    I'm looking at several bags to improve my function/loadout capabilities. I currently use a maxped Malaga and it's been great but I need a 2 strap or sling to 2 strap (adaptable) bag. So far I've seen the maxped typhoon, vanquest, and the msm adapt a pack. I don't want it to be too big so I guess a little bigger than my Malaga. I've also had a 5.11 rush 12. Any help is appreciated.

    Look at sotech tactical,they have a few bags that convert from sling to backpack and are pretty slick.

    I have a Go Pack from them and it is a lot of features in a really well made bag.

    Just a quick note. The bag should be completely black straps and all.

    In the mail this week I got a malgata, a sitka and a javelin 2.0
    I am liking the Javelin better, it's bigger than the malgata and doesn't adapt how you like, but I am enjoying it. Further testing required before i make a final choice. Also the rush 6 is about the same size as the malgata.

    I have an SO Tech MACTAC bag. Great design and construction.

    I think the all black ones are on sale now.

    I saw a few Vanquest designs I kind of liked at SHOT, unfortunately they all had "made in Taiwan" labels on them.

    I'm really liking mu Kifaru UZ, basically down-sized from my LAPG 3 day. The UZ is the perfect size for what I needed and the build quality is light years ahead of the LAPG 3 day. Its pricey but worth it.

    Did you not like the MSM Adapt Pack? I ask as I have the Tactical Tailor Removable Operator (same pack) and I love it. American Made, great quality, and an overall great bag for less than $100.
