    Here's the news we've all been waiting for!

    "UPDATE on the Evade 1.5s……………….

    FYI tentative ship out date for the Evade 1.5s is now Nov 18th (Mon). Unfortunately we need to step in and assist with another critical project so we have to put the EV1.5s aside and get back on it late next week.


    Emails will be sent sometime around Nov 7-8th to all those who pre-ordered; need you to confirm your respective orders. Once you’ve confirmed that will be followed by another email to ask that you finalize your orders (ie pay for it!). And we’ll start shipping out on Nov 18th.

    Some of you have already reached out to me directly (or EDC&G) about changes to your order. If you don’t see these changes reflected by the time you get that first email, just let us know.

    Those that supported the Evade 2.0 program all know that it takes awhile for us to get to everyone’s orders out but we never rest on our laurels, we hustle every day to get those orders taken care of. As it stands right now demand for the EV1.5 has totally eclipsed that of its bigger sibling.

    FYI I am going to have my hands full these two weeks so please don’t fret if I can’t revert on your PM or email promptly.

    Thanks all for your continued support."

    EVADE 1.5 PREORDER RELEASE RECAP:

    • NOV. 7-8th Confirmation Email will be sent...Confirm your Preorder.
    • Finalize Payment Email will then be sent... Pay for your Preorder.
    • NOV. 18th "tentative" EVADE 1.5 Preorder Shipping Date.

    Concerning the depth of the EV1.5 main compartment and overall depth...

    "FYI for the main compartment the EV1 was only 4" deep. The EV2 is 5" and the EV1.5" is the same as the EV2 at 5". So if you measured the overall depth of the EV1.5, it's apprxo 7" versus the EV1's 6" - Helm."

    Did Helm ever get weight details of the 420D ripstop? Saw the EV2 was 4.4 in 500d and 4.2 in 420d, but keen to see if it’s worthwhile changing my E1.5 order to 420d to save a little weight.

    Hey sportsfame18!
    The official preorder period for the Evade 1.5's has come to a close. You may have noticed the links to the preorder pages no longer work. Helm disabled the product pages to do a final tally of preorders.

    He has mentioned several times that they always try to produce extras to meet demand for those who did not preorder. (Most recently in the video rundown of the EV1.5 Lite Multicam Black version)
    Here's the link to that post and Helm's FB video...
    https://www.edcforums.com/threads/alpha-one-niner-evade-1-5-version-announced.140464/page-9#post-2703492

    Since it will always be a limited first come first serve basis, I recommend contacting them and letting them know you're interested... They will be able to advise you on availability from there.

    https://www.alphaoneniner.com/pages/contact

    Let us know how it works out for you.
    ;)

    Thank you! Searching for a do it all bag is very difficult especially when ordering online. I’m wanting the Ranger Green. Looks real nice in different lighting

    No worries race! It's all good. We'll all get to share the spoils soon! Just glad to see the progress @HELM has made so far!
    ;)

    The RG looks great... Would be an excellent choice.

    Roger that!

    I suspected that may be the case. Demand for the EV1.5's remains high... higher than the EV2. The OD and Ranger Green colorways were listed on the product pages as limited!...

    * Available in:
    * 500D Solids incl Black, Wolf Gray, OD and Ranger Green (limited!)
    * 500D Camo incl Multicam, MC Black, Kryptek Mandrake and Kryptek HIghlander.
    * 420D Diamond Ripstop incl Black, Wolf Gray, Med Navy and 2-Tone combo (Black/Wolf Gray)
    * 1050D Ballistic Nylon Black
    * Lining is 210D Gray Ripstop Nylon.


    I recall during the Evade 2.0 preorder release, Helm mentioned 2/3 of the production stock was ordered up on the day of the preorder launch. After all the preorders were filled and the holidays passed, Helm did come back and introduce a second EV2 preorder in Jan. 2019...

    Maybe they'll have some other colors left over after preorders are filled. Things remain fluid during the preorder period until all the preorders are confirmed and shipped.

    I can't speak for @HELM or his company, but it wouldn't surprise me if they made more if there was enough demand.

    Right... I have to agree with you. Also, it would not be the first time it has happened. Though, some of the surplus fabrics Helm pulled out for the preorder existed in various quantities. Future Evade 1.5's colors options and availability may diminish as they sell out... or not. We'll see!

    If there's one thing I've learned about Helm...

    He's full of surprises!

    Looks like the pre order link for the 1.5 has been taken down from EDCG Singapore. Hopefully we aren’t far off confirmation emails.
