Mil-spec Monkey

The interior is big enough and organized with good padding. Overall it is a good pack at an affordable price.

The Gadgeteer

The overall impression that this bag gives is tough, rugged and ready for anything. The materials from which the bag is composed are lightweight, yet offer they more protection than my items should ever need. The bag’s understated good looks and its ability to be worn in three different ways makes the Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack the perfect bag to bring along on trips – either to another continent or simply across town.
