The Maxpedition Fatboy S-Type Versipack (#0408) was originally designed for Search and Rescue work, the S-type allows for the additional attachment of the CP-L Radio Holster (#0102) or any other Maxpedition accessory pocket in place of the cellphone pocket on the standard Fatboy. In addition, the Fatboy S-Type rides on the left side of the body filling the need for a 'lefty' Fatboy and a grab-and-go gear bag that does not hinder the quick drawing of a sidearm on the right hip. It also has a 2" wide Velcro loop patch on the front lid for attachment of ID patches. Each S-Type Fatboy comes with a tactile non-slip shoulder pad providing great comfort during extended use.

The Fatboy's rear slip compartment is now equipped with large loop Velcro patches to accommodate Maxpedition Hook & Loop Modular Accessories (e.g. #3501 Universal Modular Holster, sold separately). This allows the user to position their concealed carry firearm for a quick strong side draw or weak side cross draw.

The following are the major differences between the S-type and the standard Fatboy:

(1) The footprint of the S-type is in the MIRROR IMAGE of the footprint of the standard Fatboy. (2) The S-type has an additional anchor attachment point where the cellphone pocket is on the standard Fatboy. (3) The S-type provides more modular capacity than the standard Fatboy with three anchor attachment points>

Love the bag! I wish the bag was a bit bigger, not as big as the jumbo, but somewhere in between the jumbo versipack and the fatboy.... just to get enough so that its easier to get my gun in an out... Pros: Carrys well , very tough, very functional Cons: wish the ccw pocket was bigger

took a chance and purchased this product based on reviews.So glad I did,I have used it hunting and as a CCW bag on trips.It has excelled at both,my M&P compact fits nicely with a couple extra mags.Deer hunting it held the basic survival gear and since i got the left side carry I did'nt fight with my rifle sling for space.Overall a very well thought out bag. Pros: room for gear Cons: not yet

I really like the bag. I purchased it along with the universal holster to conceal a springfield xd subcompact. I can barely fit my hand in that pocket to get my pistol (im 6'3" w/large hands). So in a "tactical" situation it would be quite hard to quickly access the pisol. Definetly not my first choice for carry in a place I may be engaged in a "situation". The reason i didnt give it a lesser rating is because i was impressed with the quality of the product... all in all if your a small person by all means this bag is for you. if your average to large.. go for the larger size.. Pros: quality built, handy , great company Cons: too small if have large hands

Overall its a good bag. I do miss the second compartment to put a weapon. The waist band should be removable Pros: Allows a crossdraw for right handed people and has side bags Cons: It only has one compartment for a weapon.

In retrospect maybe the jumbo would have better fit my needs, but it seemed too large at the time. Pros: Cool looking bag to carry small items Cons: on the small side looks almost like a purse

This is a great pack that has all the room you need to carry for the day. It makes a fine camera bag along with pockets for other electronics all while concealing your weapon if needed.Expandable options are excellent as well. I added the holster and sheath. Pros: durability, space, features Cons: easy to overload, some neck strain

Maxpedition makes packs and bags that can be counted on for toughness, and this Versipack is no exception. I keep a lot of gear in it, and a small S&W model 627, although I don't use Maxpedition's gun rig, which I'll discuss in my other review. The pack carries everything from a monocular, to a first aid kit, a multitool, to an Al Mar SERE 2000. It's fairly compact, balances nicely and works out to be very comfortable and lightweight. At the price, especially the price at I paid at Optics Planet, it's a great choice. Pros: Holds everything I want with me. Well made. Cons: Shoulder strap should be wider.

Both this for my wife to conceal and carry. She loves the bag overall but she has trouble drawing her full frame pistol from the concealment pouch. Looking for a compact pistol to complete her attire. Pros: Roomy with plenty of storage Cons: Pistol concealment more suited for compact or sub compact

I like to have my "stuff" with me when I'm out and about, whether it's hiking or traveling. So a couple of years ago I started carrying a small bag with first aid supplies, snacks, glasses, etc. Since then, I've used several different bags, including a couple of them from Maxpedition. The Fatboy seems to be the best combination of size and functionality...big enough for the really important gear and supplies, but not too big that it is cumbersome or hard to carry. It's much more convenient in that regard than its larger cousin, the Jumbo (I have the UTG clone of that bag). Can't say enough good stuff about Maxpedition gear - the molle attachment points make it easy to add a water bottle carrier or camera pouch. Overall, the bag is virtually indestructible, totally functional, and comfortable. Worth every penny.

I have had several of these bags and love them, The material is durable and well made. The compartment is large enough for a primary or a backup which is what I use it for. I can carry all of the things I need with out any problem.
