    That looks like the exact unit used in the Maxpedition Sitka. The whistle doesn't work worth a :censored: IMO.

    Outstanding bag you made there!!! O0

    As the design was made to your own specs for yourself I can hardly add any constructive criticism. ;)

    Your idea of using lighter weight materials for the interior sounds like a great one.

    If your looking for constructive critisim, i dont think you would get much rain there but if you could make the doc flap waterproof some how it may save some damage to your docs at some point. just a thought :shrug:

    That is way cool for EDC. Please let us know if it is quality and loud. Thanx for listing the source. As far as I am concerned, it is great for men, women and children.

    If the Maxpedition Gleneagle I had was built like this one, I wouldn't have returned it. Great bag.

    Good idea gatorbud, my next design will probably have an "oversized" flap, similar to what TAD´s dispatch bag has (although it´s a bit ugly):

    How so?, it looks like a great design!

    For some reason I haven't read this thread before and I have to say I don't like tacticool all that much.
    BUT I WANT ONE OF THESE BAGS!

    You are welcome jma! Your design does a lot of things without being too fussy, so I guess the right word is Elegant.

    Very nice +10! At this size it might be overkill, but for a larger version, you might want to consider adding a chest strap for stabilization when wearing bike messenger style.

    I like that definition :)

    Chest strap? I´ve never seen messenger with a chest strap before.. Interesting idea!

    My next messenger will have a removable waist strap, though..

    Check out the first image for a chest strap or stabilizer strap.

    That's some fine work, and the features are well thought out. If you ever make more, I'd be interested in speaking with you.
