Perfect Perfect Perfect

This backpack is everything I’ve wanted in a travel backpack. I love the separate compartments that I can store books in, iPad, MacBook, a separate compartment for cords and chargers, sunglasse protector compartment, I added the Maxpadition water bottle holder to it and that’s awesome with an extra pocket that I put protein bars in

My Opinion.

It's a Christmas gift for my daughter who likes hiking, so I haven't used it yet. As always, you guys are on the money with your designs and workmanship so I would not of purchased it if I did not have faith in you or your product. I have purchased many over the years and you haven't let me down yet.

Awesome bag

This bag was exactly what I was looking for. It offers the the potential to add items to the bag depending on your need. Perfect bag.

Riftcore is a great backpack

Built super tough. I can fit everything I need for the office for the day or for a weekend trip. All my previously owned Maxpedition pouches and accessories transferred over seamlessly. Best backpack I've owned. And it feels super comfortable wearing it too.

Top Notch!

Had to wait a while to put this bag to use. I am absolutely amazed with this new material which was slightly different from my other Maxpedition bags. I live in the coastal mountains with different weather conditions and this material was definitely water resistant and stain resistant to dirty moss and grime! I was able to just wipe clean and travel to the airport where you could tell this bag combo with my other Maxpedition backpack was clean and professional looking with a side of Tactical. All the pockets and zippers are at the highest quality and never failed. I often use this bag as a front chest mount, and a full backpack on the back shoulders. This bag was easy to alternate and comfortable between left or right shoulder carry for front or rear applications!! 11/10
