The custom pack creator is pretty cool.

Kevin and the crew have done a lot to silence the "if only you offered a bag with X and Y features plus a pocket at Z in size Q" crowd with their excellent custom pack creator. Pretty much every size and pocket layout is available. It's freaking cool. I just had them do a 3500 cu in with a bottle pocket on the wearer's right, a front Gila-style mesh stuff pocket, and a tall zip pocket along the left side in the 210d X-Pac X21 fabric. I'm right handed and like to drink from a bottle, I appreciate a large mesh stuff pouch for dumping wet gear in or carrying a full water bladder to camp, and the tall zip pocket is for raingear, lunch/snacks, binocs, water filter, and stuff you want quick access to during the day. Check it out:

That's hilarious...the last few days I've been thinking about building that exact pack in Integrated with X33 Multicam as my next do anything hike / dayhunt pack. I want a water bottle on right, with a zippered tall pocket on left. I may swap out for a peregrine style face though, not decided.

Pretty cool indeed. Funny they still include the grab handle above the zipper pocket even though it is on a 3500 pack instead of 6000... How does it fold over into a 1200 cuin day pack with the smaller pack bag and the mesh rear - can you get it to fold up neat like the Brooks/Saker? Would be cool to see a picture as I would do something similar on 4800 bag if I could save up enough.

This is an overnight-only hunting bag, so I have not tried to shrink it down. I sewed my own ~2k cu inch daypack bag for the frame.

I'd love to do that with one of the new Flight packs....I love having a tall side pocket like the Gossamer Gear Mariposa. Will the new Flight packs eventually show up on the Custom Pack Creator?
