Thx - looks worth checking out.
This is a discussion on Versapak Jumbo.. a great option within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Here is a nice carry-all/bug out bag with a CCW option. Resonably priced as well. http://www.maxpedition.com/product/product_vp_jumbo.htm...

That's not bad at all.
Looks like good quality. I checked out the other photos.
Looks like a lot of thought & labor when into making that.
Ok, who is going to buy and test this for us?
When just out kicking about in the woods I've always like bags like that.
Used to use a old Mussete(SP?) type bag as a youth and I've got one old surplus bag, Norway or Swede, that I use for my AR mags.
However though I'll bet top notch quality that price still gives me pause.
But that's retail I assume and my last Blackhawk Omega vest cost me half of it's retail price.
its not for me but thanks for the look at it anyway
Kind of a big, burly "man purse." Looks awful handy, though, and seemingly a good option for a BOB. Good find - maxpedition is pretty nice stuff at a reasonable price.

Here is a good in-depth review with pics:
Here is the URL for a dealer that carries the Jumbo for $59.00. He accepts PayPal and shipping is cheaper if you purchase off his website. Mine was delivered in just over 28 hours!

Unlike a backpack you can access the stuff inside this without droppin' it. BUT.......I am too use to a BP(and way too old)to change. A BP will stay put better than this type also. I'm sure that they will sell a ton of these though. Just not for me. --------

Well looks like the actual selling prices are a bit more reasonble. I think they also carry them in the AG Russel catalog or one of the other versapacks. When I go pick up one of their new versions of the Sting I'll see if they got one in their showroom.
I like them too, and I waited to buy until the jumbo came out, but then found out the main compartment still isn't big enough for my laptop. I really wanted that one but will probably end up getting the new model, the "Operator Tactical Attache".
There is a Red Dot/ 5.11 Tactical store in town now and I checked out some of the other Maxpedition products. They seem to be pretty tough.
I have owned and used the Maxpedition Jumbo Fatboy for about three months now and I am quite entusiastic about it for a number of reasons. First, the quality of the piece is absolutely outstanding. The stitching is even and tight and the bag is, overall, just as strong as it can be. Should last a lifetime as Maxpedition makes excellent stuff.
I have been having health/medical problems such that carrying concealed IWB has turned into quite a chore for me and the Jumbo Fatboy has been an godsend for me. It has a large concealed carry pocket that will allow for just about any reasonably sized gun to be carried and accessed with ease. The compartment is zippered and is not for those who want a "fast draw" option but it works plenty well enough.
Once a gun and extra ammo are stored there is still a "ton" of extra space to carry whatever the imagination wants to carry. It can even carry a 32 oz nalgene sports water bottle with no problem at all.
On the shoulder the carry is light, comfortable, and allows for easy, quick access.
I recommend it without reservation.
