                My guess is that the Truck is going to be very popular with knitters and other folks on Ravelry: it has the ability to stand up when empty, but is light weight and has sections. There are new colors, and I haven't seen them yet. But one thing that will be an advantage for folks in places that use A4 paper-- that pocket width can just take A4 as in a thin Rhodia notebook. US letter size paper is too wide to fit. The size makes sense for fitting standard grocery items in the center compartment -- like cereal boxes or 6-pack cans of soda. It does workfor carrying library books, although the standard size books are slightly larger than the center profile, and the original shop bag designs work better.

                    Yes! That was my thinking when I saw the photos.

                        In the Tote Bag FAQ, love the picture of the old Firewood Hauler. Now that’s what I’d like! All new Tom Bihn bags are just too nice to put to such rough use.

                          Once you've read through everything I've written about our new pre-order system, there will be an optional test for credits. Just kidding! Seriously, it's a pretty typical and straight-forward pre-order system besides the couple of benefits we were able to work in (adding in-stock bags to pre-orders and the PPB bags). If you guys have any questions about pre-orders or the new totes, feel free to ask.

                          Hehe. Maybe... it's a fun thing to learn how to do.

                          I'm excited to see all the ways people end up using The Truck. A couple of the ways I've used it so far:

                          I packed it with everything we needed for Fiona's dog training class (she just earned her AKC Novice Trick Dog title!) last weekend: Camp Mat, stainless steel water bowl, two water bottles full of ice water (hot day), treat bag, extra treats, tug toy, chew toy, and, because we were waiting for a while during part of the class, a book and my 13" MacBook Air (needed to do a little work for the debut!) It was super easy to load all of that into the bag and pull various elements out when needed. I also appreciated how separated the water bottles were from everything else (I put them in one of the end pockets.)

                          I've always gotten compliments about my Shop Bags but I get even more about The Truck: the folks who work at the grocery store love loading it (and I do too when they're short on staff and I bag my own groceries.) Loading it is fun like Tetris: it's easy to see in the bag and it's wide / easy to fit stuff in it that you can focus your few seconds on finding the most efficient spot for each grocery item as opposed to holding the bag open or peering into it.
                          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                          Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

                            Oooh, good catch. Thank you. The bags will go up for pre-order on Tuesday, July 24th. We've fixed that on the product pages.

                            Everyone: if you're interested in any of the totes, remember to sign up on any one of the new tote pages to be notified via email the moment they go up for pre-order on the 24th.

                            We might actually offer the firewood hauler as a pre-order item someday... being able to do stuff like that is one of the reasons we're excited about pre-order

                              Thanks, Darcy!!! I love all the new tote designs. Now I have a week to calm down and NOT buy one of every single color and actually choose what I really want. Love the new ballistic colors, too.

                              I'm hoping that the Truck might be a good weaving workshop tote bag. I'm looking forward to doing a testpack.

                                Hmm, I am torn. I'd like to get a good bag for carrying my pumping gear. Right now I'm using my large shop bag, but I don't love it. The zipper large shop bag would be nice to keep everything from spilling out, but the structure of the truck is appealing.

                                Are there any pumping mamas at Tom Bihn who can provide a recommendation?
