"It's great! the only problem I found is, one of the straps at the sides got messed upafter receibing the item with no reason, and I don't know how to fix it.But the backpack it's perfect."

"Cool four way zipper so you can open the bag when seated and get to stuff on either side or top without it all spilling out. Most bags have two zippers, but with four you can lots of access to your geat when riding on a truck so you can grap something without hoisting the bag into your lap. Nice rugged pack that looks just like the military pack but costs less. Nice pack because it is designed to carry lots of gear and still put more Molle pouches on the outside as well. Inside has a little office area for note pads, pens and such. I could not think of an improvement except to have more colors to pick from."

"I bought this pack not wanting to spend the money on a more expensive brand name. The pack arrived and one of the (very flimsy) plastic buckles were broken on the shoulder strap. CTD was happy to send me a new pack, but the second one had zipper problems and would not stay closed. My pack does not have to be made of steel, but it needs to do two things: stay on my back and hold my stuff inside-these two did neither. I sent the second pack back and told them not to bother with strike three. On the upside, the pack was very well organized and had a lot of interior pockets/pouches so things stay seperate and organized inside the pack. If they could work out the other stuff, this could be a good pack at a great price. Of course, CTD staff was very helpful with my reurns and that part of it went well. Unfortunately, the pack lived up to the company name-Cheaper than Dirt."

"I've had one of these packs for a while now and I'm starting to think I could fit my 2 year old in it. I've packed for a week long vacation in this bag and everything fit. Once packed, it carried nicely on my back. Great product !"

"This pack is great. So many compartments and so versatile that it can be used for anything. I bought it to use for hunting trips but I bought a black pack to use as a carry-on bag for flying because I can pack so much into it and since it has convenient handles that allow it to be carried like a suit case as well it make getting on and off a plane easy. I hope they come out with one in Army Digital so I can get one for my brother who is leaving for the Army in a few months."

"I love to camp, and wanted a pack for all my things. This one is awesome. Very large capacity, and has plenty of pouches to organize all your gear. It has a very comfortable shoulder straps. I can't say anything bad about it... It has buckles and pouches all over it. I love the Molle loops on the pack. It's great for clipping gear onto for quick access. It's made of a heavy canvas material. I have no complaints."

"I swear on my own blood whoever doesn't buy this pack is missing out on some serious awesomeness! It definately pays itself ten times over and then a hundred times more. There's no other pack that can match this in any field. I've used it on trips ranging anywhere from backpacking trips to a two-week-long vacation, and there's nothing else like it. You definately won't be disappointed if you buy this!"

"I purchased this pack style prior to a three month archeological testing and survey project. Ive used this pack continuously for three months with no problems. It holds every piece of equipment I need for the field and then some. The exterior attachment points for extra equipment are superb when I have extended hiking and survey. I have to carry field books, tri-fold military shovel, long tape measures, survey gear, lunch, water, cameras, plus other digging equipment. You cant beat a pack of this type for meeting all your needs."

"I bought more then 30 of these for my SAR crew, and we only have had a zipper issue with one so far, replaced no problem with CTD. We like the pack, although its big...too big for some smaller people. Not a good day pack, but a great 72 hour bag, or for the larger members of our crew who can hump 80 lbs. Built well, and more then worth the price. Well thought out design."

"I got 2 of these packs a black one and the OD one, the black one had some issues with some stitching that came undone and there were no antenna holes where there were supposed to be. other than that these are great packs for the price, I unloaded my large ruck sack into this pack and thought for sure I forgot something because there was so much room left over! holds everything and then some. Has all the features of a pack 3 times the price."

"This pack has it all: multiple attachment points, enough room to pack a 72-hour kit into, smaller pockets for smaller gear, extra room for even more stuff, and even velcro loops to keep extra straps in place. The only problems that I had with the pack was it had no hydration capatabilites, unless you buy a MOLLE hydration pack, and after about 30-minutes of walking/hiking, the right strap popped and I couldn't fix it until we had RTB'd. I'd suggest to buy some Gorilla duct tape just in case, you'll have room for it!"

"This is the best pack I have ever used!When you buy this pack you will get your moneys worth.When I acquired this pack I was surprised at the quality of the 1000 denier nylon thats the same strength nylon used on my Bates USMC standard issue combat boots.I have tried alice packs and other packs for hiking,camping and training but they could not stand up to the test.I took this pack on a camping trip with me I hiked about 6-8 miles and my pack wieghed 61 pounds and I still had load of space.A few (Irish penants)but nothing big this pack is an excellent buy you are missing out if you dont get one.Go USMC!"

