    These are exactly the changes I was hoping for! This just might be my ideal EDC. Can I just place my order already!?

    Psyched!

    Looking at the first picture it appears that the straps are sown into the seam where the bottom "tub" material meets the main body material. I don't see the handy tri-glide connectors at the bottom which allowed for the easy red strap swap's.
    I really like the option of using the red/black accents on the Shadow Guide, that was one feature I would hope would make it into the V2.

    One thing I really like in the V2 is moving the top pocket zipper to the back of the bag, I have dropped a lot of loose things out of that pocket over time, so much so I put in a big mesh ghost whale pouch and everything gets zipped in there and it is clipped in the pocket.

    Another neat feature is the blacked out TB logo patch, so stealth, a really nice touch.

    Shameless photo link to my SG in the rock gym a while back.

    I can't wait to see the specs for the bag! Hopefully the new version is a little smaller than V1

    There are supposed to be two sizes, one like V1 and a smaller size (which is awesome because I’m a 5’3” woman with a short waist).

    Haha! Trying very hard to convince myself that I don't need another bag, I already have too many, and the ones I have are doing just fine.. I wonder how long my willpower can last.

    We all know that once we get to that stage, it's inevitable... Reistance is futile. Good luck!

    Oh, I’m definitely sticking with the smaller size, it should still be plenty big enough for my purpose! But it’s great to have options... Can’t wait.Embarrassment

    Seeing as they are offering two sizes, I wonder if the V2 small size will be more in line with the Smart Alec in terms of measurements and capacity.
    The V1 SG is 31L and is smaller around and taller than the SA. I wonder when scaling it down if they shorten it and increase the circumference and hit the same(ish) volume of the SA at around 26L.
    The only top loader left is the full guides pack, so with this new SG V2 they may be able to fill two niche's with one design in two sizes.
    (that niche being a streamlined top loading pack with no outside pockets)

    I asked Customer Service about the size back in January and the answer was "somewhere in the mid-20s".
