aw now thats just being cruel! :shocked: :laugh: ;D ;D
Saw a review on Youtube. I think it would have to come down in price some before I'd consider one. I'm not sure I could justify paying 3x or so what you could get something like the http://countycomm.com/minebag.htm. I think it's a better bag, but really both are simple bags. It's not quite like comparing the Maxpedtion Operator and the Countycomm BOB, which I did and in the end opted for the Operator. In that case you have so many more external pouches and a larger bag that I think maybe the difference in quality is more glaring. Maybe I'm wrong. I'll be interested to see how others use it before I decide for sure. I'm quite sure it would be too small for my desired use anyway.

I didn't have any plan for using the belt, so I chopped it up and used the material to make a carrying handle.
Since I hadn't planned on using the belt I never thought about the belt tunnel being placed too low on the bag.
If one were to follow the advice posted in another thread here, wearing the bag at the hip would put the belt way low on the hips, rather than close to the waist where I would think you would want it.
To get the belt near your waist you would have to wear the bag very high, almost under the arm for shorter people.
I HAVE seen women carry purses this way, but I don't think many men want to adopt this style.
:roof: thanks for pics!
I have a county comm bag and it is a good bag but it's shape is the turn off for me.It always seems to sag if you don't have it packed to the gills. The quality of the active shooter is much better.it also has a much better lay out for organization with velcro pouches.If the quality of the lapg ammo bag was better it would offer some of the same capability but still not have as much mounting space as the active shooter.
I use a PALS Front Version as an EDC Bag since a few days and I'm very happy about!
I'm a long time lurker, but this is my first post. I just want to comment on this bag.
I have had a bag very similar to this one for over a year now. I have carried it pretty much every single day. It is the longest I have ever carried a purse. (My DH always laughs when I call it my purse). I saw Eggroll's take out bag, and wanted a bag similar to that with a few mods. My DH emailed Eggroll and what he came up with was a bag that looks a lot like the Active Shooter Bag, without the front PALS. I LOVE this bag. I carry a Tactical Tailor E&E pouch in the main compartment with a TAD Gear Admin panel stuck on the inside. I keep a wallet, keys, sunscreen, doggy bags, and serval small necessities. The front pocket holds my muti-tool, pocket knife, pens, a notebook and lots of smaller things like chap stick, hand sanatizer etc. I have plenty of room for my EDC stuff (I carry a lot) and any extra things that may come up.
The bag itself has held up well, and still looks brand new. I have even ran it through the washer several times, as I have kids and critters and things get dirty!
I haven't personally seen the maxpedition version, but by looking at the pictures online, it does seem to be very close to the same bag. For me, it is the perfect EDC. It is the perfect size and shape for my needs and its pretty much indestructible. I think this bag would make an excellent EDC for anyone.
good to hear that your bag is holding up well... the pattern for your bag was sent off to Maxpedition as the PALS front ASB
Congrats Eggroll, great design, simple but effective!
Here two pics of my Active Shooter with PALS Front used as an EDC Bag.
Its combined with:
Volta Battery Case (Must be changed in foliage green)
Triad Admin Pouch
and on the side a Mini Rollypoly (Must be changed in foliage green)

You guys are poison.

I think they might have a few left. ;D

oooh very nice! i still have not picked up mine, job tanked and i'm living on $15 a week right now...lol
soon, very soon i will have one.
anyone try a netbook in one of these like a asus eee? Wondering what the true interior dimension would be.
Asus EEE fits up to 90x in small compartment, Lenovo S10 barely fits in small compartment (but just barely, and you need to break in the bag a little, it's a TIGHT fit).
Would be no problem to fit most of modern netbooks into big compartment at all.
Then again, I managed to cram Lenovo S10 into CCW compartment in Jumbo, so it might be my mad cramming skillz.
Can make pikchurz of it if you want, love my ASB, think it's very photogenic
Sounds good mate! Thanks for the info and pics are always appreciated. I think the Active Shooter would make a great netbook bag to carry to the cafe and sip lattes. How yuppie of me!
My eee 904ha(same size as the 10 inchers) won't fit, but I agree that the 7 and smaller 8.9's should(they are about 1.5 inches shorter).
I finally got a PALS front ASB!
My 8.9" Asus Eee 900HA easily fits into the large compartment with room to spare. I haven't tried to fit it into the smaller compartment tho. I can try to get pictures up when i get the chance!
Should fit in a small one too.
