    I don't have four of them but this is the general idea, [​IMG]
    This will also give you a dedicated spot for a laptop or water bladder.
    I also use the g-hook to hold the top of the tail to the centered webbing when I carry my laptop. Like so...[​IMG]

    I think he means Grimloc carabiners which you can get from TAD which is what I use.

    Those would work too but I was meaning the ITW g-hooks that are sold on milspec monkey's website, they are full metal so they won't break and lay really flat.

    Oh, I have 2 grimlocs. They sell them on Amazon and MSM as well. Not sure if it's cheaper there or from TAD. I know ITW is the brand I'd get. Made in the USA .

    Either way you go, the tail can be a useful Molle panel inside the pack.

    I see what you mean. I experimented using the grimlocs and they're too big. The g-hooks are flatter and would work a bit better. My goal is to keep the inside as open as possible cause it's where I keep my 2 food coolers and hydroflask. So I just put the tail back on the outside for now. It totally gets in the way, but looks good so screw it .

    Yeah I agree it can definitely get in the way. I use it to just flatten the pack a little bit. Either way enjoy the pack! I just switched to the EDC and really like it but don't know if I should still sell my litespeed or not. Hmmmm

    I bought a Kifaru Xing with side pouches. However the Kifaru attachment system on the pouches sucked. So I bought some Dumanis pouches with G hooks instead and far more secure.

    Forgive me for quality of picture, new camera getting use too as well as pin interest. All my new photos will be TAD on this thread to follow shortly. :)

    I see. that looks good and secure. that's a nice looking Kifaru pack! I just received a WG Kifaru 500d organizer today. Their stuff is really well made. I like those Dunamis Gear pockets also. I've got a set on my Light Speed.

    I originally wanted the EDC, but I found my Light Speed on eBay for a BIN of $150 from a new seller and pounced. I'm glad I did. And I'm glad I put the tail back on cause I needed it for a package I couldn't fit in the bag today.

    I find the tail very useful myself, particularly this time of year for a place to stuff my hoodie or rain jacket.
    Now I need to score some of those kifaru pouches. Those do look like they fit nicely!

    I'm gonna keep it on. I adjusted it and it's a whole lot easier to move it and get to my stuff. The kifaru pouches are excellent, not to mention about half the price of the TAD ones and are just as well made.

    I like the black multicam. However, no matter how many times I've tried the LS (at least 2 times) I find it too small and requiring way too many add on pouches, etc. The back is well made and if it fits your use, should last forever. Definitely like the color. Try to find accessories used to save some money as they are priced higher due to being multicam.

    I like the black multicam as well, as soon as TAD makes the EDC in that color/material I will jump all over it

    Just picked up an EDC for work and am using my LS for daily carrying. I really like having the extra room! This thing's pretty awesome .
