    Thank you! Do you know, if the cap is compatible with the standard Nalgene widemouth?

    No its not. I tried to put a chute camelbak cap on my wide mouthed nalgene and it leaked. Bought another one from nalgene site called multidrink, much better!

    That is a fairly new TAD Fast Pack Litespeed. There is a MSM patch/admin panel on the front.

    How are you liking this style of bag? I've been looking into something to carry a first aid kit and other small essentials when I'm walking around the mall or downtown and don't want a full size backpack.

    That's awesome. I think a setup like this would be perfect. I'd probably trim it down to just the trauma kit and maybe a boo boo kit. Is this bag still being made? I looked on there website and they seem to be out of stock and I can't find them anywhere else. Also, is there one available without the loop panel?

    Hey not trying to be a smart-:censored:, I'm curious about this. I've seen many many pics of backpacks in this thread that have the U.S. flag improperly displayed. The field of stars should always be on the upper left when facing the flag (or the position of highest honor). But I see a lot of packs with the union on the right. Is there a significance I don't know about and never learned or are the guys doing this just not aware of how to properly display Old Glory?

    It's how the U.S. Military wears it; it's worn on the right shoulder, so when "reversed," it looks like the flag is waving in the wind as we're moving forward. If it were the "correct" orientation, it would look like it was waving in the wind as we were going backwards, aka retreating.

    A friend and fellow medic had a bunch made. I think he had the extras on ebay. Let me ask him and see if he has any left lol

    Right I get that and understand why it's in the upper right when worn on the right shoulder because that is the position of highest honor when walking forward.

    I'm saying I see backpacks displaying the flag on the back so that when you are facing the pack directly, the field of blue is on the upper right. I would think that's improperly displayed though, no??

    I'm just trying to learn ...if it's ok to do it that way.

    Yes that is improperly displayed but I believe it is generally service members who wear them to identify themselves as military (active or retired). I personally don't have an issue with it but I would never wear it myself as I didn't serve, those who have worn it in that orientation into battle have earned the right in my eyes.

    Yes, sorry, exactly that. It's become a symbol of either service or support for service members, when used in that capacity. I use the reversed on my bags, but it's also on my shoulder as I'm typing this. If I didn't serve I wouldn't use the reversed on my bags, but to each their own.

    As one that has served in a very unpopular war (I enlisted, wasn't drafted, we won 99.9% of the battles and could have won the war had the politicians let us do our job) I thank you for your service and sacrifice. Some sacrifices can't be seen because many don't see the families and what they go through to support their loved ones in the background. Some things seem to elude many people in the the U.S. today. Freedom isn't free! Take a few trips to China and SE Asia if you want to see a lack of freedoms that we take for granted.

    Ok thanks for answering my question guys. Honestly I figured it was something like that and I agree that those who've fought/served I have no issues with them displaying the flag how they like. I was just curious.

    And thanks to all who serve or have served!

    I like the thicker cord personality.
