Wow... That's one F.ugly pack.
i had some luck this chrimbo in that i got a karrimor sf 35 litre daysack and well its ausome now when i was looking at them it was the best option for me and well i have now found this
and well it came out in january and its just what i would have liked back at chrimbo and now typical i have no bushcraft buget and its sat there taunting me not fair and that is why i have made the above statement now please note if you dare to look at the website of bushcraft pronography you will ruin all marrige relations with the other half why because well like i said its bushy porn and the bank managers worst night mare
and i take no responsibility for your stupidity at even looking never mind buying.
so any ideas on how i could addapt the sf to carry molle cos my mum said why cant the sf carry molle and i explained why and then she said well cant it be addapted
so i ask can it or not
Wow... That's one F.ugly pack.
very funny gentleman but not helpfull but thanks anyways
It's just sewing and a bit of tape Drew.
yer i know that but can u hand sew through 600D rip stop material cos it feels plasterised and sort of water proof
And theres been rucksacks like that on ebay for ages, at a good deal less. How come you missed those before christmas?
Uhhmmm That IS an ugly pack... and I checked the rest of the site and came out thinking:"So what? Big deal. Just a heap of seriously overprised goodies for a poshcrafter"....
Do I need to seek mental counceling now???

Does look like a giant couple of lego bricks with straps.
Though perhaps shouldn't judge so harshly, have a hankering for a Kelty MAP 3500. Fortunate only amron sell them, and my old Karrimor is holding up well.

or okay cheers gents and were would i get said tape from if i wanted some cheers
I have loads of maxpedition kit and the quality is second to none. Yes it is fairly expensive, but it is also durable. It aint 100% waterproof but I give my kit a once over with some waterproofing spray and that does the trick for me. In contrast a friend of mine has a north face rucksack, which is coming apart at the seams.
I have a daypack maxi, week pack maxi, grabable bum bag (octi versipack) and a few of their pocket size bags which i can strap to my main bags. Each and every bit of maxi kit I own is awesome.
It aint cheap but then neither is it overly expensive. I do like to be now known as a "poshcrafter" though according to one commentard
;-) Hey, I have a decent day job and like good strong kit, I would rather pay 100 bucks for my maxi Vulture 2 than go through 3 other bags over the years and slowly watch the stitching fail or worst of all fail whilst I am on a trip. 100 bucks for a decent sack is not bad at all and certainly not over priced, your pack is one of your best friends, most people spend more on a sleeping bag/decent bivi and 3x for a tent! So why not take good care over the quality of your pack too?! It will save your back a lot of strain and provide years of use and virtually never fail on you.
I have seen the falcon a few times, and yeah it does look a little lego bricky, but I bet it is a hell of a good bag.
I'm not criticising the cost, just the aesthetics...
to be fair the cheap copies of these e.g kombat uk and others are over half the price of the maxpedition and total crap, with regards to stitching and material quality so the maxpedition isnt such a bad deal , if your looking for this type of pack.
was aiming the comment at Ron really, I should have quoted him sorry! It looks quite cute in black, stick a waterbottle on the side and have it full of your kit and I bet it looks just splendid ;-)
Stupidity got us into this mess. Why can't it get us out?

plenty of sellers,have a look around or get mummy to check out the haberdashery shop in town.... stitch it using polyester button thread & if you're planning to carry heavy objects on your webbing then it might be a good idea to re-enforce the stitching by adding another piece of fabric on the interior where you stitch so the stitches won't pull through.
When done you can rub a candle over the stitches on the inside to water proof it......job done
Drew i have the Falcon and its a great bit of kit. Sits well on my back and not too wide as to be annoying.
Can get quite a lot of gear in it too but if you dont need all the space you can compress the straps and make it smaller.
The way its laid out is pretty good if you keep it organised.
Personally i like the design but not for everyone. Its hard wearing and durable and should last qute some time.
Im a big fan of Maxpedition gear just not of the price.
Its also a good size to wear as a chest pack when you have your bigger pack on your pack. I find this helps remove a little weight from my back.
Here you go, Drew....
you could Molle everything you own with this. Even your car...
and thanks for the comments everyone and johnny where did you get yours from and i have found some webbing at 1.30 a meter so bught two metters of the stuff to have a try with to see what its like
Just remember though Drew, if you add molle straps and start to ratchet bell tents and dutchies to the back of your pack your going to seriously increase the lever action of the pack on your core, remember that mole is used to hold bits of chud to your front as well as your back when used with body armour so in theory you get heavier in a balanced way, IMO for non mill use molle stuff is rubbish, to much opportunity to strap useless nik naks to an already heavy pack
I reckon you should buy it ASAP then sew lots of leather to it and a few badges as well....
