I bought the larger of the two, then went back and bought the strappettes (shoulder straps), as it felt like the load was too high on the belt, making the pack roll backwards, away from me. This has been a good solution for me. The single shoulder strap included with the pack makes for a good short-distance option.

No affiliation, just a happy customer.

I found out this week, mine is just big enough to carry a hardcover book. Useful.

I've been running the Maxpedition Entity for the past several weeks. I'm not really happy with the zipper but I do like the ability to swing it around front for quick access.

With the additional EDC of a mask and hand sanitizer, I find a sling bag is necessary.
