Just got back from two weeks in Europe and all I brought was this bag and a small bag for my camera, and I went the whole time without doing laundry (and even had some clean, unused sock when I got back).

As others have noted, this bag lacks any kind of useful small compartments. It is really just a maximized main compartment without any organization--which is what I wanted. According to the specs it is one-inch over the carry-on limit (for Delta Airlines international), and the compression straps are in the correct orientation to get it under that limit. On British Airways it's at the maximum limit in width and height, and under the length limit by four inches I had no problems carrying it on Delta, even on a short-haul KLM flight.

A couple things I like a lot: the zippers are high quality. It was easy to zip it shut, even when stuffed full. Also, the MOLLE webbing makes it possible to attach other things. I attached a hook to hang boots from (Amazon ID B006MY1Q8S), a bungee strap to carry my rolled-up jacket (B007N6TF9G), and even my camera-bag using MOLLE sticks (B00GS78GF0). I was able to carry my entire two-week vacation on my back, hands-free!

My goal was to carry as much as possible without checking any bags, and to avoid any disasters like broken zippers or straps getting caught on stuff. This bag did just what I want. I will definitely be using it on my next trip.

To be honest, I haven't really taken this on a trip yet. But I did just finish packing for 10 days in India and between this and a small shoulder pack, I'm going to have everything I need plus have room to spare. I packed using some inexpensive travel cubes to help organize.

I've got years of motorcycle travel so I'm used to packing small. Still, I packed five pairs of pants, six long sleeve shirts, socks and underwear, a small video camera, a regular camera, a tabletop tripod, a light rain jacket, batteries, chargers and peripherals for all my electronics, and my toiletries. I still haven't put anything in the outside pockets and will use those for the liquid items that I need to take out for TSA inspection.

The zippers feel top notch, as do the straps and fabric. The internal compression bib is a great feature for keeping things from sliding around and the backpack straps will be handy for the trek through the airport between flights.

About the only thing I would add is a window type patch for a name tag so that way you could avoid a hanging tag that will inevitably get snagged on something.

There isn't much to dislike about this pack if you are looking for a maximum-sized carry-on duffel backpack. If you don't max it out, this one will make it into the 22x14x9 airline restrictions (that I usually have to meet anyway) but it can get bigger if you stuff it full and then you'd likely have to check it. It has a really cool compression bib inside that helps keep everything smaller and compressed down so that helps a great deal. It can also be compressed a little more with the outside straps. Here are a couple tips I've learned: I find those straps very useful for things like a jacket and a water bottle, too. Keep your little see-thru toiletry bag under one of those outer compression straps as well and you'll likely have an easier time getting through TSA. They seem to like that being prepared for them nicely in advance that way. If you are a somewhat minimalist packer/traveler like me, then you can easily work with this (48L?) pack for a week or two. It won't fit comfy under the seat in front of you for a longer trip (if you are 6' tall like me) but it just fits max in the little box by the gate and it fits the overheads easily so far for me. Of course, I haven't been near an airport for almost two months now due to the covid 19 but I plan to be using this puppy again soon. Its not the most attractive or sleek looking carry on duffel but I think they all stop looking that way after about the 35L size so that isn't really a fault of the Ironcloud. Mine is in the wolf gray color and it looks really sharp.

It is typical Maxpedition toughness and quality everywhere you look so it should last for many years and handle just about anything. Great materials, zippers, zipper pulls and handles along with nice organization and easily protects my 13" Macbook and iPad, too. It looks like it could handle a 15 but I don't have one of those. Its got some modern attachment options, too, but I don't see the need to attach anything to the outside as its already a very large pack and there is plenty of organization already. The only thing I keep there is a pen honestly. Its not much but that little pen comes in handy when traveling.

It also comes with an unbelievably nice shoulder strap that easily goes on or off if you want to carry it over one shoulder. The backpack straps can tuck out of the way if you want then, too. I much prefer the backpack carry method though but I like tucking in the straps for boarding purposes as it looks leaner and won't snag anything nearly as much carried that way when going through the plane aisles.

Took a European tour for two weeks and took only this bag. The best part was that I was able to carry it on the airplane and it fits into the overhead compartment. Even on a small plane there was no issue. The other three people had to continuously check their bags and pay checked bag fees. Every time we were waiting at the luggage carousel at the end of a flight at least one person in our group would comment about how awesome it was that I didn't need to check my bag. Couldn't be happier. In fact if i would have bought one for my wife it literally would have paid for itself in checked bag fees. Exactly the quality you'd expect from Maxpedition.

My son is former Special Forces and recommended this tactical bag for my travels. Not cheap, but not dissappointing either. I would have gone for the larger version, but I HATE checking my bag and taking the chance of loss and damage, not to mention standing at a baggage carousel when I could already be out of the airport and exploring. Plus, the smaller bag forces me to pack efficiently and not take those unnecessary items.

This Maxpedition bag is absolutely without a doubt top quality.
The materials used for this bag are Grade A.
The bag is manufactured to an extremely high standard.
Plenty of space in the main compartment and there is a section for iPads/Computer.
There are compartments of various sizes in the bag for you to use as you please.
You can carry this bag in various ways to suit your needs and comfort.
This bag oozes quality.
So pleased I bought this bag and i was so impressed I bought another one.
Highly recommended.

Really love this bag it's convertible from carrying over your shoulder to full backpack mode with quality materials and with plenty of space for your tech ect and the rest for you clothes ect fantastic.

Valigia formato "carry-on" convertibile zaino e tracolla, ottima cordura balistica come da standard Maxpedition e ottime cerniere. Buone le finiture. Difetti principali:
- mancanza di occhielli per lucchetto sulle cerniere della tasca PC / documenti (sono presenti solo sulla cerniera del comparto principale)
- spallacci solo parzialmente contenuti nella tasca apposita: in pratica questo modello è la versione compatta del MXRSMBLK 62L (Ironstorm) che presenta una tasca capiente dove riporre ben distesi gli spallacci quando non in uso, ovvero quando in uso con maniglie o tracolla. In questo modello, più corto, si rende necessario ripiegare sulla lunghezza gli spallacci con la conseguenza di creare un voluminoso ed irregolare ingombro sul lato della tasca e, a lungo andare, di rovinare l'imbottitura degli spallacci stessi. Sarebbe stato sufficiente accorciare gli spallacci che comunque sono lunghi ben oltre il necessario oppure creare un "punto di cerniera" non imbottito.
- formato "carry on" internazionale che risulta di profondità superiore a quella massima consentita da alcune compagnie tipo RyanAir (problema rimediabile limitando il riempimento e comprimendo con le apposite cinghie la borsa).

Bellissimo colore grigio, elegante e allo stesso tempo "tattico. Zaino di ottima fattura. Dettagli curati. Capiente ma con la possibilità contenere il volume con le cinghie di compressione. Qualità (ed anche prezzo) Maxpedition
