Maxpedition Xantha Internal Frame Backpack
SKU #: MaxP-9858
Built around a polypropylene frame with a single aluminum stay, these packs are lightweight alternatives to the steel framed rucks of the past.
On top, you will find a soft-lined sunglasses pouch and a sturdy button lock that secures zipper pulls.
Inside you will find a pouch for 100oz hydration bladder, ports for drinking tubes on both sides, and a variety of mesh pockets to organize your gear. On the back, soft and breezy egg crate padding wicks moisture. A padded removable waist belt distributes the load, and handy pouches keep small items close at hand.
The bottom of the pack is reinforced with Hypalon, and has two nylon loops for bedrolls or compression. This is a comfortable pack for day use, rugged 3 day trips, and anything in between.

Took this pack up to winter camp and it was the perfect pack. 3 days on the trails in snowshoes and man is this pack comfortable. My camelbak fit into it perfect and still had plenty of room for my other gear.

Brand new out of the box, loaded for the first time I find the waist strap loosens when moving around. Is this something that will settle when webbing is broken in ?
Yes this should settle down once it has been broken in. please be sure to verify that everything is connect correctly as well.

I've run into this same issue on several maxpedition bags. I fixed it by quickly moving the strap over a candle. The candle heats up the strap then I just held it in place where I wanted it while it cooled. It's easy to melt the webbing thought that's not what you want at. Just to shape it into place. I've done this on several on my bags and it's worked beautifully.

How can the capacity of this pack be 1800 ci, when I own Maxpedition's Vulture II (much smaller pack,) and IT has a capacity of over 2800 ci?
The interior dimensions are where the vulture II becomes a much larger space internally. the Vulture II has an interior dimension of approx. 16"(L) x 20.5"(H) x 7.5"(W). the xantha is 10.5" (L) x 5" (W) x 21" (H). although the xantha is bigger on the outside the internal pocks are bigger on the Vulture II
