I'm real tempted, but holding out for the XL version. I've hit the request button for the XL everywhere I could find it. Anyone know where I can find one for sale?
The XL is awesome. worth the wait.
I have small version bought directly from CountyComm, and would love the XL one, but I'm not sure they make it anymore, not listed on the site: https://countycomm.com/collections/bags. Maybe Massdrop can arrange a special order?
Overall I love the bag, using it for EDC and to carry a compact tripod and two very small camera. On the negative side I had one zip fail and had to repair it myself - stitching at the end of the zipper failed, zipper pull went off the rails and the zip peeled open. I didn't contact CountyComm for a refund/replacement/repair because I live the in the UK and they only ship to USA addresses - when I bought it I had a friend stateside receive then forward to me.
Having said all that I'm sure they would have been accomodating, I have a load of CountyCom stuff (capsules, two flashlights etc) and they've all been high quality and rock solid, and the bag is too apart from the one zip, I think I was just unlucky and this was an anomaly.
If anyone wants any questions answered or pictures let me know here and will oblige - I'll show you what I'm fitting in and what I've attached to the bag's molle.
Overall I recommend it.
I got the XL (about 27 x 10 inches) in grey that I bought several years ago when it was $39. I have used it a few times slinging my disassembled AR-15 or MK-4 over the back while riding my bike. Although the bag works fantastic for that purpose, I stopped carrying that way as the weapons would certainly would break my back during an accident. Otherwise, I wish they would have molly or Velcro straps inside to secure additional storage bags as otherwise everything loose rumbles down to the lowest part of the bag during the commute. The small side pouches are not very large and will not fit much. Now the bags just sits in my closet waiting to be gifted away. It seems that the shorter version would still have the problem w/gravity pulling everything to the lowest part of the bag though. How did you fix that issue?
The smaller one does have the same issue with stuff falling to the bottom. Generally I'm carrying a fleece in there or something light, with the pockets stuffed with camera gear and the tripod in the aerial sleeve in the back.
I do use approximately cube shaped containers, stuff that would be typically be molle'd on the outside of bags which tend to wedge in the inside. I have considered retrofitting the inside with some way to attach things, and also looked for a long narrow admin panel with molle that also might work.
I've got an M5 mag pouch on the shoulder strap molle to hold a theta camera and a thin admin pouch on the back mollle to hold an iPad mini. Also an ITS Honey Badger patch but that's not really relevant :)
What type of cameras are you carrying with it? Will a Fuji XT1 and gorilla pod fit with a few more accessories?
Only small stuff, I carry a Ricoh GR and a Ricoh Theta in the side pockets and a tripod in the aerial sleeve leaving the main compartment empty.
I think you could easilly carry a gorrilapod in the long side pocket, an XT1 and two average lenses in cases in the main compartment.
