Looking for a 2000ci, anything between 1800-2200 would be acceptable, could go slightly larger. Replacing a blade 30. Things I would like: Clamshell opening No Molle or very minimal Heavy duty material External lashing points (side compression for say sticking an umbrella would be idea) Large bottle holders Things I don't care for: Lots of compartments Admin pockets (not a deal break, but I don't care for them) Not overly tactical looking (things like camo are auto deal breakers) Packs I have considered but not exactly what I want: Goruck GR2 (the molle is unappealing and no compression straps/bottle holders is off putting, the clamshell and pack set up is very appealing). ILE bags (default and flaptop look cool, can get in navy which is awesome, but aren't clamshell and no water bottle pockets either) Tom Bihn Brain Bag (everything about it except the rather less than wide opening, I dont like the admin pockets, but not that bad) Ember backpacks (more cool than anything else, and well rugged, but missing too manythings, kinda small) Mission Workshop (nothing works for me) First Spear Comm pack (really like it but doesn't clamshell and doesn't have a convenient way to lash an umbrella) HPG - Nothing fits my needs SERT Evade (misses on too many things) Eberlestock Terminator (just seeing if you made it this far) Also looked at Eagle Creek (like their packing cubes and stuff) and Arc'Teryx, Vanquest IBEX and didn't see anything appealed. Any thoughts appreciated it. Leaning towards the ILE and Tom Bihn as of now.
