"Awesome hunting bag"

PA Bowhunter on 4/26/2011 4:48:30 AM

Comments: I bought a Monsoon Gearslinger to replace the Jumbo Versapack I was using as a hunting bag. The Jumbo worked well but I needed a bigger bag to carry more stuff. The Monsoon is a perfect hunting bag because I can access everything in the bag without taking it completely off my back and it's easy to put on when I have to move in a hurry. The rear hydration pocket is great for keeping extra clothing dry and accessable. I liked the Monsoon Gearslinger so much that I bought a second one for work to use as a computer bag.

Comments: I'm someone who always carry's basic survivalequipment, just in case. I take my bag wherever i go. I've used this gearslinger for a couple of months now. as a everyday carry and as a survivalbag when i went out into the woods.there is always a rollypolly on the side, so i always have extra space. The maxpedition spartan-wallet fits perfectly in the pocket on the waistbelt, so when you are in a croud no one can take is out of your backpocket, and you can reach it easely. i can go on and on forever about the great things this bag offers you. it is the best bag i've ever had.

"Fantastic Pack"

Moka on 3/21/2011 3:29:17 PM

Comments: This thing is perfect! I can't fault it in any way... The PALS webbing all over is handy for carrying a canteen, in addition to the water bottle holder. The Compartments are plenty big enough for everything I need to carry for a day hike, and the PALS on the shoulder strap allows me to carry my GPS and CB Radio for easy use, and finally the webbing on the waist strap is in the perfect position for my knife in nice easy reach. Fits perfectly, so comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

"Get one."

Matt White on 3/12/2011 2:54:58 PM

Comments: Excellent from top to bottom. These guys have their sht squared away. Fast delivery, and product delivers as promised. For a grab and go application, this bag is sized well, holds plenty of gear, and is built like a sherman tank. Best feature; you can keep it on and never miss a beat, just keep moving. Nice work guys, well done.

"The everything bag"

Paden on 3/2/2011 1:22:17 PM

Comments: I got the monsoon to serve as my do everything bag and thats what it does flawlessly. EDC'ing it in my truck, hiking, hunting, or just going somewhere it keeps all my stuff neat, secure, and readily accessible. the CCW compartment is a great feature and allows you to put a full sized pistol at any angle for fast deployment; and it keeps that big pistol out of the sheeples' sight on the hiking trails. I love how modular the bag is there is plenty of space for more pouches and organization as well as hidden pockets. There is nothing that disappoints me about this pack.

Comments: I am a Native American Male. I have about a 53' chest. Built like a tree stump basically. I was worried about Monsoon being tight across my chest. I bought a Janus pouch to interlock with Monsoon for a bigger fit. No need to. If you are big or small the pack will fit great. I recommend the Janus anyways. Great pack and pouch combo!

"Versatile bag"

Dan Robbins on 2/2/2011 9:41:21 PM

Comments: I pre-ordered one of these when they first came out and wasn't disappointed. It was my first Maxpedition purchase, and I ended up buying a Rat wallet for the belt, and a (discontinued) pouch that was a Barnacle next to a sheath. I put that one on the side opposite the water bottle. If I had a criticism it would be that, the modularity is addicting! You'll probably end up with a few different Maxpedition pouches because they work so well together. I found it essential to have more small/mid size item storage for the bag. It doesn't have a lot of mid size compartments, though the belt zip pouch is great for your wallet, and there is a nice zipper pouch on the inside. The concealed hydration pocket is very handy. The water bottle holder is one of the main reasons I got the bag (and the waiststrapit REALLY takes the weight off my shoulder). I added a camera pouch to the front strap and it is so comfortable taking it out in that position. I have hiked for 5-6 hours and not felt any soreness. Also, the compression strap system and front flap is ingenious. Carrying a Frisbee is essential to me so this works perfectly secured this way. You can still fit the jacket, and yet attach a pocket to the flap as well. You can have so many different load outs with this pack. I stuff oranges, water and heavy stuff inside the inner slip pocket. These weighty items end up riding perfectly on the small of my back, aided by the waistbelt which I wear snugly. The bag is very comfortable, though I have to tighten the shoulder strap nearly all the way. I use the waistbelt almost all the time, as there's usually more than a few pounds of gear, water, and food inside. When there aren't a lot of items inside I can cinch it down very small and tuck the waistbelt away. It looks spectacular. I got the black and I love it. I can even take it on business. I just bought an FR-1 for the inside and relocated the Rat to the FR-1. The Rat ended up getting in the way of my left arm when it was attached to the waistbelt. The Monsoon does not hold rectangular items as well as some other bags, but I found a Saunders slim case/clipboard that fits great and holds my essential music papers. You can stuff a surprising amount of gear in here with ease, and the teardrop shape drops the weight into the small of your back. When you need something, just loosen the shoulder strap and swing it around. It is an amazing design IMHO.

"Very durable!"

Merk on 2/1/2011 5:50:36 PM

Comments: I have been using this as a school bag for a year now, and it has seen a lot of abuse(including getting thrown down a flight of stairs TWICE)and there is no damage at all. The bag looks awesome and is very comfortable!

"Awesome Pack"

Ron Davis on 1/13/2011 4:31:41 PM

Comments: I carry this pack to work everyday.It keeps my dayplanner and my GPS. It keeps everything dry and very easy to get to.

Comments: Incredible bag, the best I ever seen. Very reliable, usefull, confortable and... gorgeous !

"Amazing Bag"

Frederick on 1/10/2011 6:17:50 AM

Comments: The Monsoon Gearslinger is the most durable bag that I have ever owned. It has lasted through hiking trips, cross country plane rides, everyday use to the local university and even as a makeshift diaper bag when I had to take my toddler with me on trips. Its flexible enough to hold everything securely. It will not be my last purchase from Maxpedition since I am now looking for at the messenger bags to carry my oversized laptop.

"thank you"

Joseph Kramer on 1/6/2011 11:58:56 PM

Comments: This is a thank you for the reviewers. I was looking to see if it could carry my 13" laptop and a reviewer mentioned 14" to 16". THANK YOU. I think the web site should mention itself the largest rectangular item it could hold but the reviewer came through!

"THE Bag"

Ryan on 12/10/2010 6:12:53 PM

Comments: I've had my Monsoon Gearslinger for well over a year and I freakin' love this bag! Not only is it my EDC bag, but it's gone with me from the Arizona desert to the Colorado mountains to the deer woods of Kansas and every place in between. It's great for outdoor excursions, but it's also wonderful to just pack water and an extra jacket and a book or two to the doctor's office or something. And it's so nice to be able to tuck my full size XDm .40S&W in there and be very well armed in plain site even if I'm wearing basketball shorts and a tee. Plus, Jack Bauer wore a black one in "24". How cool is that?!


Dan on 12/8/2010 5:19:41 PM

Comments: This is my second Max product and it is amazing. All I can say is when you get this pack you will be playing around with it for hours just learning about it and figuring out all the different applications it can be used for. It will take me awhile to get used to where all the little pockets and spots are to put things. And there is a ton of room in the main compartment. Great job Maxpedition, this will not be my last purchase.

"Great Product"

Bill McKenzie on 11/26/2010 6:07:42 AM

Comments: Just got mine, Well made, lots of storage, Quick easy access. I'm about to order the Janus pouch that looks like a great accessory to the pack ! I highly recommend this product to anyone.
