Is the Maxpedition Octa a small, medium or large size fanny pack?
Although I really love my Octa and wear it everyday,I would say it's big..
Take a look here: http://www.lighthound.com/gallery.asp?catalogid=1165 to see it on a person.
Look in this topic to see my pictures of the octa: http://edcforums.com/showthread.php/44680-Maxpedition-OCTA/page2?highlight=octa
there are a numer of other posts about the Octa on this forum as well, I suggest you try the search button
Hope this helped somewhat..
size is relative. The octa is small compared to a Mountainsmith Day lumbar pack or Kifaru TG1.
This bag is probably too big to be unnoticed under an untucked shirt or light jacket right?
Will a thick wallet, iphone, leather key pouch, small folding knife all fit with room to spare? On occasion, I'd like to drop in a canon sd780 with in a thin camera pouch.
Will it hold a full size 1911??
It will definitely hold a phone, keys a knife and will have spare room. I'm not sure about the 1911, but regarding the specs I think it will fit in the main compartment. It has molle on the back, so you might consider attaching the gun there.
it won't hold a 1911
I own an octa and carry it around pretty often. Regarding the average fanny pack size I would say it is medium or between small and medium.
I am pretty sure it will not hold a 1911. The nice thing is its modularity: the backside of the octa perfectly fits a maxpedition tactile pocket large, and you have loops on the right and left side from the main pocket to attach for example 2 tactile pockets in small to it. I sometimes use a small rollypolly with it to carry a bottle.
How does the Maxpedition Octa compare to the proteus?
depends where you go to the dock, the advantage is that you can always put on the waist.
