    Glad it's working out for you! I agree that the action of the zippers is the weakest point since it lacks the smoothness of the YKKs.

    Nonetheless, this is a nice pack to test whether the style and format of a 5.11 Rush 12 will suit your needs in the long term without breaking the bank. The Rush 12 is undoubtedly a better pack but, for the price, these are pretty dang good.

    I've been working a ton too and it's really taken a toll on my time here. SurvivePenna and everyone else - consider your posts liked, even if I haven't had much time to let you know. :)

    One piece of EDC that I almost always have on me or right next to me....is my new smart-phone - The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. (64 Gb version)

    "Wow...you can make phone calls with this ???" :eek:

    Long, long gone are the days where this could be called a phone. I'm serious. Yes, you can use it as a phone but why waste your battery on using it as a phone ?? Phones are those heavy, clonky devices old folks refer to as a "landline". :D Go find one of those antiques if you can...many people these days have cut their "landline phones" out of their lives and use their "cell phone" as their "home phone".

    No..this my friends is a mobile powerhouse of a computer. Two quad-core processors powers this monster (2.1 GHz Quad + 1.5 GHz Quad). Yes, two...
    Well, SP..that's all well...but does it have a heart-rate monitor ?? Yes.
    Well, SP does it have a functioning finger-printer scanner so only I can activate and use the phone ?? Yes.
    You get the idea. I'm really not even trying to sell you this phone nor am I bragging about it. I couldn't care less and it is not the point I'm trying to make.

    My point is that this is one advanced piece of EDC. Any handheld device out of any Star-Trek movie I have ever seen looks like a 10.000 year old relic next to the S6 Edge. Heck...I don't even have to press any buttons or do anything to snap the most beautiful pictures in the world !!! All I do is simply say a word like "Shoot" or "Cheese" and the S6 Edge does everything else. These following pictures are ALL snapped on purpose by only pointing the camera in the general direction of the item I wanted to take a picture of and by simply saying the word "shoot" or "cheese". As always, I'll let you be the judge. Just be aware that I was just goofing around with the phone one of the first days that I had it...and these pictures were just test-pictures to see if everything was working. In other words - I was just playing with my new toy.

    Okay, here's a few more pictures taken while the phone was still new :

    One day at work....this beautiful "girl" came to visit us all by herself...we used a laptop bag strap as a leash until we could locate the owner. She is a Dutch Shepherd. A rare breed in the US. She got spoiled with love and dog treats until the owner came and picked her up.

    I just loved the colors in this photo...as I was looking through a few pictures I had snapped for work.

    Nice pics! How does it do in low light? Seems to be the downfall of my iPhone 6 camera.

    The nerve of this virus...it says : "Your PC will restart several times. Sit back and relax."

    I wrote this post from a PC at work where we are "safe" from these kind of viruses....:rolleyes_revamped:

    Geez mate that looks simply horrible. ;)
    I do hope it sorts it self out. :p
    We have the same threatening icons in our notification area. I'm careful to keep it away from my win7 machines. But I'm going to let it run rampant over anything win8.

    Nice twilight pics SP.

    Nice to see you pop in SP. We have a Win 8 machine at home, this has to be an improvement.

    its got to be! MS obviously doesn't learn
    Vista was horrible. Then win8 was horrible
    We have all given our win8 machines the bash at home far too many times to count. (Metaphorically speaking of course! - we don't promote a culture of violence to computers, in our house:p )

    "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

    Al Gore - March 9th, 1999

    This quote is obviously not new and it has been a standing joke ever since. My reason for posting is that we are at a time when the 2016 Presidential Elections are heating up greatly and is taking up so much time on TV and other media. We could and should talk about things that REALLY matter instead.

    To me this quote is clear proof of how agressively insane and dilusional most if not all politicians are. To be 500 % fair...I actually took this quote from a website trying to debunk the fact that Al Gore had claimed that he created/invented the Internet.

    The scary part is that these people are running MY country and YOURS. That is a fact. It has been said that you get the polititians that you deserve and that is true...but does it have to be this bad ?

    Please be very mindful that Al Gore is NOT the worst polititian ever. Not even close.

    I'm not advocating any particular party line or even a right or left wing course. What I am advocating is that you as a voter help yourself and your country by electing people that have a little bit more integrity than your common street-thug. By electing people that can actually spell common words like "potato". (On June 15, 1992, Vice Precident Dan Quayle altered 12-year-old student William Figueroa's correct spelling of "potato" to "potatoe")
    Laugh all you want...but this guy was one heartbeat away from becoming the leader of the most powerful nation on this planet. Yeah !
    Scary ???

    As always - make up your own mind but give it some thought.

    SP
