    I am very happy with this bag. I haven’t had a 50L bag (or any “tactical” bag) before so I don’t know how big a 50L bag was supposed to be. Regardless,this bag has plenty of room for a long day of hiking if you want an extra jacket, food, survival gear, gps, water bladder and a few of your buddy’s items. If you would use this bag for outdoor activities or as a B.o.B. I would recommend the 50L over the smaller version because the compression straps can make the bag significantly smaller if you ever desire. You can’t make the smaller bag larger. The materials are tough and thick with the exception of the thin fishnet mesh type material that make some of the pockets inside of some compartments. I noticed a small rip in one of the pieces of mesh after my first outing(likely from something I had stored in there) but it doesn’t really bother me. Unless you have bulky, sharp or heavy items in the mesh I don’t think it will be an issue. I do wish this material was tougher. The vinyl exterior did absorb some water falling from the cave roof on my cave hiking trip but I imagine it could be water-proofed with a water-proofing product. The vinyl did not become ripped or noticeably scraped up when I had close encounters with cave walls or jagged rocks.

    One of the most difficult decisions when picking this Mil-tec bag was the color option because there are so many types of camo and colors to choose from. My philosophy of use for this wasn’t a dedicated bug-out-bag but more of a gear and day hike bag so I wanted something a little subdued and a color that wouldn’t scream for attention in a crowd. The color of the OD Green is nice and not at all obnoxious in my opinion. I’d say it is a little darker than the particular picture given and under dim indoor lighting it appears to have a brownish hew to it. Lighting can change the perceived color so it isn’t fair to judge it by one picture or scene.

    The buckles, molle II webbing and straps are very robust and well stitched. All seams appear to be strong and the zippers have not given me any trouble so far. The shoulder straps seemed a little stiff out of the bag but they really did not bother me when I was using it. I do with that this bag had a Y-strap (to attach a jacket externally) and a sternum strap but if you’re thrifty those would be easy additions. I got my SOG Seal Pup Elite knife with kydex sheath to attach to some molle II webbing on the side which was nice. The sheath is not designed to attach to molle II but I got it to barely squeeze through.

    I am glad I chose this over a Maxpedition or something similar that would cost double or more. I believe you get approximately equal quality at a significantly lower price. This Mil-Tec bag says it was made in Germany. If you’re wondering about shipping, the particular seller I purchased it from (Camo Outdoor) shipped it from Ireland the next day. It arrived (in WA, USA) a little over 2.5 weeks after I ordered it, and on the first day of the estimated delivery time frame. It would have been nice to have ship tracking offered but it all worked out well.

    I bought this pack as an all-purpose camping/hiking/travel bag and it has been great thus far. I feel like it might be a little small to be a 50L bag, but I have little base for comparison. Good quality made bag. It was a little uncomfortable during the first hike, but after breaking it in a bit, I don’t notice it. Definitely no regrets.

    Tough Bag – but seems smaller than 50L, January 17, 2012

    This link above has the item specifications. The bag I received was manufactured by Mil-tec and was the right color and size (according to the plastic film bag packaging the backpack arrived in). This bag is thick, heavy, padded, tough, and water resistant. A great deal for a style that brand-name manufacturers charge over a hundred dollars for. That being said, the bag feels more like a 36L bag than a 50L bag. I carry a Northface Sure Shot which is a 34L daypack for school. Side-by-side comparisons really show how similar in size this supposed 50L bag is in capacity. The seller has posted the correct information as advertised by the manufacturer, however the minus star is against the manufacturer and it’s liter capacity calculations.

    Great overnight bag, or 3-day roughing-it ruck for bushcraft types. Will post a video review later (if possible).
