Default Salient Contender

Just curious why a thread hasn't been started for this bag yet. Am I missing something? Looks like they added a rain fly and made several other improvements. Thoughts?

Hi Johnson,
I was going to create the thread tomorrow morning. They just got added to the site today as we were waiting for them to come into stock first. There is approximately 20 of each color currently to see how the market is for the bag. I believe there is no rain fly which I am checking in currently. The "rain fly" in question I believe is the front flap as you can leave it down and it will block the rain from going into the bag. The material is naturally water resistant.

This is now considered the contender+. I personally like the orange and smoke color myself. The reinforced straps are an excellent addition to this bag.

Just an FYI, but 1000D is not as waterproof as 500D and is more prone to snags.

Just to clarify, Contender bags, including the Contender Plus, are made out of all ballistic nylon, 1680D and 1050D. This is the toughest material you can use to make a bag, and makes the bags as water resistant as you can get without adding a rainfly. I used my Contender in a full rain round, with my cell phone in one of the pockets..Rain got all over my bag, but my cell phone was completely dry when i pulled it out at the end of the round.