"Take a lighter to all the threads before using it and watch closely. The internal pockets are cheap and so is the stitching, but with care, this pack has already worked well for my hunting pack.It is nice to have addon options like the shotgun shell pouches..."

"I bought one of these last fall and have used it twice, but keep it packed full of stuff. In those two uses, one of the interior panels has completely torn loose, and one of the exterior cinch buckles has started to tear loose.It's an alright bag, but you definitely get what you pay for here. Dont expect Maxpedition or Tactical Tailor quality."

"Really Sweet Pack!!! Really you could fill this thing up with supplies and some rations and live in the wilderness for about three days. It has these really cool snaps on the sides which I use to carry a rifle case and the side pouches are the perfect size for a standard U.S. Military Canteen. The inside has adjustable straps that secure everything you're carrying in there and keep it from rattling around. I use this pack whenever I go hiking, shooting, camping, and once used it as a suitcase (It just barely fit carry-on). Only problem I've found is that one of the pull-strings on the zippers broke off but I fixed it easily enough. Would recommend this pack to anyone!!!"

"I bought this pack from another source and then saw it here at CTD. I wasted more than $20! This pack has everything you could need. But id it doesn't, you still have the MOLLE system to add what you want. You can even add a hydration bladder behind the pack's padding and route the tube through the antenna hole. I spent a week in the bush with this pack, plus a few other MOLLE attachments, not just 3 days!"

"I picked up this pack to take with me to Southern Africa for a vacation. When my route got changed up and I was booked to go through the Emirates I decided to leave it at home. I am not USG and did not want any hassles. I have used it extensively since then and love the functionality. Whether for a two day trip out of town, a day hike or as a \"go bag\" in the trunk of my car, this bag is the best I have owned. My MOLLE system first aid bag attaches easily and I always have space for the Camel Back system. Great product!!"

"Earlier this year I went searching for a 3 day pack that I could use as both a day hike pack, as well as a 72-hour BOB. I looked and looked. I ended up at a recreation outdoor shop here in town, and one of the employees recommended this bag. I wanted something comfortable, durable, rugged, and with plenty of pockets and space to load it up. I have found it in this pack. This pack is about 5500 cubic inches, has areas for all your gear. It has flexibility to add a hydration system (which I still need to do). I like the shoulder straps, chest-strap, and hip-straps. It has a padded back so it's very comfortable to wear - however my back does get a little hot. It has grab handles on the top, and sides. Stiching appears very durable. If your looking for a great 72hr bag, or a bag for day hikes, this is it. Yeah - it's military looking, but so what? It's better then those bright green or orange packs for 300 dollars more, with half the functionality. You can toss this in the dirt and not worry that it's going to rip open. For what I use it for, I'm going to give it 5 bullets."

"I've had this pack for about a year now. Used for hiking, hunting and just regular vacations, i have had no problems. I usually find myself packing extra things just for the hell of it. For this price, there is no better option available. Although it does get hot on your shoulders, it is comfortable(soft shoulder straps and good support). What makes it get hot and cause perspiration is the material that makes it so comfortable. So, you really cant even complain about that. It is capable of holding a bladder for water and has a hole for the tube with velchro around it. There's so many options, you can basically alter it in any way to fit any situation."

"I ordered the M.O.L.L.E Assault Backpack a few months ago and I wish I had ordered it sooner. I have used it a few times for day hikes and I am impressed. When I recieved it I took my 4 year old son and zipped him in it, with his head poking out of the top, to judge it's size. It has more than enough room and I can see using it on overnight hiking/camping trips. It's great for the money. I might get my wife one she liked it so much."

