    Unlurking for this:

    5.11 has posted new editions of their Rush Delivery bag. Not much info yet, but it looks somewhat promising.

    Nice! That Mike Messenger looks like it might be a nice mid-sized bag. Looks like 5.11 made some design improvements also. I might wait for them to come out with it in the OD Trail colorway and then source one to do a review.

    I'm guessing the first initial of the name denotes size? Mike Lima xray, medium large xl? Might have to look into the 2 smaller sizes if I opt for a larger messenger at some point.

    Does anyone see the velcro being all the way around the outside of the bag as being a disadvantage at all? I kinda like the original more with having regular molle around the bag and only a small area set aside for hook and loop. Too much velcro on this bag? I always found that the loop part of velcro collects lots of debris.

    Agree on those extended velcro. However, there are those that take pride in patches so that would be fine for them. Myself is okay with the original but there is something on the look of this new version that's give it a kick, must be the colours and the aligned velcro\molle webbing which appears to be one material from front to side.

    Does anyone have both the old version and one of the new Lima/X-ray bags? Trying to determine how they match up size-wise to the original.

    Lima is the equivalent size of the original, mike is the smallest, while X-ray is the largest of the brood!

    For what its worth, it looks like the Lima is actually a smidge smaller than the original Rush Delivery. Everything I can find on the original bag says that the main pouch is 11x17x5, while 5.11 lists the Lima as 11x17x4. I can't say whether or not it's actually different or if they just changed the way they measure, but it is at least a little smaller on paper.

    I thi
    think the original measured the whole interior including laptop sleeve, in the new version, its an inch short because they probably didn't include it. Don't think they will downsize because 5" is just right; 1" for laptop and 4" for lunch bag!

    biggest problem I had with original was the fact that it was WAY too narrow: with anything meaningful in inside pockets, main compartment would only contain something rather thin. Lunch container was bulging pretty bit time.

    Normal messenger bags usually have wedge shape to some extend, wide at the bottom. Original delivery was constant width and generally really sucked when i tried to carry something other than tablets, books and notebook.
