    Is there any realistic chance of the Shadow Guide making a re-appearance? Trying to decide if I should go all in on a second hand one that is being sold.. even if the Shadow Guide wont be produced again for a year or years I don't mind waiting, but I would hate to miss the opportunity and never be able to get my hands on what seems to be the perfect bag to me.

      Your best bet to get an idea if it's in a production window is to contact Customer Service directly.
      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...

        Organizer Pouch color selection option.

        I understand the colors and materials come from other bag's waste stream, some improved system of color selection be made available. The ghost whale pouch at a lower price point has color selection option in purchase process so I don't believe it is a cost issue. I have used the "ask CS to pick colors". I feel like I am leaning on CS too much after placing my order to ask what colors I got even with the order comment of "3 choices and ones you don't want".

        I guess I could get particular and ask "I want a sCOP in 525 ballistic coyote and if you don't have it, substitute with 1050 ballistic coyote, and if neither available, then delete item from order"

        If not a full color order selection process like the ghost whale pouches, maybe a weekly/monthly picture of the OP pile/bin to see what available or a "Top 5 colors we have now" to help with probability of getting a color I would like.

          @G42 is right: the quickest answer is from our stellar crew (Kat, Cody, Matthew, Mike) but I happened to see this, so I'll answer as well.

          It's entirely possible we will make another production run of the Shadow Guide. It could happen this year, but is more likely to happen early-mid next year. Because our production capacity is limited, we try to remain open/nimble to responding to various changes and demands, so that's why I can't offer a for-sure. If you don't mind waiting that long, I'd say wait.
          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

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

            Thanks @G42 and Darcy for the responses. I don't mind waiting and can make do with my assortment of other TB bags. Now I've got at least one exciting thing to look forward too next year!

              I would love to get a zippable glasses case which would attach to the o-rings. That way I can keep my sunglasses easily accessible without having to dig through my bag....

                Does the Small Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch not work for you?

                  Is that soft enough on the inside to protect the lenses, but hard enough on the outside to keep it safe from impacts? That's part of why I am interested in something designed specifically for glasses...

                    Ahh!...I think it’s soft enough on the inside, but I think you’re right, that it probably wouldn’t withstand impact. (I keep one clipped on the outside of my bag, so it’s handy and it won’t get crushed.)

                      Cordura Brain Bag. Any chance of that?

                        I think about padded pouches, but the medium size is quite big (but the other ones are too small...)
                        or a ghost whale pouch (as said) with tissue inside to minimize impact



                        Edit (because I don't like double posts very much):

                        I wish for:
                        - 5 to 10L mini totable-packback (I mean bag which can be held in tote way and backpack way)
                        - Guide Edition accessories (to match with GES25, I already buy almost every items with coyote buckles or coyote webbing... even Skookum Dog accessories... which I love btw)

                          TB has mostly moved away from Cordura - your best chance is on the secondary market

                            I would LOVE to see a Guides Edition Smart Alec.

                              A second call for the tote/backpack that is about 12L.

                                Thanks for the welcome.

                                I don't know why, but I'm not a fan of the ballistic nylon look. I think it reminds me of some kinds of luggage or gym bags I used to see — tough, but maybe not wearing in the way cordura looks and feels when worn in. I'm only judging by sight, though. I've never owned a bag made of that material.
