This is the pack you strap to your back for a bicycle or motorcycle ride, or the pack you take with you with you on a day hike. The Typhoon is also a great bag for work with impressive internal and external organization. Including a zippered side pouch for your smartphone, a sheath pocket with Hook-&-Loop enclosure for a flashlight or small tools, and exterior front & side PALS webbing for attaching Maxpedition pockets and accessories. The Typhoon also comes equipped with Button-Lock™ security to detour theft.

Curvaceous, foam-padded double shoulder straps contour to your chest and a sternum suspension belt helps distribute weight evenly across your upper body, so you can carry a load without falling behind.

"Spot on"

Steve on 4/30/2016 10:15:10 PM

Comments: I'm a park ranger and have owned this pack for almost a year now. It is a great size for hiking or tossing in and out of a truck. Enough room to carry a couple of liters of water, a few snacks, a raincoat, simple first aid kit, a few tools maps and note book. But that's about it... for the inside! I use the outside straps to carry everything from sleeping bags/mats to chainsaw gear. I recently worked a wildland fire and had a jacket, water, chaps, bar oil, and gasoline just on the OUTSIDE of the... More details

"The MacBook Pro"

Comments: Incredibly well-built and it fits a 13 inch MacBook Pro in a padded sleeve!

Comments: I have owned my typhoon for over a month now and have NOTHING bad to say about it. I was hesitant to dish out $140.00 for a small backpack, glad I didn't listen to that little voice that was telling me it was over-priced, because it is not, its worth every penny. Thanks Maxpedition!! ( if you are looking at the pictures at this site, the Typhoon is not "boxy" or "square" as the pictures seem to be. )

Comments: OH MAN this pack is nice! I own a couple Gearslingers that I never thought could be topped, but the Typhoon has done that and more! Not to small, not to big, and double straps...perfect!! Thanks MaxPed..customer for life!!

"My absolute favorite Maxpediton!"

bscalzo130 on 7/28/2013 6:55:41 PM

Comments: I recently discovered this backpack, thougt it was a gearslinger, and I have onwed five different gearslingers to give them a chance, but none felt as cofortable as a two strap pack. Onwed Pygmy Falcon 2, but it was just too big for my needs, but the Typhoon is a perfect fit. I like how it is shorter than my torso, so no issues when bending, straps are uber comfortable, and capacity is perfect, it's like Maxpediton made this pack for me!
