Maxpedition Baron Duffel Bag

Sometimes you don't need a lot of pockets - just one big one. That's what this bag is. Maxpedition makes this basic, "load-out" duffel in three sizes; the Baron (small), the Imperial (medium) and the Sovereign (large). This one is the small in Khaki/Foliage:

It's nothing fancy, but it's not meant to be. It's a solid basic duffel with a minimum of frills. It has dual carry handles that secure together with velcro, an adjustable strap which is not removable and a drag handle on each end. It also meets FAA carry-on requirements.On one side there is a small zippered pocket and a 3 x 4½ velcro square for attaching patches. There is a pair of compression straps under the carry handles:
 The single zipper opens to reveal one big compartment. No other pockets in here:

The othe side has three rows of PALS webbing for the attachment of MOLLE style pouches or other accessories. That is a Maxpedition Small TacTile next to it:

Here is the TacTile attached:

TacTiles are awesome. I will do another post about them later.

Here is a shot of one of the drag handles:

In case you were curious, here is a pic of the chairs you see in the background:

They're just a couple of folding chairs I found in a dumpster and painted. They go along with my philosophy of re-using old stuff. (I got the gargoyle at Target).

If you are looking for a good quality basic duffel bag, this is one worth considering. I know that there are cheaper bags out there, but Maxpedition's quality speaks for itself and makes for a better value in the long run.
