The Y-shaped compression strap that Maxpedition® is so famous for contributes to the bag's form and structural integrity.

    Pygmy Falcon II is pretty good!
    I bought this last summer, and I hiked A LOT with it, here are my thoughts: - side pockets: the side pockets are the primary reason I bought this, each holds a Nalgene 1-liter bottle perfectly - small 'backprint': when it is hot and humid, you don't want a big pack, this is small, leaves a small footprint on my back - smaller than most: this isn't as big as other daypacks, however, I could easily carry (4) liters of water, (2) in the side pockets, (2) in the main compartment. Also carried lunch, small first aid kit, flashlight, bug spray, rain jacket, not much room for much else - small size translates to greater mobility/flexibility when scrambling, bouldering - stiffer than most: as others have said, the material is heavy duty, and quite stiff. It will break in over time, but my Kelty Peregrine 1800 is much more comfortable (but also sweatier)
    Pros- side pockets - really tough, well built - simplicity: no belt straps, don't like 'em, don't need 'em for a small pack like this - great mobility for scrambling, bouldering
    Cons- stiff material, somewhat uncomfortable at first

    Like all Maxpedition products this pack is made to last. It is a little smaller than I pictured when I ordered but works great for what I bought it for. I already had a 3 day pack, I just needed more of an EDC pack. I used it for day hikes in the Rockys while on vacation and it worked great. My main reason to purchase was for everyday carry to and from work. My ipad fits in it nicely as well as EDC items. Great Pack!

    Has any tried using this back to carry a Keltic sub-2000 gen 2 in the folded position? The dimension look like it should fit, but I would like to make sure before ordering it.

    I’m sorry I was not able to find the answer to your question. The best thing to do will be to compare the measurements of your Keltec to the measurement’s of the bag’s interior. I have put your question out to our online community so hopefully someone who is using this bag can shed some light.

    Is there anywhere i can place my patches on this bag?
    4 Answers
    There is not a velcro area for patches on this bag.

    No there is not as it comes. I sewed some velcro to the outside next to the buckle and am now able to have a couple of motivational patches on mine.

    It does not have velcro for morale patch attachment. I ended up purchasing a slick little pocket attachment from Mil-Spec-Monkey, in collaboration with Tactical Tailor, that fits niceley on the webbing on the front of the bag. The bag was purchased for my son and the patches are a hobby that I am getting him started on.

    No there is no hook and loop patch spot , but there is plenty of area that you could do it yourself.

    Does the have the same hook and loop conceal carry pocket as the Falcon II?
    3 Answers
    No. the Pygmy Falcon II does not have a dedicated concealed carry pocket.

    No. I happen to have both packs and only the Falcon II has the conceal carry pocket, NOT the Pygmy. Both are excellent, high quality packs. They Pygmy, as inferred, is slightly smaller with less space. I use it to haul a small laptop around with other work related items and it is perfect for that with room left over.
