    @HELM concerning revisions to the Evade 2.0 zipper size...

    Did you also up size any of zippers to YKK #10? I believe there was a sample shown with this revision?

    I did but I sized it down 'cos the #10 was not as smooth as the reverse #8 and personally it wasn't as slick a look. I felt it was overkill for such a pack. Gotta show you a video of the pack I tested with something else in mind. Let me go look or it.

    @HELM Will you consider adding navy blue cordura to the list of colors to preorder? Figure it would sell well, beeing both low key and a little more decorative than black. If thats your thing ;)

    And come'on...who doesnt love blue?

    Speaking of colors... Anyone else thinking about Kryptek Typhon as color option... possibly future production runs? Actually, I think we're fortunate to get the colors we did... considering his busy production schedule.

    Still, the three types of fabric 420D, 500D, and new 1050D are nice options.

    Yup, I’m torn between the 420D and 1050D. I was planning on getting one version this time since I ordered 3 on version 1.0 haha. May end up ordering 2 this time.

    I was hoping on seeing the two tone 420D but the all black isn’t bad either.

    I was planning on just a black 500D until ballistic was mentioned as an option. I love me some ballistic even if only because it doesn’t hold pet hair like 500D does. I’m going to try both because I have no self control.

    I'm curious now what is there difference between the 500D and the 1050 ballistic? Is it true 500D is more resistant to abrasion and ballistic is more resistant to tear?

    Good question. As a dog owner, I just know that the 500D & 1000D Cordura is a pet hair magnet. Ballistic nylon and Tom Bihn’s parapack seem to repel it (and most stains as well)

    That's funny Chris!! Lol, I remember that! Oh man I was gonna say... ONLY TWOOOO!! You're showing quite a bit of restraint. Good job!!
    ;)

    Admittedly, I'm still kinda thinking... hmmm three? That was really hard. Black 500D or Black 1050D. Ahhh!!

    Yeah, I'm still wondering about the 1050D myself... I guess weight could an concern. But then I think, "Oh but it's a limited run!" Well, if it proves popular, maybe it will earn a permanent spot in the line up.

    Glad we have each other as a support group! LoL Welcome to Evade users anonymous! Look what @HELM has done to us! :frantic::cold::help:

    I hear you guys on the texture of the different fabrics. 420D has been really friendly in those regards. Something to keep in mind if you have pets.

    The only 1050D I have currently have are the 5.11 Rush Series. To be honest, I'm hoping the Evade 2.0 in 1050D is popular enough that it stays in the line up. We'll see....

    @Rainy - dude I'll add a few Blues just for you, A19-EV2-BL

    @RED-FIVE - I love my Typhon but it was not a bid seller for us at all. So I will add a few if anyone's interest.

    @Chris C - surprising enough the two-tone didn't sell as well as the others.

    @BTG108 - correcto mundo, the 1050D is easier with doggie or cat hair.

    Personally, if black is the color of choice, then I would pick the 1050D ballistic nylon; it's tad heavier and pricier too but when you load that Evade up, you can't tell the difference. I look at it this way, if you need something more 'dressier', the 1050D BN is the way to go, it's got that Tumi-ish look to it.

    Sad to hear about the two tone. I like the smooth finish of the BN and toughness just not sure on the gloss portion. I’m pretty sure you’ll post some pics when you get them.

    Will the beavertail match the same material as the bag material?
