So it seems I have conviced Santa to bring me an Evade for Christmas. But I am torn on color and fabric. Narrowed it down to black or gray Cordura or black ripstop. Have a TNF Recon now in black and really like the durability especially of the heavier fabric on the bottom. What do you guys think between rip stop and Cordura for durability and does anyone know if the grey is like a charcoal or if it is lighter? I know I can always ask Helm but would like you to chime in too.
