Anyone own a Maxpedition Versipack?
#1
I'm looking for a new minimalist home bag. Specifically, I'm looking for a bag that has the following attributes:

- Can be grabbed and hauled off quickly. Also can be taken off and rid of easily in an emergency. I find that taking a well adjusted backpack off requires too much contortion in an emergency.

- It needs to be able to accommodate a handgun of any size safely and accessible. A specific pocket to keep the weapon safely would be a plus.

- It needs to be small enough that it can be brought places from time to time rather than be massively heavy and simply reside only in the car. I work away from civilization from time to time so having certain survival items on my person would be useful for me than for most people in general. I also don't like to leave gear in my vehicle for long periods and never firearms if I know I'm going to be away from it in the field for a few hours.

- Ability to carry other small EDC items you may find in a get home bag, I don't plan on having a hatchet or anything that large in there, handgun would likely be the largest and heaviest item.

- If it is a shoulder bag the "murse" factor must be low Tongue.

- Budget needs to be sub $150

- No fanny packs Tongue.

Given those criteria I'm eyeing the Versipack series from Maxpedition, but I'm open to other options. I'm wondering has anyone owned any of the bags in this series? The Fatboy looks a little small and the Colossus seems a shade large for my purposes when fully loaded. If anyone owns one I'd greatly appreciate their feedback. Thanks for any input!

I've been using the jumbo versipack
like it a lot. Has the concealed carry pocket and enough room for other small items. Get the velcro holster to put in the carry slot there about 9 or 10 bucks, it holds the weapon it place nicely. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...akqIwsXJWs

Although I've since sold it, for something else, it served me well for a year and a half.

For you guys that use this as a GHB, you don't find it awkward that it's not secured to your body?

Actually there is a Velcro closure loop on the back good for attaching to your belt

I carry a Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger with me pretty much everywhere. I chose it because I didn't really like the "murse" look of the versipack.
It's bigger than what you are looking for but I just wanted to throw another thumbs up for Maxpedition.

Thanks...that's cool as long as it's fairly secure if the need arises.
