Don't give up on Blackhawk Industries. Yes it is owned by a friend of mine and yes I'm biased. I use a lot of their gear both personally and as part of a package we provide the military. They build great stuff and customer service combined with on time shipping/delivery is first rate or I wouldn't work with them. See if you can order a catalog from the website. Check out Hydrastorm at Blackhawk for hydration gear too. Bill
