    Very basic "gray man" type jansport looking bag.

    I know a lot of people think off body carry isn't valuable, but as someone that can't always on body carry I can tell you that's not true. Personal experience sats otherwise. I appreciate the way maxpedition puts thought and effort into that type of bag. Plenty of regular storage with a dedicated area for your firearm and plenty of room to get to it when you need to while still keeping it concealed until needed. Its also not uncomfortable with the padding they use.
    Maxpedition stuff is bombproof in execution and it shows with little time using their bags.

    Personally this bag isn't "my style" but its not a bad looking bag. Especially at the price point they show.

    I couldn't resist, and I bought one. It's pretty much what they said it would be, a 1000d version of a Jansport. I just wish the compartment separator fabric was a bit more robust...

    I like the pack, although I have enough packs. The hidden compartment is clever, the organization features seem well thought out. All it really needs IMO is an external mesh pocket for a water bottle, and a way to conveniently attach a pocket or phone clip to the pack straps.

    I'd prefer a couple of water bottle holders. Still, the idea of a generic book bag in heavier materials and with a compartment for a bullet-resistant panel sounds good for teachers and students, among others.

    Indeed, side pockets would be awesome on these. Absolutely agree
