"Most versatile bag ever"

bRice on 11/21/2014 8:47:39 PM

Comments: As a bus driver, the magala has served me perfectly with my EDC requirements. Water supply, cash tray, paper work, rain jacket, mini FAK, etc all fit in there and all giving me space for more ofmy other odds and ends. Also fits a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 perfectly which is absolutely brilliant. Almost like the back slip pocket was made for it. Its adaptability with all the weird situations that i put it through has been uncompromising. It IS the perfect EDC bag...but. Only complaint is that im a ... More details

Comments: Worth every penny, I use my Malaga everyday. It carries everything I need for school, (I am a middle school teacher) which includes either my laptop or my iPad or both. It's modular ability has allowed me to attach a Rollypoly pouch for my lunch and a 10" x 4" bottle holder for my drink. I even use it on the weekend for day hikes. It easily carries my rain gear, food, and a 2 liter hydration pack. Other teachers and students always ask me where to get this bag. Maxpedition!

"Great EDC bag"

Jake on 4/7/2014 5:51:28 PM

Comments: Maxpedition quality is second to none. I looked at several gearslinger type bags before I decided to go with the Malaga. You get what you pay for. Don't let cheap prices for inferior Malaga type bags fool you. Maxpedition is absolutely the best and will last a lifetime. I carry my Malaga every day and it still looks new. I will be getting the Lunada soon to replace my old hunting backpack. I would love to see Maxpedition add Realtree camo to some of its products.

"Wish I Had Got It Sooner"

Jay Hercules on 2/10/2014 12:09:45 AM

Comments: I had off brand version of the LUNADA before this. I use a bag for my EDC stuff because I carry tools for work and I am a diabetic. My knock-off version was stolen and to replace it I got this bag. WOW! The difference in quality is amazing. GREAT BAG, GREAT QUALITY I am now a Maxpedition Convert for life!

"Fantastic bag!"

Sev on 1/5/2014 1:46:34 PM

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.
