    Evade 2.0!?! That's gotta be a wives tale.... like Gummi Bears and a Goonies Sequel.

    Sorry guys I've been working overseas quite a bit recently. Ref the Evade 2.0, not for awhile. I have my hands full with work until end of year. And more work is piling some up as we speak. As most of you know the A19/Evade program is a passion of mine but my real work is LE/Mil production and procurement. Suffice to say that things are not slowing down in that sector so until I get some serious quite time to focus on a new version of the Evade, some optional accessories are I hope to make available to all shortly.

    Thanks for the update Helm. I'm looking forward to the future projects. Also, do you have any pricing availible for the waist belt?

    I will put out an update the waist belt and price sometime next week. And the new shoulder strap options too.

    I've been lugging my evade to work every day now. Summertime is here and volume is low.. it's a great way to sneak in a laptop for some gaming. :)

    In case anyone wants to know....received my two tone ripstop Evade for Christmas 2015 and have carried it EVERY DAY since.

    It's been with me on multiple trips to Europe and Mexico, the Bahamas, Disney World, outdoor festivals, beaches, woods, ice fishing, camping, and all manner of every day stuff. It's been soaked in salt water on boats (fishing, diving trips), tossed in the sand on beaches, sat out on the ice (ice fishing), stuffed under airline seats, in overhead bins, checked baggage, car trunks....I've way overstuffed it on many occasions plus attached stuff to the outside with shock cord and biners. You get the idea.

    Been carrying an EDC bag for nearly 30 years and my Evade beats them all, hands down! Not only has it held up but it even still looks good.

    Just got a "bath" ready for a quick spray of waterproofing and then back on duty.

    Any update on the shoulder straps - or timeframe for a v2.0 (with beaver tail and 4L larger main compartment)?

    The shoulder straps are in production right now, a tad behind. Ref v2.0, I'm gonna be conservative and say start of the new year, possibly a launch at SHOT Show. As I've mentioned above, I/we do have our hands full and I have a couple of other A19 products that need to be put out before I circle back on the Evade. I'm also working on a more basic, no frills backpack.

    Hi Helm, what changes are being made to the shoulder straps? I knew that there was a lengthened version made after the initial Evade release.

    Some of the guys online have been asking for an optional shoulder strap upgrade so I've complied. Will send a photo of it as soon as I can. Am yet at another airport, in yet another foreign country trying to get the long lines of security checks!

    Yeah, I keep a whole lot of stuff with me. Tool kit, FAK, toiletries and so on. That pic didn't even include my CCW or the occasional hammock that I throw in there. Love my bag!
