    you guys are the lucky ones... i dont have anything at all. :(

    Contacted the local distribution listed on the site that i purchased (for outside the U.S) and the number is not valid, it seems.
    Tried emailing it yesterday, hoping that i could collect it myself instead of being delivered but no response. Santa is not coming to this part of the world, i suppose.

    *tough luck :)

    I really liked the old gray. The one that looks like what GoRuck calls “steel”. I’d buy that again in a heartbeat.

    Maybe I should have gone ballistic and wolf instead of ballistic and 500D black.

    All these shipping notifications are making me jealous. Then again, once I get home to receive the EV2...that means I have to go to work and vacation is over.

    Mine hasn't moved since getting into town on Friday?
    If not for the Holidays I could go out to UPS and get them to find it and deliver into my waiting arms but now......not so much.

    So it looks like vicarious thrill through the rest of you who got yours for now!

    Anyone with Ballistic who also had the EV1 how do the Zippers feel in comparison?

    I always have to use both hands to get into the front on the original and am hoping the extra thickness changes this a little?

    I see a UPS label slated for Jan 2. No official notice yet but I’m hopeful. Also - not sure I can wait until Jan 2. :)

    Hey it does make the zippers feel great!! I noticed it right away glad to report. I love this 1050D! No issues with the WJ pulls. Like Helm mention it has that "Tumi" vibe. Very nice smooth with a subtle sheen and finish. Wait, what? Are we still talking about fabric? Lol
    ;)

    Omg I just received my 1050d in the mail, FedEx deliverrd the best Xmas present ever! Wow the fabric is just insane, thicker/burlier than any 500d or 1000d cordura (USA OR overseas made) from Mystery Ranch that I’ve ever laid my hands on! The quality, double stitching and attention to detail far exceeds anything I’ve ever seen in other high end bags. I definitely get a TUMI vibe as the 1050d is reminiscent of the 1680d Tumi uses.

    The only thing I didn’t get was the Velcro patch matching material but that’s a super minor issue

    By far a minor detail but, ditto.

    Has anyone gotten this?

    I did not however I will be putting a patch on right away so no big.
    This bag is amazing. Helm, and you elves, this is the best Christmas ever. The bag is everything one could hope or ask for. I can’t wait for Christmas morning so I can load it out.

    Ya it's really nice huh! Thanks for the pics guys... I'm glad they're starting to land! The 1050D ev2 is most impressive! I was wondering how popular it would be. Of course I've always enjoyed the ev1 DRB too.

    Although the original shipping estimate said 26Dec, the bags arrived today and I’m so happy. The wolf gray is a little darker than I expected, but in my opinion, that is a good thing.

    Agreed. I actually originally was going to grab a black version. Once I saw Helm mention the grey was going to be darker (like the Arc Teryx) I switched over and am so happy I did.

    Awesome that it came early, enjoy.

    No expense spared! I think this new 210D ripstop nylon Helm is using is excellent, really quality nylon. I first saw how tough and sturdy it was in the admin panels. Should hold up really well to gear contact and abrasion.
