Alright gang, here's a few of the immediate extras available from the PRE-ORDER for the EVADE 1.5 - limited while stocks last!
NOTE: Please note that the Evade 1.5 is being offered in 2 versions, the 2nd being the Lite model that does not come with the laptop compartment.
We provide the specifications as best as we can right now, most of the updates can be found on our Facebook page so please monitor all related announcements there.
- The one and ONLY difference between the EV1.5 and EV1.5 Lite is the laptop compartment that is absent in the latter. Now that said, for those of you with a slim laptop like the new MBPs or Ultrabooks, you can slipped it into the rear CCW compartment (at an angle) - side zippered entry.
- The EV1.5 comes with ALL the revisions that was incorporated in the Evade 2.0 plus a few new ones.
- Each Evade 1.5 comes with one organizer, and right now we are shipping it with the Type 1 organizer.
- The EV1.5 will accept existing accessories: Beavertail, Padded Hip Belt, Matroksya Pouches, Matroskya 'Deep' Pouches
- It will NOT accept the existing PALS Panel and you don't need one 'cos the Evade 1.5 comes with a loop PALS wall on the back wall in the main compartment!
Added REVISIONS (from the EV 2.0):
- The shoulder straps have been tweaked to make it more comfortable.
- The main compartment is now fully lined with the same 210D gray diamond ripstop.
