    Nik's Minimalist Wallets

    Shadow Guide
    (also: Shadow Guide Padded Hip Belt)

    Road Buddy Duffel 36
    Road Buddy Duffel 60
    (also: Road Buddy Lash Straps)

    Tom's Firewood Carrier

    We hope you guys have as much fun learning about the new designs as we did making (and using!) them.

    If these designs resonate with you, we think you'll appreciate them: we've been using them ourselves for over a year now (and, in the case of the Road Buddys and Firewood Carrier, we've been using variations on the new designs for decades) and they're stellar. Solid design/materials/workmanship, easy on the eyes, and they do what they need to do.

    And if you didn't see what you were hoping for this time around.... there's always next year (And the Wish List thread!)

    Happy to answer questions anyone has about the bags -- feel free to ask!

    P.S. Here's a link to the blog post with a summary of each design.

          @Darcy... we can assume that the 5.7" dimension on Nik's wallet is the unfolded dimension, yes?
          I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

            Ah, I'm glad you asked. Yes, 5.7" is the unfolded dimension -- updating the specs right now to reflect that (and add the folded dimension, too).

              Oh I am SO HAPPY but will be so much poorer! My wish has been granted - the Road Duffel has reappeared albeit in a slightly different form as the Road Buddy - YAY! Now have to make colour choices!!!!!
              What is more.......just loving the Shadow Guide and as for the Minimalist Wallets......well some lucky people might get rather useful Christmas presents!
              Happy days!
              Thank you Darcy for this very exciting news........

                Those wallets are fabulous - what I wouldn't give for a single O-ring on them though!

                  Can't wait to order one! And yes, I wish there was an O-ring to attach it inside of another TB bag like the previous wallet.

                    Oh yes! An O-ring please........or a little webbing loop for attaching a strap

                      I LOVE the lash straps and the traction loop for the Road Buddy!! Might the traction loop start showing up for other bags too? I'm always unzipping pockets on my Synapse to provide a finger hold for providing traction.

                      The wallets are very very intriguing!! This might be the TB gateway for my DH! (He will deign to use one of my TB bags for a carry-on when we're traveling, but otherwise hasn't upgraded to using any for EDC.). And I might need one for going out (i.e. when I only need to bring "MILK" = money, ID, lipstick, keys. ). And for the gift closet... )

                        I was thinking that an O ring would be great but I think the minimist won out for pants pocket use.

                          Maybe a little webbing loop to enable key strap attachment.

                            brilliant! that would be perfect too. In fact, you just gave me an idea to hack it to make it work. And now I have to buy one. Damn you.

                              You're thinking the same thing I am! I plan to gift several wallets this year with gift cards to local businesses tucked inside of them.

                              Yay! Thank you for sharing your excitement: it's a lot of fun for us!

                              Our samples of the Road Buddy Duffel were in Black only, so that's why most of the in-use photos show that color. I hope everyone takes a look at the studio photos of the color combinations. It's such a good looking bag in colors, especially Navy and Aubergine IMHO.

                                I'm glad the new minimalist wallets have arrived!
                                I'm totally ok with them not hooking/clipping/attaching to anything
