A truly exceptional law enforcement patrol duty bag, packed with features inside and out. If you want the best, this is it.
I have used this bag for hunting trips and work trips all over the country. It is big enough to carry a few day trips to another city with ease and works at the range just as well though its size makes it easy to overload for a range trip. As good as this bag is you are paying a premium for the name and materials but that being said i've never pulled a zipper out or busted a stitch so Maxpedition seems to be doing something right. This is my fourth of their bags and they have all been built to an exceptional level of craftsmanship.
I've been using this duty bag for just shy of 2 years. It's been put through the rigors of daily use in and out my personal car and patrol cars, thrown around on my front seat to floorboard while pursuit driving/responding to calls (I don't buckle it in). Loaded up with all kinds of gear and paperwork. Quality and material is still in excellent condition, no problems with zippers or anything. It's stiff, so the walls don't collapse in or out and everything stays where I need it. Highly recommended, especially after seeing my coworkers bags from other brands all fall apart. You get what you pay for and in my experience Maxpedition makes great gear. Expect to keep this bag in service for many years to come.
I've been using this patrol bag at work for about a year and it holds more than enough equipment to get me through the day. I don't ever think about treating it with care, I pull it up from floorboards and out of truck beds by parts that it's not designed to be pulled by. I abuse this bag and not only does it hold up to all that, it looks good doing it.
I'm a police officer who's been using this bag for about 2 weeks and it's awsome. After I bought the Centurian, I started to notice the like-bags (read: cheaper) that other officer use &, once again, Maxpedition seems to be in a class by themselves. For example, The Centurian has starched-type handles that keep the straps from getting circle-wrapped. That's a feature none of the other bags have & something that really annoyed me about my old bag. I even found a secret place to hide an extra handgun!
This is my second Maxpedition purchase and I'm very impressed with the quality of construction and versatility. I am using this as a soccer bag and it holds all my gear, a variety of other accessories (including a Maxpedition First Aid bag) and two 32 oz water bottles with ease. This past weekend, the last ten minutes of my match was stopped due to a thunderstorm. The contents of the Patrol Bag remained dry in spite of the bag being subjected to a deluge that lasted at least 20 minutes before I was able to secure the bag in my car. I expect this bag to last many years.
I keep about 30 lbs of gear in the bag, and it gets tossed in and out of cars almost daily. I've had it for about 3 years, and no issues. Zippers are heavy duty, and the stitching is holding up great.
I use the heck out of this as my primary range bag. I load it up with many pounds of equipment and ammo and it's been going strong now for over a year. Well designed and flexible storage compartments. Can't say enough good about this bag or think of a single detractor. Sure, it's not cheap, but if you need a serious bag for your serious gear, get this one and have no regrets
Waited a while before posting about this bag - it was expensive for a patrol bag, but well worth the $. So far this thing is durable, functional and surprisingly roomy. Used every day, I've experienced nothing but good - with several compliments along the way. The zippers are strong and appear to be lasting with no issue. Very impressed with Maxpedition for this one!
well made well designed
Ich besitze die Tasche seit einem Jahr und nutze sie als Range Bag, da der Hauptreißverschluss abschließbar ist.
