5th Gen Vehicle Organizer Duty Bags
It's always an exciting time at 911gear.ca when we release a new item. The 5th Gen Vehicle Organizer bag is no exception. We know it's been a short time since we released our 4th Gen bag but this time we had to make changes. Last December we discovered another company was making their own bags based on our designs. We called the company only to find out that the dealer's price was our retail price. Their retail price was $159.99. We called them back and said that's our design. They were very polite in their response but they are still selling our bag design.
We started designing the 5th Gen immediately.
We wanted to add extra storage yet keep the bag at the price point that it's affordable. This design took us 8 months, The first design prototype had to be changed. The second design was better and minor adjustments were made. We set out to test three different prototypes. All of them were great but the last one was by far the best.
Our previous bags really didn't have enough space for patches. Sure you could put on a big patch but it left very little room for smaller morale patches that are popular. We added more patch space on the top as well as the left side of the bag.
M.O.L.L.E / Patch Space: M.O.L.L.E is a popular request for bags so we decided to add more of it.
Front of the Bag: I have always wanted to change the bag front. For some reason, we were stuck on the same design that all the other manufacturers had. The three pocket design that in hindsight is useless.
Keep It The Same: There are some things that shouldn't change. So..
Inside Lid: The inside lid of the 5th Gen bag had a couple of pockets and pen slots. The velcro pocket has a small slit at the bottom for a charge cord to be inserted. The feedback we received was too many slots. So we decided to keep the pockets and tone down the pen slots. We kept the headrest straps to keep the lid open while driving. The zipper pocket inside the lid at the top was also kept. The feedback on that pocket was it was a very useful pocket.
Construction: We know how important support within the bag is for quality. We had added polymer inserts for strength in front, rear, sides and lid. The main zippers on the bag are YKK zippers. YKK zippers are known for their durability. We also use YKK swivels on our suspenders because we know good gear should last.
