Many folks decide on going with the Maxpedition Condor II hunting backpack instead of any other pack for one reason and one reason only, the large main compartment.
At least that was my deciding factor.
There is huge competition out there int this industry and hunting backpacks have come a long way from just a pouch you strap on around your waist and march off to the woods.
Nowadays, they build them almost better than they used to build houses.
The Maxpedition Condor II is one such specimen.
This hunting backpack is a work of art.

No part of it goes to waste, everything is functional and essential to the entirety of the bag. When it comes to the ergonomics of it all, the backpack is magnificent to say the least. A little smaller than the pictures let on, but all in all, it is a great pack. The shoulder straps, which are part of the main problem with most backpacks, are very comfortable.
The fabric used here is very stiff and very thick. This is how you want a hunting backpack to be, something tough, something that can withstand a little trauma.
The zippers (a major important factor for me!) are wonderfully large and do not keep disappearing on you, and the sewing is just top of the line.
When it comes to functionality, the Maxpedition Condor II is up there with the best of them. The shoulder straps have two ‘webs’ that can hold your knife and flashlight. The bottom of the bag is waterproof and very sturdy. There are straps here, at the bottom, that allow you to carry a one man tent or a very small two-man tent.
So far, the Maxpedition Condor II appears to be a hunting backpack among hunting backpacks. It is a snug 25lbs when full. That is just the right amount of weight you want yo be comfortably carrying in a mid-sized hunting bag that delivers more than you bargained for and does its job very well.
