"Fantastic bag!"

Comments: I have traveled the world with this bag and it still looks like new! Even with a water bottle holder and M-1 waistpack strapped on the sides it still fit very well under airplaine seats, in overhead bins and beside me flying in helicopters.

"Amazing bag!"

Comments: I've traveled the world with this bag. It has been Thrashed around, thrown into helicopters,airplanes and ships and still looks like new! ( The compact size is especially great for being under airplane seats or in overhead compartments

Big enough to carry the must-haves, but still small enough to be an asset rather than a burden. Easily fits my 12' Dell laptop and a few books, and plenty of s... More details

"Great bag."

Dutch Eddie on 6/7/2013 6:03:12 AM

Comments: I have this bag since a couple of months now. I use it for hiking or a short family trip. It is a great bag and the size of it is perfect. I have attached the maxpedition Single Sheath (digital camo) to the shoulder strap for my multi tool. It looks very nice on the black Malaga.
