    Capt, it will match the lining you choose. So if you choose the Pathfinder with the red lining, it will come with a matching Type 1!

    Anyone else received their Pathfinder? I’ve carried mine the last couple of days. I’m really liking the design/layout, hardware choices and the X42 fabric. Typical Alpha One Niner quality and attention to detail. This will be my weekday EDC - geared more towards work/office needs. My Evade 1.0 will get a much deserved break (after almost 5 years of use) and will pull part time duty on weekends.

    I’ll try to post some pics when work eases up.

    Glad you like the Pathfinder! That would cool to see some pixs of it! Man I can’t believe the first Evade is already that old, wow.

    Overnight trip to visit my kids/grandkids for the first time since Covid hit. Teamed up with my Weekender that has logged over a hundred 2-3 day trips (and still looks new).

    Plenty of room for an IFAK, organizer pouches, snacks, etc. The Matroskya pouch is covering a Sneaky Bags double Penguin pouch. The double Penguin, and the single Penguin pouch beside it, are attached to the Velcro strips on the back panel.

    iPad is tucked away in the tablet sleeve. I like the location of the admin section.

    Looking sharp... thanks for sharing!
    :smile_coffee:

    P.s. Would that be a Vanishing Point in the admin?

    Good eye! Yes, it’s the matte black VP. I’ve only had it a couple of weeks, but so far so good.

    Man I’m glad to see you’re getting a lot of good mileage out of your Weekender!

    It’s a great bag. I didn’t show it in the pics, but in addition to my clothes it’s loaded with the Recon 8 Dopp kit, passport organizer and the iPad caddie. Very thoughtful that the Weekender was designed to work in a modular fashion with these accessories.

    As for the Pathfinder, I’m liking it more every day. It carries really well and the X42 material looks great (seems like it will be very durable too). I wasn’t sure how I would like the magnetic buckles, but I’m starting to get spoiled by them.
