    I would like to see a somewhat larger DLBP (DLBP-19?) with heftier fabric, in coyote or burnt orange. I know this would negate a lot of the whole point of the DLBP in the first place, so maybe it could be a totally different pack with heftier straps, etc. I just like the look of the DLBP. It's a fantastic-looking pack and I'd use a larger one even more than the current one.

    This wish is more of a daydream... I'm looking at my new grass SSB and thinking how well it handles bright colors. It'd be so cute in alphaviolet.

    Yes!!! I adore my TC and it's my EDC but really need it slightly larger, and I wouldn't mind a few more interior pockets... just like the Side Kick but in a vertical format. Btw, an interior zip might be nice for loose change, etc. I tried the SK for a while and liked the size but hated the horizontal orientation. I don't always zip my bags and things were always falling out of the SK, but not so with the TC due to the bottom heavy, vertical layout. IMO, a vertical orientation also makes a more streamlined carry.

    I considered switching to the SCB but it's too large and I'd hate the flap. Yes, I'm a bit like Goldilocks.

    Do you not like the Side Kick?
    I had a Side Kick- I prefer 1) the vertical orientation of the TC and 2) the simple inside of the TC- the Side Kick had too many pockets/layers and I was forever looking for things. It was about the size I'm thinking though.

    Do you not like the Side Kick? A Travel Cubelet sits nicely inside of it next to an 8oz water bottle and a thin pair of gloves (the hat and neck warmer are already in the TC). Plus, it zips closed unlike a Small Cafe Bag.

    I would like to see a mini zip top shopping bag- something about 2/3 or 3/4 of the dimensions of the small bag. Something a little more narrow and just a bit smaller, so it could also act as a purse like object or a lunchbag (water bottle in one pocket, napkin and cutlery in the other).

    Maybe a nominal price that could follow the donation crane model. (fabric diverted from waste stream, donation to good cause, and get to see all the colors with possibly lower product returns. Win-win-win I think) And a fabric color card could be a collectible itself.
    Yes!!! The colors look much better in person. I spend half my time rethinking color choices & combinations.

    I love my Daylight Briefcase and how well my Microsoft Surface Pro fits in the cache inside the Daylight Briefcase. Sometimes though I just want to take the Cache and feel it is a bit plain. A Halcyon sleeve that fits the cache snugly with nothing more than a zip closure and attachments for a shoulder strap would be the ultimate accessory for the cache :-)

    I did. But I just thought I'd put out a request everywhere [emoji12][emoji12][emoji12][emoji12]

    Thanks. Yeah I realised I needed this when trying to pack an A30. Previously I used three 3DOC and they fit perfectly in the A45 end pocket. But they don’t quite fit in the A30.

    Not thought of the clear quarter cube but yes that sort of size would be good I guess.

Alternatively having stuff sacks with a better closing method instead of the draw string that leaves a huge opening still. Zipped or snap button closure would be good I think.

    Do you mean something like the Clear Quarter Packing Cube but with one compartment not two? A couple of people here have mentioned REI mini packing cubes that are about that size but I believe you live outside of the US so that might not be of any use to you.

    Edited to add: the discontinued NFTD or Mini Yeoman cubes might be a useful size to you if you come across them in the second-hand market
