    Just got mine in today. You weren't exaggerating gatormedic... The thing is awesome! I'm backpacking tonight and giving it its first official field test. So far I'm very impressed. I love the coating, though I am a little worried about it getting marred. Thanks for giving me the nudge!

    If you bought the standard mouth bottle, you really need to try one of their insulated sports cap. You don't have to remove the cap to drink.

    I have the wide mouth versions. The new sports cap wasn't out yet when I bought mine (a couple week difference), although I heard it was coming. Considered waiting for it to come out and getting the new standard mouth 24 oz with it, but ultimately decided to just get two wide mouth 32 oz versions.

    Oh... And I'm sorry for hijacking the thread. I'll post a pic of each of my 5.11 bags tomorrow for atonement.

    The 511 covrt 18 backpack, I use it as an edc bag considering I spend a lot of time outdoors and work as a lifeguard so medical supplies are a must. It has held up to every bit of my expectations and more.

    Here's a crappy picture taken with my phone of my new R12. I just got it two days ago and I immediately filled it with my EDC + some stuff and took it for a weekend trip.

    I love it so far the shell opening of the main pocket and the general organisation of this bag are incredible, I can easily find anything inside.

    Another thing that surprized me was the water ressistance of this material, it's been raining ever since I got here and it held up just fine. Given the fact I EDC an umbrella, it's going to be just fine. The top fleeced pocket was kind of wet, but no big deal.

    One gripe I have with it is the harness. I think the top „opening“ is a bit too narrow. I think I'll be fine, I just need to brake into it a bit.

    I'll get some patches for it, but right now, it only sports a coat of arms of Romania pin.

    I'll post some more pictures of it during the trip

    InvertedBob The material does break in well with use. When I bought my black Rush 12 about a year after having my Multicam R12, initially I was wondering why it felt different. Then it dawned on me that my Multicam was nicely broken in and the black one was brand spanking new. Now after some use my black one is all broken in too :)

    Heading home from the first trip with my Rush 12. This thing is already part of my "zen", I love it :D . Also, I have some patches on their way to make it a bit more interesting ;) .

    You guys can be very convincing some times, you know that :rolleyes_revamped: ?
