Goshawk .. yes also extra compression loops.

Broadwing can work with one or without. With an older Revo panel , it will work with a talon like a precipice. With a new Revo panel it can work like an older pack or like a brooks. Basically meaning it can use side compression or rear face compression or a combination of both. Side compression works best with a talon. It should also be noted, that the talons can almost be clipped into the extra loops if desired but that negates the side access.

Correct gatekeepers are our future at least. I expect there to be some learning curve at first. We are preparing to do a lot of video shoots coming up to better explain pack and tent details. Gatekeepers pretty much allow you to just use the compression system you prefer. For instance on the brooks, I have pretty much settled on being able to do everything with 3 rear face and one spare. On the broadwing, I would likely use the same unless I was planning to "breakaway bag it" then I would have some side compression. Goshawk, I can use like a brooks as well, or side. Peregrine , works best with side.

Sorry I got a little long winded.

Swisski,

The Goshawk also has tabs for compression straps so you don't need a Talon.
And the gatekeepers are bad ass...really nice change and makes the Talon much less fiddly in my opinion.

Did some new pictures get added for some products on the site? I was looking at some of the products again today and just have to comment that the pictures really highlight the products well, and easily show the layout/configuration- nice job!

Question about the new hydration ports, are those utilized by actually putting the bladder in the packbag? I really love the mesh sleeves on the back of the talon and the 1st edition Peregrine for putting my bladder in. In case there is a bladder failure or leak, you don't have to worry about anything inside your bag getting wet.

Thanks

Regarding bladder the peregrine and Gila have ports for bladder in the bag. The brooks has a port for side pocket usage . The rest of the bags don't change

Making another purchase here. Wanted to check in on the current status of the Revolution suspension/frame. Are there any changes/upgrades happening in the near future?

I realize there will always be a progression of changes or upgrades over time, and there is no real benefit to waiting out as eventually there will always be something new. However I figured I might as well check in just to ensure I'm making my best buying decision at this time! I appreciate your feedback.

Thanks

nothing anyone would notice including me . Maybe little stuff but nothing planned at all. We do have a smaller system we are testing but it is an entirely unique product line that feels very similar but is more rec based . Now , we may always introduce a new fabric here and there and are working on some potentially exciting fabrics but they may never materialize as well . Basically it's bull a couple testers and provide feedback and maybe it turns into something or maybe it doesn't
