    Take a look on Amazon, that's where I got mine from, survival depot are out of stock at the moment. I am sure that there is a distributor in Holland as I remember seeing someone doing a review on a bag that they'd purchased there...?
    Mine should be here today, just had the email telling me it's out for delivery.

    Oh oh, I just checked the Vanquest page. There is an other Fastpack in 7x10". Allmost same price as the 5x8".

    And bad news, they have the FTIM in 2 sizes, FTIM-Husky and FTIM-Slim. I bought the slim today. Hard to get in Germany, but still possible. I ordered it in the UK.

    Yeah, I saw that as well, it's not been out long.

    Mine has been delivered today. I don't have photo bucket at the moment so I can't add photos but if you're on Instagram, I'm coolerking666 and I've put some photos on.

    The guy on YouTube is in Germany I think... Learningtobeprepared or something similar...? He does a lot of vanquest stuff.

    I've seen a review on that 7x10 and find it huge. Great looking btw, but a little too big to disappear inside a backpack. That doesn't take away that I find it awesome!

    I'm probably trying to put too much stuff in the 5x8

    The question is: do you need al the extra stuff? If so, it's justified to buy the 7x10. :)

    And that is the million dollar question.... Do we need any of it
    I am probably wanting to be prepared for too many possible situations.

    I'll see how I get on with the 5x8 for now before I think about getting a bigger one

    That was my dilemma, too. Load it up with more stuff or just take the basics?? That's a different answer for each individual.

    I've seen a video from Preparedmind101 on Youtube that I find interesting about "The 95/5 Equation" which is worth watching. Be prepared, he talks a lot. But I like his videos, because they contain a lot of helpful information.
