FALCONER-30 New Features: (1) Larger capacity (now 30-Liters); (2) Padded waist belt with Pull-Forward Adjustment (3) Hypalon MOLLE-Air attachment panels on both sides; (4) Loop-faced MOLLE-Air attachment system in the main compartment.
The FALCONER-30 backpack is loaded with key features from Vanquest's most popular and field-proven bags and pouches: IBEX backpack's fillet-open main compartment, MAXIMIZER Organizer's space-saving webbing, and FATPack med pouch's elastic cord ladders, all packed inside this 3-layer backpack!
Total 30-liters of space featuring a MacGyver's dozen (28) of pockets/slots to securely stow your EDC, outdoor, school, work, and get-home essentials. The covert FALCONER-30 backpack is unrivaled in its ability to TRULY organize your gear.
Back-layer (main compartment): Similar to the IBEX, the FALCONER's fillet-open 18.25" (H) x 10.75" (W) x 4.75" (D) main compartment features loop-field lining on all walls, giving users unlimited setup possibilities. Loop-faced laser-cut MOLLE-Air panel and a 14.75” (H) x 10.5” (W) slip pocket sits opposite. The main compartment comes with locking #10 YKK zippers and ITW’s oversized rubber zipper-pulls, which offers excellent snag-resistant grip.
Middle-layer: The 17.5" (H) x 10.5" (W) x 2.5" (D) middle compartment also fillet-opens. One side has two Velcro-secured clear window pockets, and a small loop field on the opposite side with a ripstop short pocket, which doubles as a tool handle garage. This middle-layer also has the hidden ability to carry an over-sized item secured by the side compression straps, and 7 anchor points around the backpack!
Front-layer: Two front pockets deliver the best features from both the space-saving MAXIMIZER organizer, and the FATPack medical pouch. The top-front pocket offers dual slip pockets and elastic webbing to secure loose items, while the lower-front pocket comes with built-in FATPack / MAXIMIZER features, offering the ultimate organization for medical supplies, tools, or personal kit for any load-out. The lower pocket also comes with a fold-in FASTab, allowing you to access all of your vital gear with an instinctive downward pull!
Ergonomic features such as a removable pull-forward adjustable waist belt with a padded lumbar support, two shoulder straps with load-lifters, and a sternum strap provide excellent comfort. Rear hydration / CCW pocket has a hose pass-through exiting from the top. Subtle Hypalon MOLLE-Air attachment panels are located on the side with bottom nylon webbing giving the option of modular expansion while keeping a covert and subtle look to the FALCONER-30.

I can't say enough about this bag! It is an exceptional.
-The quality is fantastic.
-It has very good organization, especially compared to some of the other bags on the market I would compare it too...namely Maxpedition.
-I am a huge fan of how they have incorporated backpacking elements into their design (pull forward tightening in the hip belt and the upper straps on the shoulder straps to pull you pack forward.
-Wasn't sure if I was going to like the top handle in front of the main compartment zipper but I have actually found it to be a huge benefit for handling and control of all the front of the bag as it can carry a large amount in those front sections.
-Zippers a top notch and love the zipper pulls!
-My ipad pro 12" fits perfectly in the back water reservoir for everyday carry.
-One of the only areas I find on the week side is how far I have to loosen the shoulder straps if I want to have the hip belt actually sitting where it should on my hips. Not the worst thing in the world and I find that if I rest it a bit higher than normal I can still be comfortable. I'm only 5'10" so if you taller you might find that the hip belt rides pretty high or you'll have to loosen the shoulder straps most of the way.
