Maxpedition Falcon-II Tactical Backpack.
Structurally, the tactical backpack Maxpedition Falcon-II consists of two large internal compartments with additional pockets, two external patch compartments, a compartment for the hydraulic system. Adjustable shoulder system, system of upper, side and lower adjustable couplers, and waist belt. I would like to immediately pay attention to the compartment for the hydraulic system.
The manufacturer positions it as intended for drinking systems with a volume of up to 3 liters, but due to its small width and thickness, not every 3 liter hydraulic system will fit there. The manufacturer himself recommends Camelbak drinking systems for use with a backpack. In our case, with the Maxpedition Falcon-II backpack, a 3-liter drinking system from the Blackhawk 100oz AntiMicrobial Replacement Reservoir with Microban antibacterial protection and a pressure-locking mouthpiece valve with a locking system worked well for itself.
pouches. Moreover, it is not necessary exactly the production of Maxpedition. In our case, a cargo pouch of the Ukrainian manufacturer of tactical equipment manufacturer STS is fixed on the lower front compartment.
pouches or additional accessories will have to be purchased separately special TacTie fastening tapes, which are available in two sizes, 3 and 5 inches.
backpacks usually use the so-called web dominators (web dominator). But this necessary and convenient accessory must be purchased separately.
Condor-II and Vulture-II, is a kind of lock located on its upper part and used to fix the sliders of the lightning of the main and additional internal compartments. Moreover, their fixation is possible both together and separately. Although the high-quality protection of the backpack compartments with the help of such a device seems illusory, its presence on the Maxpedition Falcon-II backpack is more than justified. Since, due to its small volume (25 liters), this backpack, among other things, can very well be used as an everyday city bag. And in public transport or public institutions, even such poor protection will never be superfluous. In addition, this lock can be used as an additional external point of attachment or suspension for carrying ropes, things, etc..
tent, sleeping bag, karemat, and also hang additional bags and accessories.
4. Lateral and upper external adjusting couplers will help to optimize the external dimensions of a backpack if it is not full.
5. The reinforced bottom of the backpack will protect things if put in snow or mud.
6. Increased convenience for filling the main compartment is provided by zippers around the entire perimeter of the backpack, it can be opened along the suitcase.
Disadvantages of the Maxpedition Falcon-II Tactical Backpack.
1. Compartment for hydraulic systems, due to its narrow and elongated shape, is not compatible with all drinking systems.
2. In some cases, the length of the side ties is clearly insufficient.
