TACTICAL GEAR: MAXPEDITION COLOSSUS Review

MAXPEDITION COLOSSUS

I needed a new bag like I need a hole in the head, but I was sifting through all my crap carriers and became dissatisfied with the fact that I really had nothing less than a backpack or messenger bag to carry my net-book in.

I wanted a strap hanger that didn’t make me look like I was toting a computer in a breifcase and could double pull double duty and haul other possibles I’d need on a mission in the red zone or to a Starbucks when on leave.

I found my match. The Maxpedition Colossus!

This sling bag fills a unique niche for me and supports me as an everyday carry bag. However, some might call it my ‘Man Purse’ just before I knock them on their can. What the hell do they know. Lots of cool dudes carry crap in a bag – think Jack Bauer since McGuyver never needed anything past the lint in his pockets and a pair of underwear to manage life’s problems.

The Colossus is a step up from being a waist pack but not as garish or imposing as a regular pack or ‘go’ bag would be. As usual, Maxpedition over engineers their products and stitched this bag together with tons of features.

If you’re in the market for an everyday carry bag, check this puppy out. You won’t be disappointed.
