Maxpedition Mongo S Type Versipack Black

Maxpedition Mongo S Type Versipack Black

I have owned many Maxpedition products in the past and I have always sold them or traded them to someone else as I was disappointed with them after I got them. Don't get me wrong I was not disappointed by the vendors here at Amazon. I was disappointed by the descriptions used at [...] and many times vendors use those same descriptions. That's OK! This time however I am really impressed with this versipack. It is everything that Maxpedition and Outdoor Merchants said it would be! It holds all of my stuff and then some and it is roomy and get this: This is the first Maxpedtion product that I can actually say is comfortable. I order the product from Outdoor Merchants and I got it quicker then they said I would get it and I am very pleased. I would order from them again in a heartbeat! Great bag! Great service! and finally a great product from Maxpedition

  1. I have used Maxpedition bags, specifically the Versipack for years. I couldn't wait to order the Mongo. I usually purchase the right side carry, but wanted to give the S-Type a try. I truly love the bag, it has more than ample room and the new packet design and placement is perfect. I only wish I would have ordered the right side carry...next time. I shopped the web for a few weeks trying to find the best deal, and as usual no one could beat Amazons price and free shipping.

    I'm an avid Maxpedition fan and a former Jumbo user. While I still did not decided that the single strap (versipack) or a more conventional dual strap (backpack) design is the better, I use Maxpedition for both. For a bit larger and constant loads I recommend an ordinary backpack, like the Pygmy Falcon-II. But if you need to access your gear more frequently, on the go perhaps, and the load is not too heavy, the versipack is a better choice. One thing is for sure, if you intend to carry anything on your right hip, (a mobile phone in my case) you should stick to the S-Type designs. S-Type means, that you reach the CCW compartment, and the others with your left hand, the right is used to pull the bag forward generally.

    I also own and used a Jumbo, and loved the concept, but from time to time, missed the carrying capacity. The Mongo is a good answer for my (and probably others) needs. The CCW pocket is just perfect for my Kindle , along with a Bookgem Book Holder. In the main compartment is suitable for some clothes for my son, or a full frame camera, or a bigger binocular. Others mentioned earlier, that if you intend to carry something sensitive, you should install some form of protective padding, especially for the bottom of the bag.

    The front compartment are good for one's wallet, while the top is just perfect for a sunglass.

    Due to the size the hip strap is useful, if you walk longer distances, and keeps a full buttle in the bottle pocket. On shorter distances/lighter loads I used to hide the hip strap away, which can be done in a nice, clean way in its dedicated and hidden pocket.

    In all, this is a great EDC bag. The one recommendation I would make, is to create an "European" version of it, (I live here), because while it fits Letter size stationary just perfectly, it has some size issues with A4. Great for smaller pads though.

    This is the largest versipack. I have the two smaller versions which are also great quality. Size is king. If you buy one of the smaller ones you'll probably end up like me. Giving away your small one and buying the larger. The smaller ones seem to look bigger in the pictures. Keep in mind it states in their pictures that the male dummy model is 5 foot 8 inches and 150 lbs. not many of us guys are that small!

  4. Really really satisfied w the product, got this item thru amazon, it's pretty light weight, but VERY well built, I also got the CCW holster and fits like a charm. I'm still ordering 3 more maxpedition bags for my EDC and BOB - I chose maxpedition because of it's extensive system/attachments etc. the reviews are great from youtube even on amazon.
    I don't think you can go wrong w purchasing a Maxpedition bag.

  5. This bag has exceeded my expectations!

    Tough, well stitched and all sorts of handy pockets.

    This is a well made man-bag...or woman bag :-)

  6. I have been using this bag for the bast year now and it is another amazing product from Maxpedition. My netbook fits great in the rear CCW compartment. I bought the S-type because of the location of the water bottle. When I'm driving I have the Mongo on the passenger seat with the shoulder strap wrapped around the headrest. The bottle is right where I need it when driving. The pack is really comfortable. I can throw it over just my left shoulder when getting in and out of the car. If I'm walking for an extended time I'll wear it over the right shoulder and use the waist strap and be good for all day long. Be careful, the bag is large enough to put more weight than you can carry comfortably. Just because you could fit $2000.00 of quarters in it doesn't mean you should. The Mongo will handle the weight, you might not.
    Unfortunately living in the San Francisco Bay Area, getting a CCW is only a dream. They don't want the peasants to be armed. If you are blessed enough to live in the free part of America where you can carry, the S-Type is great for a righty who carries a strong side belt holster. It is also good for righties carrying a weapon in the pack if you like using a cross draw presentation. For lefties you'd be using a strong side presentation.

    Pros:
    The pack is extremely durable. It will last longer than you will.
    The stitching, buckles and zippers are done to perfection
    The options on the way to use this bag are endless.
    The ability to keep your stuff separated and organized is a real time saver.

    Cons: (There are only two that I've noticed after a year of use)
    There should be a carry handle like they finally put on the Jumbo.
    The strap for the main cover buckle could be longer. The ability for the main cover to hold down a tripod or jacket without tying it to the bottom would be a big plus.

    Update: There is another thing I wish Maxpedition would change about the Mongo Versipack. It would be nice to have a variation that doesn't have the phone holder and just has the molle webbing on both sides. It would more customizable that way. If you don't need the phone holder you could put something else there if you want, or just save the weight and not put anything there.

  7. Needed a diaper bag and had a friend recommend one of these. It's perfect! Lots of storage pockets for all baby's necessities and as a dad I don't have to look like I'm wearing a big puffy purse. This is our 2nd Maxpedition product and lives up to it's reputation for being comfortable, useful and bombproof.

  9. I have a few Maxpedition packs The Mongo S-type, The Kodiak Gearslinger, and the Proteus. I plan on getting some more Maxpedition stuff too!! Honestly they make a great product. Durable well organized well thought out gear.

    Part of why I got the S-Type Mongo even though I am right handed and tend to carry bags on the right side rather than left like the S-type does is I also have the Kodiak Gearslinger, which only comes in a sling over the left shoulder. The S-Type Mongo slings on the right shoulder. By getting the S-Type I am able to use both bags when needed to increase the load ability. The Mongo's waist strap is very useful when doing this to transfer that weight.

    Something to consider when you go looking at the Mongo packs. If you are thinking of getting (or have) a Kodiak or one of the other Gearslinger series the S-Type Mongo enables you to use them both.
