    Use as Hybrid EDC/BOB and it ROCKS!, June 9, 2011

    I’m an officer in a mountain town that bought one of these bad boys to double as my EDC and Bug-Out-Bag. First off, this bad is bomb-proof. Gotten snowed on, rained on, placed on wet ground (rubberized bottom is awsome and something I did not see on a lot of other bags of this nature), picked up, put down and thrown around daily. Each side rocks a Max rollypoly (with 32 nalgenes) and cocoon pouch and I also got other supplimentary pouches to pimp it out. The molle system is very handy especially when used with Max strap system. Oh, and the rubberized bottom and top of bag has molle webbing for easy tent and sleeping bag attachment. Tons of space, the picture makes the bag look smaller. Super comfortable straps too. The outter compartment also seems to be the only one on similar bags that can fit a standard metal work folder – this is priceless for easy carry along with my gear. Only drawbacks I can see is that they are made overseas although the U.S. design is damn near flawless. I did not have hundreds of dollars to spend on something like Elberstock and now I’m so glad I did not. Hope the review helps.

    I was an infantry Marine for 4 years. Ive had a few packs over the years and there are differing opinions of what is “milspec” and what isnt. Even though some of the stuff we were issued was junk, i would call this pack “almost milspec”. Its definitely a superstar among the typical Swiss Gear, The North Face, or Targus packs that a lot of civilians are wearing. When i say “almost”, it’s because in terms of “milspec”, i like to see metal D rings instead of plastic ones. Ive also worn out a lot of mesh that covers padding on some packs. This pack has a solid nylon back, but still has the mesh on the straps. It does carry well, even over long distances. The straps have a nice contour to them, even though they are on the thin side. I can fit my 15″ laptop in the hydration compartment, which is a big plus. The waist belt is ample enough to serve its purpose, and can be stowed away in the hydration compartment when its not needed…but then you cant put a computer in there. If you are carrying a computer, you probably arent in need a waist belt like when you go camping or on patrol. I would just sinch it up, buckle it, and leave it out.

    I have actually just replaced this pack with a Spec-Ops THE pack for camping, and hiking purposes. The Spec-Ops pack is what i would consider true “milspec”, for what thats worth, and its a difference that you pretty much have to see and feel to understand. I also have a review of that pack here on Amazon. Nevertheless…I am a fan of Maxpedition stuff, and i own and continue to buy their gear for every day carry situations. This is a great pack, but if you dont mind spending an extra $50 or so, there are better options for more mission specific packs…Try Eagle Industries, Spec Ops, or go crazy and check out Kifaru.

    Tough and tumble bag for any need, May 11, 2011

    This review is from: Maxpedition Vulture-II Backpack (Sports)

    I have been shipping around for a Bug out Bag to carry my supplies for emergency situations and I needed to find a bag that was both affordable but spacious and resilient. I shopped around for a long while and I happened upon the Vulture II bag. I did my homework and from what I gathered it was a a very tough, spacious, and comfortable bag. It was, however, a little on the expensive end ($132 when I purchased it) so I was rather resistant to shelling out that much for a bag but over the course of a couple weeks it became clear that this is exactly the bag that I want.

    The bag has met and exceeded all my expectations. From pulling it out of its plastic covering you can tell immediately that this was one rugged bag, it felt indestructible. Opening it up it revealed PLENTY of space for whatever you could want. There is a pocket for a water bladder if that is what one wants but as another reviewer stated it fits a laptop perfectly if you are thinking of using the bag more domestically. The zippers are a bit stiff on the bag requiring a little work to close and open them but that is of no surprise considering how tough the bag is and that new bags naturally need to be broken in a little. The shoulder straps, with CORRECT fitting, are extremely comfortable and there are both chest and abdomen straps that really help offload some of the pull on the shoulders.

    All in all, I would highly recommend this bag to whomever wishes for a reliable bug out bag, outdoors bag, etc. The bag is worth every penny and I suggest to anyone that, in this case, spending those extra couple of dollars will provide you with something that will outlast many other.

    I feel ridiculous even asking about this, but I’m trying the Electrasol Powerball dishwasher tablets for the first time and the instructions say to place it in the main soap dispenser. There’s an open one, and one that closes, and I’m not sure which one is the ‘main’ one. I don’t have the instruction manual handy and thought I’d try on here first.
