    I noticed that too I use the large one on the right in the 1.0 for a flashlight, but saying that I'm so excited for the mods in 2.0 that if it means putting my flashlight somewhere else I'm sure I will survive

    Looking over the type 01 panel I noticed a small (fourth slot) to the right of the third pen slot. You can clip gear into this slot like a light or multitool ect., and it will hang on the face of the admin.

    (Added to my CHIO posts)...

    Thank you so much, as always Helm!

    Just installed the new straps and the only issue seems to be the buckle (quick release) is touching the inner arm and the thin-padding but Im grateful that it's solved. Thanks again and sorry for the rest of the guys that I posted this up on the wrong thread.

    [​IMG] I have a question with the new admin panel options.
    Does this mean that thew new one will no longer has a big slot that can fit a Webbie (5.5" x 8.25" notebook)?

    In all previous EV2 samples, that zippered pocket is included on the removable velcro admin/organizer. Also, the samples featured an additional full width, zippered pocket on the back wall of the admin section. This makes a total of three zipped pockets in the admin compartment.

    Barely visible:

    Thanks RF, I guess the big slot would still be there then. It's just the 2 medium size slots would be gone and replaced with the zippered now.

    Thanks again.

    The medium slots are still there... located on the velcro admin behind the pen slots.

    Better pics of them here:

    Looking forward to seeing the production sample.

    Yeah, derrr, I saw it after I asked you and forgot to say never mind. Lol pricing TBD, but most likely similar to original Evade. Thanks for the reply.

    I remember it was discussed earlier to make one version of the Evade 2.0 with the removable organizer, and one with a standard non-removable organizer like in the 1.0. What was decided in the end @HELM ?

    I was not on this forum when the 1st gen was developed so for me it is really cool to see the concept of the new pack come to fruition.

    I just can't wait to see some pictures and video of the final product.

    Checking back through the various threads, I don't think I missed it, but is there any expected ordering/production timeframe?

    I know it's said to be a push for Christmas, one would assume that realistically means final sample would need to be completed any day so ordering can commence in November with live production and shipping to hit the holiday?

    (Trying to plan out a timeline of defenses as the wife sees the charge on the account.)

    EDIT: Reviewing the original Evade threads, it looks like the waitlist started in April with initial deliveries coming August and backordered shipments in Sept-Nov (though that was a running full scale production). With that, is it safe to assume it would be final samples and payment for the holidays, and delivery sometime in Feb/March 2019?

    All - As a follow-up to this post/question, @RED-FIVE provided a great link to Tom Bihn that talked about materials. This may be helpful to others and wanted to send it out. https://www.tombihn.com/pages/materials