"I've been looking for a good BOB/Emergency Kit bag for some time. Something that would hold everything I wanted and be comfortable to carry - without breaking the bank.This is that bag. I received it today - immediately filled it with everything on my list (see below) - and still have some room to spare (which I'll fill with a pair of pants, socks and a shirt). This bag has a great mix of nooks and crannies for compartmentalizing, and well placed exterior compression straps for keeping everything tight. I might have chosen a different setup for the main compartment interior compression straps - but that's an insignificant issue in an otherwise excellent product.For the money - it's the best bag out there, and I'll be ordering another one this week.What I packed:Lrg Fleece BlanketMilitary Poncho (heavy duty rubberized) w/ stakes and bungiesWater FilterJet Boil Camp Stove (+ 3 fuel canisters)Gerber LMF II knifeCamping med kitSignal flaresCompass2-rolls trip wireMonocularFirestarter / lighter and matches3-liter MSR water bladder2 days worth of Mountain House dehydrated food550 cord1 pr thin glovesBalaclavaHeavy fleece neck warmer"

"Good price not so good quality. Stitching could be alot better,most of the traps are comming unstiched from main pack. Inner compartments torn open into outer compartments due to bad stitching. This pack has been to Iraq and back ,and now is in the trash. With some better quality in the assembly this would be the best pack you could ever own."

"As the head of an underwater search and rescue I'am always looking good gear for my team. Saw this pack on CTD and got one for everyone on the team to carry all our dry gear. The team is more than happy with this pack. Jumping from truck to dock to boat these bags take a real beatting. Not one has let us down yet! We only have one problem, we can fill them! It's a great pack, for a great price!!"

"I got the pack and was apprehensive at first but upon examination I was pleased at the quality of materials and workmanship. Pockets galore and enough molle straps to add on a bunch of gear. I will be flying to California in July and this will be my carry on bag. That ought to raise some eyebrows! My only complaint is that the kidney belt is not detachable. It gets in the way when carrying the bag by hand. But great bag."

"I bought 2 of these packs, one for me and the other for my brother-in-law. Mine is olive and his is black. The olive one is a lot better product than the black one, and is holding up alot better. The black one had a seam rip out, has plastic buckles to secure the top of the shoulder straps and the \"antenna holes\" just were not cut into it. Both the packs have had zipper issues, but the olive one not as bad. and both have the cheap plastic zipper pulls on them. They are good packs for the money, just as roomy as the camelback version, you just aren't paying for that brand name. the molle straps are tough and plenty. when i pack this sucker to go to the field i keep thinking i'm forgetting something because i still have room left when all my crap is in it."

"Got this pack to use for school (books ect..) and a few buckles broke and now my main zipper compartment is all messed up. the self fixing zippers came off tracks and can be pulled in both directions with no closing action. major dissapointment!!! My advice... fork up a little more cash and get something better. I have a old metal framed alice pack i use for camping and the quality is amazing got it for 5 bucks no zippers to break only snaps and pull cords. i could not imagine relying on the pack in a war situation."

"This bag is very large. The MOLLE attachments are all over this thing. The two side pouches are such an added bonus. It has Velcro sealed holes on the top and one on the side for a hydration pack. The shoulder straps and the waist straps are at least 3/4\" thick with foam making it wearable for long periods. Plenty of space and rugged. Compare this pack to ones at your favorite outdoors store and you are saving 100's of dollars. I recommend this for any hiker, camper, students, or anyone who needs a spacious, stylish. extremely comfortable pack!"

"You can find many more reviews for this bag on www.survivalistboards.com. This is by far the greatest bug out bag I have ever used. I was able to fit 700 founds of 7.62x39 ammo for my ak in the small front compartment. 5 days worth of foods in the large. Cloths, maps, first aid kit, and literally everything I could think of. Thats not the best part. Besides being extremely durable and high quality, the bag balances its weight and holds tight to you. This bag is the all in one bag any real survivalist would ever want. The price is excellent. My only problem is that the bag did not come with the molle gear break down paper work. So based on its design you are pretty much on your own to figure out where things go. This is a problem for new campers, hikers, and survivalists. I give this bag 5 out of 5 marks. It is perfect."

"This pack holds my scuba gear when diving and all my school stuff around campus at UT. I carry a lot around school cause you never want to go back to the Jeep when you park 5 miles away. It holds everything while being very adjustable. Does not look too big but has so much room I get lost in it sometimes. Would recommend for the price if you want more room then a crappy over priced \"name brand\" pack the wont hold anything and will fall apart."

