The Evade 1.5 is being offered in 2 versions, FULL and LITE. The Lite model does not come with the laptop compartment. 

NOTEOur EVADE backpacks are built with some heft and as a result the Lite (version) packs weigh 3.7 lbs or more depending on your fabric choice. So BEFORE you place an order, please be aware of this.

  1. 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.
  2. Here's a link to a great review video of the Evade 1.5; thanks and credit goes to George DEFINED.
  3. Here's another link to a Carryology review of the Evade 1.5 
  4. Another video review this time of the Evade 1.5 Lite version, by Odie Matthews.
  5. Each Evade 1.5 comes with one organizer, and right now we are shipping it with the Type 1 organizer.
  6. The EV1.5 will accept existing accessories: BeavertailPadded Hip BeltMatroksya PouchesMatroskya 'Deep' Pouches
  7. 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):

  1. The shoulder straps have been tweaked to make it more comfortable. The reverse is now mesh.
