    Coyote side kick... in the thinner fabric.

    Similar to above: I would also use a small backpack that has a way to carry it as a tote or shoulder bag. Can’t seem to find a company that makes one I like, but I know the TB folks would make an awesomely functional one....

      You read my mind! I've been searching for something easy to carry that maxes out the personal-item-only airline specs. This sounds perfect.

        There are several makers who have backpacks with tote handles. Patagonia makes their Lightweight Travel Tote Pack; Gossamer Gear makes the Vagabond and Mystery Ranch makes a Booty Bag. Some have lousy pack straps, none have the over the shoulder crossbody option, and some are weak on the tote option.

        Mammoth makes a 22 liter of their Neon Shuttle which is a little big and the top is a drawstring affair that doesn’t close tight.

        LL Bean makes both a Flowfold backpack and a very similar Flowfold crossbody tote—- they just need to meld them.

        I have no doubt that TB could pull this off with gold stars.

          Packing Cube Shoulder Bag with some (webbing) attachment points in order to transform to backpack according the way the strap is attached
          Or 3-6L Packing Cube which can transform into an over the shoulder bag and a backpack
          just a Bihnion here

            Navy & Deep Blue / Ultraviolet Halcyon as a frequent color combo across the line. Iberian is retiring… nudge, nudge 😉

              Since Wasabi is retiring, I would love to see Original Halcyon paired with Wasabi Halcyon interior for one last run before Wasabi disappears. Like in the Side Kick and bigger bags too. It is such a splendid color combo IMHO.

                Would love to see more Original/Wasabi and Original/Ultraviolet before the runs of original halcyon and wasabi are done! Especially in the Side Effect and the Synapses. Looking forward to the Coyote TC and also would be very interested in an Ultraviolet TC. Also what about Coyote/Ultraviolet!! I would buy that in basically anything.

                  @swanksteak and @birdlaw - Welcome to the Forums, both of you!

                  Hope that some of your wish list items get made.... I've recently bought several Original/Island items that I was hankering for, when they finally came up - hopefully your colour combos will also get on the production schedule
                  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...

                    Agree on the attachment point suggestions for the PCSB. Last year I was able to hack the PCSB into a fanny pack while traveling in Italy. This year I have the newer version with attachment points on front and top of the bag (vs on both sides). I did some hiking at Mt Ranier recently and found it was much harder to rig the newer style into a fanny pack. It’s the right size to double as a fanny pack but with the current attachment point locations, it’s not as versatile to carry in multiple orientations.

                      Would love to see the MCB/SCB with a removable strap -- a loop on both sides and the strap made with gatekeeper clips. That would be so much nicer if you're packing the MCB inside another bag (say inside a larger personal item on a flight) - easier to store the strap then but still access/use the bag... in fact, I've been thinking about this so much that I'm considering voiding the warranty on mine and doing some bag hacking/surgery myself.... yikes....

                        I did this on mine and I like it so much better!

                          As one of the many Hobonichi users here, I'd love to see an A6-sized Ghost Whale - something just large enough for my book and a few pens.

                          I would also love to see Aether pouches become a regular thing. I've really come to love their wonderful lightness and translucency.

                            I would like a wider strap for my sidekick. I have a newer one with the gatekeeper attachments, and I’m ok with the attachment method but I’d prefer the Tom Bihn standard strap width.

                              DLBP in Halcyon or maybe in 210 Ballistic (is that possible?) with a bright orange or yellow interior!

                                I would love to see the return of the previous cache design. I understand the flexibility of the current iteration with the zipper, but something just felt better about the flaps to me. Does anyone else feel this way?
