Gang, my apologies ahead of time for the delay in getting this done. I think I’ve tinkered and tailored enough with this new Gen pack and it’s time we start getting this into production so that we all have a new backpack to look forward to before Xmas! The new Evade 2.0 will be a limited release, possibly between 100 to 150 packs at most. Reason being is because I have other products with the other brands to get out for the season and production space is getting pretty limited as we speak. Rather than further postponing any of these, best that I try to make a decent number available for the season. Since the development of the Evade started here thanks to all of you, I’ve decided to get the wait list started here first before I announce it on our FB and another group. Below is a list of all the revisions that will be incorporated into the Evade 2.0; some of you have been following the development so if I missed something, please remind me. One last thing, for this wait list I don’t want any money exchanging hands so please do not offer any deposits etc. You may request one but rest assured you are not obligated to it. I think we’ll have enough interest to fill the list. When products are ready to ship I will point to you the link and let you sort it out from there. Finally, I have not finalized the price for the new Evade but suffice to say it will probably be priced about the same as the current Gen. If you decide to reserve one, just reply with the part number, A19-EV2-BK which is for the Black 500D option. Black 420D diamond ripstop will A19-EV2-DRB; the code for the rest of the colors is shown below. Just add the options you want after that, see below. And please feel free with the questions. Thanks!
