    How much bigger is it? Do you like it? How much more did it cost?

    Who, what, and why is a Fatboy Jumbo? Sounds like a gang nickname of an overly corpulent member... :confused:

    I have one, and I love it. I've never owned an original Fatboy, so I can't really give a good size comparison.

    Did you buy it somewhere locally? I was going to see if Brigade had them in stock so i could compare it to my current fatboy.

    I really, really like! I'm going to browse that site and start thinking about getting one....

    Those that have one have you:
    Snowshoed, hiked, mountain biked or backpacked with one?

    Yeah they work well for hiking, backpacking, etc...Very sturdy...Once you get it loaded out the way you want, between the weight and the slung over shoulder strap, its pretty darn secure...

    Bad back

    side loading hurts a lot, so I pancake. When out in the wild I sholder holster it with a cammel pack for H2O and snaks.

    I ordered mine online. Brigade wasn't stocking them when I got it, but they do have a Maxpedition rack, so they might have some now.

    I called them and they said they only carry the regular fatboy. I am going up there today in the morning, and maybe pick up a monsoon.

    Funny, this thread reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where he was wearing a purse sold to him as a "satchel". :D

    Curious, in the idea of CCW - wouldn't most people in the know for something this specialized know that you are probably packing?

    My tactical man-purse is purple, and doesn't look like a holster.

    And it was made by Uncle Mike's...

    If I need more hauling capability, I usually walk over to the table that sells cheapo backpacks.

    I got one, and I'm very happy with it...I had a regular and now a Jumbo...the Jumbo is certainly designed differently, but...I like it. I have several packs attached to it, and will post pics soon of the setup.

    Thats what I said at first, but then I realized that I don't carry the fatboy everywhere I go like I used to...