"Okay, a great pack for less than $50. But I would like to give an important warning- the pack must be tested before using it in the field or having to seriously rely on it, etc. I own this pack and the smaller (3 day pack). Both have served me well over the past two years. Both have also had issues and have needed repair. In addition to the pack I recommend a good sewing kit with thick needles. The major points of concern are the follow- plastic buckles (especially on the shoulder straps) have broken under load. The stitching in the bottom pouch keeps wanting to pull away from the rest of the pack. A home fix (re-sew) hasn't let me down. Apart from these minor problems it is an OUTSTANDING pack. It rides very comfortable on your body and if under load the removable waist belt is a must. It has spack for everything and makes a great, large carry-on. The internal zippered compartments are great for organizing your gear. Two other points of interest- the pack by itself is pretty heavy, the pack also sticks out really far from your body. This is a major disadvantage in CQC or urban ops. I recommend the pack but expect to do some repairs on all of the off-name Molle gear. Note- saw this same line of Molle style gear on a recent trip to Beijing (in the Silk Market) for $13.00."

"While some might say this is a good bug out bag...no, it is good to haul your books in for school or stuff that you will not be counting on this bag to do tough duty. The sewing in this bag is not very good. If you actually use it other than just load it and leave it in your closet you will see that it will come apart on you. It has cheap zippers, (which look great, but they WILL fail with a heavy load and heavy use) the material on the contact portion of the shoulder straps wore through after 2 days in the field, shoulder strap anchor stitching began coming apart and I retired this bag at that point. It barely made it back in from the field. I bought two, one for me and one for my father in law. He loves his, but I noticed it is also starting to fall apart. It is a good design, I also own the Camelbak version and it is the real deal, although quite a bit more expensive. You get what you pay for, don't bet your life on this bag. Actually USE it before you review it."

"I just used the pack as a carry on bag cross country flight from South Carolina to Calif. I got two changes of clothes, toiletries, laptop, Ipod, camera, magazines, battries, etc. in it and still had room. I got a few strange looks from some of the passengers, but so what. I know it isn't designed for laptops but I padded it with the clothes and had no problems. The only problems: the kidney belt is not removable and one of the zipper pulls came loose. I lashed the belt down with 550 and got the pull fixed. Over all a fantastic bug out bag."

"This bag is awesome there are so many nice straps inside of the pack that hold everything in place like the MOLLE hydration pack which fits perfectly and is a nice item to get for it. Also the rear low back pocket fits the CAMP-166 sleeping bag perfectly. I had 46 lbs on the back when i went camping/ hiking with it and the weight is distributed so nice i walk 2 miles and barley was breaking a sweat, accept for my back...it isnt breathable"

"I was skeptical of how well this bag was made. I read several reviews before buying and had concerns about the overall stitching, after seeing several reviews claiming that they had to have the stitching reinforced. I have been impressed with the size and the amount of weight that the bag can hold. The zippers, shoulder straps and stress points all seem to be double-stitched and very strong. I had an exterior strap rip off the first week, but overall I have been impressed with the bag, especially at this price. Similar bags from Blackhawk and Camelback sell for more than 3 times the cost of this bag. I recommend this bag to anyone who needs a moderate-size rucksack for a reasonable price."

"the day i got this bag out of the package the zipper strings came off on 3 of the compartments. with in the first month the main compartment's stitching had come undone at the top of the compartment for about a 5 inch segment. by the end of my deployment every compartment on this bag has holes in it and no zippers left. the sad part is i only used it on one mission to carry an extra 4 small water bottles and 4 extra m16 mags. not more the 10-15 lbs. other then that one mission it held my laptop under my rack and had very little use because of its condition. i do not recomend this back pack for any military members."

"Got this bag three years ago so I guess I can write a review of it now. The pack is mainly used as my carry on luggage and has done well on two trips to Mexico. I have also used it hunting. Nice roomy pack. Can pack all you need for a 3 or 4 day hunt. The zippers have been the only problem I've had. If you over pack, the zippers will come loose. I've been able to rezip and apparently they are using self healing zippers now.This pack has done as well as my old G.I. ALICE medium pack. Worth the money if you are going to use it for hunting or traveling."

"I bought this pack to be used as my Bug Out Bag, while I am able to carry all the essentials it is a little on the heavy side. The pack weighs more than the Alice packs and I would say carries a little less. The up side is that it is heavy duty and comfortable to wear. I also like the compartments unlike the alice pack you can get to the item that you need instead of unpacking it all just to get to the item at the bottom. One last issue that I have is the inner pockets and dividers are made a webbing that snags on EVERYTHING and is a pain. All in all it is a good pack and would buy another should the need arise."

