Your everyday companion

The Pygmy Falcon-II™ Backpack is a compact rectangular urban daypack with distinct military styling and 1100 cubic inches (18 liters) of carry capacity. Pack for a day out or an overnight and take along plenty of water, as the Pygmy Falcon-II is equipped with dual side mesh pouches to accommodate two 32oz / 1L water bottles. 

The Y-shaped compression strap that Maxpedition® is so famous for contributes to the bag's form and structural integrity. The Pygmy Falcon-II has exterior PALS webbing for adding other Maxpedition® pouches and accessories, using #9903 3" TACTIE® and #9905 5" TACTIE ATTACHMENT STRAPS. It's a great everyday backpack with comfortable back padding and ergonomic, supple curvaceous straps and sternum support minimize any stress on the shoulders.


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 pack Everything I expected and more"

willfl2 on 9/1/2014 4:40:33 PM

Comments: This has been a great pack for the past 6+ months of carrying daily. It has also been on a few hiking/camping trips and it is always a joy to have with me. I keep essentials and everyday nice to have items in it and it still has room for an extra jacket or groceries etc. The only negative comment I have is that the top from pocked has just one zipper, it works well but i would rather have two like the main pocket.

"Tough & Compact"

Comments: I've had this bag for about four months and I use it as a diaper/EDC bag. It holds everything I need for myself as far as an extra shirt, chargers, cords, a notebook, and more all in the small front pocket. The larger pocket I leave for my little guy.

"Totally useful....."

Kat Dee on 6/22/2013 3:36:45 PM

Comments: I've had the PF2 for a while now. Got it for work as my EDC, but have taken it on weekend trips, and to camp as well. Added a couple roly polys for wet socks, sunglasses etc, and have plenty of space for a ton of stuff! As a 5'5" female, and shortwaisted, I sometimes have trouble with packs being too long for comfort but this one feels great carrying it one shouldered or two. I'd love to get more Max gear but honestly....since I have this pack, I'm not sure I'll need anymore! LOL LOVE this pack!... More details

"Perfect EDC bag"

Vince B on 5/2/2013 2:28:41 AM

Comments: I bring this everyday to work and fits my lunch bag, blender bottle, a book, pens, knives, external USB hard drive, multi-tool, flashlight, iphone, small medicine/first aid kit. I only wish it had some velcro patch in front though.
