Has anyone used the Maxpedition H1 waist pack? I am considering buying one. I want to know other people opinions on the product reliability. <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I don't have the H1, but I have an M1 and a Thermite. If these two are representative of the quality of Maxpedition products - the H1 will be built like a bomb shelter. I'm pleased with the Maxpedition products I have.

I have the Maxpedition Fatboy, and I agree with Wolf, these packs survive serious use and abuse.

So Do I !!
I have a Condor backpack, since may, 2004 and I use it every week day, when working, to carry my portable PC + tools + doc + PSK etc... No sign of wear up to now....
I also have some pouches : M1 (quite small) and M4 (larger ; one is now my toilet kit and sometimes rides my Condor backpack (for overnight stay)).
Same quality. I guess it will be a long time before they show any wear sign..

I've got a Fat Boy S, an M2 pouch, and a 4" tube sheath. My idea was to put either my Wave or my Inova x-5 in the sheath and mount it on the strap, and to put my hard-core outdoor survival gear in the pounch, and mount it on the 'rear' strap. It turned out that the FatBoy holds so much, the accessory pouches are redundant. They are all wonderful. They are very thoughtfully desinged, and extremely well made. There have been some attacks upon the politics of the company on other sites, but even if they are made by starving pygmies forced to use HMOs, i'ts good gear.

I've about boiled my replacement pack decision down to a MaxPed Condor, or a Camelback Motherlode. Any comments? There is a $40.00 Condor knock off on Cheaper Than Dirt, but I think you get what you pay for.

I have an H1. I use it to carry my digicam, tripod, usb cable, spare batteries, manual, and a few other goodies. It's tough as nails and takes a lot of punishment. Still looks as new, too. I added a single strand braid paracord loop for a grab handle.

My one wish for this pack is that it be outfitted with D rings on each side to allow for the addition of a shoulder strap...
