    Hi Foster, all Evades are shipped with the cords. You can leave it on and remove it, that's why you see some photos that don't show the cords. Thanks.

    +1 for a smaller pack. I have a feeling the Evade pack is a bit too large for me. A similar smaller one with the same design but without the laptop compartment would be nice but I would like it to keep the CCW compartment and the front organizer pocket.

    On another note, how heavy is the Evade pack without anything inside? Is the Diamond nylon much lighter compared to the cordura?

    Also, anyone whose height is around 5'4 - 5'5 with an Evade pack able to post a picture with the pack on your back? Would love to see how it looks on a guy with a similar height to mine. Thank you!

    Thanks much. This project is very successful, because it looks like the bag I wanted (solid gray nylon) is out of stock!

    I'll be ordering one as soon as they show up again. The design is beyond excellent!

    I'm planning on gifting myself one as a birthday present next month but it is a large purchase for this type of item so I'm hoping for a decade or more of daily use. This bag will see light daily use but will also double as an occasional hiking daypack and range bag. The range use and CC is destroying the interior of my current generic bag. My question is, will the diamond ripstop be good enough or should I go with a solid nylon?

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Answer is yes, no issues whatsoever with the ripstop.

    Just worked out a deal with a forum member for a solid gray current model. I'm sure it's bomb proof! There still might be a diamond ripstop in my future.

    Mr. Helm, I have a Black version with the shock cord loops on the outer-most organizer access panel, so I'm assuming it's one of the later ones made. It feels like 500D, do the new ones in Black come in 1000D?

    HELM I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of your source for the coyote zipper pulls. I want to change the zipper pulls on my Evade for some contrast and easy identification.

    Hey Helm,

    I finally ordered the 2-tone as soon as they were available on the site.

    Question, do you have any images of the All Grey Ripstops?

    Yep, nice guy. Wanted to chat more but it was 5am and felt a little uncomfortable talking about stash spots in my bag in a crowded airport

    Hi HELM,

    I've saw a set of longer shoulder straps mentioned in a review. Are these available yet?

    Thanks
