    2018 Wish List

    What is your wish for 2018?

    Here is mine. I was looking at my FJNs. I have two, one in azure that I use for work and one in plum for the volunteering that I do. My wish is for the FJN to be made in the awesome new ballistic colors. And also for Olive and Canyon to stick around a little longer too.
    Seeking Solar shop bags and Solar packing cube shoulder bag Also coveting an Iberian Synapse or Copilot

    Panniers. (Apparently I need more than 10 characters.)

      That the Daylight Briefcase, seemingly "in production" for quite awhile, comes available in both Red Blend and Nordic.

        Four wishes:

        1. Something like the Pilot, but with a dedicated laptop sleeve (not cache) big enough for a Macbook Pro 15 inch.

        2. A new external material/color/pattern that's like a heather gray pattern. A material that performs like Tom Bihn's other materials because I'm super-vain and want to carry stuff that's heather gray to go with my raw denim jeans and whatever.

        3. Magnets. Magnets are the best thing ever for quick access pockets. Tom Bihn should do more stuff with magnets.

        4. A laptop compartment Aeronaut.

          I mentioned in the 2017 thread how Tom Bihn has come through on my big requests for the year (Adult Sprout, zip top tote) and even anticipated the one I was about to make but hadn't yet (Travel Cubelet).
          YAY Tom Bihn!

          So all I can ask for at this point (until I can imagine another product I need) is to request that 400d black halcyon is used for the pop tote and the travel cubelet. I find that fabric easier to wipe dirt off of than the 525/200 ballistic.
          Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is a PickUp Truck and Everyday Cubelet. Love all my shop bags, ghost whales, cubelets. Hoping to travel again soon to use my A30 and co-pilot.

            Like you have stuff with both just sitting around and you remember what each one is?

                Yes.
                I have a 1025 ballistic Aeronaut, a 525 luminary, and 525/200 cubelets. Its easy for me to tell which is which by looking at them/feeling them with the 1025 being the heaviest, and the 200 being almost like parapack.

                  I'd love to see the Aeronauts in 525/210 Ballistic!

                  I'd also love to see something like a 33L Smart Alec - one big compartment, sleek profile, with compression straps or cord. Hopefully with a frame sheet and a huge Hero's Journey style opening.
                  Current Everyday Carry: S19 in Cloud/Island, 15C Cache, SE in Wasabi, SC in Fjord; Cubelets in Dawn, Canyon, and Grass, COW in Original Halcyon
                  Current Travel Carry: A30 in Original Halcyon/Ultraviolet, DLBP in Nordic, PCSB in Sitka, Large TT in Sitka, SSK in Wasabi, 3DOC in Solar

                    My wish is simple: a standard sized light loop. They're currently sized to fit only Guardian Lights, which are quite a bit bigger than every rear reflector light made (and less effective, to be honest).
                    I understand TB sells Guardian Lights, but as a nighttime cyclist, I need something more powerful to be safe.

                      A30 with HsJ features - internal frame and compression straps.

                      And I wouldn’t be disappointed in a slightly bigger Luminary. I love mine and use it as EDC, but would love its big sister even more if it had room for more books and larger phones (current phone fits but it’s time for an upgrade... )

                      Edit: wish you could buy the HsJ a la carte. I love the design of this bag but don’t see me having the $$$ to spring for the whole package all at once...

                        The yarn is heaviest, right?

                        What do the several feel like to the touch? Are they all smooth? How would you compare them?

                          Mini Pop Tote. Just a somewhat smaller main compartment, so I can squeeze it in a S25, even if they both have some stuff inside.

                          Pink halcyon. Not purple or red. For shop bags and bag interiors and small accessories.

                          Some take on a zip wallet. Bigger than the one currently offered, but not big enough to be its own clutch/bag either. I have this wallet from haiku that I really like, because it everything zips shut, and it's not huge. They don't seem to make it anymore. Their current zip wallet seems big to me; I don't need a phone to fit inside or for it to fit in my pockets, but I would like something that carries cash as well as cards that opens more than the TB wallet.

                            Negative on the magnets. Magnets are bad. They can screw up credit cards and who knows what else.

                              So something like the Guide’s Pack? Or more of a smaller HsJ?
