Alpha One Niner, EVADE 1.5, Pre-Order
$ 265.00 SGD
$ 225.00 SGD
Alright gang, here's the long awaited PRE-ORDER for the EVADE 1.5 and EVADE 1.5 Lite (separate link but please read the info below) !!!
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.
Next, some immediate housekeeping notes before we get to the EV1.5 proper.......
1. A good number of you are already familiar with how we handle our pre-orders. For those who are new, thanks for coming on-board and please do not hesitate to ask any questions - hit us up HERE (email).
2. As with our previous pre-orders, production will be limited on these so first come, first serve basis as usual.
3. Full payments or deposits are NOT required. Please DO NOT make any payments when you place your pre-order. You are NOT obligated and can cancel your order anytime by logging back in and doing so. A couple of weeks before the Evades are ready to ship we will contact you to make your payment then. In essence, order now and pay later.
4. We provide the specifications as best as we can right now but do expect some minor changes later. Updates will be provided on our Facebook page. For instance, we have weights on the 500D packs but we have not sampled one in the 420D nor 1050D so those will be provided later.
5. Expected delivery - right now we are looking at end October. Production is at capacity right now but we will do our best to hasten this if possible.
I think that about covers it so let's dive in with the EV 1.5...................thanks, Helm.
- Once again, the one and ONLY difference between the EV1.5 and EV1.5 Lite (separate order link) 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 EV2.0 plus a few new ones.
- Each Evade 1.5 & EV1.5 Lite comes with one Type 1 organizer, you can purchase a Type 2 organizer separately.
- The EV1.5 will accept existing accessories: Beavertail, Padded Hip Belt, Matroksya Pouches
- It will NOT accept the existing PALS Panel simply because it is too short since the Panel was sized for the EV 2.0.
- There will be two distribution points, Virginia (USA) and Singapore (to cover the Austral-Asia region). If you are from the latter region (to include Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, etc) please place your order at EDC&G. If you place it here, your shipping charge is going to go through the roof.
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.
- The CCW pocket now comes with lockable zipper slide heads (not pulls) for the benefit of those in US states that require transportation in 'locked containers'.
