    Guys sorry for the Houdini act. I've had to cover 5 countries and 8 cities in the last 3 weeks and I'm flying on fumes right now. I'm headed back to the studio right now and I will get a status check on the production. Will revert with an estimated delivery date as soon as I can. Let's not be concern about any $ right now. We can sort it out when the Evades are ready to ship out. Will be posting this update on the other thread too. Thanks for your patience!

    How does the size compare to the Blue Forum Special SERT Backpack?

    I'd like to say it's roughly about the same.

    Out of curiosity, what was the thought process with not having the shoulder straps fixed to the back at the top? Not being critical at all, just wondering.


    Thanks,

    Oh yeah, and is there any way that you could take some pictures (or video) with a black nylon final production version when you get time? I need something to tide me over until they are available! Thanks either way, sir. VERY happy they this came to fruition....


    Thanks,

    Will do. In the meantime please feel free with any questions you have. Now on to your question of the shoulder straps.

    Two things come to mind. One, it allows the strap to be adjustable on both ends. Sometimes you need the padded portion lower and letting some of the webbing off the top allows for this especially for bigger guys. When you have the padded shoulder strap attached directly to the bag body, some of us find a 'lack' of padded support below especially around your mid rib.

    Two, it provides for a greater 'angle' of spread for the shoulder straps. This helps accommodate different body types. I'm 6' 1" and fits me just as well as my studio director who is 5' 2".

    Hope this makes sense! Thanks.

    Posting for alerts. Looking good so far. Thankfully I got assigned to nights for a few weeks (out of schedule! :frantic:) and won't have to budget to cover payment after all.

    Pack looks absolutely fantastic. My current bag is falling apart, but I'll hold off and pick up one of these if they're still available for pre-order.

    Hey guys. I was originally hoping to have these packs ready to ship mid July but I am going to have to push it back. I have quite a bit of LE contract work that we still have to finish so please bear with me while I get this sorted out. I've received personal emails from a number of you because you'd like to take your Evade for an upcoming trips. Best guesstimate is end July right now. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope everyone is cool with this.
