Heads up, AWS still has some beavertail packs in stock without their strap kit in Multicam and Coyote for $162.87 - this is a fucking STEAL compared to the Eagle offering.

eBay? I think I may have gotten the last one, AWS called me to confirm the order and said it was their last one, they may make more though because she said it was a popular item (and why not! Better than Eagle for 2/3 the price).

That's funny - I thought I got the last one. They forgot to ship my order so when I called asking what the status was they said they had one left and overnighted it to me.

Much, much better than the Eagle Yote - but it's actually a copy of another an Eagle pack that is pretty much unobtanium.

Out of curiosity, what makes it so much better than the Yote to you ?

Biggest plus is the removable beavertail and the MOLLE on the inside of the flap so you can add pouches. It's a copy of the Eagle 'Beavertail' pack, which is their upgrade of the Yote. Of course, since Eagle has mostly stopped selling commercially (ATK decided to focus on Blackhawk as their commercial option and Eagle for contracts), as danneskjold pointed out their products are nearly impossible to get ahold of.

This is actually a direct copy of an Eagle product that is neither the Yote or the Beavertail pack. I have heard it referred to as "STS Pack" but I'm not sure what the official Eagle nomenclature is.

As to what makes it better than the standard Yote?
    Removable Beavertail
    No useless pouches on the side
    Beavertail is able to cinch down much more than the Yote making it lower profile
    MOLLE on the back and the sides

I would absolutely call them on Monday - their CS isn't terrible, but you 100% need to call them to get anything done.

Hopefully they keep doing runs of these and expand their product line. So far I have been very impressed with the quality and the price is great.

AWS still tracks shipments and orders on printed paper files - their inventory system isn't the greatest, so who knows what they'll be able to accomplish. I've been getting stuff from them on/off for 4 or 5 years now and the trick is to ALWAYS call and follow up.

They have a new store that is a couple of blocks away from their old location on Murchinson.

Well I called them today and hey said it is shipping tomorrow. So I'm guessing that they are making more of these things? So is this pack dimensionally the same as its eagle counterpart?

Yes it is. Same rough shape as my Eagle Yote was. I guess this is one of those 'discontinued but not really' products they sell.
