The Maxpedition GearSlinger series is Maxpedition's premium line of single shoulder packs that bridge the design and functional gap between their classic double shoulder strap packs and Maxpedition's uniquely innovative Versipacks.

The single shoulder design allows faster on-and-off, particularly over your LBV (Load Bearing Vest) or body armor and are superior to normal backpacks in terms of balance and comfort when using a single strap. While there are other "messenger" bags on the market, Maxpedition packs promise much more durable products with all the bells and whistles needed for life on the battlefield or in everyday urban use. You can expect the Maxpedition quality and "thoughtfulness" you have come to depend upon and love.

The Maxpedition SITKA Gearslinger pack is a single shoulder backpack designed to maximize utility when rotated towards the front of the body and is worn over the left shoulder for better weapon shouldering. These Gearslingers can be worn in front where the contents can be comfortably accessed while sitting down.

The built in water bottle pocket is sized to fit a 32oz Nalgene bottle and you'll also find space for your favorite 100oz hydration reservoir. This Maxpedition pack also includes theft deterrent devices built-in to capture zipper pulls. For attaching additional accessories, this Maxpedition backpack has PALS modular webbing throughout. Its top and side handles make it easier to carry both vertically and horizontally.

    VERY WORTH the $$$
    The fit, and build of the bag is great. Every pocket and section are well placed. Good for B.O.B , or day camping, to hiking. or even an everyday pack for school or work. TUFF design , will last much better than the cheaper versions.
    Prosdesign, construction, versatility
    Consprice, BUT WORTH IT

    You've gotta one-strap it to be cool
    This pack, despite what some have claimed, is extremely comfortable even with its single strap. Being only large enough for essentials, provided the bag isn't weighted down with 40 or 50 pounds, the Sitka Gearslinger is a bag you can wear all day. I use mine as an EDC bag. The water bladder pouch holds my tablet, a journal, and my schedule. The main compartment holds fire-making items, 4 Glock 17 magazines in a milsurp pouch, a heavy-duty Mora knife, and my shelter kit. The outer pockets hold my medical kit, a Leatherman, a spare folding pocket knife, and whatever other small items I find myself toting around. The top, outer pocket has three elastic loops, each perfect for holding an Altoids tin or a small tin of Burt's Bees hand balm. The front, lower zipper pocket (the one whose zipper-pull can be secured with a snap) holds a bandana and a pack of wet wipes. The water bottle pocket does hold a 32oz Nalgene bottle very securely but, as I carry a 64oz Klean Kanteen bottle in a Wilderness Innovations pouch with a canteen strap for a sling, I use this pocket to hold a few types of paracord, a big jank of jute twine, and a 1" wide roll of Gorilla tape. Even with all this stuff, my bag weighs under 15lbs and can be carried very comfortably all day. Even better, the strap doesn't interfere with my Glock 17 carried on my right hop in an IWB holster. The only feature I don't use on this pack is the second strap; a small one that snaps into a buckle on the main strap. However, it tucks away rather handily into the water bladder compartment so it's there if I ever need it. I was hesitant to try the one-strap pack but am glad I pulled the trigger on this excellent Maxpedition bag.

    Good Bag
    A little awkward at first with being the single sling but it's nice at the airport not needing to take it off to access your stuff. Also kinda small it would be hard to get a full change of cloths, besides that it's becoming my favorite bag. Glad I caught it on sale.

    Well built pack
    As with all Maxpedition gear this pack is built like a tank. It is comfortable if you don't over load it. I use it for an EDC pack. It carries everything I need for my day to day needs.
    ProsWell built.

    Good product, but doesn't fit my needs.
    I was looking for an EDC bag to replace my Hazard 4 rocket sling pack. But it looks like i'm sticking to it. The Stitka is at a good price as well as a good bag. LAPG always has good deals and service. But the bag doesn't hold enough things for me to EDC. I carry bottled water, 2 packs of jerky, 2 granola bars, magnesium rod, matches, Anker cell phone charger with cords, Huntsman swiss army knife, small first aid kit, hand sanitizer, baby wipes, mini brass compass, back up benchmade mini griptilian, a Taser with 3 cartidges, hankerchief, tie wraps and burts bees lip balm. I can carry all this which is great. But I sometimes EDC more depending where I go. I can't carry anything else without bulging the bag or really compressing it. If I put a sweater and extra clothes it starts to intrude in other compartments and hard to zip up the bag unless I crunch or compress things to where they get wrinkled or damaged. It also allows you to wear the bag ONLY with the strap on your left shoulder.I prefer the right shoulder since I'm right handed. Thats a drawback for me. I actually prefer it to be ambidextrious. I would recommend this bag for someone who carries less than me. Its also has good seperation to compartmentalize things. But doesn't fit my bill..
    ProsWell made Good price
    ConsNot enough storage space Not ambidextrious

    My favorite sling pack
    I needed something smaller than a 3-day / assoult pack for traveling in the US and overseas. This fit the requirement perfectly. I did not need to store my large laptop PC, but it would fit a 13" laptop just fine. The Velcro panels inside have yet to be used, but I am looking forward to it. The speed which you can transition from the bag ON YOUR BACK to RESTING ON YOUR STOMACH is mere seconds. It is so nice to not have to take off the pack (like 2 strap type bags) to get to the most used items.

    Great bag for CCW and EDC items.
    I replaced a Fatboy shoulder bag with the SITKA gearslinger bag. Good cross-over design between a small backpack and a shoulder bag. Low profile and does not draw unnecessary attention. Easy to access items without having to remove the bag from your shoulder.
    ProsWell manufactured, high quality fasteners and fabric.
    ConsSome of the pocket sizes are a bit small or odd sized.

    Just as promised. Great bag with good space.
    I carry all my personal gear in this pack in the patrol car. Keeps all my personal items close at hand in a compact pack . Does not take up a lot of space in the front passenger seat.
    ProsLots of interior pockets for storage.

    Well designed bag, more comfortable than I expected, slightly off of my needs
    I can see why this bag is popular and I was excited to give it a test run for my work-commute-edc bag. I carry a Macbook Air 11" as part of my load and I did a dimension check and forum inquiry and it fit the bill. I've had the opportunity to test run and give it a critique. * This is more comfortable to wear than my other slings, probably because it is meant for one-side wear only, not ambidextrous. * Unfortunately, it also means it doesn't sit well unless it's cross-body; my other slings can be carried same-shoulder like a satchel in a pinch. Also can make for an overburdened shoulder in time. * I wanted to use the hydration compartment area as the laptop sleeve for my MacBookAir 11", and it does fit well inside, but the zipper access is too tight making it difficult to pull it out and put it in. This is my main disappointment. If only the zipper were longer. * The organization seems geared more for side access except for the top front pouch. Not really a big deal, just means a little more thinking on where to put some things. * Water bottle sleeve is on the bottom when slung around making it tricky to put a bottle in when slung to the front and I feel they should have made the bottom of the sleeve billowed more so a taller bottle can be pushed down farther. Acceptable as it is but I think they might have done well to just make both sides PALS webbing give us more options with a bottle and other pouches.
    Pros* Comfortable sling bag. * Nice design * Good material and workmanship.
    Cons* Wish the hydration compartment zipper were longer * Bottle sleeve could be improved a bit

    From hiking to every day carry
    This was purchased as an afterthought because it was on sale. I was using a "Fatboy" as my hiking kit and didn't think that a kit could ever get any better but boy was I wrong. This bag has so much space for gear as well as a real comfort level that makes you forget that you are wearing the bag.
    ProsTons of room, very functional, room for my Glock 19 and four extra magazines.
