Well, I put a lot of time in doing research for online reviews from various sites as well as youtube vids. I decided to go ahead and get the Maxpedition Remora Gearslinger. What convinced me to go ahead was seeing one on Ebay this afternoon for $62.50. That was the least expensive amount I've seen for this bag, not counting the clones. I was really tempted to go the the flea market this weekend and look for a clone or get one online. They're in the mid $20 range give or take. But most of the online reviews weren't all that encouraging. Mainly the quality, zippers etc.
Hoping I like it
