I needed to up-grade my EDC because the one I have is too large to be convenient to carry back & forth to work, I want a bag to carry my belongings that I don't want to risk being stolen out of my car, and a bag that can also pack enough jump stuff to carry me for a day or two. The primary reason for the new bag was the hand grab handle, my current bag doesn't have one and it's constantly slipping off my shoulder when unlocking the car or house door's, and I'm aging and need to reduce the weight I carry, so I hope smaller is better, or most likely I'll end up carrying less stuff but it will be heavier,,,,,,, I saw one of these in the reviews, liked everything about it, got he last one the vendor had in black and just before Black Friday sales,,,,, kind a funny thing about that too, my purchase price was less than their Black Friday sale price. The only thing is, now that it's almost here I think it's still going to be too large, and another thing about the design is that here in the PNW we see a lot of rain, the top cover only extends to the edge of the bag, and I think it needs rain flaps to cover the edge better. I also ordered the CC mag and holster also arriving today Not too many threads down I saw a link to zipper pull ends so those won't be here for another week or two. Anybody got some pro's or con's about Vanquest products?
