You think that's a good deal? Get this: these crazy Aussies are currently running a 20% off sale with the code "DZ18" (no quotation marks). The total for the DG3 (pack+shipping+coupon+convert to USD) is around $250. Buy this shit up yo.
@Aus_Crossfire Think your web page is garbo? You've obviously never tried to shop with AWS. I think it works pretty well, except the menu doesn't work quite right (clicking the fire pack redirects to the DG16) and finding info on the product page is a little difficult (it's spread out instead of concentrated, not in bulleted lists, and I didn't see the litreage/ci listed). I have some ideas but don't feel I have the experience to speak with any kind of authority. I'll still list them here to see what others think.
-I'd like to see a removable lid w/flap stowed underneath, like on the DG16. It'd let the end user slim the pack down a little (reduce capacity+look up while prone), and should be fairly simple to implement.
-It'd be super-cool to see a purpose-built assault pack that could be attached on the hypothetical flat top flap (I guess it'd need PALS webbing). I was thinking 15-18 liters, optional waist strap, contoured and relatively slim shoulder straps, back panel optimized for ventilation (kinda like the AVS 1000). Can take long or short 3l bladders, and maybe a frame sheet. PALS on the sides. Has two compression straps going around the entire bag. Optional slick beavertail, just like on the DG3. My take is that a larger pack like that doesn't benefit from armor integration so that's not necessary.
-Long ways off, but US distributors would be neat.
-Even if you won't be at SHOT, you could make a "virtual booth" overview of your new products for 2019. Videos give you an idea of what a product is like in hand that pictures simply can't convey.
-PLEASE make the boots with a wide toe box. After a while, minimalist shoes splay your toes out to a more natural fan shape, like those that savannah runners have. I can't remember how many popular brands I tried on while trying to find boots, only for my toes to be squished by their straight design.
Diz, thanks for the detailed pictures and reviews. Would never have seen it otherwise. And Crossfire guys, mad props for being so involved with users and inviting of feedback.
