    Hey David, for the new gray what we did was get the fabric mill to replicate the original Wolf Gray from Arcteryx. Hope this better explains it! Thanks for joining the clan!

    Thanks for the explanation! I’m curious; what was the name of that original greenish gray color on the Ev1? And do you have plans to use that color option again for the Ev2? Not a big deal either way; I just like green.

    And thx!! Been learning a lot from being a lurker.

    Edit: autocorrect

    Oddly enough the reason why I switched to the new Wolf Gray was because some were telling me that the origina gray was too green! The other thing is that the fabric we procure is being used across several brands so when we choose a color it needs to work for the others too. We buy fabric directly from the mills so the minimums are quite significant. While I am currently looking at new fabric and colors for next year, I'm kinda limited for now.

    Ha! Thanks for the responses and explanations! I’m sure you’ve figured by now out you can’t please everyone. Arcteryx-esque Wolf Gray will be beautiful, and I will love it and be thankful to have a high quality backpack. ;)

    I would also be interested in a ballistic panel depending on the cost.

    A19-EV2-GY, BVT

    ^ is the wolf grey with the same admin panel as the gen 1 Evade and a beavertail... Correct coding?

    What does the BVT do to cost? Can the stock shock cord accompany the beavertail to swap back and forth?

    Would like to add a set of mesh Matroskya pouches to the order if possible.

    Do you/SERT still have the Velcro backed ID patches?

    @HELM thanks for the opportunity and that pack you posted in #183 of the original wish list thread is tits.

    @HELM, please sign me up for a A19-EV2-BNB (1050d ballistic nylon in black). Thank you sir!

    Btw quick question, do you think the price of the 500d black and the 1050d ballistic nylon will be the same? If there’s a difference, do you have an idea of how much?

    Sorry guys, been off the reservation, I have to make a count tomorrow and make sure we everyone covered so let me revert on this. And yes the 1050D ballistic nylon will cost more; I will post pricing as soon as I have it firmed up. In the meantime let me go get 2 new photos uploaded; just did this within the hour. Will have more over the weekend. Thanks all.

    Thank you @HELM for the update!

    Ques:
    Will the EV2 also include the two 1.5" loops for compatibility and attachment of the waist belt?
