    Yeah I don't see how TAD can justify their ridiculous postage costs. You're not even on a different continent.

    No worries. Another continent is roughly half the price of the pack.

    And Goruck charges $70 USD to Canada, but you get it the following day by FEDEX, it's inclusive of duties though, would TAD be worst or better?

    I reckon it's aimed at people who literally burn money.

    Does anyone know how to stop fraying on the carry handle on a Litespeed? (Current version)

    You could, carefully, pass an open flame along the fraying, which should reduce and seal it. Alternatively, you could make a Paracord wrap for it, similar to those found on the Direct Action line of packs.

    Got my Scout today! Need to mess with the straps, and thankfully no symmetry issues.

    @Skoomin do you own a Litespeed for size comparison?

    @freeriderth Unfortunately i sold my Litespeed a while back, but here is the EDC (32L) and two GR1's (26L/21L) for comparison. Scout is 15L and Litespeed is 22L.

    I know you didn't ask but just throwing out that my 13" macbook fits in the scout, but the way the bottom tapers, its a bit wonky. The narrow shoulder straps and the admin panel are probably my favorite thing on this pack. Only thing I hate is the velcro on the bottom for the inverted pouch.

    Hope the pictures help!

    Yeah bad weather today so I think I'll go to Spain, and this is the only luggage.

    (And I thought I'd take some Ace Combat patches for a spin.)
