Thanks for sharing Akilae. So far I have enjoyed reading everybody's thoughtful personal musings, perspectives, and experience on how they use their gear. I think that is why I appreciate this forum as I do for it provides a place for individuals to come together and freely share ideas. Thank you to everyone who has taken time to express what is important to you concerning your edc, and the method you use when organizing your packs. I started this thread to encourage those interested to share their personal thoughts on what they would hope to see in a new version of the Evade Pack. There has been a lot of good discussion. I hope everyone who is interested will stay engaged and continue to feel free to share even if it’s just a “wish list”. Even if your suggestion are not integrated it still becomes part of public record. I’m really glad to have had the chance to read through Helm’s threads on his Manufacturers Corner - Alpha One Niner (bags & gear) forum : New crowdsourced product developments as we go along...... https://www.edcforums.com/threads/new-crowdsourced-product-developments-as-we-go-along.122106/ Reserve your EVADE backpacks here! https://www.edcforums.com/threads/reserve-your-evade-backpacks-here.128247/ .....threads leading up through the release of the Evade in 2015 as many of you know. Also saw that we have some knowledgeable folks around here and I appreciate your candor. It was good to understand how he works through the process... very informative. I respect the fact that in the end it’s Helm’s job to sort it all out, and that the Evade concept is not lost. Honestly, I don’t envy him .... running 3 brands, traveling 1,000’s of miles a year, juggling gov contracts, and all the while a family man. Yet still he finds time to chat about nylon, velcro, and water bottle pockets on a Sunday afternoon. Not many out there doing that. It’s to be commended!! I still believe A19’s going to bring all their efforts together and make an solid pack.
