    Thumbs up Maxpedition... Any other fans???

    Just felt like discussing something a little different...

    Recently picked up a Maxpedition Kodiak to replace my 10 year old Timberland backpack to tote around all my EDC stuff.

    This thing is nicer than I had expected and at 150 bucks for a bag my expectations were quite high!

    Liked it so much that I also picked up a EDC organizer which is equally nice.

    Any other Maxpedition fans here???

    If so, what's your favorite product?

    Also, I love the pic threads so post 'em if you got 'em.

    I'll throw up a stock pick of a Kodiak, and try to get an actual pic up soon.

    Maxpedition. Good Stuff.

    I like the CamelBak better because the interior works better for my particular load of "stuff" but I have some Maxpedition attached to my CamelBak exterior.

    Their Black Cocoon Pouch & Their Black Strobe GPS Compass Pouch/Pocket.

    I have another separate smaller Maxpedition bag that I use for additional First Aid/Medical stuff.
    It is working out very well to hold all of that.

    You should buy some Grimloc Carabiners for your Maxpedition bag. They are a great way to hang some things off of your bag that you can get on and off in a hurry. You should be able to buy them 4 for $20.00 on Ebay.
    Naturally you don't want to be walking around with items clanking around on the outside of your bag but, it is possible to utilize space on the outside of the bag and you can work out so that things do not swing around.
    I use those cloth braid covered elastic bands that females use in their hair for their ponytails.

    I have one product and like it. May need to pick up a backpack or go bag sometime though.

    I've been thinking of setting up a FAK that is in a standalone bag so I can easily transfer if needed...

    QKS: Which bag are you using for that purpose???

    I'm considering the FR-1 pouch.

    What's really bad is the fact that I'm liking my Maxpedition stuff so much that I wondered what could be better???

    I have a fair amount of their stuff, it is all fantastic and well built. Tough as nails and while some stuff is a little pricey, well worth it. Last a lifetime kind of stuff.

    I am using the CamelBak BFM with the hydration Bladder.
    I actually got a sweet deal on mine in new condition from one of our forum members who had an extra one.

    I have a Maxpedition Fatboy, but it's collecting dust in my closet. It's a nice manly diaper bag for the husband. For go bags, I prefer to stay civilian looking. There's the family bugout bag in a large hiking backpack, a small Camelbak, and a school kid-looking backpack in the van. I do like giving the smaller Maxpedition organizers for Christmas.

    I considered the fact that this bag might look too "tactical" for a few seconds...

    Before I remembered that I live in rural Arkansas and wearing something that isn't camo makes you stand out!!!

    I use a Maxpedition Spartan wallet every day. I really like it a lot. The bill compartment is a little bit tight getting your worthless U.S. Paper money in and out but, I've got the hang of it now. I would recommend it.

    I have a fatboy and I think a Condor II, yea it should be the condor because it's bigger than their other backpacks.

    My fatboy has been called a man bag lol.

    Haven't added anything to my Kodiak yet as the EDC organizer fits perfectly in an inside pocket...

    But thinking of adding a RolyPoly dump pouch to the shoulder strap.

    Thanx for the vid... very informative!
