It's annoying me greatly that you feel the need to call Maxpedition "crud" after one item that you won't even bother to exchange to see if it's a fluke. There's plenty of Maxped haters out there so I guess one more doesn't matter, but I really think you're selling these guys short. They seem like decent folks, they respond to feedback pretty well and they change their designs to answer that feedback when it's feasible. Certainly there are alternatives to Maxpedition, but you talk about "drinking the Kool-aid" hey, Kool-aid is good! And then you've basically recommended Flavor-ade instead! (to use your analogy).
Look at it this way, Ford made the GT40, it was a bad ass race car. Ford also made the Pinto. Chevy made the Corvette...and the Chevette. Basing your entire opinion off of 1 crappy backpack is a little silly.
Your words make me cry. You have some good points. I should probably do a return/exchange...
