    It's all good, I think we can wait.
    I'd rather wait longer for something of quality.
    Thanks for working with us on this!

    I got to further test the Evade for a week out with the kids in Orlando. Carried it everyday for 6 straight days in both good and bad weather. No strains, no issues and no leaks!

    More torture pictures haha. Really tempting me to order three when they come out. That typhoon looks really nice. How did it hold up in the rain?

    When it gets wet you need to remember to turn the zippers away from the top. This way u minimize any possibility of water seeping through. Remember, there is no such thing as waterproof as long as you have stitches. Constant soaking of any bags with stitches will eventually see some seepage.

    I was walking in the rain shower for a good 45 minutes. It wasn't always heavy; most of the time was a steady fall.

    If you look carefully at the last photo of me holding the Evade up, you can see that the zippers were all brought to the side.

    (Just posted this on the EVADE Buy thread)

    Alright guys, here's a quick update.

    The EVADEs in Diamond Ripstop (2-Tone or Solid) and Med Navy are still in production and these might be ready first week of August. Everything else is DONE!!

    I am currently at the production studio and we have all the completed EVADEs packed and ready to ship stateside. I am going to reach out to Jon again to see if we can get these up on the forum store so that you guys can start purchasing them. I do have a back-up just in case. Will revert on this shortly.

    Hope this news cheers one of you up for the weekend ;)

    Tixx, ninja.medic - guys, for those who pre-ordered, you have nothing to be concern about. I have yours reserved. What I have done is to produce a tad more than the pre-order numbers. In essence, we have some extras.

    I'm ordering now! Is there a promo code? If not that's totally cool. I just don't want to miss out if there is one.

    Sometimes, that Evelyn Woods technique reduces comprehension.
