    Actually, the solid ripstop will be solid black color, right?
    And the two tone is black and blue?

    If so, I'll actually take one in solid ripstop

    ppfd - during my recent trip to Tokyo I think I had about 8 kilos worth of gear in mine including a MacBook Pro, an iPad with that bulky Otterbox case, what I called a compact 'field office' (weatherproof clipboard), every single cable and charger imaginable, snacks, meds, snacks plus all the personal stuff.

    Bottom line, you can pack quite a bit. Our studio director lost her luggage when they arrived in Osaka and she had two days worth of change in the pack including basic toiletries.

    So all in all you can haul quite a bit BUT if you don't have to carry that much, it's a great day pack at heart.

    I am familiar with First Spear's small comms pack. Although folks there are friends I have to say that their pack is not for anyone who is an organizational hound. It is very rudimentary on the inside. It is great if you plan to carry just gear in general. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong here.

    The Evade was designed for versatility, from a portable mobile office, weekend's haul, gym pack to operational use for tac teams running small arms like an SMG.

    Hope this helps.

    FenixArcher - the DR is offered as a 2-tone combo in black/gray OR you can also order it as a solid in either color.

    HELM, I know you mentioned in the other thread about possibly adding more padding tonight shoulder pads. Did that upgrade make it to the final version?

    Missed that the DR can be ordered in solid as well may need to rethink my selection but for now I'll keep the 2 tone makes it look even less tactical.

    That is great! You are definitely up their for me for one the best vendors I have dealt with.

    I've been watching the last evade video to get better ideas of how I will pack it. Is the grey more of charcoal or does it have more green in it? Not sure if it's just the camera and/or lighting. Thanks.

    Yes and no. Yes, I'll keep the original two tone selection. No, because I want the bag even more now haha. Thanks for the pic.

    Sorry to bug with more questions. Will the solid color cordura nylon evade have a light interior like the DR ones? Makes it a whole lot easier to find stuff. Thanks again.

    Hey no worries. With the darker colors we will have lighter colored linings inside. For colors like Coyote, Multicam for instance, the lining will be coyote since it's not dark.

    HELM I don't see my name in the list, probably because you are so good at answering questions, and also because I ask too many of them. ;)
    :cool: Count me in for a DR dual color black/grey !!!:cool:
    And a pack of MATROSKYA Pouches would be great if we can have one shipped inside the Evade. I wish we could mix and match, and understand we can't, but if anyone here in Europe is interested we could maybe pool a couple and split them up…
