    I'm sure once HELM and Jon work out the details, Jon will send out some sort of alert.

    Man, no matter how I crunch the numbers this is turning out to be a pricey backpack. I will post the price by the of the day today and it will be priced differently for the camo fabric 'cos the bloody Kryptek is expensive. Hang tight. In the meantime a quick shot of the Typhon.

    I don't mind paying for quality and functionality. Just can't wait to place an order. I'm down for one for sure might get two.

    Don't mean to bug you on it more but if you have more detail on the nylon being used for the the solid colors please. Thanks.

    Alright gang, here are the numbers you've been waiting patiently for. These prices are STRICTLY for forum members. Retail for these will start at $200. Prices are based on the 3 type of fabrics we will use; 420D Nylon Diamond Ripstop, 500D Authentic Licensed Camo and of course the solid Nylon colors.

    Diamond Ripstop, either solid or 2-tone, $145
    Nylon, Solid - $155 (black, gray, coyote, med navy, OD)
    Nylon, Camo - $185 (Multicam, Kryptek - Mandrake, Highlander & Typhon)

    We also have enough ATACS FG to make a few backpacks so first come first serve. And for any of you nostalgic for the older camo, contact me directly if you're interested in old school Tri-Colored desert or Woodland. Both are coming back into fashion because of the new jungle warfare program and the drama we see in the Mid East. I am checking to see if we have any carib blue, red and even pink left over from a previous contract.

    Materials
    There has been some question about this so let me lay it out for you. Camo nylon cannot come from anywere else but the licensed sources and they are all here in the US. Other nylon we use are all from mills in Korea. Let me be frank and say that some of these best nylons I have ever worked with are all from Korea where there are a few monster Invista/Cordura mills.
    • All our webbings are #17377 nylon.
    • Our zippers are strictly YKK.
    • The zipper pulls and hardware are either Duraflex or WooJin.
    • Foam we use are a mix of close and open cell.
    • Any snaps found are all milspec YKK too.
    • All nylon thread.
    For those who have never seen what our quality is like, you can either allow me to smoke you ;)or please ask fellow forum members who currently own any of our products. I'm very sure they wouldn't mind sharing their thoughts.

    Foreign fellow members - will have more info for you shortly! Didn't forget about you!

    What else? I hear my wife calling my name 'cos I have to mow the lawn :(

    Helm, have you gone out to mow the lawn yet?

    Real quick, I forget what happened the last time, do we need to wait till Jon puts these up in the store?

    I'm hiding from my wife. There's so many bodies around here installing a new roof and door at the same time that my wife is having a hard time chasing me ;)

    Good point brother. Unfortunately Jon has been extremely busy and comms are kinda difficult. I am going to put up a list of those of you who wanna reserve a backpack in your choice of color on a new thread 'cos this one is getting reeeeeally long!

    I will get the packs reserved first and when Jon's ready he can put them up on the store. This way we don't waste anymore time and get cracking on things.

    SO RESERVE YOURS HERE!!!

    HELM forgive me (everyone else too!);) I have been lurking around this thread, and I am definitely in for one, just not sure which color. Is there someplace we can see all the colors together, so we can compare? Thanks in advance.

    Ref international shipping

    I'm not sure how Jon would want to do this but I don't have any issues shipping these anywhere in the world to support all of our foreign forum members. Best way to ship is via USPS Priority Mail. The pack averages 4 pounds and it will be shipped in a thick white plastic sleeve that use for our weapons cases. So shipment will be about 5 pounds. Here are some sample rates:

    Canada - $35 (wow this is expensive! what's up with that?)
    Germany - $50
    Japan / Singapore / Malaysia - $55
    UK - $60
    Australia / NZ - $75
    Brazil - $50
    UAE - $55

    Please feel free should you guys have any questions. Thanks.

    Is there a pick of what the 2 tone blk/grey bag will look like? I kind of want the Typhon, but I'm afraid it is a little loud for me. But... it does look really sexy. Was thinking originally I would go with boring blue or something since I already have a black and grey back pack... the choices are too much!

    SMAJ beat me to the question. if its not too much to ask I wouldn't mind seeing the colors myself.

    Do me a favor 'cos I can't provide a link to a site other than ours. Please Google 'Sneaky Bags' and have a look at their products. The solid colors will be the same. Check out their CRBS and/or Spyders.

    Hope this helps.
