I assue they decided to use gray in all 3 color schemes this time around to get a bulk discount on material. Last time, they had to order 5-6 different colors to make 3 color combos. This time around they only had to order gray, green & purple in the cordura and green, red and purple on the interior material.

I tried to find more purple gray pics, but I couldn't see them since I'm not a social media-er. Are there any more pics you can post of it. The purple is alright, but I really liked the blue/gray

Unfortunately, I think we've seen the last of the blue. At least for now. Maybe they'll do it on a future run, but I think this time around they're going with gray, gray/green & gray/purple

Can't wait to get my red/grey Flak3!!!

I am not afraid to do some self-modding to improve whatever minor issues arise. Zip ties can be your best friend!

I'll try to cut my PVC insert back 1/2"-1" in addition to adding a custom gel or foam strap across the bottom of the back, by attaching the strap to the rainfly buttons on the rear of the drink holders. I think that should pad the PVC from hitting the back, if cutting it back does not resolve the problem.

Will see what I can do and post some pics. Hell, they may have the issue fixed by the time I get my backpack anyway.

I've played about 8-9 rounds now with the pvc frame in the bag and I have to say it is 100% improved. Top compartment is rock solid and don't feel anything cutting into my back. I don't even feel the pvc frame. The only downside is I lose one disc out of the main compartment so I am carring 26 discs instead of 27. Don't really know if the 27th disc is needed anyways really. Just wanted to send out an update for u all.

the new versions have resolved the issue with the top divider falling thru as well as the back poking. no modding should be needed

Looks like they said they'll have details closer to release date.

According to Instagram message, looks like release date is November.

I'm sure they'll probably have some news for the Flak3 guys before then though. They've been pretty good about communication with me, so I'm sure they'll let us know when they have some relevant news.
