    Last night my Evade 1.5 tumbled out of a taxi onto the pavement due to my clumsiness...leading to exactly no damage to my tablet or laptop.

    Ouch! I don't care what falls out of a cab, it's still painful! I'm glad all's good!

    Data point: Used the EV1.5 on a recent trip to Asia, flying Eva air, and had no issues with this as my personal carry on item. Thanks to the teardrop/tapered dimensions of the pack, I was able to slide the pack fairly far into the under seat area (top side first, in the premium economy seating area which is tighter than the economy under seat area ironically, due to the center consoles).

    I really like this backpack but I am a little concerned about the pack weight. Does this pack have all day comfort when loaded up with a laptop and the rest of your gear, or is it fatiguing your shoulders?

    It works really well for me. I've had about 10K air miles and a whole lot of walking with the Evade 1.5 since mine got here, and my laptop bag is loaded pretty heavily.

    Thanks for that info. My first EDC bags were heavy Maxpedition packs, but they would start killing my shoulders within an hour or so of carrying them loaded up. Then I went to 511 Covrt 18 and it was a great EDC bag but not very durable. Then I started exploring backpacking bags, but once again the durability wasn’t there with the zipper stitching; however, the lighter weight made it very comfortable. I am back to find a more durable solution and I know the tradeoff is in weight and hopefully not all day carrying comfort.

    The hours are quickly passing by today so before it hits the witching hour, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support of Alpha One Niner. This has been one heck of a year and if the last 2 months is any indication of what we can expect going into 2020, I am totally psyched! So from all of us here at Alpha One Niner, best wishes to you and yours for a healthy and prosperous New Year!

    Been using the 1.5 for a while now, dang good followup to the original Evade, if a bit on the heavy side.

    A question for @HELM , will there be another production run on the 1.5 Lite? Wanted to score a 1.5 Lite in Two-Tone Ripstop, but seems I was late to the draw...

    Of course! We are looking at early to mid March for the next delivery. Don’t fret cos the 1.5 will continue to be in production!

    Peeps, 2nd Pre-Order for both the Full and the Lite are up at www.alphaoneniner.com

    We ended getting so many requests for the wait list that it only made sense to simply open up a new pre-order!

    Is the second preorder version going to have lockable zipper pulls for the CCW pocket?
