    It really made a difference though. Comparing it to the Sep.19th BT proto pics, I see the revision on top attachment straps and deletion of the top web loops. Moving the straps up seems to really help pull that top half in without any odd angles creating buckling fabric. You dialed it in for sure... All this has been worth the wait! Nice!

    Looking good, @HELM!, Sure am glad that I went with the 1050D ballistic nylon. That will look really good as an office carry and travel bag.

    I guess that's the other half of my brain, the part that spent 15 years in the Garment District in NYC. If it doesn't look right, it ain't right and man I just didn't care for how it looked nor functioned. That said, being a perfectionist sometimes can be a bit of a challenge.

    So, if I understand correctly the top compression straps are going to be 3/4" like the EV1? In the production pics the comp strap and srb's do look like 1".

    Downgraded from 1" webbing? Less bulky?

    That would be nice to have a choice of SRB's or adjustable G-Hooks. Thank you for making them available. Looking forward to it. Glad it's all removable.
    :cool:

    Took two different email accounts to finally get privileges to post on this forum. I hope I'm not too late!! I have an Evade 1 and love it, and have been perusing this thread while patiently awaiting approval of my account.

    I'd like to reserve the following:
    A19-EV2-BNB, PALS and Type 2

    Here's hoping I'm not too late!

    It will be 3/4" compression straps. I think the 1" webbing and buckles are a tad too bulky. It would be okay for a tactical type backpack but I prefer a slicker look.

    @HELM, good call. Being "under the radar" is sometimes better in travel or office carry applications.

    In past experiences, carrying my Rush 24 into the office got quite some looks. Needless to say, I switched to a Covert 18. :lol:

    I like the way the Beaver Tail flows with the lines of the front pocket cut too!
    This is the type of design that I imagine you can not truly understand until one is made to look at?
    So it looks great to me for sure and better each time you post the progress pics!

    Here's the long awaited video preview. This was a rush job so I might have missed a couple of points. Pricing and final orders online next. Please refrain from sharing or posting this anywhere else. This release is LIMITED and I don't want everyone knocking on my door asking about this pack. It will NOT even be mentioned on A19's FB. Limited means limited! Thanks.

    Couple of minor points are missing on this video (thanks RF) and I will highlight it on the order page later.

    Looks amazing!

    I was just using my Evade this afternoon and wishing it had more space too!

    Thanks for all the great effort and work.

    You’re very welcome guys, the pleasure’s mine. I promise to have online ordering ready by the weekend. After that I gotta jump on yet another long flight back to the Studio to make sure all’s good with production.

    A couple thoughts:

    1- That post-sick voice is straight up Barry White level sexy.

    2- Is that OR Ferossi hoody? How highly do you recommend? Thinking of asking Santa for one of those too.

    3- OMFG this just gets sexier and sexier.

    4- If I thought I was smashing refresh a lot before, the next 36.hours is going to rack up some data usage.

    5- Thank you for everything from bringing the EV1 and 2 to fruition to dealing with all the questions and feedback. Beyond appreciated.

    @HELM - Thank you for allowing us to be part of your EV2 (limited) release! I feel very fortunate to being part of the group. My viewing of the video may have to wait until tomorrow, as the wife just got home from work.

    @HELM, thanks for the video!! It looks fantastic. You are an artist.

    After watching the video, I’m a tad confused on the Type 1/Type 2 options. Does the Evade come with Type 1, but we’re choosing the option for a Type 2 instead (or... in addition to the Type 1? Can both fit in the front pocket?)? Also, I’m looking at the page for said organizers on your site; does the Type 1 have a couple of pockets beneath the zipper?

    Thanks in advance for answering a barrage of “first-timer” questions.

    LOL, thanks man, I ‘blame’ my mom for that funky Dutch accent.

    That’s not the OR Ferossi hoody but I do recommend it or any of their Ferossi tops. I’m just not as impressed with their Ferossi shorts nor pants. But I can’t lie, I do get a Pro discount with OR so i abuse it as long as my wife doesn’t find out!

    Truth of the matter, I’m somewhat spoiled cos as part of the industry i do get access to a number of brands. I’m sure a lot of you guys are not aware that among the many things I have to stay on top of, I’m also a Salomon reseller, mostly their Forces line to LE/Mil. Maybe if there’s enough interest i can help with a group buy in the near future ;)

    And you’re welcome mate, it’s been a pleasure and a great positive experience being part of the EDCF, thanks to you guys!
