    Hey, I've a long history of collecting high end bags & gear.
    ~2005/6 I acquired a Gen 1 TAD gear Fast Pack & Raptor:
    [​IMG]

    The jacket is getting to the point of wetting out in the shoulders after any prolonged rain/snow, but still does a great job of cutting the wind. I might replace it, not sure yet.

    The pack held up well for ~6 years of constant use with heavy loads ( laptop & text books, hiking on the weekends etc) but the mesh padding at the base & hapalon(?) sheet started wearing through. A bit of gorilla tape and it's been fine since. It's in storage some where, and of you have an idea of value?

    Around 2011 I moved into a more corporate role and acquired a saddleback full sized briefcase which was great as I was car commuting up until this spring when I moved west and got a MR 3DAP as a 10lb leather briefcase and a 30 minute bike ride every morning don't do to well together.

    Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the saddleback or 3DAP accessible.
