This is why you watch multiple videos about a product: We don’t all agree on every single point. The Falconer 30 is an exceptional organizational backpack. But my view on how it’s best used doesn’t necessarily match everyone else’s. For one, backpacks and backpack FIT is going to vary greatly from person to person. That’s why when you go buy a “backpacking” backpack from a big retailer, they generally will “Fit” you for it because you’ll be carrying a lot of weight great distance.
I see (ALL) tactical packs as short-distance packs. The one exception is the (discontinued) ILBE. That did not work for the military because of the other gear they have to wear. The ILBE was designed more like a backpacker pack. (NOTE: Although my video on the Falconer 30 showed the waist strap removed, it was used in hiking testing)
The lesson presented here is, I think the Falconer 30 is an exceptionally built pack. It all comes down to how you plan to use it.
