Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack Review

It’s finally time for the long awaited Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack review. I’m exited to share some information with you all. This piece of gear is a sling style shoulder pack is constructed out of state of the art military grade materials… it’s designed as an EDC pack but has so many potential uses.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Maxpedition, they’re known for their exceptionally high quality products. I had high hopes for the Fatboy Versipack and is ended up exceeding my expectations. Even with stringent testing and a critical eye it was hard to find anything wrong with this product.

Maxpedition Versipack Is A Versatile Gear Organizer

The main thing I love about the Maxpedition Versipack is how it can fit just about all my necessary gear in a small, compact bag. I have owned quite a few different backpacks including Durham, Roots and other popular brands. The Maxpedition Fatboy is much more durable and functional and than any other gear organizer I’ve owned.

Extreme Durability You Can Count On:

A few weeks back I finally got my all black Fatboy Versipack in the mail. The first thing I noticed is that the bag comes with a label written “hard use gear”. True to what’s written on the label the Maxpedition Versipack is made of the finest quality materials and is extremely durable. The exterior fabric on the bag is 1000 Denier nylon and has a Dupont Teflon coating. This bag is highly resistant to rips, fraying and punctures even after extended use. All buckles and zippers on this bag are very high quality as well. This bag will be able to take anything you throw at it and has a limited lifetime warranty to back that up.

The shoulder pad is filled with very comfortable foam and is lined with a mesh which allows air to pass in between the strap and your skin reducing heat. The same type of mesh lines the rear of the bag, it helps to keep your back cool and sweat free. Even when the bag is completely packed with gear the shoulder strap and back mesh keep things comfortable.

This bag has so many features I’m still discovering more every time I use it. I just recently noticed the keyper which is basically a key holding clip, I also like how one of the pockets is designed to hold a cell phone or GPS unit and can be accessed quickly. The storm collar is pretty cool as well, it will keep the bag dry when its raining.

Perfect For EDC Gear + Concealed Carry + Mini Survival Pack:

Here’s a list of items you might want to bring out with you in your Fatboy pack: Small first aid kit, your cell phone, a basic survival kit, your keys, wallet, iPod, GPS, Glock 23 handgun, extra magazines, flashlight, plier multi-tool, binoculars, EDC knife, lighter, ID, pen & paper, Camelbak water bottle, snacks.

This pack is the ideal everyday carry. It’s the perfect size, it’s light weight and comfortable for long periods of use. Carrying it cross-shoulder gives you fast and easy access compared to a small backpack. Once you’ve been using the Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack for a few weeks you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner.
