    Well, actually, it does, indeed, prove what happened in that particular sample. Whether the inductive reasoning is true or not is the real question.

    Forgot to mention; That has happened to me in Europe. I would not be surprised if it had happened in an Arab country, but then again, when ever i have gone to an Arab country, i have made sure not to take anything with me that would identify me as an infidel crusader.

    T.H Cone; I hope you can convince your missus about your need for another bag:) I hope you do, so you´ll get yourself one fine bag:)

    I meant in extrapolation of predicting future results.

    No. You said it proved what happened in that situation and went on about what the real question is.

    ^ inductive reasoning is extrapolation, no?

    I never heard that phrase before. I was objecting to the Well, actually, it does, indeed, prove what happened in that particular sample.
    It seemed unnecessary.

    ^ Well, in the end, it is all unnecessary. But I do enjoy these conversations, Mat.

    OTOH, all of the hooplah surrounding not having anything with MOLLE/PALS webbing on it for fear of increased scrutiny is just that...hooplah. Or, maybe just mumbojumbo! :cool:

    Correct. I don't care either way. Tactical is just not my style. Doesn't mean I don't like. And of course people profile. Don't judge a book by it's cover....We all do. The more holograms and fancy colors the better. Black trench coat with balck glasses , and combat boots. yup, they get treated different. Doesn't matter that people won't admit it. We are a jaded group to even answer these questions.

    There was only one time someone took any interest in my Kodiak.. Eastern egg hunt on white house lawn I was stopped by secret service but not as a threat but to ask me about it.. He pulled out a small tape measure to size up the main compartment.. He was looking for a bag for the p90 he was recently issued.

    I do profile everyone as well. And I know, because I am a thinking human unit, that the lunatic with the firearm, bomb or machete might have a North Face pack or even a Lowe Alpine. The really goal driven nutters are going to be carrying something like that and NOT something that looks "tactical," anyway. I don't trust ANYBODY that I do NOT know...and some of them that I do know I don't trust them because I do know them. :cool:

    Have that same bag. Mine has to be like 20 years old. Still use it every now and again. Same color blue, actually. How old is that, BTW?

    Gotta be 15-20ish years old. I wanted another one at one point and they have been discontinued for a very long time. Lowe alpine contour Mountain 40. Nice pack, dude!

    ^ Well, that explains why they are the same color, duh! I'm not too bright sometimes. I guess we own a true classic. I'm going to take mine out for a walk tomorrow; we both deserve the fresh air.

    This is a great bag - I cannot believe I have never seen this before. I may need to own one. Tough to figure out how big it is, I would love to see pictures of it "in action". Are the shoulder straps comfortable or just for show?

    It is a great pack. I've never used the waist belt, but who needs one for a smaller pack anyway?
