Did they have any idea when that could be?

Brad,

Any concerns with re-posting the first prototype pic elsewhere?  No mention of LFer.,.just dropping a snap to see what the resultant frenzy would look like among non-.mil types and GoRuck afficianados.

It is better that they do it imperfectly than that you do it perfectly. For it is their war and their country and your time here is limited.

Who else has had their hands on this pack?  Impressions?

It was pages back, but I handled it a bit. Not under load, but at the time it was semi-new I would have gotten it. I never really liked the RAID, but reduced weight and the other little features made it very nice, would have fit a niche I had. 

But... took forever so I have bought other things I like since then. Not sure I'd get it now but maybe. For what I am doing now (travel, low-profile, some light hiking) it might be rather good, as it was designed to be indeed.

I was going to "not quite studboard" a post on my recent deployment pack, but I don't think it or I even rate that high . For years I've been using my original RAID as my day pack, but it's gotten to the point where what I carry and accessibility to it have changed, and the "one big space" of the RAID doesn't work well anymore.

I received a giveaway a while back of a OGIO Mastermind. It's a cross between a golf and computer geek pack. It even has icons on each pocket to tell you what goes there (I shit you not). I ended up taking it to the Michael deployment, and the fucker just plain works. The number, size and accessibility of the pockets is near perfect, at least for me, doing medical/admin. The downside to it is durability. I had to go to the cobbler (that's a shoemaker for you Philistines) to have it resewn in one spot when I got back. Also, it has no Nalgene pouch, or ability to attach one. I moused a Zulu carrier and paracord onto it.

I carried everything from a 17" laptop to MRE to trauma kit in it. I know the Fight or Flight is quite far down the design road, but if it's not too late, I'd love to see some of these specs added in. Either way, is the FoF near availability?

having seen the mind-numbing/head banging/frustrating nightmare that taking a pack from verbal / paper concept to a tangible - in the hands item- I would advise patience. 

And even then- once the prototype is in hand the process isn't over. The actual "build 1000 of them" process has to be developed, refined, tweaked and evaluated to see if it is even feasible at a price point that is realistic.

Once again... I would advise patience.

Oh I understand the whole patience thing, and I am, when I have to be. I just figured to bring it back to peoples minds since it has been 5 months from Brads update.

So what you are saying is we should propose design changes?

There has been some 'back-room' action on this. This WILL happen by spring.

Brad, 

Any update on the bag?

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate and I picture us invading that world because they would never expect it.

There has been progress.

I am going to have a cost/price on Tuesday. And a production sample (not just a prototype) in 3 weeks.

Once we get that and we can all see what we're going to get, I think a button to order packs will be in order...

Brad

Sweet! Just in time for fall!

It is amazing (in a good way) that this has been in development for about two years now.

Brad, will the form of the production sample follow the prototype from this page?

Yep - big update! I have pricing for the project. Pricing not too bad - about what I was expected for small batch high-end production. 

They're going to sell for $299 (more than a RAID, less than a Goruck). Orders from our brothers in this thread (or PM) will be only $254. Multicam is an extra $22 bucks. 

Here's the catch. I have some minimums to meet for them to be produced. So, if we're serious, I need to know. Right? 

Colors will be Black, Coyote, Ranger Green, Multicam, and Wolf Gray.  

A final production sample with all of this thread' improvements will be made (hasn't been made yet - operators are standing by) once we have enough commitments. 

Now that pricing is out, lets see what happens!  

Brad

I need two- One in Grey and one in Coyote

One in Wolf Gray please.

is this open for mention at other pack groups?

Realize it's throughout this thread but can we get a post of the feature description of what the final production version would be like?

Including empty weight would be helpful.

Agreed.  A specific focus on details of the compression straps, shoulder straps (and load lifter arrangement), number of comm/hydro ports and location, and internal organization would be very helpful towards getting the word out.

Here are the updates that are going to happen to the pack:

  1. Add Cris-Cross bungee to the front face of the pack. Sew webbing loops the sides of the front to attach bungee. Attach bungee to the face of the pack by cris-crossing side-to-side through the webbing loops and then terminating with a cord-lock. There should be one webbing loop at the bottom (in the center). 
  1. Remove the soft-velcro patch on face of the pack. 
  1. Commo ports – there are too many on this pack. One center commo/hydration port is perfect. Production version should remove two of the three commo ports. 
  1. Side pockets on the top, with the fastex buckle are too tall. Remove the fastex buckles that closes the side pockets at the top. Make the side pockets HALF as tall and close with Velcro instead of buckles. Include pull tabs at the Velcro closure to make it easy to peel-apart the two sides. The side pockets are necessary to be just tall enough to put away a water bottle. 
  1. Make the pack out of 500D Cordura. But the bottom of the pack should be Abrasion resistant - use 1000 D Cordura on the bottom. Include Drainage Grommets at the bottom.

Was there anything about a brighter interior color for increased visibility?

Damn shame. That seems like such a simple thing.

Guess it just shows how complicated stuff like this can be.

quick question, is there still interior Velcro? if so, what color? if so, how about tan? that would still be lighter than black.
