    Slick X-Ray

    [​IMG]

    On a side note, Kifaru posted these up on FB while at SHOT. New Kifaru Antero EDC pack and I think they hit a home run.
    1000d, removable framesheet, panel loader with side compression, 2000ci, big bottle pockets, organization pockets, low profile torso pads, xray straps and Omni belt compatible.

    Carried this one almost daily for over three years now, including in a few less-than-hospitable places. It doesn't look any different than the day I unboxed it really. £300 well spent -- buy once, cry once.[​IMG]

    Sure do, took it to work with me today, in fact. Carried my laptop, thermos sip, and a Duluth shirt-jac for the chilly evening walk home.

    Malraux72,

    Yes there are holes that you can see from the inside out. Less noticeable on the outside and the MC really obscures them. I'm sure in time they will get smaller but they will never fully close up.
    I really like how it turned out with all the fat trimmed off. Great EDC to light hiking pack!

    Thanks for getting back to me. Any issues with water leaks ? I did this on a ILBE large pack. Shaved ton of weight offf. Looked fine. But the holes were there . My bud has been using it for the past two years and they are still there. Not an issue with a large pack that you line with a trash bag anyhow... but for EDC....?

    I'll let you know after the next big snow or in spring when the rains come. I imagine there will be some seepage but at some point I'm going to get some clear silicone, cut it with mineral spirits and put a thin film over each spot where the bartacks were (inside/tab it on with fingertip). That will take care of that problem.

    reviving this thread.

    I have an E&E and wanted a little extra space sometimes, not all the time.

    I bought a Kifaru 500 light long pocket.

    You can get the idea from the photos, that it can be folded in half and mounted to the front or even just strapped as is on the front if you need to really fill it up.

    I had been wanting a Zippy for a long time, but the cost was a bit prohibitive for me. I wanted the original for it's molle, so I could attach extra pouches. Last Christmas I had a little extra money, and discovered they'd discontinued the model. When I discovered they had a few left in the Rhino Den, other things had already come up and I'd spent most of the money I'd saved. So this year I see they're marked way down and still a few left in the Rhino Den, even a few in Wolf Grey! Thanks to my tax return, I now have a Zippy on the way, along with the Omni Frame Sheet. I'm so psyched about getting this pack. I have 2 6X10 vertical 5.11 pouches for the sides. I've had these pouches for a long time but they haven't fit on anything because they require 4 channels of Molle and almost every bag I have only has 3. The 5.11 pouches are black, which should contrast nicely with wolf gray. I also have a small assortment of pouches in black for the face of the bag. Now I'm just hoping since these bags were already in stock that I don't have a long wait for it to arrive.
