UPDATEAugust 30th - Please note that our design & production studio in Saigon, Vietnam is currently closed as part of the city wide lockdown mandate due to the delta variant. This lockdown is supposed to expire on September 30th but it might be extended. Because of this lockdown we will not be to able to replenish our inventory until further notice. Updates are always provided on our FB page but we will include these here for the benefit of those who do not do social media. Our apologies to all who have been waiting for our products. Thanks.
Our production studio in HCMC (Saigon), Vietnam is still closed due to the Covid lockdown in the city. Latest update indicates that this lockdown will continue until Sept 15th. (FB announcement HERE).
We had these Evades on the production line before the lockdown while we kept the pre-order open. We have however closed pre-order for now until our production studio is allowed to re-open.
We ask that you used the NOTIFY ME feature on this page until further notice. Our apologies for the inconvenience and we thank you for your patience!
NEXT: Our EVADE backpacks are built with some heft and as a result the Full (version) packs weigh 4.0 lbs or more depending on your fabric choice. So BEFORE you place an order, please be aware of this.
