Condor Bison Backpack
SKU #: TG-166
The Condor Bison Backpack is an upgrade from our old Assault and Shoulder bag, integrating the sling as a pouch that can be attached or detached. It features a large compartment that uses a U-Shapped opening which allows you to grab things from the bottom of the bag without having to sacrifice the organization you worked hard to achieve. Also it features webbing on the front panel for extra pouches incase you need more than the additional sling bag. The Bison is perfect for any city exploration or hiking excursion.

Good Quality, low cost
I'll try to keep this brief: 1. This is a great pack. I've currently loaded it with my sleeping system, cooking system, water system, Knife/Axe, extra fuel, paracord, and clothing. Total weight is ~40lbs. I STILL have room for supplies. 2. It's comfortable. I'm 6'7" and 270 lbs. This bag doesn't feel "tiny" to me, rather normal. So be weary if you're smaller, this might be overwhelming. The padding for the straps is nice, and the belt is removable. I attach my knife/axe/quick bag/and another larger bag to that holds my supplies, this adds a lot of versatility. 3. The front "laptop or tablet" ouch is somewhat over a nuisance. It's nice and able to be removed. It does however, block access to the webbing behind it. 4. The hydration pouch works great and had 3 ports to run the water through. 5. The zippers tend to "move" around when stuffed so it'll be key to secure them together OR put a carabiner to keep them from moving. Overall it's a great backpack. Tactical Tailor/Maxpedition/ITS Tactical usually state never to buy cheaper Chinese bags due to their quality. I agree, but only if your life depends on the bag during combat. If I were running with this full of my gear and loaded with my combat equipment, I think I would already pick something that's ~$300. It's important to note that all bags might fail, either by a strap ripping, a hole is punctured etc. You need to keep a sewing kit and some fishing line, and it can be easily repaired. And is less than 1/3 the price of competitors bag, you can replace it again if it fails you or decide later if you want to upgrade.
ProsPlenty of room Comfortable Adaptable bottom straps allow for a sleeping roll, really nice. Durable Great for a bushcraft/camping/SHTF/prepper bag. Inexpensive: You can buy one and leave it at home/car trunk as a good goto bag with all your gear
ConsZippers don't stay under load. Inside could use more organization than just one large pouch Laptop/Media bag could be a bit higher Mine was missing a cinch strap/buckle from the other side, didn't catch it at all till I watched the attached video. Make sure its there!

Pack seems decent.
So I finally received the pack after it was backordered. I haven't had it long but I wanted to give my first impression for those looking at this pack. Unfortunately there are virtually no reviews anywhere for this pack. So, let's be honest, this isn't a Maxpedition or another higher-end product; it is a $75 bag made overseas. Having said that, my thoughts are that the fabric seems heavy duty, the stitching seems sufficient and the overall construction is acceptable. The shoulder straps are very dense foam, which is nice, and are adjustable at the top for length - this is the only way to effectively adjust the torso length and to get the hip belt near the position it should be in for longer torsoed people like me. The zippers aren't YKK of course and the pulls aren't paracord, they are more of a shoelace type cord. Easily remedied but another example of the lower cost attributes of the pack. I'll be interested to see how the pack and zippers and stitching hold up to infield use. Once I have some time in with the pack loaded and on and off my back in the woods I will try to update this review. Over first impression is that it is a serviceable bag for the price and I am keeping my fingers crossed for it's durability to impress me.

How do you remove the document bag from the main pack? I've studied and fiddled w/ the little clips to no avail.
The clips are sometimes called "Siamese" clips due to the fact that they open on either side and are connected in the middle. When I got my bag, the clips were stiff and hard to open/close. You should see a small tab on either the top or bottom of the clip. You can open either side. Use your finger tip and pull back on the tab as if you are trying to "spread" it open. If you pull hard enough, it should pop open. Hope that hepls!
