Khaki / Foliage
The Maxpedition Noatak is the latest addition to their Gearslinger lineup. Like the Sitka and Kodiak, this pack is designed to be worn on the back and rotates 270 degrees towards the front of the body for easy access to contents; this feature is particularly useful when the pack is worn while sitting down. Exterior modular webbing allows attachment of various pouches while internal loop fields facilitate concealed carry.

Life can be hard on gear, especially on those everyday packs and bags. Understanding how taxing the daily grind can be on kit bags, Maxpedition utilizes only the highest performing materials. Its story begins in a small workshop in 1988, where experts were dedicated to creating hard-use, military-specification nylon gear. It wasn't long before this commitment to producing durable bags was well-known throughout the world. Despite Maxpedition's international and domestic success, it continues to develop even more user-friendly designs and only uses quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship. Adhering to its philosophy of constant self-improvement, Maxpedition gear can withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the office, the gym or even that next mission in the field.

recommend bag and company to do business with
Reviewer: ricky | barre
The bag is a perfect design for a day or light overnight, theouter most pocket allows for easy frequent use, so I keep a cell wallet and keys in there. This is not my first maxpedition, I had a backpack for years until my dog got hold of one of the shoulder straps. I put that pack through the ringer. With that said after 4 times of using this pack the top handle started to tear away on both sides. I contacted customer service they agree that it sounded defective. they are sending me a return label and new bag. what a great company to deal with. Also, i found no better price on the internet.Thank you.
Great small bag for biking, hiking or daily carry
Reviewer: Michael Edelman | Huntington Woods, MI
I just purchased this Maxpedition Noatak Gearslingerfor use as a versatile daypack and bicycle bag. It's made of a very rugged Cordura nylon, and has a large number of pockets and compartments for stashing anything from a pen to a small laptop- I can slide my ASUS Eee Netbookinto the compartment behind the padded pack, and there's still plenty of room for the charger, books, raincoat, etc. That same compartment can also be used for a water bladder, and there are straps all along the padded sling where a drinking hose can be snaked.
One feature that attracted me to this design was the single sling that goes over the shoulder. This is more stable on a bicycle (or walking) than the usual two-strap design, and it allows you to rotate the pack around in front of you for access without the need to remove it. I have a Lowepro camera bag (the Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW) that works this way and I find it far more convenient and comfortable than any of my other bags. I find I can easily store one of my pocket cameras in the Noatak, and with the addition of a padded inner bag, I can carry a digital SLR safely as well.
Great pack but a bit smaller than expected
Reviewer: Dan | Oaksville, NY
Great pack, this my first gearslinger from Maxpedition. I did a lot of research online and thought this would be good as a day pack. I was a little wrong there but this is still and excellent pack, highly recommended. I have now learnt that Maxpedition gear is a little on the small side.
Love this little go bag!

I've had this bag for about 3 months and it is the best bare essentials pack I've had. With its organization pockets it makes things easier to get to while sitting down or while on the move because it slings to the front. No more take off, set on ground to look for passports kind of thing.
I have taken it when I'm at disneyland or just walking in the aquariums and its "Zipper lock cord" system is a nice confidence builder when carring your items. If someone is tampering with your pack they will have to work to unzip your pack (every second counts ;-)). Adding the 32 oz bottle holder is a great plus when doing active biking or walking.
What I love about it is how comfortable it is to wear and if the shoulder is a little sore just attach the stabilizer strap and it helps take off a little pressure off the shoulder for those longer than usual hikes.
In the main compartment it can hold a Dell Mini (inside a padded sleeve) with power cord, and note pads that are 9 3/4 in by 7 1/2 in.
Love this bag and I use it every day.
