Big 3-day ruck built for larger individuals

The Vulture-II™ 3-Day Backpack is designed for hauling lots of gear. Endowed with 2100 cubic inches (34 liters) of carry capacity, 3 generous compartments, and a wide bottom design; this is the backpack to pack it all into. However, like all Maxpedition® bags, size does not infringe on comfort. 

The Vulture-II holds true to the Maxpedition ergonomic standard and comes equipped with comfortable back padding, curvaceous backpack straps, concealable chest & waist straps.

The Vulture-II also accommodates up to 100oz/3L hydration reservoir with bi-directional tube port (not included), and has plenty of exterior PALS webbing for attaching Maxpedition pouches and accessories.  Great for longer hikes, deployment, or buggin' out.

"5 Years and Still Solid"

Marco B. on 1/24/2017 3:24:19 PM

Comments: I've camped several times every year now for 5 years using the Vulture II. It holds what I need for a 3 day hike or portage with the exception of a few things strapped on the outside. It's been through wicked storms and dragged through mud but you wouldn't guess it just by looking at it. I ++ recommend this if you're looking for an all round 3 day pack that can last you through thick and thin.

"Going Strong since 2009"

Doug J. on 12/27/2016 9:44:20 PM

Comments: First purchase the Vulture-II at the NRA show in 2009. For the last seven years this pack has been almost a daily carry for not only for work but pleasure. This bag has more then held up to the severe cold and conditions of the Canadian north to adventures in third world counties. Still amazed at the conditions this backpack has withstood and the quality of this pack and how it's held up. Since the purchase of this pack, I have purchased several other products from Maxpedition With the same resu... More details

"Vulture 3 day pack"

Doj tyler on 3/30/2016 5:15:25 PM

Comments: This pack is the best 3 day backpack I've had. I've owned many maxpedition bags and I love every one but this is my favorite for long ops. The od green works great in the pnw and without waterproofing sprays it repels the rain well. It's also fear it has a rubber bottom as most of the times the ground up here I wet in the mountains year round.

"Superb quality, versatile bag"

Paul Patriot on 11/29/2014 1:07:28 PM

Comments: This is a review after 5 years of hard use, in many different climates. Bag still looks like New, with only very minor fraying of material on several of the mole' loops. Zippers have been very abused, and still work as new. I now use this as a mountain biking pack, or a pack for a day trip. Great for anyone wanting a tough bag for many roles. My only suggestions for Maxpedition would be the following: Extend the length of bag, ( or offer different lengths) so that waist straps are at or below th... More details

"Stands the test of time and travel since 2008"

James B. on 10/12/2014 5:06:27 PM

Comments: I purchased the Three Day Bag in February of 2008. I travel for a living and do much adventuring while on the road as well, from deserts, to mountains, to the coast. This bag carries tons and is great for CCW while on the road. The bag shows only minor wear in the 6.5 year I have had it while hiking and dragging it behind my rolling bag (it has a reinforced Bottom). I would buy another in a second. My only request is Khaki-Foliage become a option so it looks a little more civilian and would blen... More details
