The perfect backpack
This bag has more than enough room for everything I carry. It's sturdy and holds up really well. Definitely recommend it to everyone.

Wow- an amazing bag & Amazing Customer Service.
Great frame, excellent storage internally and externally- incredibly well thought out with tons of compartments. Love that you can secure the straps for what I'd call "airport mode", then go backpacking when you land. Not too mention excellent customer service. Frankly I cannot say enough good things about this company / product. Rare to see a company stand by it's product as they have. 1 small issue with a zipper, and they rectified it immediately. Props to you SOC.

Not as good as the Gen 1
I got the Gen 2 for Christmas 2019 as a replacement for my Gen 1 SFB. My Gen 1 boots lasted almost 5 years as my everyday work boot. Being October 2021, I noticed my Gen 2 ripping the leather where the bottom shoe lace eyelet strap is sewed in. This is one major change from the Gen 1 to the Gen 2. I wished Nike would have just left it alone or still offered the Gen 1.... Or combine the 2 for Gen 3. Otherwise, these are great light weight boots.

Great for others
I got these boots initially and they were quite a bit too narrow for my feet, so I returned them immediately for a wide. The wide feels a little better, but not quite wide enough for my forefoot, but the heel... well the heel is incredibly wide. I wore these for two weeks to break them in before a big airsoft event, and my intention was to wear these as my primary for that and for hiking later since the tread is much larger than my Rockies. The break in with the Rockies was like a month, but I wore them the entire event because these gave me crazy terrible blisters. We're talking rubbed the skin off my heel on both feet and it wept and bled for almost a week. Had to play the entire event with my heels wrapped up. I've barely worn mine, not sure what to do. I really wanted to like these.

I was reluctant to use a standard size backpack to use as a carry-on for a quick four-day trip. I didn't need too much packing space, wanted it to easily stuff it under the seat for quick deplaning. The MaxTacs backpack easily accommodated all I needed for the trip (electronics, book, extra clothes and toiletries) and, with the adjustable straps, it made for a very small/compact piece of luggage that married-up well with my over-head carry-on. It's well constructed, ergonomic and I look forward to put it on the road or - in the air.

I LOVED my MOABs for years, so I thought I’d love these. I didn’t. Really wanted to, but after wearing these for 4 months they only got less comfortable. The ankle shaft is very thick and stiff. Good for stability, but it never broke in and only caused uncomfortable rubbing. I tried wearing them both looser and tighter, neither fixed the problem. I’m admittedly picky on boots, but I really did want these to work and tried. Switching back to an old pair made me realize how futile it was trying to make these Merrill’s work though. Additionally, despite Merrill’s reassurance these are coyote brown, they are really a sand color. Wearing them in uniform I never really got called out, but I should have been. Like I said, I really wanted to love these, but they never wore right for me.

Decent for the price. Pockets are not deep enough. Side tab adjustment is poor, keeps slipping. Ankle ties for blousing are smooth functioning.

I have worn combat boots for over 20+ years in the military. I had never had a pair of Garmont boots until today when I tried on the Belleville, Altama, and others in person at a store at the Army PX. I was really impressed with the comfort of Garmont T8 Bifida boots. I wore them around the store for about 10 minutes and decided to buy them. I've been wearing these all day and I feel like I have owned these for a year; they were that comfortable to my feet. What I learned is that Garmont uses orthopedic foot pads in their boots which were very comfortable! The outer portion is high-quality material and the soles are Vibram. Sold!! If you haven't tried Garmont, you really should. You won't be sorry. (D.V. Army - Ret.)
