Unfortunately living in the San Francisco Bay Area, getting a CCW is only a dream. They don't want the peasants to be armed. If you are blessed enough to live in the free part of America where you can carry, the S-Type is great for a righty who carries a strong side belt holster. It is also good for righties carrying a weapon in the pack if you like using a cross draw presentation. For lefties you'd be using a strong side presentation.
The pack is extremely durable. It will last longer than you will.
The stitching, buckles and zippers are done to perfection
The options on the way to use this bag are endless.
The ability to keep your stuff separated and organized is a real time saver.
Cons: (There are only two that I've noticed after a year of use)
There should be a carry handle like they finally put on the Jumbo.
The strap for the main cover buckle could be longer. The ability for the main cover to hold down a tripod or jacket without tying it to the bottom would be a big plus.
Update: There is another thing I wish Maxpedition would change about the Mongo Versipack. It would be nice to have a variation that doesn't have the phone holder and just has the molle webbing on both sides. It would more customizable that way. If you don't need the phone holder you could put something else there if you want, or just save the weight and not put anything there.
Part of why I got the S-Type Mongo even though I am right handed and tend to carry bags on the right side rather than left like the S-type does is I also have the Kodiak Gearslinger, which only comes in a sling over the left shoulder. The S-Type Mongo slings on the right shoulder. By getting the S-Type I am able to use both bags when needed to increase the load ability. The Mongo's waist strap is very useful when doing this to transfer that weight.
Something to consider when you go looking at the Mongo packs. If you are thinking of getting (or have) a Kodiak or one of the other Gearslinger series the S-Type Mongo enables you to use them both.
