Big 3-day ruck built for larger individuals

The Vulture-II™ 3-Day Backpack is designed for hauling lots of gear. Endowed with 1776 cubic inches (29 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.

Comments: If you have any doubts about buying this backpack, rest assured that you're getting a great piece of equipment. I took it with me to a trip to Moscow and from now on it will be accompanying me everywhere. Great quality, versatility and excellent capacity. Get it, you'll not regret it.

"Exceeded my expectations!"

"Every day carry, never-day worry..."

Robert V. on 3/17/2012 7:24:39 AM

Comments: I have now carried the Vulture II for 2 and a half years virtually everyday. It's been stuffed to the gills, thrown in virtually every vehicle, carried thru swamp, canyon, forest,desert, and even submerged. The 4 separate add on pockets have stayed along for every inch of the trail. It's been sprayed off in a car wash. It has carried a full load of rocks. It's indestructible and still manages to look good enough to carry library books into public. We are a Canine Search Team, and we will continu... More details
