    I'm sorry, I never thought I have a chance to use it, but today is the day.

    "I'm sorry" says T.H.Cone

    HA!

    You get the Marine Corps response -- I AGREE!!!

    You red card me?

    I'm taking that as an honor.

    I forgot to come back and follow up sooner. The spark plugs and O2 sensor in my wife's Acadia resolved her check engine light and rough idle. I got all the work done before the holidays and we have put a bunch of miles on it, trouble free.

    Thanks for the input, and this was one O2 that wasn't changed unnecessarily.

    For anyone interested the new versions of Vanquest bags now have photos on their website under "upcoming projects"...

    Loving the new organizer I've recently picked up; the "huge" maximizer...

    Fits perfectly in the slip pocket of the S19.

    Not sure how I fell about the new MOBIUS. I wonder if there are YT vids yet?

    Nothing has popped up on my subs and I'm subbed to all the major gear review channels...

    I still don't like slings, but the new Mobius is interesting with the ITS style organizer pull out in the front...

    Also thought that the pocket layout was a little strange, but I'll reserve judgement for now.

    Oh, thanks.:nah_disagree:




    lol
    Here are my issues.

    Two pockets capable of taking a 32oz. bottle are overkill on a smallish bag. I guess that they are trying to make it both right and left handed compatible. I'm also dubious as to how the h2o pocket stays collapsed when not in use; perhaps, I'm thinking, a big slab of velcro that is prawn to wearing out? Also, will whatever closure system they use keep the side pockets stable if they are loaded with heavy items?

    As an aside, I noticed that the h2o pockets on the messenger bag force the bottle(s) to ride pretty high and rely on shock cord to keep the top stable. Let's just say I have my doubts.

    Anyway, being a dude who carries trauma gear, I like ITS styled pocket. It intrigues me with all the possibilities. It would certainly be faster than keeping the majority of that stuff in the main pocket as I do now. However, based on how I organize my current edc bag, I'm not sure I could give up that front pocket as a utility/catch-all pocket.

    I would have been perfectly happy if they just add a slip pocket behind the side pocket, cleaned up the h2o pocket, and added the full clamshell pocket to the front.

    Like you said, we'll have to reserve judgement until we get an up close look at all the details.

    Haha...

    My thought was that the major channels were more likely to be present at the show given that their probably looking at a decent revenue stream from new product vids and that the smaller channels still have to go to work at a real job.

    Hey subscribers (and everyone else that through a series of errant/misfortunate clicks ended up here)...

    Don't forget that ShotShow 2016 is going on right now and there's TONS of new EDC/Bushcraft/Firearm related goodies being released!

    ...that would have already been released had it not been held back for the SHOT show. I'm convinced that thing has outlived its usefulness with the advent of Google and is now just an extra expense defrayed into the gear we love. Sorry to hijack. Grumble ended.
    Nice assortment :D

    I still don't like that style of bag. They don't really look the way I want others to see me, and I don't see huge advantages. But that its-style pocket is cool. And while I don't think bottles are the right use for the bottle pockets, I do like where they are and how they seem to be shaped.

    There's a good chance I'll give one a try.
    He really did.

    Industry shows are getting dumb. That being said, it's a place for people in the industry to network in person...which is still a part of commerce. My LGS has people attending mostly to maintain relationships with reps, afaict. Of course, they also got a g17 MOS a couple weeks ago because they saw it in the dealer catalog and ordered it. Assuming it was what they thought it was.

    That side of it is cool. It just sucks for consumers.

    Back when I was following DJ gear, I'd watch NAMM coverage like a hawk...then bug retailers until they actually got things I wanted....until I gave up a few weeks before they did...because I didn't care anymore. The joke was NAMM (in January) stood for "not available until maybe may".

    I'm firmly in favor of trade shows for people in the industry maintaining relationships. But they suck for consumers.
