    This bag has potential
    This bag is made with quality materials, stitched well, with heavy duty zippers and buckles. The design of the bag was thought out very well. It's not too big, but big enough to keep lots of gear in. I really want to like this bag, but I'm not yet sure I do... I don't particularly like the messenger style single shoulder strap concept. When I put it on correctly it sits well on my body, but if I want to just throw the bag over one shoulder it feels very awkward. I like the concept of the single should strap allowing me to rotate the bag around my body to access a pistol, but I'm not a fan of off body carry. Granted these are all personal issues and I purchased the bag understanding these issues. I want to give it a chance as it allows me to EDC more equipment than I can fit in my pockets, and much more comfortably. I travel extensively for my job and this bag does a great job keeping my EDC gear organized and ready to go; for example while staying overnight away from home if there were an emergency I can grab this one bag and go.
    ProsWorkmanship, Materials, Design(quick access to off body carry pistol)
    Cons(1) Off Body Carry (2) Maxpedition's Warranty Policy; if this item fails, pray LAPG will take care or you because if you need to call Maxpedition for a legitimate warranty (failed workmanship or materials not abuse) be prepared must pay to send it to them, pay for the repair, and be ready to wait 4 weeks to pay for it to be returned to you... (3) MOLLE, i.e. Militant Look

    Great everyday bag
    I've had my SITKA for a good 3-4 years now. I've hiked with it, ridden my motorcycle hundreds of miles with it, even crashed my motorcycle wearing it and it held up fine, and I use it when I go fly in the helicopter(Navy MH-60R). It's my go to bag. It's great for storing lots of little things, money, ear plugs, notebooks, small pubs, knives, you name it. The quick disconnect feature is amazing if you can't easily take it off while wearing a ton of other gear beneath. The bladder holder is great too, I use it for flying. Agains, good all around bag that isn't bulky at all.
    ProsExtremely well thought out in the design to grab from you back and bring it forward, it's a feature I use constantly. Endless little pockets to store tid bits of items.
    ConsIf you load it up heavy, the uneven weight distribution on your shoulders will start to tire your back out. But I'm talking about wearing it heavy and continuously for 4+hours, not what I think this was really designed for. Don't try to carry more than two 1'' binders in it, it's a tight squeeze, again, probably not what it was designed for.

    Great Bag for light duty
    Great bag! searched around for a "bug home" bag. If SHTF I'll probably be out at work I need to get home to my family ASAP! I have this in my work truck with the essentials to get back to my luv ones. don't need a big'o pack cause that will be screaming "look at me I'm the one you want to jack!" if your looking for a light bag condor, voodoo and 5.11 have nothing like this.
    Proslight, sturdy, many pockets, pouch for your firearm and multiple magazines, great for 1-day trips for diaper bag with out loosing your manhood.
    Consnot ambidextrous, you can only sling it one way- left or right only

    Just what I needed
    I needed a small non-discript way to carry when the clothing I'm wearing will not allow for a IWB. There is room for my weapon and all the other items I need for the day.
    ProsThe size, not to small and not to big
    ConsThe zippers could operate a little smoother.

    Awesome bag
    Works well for a small bug out bag for police. Also use it fishing, packs a pistol well and tons of pockets, found a use for every one. I know well made gear...this is it
    ConsShould be a $60-70 bag, or at least a discount for law enforcement/military

    Pretty Good, like better than the Fatboy Jumbo
    First of all looks more manly than the purse-like Fatboy Jumbo I have carried occasionally for about 5 years. LOL! The messenger bag style is comfortable with little bulk. It will fit lots of gear more than most of the Camelback bags thats for sure and costs less. Lots of Molle attachements and good padding. Fits my ASUS T100 Transformer no problem. The hidden holster is slower to get to than the Fatboy unfortunately. Has a nice carry handle and lots of variety to carry gear. Negative items: If you are carrying concealed strong-side right the design of the bag actually emphasizes the holster which is a huge draw back. The Name tag or morale velcro area is covered by the gear strap which again is a bummer. Overall I'm glad I purchased this bag. Great as a EDC or daypack for a short hike or for daily personal items. Beyond that it really isn't fit for large heavy items. It also looks very paramilitary so its not very discrete....which honestly if you are buying this brand you know they aren't very plain looking. Seems well made so far just like other Maxpedition items I own.
    ProsLooks great Lots of pockets well made Easy to get to pockets without removing
    ConsVelcro patch area obstructed Slow to get to hidden gun area May emphasize your belt carry gun due to design Very paramilitant looking