"I bought this bag to go along with my camelbak motherload, and blackhawk ruck. i used this bag on a 2 month long trip to Europe. The bag took a beating and handled ok but after a \"good\" using, the zippers were worthless, bottom was falling out, and foam padding in the shoulders were paper thin. i zip tied and 550'd the bag together just to get it home. Honestly, just spend the money and get a camelbak with big YKK zippers or blackhawk gear. And o ya...this bag is made in china. camelbak and blackhawk are made in the USA!!!"

"Just got the pack and put it together today. It really does look and feel like a great bag. The color matches all my other OD stuff I have and I can put anything I want to on it. You do have to put the straps on yourself, but that takes a total of about two seconds. The nylon seems like it should hold up to most anything I can throw at it short of going thru a deployment. It is not a true GI pack, but im a civi, so oh well. There is even more space than I thought it would have and Ill be getting a hydration bag to go in it soon. I will write a better review once i give it a good field test. Only reason it got four bullets is that i would like to see it in just a little bit tougher material than nylon. But definatly worth the money."

"Detractors listen up! I've read some really ignorant comments here. This bag IS a great buy and when PROPERLY used it WILL give you value and great use.Rediculous complaints like it won't hold 70lbs or that the zippers bust out, or the bag comes apart? Well Menso's it aint made to hold 70lbs get a CFP 90 if you need to carry that much weight! and quit grabbing the zipper pulls and yanking them like your pulling a hummer out of a mud bank in Falluja! Bug out bag? GOOD choice, but it aint gonna carry a PRC88 and 40 batteries! Where the hell do you guys learn this stuff?? Fellas it isnt Mil-Spec cause that would entail they design it to be idiot proof and capable of being thrown out of a C-130 like a LAPES palet stuffed full of Ma Deuce ammo and survive, BECAUSE and I will get an Amen from every old timer on this \"18 year old GI's cant and wont take care of anything issued them because momma and daddy never taught them to respect and take care of something that doesnt cost them anything!\" Let's be reasonable here BOYS it's a reasonably priced, Damn well designed, USEFUL Pack if you use it like it's designed to be used, as a lightweight pack and not a CFP 90 or a Large Alice Pack or a SPADE or ILBE Marine pack. Get real in your complaints and don't show me how Stupid you are by abusing something you paid money for!"

"I purchased this pack for hunting and short hikes. I purchased it in Fenruary 2008. Since then I have used the pack for three hikes and about a dozen trips duck hunting. For duck hunting I used the pack to carry layers of clothing I would shed, some misc gear, and ammo. Total weight when hunting about 15 lbs. For hiking I have used it on three days hikes to haul some water and other day hike items. The heaviest load was Monday July 27th 2009 when I carried 33 lbs. Prior to the July 27th hike I noticed that the stitching around the main compartment was coming apart as well as the bottom pocket. I repaired the stiches and went on the hike. By the time I got home from my hike, the pack had nearly fallen completely apart on the affected seams (with the exception of my repair work.)I called CTD.com and told them about my issue with the pack. They politely told me that I was outside of my warranty and had no help to offer. Bottom Line: I would not buy this pack again if I had it to do over. Save your money."

"Well, some reviews say its not tough, but it was perfect for me. I am in the boy scouts and have taken this on every campout for a year, and purposely over stuffed it to see how long it would last. I could fit 6 meals of provisions, clothing, hand tools, a gallon of water and strap my tent to it (total weight around 25-30 pounds), and it has still held up! I have noticed however, slight weakness on the shoulder straps, but its something that could easily be sewed back on if it does become a problem. DEFINITELY will buy again! THANK YOU CTD!"

The only thing I dont like about it is that the bottom of the bag doesnt have much support to hold structure if you have a heavy solid object in the bag. Also the length adjusters on the shoulder straps never held tight so I had them sewn in place because when I am carrying a heavy load I don't want it sagging down on my butt while I am walking."

"bought this item thinking that it would be a tough military pack. i used the pack as a backpack for school as well as occasionaly taking it camping. the first couple of months after getting it one of the upper clips attaching the shoulder strap to the pack snapped so i replaced it with a couple of chain links- worked great. soon the other side broke and i did the same thing. the cheap thin nylon in the outer compartment has ripped completly through and the bottom shoulder strap has ripped a large hole in the main compartment. i tried to fix it with an iron on patch but that soon ripped. the inner waterproofing plastic has also flake off in the areas that are often flexed. I have now had the pack for almost three years and sill use it for school. other than the previous problems no others have occured. the pack works but it was not what i expected when i bought it."

