    So far I own.....
    Northface Surge
    Northface Big Shot
    511 Covrt 18
    MaxP Falcon II
    Jumbo
    Sitka
    Proteus
    Colossus
    and a Fatboy in Kahki and Black (which i dont really dig because of the color scheme. may sell it soon)
    Plus various other MaxP add-ons

    At this moment Im awaiting delivery of a Black Fatboy (Hurry up UPS MAN!!!!)

    So far, my 2 Favorites are the Covrt 18 and the Sitka.
    If the Sitka was a backpack it would win hands down.

    I think Im done buying packs.....even though I've been eyeing a Litespeed Fastpack and a Mongo....After that...IM DONE!!!!!!



    I think.....

    Evening update: 6:30 pm....

    DING DONG!!!!!

    "Who is it?"

    "UPS"
    :agree::agree::agree:...:dance::dance::dance:

    Gonna load it up and carry this weekend. I think Black colored gear draws less attention.
    Got alot of questions when I went out the house with the Black and Kahki Fatboy.
    Got a few positive comments whenever I used the Jumbo.

    Ok. Its practically brand new. Only left the house maybe 4 times.
    I wanted to try a different color since all my packs are black, but i find I dont dig the kahki so much.
    Was gonna give it to my brother but he doesnt like shoulder bags too much and thinks its kinda "girly"
    Gonna ask my son if he wants it. If not, it will be up for sale or trade at a very good price.
    You get first dibs Trunkmonkey.

    I hate to be the Devil on your shoulder but I just listed a gently used Maxpedition Mongo in Black in the B/S/T (the same one from my Jumbo versus Mongo comparison review). It's listed on other sites so if you want it, then hurry. :evilgrin:

    I've read, you have the North Face Big Shot. Can you recommend it? I'm planing to go for it for my birthday, because I need a new backpack for school and for ie. a 2 day trip/overnight stay with friends.

    Are you no longer a believer in the Mongo?

    Quite the contrary, the Mongo is a great bag. But there is always the next bag to try and as I don't have an unlimited amount of funds, it had to go. My primary EDC bags continue to be my 5.11 COVRT 18 and my Maxpedition Jumbo EDC.

    The Big Shot is a nice pack also.
    Roomy...not the greatest in the organization dept...very comfortable
    I kinda bought it in haste in anticipation of Hurricane Irene. Didnt have a real BOB set up so I bought it, threw some stuff in there and was hoping for the best...LOL

    Building a functional BOB is my next project....ideas and comments welcome

    Thanks. I think it'll work for school and I don't need a great organization system within my backpack. I'm comfortable with the laptop carry and maybe something where I can put the charger and a mouse...

    Not to confuse you, but check out the Surge too.. It has a seperate space just for your laptop and its just as big as the Big Shot.
    Plus it has cool mesh pockets to help seperate all ya small items..
    You might like the Surge better....its comfy too.
