Praticamente è perfetto in ogni circostanza, dalla gita allo shopping, a tutte le attività outdoor.
Ho usato con piacere questa borsa come turista in città d' arte, al mare, su qualche cima appenninica e facendo escursioni in campagna.
Ovviamente lo consiglio a tutti ma è necessario ricordare che si tratta di una tracolla, anche se fatta nel migliore dei modi, quindi occorre fare molta attenzione a tenere basso il peso perchè può diventare molto ma molto scomoda.
Mi spiego meglio: una tracolla non è uno zaino/zainetto e viceversa. Confondere le 2 categorie può essere un problema non solo in montagna.
Sconsiglio poi di non togliere la cintura (cosa possibile in pochi istanti) perché è realmente utile e farne a meno non comporta vantaggi in nessuna situazione.
I dearly love my Versipack - it's what I carry as a side gear/lens bag for professional film work. Super well made, super thoughtful design. I've found a home for all kinds of gear in all the smart pockets - which makes finding gear super easy in the field. I literally am debating buying another, maybe two to have on hand in the event this one gets used to death, breaks [unlikely], or gets stolen.
Zaino mono spalla robusto e resistente con molti scomparti. L' unico difetto è che è pesante a causa del materiale usato (cordura 1000 denari), ma se si vuole uno zaino robusto questo è l' unico compromesso che si deve accettare.
Complimenti ad Amazon per la gestione della spedizione. Arrivato un paio di giorni in anticipo nonostante le feste pasquali.
Great bag, I bough it as a camera bag for my Nikon5200 DSLR, although that according to specification, the camera was 1 inch too large for the main compartment, it happen to fit very well I was even able to add some padding. The bag is well made and confortable to carry.
Great quality as you would expect from Maxpedition. I use this bag for day outings in the woods. Holds a wide mouth Nalgene bottle easily in the side pouch and plenty of room for some gear and snacks in the main compartment.