"When you buy a Camelbak wanna be, don't hold this item to the same standard as a high dollar Camelbak. this is identical to the CBK but it is a third the price. I took it to Afghanistan and it did lose some of the zipper pulls and one liners tore loose on the inside but other than that it held up well being tossed around in wreckers, Mrap Cougars and 1151's. It is well worth the money and you can still put a water bladder in it. Just remember it is not a Camelbak."

"I bought this bag while deployed to Iraq in 2005. Since then I've deployed with this bag four more times and used it extensively to carry kit state side. After 5 years I finally managed to blow out the zipper on the main compartment. It's not made out of the same weight nylon as the camelback bag but it also doesn't cost $300. I loved this bag and will definitely order another. I highly recommend it."

"When I was reading about the reviews I was worried that the pack might suck and fall apart but when I purchased the pack I noticed it said Molle-126 \"Improved & Enhanced Voodoo Tobago Cargo Pack\" so hopefully it stands up to its name...BTW its a great size for a Bugout Bag."

"This looks like it will do fine for my purpose. I didn't buy this to withstand airline baggage handlers and the TSA, I bought it for the Get Out Of Dodge supplies. True, the plastic clips seem a tad low-grade and I can see why the zippers are not going to take much abuse, but for the price, what do you want? Try to find this at WalMart or any camping store at this price. Good luck with that. True to other reviews, the thing is huge, really roomy. I may not even have to \"liberate\" a shopping cart from a local grocer, on my way out of town if it turns out to be a walk-out instead of a drive-out. It arrived on the third business day from ordering, with 3-5 day shipping. You could do worse things with the money."

"Wow! This pack is far superior to what I expected, in line with the UTG and ops bags that sell for double the price or more. Very solid, with well designed pockets, compartments and pouches made this a treat to load up with over 50 lbs of gear. Solid straps, internal tie downs and specialized velcro retained magazine sleeves inside. I really like the spring webbing in the lower compartment to hold jingly items snug. Really, a top-notch pack for the money-a deal."

"This is a nice bag. Inside the bag the stitching is not very strong and the material is thin. The rest of the bag is very strong and appears to be good quality. My bag was made by Voodoo and is the Tobago model."

"Great bag with lots of storage. Price is awesome as well..WAY better price for the same bag than anywhere else I looked. Only complaint: shoulder straps don't appear to be as high quality as the rest of the bag, but not enough to warrant walking away from this deal. I bought the OD model, now thinkngo buying one in tan."

"Bought this before I went on a trip. It came 10 Minutes after I left. the next weekend I took it to a parade with my kids we didnt know how the weather would be so, I had them bring me a jacket the we could put in the pack. Six jackets (four for my boys and two for me and the wife) later they all fit fine and we had more room than I expected I was able to put some things for the baby in this pack also. Thank you CTD"

"From the reviews I have been reading, I can honestly say that it is a hit and miss with this bag. I personally have packed the bag with over 50 lb. and rucking over 5 miles. It absolute stood up to the job at hand, with me camping, going underway, and liberty ports. I love this bag and recommend it to all my friends. The only down side that I have is that the plastic buckle on the chest is the only thing that broke so far, and I have had the bag for over 6 months."

"I just got this product today, I gave it 4 Bullets because I am a very picky individual, and this backpack appears to made very well. It uses very thick material. I am 6'1'' and I weigh 240 lbs., and I fit very well feels like it will distribute weight evenly. I would have given it 5 Bullets however, I haven't taken into the woods yet! So I can attest this is a great product so far. Oh and it is a very big bag!!!"

"This is my bug out bag, it's big enough to carry everything you and your family will need for a few days. It has so many pockets and useful straps inside, I found a place for everything. I've got mine freighted down, and it still wears comfortably and it seems like an all around rugged bag. Features they don't tell you about are hydration bladder pockets and the two 30 round magazine holders in one of the pockets. A great bag."

"This is a great bag. When I opened it I was like \"WOW, This is big\" but not to big. There is so much room. I am only 5'7\" and it fits great. At first it looked like I needed to be 7 foot. But a tug here, a pull there and PERFECT. Much better then some of the higher $ bags. and the Molle fits perfect. OD green looks great."

