    Default Time for a new bag

    It's time for a new pack. I've been looking at Maxpedition but would like to know your opinions. Any others I should look at?

    Size and use would be a good idea, but since I don't have that, I'd say maxpedition is good, I've got one that I love. Anther would be eberlestock. They've got some sweet packs, be sure you try one one first, I found that the one I wanted for a long time didn't fit me in the waist belt area (rode too high) eberlestock is pricey, but really cool.

    It will be my EDC bag. I'd like a medium to large size.

    I like the eberlestock line of bags. Don't have my own yet but checked out a buddies and they are nice. Very well made.

    Stay with Maxpedition! I do. Try looking at the Gearslinger ambi models. I have the Remora, but its smaller, they have two larger models that should fit the bill

    Thanks for the replies. I was looking at the Kodiak thinking it may fit my needs. My concerns was to only make this purchase once and to get quality.

    Been using a specops brand 3day assault pack for many years in acu. Its survived combat, never ending road trips across the country n pits chewn on it. Remains somewhat servicable. $99frns when new.

    A bit heavy for some maybe. Not a fan of acu for anything tactical, it reminds me of digital confederate grey. Yall seen the new storm trooper vertex, hehe!

    Been rockn the atac au n lovn it. It has more green in it than the pics. The FG, isnt.

    511 has a new grey been lookn at might b called storm.

    Worth your while: http://www.rei.com/outlet/c/hiking-backpacks


    I would have suggested a Marmot model I travel with 18wks a year, but REI is sold out of it now. I have had Maxpedition and a few other of those over-built, expensive branded packs. I still have a Versipack. Honestly, for civilian life, I don't see the point in carrying around 1000 denier stuff. It's heavy and needlessly overbuilt... and carries a premium price. My Marmot is 600 denier and does just fine. My Osprey is 200 ripstop and it's been on my back for 5 treks up 14K foot mountains and still is in one piece.

    I don't think the "tacti-cool" stuff has much value.
