It is a great backpack at an affordable price. It is a versatile shoulder bag with great usability.

Mil-spec Monkey

It is a great design and unique shape shoulder bag. The size of the bag is large enough to carry camera gears.

The Gadgeteer

The Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack is a great option for someone that likes a sling-style gear bag, wants tons of pockets and the ability to add even more, but that needs a larger bag than the Fatboy Versipack. The material used for these bags is tough, weather and dirt resistant – I would almost say indestructible.
