Need to carry gear? Lots of gear? The Vulture 3-Day Assault Pack is your answer with 2810 cubic inches (46 liters) of carry capacity in three compartments equipped with YKK #10 zippers and paracord knot pulls. Comfortable back padding, supple curvaceous straps supported by 1" nylon webbing, a chest strap, and a waist strap (padded and concealable) help distribute the weight evenly throughout the upper body. Removable 1" nylon webbing loops at the bottom can be used to tie a sleeping bag or a tripod.

A row of sewn nylon hard points in the front allows users to attach other MAXPEDITION pouches and accessories with our "snap and anchor" modular expansion system using TacTie�. Compatible with most hydration systems (up to 100 oz. water bladder) available on the market today.

MAXPEDITION's Y-shaped retention strap helps maintain the shape and integrity of the bag and can be used to hold a coil of rope.

Nine (9) major improvements that differentiate the new Vulture-II (#0514) from the original vulture (#0504):

  1. Addition of 5 rows of PALS webbing per side for full MOLLE compatibility
  2. Addition of 2 rows of PALS webbing on front pocket for full MOLLE/ALICE compatibility
  3. Addition of 2 quick release compression straps per side
  4. Addition of internal silent keyper in front pocket
  5. Improved hydration system pocket with zipper opening, a reservoir hang-tab, and a velcro bi-directional drink tube port

  7. Hydration pocket can accommodate a concealed firearm using our Hook & Loop Modular Accessories (e.g. #3501 Universal Modular Holster, sold separately)
  8. High visibility organizer in lower front pocket - for black Vulture-II (#0514B) only

Customer Reviews

"Hello, I received my Vulture-II backpack and am very pleased with the construction and overall quality of the product." - Chris, Washington, October 10th, 2007

"I have been camping, backpacking, and rock/ice/snow/mountain climbing for 42 years, and in that time have used every sort of backpack, from tiny ultralight summit assault packs, to 5000 cubic inch external frame expedition packs, in nearly every type of condition. So I can say, without fear of contradiction, that my Maxpedition Vulture backpack is the most rugged, overbuilt, bomb proof, versatile pack I have ever used! Not to mention the extremely comfortable harness, the huge water bladder capacity, zippers that never accidently separate under heavy loads but which always work even when frozen, and the virtually countless attachment points. So...keep up the good work." David, Nevada, April 24th, 2007

Item is great, shipping out of USA not clear September 6, 2012
Reviewer: Drew Juneau from Toronto, ON Canada  
The backpack itself is great, seems and stitching are strong. Zippers are well built.

Had to pay an extra $43.88 at the door, after shipping costs, for "brokerage fee" to Canada. So much for free trade. I could not receive the item without paying this door fee. It wasn't mentioned anywhere in the shipping, or order forms.
