The X41 HiSpeed II has a unique contour shape that tapers at both the top and the bottom, giving the pack an excellent close-to-the-body ride. The pack is fully compressible with pairs of side-mounted compression straps that draw the load upward to optimally position the packs contents over the wearers center-of-gravity. The X41 has two generously sized form-following pockets on the exterior of the upper and lower front flaps. MOLLE-10 lightweight webbing is used, to which you can attach conventional 25mm MOLLE accessories.
The interior features include a hydration sleeve (WX2L and WXP3L hydration systems sold separately), two document / laptop sleeves, a mesh zippered pocket, MOLLE compatible webbing, and a fold-away shelf that allows you to either segregate or combine the top and bottom interior load space. Built in 420 denier ripstop nylon. Comes with our polycarbonate Gossamer frame.

How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
Got the pack in and it appear to be very well thought out and properly built. I was concerned about the size when I first ordered it as I was used to buying larger assault/3-day packs. Once again when I first got it I was somewhat disappointed at the size and space available. But as I went to load it and really thought about my new job and up coming task I found the modularity of it and the well thought out design of the pockets/compartments was a great benefit and made perfect sense for what I planned on using it for, a traveling/day pack. Where as my old packs had large main compartments that could hold all my essential items, I was constantly having to organize it them by the frequency of what I use on top. Plus I would have to find safe secure ways to store a multitude of items. I found myself constantly looking through the whole pack every time I need one little thing. This pack eliminates all that. Everything has its own space and is accessible no matter how I am getting into each compartment. I currently have my essentials loaded and was able to upgrade my load out based on task or weather with ease and plenty of room left over for anything I may need later or come across. Over all the more I use the pack the more I appreciate it and am happy with putting my money into this product and company. It’s also very comfortable to wear no matter the weight or duration.
There’s so much space, and a crap ton of places to store stuff!!!!
I just used this bag in the Philippines, hiking for 6 days in the jungle, one day it was 13 hours of walking, carrying anywheres from 25-60lbs in this bag, in really hard terrain, and thick jungle, ducking under trees and thru brush, and getting ripped by lots of thorns (the bag, not me). I was impressed with how well the bag worked out for me. It was sturdy, as far as I know there are no rips on it, and it went thru a lot, as the terrain was so tough and muddy or really rocky. It was very comfortable, never bothered my back. I like how stuff can be arranged.
It isn't waterproof at all, and doesn't dry very fast, especially the shoulder pads and padding on the back, but that is to be expected. But if in any wet areas, should pack stuff in plastic bags anyways.
Pros - comfort, high quality gear that takes a beating real well, better than other more expensive bags I have used. Good features
Cons - doesn't dry fast, shoulder pads if wearing a thin tshirt can be bothersome a bit, as they are made of mesh, so they sometimes pinch or feel a little bothersome on the skin.
I made some adjustments on this bag for personal use, like cutting out the laptop sleeve, and added a couple compression straps on the bottom.
It is a great bag. I wouldn't buy dry earth for a color again, as it does show dirt a bit, black would be my choice if I could buy again, but this is personal choice. It worked great as a carryon on international flight, right size for it.
Great all around pack with tons of room and features. High quality fabrics and zippers really stand up to the elements and offer a lightweight feel that doesn't burden your shoulders when on a long haul. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great hike in hunting pack or to any service members going on a day patrol.
Great pack, very comfortable and has a lot of space, it’s great for someone that likes to have his gear well organized and quickly accessible
