    • Best I've ever had!
      Reviewer: Ken

      I've always purchased lower priced backpacks to carry to work. But, they only last a couple of years and soon end up looking like a used shopping bag. My Maxipedition Pygmy is the best made bag I have ever owned. It is durable and keeps it shape. There are internal pockets for my cell phone, calculator, pens, pencils, etc. A standard sized portfolio fits perfectly. The straps and body are strong enough to carry a significant load. I can even keep some snacks in it. It is easy to keep clean and always looks sharp.

      Reviewer: Jake

      3/7/2012
      this bag is incredibly well built. main compartment fully unzips allowing you to load it clam-shell style, side mesh pouches easily and securely hold a couple 1L Klean Kanteens or Nalgenes, i was curious about the single top y-shaped compression strap, but happily, it works great. i'd ask Maxpedition to please never stop producing this pack, but i have no idea when i would ever be in the market for a 2nd... had it 6 months now and it still looks brand new. definitely money well-spent. warning: if you're as much of a gear-whore as i am, this little guy may well cure you of any utility-bag / daypack addictions you may have. ;)

      I love the complete opening of this bag, easy to load, easy to see what all is in there. Carries enough water for a long hike and is build to last for YEARS. Great bag!

      This is a great pack! It's perfect for EDC, as it fits my lunch bag in the main compartment with ease, my klean kanteen in one side pocket and my coffee thermos in the other. The internal pockets are perfect and although it's not set up for ccw, the small zip pockets are great for my smaller pistols. The build quality is superb and I think I'll own this pack for a long time to come. I might even buy another Maxpedition soon....

      I'm into survival, this pack has exceeded my standards. I'm able to take this out in negative weather and survive. The pack holds up great, main compartment is waterproof(tested it).

      Last year, I took my Pygmy Falcon II on holiday through London, Brighton, Dover, Paris and the Normandy region. Obviously, an urban outing, but nevertheless the pack worked no matter what. It made a perfect carry-on bag for the flights and was compact enough that standing in the tube or metro cars was not an issue. I added the Monkey Combat admin pouch for notebook, passport, etc. and the 4.5X6 padded pouch for my Canon G11. The main section is large enough for all-day outings and a small f.a. kit fit well in the front pouch. I used 1 of the bottle pouches for a collapsible umbrella, so we were set regardless of the weather. I can't wait to try it again somewhere a little more rough. 5 of 5, highly recommended.

      This pack has totally surpassed my expectations. I am fairly new to the Maxpedition line, but I now own 4 products. This pack feels great on, and the uses are endless. It is the perfect size for an EDC bag. You will be a believer when you receive it. The photos do not do it justice!!!

    • Rugged, durable day pack
      Reviewer: T. Craft

      The Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon-II Backpack is a great pack. It provides typical Maxpedition quality in a rugged, well designed, extremely strong and durable product that has MOLLE attachments to add gear as necessary. The Pygmy Falcon-II Backpack is great for day hikes and even minimalist over night camping where water will not be an issue. It holds approximately 1400 cubic inches of gear which should be plenty for a day hike. With a thin profile you will be able to trail blaze through bush with no problem. The "Y" compression strap helps to keep everything in place. Side Pouches The side pockets will each hold a 32 oz. Nalgene bottle. If water is going to be an issue this pack may not be your first option since it is not very compatible for a hydration system. But you do have options...if water is an issue you can always attach one or two Maxpedition Mini Rollypoly Folding Dump Pouches which will each hold a 32 oz. Nalgene bottle. You have just doubled your water capability. The modularity offers many configurations depending on your needs. Shoulder Straps The shoulder straps are well padded and capable of attaching a 4" or 5" flashlight sheath and a single sheath for a multi-tool. These add ons are also available from Maxpedition and are well worth the price. It comes with a chest strap for added comfort. Main Compartment The main compartment is a nice size and opens with two zippers in a clam shell fashion allowing you to completely open the pack to get what you need as opposed to taking out all of your gear to find the needed item. The main compartment is large enough to hold a first aid kit, pocket rocket with fuel, food, extra socks, a light jacket and more. Front Pouch and Slip Pocket The front pouch will hold a lot of your smaller gear and the slip pocket will hold thin items such as a map, compass, fleece hat, headlamp, etc. Maxpedition products are designed for hard use, durability and a long product life. Many of the other larger companies cannot and do not match the quality of Maxpedition. I highly recommend the Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon-II Backpack.

      I like the tall and narrow profile of this pack. It allows me to make my way through crowds without snagging. I also like the clamshell syle opening that makes loading and organizing easy. Construction is typical Maxped quality. Tough and durable.

      Having owned this pack for about 4 months, and taking it on several hiking trips - its probably the best day pack I have ever used. The small outside pocket is big enough for Garmin Etrex GPS, map compass and topo maps. The next larger pouch is big enough for a good sized first aid kit, heavy duty rain poncho and a few more items. The main compartment is big enough for hammock, poncho liner, couple of MREs, cord, tent stakes, water filter, camera, just about everything you need for a day hike or light weight over night camping trip. Hikers or camping looking for a minimalist pack should take a serious look at this one. The shoulder straps have lots of padding. One hiking trip I took this pack on was about 8 miles. The pack was fully loaded - just in case my party and I decided to spend the night - the next day my shoulders were not sore. If you want more room, the PALS ladder system makes adding extra pouches to this pack a snap The two water bottle pouches on the outside of the pack fit a 32 ounce water bottle perfectly. The cinch straps fit round the neck of the bottle. So if you turn the pack upside down, the water bottles will not fall out of the pouch.
