The Falcon-II Backpack is the quintessential Maxpedition® product: Durable, ergonomic, and intelligently designed.

This medium bodied pack is thoroughly constructed with 1050-Denier water & abrasion resistant nylon.

Its ergonomic shape, padded shoulder straps and sturdy sternum & waist support make it an absolute delight to wear.   

Further examination will reveal that the Falcon-II has layered independent compartments with more pockets, pouches and PALS attachment points than most backpacks twice its size.

Pull the dual-directional YKK® zippers and expand the main compartment into a full clamshell opening. 

You'll find that the Falcon-II is surprisingly spacious with room to accommodate your camping essentials and one (1) 100oz/3L water reservoir.

Pack it up and press it down with front & side compression straps, then head out on a hike or overnight with a premium Maxpedition backpack.


Maxpedition backpacks are built for hauling gear and ergonomically designed to never drag you down.

Curvaceous, foam-padded double shoulder straps contour to your chest and a sternum suspension belt helps distribute weight evenly throughout your upper body, so you can carry a load without falling behind.

Made with high quality nylon stitching, self-repairing YKK® zippers and a durable water-resistant exterior.

Maxpedition backpacks have multiple compartments and pockets and offer plenty of space for mission essentials, camping gear, hydration reservoirs, laptops, textbooks and CCW.
