Engineering wise air to air just makes sense, for extended use. Don't get me wrong, air to water has its benefits as well - but with water having a higher specific heat (requires more energy to make it shift temperature by 1 degree) heatsoak it more of a concern. Once hot that water will take longer to cool down.

With that said, you can also see the positive side of air to water. All in all the Evolve kit looks great and I can't wait to see it in person. - Nice work guys
