    Curses! I saw the 5.11 Black Friday threat and decided that it would be a great idea to go to the 5.11 site to browse, even though I just purchased a Vanquest Falconer 27 and Arc'teryx Khyber 50 three weeks ago. The Kyber is still in shipping bag!

    The good news: I did NOT buy anything from the 5.11 site.

    The bad news: I decided the check the LA Police Gear sales, and they have the same 25% off all 5.11 discount. PLUS they have freebies if you spend enough. SOOOOOOO.................. I have a new Rush 72 in Sandstone on it's way, with the following freebies: LAPG velcro hat, Rite in the Rain Notebook, and LAPG Trama Pack. I thought the $3.99 shipping would be worth getting all those nice free things.

    Further bad news: After ordering the Rush 72, my inbox went "DING!". And guess who it was? Why, Vanquest decided to send me spam about their Black Friday deals. Again, being a sucker, I clicked on the link and low and behold, the IBEX 30 is discounted to $112! Well then, even though I have no use for this bag, the deal was too good to pass up. Select Wolf! Add to Cart! Wait! Do I see an FTIM Organizer for... $14???? Select WOLF!!! ADD TO CART!!!! Hmm... now I need a pack of Molle Sticks to go with it. SELECT WOLF!!!! ADD... TO...CARTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!

    The crazy thing is that it's not even Black Friday yet. Oh boy, it's going to be a long and fun week.

    So bags have you bought for this year's Black Friday sales?

    I came off the GR1 Lightspeed thread and looked at the Goruck website and accidentally bought 3 bags it was too tempting. I have so many bags in different colours with various pouches it was looking messy. Needed to bags in same colours. So got a bullet in multicam (replacing old coyote tan) together with gym bag and kit bag in ranger green. The last 2 bags will go with my ranger green GR2 for the perfect holiday luggage.

    First Tactical Tactix Pack here.

    I am arguing with myself about the Envoy 3 as I already have an Envoy 2 ?

    I am so weak.

    I too fell under the spell of Vanquest Black Friday prices. Couldn't pass up a black MC Mobius (it will match my black MC Envoy)!

    I pulled the trigger on a Timbuk 2 Command Messenger. They've made some upgrades to it that really fit the bill for me. I won't use it as an EDC, I'm using the Goruck GR1 at the moment (planning on a switch to the Alpha One Niner Evade in the next few weeks). I've got a Kifaru Antero that goes in and out of EDC service as well. Like most of you...way too many bags and yet to find the perfect one. I'm looking to pick up a Mystery Ranch Streetfighter but they say they are out of them until sometime in January.

    needed a pack that would hold my new "big :censored: laptop" (MSI 17" gaming set up) and the Goruck GR2 is advertised as able to do just that, after watching a couple of youtube vids and seeing a guy pull the next larger model from mine out of the laptop compartment I was fairly well sold. I thought about it purring the veterans day sale, but was not 100% sure which way I wanted to go with it. So I ordered a Wolf Grey GR2 34, on thanksgiving day and it shipped yesterday/

    Went with a Goruck GR1 . Wished I looked around a bit more to find this perfect pack. Went from Eberlestock Halftrack, MR Snapdragon and MR Streetfighter to a GR1 and love it! Going to get rid of the others, takers? lol

    I pulled the trigger on a Vanquest Envoy 3.0 to replace the 2.0 I bought exactly two years ago on Black Friday. I picked up a couple of the EDCM 2.0 slim maximizers as well.

    The 2.0 will be going up on the block soon.

    I've replied to this thread twice and my replies aren't showing. This is a test to see if a third post shows up.

    Interesting, this showed up.

    Edit to add the post I've been trying to make:

    I bought a Rush 12 at Field and Stream, they price matched 5.11's price then I signed up for the newsletter and immediately got $10 off every $50 spent (up to $30 off), then I had a gift card. I wound up paying $10 out of my own pocket for the pack.

    I picked up a HPG Tarahumara for a new EDC bag. I've been wanting one for some time and used the madness of cyber monday shopping with the wife to finally get one.
