Maxpedition Merlin Folding Backpack 360 Degree Review

A Maxpedition folding backpack found at Rolls up like a rollypoly dump pouch but then zippers shut. Opens up to a 1080 cu. in. full sized backpack. Great for storing in a car, bring along in your luggage, for day trips and short excursions.

  1. @HACKTCAVEMAN I appreciate that. Yeah, I’m looking at some fishing gear packs now and all I can get on the entire internet is the same single stock photo of the bag. Argh!

  2. @TellinYouLikeItIs haha, you know, one of these times a black bear is going to walk through the background. Seriously!! So glad I can help with my reviews. That’s what its all about. I enjoy it too!

  3. Great video

    Be honest now, you set the cameras up in the woods because you are trying to catch evidence of bigfoot.

    Seriously though, I have watched all your reviews and wanted to say thank you. I have gotten a couple of Maxpedition’s products and am fully impressed. I think you do a great job reviewing them and allow someone to make an informed decision on what would work best for them. Thanks again, would also love to see more reviews from you in the future when you get the time.

    Awesome review! Thanks for going into detail. I wish the companies themselves did this good on advertising. I just built my second BOB, a Condor 3-day, and I also just bought an Eberlestock G-4, so I do want this Merlin for an E&E attachment. Keep up the great work!

  7. Thanks for another great review. I’m glad I saw your review. I’ve been looking at the Rollypolly series of folding daypack sort of thing. The Merlin looks really big, almost too big, for a secondary daypack attachment.
    Thanks again.

    Looks like it needs some PALS on the side towards the bottom.

  9. I live 30mins from south padre island so it would make a sweet beach pack…..

  10. haha I never wanted a NeatFreak until I saw GearBuyersGuide make one. Now I have one. 🙂 It’s replaced my Proteus for EDC, for now, and is working well for me. I still need to get some kind of pouch for the outside as the outside pockets get tight and can’t fit my keys or phone. Stay tuned, I’ll see if I can get a review done for ya! -Roz
