    Helm will be bringing us a couple of companies as a supplier. :)

    Helm brings many years in the pack industry. I had a bunch of stuff that I was going to say but I forgot to go to bed last night and my brain is completely mush. Since I forgot everything I was going to say about helm I will move on the a limited run product. I can have mush brain for this since here is a video.

    The pack In the video below is most likely a one time limited run that will be at an amazing price to introduce the company to the forum. The bag will come in two colors, blue and black. Unless I am mistaken these are about 2 weeks out.

    At 6:20 he mentions a hidden pocket.



    I have sent Helm an email letting him know this thread has been started. He should be on to introduce himself sometime this evening. I am going to take a nap so I can get back to work during the bat shift.

    Thanks guys. Jon, thanks for the intro brother.

    Jon and I have been talking the last few weeks about what we could do together for the forum et all. As the owner of a design and production studio there's much we can do but when we were deciding on an initial product offering, Jon suggested it be a backpack. The backpack in the video is based on another we currently have but the focus here is on the gear that we carry day in, day out. The original prototype was lugged all around the world for almost 2 years, clocking about 125K miles each year. Understandably there are some of us that like PALS webbing on the outside but we decided to keep this one slick. Although the design & concept is somewhat different, I kept the aesthetics basic, a nod to the original Eagle Industries A-III pack.

    Like John said these will be available in two weeks on the forum's store. A special price for forum members will be announced shortly and this pack version will only be available here. After this initial offer we will start offering selected products from the brands I oversee, and hopefully for any new product launch in the future, we will coordinate it with an announcement here on the EDC forum.

    Once again thank you for having us here. It is an honor to be part of the EDC forum.

    Finally! Someone who gets the fact that not everyone is on a swat team or going into combat! A backpack that just looks like a backpack but has excellent internal organization.

    I'm very much interested and will be on the lookout for when the details about cost and colors are up.

    Thanks!
