User Review: Maxpedition Falcon II Backpack
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110
Great pack for day hikes or if you're into less being more.
- Durability and strength
- Easy modifications with MOLLE system
- Material can be waterproofed
- $100 plus for such a small pack
Had this pack for about a year now, and I really dig it. 1520 cu in, though it's not very big... it makes up for it in other areas. I don't lug a lot of gear out unless I plan on being gone more than 3 days so it really works for me.
The MOLLE system really kicks it up a notch as far as attaching MOLLE gear. I have easy access to my med kit, and a few other items that I've attached. Although it's not your typical backpack, and tends to lean toward more rough use guys. (former military, hunters, etc.) I prefer durability over many other things.
It's just over 2 pounds empty, but the material is tough as hell. You will not have to worry about frayed stiching either. It's been in the thick brush with me, with thorns and tree limbs pulling and snagging on it along the way. Places I wouldn't have wanted to have some of my other packs.
It comes in a variety of colors. It's a great canoe pack as well. I've waterproofed mine, and am very satisfied with it so far. Here are the specs if you're wondering:

- Secondary Compartment: 16"(H) x 8"(W) x 3"(D)

- Lower Front Pouch: 10"(H) x 7"(W) x 2.5"(D)
