Has anyone with international shipping received this bag? Mine has been shipping for almost 20 days now. And stuck in processing at transit for 10 days.

Just FYI: this is currently (2018-08-05) $29 on amazon. I don't know how long that price will last though.

Knockoff of what? Rothco isn't a manufacturer. They are a US distributor that gets their name put on cheap unbranded Chinese gear. The $25 bag on Amazon is identical to this one. I own half a dozen, mix of both. ALL these bags are a knockoff of the original Maxpedition design. If you want the real deal, buy the Maxpedition Falcon II.

These are $46 brand new on Amazon, not on sale. So it's pretty laughable you guys say MSRP is $63.

I was going to chime in with the exact same comment. I picked mine up on eBay actually for $20. I have no idea where they got this $63 MSRP from.
Also I should mention the bag is total crap. started falling apart from the inside out.

I bought one of these directly from China for $15.00. But it stank of petrol, which is the typical "Chinese" smell of nylon fabric and toys. It made the bag unusable for me.
I purchased another on Amazon for $25.00, and it still smelled too strongly of petrol to keep.

That is not unusual for actual military surplus gear. It kind of comes with the territory. In the case of these bags which are made in China or India (most Rothco I see is made in India). I think it's just proximity to diesel generators or boat engines.

Pretty sure that this is the bag I have been using for a few years now. It has gone all over the US with me on travel and never had an issue that wasn't my fault.
There is a "hidden" pocket that is held closed by velcro right at the back panel. It is probably intended for a camel back or similar but I have used it for paperwork and other items that I wanted to keep out of sight from "nosy" people.
The zippers have held up without anything other than some chipped paint and the only tear is literally due to over loading it which I fixed by gluing a panel to act as strain relief.
It can fit a Precision M6400 in the back pocket but it is a bit of a challenge to zip shut. I actually am debating buying one from the drop on the off chance that it is the same bag.

I've been using a bag similar to or the same as this (it's got no brand marker) for 6 years now. It's the most durable backpack I have ever used. It survived 4 years of college and 2 years wandering around Europe as my everything pack. If you try really hard and pack smart you can fit 5 days of supplies in this thing, I love it. The color is fading on mine at this point so I'm thinking I need another because burgundyish black isn't my style.

Have had this bag (Condor) for 4 years as an EDC. The only noticeable wear is on the zipper loops which have frayed a bit but are still completely usable. Well worth the money. It is absolutely small/compact though, so keep that in mind.

...speaking of amazon...I enjoyed reading many of the ONE star reviews for this deceptively photographed 'tiny tot' size bag size, mislabeled for inaccurate sizing and poor quality. Love those candid comments. With that, massdrop needs to google some reviews prior to offering something like this. I'll pass. And initially, I almost bit at it. Still appreciate massdrop for what I have bought though.

Shipping and Handling from Massdrop is $8.25 (https://i.imgur.com/L8QV0vj.png) meaning you save a total of 75 cents from the amazon price. At the cost of DRASTICALLY increased shipping time. And this is the supposed lowest special price.

" ESTIMATED SHIP DATE Nov 27, 2017 PT " Compared to free 2 day with Prime and typical 3-4 day delivery without Prime. A full month's difference. For 75 cents.

Think I'm just gonna cancel and order off amazon.

I really wish MD would start showing pictures of people standing with gear. I bought a bag like this one (not a rothco, and from a different site) and as a 6'1" guy on the slightly heavier side, it feels like a bag made for an infant.
I love the bag, and the tons of pockets and crazy amount of space But it's just

While those quotes have some validity, you can do it all day and it won't change the fact that some people simply can't afford anymore for a bag.

From what i know the falcon II isn't very comfortable either, the 1050-Denier nylon makes for an extremely firm silhouette. I personally only buy the most durable bags but in the end its just a bag, if this will make your trips better without breaking your wallet, i would say yeah go for it.Saving money and building your net worth is smarter than buying a 400$ bag just because its "going to last and its made from unicorn bum fluff" regardless of what anybody will tell you, i promise.

The same goes for Red Rock and a whole bunch of others. This does look somewhat better than some other clones I've seen (or bought), but the Maxpedition is the original. None of them, including the Maxpedition, are any good for carrying long distances IMHO. Throwing in and out of a car, sure. For the wilderness you want something more stable, with a wider profile and better straps - again, IMHO.

I'm not saying Rothco makes high quality merchandise, but a link to an anonymous anti-semitic rant is not strong supporting evidence that their bags are poor quality.

This is the exact same configuration called the "3-day tactical Backpack". Rothco didn't invent it. On Amazon, you can find it almost exactly the same under many different name brands for even cheaper. For example: https://www.amazon.com/Military-Tactical-Backpack-Backpacks-Rucksack/dp/B01N2SEA8N/ref=pd_sbs_200_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01N2SEA8N&pd_rd_r=0E1K56PK1D2TK0A6D466&pd_rd_w=yfU1j&pd_rd_wg=cLRSZ&psc=1&refRID=0E1K56PK1D2TK0A6D466.
As for the 3-day tactical backpack configuration, it is extremely well thought out. I use mine every single day for lugging around two laptops and other junk on my motorcycle. I have not seen any real quality differences between similarly priced manufaturers. They are all pretty much made in China now. There is a US made version, but it will cost you at "least" three times as much.

I agree, there are tons of these copy cat bags out there for the same price. If you want quality from what Ive seen in person Voodoo Tactical makes the best 3 day pack. Strong, water proof zippers and water resistant material. Probably going to spend about $100-$120 online. My local surplus store sells it for $89. My no name pack is ripping inside , had it for awhile though. Depends on your usage.

It's made of polyester, which has low abrasion resistance (Compared to Nylon). This is on par with a Jansport (Also 600d polyester).
