    Me too! I’ve recently been looking for a lunch bag and there’s not a lot out there with the same high quality we’re used to from TB. I’d need it to be pretty waterproof on the inside though because I like to carry wet foods for lunch.

    Maybe one day we could get a dark cocoa/chocolate brown 400d halcyon for exteriors or a very deep dark green... I get that black is the most commonly picked colour for exterior, but some other very dark professional looking colours would be nice...

    I really like the 400d halcyon exterior... and of all the items I have in it, only one is the Black with dark grid lines

    The black halcyon, not the original? Yeah I like that one, especially in my Pilot, but what I'd really like is to replace Nordic with a non-blue color. I know most people love blue but it's just never been my favorite!

    While I definitely support a Tom Bihn backpack tote/totepack that's all the trend, those are but a pale shadow of what I really want - a convertible messenger/crossbody bag with backpack straps. There are a lot of totepacks out there (none Tom Bihn perfection, of course, but they're ubiquitous at this point), but virtually none have even an attachment point for a crossbody strap, and are either uselessly thin, or shapelessly massive (If I wanted that, I'd just lug my beautiful Smart Alec everywhere - perfect bag, not for this. There are some convertible briefcases/backpacks (I'm based in Colorado, so I see Topo Designs a fair bit), the styling's not me (personal taste), and in such cases, the backpack straps are usually difficult/unweildy to switch between (the thought of having to undo gatekeepers every time I want to switch between backpack and briefcase makes me cringe). Really, I just want my absolutely beloved Pilot with tuckaway backpack straps, to the point that I've started looking into some DIY projects to get my One True Bag, before remembering I cannot sew.

    Tom Bihn does Totes *well*, but my travel issue has always been the need for a crossbody strap to attach to them, and now that I've got an urban commute with a lot of bus, walking, and heavy school gear, the ability to swap between backpack when I was running between classes (my back isn't loving me wearing crossbody constantly these days) and crossbody when I was in crowds and wanted better security would be a *dream*. Something like a miniaturized Western Flyer, with either Lovely Pilot or Sleek Luminary styling. (The Stowaway was *CLEVER*, but I missed it, and at the time my laptop was beyond too big for it. I didn't love the styling of it in backpack mode, but the concept of 'easily convertible edc backpack/crossbody that zips all the way shut' and it's looks when zipped shut were exactly what I wanted. I can only hope that the Stowaway Successor hits all my buttons (sleek in both backpack and crossbody/briefcase form, fits an ipad 12.9 pro sized chromebook, can fit some letter sized file folders/notebook (maybe even a thin binder), and various other bits and bobs. And comes in Nebulous Grey/Island Halcyon)

    TL; DR Stowaway Successor that has Luminary Sleek Styling and/or a Pilot with tuckaway straps. (And to finally have both budget and a trip worthy of pulling the trigger on an A30....)

The black halcyon has a nice combination of professional looking and being lightweight.

    I know the Truck is better in almost every conceivable way, but there’s a part of me that wants to try out a 525d Movable Feast.

    Padded eyeglass case (maybe something like the small ghost whale pouch) but with padded/soft fabric lining

    Zip Top Shop Bags in multi-colour ways - perhaps end panels in different colour to the main body. Just for fun!

    Yes! for Guide Pack (and its accessories) + new shoulder strap version on it!

    Pilots are coming in 525, luckily without the coyote interior lining so my credit card might be safe.
