    Hey @soulknight have a question for you... Your Covert 18's ccw pocket looks like it has pals webbing in it. I can't really tell. Did you add something in there to the velcro patch, or a pals panel? Interesting...
    Thanks

    I have the same experience with my R24. I usually walk 1.5 miles to work every morning and I'm a hot mess when I get there, especially my back. I wear the bag tight with the chest strap to minimize movement. It really doesn't breathe well, but if my candy-urban-:censored: is going to pretend to be all tactical, I figure I need to embrace the suck ;-)

    I have 5.11's small Covert Insert in the CCW pocket. I had to trim 3/4"-1" from the top of the plastic sheet inside the insert to get it to fit. It's easy. The insert is just Velcroed together. I like it because it opens many more options for the CCW pocket. [​IMG]

    No, I don't think its a 72. No lower compression strap, the side pockets are too small, no mesh on the sides of the "stuff pocket". There may be other features I have missed, but I bet it is a 24.

    You can’t see the mesh because the admin pocket is pulled tight to the main bag by the compression straps. The waist belt has places to tuck them in completely (you can see the bulge where they are tucked in on the lower left part of the bag). I own both a 72 and a 24. Based on how long the bag is compared to his torso, I still say 72, just not a very full one (it actually looks empty).

    I still think it is a 24. Look at the zipper flap on the side pocket, note how it goes straight up and under the compression strap. The 72 curves away and should be below the compression strap. The photo above shows 5 rows of molle below the compression strap (correct for the 24) and the 72 has 6 rows. Still missing the lower compression strap. Lower left part of bag also has a "slide" that does not appear on the 72.

    I examined both my bags and I now agree with you. It’s a 24.
