The Typhoon is considered small when it comes to packs, but one can still fit a decent amount of goodies inside. The general shape and layout is like the Falcon, but the 1 thick shoulder strap design puts this pack in the gearslinger class. The shoulder bag design allows for quick equipping and a more stable platform than using 1 strap on a normal backpack. When extra security is needed the waistbelt will get you there. The Y cinch strap is used here again which works well, but I take it off to get to my zippers more easily. Luckily taking off the straps is easy and non permanent. All the padding in the back and the main strap make this pack a fairly comfy ride. A snap loop is on top to allow one to secure the main and or upper small compartment zippers. I like how one side is webbing while the other side has a mag/flashlight pouch and GP pouch. The hydration pouch, although smaller, still has loop velcro to allow modular velcro accessories and 2" velcro webbing on the front to interface with Maxpedition sheath accessories. I'll continue to beat up on this pack, my friend wants to try a 2nd slim shoulder strap messenger bag style on it instead of the waist strap. Currently available in Black, OD Green, Khaki, and ACU.

My friend has been using this pack for a while and generally loves it, but didn't like the waist strap. He does a lot of biking so had the idea to add a cross-strap. I tried using the belt connection point at first, but he preferred higher up so I used the side flashlight pouch as point. To make sure the pouch would still close well I added loop velcro to the strap. The other end SRB was then sewn to the main shoulder strap. End result was a more happy buddy.
