    TriZip nirvana!!
    Many thanks(and curses) to Kevin(Trailmix) of Advanced Outfitters who once again has "helped" me acquire another bag. Kevin started me on the "quest for the Grail bag" with my first tactical bag the Camelbak Talon(an awesome bag, but I prefer clamshell).
    Enough of my chatter, pictures!

    These are my "mall ninja black" bags:

    My coyote/tan bags(as of Thursday the 15th):

    See the problem?? No coyote Trizip.
    What to do, what to do?
    I was trading PM's :discussion: with Kevin, talking about bags and whatnot, and next thing I know I'm the proud owner of a coyote TriZip!
    I'm not sure how Kevin does it, but when I talk to him I spend money. It might be subliminal tricks in what he types. No telling.

    Now I am color matched and my slight obsessive compulsive habit is assuaged. When I wear my brown shoes/belt/jacket, I have coyote bags to match. When I wear black shoes/belt/jacket I have black bags(I even swap the lanyard on my HDS Rotary between black and tan).

    It looks like a mirror. :) Yin and Yang of TriZips, E&E's and Mission Go Bags

    One strap stowed because that is how I roll!

    I do have the Kifaru Bandolier Strap Kit on both my E&E's. It has proven useful, and it is only $20, so I'd recommend it.

    More TriZip pictures.
    It is a top loader(thanks to my pillow for helping to fill the TriZip).

    It is a clamshell front opening bag. You can see the radio pocket and straps. That pocket will hold a laptop or bag of beef jerky.

    Two side zipper mesh pockets.

    Outside pockets: one is an admin pocket, the other is just an empty space.

    Anything placed here will protrude into the main area. It will hold a water bottle, but that reduces your internal volume.

    Adjustable yoke Futura Harness designed by Mystery Ranch.

    Separate bladder pocket.

    Now for the crazy trifecta of modular adaptability my Polish mind came up with:
    Lets see, attach this to that-
    [​IMG]
    Snap that strap around carry handle-
    [​IMG]
    Dock and lock the E&E-
    [​IMG]
    Balance Mission Go Bag on top of E&E-
    [​IMG]
    No, the MGB and E&E are attached to the TriZip-
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I don't know if i would ever carry it this way, but I could...
    It would be easier to wear the E&E as a chest pack, and the MGB as a waist pack, or slung over a shoulder. It would probably depend on what is in the bags.

    Any other pictures you would like, please ask. Any comments, critics, or jokes, please post them.

    Do I need a pack to match my outfit? Why any high class bag lady will tell you "yes".

    Now THAT is one heck of a setup! :notworthy:

    I like how you mentioned "as of Thursday..." in one of the picture captions. Nothing like leaving it open-ended in case another potential bag is floating around somewhere. ;D

    I have major bag envy now. Very nice set up. I wish I was that well equipped 15 years ago when I didn't have a car so I EDCed a bag every day.

    But I must add: the title of your thread reveals flawed reasoning!

    :crackup:

    but that's nice gear....

    Or you could just get another HDS so you don't have to swap them :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

    Hmmm...that could be arranged. Maybe in 2012 I'll try it.

    Yep.
    :)

    That is a good idea. What I need is two HDS's cerokoated in tan and black.


    Thanks everyone! I don't need both colors, but it's America. Now if manufactures don't make any new cool bags I should be okay.
