Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost too bigHave been using this as an out of county bag and now as a station bag. The reason i switched it to my station bag (clothes, bedding, station stuff, etc) from being my out of county bag is that it is big. Now the straps do tighten it up a little but it is still bigger than my True North black hole duffel that is now my red bag. The flexibility is excellent and i can organize everything in the bag how i want it. The only other problem is the metal hooks on the straps used to tighten the pack up will bend if you yoke on them like most firefighters do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flight MonsterThe Flight Monster is a the whole package when it come to Hot Shot commercial travel and spiking out. One crew member can fit a pinch more than the required gear needed for long interagency assignments. One crew can easily fit all sleeping bags and thermarests into 10 flight monsters for the standard Hot shot spike out. The multiple features designed into this gear make this a highly versatile cargo pack for all wildland fire operators. I especially like the ability to stow the back pack straps for a more streamlined profile when internal and cargo net helicopter missions are assigned. The compression features designed into the pack make it easy to achieve a low profile when loading less gear. This gear is water resistant and super durable. There is few reasons the flight monster wouldn't last 10-20 years on a Hot Shot crew before needing replacement. Do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great BagThis is a huge improvement over the standard issued Red Bag for many reasons. First, it is not red! Second, the size will hold everything you could possibly want for even a 21 day assignment. Third, the stow away straps make it easier to load/unload without snagging. Lastly, the built-in laundry bag is genius. It allows the filthy stuff not to contact the clean stuff and that is awesome. The quality you can only get from Mystery Ranch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll be looking for things to packI was skeptical when I opened the packaging... Can it REALLY fit everything I would need for 14+ days? Sure does. Fit my pack, a full red bag, extra chaps, comms stuff, helmet, and boots. And as always, built like a tank!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional Bag!Purchased the bag for a replacement red bag. Everything needed for a 14 day assignment fits including a tent and spare boots. I understand having them but the amount of handles and straps is overwhelming. One thing I do not like is if you decide to use your backpack straps you can’t zip the pocket they store in because it has to remain unzipped when in use. Also the material is a little thinner than I expected but should hold up. Over all great bag just keep wasn’t quite 5 stars for me because of those issues.
