The granddaddy of fixed strap Gearslingers!

Optimized to meet rugged and urban conditions and offering enhanced space with additional pockets and all the great Gearslinger features.

This single shoulder backpack is designed to maximize utility when rotated towards front of body and fits up to a 15.4" laptop computer.   

It's hard to believe a bag of this size would be so comfortable, but the Kodiak is designed durably with high carry potential, so it's always ready for domestic or international travel.

If you're looking for maximum space and utility combined with instant accessibility, this is the everyday carry for you. 


The ergonomic fixed-strap Gearslinger rotates 270 degrees to the front of the body, giving you complete top-down access to horizontal pockets.

You can easily get to your gear while sitting, standing or moving throughout your day.