"I bought the bag about a year ago and it's been great. My only complaints are the shoulder straps don't like to stay up, they slip down causing them to get loose. I found if you stitch them down to the strap running down the middle in a \"I\" formation, it will keep them from slipping anymore. The shoulder straps are off center one is higher than the other which puts more pressure on one shoulder than the other but it is not that noticeable. The material between the straps and the back padding is really weak and tore straight across the stitching. Other than that, if you can get over the small things it's a great bag. It is sturdy and can carry lots of stuff. I still use it to this day!"

"I bought this bag for my son's book bag. It's more than big enough and has room to spare. It's a tough little bag and I'm sure he will have it for years. The size allows it to get a little heavey if he's not careful, but he is more than pleased as well."

"I recently used this bag on a weekend trip with my boys. It held all the gear that I was using, plus had enough MOLLE places to add other things that I couldn't fit into my pack. Overall, this is a good bag, but a little short on the space for everything you would need for a weekend in the woods."

"I bought this pack for a bug out bag. It has plenty of room for everything you need. I took the bag to Colorado on an elk hunting trip. I used it everyday for two weeks. It had about 30lbs of gear. I packed out about 100 pounds of meat over 3 miles tied to the back with para cord and had no problems. I would recommend this pack for any use."

"I purchased this bag online while deployed, for my wife to use for school and travel. When I got home a few months later, I liked it more than she did, so I started using it as my garrison bag, while she used one of my assault packs. I really like the layout of the bag, and if it wasn't apparently manufactured by a drunken chimpanzee, it'd be the best pack I've ever owned. Fact is, I carry my uniform, phone, and wallet to work in this bag, and use it to carry home my PTs. It sits in my Jeep's passenger seat while I'm at work. In the 2 months I've used it, it hasn't had more than 15 lbs in it (more like 10...being liberal), and has never been out to the field. This being the case...THERE ARE 2 HAND-SIZED HOLES WHERE THE STITCHING FAILED!!!Both holes are on the bottom of the pack...one on each bottom corner of the middle pocket. I discovered this when stuff randomly started falling out of the pack, as the seams are very well concealed. When I first started using this bag, I planned on buying 3 more...one as a CLS bag (it's laid out perfectly for medical/trauma supplies), one for camping, and one for my next deployment. Now, I'm stuck with trying to repair this one (I hate throwing anything away).I don't know about those who have written about using their bag for deployment, but I can guarantee you that if you plan on carrying this bag outside the wire, it IS going to fail you!On a side note, a guy in my company had this bag as well. I didn't really notice it, as he and I were usually patrolling separate areas while in southern Afghanistan. He noticed my bag the other day, and mentioned that his lasted only HALF WAY INTO A 10-DAY MISSION!!!CTD...y'all are golden...but how about some quality control before you actually ship your products? 2 out of 2 bags failing? Fun times :/"

"Well sports, fans this looks like a great rugged bag. I purchased it for daily use, filled it with supplies and after two days worth of use, the main zipper broke, then three more zippers break. Really want to keep this bag but zippers are substandard. Great price, but you will be disappointed. Plastic zippers."

"I purchased this bag to use as a B.O.B. It is a bit on the heavy side, but it is very durable and spacious. I've added other MOLLE pouches and a water container carrier, for practical use. It works well wth my chest rig and does not hinder the carrying of a rifle. I've used it for some weekend hiking and have carried a good 30lbs. in it,so far. I've had no issues with it's construction (snaps,zippers,seams,belts)"

"If you need a pack with reliable zippers, stay away from this one. Literally every zipper with the exception of the main compartment zipper broke on the FIRST use. It was astonishing. Now, only one zipper of the two on each compartment is operable at best, and its a huge pain to prevent those from breaking as well. Simply put, the zippers on this bag are garbage."

"First use developed a tear along the nylon side not even close to a seam and I was only packing my running gear for after work, I repaired this. Now packing 50#s of climbing gear and while returning from 4th trip out the nylon buckles holding the shoulder straps in place snapped and broke forcing me to have to carry the pack for an hour on my return. Upon returning home I found another large hole in the side of the pack where there once again was no seam and only my climbing rope pushing against it. The zippers are self repairing but spend more time jumping track than anything. Piece of crap is what this pack is. If I could rate it negative 5 bullets I would! Its headed for the trash can."

"While the bag looks nice and can somewhat perform as a pack, most of the zippers broke literally right out of the box. I received the package in the mail, opened it and tried out the zippers, the smaller zippers actually broke immediately, rendering those compartments unusable. The large main compartment has a bigger and better zipper that functions as it should. Why I didn't just send this back immediately I'll never know."

