Made of extremely durable ballistic Nylon, the RiftCore from Maxpedition is a heavy duty, water-resistant and versatile 23 litres backpack. This highly practical pack comes with two large compartments, two front pockets and a built-in internal pocket for CCW storage.

The backpack's lockable main compartment, which has a full clamshell opening comes with two-way zip closure, expandable mesh pocket with dual zipper access, zippered small pocket and large inner sleeve pocket, which can easily accommodate laptops, tablets or netbooks up to 13" in size or be used together with dual hydration ports and drainage grommet as hydration reservoir. The middle compartment comes with multiple loop-lined adjustable straps that can be repositioned to make organising contents much easier, making it ideal as CCW storage. Behind the comfortably padded and breathable back, there is a separate two-way accessed zipped second CCW compartment, which is fully loop-lined with soft material.

Moreover, the RiftCore backpack has two pockets at the front, the bottom one functions as an admin compartment, and comes with zippered mesh pocket, multiple sleeves, nylon strap with Keeper carabiner, and top fleece-lined EVA pocket as a storage of sunglasses or other fragile items. Heavily padded shoulder straps with adjustable chest strap and wide removable waist belt with quick release UTX Duraflex buckle help to distribute weight evenly throughout the upper body which ensures comfortable carry even for long periods of time. Additionally, RiftCore features durable grab handle, quadruple side compression straps, and many numerous PALS webbing for easy attachment of optional accessories.

The RiftCore Backpack is a perfect solution for a domestic or international traveller who needs a rugged and practical pack with maximum space and instant accessibility.
