We're out of the Grape fabric: no more bags in Grape will be made. And, unlike Plum, we definitely won't be able to get anymore Grape fabric. (The Grape ballistic nylon fabric that is available to us has flaws which we find unacceptable.)

Bags still available in Grape as of today (07/20/07):
The Style
Kit (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/ACC/TB0960)
The ID (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0805)
The Ego (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0830)
The Zephyr (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0720)
The Aeronaut (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0906)
The LUX (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0650)

Darcy, any chance that bags formerly produced in Grape will be made in Plum? Particularly (she hints, longingly) the Aeronaut? Or should I just go ahead and order a Grape Aeronaut while some-shade-of-purple remains available?

It's unlikely that we would replace Ballistic Nylon (Grape) with Cordura (Plum). Sorry! No Plum replacements.

Sorry, Darcy! I was just thinking about color, and not about the difference in the actual materials.

Don't be sorry! It's a good question. We've toyed with the idea of mixing Cordura and Ballistic together, but no one is quite sold on how that looks.

Darcy, if you discontinue grape for the LUX (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0650) will you at least bring back crimson (or, as dsg29 would say, RED) as a color option? The only other color options seem to be Kiwi, Steel, or Black.

P.S. I've put in orders for dark blue and wasabi brain cells before those (Cordura) color options vanish, but that's another thread (http://forums.tombihn.com/showthread.php?t=963).

Yes - we will bring back Crimson. In fact, there's one Crimson LUX left right now: I think it was hiding in the store.
