Great small daypack with very good quality.


I held off getting this backpack because of the price. But I'm so glad I finally did. One can tell quality at a glance, but touch the bag and feel the robustness of the material and be reassured. Nice day pack. It won't be the only Maxpedition bag I purchase! Excellent stuff.


The Pygmy Falcon 2 (0517) is a compact and versatile Maxpedition day pack featuring a rectangular shaped design, making it ideal for travelling and hiking, in addition to everyday use.

With Y-shaped compression straps contributing to the bags form and structural integrity, a row of sewn nylon hard points in front allows users to attach other Maxpedition pouches and accessories with the 'snap and anchor' modular expansion system.

There is comfortable back padding and soft, curvaceous straps supported by 1.25 inches of nylon webbing to minimise the load on the shoulders. Two side net pouches with cinch cord can be used to carry water bottles.

The main compartment of the bag can be fully unzipped for easy access to the contents of the bag without having to empty out the whole bag to find something near the bottom.
