Maxpedition is a maker of rugged military specification nylon gear. Their products are favored by military personnel and outdoor enthusiasts. They also serve as excellent travel bags for the Roaddog.
I could boil this review down to two words, utility and quality. These bags have enough pouches and dividers to keep all of your stuff handy. The teflon-treated 1000-Denier fabric stands up to a lot of abuse. I have been using my Kodiak for three years as an everyday bag and for travel for up to two weeks at a time. This bag has been literally dragged through the mud and aside from chipped paint on the metal key keeper, the bag still looks clean and new. Have a look at the video to see just how much fits in this bag.
This review is focused on the Kodiak Gearslinger, but note that all of the same construction and quality applies to its smaller cousin, the Sitka Gearslinger. The Sitka just barely fits a 15″ MacBook Pro and the entire Sitka fits inside the main compartment of the Kodiak.
The Kodiak and the Sitka are available in black, khaki, olive drab green, foliage Green, a khaki/foliage combo and ACUPAT digital camouflage. When choosing a color, please bear in mind that camouflage items are illegal for civilians to wear and carry in some countries. Both the Kodiak and the Sitka come in S-Type versions which are designed for left-side carry.
