    Hmmm...
    Looks like Wolf Grey, Multicam Black, Med Navy Beavertails are reading "Sold Out". That may be just a temp issue that @HELM can see to when he's 10-8 again?

    Sorry guys, I passed out just before the witching on this side of the globe. It’s been a long working weekend and the moment I sat on the bed, I was out like a light!

    Bimmer, so with the new order app all the pre-order are now listed as drafts. What this allows me to do is go in and tweak ‘em as needed. Over the next few weeks and months I will get more detailed info on dims, weights, photos, etc shared and we’ll work it from there.

    And yes, I had to tweak the straps to make it more comfortable. I’ve been trying out different foam and neoprene combination to get it improved.

    I agree that the BNB is a heavy fabric indeed. I like it a lot but boy it does make a difference compared to the 500D!

    Chris, we all need to work out more as we get older! Especially me given the abuse I put my body through.

    I will bring the subject of the frame sheet up at the morning meet today. It’s still 0720H so I got time to load up with more coffee before the work day starts!

    I might have missed it but the link for the Austral-asia site takes me to the 2.0 evade instead of the 1.5?:)

    Let’s not even talk about my Inbox right now. I saw the number of unread/new messages and was wondering which part of the world is 5 pm at the moment so I have that excuse to................

    Yeah I was talking to the guys and we’ve decided it would be best to incorporate the PALS wall rather than make it an option. We went back and forth on this until the decision was made that we should standardize it because of the Lite version.

    There’s a link for the Austral-Asia site? Huh must have left that in by mistake. I’ll get cracking on Phase 2 launch sometime today and make that pre-order available on EDC&G shortly, I have to coordinate with them.

    Sorry about that.

    I concur... especially now that the Lite has indeed made the cut. I'm very thankful you guys took that direction, even if it meant streamlining logistics. Absolutely looking forward to these outcomes. All things considered, the current offerings are above and beyond what was expected! Thank you!!

    This may have been discussed about already....what is the anticipated weight differences between say 500D vs 1050D?

    My order for a EV1.5 will probably be going on/in tomorrow. Some prior commitment s going on tonight requiring my focus.

    The 500d weight is posted at 3.8 lbs, the 1050d weight isn’t sampled or published yet

    Did anyone else have to pay before preorder? I’m not getting an option not to when I check out.

    Yeah it shouldn't be doing that... There is no payments being made at the time of preorder. I suspect there a hiccup with the system that Helm can correct on his end. Send him a quick PM if you need.;)

    Hey Norseman
    You can check out some of them on Helm's A19 site... https://www.alphaoneniner.com/collections/bags-cases

    Take a look at the product pages of the Evade (Kryptek camo), Evade 2.0 (Wolf Grey, Multicam black), and Chio Bag (solids and camo in production). I think between these you should be able to get a good idea of the colors he's been using for current production. None of the greens from the Evade 1.5 pre-order options are currently in production for any A19 products on his site, so you won't see any of those.

    For OD Green check SERT's catalog of tactical gear that he produces which does have rifle cases, plate carriers, and pouches made in that color https://sert.us/collections. Have a look at the video run down of the TCC 36" rifle case in OD.

    There's a newer Wolf Grey Diamond Ripstop that came into production last year for the Chio's and presumably is the same one for the Evade 1.5's. I believe it has replaced the older Grey Diamond Ripstop from the original production of the Evade 1.0 two-tone black/grey style.

    Also, there is a new Med Navy Diamond Ripstop that will be debuting in this preorder as well... Pics posted here:

    Helm mentions New Med Navy Diamond Ripstop

    Wow, what a great news!!

    Helm, can I assume that the 500D on EV1.5 would be exactly the same as the 500D on the EV2.0?
    Im loving the texture/feel on myEV10 - 500D and hoping to get the closest one this time.

    I couldn't locate any photos of 'OD' color across your site.
    Maybe Red-Five can share of what the OD looks like?

    Lastly, any possibility to have the med-navy for the 1.5?

    Thanks very much.

    Thanks RED-FIVE. I had already looked around. I wanted to see what they look like in that Typhoon or whatever.