"Right idea, right price, extremely poor workmanship...surprised by CTD. If you NEED one, buy military surplus...you can tell by the huge WORKING zippers. If your kid wants a cool bookbag, this is just okay.!!!!!MIL-SPEC DOES NOT MEAN U S MILITARY...NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!"

"Well...You get what you pay for...Definitely a knock off from the Motherlode...not the quality of the Motherlode. The stiching on the pack straps started to come apart so I had to do some repairs. Then the zippers started to fail...For those grunts, field repair is normal routine so you might be able to deal w/ the aggrivation...Suggest, eurythane glue (shoogoo) on the stitching. It's still ok for daily light or range use but not for heavy field use. You don't your gear to just spill out. Could possibly fail..Good luck......."

"Great idea for a bag. If the quality of this bag was much higher, it would be perfect! I could fit much more inside of it than I thought possible, but even when loaded to only 25 lbs, the seams near the main compartment zipper have started to break open. VERY disappointed. Would love to return it, but didn't start to really use it until 4 months after purchase. Don't buy this with the idea of heavy use. Also agree, would be great for a kid to play with."

Looked at blackhawk and other bags which seemed to have same options but twice the price. Only problem was the zipper pulls came off but replaced with shot line knots and works great. Love the bag and especially the price."

"This is my bug-out-bag, my hiking pack, over-night luggage bag, and everything else. I keep all my survival/hiking stuff in there, along with some molle attachements for spare magazines, shotgun shells, and a holster. Just got a 3.0L Platypus hydration bladder for it, but haven't filled it up yet.Easily fits a weekend worth of winter camping clothes. Been on several all-day hikes with it. Anywhere from 10 to 45 pounds of gear in it.I've had it so full with rock climbing stuff, I had to have a buddy hold it shut while I zipped it up.When we had to cross a river over a make-shift zip line, I hung the bag from the top handle strap with a carabiner & sat on it with most of my weight.I have broken one zipper pull so far. Stitching is still holding up good, though.Very happy with this pack so far. It gets used A LOT."

"As stated in other reviews, if this pack had better quality, it would be perfect. The features are awesome. Plenty of organization, but still enough open space for the big things.Now, about the quality: it stinks. I had been warned about this pack multiple times, but I just HAD to learn the hard way. I had taken this pack on a couple of minor excursions with a light load, and it worked fine. But as soon as I got it in the field with a load of 50-60 pounds, it fell apart. Zippers busted. Seams came apart. If it wasn't for that wonderful thing called paracord, I'd have ditched the pack in the woods and carried everything home wrapped in a tarp. I should have known better as soon as I saw the Voodoo logo on it. I've never owned any Voodoo gear that hasn't fallen apart.Bottom Line: This pack is comfortable and feature-rich, but be warned, if you intend to carry anything but the LIGHTEST of loads, do yourself a favor and look elsewhere."

"Well, I bought this backpack as a hunting pack/ bug out bag. After receiving the bag, I started to fill it up with all my goodys, only to have the very first inner pocket rip, with just a bottle of water put inside. Other than that the bag is OK, many pockets to fill, just have to watchout for not over stuffing them, could have been better quality in the stiching of the pockets though. Definitely get what you pay for.:("

"Made of good material but the quality control is seriously lacking. It's a larger pack and has some usable pocket and pouch space. Plastic liner is garbage. This pack would have received 5 bullets but I dropped it to 2 because the zippers are absolute garbage. For the love of all that is holy, USE BETTER ZIPPERS!"

"Product brand says Modgear but appears to be made by condor at least that was the tag . I have bought many backpacks under $100 and this exceeded my expectations by far . Says 3day load out but I could easily go 6 with a pack this size . Bought it got daily use but would use it for BO in a second . I think CTD might have replaced brands due to people returning the Modgear brand . I see lots of negative reviews but I can't imagine we would be talking about the same pack unless they upped Quality control at the factory . I am very happy with this purchase and am considering buying another . You really can't beat the price . I will say the OD green is lighter in color than my chest rig and other Molly pouched made by condor ."

"This bag is built well, has tons of storage space and easily works as a post 9/11 carry on bag. Worked amazingly well for a week long trip and 4 different planes. Comfortable to carry and the external compression straps and shoulder straps have velcro keepers at the end and mitigate snags and keep everything looking tight. Probably gonna buy one in each color."
