I’m using a 5.11 covrt18 currently. Great pack


I will say it’s a bit weighty but it’s a great ruck

Had a look at the greenroom136 single strap offerings and they are exactly what I want. Bit over my budget thou :(.

anyone have an idea whether they go on sale?

RM550 is about $185. For what you get (materials, build quality, customisation) then I think the value is outstanding already. I think they may do occasional 10-20% off sales from time to time, but they are a small business.

I have actually handled a few in my time, and they truly are excellent. It's not exactly my style however. If you compare to Timbuk2's normal prices for example, it's about on-par but you are comparing a very good mass-market brand with an excellent artisan brand.

Save my pennies then.
Yes, definitely worth it. Some people in my Malaysian office have them and swear by them. One rides a motorbike (not a scooter) and that's all he uses.

Make sure you hit RM600 and you get free postage too. Below that you need to add-on postage costs.