    Somewhat decent bag
    This particular bad is somewhat decent. Cannot store a lot of items, and for a concealment bag, the material and zippers are too stiff. Tried it for 6 months and got rid of it.
    ConsVery pricey

    Daily use for over a year now...
    I use this as my EDC pack to carry everything I need and this thing is the perfect size. It is well built from good materials. I carry a glock23 in the outer pocker for quick access and the inner pocket fits the pistol perfect. I store a bladder in the hydration section and have not used it filled, but I may give that a try on a hunt soon. The bag also has a map pocket on the inside that also fits a google nexus tab perfectly as well. The smaller outer pocket is perfect for a pepper spray, blade, and multi-tool. I highly recommend this product...even thought its made in CHINA.
    Consa lil pricey, but you get what you pay for in this world.

    Awesome pack
    I've used this bag for edc for a few weeks now and love it. It allows me to keep all my gearorganized in a pack that is not massive. I like the ability too put my CCW in it to with a hook and loop holster, however I don't really like off body carry so I may use that for a back up gun or not.
    ProsLight weight, rugged, water resistant (in average rain), versatile, awesome design
    ConsNone really

    There and back with this pack,
    I have used this very pack on 4 tours now. I had a knife blade pierce the shoulder strap 2 tours ago and my daughter sewed it up for me when I returned home. ( that nasty blade did NOT enter my skin as well : ) That has been the only repair necessary for this unit.This pack has seen several thousand miles now, air, land and sea. Many rain storms, extreme heat and of course dirt. It is still comfortable and performing with no hardware failures what so ever. I have recommended this pack to many men.
    ProsUse it correctly to its potential and it wont let you down.
    ConsYou do not have one yet.

    Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger
    Upgraded from the versipak which I loved. The Gearslinger is BA! I love it. The access is much more comfortable for those quick situations when you need something. I bought this for motorcycle rides but use this daily now. I love this pak and highly recommend it.

    Can you fit a 16" AR-15 if you separate the up and lower receivers?
    5 Answers
    I don't have an AR-15 to test that with, but I'll check with other customers that have purchased this to see if they think it would work. Otherwise you would just have to measure the dimensions of your weapon against those given by the product specs.

    A common AR-15, with a 6 position collapsible stock and 16" barreled upper will not fit. The Maxpedition Sitka was designed for quick access to items and/or a concealed handgun inside the pack. Maxpedition sells a velcro holster attachment that can be placed inside the large portion of the pack. If you're looking for weapons carry, you may want to look into some of the packs from Hazard 4, such as the Hazard 4 Evac Take Down Sling Pack.

    No, not with the typical 16" barrel
    on October 14, 2015
    from Scarborough , ME
    If you want it to zip up and be all enclosed the answer is no. If you don't mind the barrel poking out 9 or so inches then it all fits tight enough to be zippered and secure. I didn't have access to an actual 16" AR but was able to dig up an airsoft M4 carbine, short barrel to take some photos; even these will show a bit.

    Does this bag have a loop or ring to hang the hydration bladder in the pocket?
    2 Answers
    The bladder would not have anything to hang on inside the hydration pouch. The back of the pouch is the loop portion of a hook & loop system. You could use a hook portion patch (not included) to stick the bladder in place on the velcro.

    on September 26, 2013
    Mine had a loop of nylon webbing that a hydration pouch could hang from. There is a small notch in the top of the rear most compartment with a small loop of webbing in the notch. The loop can be accessed from inside or outside the compartment.

    What does "Khaki Foliage" look like? The examples shown do not have color descriptions associated with the images...

    Khaki Foliage is the sixth picture on the product page. It is that one where the bag itself is khaki and the webbing, straps and buckles are foliage green.

    Can you carry a 15" laptop, suspended so it doesn't hit the ground when you set the pack down?
    1 Answers
    This Maxpedition Gearslinger does not have any way to suspend a laptop, so it would sit on the bottom of the pack and would hit the floor when the pack is set down.
