Excellent organization in a narrow profile that stays behind your body

The Falcon-II™ Backpack is the quintessential Maxpedition® product: Durable, ergonomic, and intelligently designed. This medium bodied pack is thoroughly constructed with 1050-Denier water & abrasion resistant nylon; yet its ergonomic shape, padded shoulder straps and sturdy sternum & waist support make it an absolute delight to wear. 

Further examination will reveal that the Falcon-II has layered independent compartments with more pockets, pouches and PALS attachment points than most backpacks twice its size. Pull the dual-directional YKK® zippers and expand the main compartment into a full clamshell opening. 

You'll find that the Falcon-II is surprisingly spacious with room to accommodate your camping essentials and two (2) 100oz/3L water reservoirs. Pack it up and press it down with front & side compression straps, then head out on a hike or overnight with a premium Maxpedition backpack.


Maxpedition Backpacks are built for hauling gear and ergonomically designed to never drag you down. Curvaceous, foam-padded double shoulder straps contour to your chest and a sternum suspension belt helps distribute weight evenly throughout your upper body, so you can carry a load without falling behind.

Made with high quality nylon stitching, self-repairing YKK® zippers and a durable water-resistant exterior; Maxpedition Backpacks have multiple compartments and pockets and offer plenty of space for mission essentials, camping gear, hydration reservoirs, laptops, textbooks and CCW.

"Great Product"

Jake Whitney on 3/17/2017 11:51:13 AM

Comments: Super durable, storage for everything I could possibly want to put in it for a 3-day camping trip. Currently packed as my emergency bag. Added a dedicated medical pack to the PALS webbing just to keep things separate. While I will say I haven't beaten this thing up, I have used it on day hikes and weekend trips, and it's been more than up to the task. Build quality is excellent and, even though it spends a lot of its time bouncing around in the trunk of my car with my jumper cables and spare, it... More details

"9 years and going"

Syd S. on 12/5/2016 8:43:57 PM

Comments: Back in early 2007 got this bag for undergrad, and working EMS. Many college and ambulance years later, it traveled 12 countries and every camping trip I've been on. Boat rides, unaffected by the ocean water the many times it did get wet. Taken it to the range more then I count. Basically have lived out this bag for 9 years, and able to carry about 3 days worth of travel items/clothes (not including food). Easy to upgrade if you don't want to buy the Falcon-III. I switched out to YKK heavy duty ... More details

"Use it every day"

John on 10/16/2016 12:26:04 AM

Comments: I use Falcon II for 7 years now on every day basis. It holds my laptop, electronics, traveling accessories etc. Fits nicely in overhead compartment on plane. Can put 7 days of clothes and accessories needed for a business trips. I also used it for hiking, bicycle touring, sky trips and it performed excellent. I have few other hiking backpacks and never use them anymore. With expansion like rolly poly, water bottle holder and Versipack Proteus it is the most versatile equipment i have.

"Epic pack"

james perez on 3/1/2016 6:58:37 PM

Comments: This is by far the best pack I have ever owned. The quality of this pack is unmeasurable to other packs.. This pack takes a beating and asks for more. Don't by packs that will give out in a year or two. Make a lifetime purchase with Maxpedition. I just bought GYRFalcon pack from Amazon can't wait till it gets here

"The best ruck you'll own"

Austin on 1/18/2016 10:54:52 AM

Comments: It was my first maxpedition pack and I was worried about price and now, after a year the price is in reality cheap for the quality. my pack has gone through, over night hikes, day hikes, ruck runs,school, it's been soaked from rain, thrown down rocks and this pack has had no problem taking anything I give to it, it's super comfortable with the way the straps are padded and curved, and you could really use it for anything. If your thinking about a really REALLY good pack, you will not go wrong wi... More details
