    Found this when digging through some stuff this weekend. Thought it might be an option, but probably not. Are they even still making/selling these anymore? From what I recollect this is what Eagle considered to be ďtanĒ even though it looks pretty OD. I had/have other Eagle gear that they called OD though and that stuff was definitely a darker green.

    they attach to either side of the main bag with the little black plastic clips and you can cinch them down with the straps.

    I used them back in the day to hold my flipflops in one and my toiletries and sundries in the other when traveling.

    I believe they called it "khaki. Or maybe my brain is just saying that because it makes more sense.

    That pack is way too clean. I would suggest using it, or if it really doesn't fit your needs, sell it to some gearhead and finance the new pack.

    The usual places still make that same design, the best are legacy Eagle and LBT. Still useful, if mil-ish looks are okay.

    Joe S is spot on. That is an exceptionally well constructed pack. 1000D cordura, YKK zippers, Tier 1 plastic buckles etc.

    That made in the USA pre conglomerate Eagle Industries ďsystemĒ would certainly net you 75-100 after USPS large box flat rate shipping CONUS. Easily.

    That would also be a perfect jumper cables/charger box/FAK/4 rain ponchos/granola bar and water stays in the car pack given the build quality and sunk costs.

    I forgot I had wanted to come back to this...

    Probably the funniest thing is some of the currently-recommended bags were never mentioned before, but also how consistently some bags are insistently recommended despite having been previously, repeatedly, rejected.

    One other thing of note is that initially I had a criteria of WANTING a pistol pocket but after having a couple of different pistol-pocket bags now, Iíve realized that:
    1. Adding that pocket not only adds the bulk of the pocket, but also the bulk and weight of various stiffeners, etc. around the pocket
    2. Companies making bags with dedicated pistol pouches arenít bag companies, they are legal coma itís, which means they donít know Dick about bags and they tend to have other issues making them even more bad as a bag
    3. I donít believe I ever actually wound up putting a pistol in that dedicated space on any of the bags I bought


    Took awhile for me to figure all that out.

    But, again, this whole comedic journey has probably been somewhat blown out of proportion in the minds of some readers. Understanding that itís gone on for years should provide at least some context.

    at the end of the day, I seem to be arriving at the same thing I usually do, which is that there really isnít much in my life that I actually need or want to be planning around guns/carrying/gun fighting/etc. in which case suddenly the Gregory or Osprey bags become more valid options.

    And Iím betting that eventually I just wind up with the ding dang Tom Binh.
