    Question Eclipse front flap

    Hi,

    I have a question about the front flap of the Eclipse. Is it just a flap? Or does it have a pocket, too? I always look for easily accessible outside pockets when buying a shoulder bag. The Eclipse looks perfect except for this one question...

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi!

    The front flap of the Eclipse is just a flap - under that flap, there are organizer pockets. There is one exterior pocket on the Eclipse, and that's the flat pocket on the back of the bag - great for magazines, newspapers, etc.

    We are considering redesigning the Eclipse - so I take it you'd vote for more external pockets? Do you have any other suggestions?

    Is the redesign on the Eclipse complete? I REALLY want one. I love the size, but the colors available right now are so limited.

    I'd hate to settle and get one now. Especially if the new ones are coming out soon?

    Tom's still working on it - but we will have one more batch of the Size 4 Eclipse before the new design comes out. That next batch should be out in about one month. However, there won't be any crazy new colors - just the usual Black, Charcoal, and Silver. Sorry!

    Those Size 3 Eclipses are the last of their kind....the colors we have are:

    Black/Blue Glitter
    Black/Grape
    Black/Silver
    Black/Black

    Do the Grape or Blue Glitter interest you? We only have one of each left...
