I recently purchased the Gator from Red Oxx (www.redoxx.com) and was thoroughly impressed by this bag when I recieved it. The Gator is a shoulder slung bag that looks like it's on steroids! Construction is 1000dn Cordura (yes Cordura - not an imitation) and stainless steel fittings.
Over the years, I have moved away from bulky "backpack" style daypacks and more towards carrying "messenger bag/satchel" type bags that are just large enough to carry a full day's worth of accessories. The Gator fits this bill perfectly. I look forward to taking this bag out on future expeditions (to Siberia in a few months) and putting it through its paces.
My compliments to Jim for his outstanding and prompt service - hard to find businesses today that offer a combination of both great service AND high quality.
