    Nik's working on two (potential) sizes of a sling bag; the larger can fit a 13" laptop. Tom has been talking about bringing The Buzz back, but that's probably a bit farther out than Nik's sling bags because Tom is finishing up a few other designs right now.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

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

      Thank you so much for the info, Darcy! That's exciting news!! I've been looking for a sling bag that fits my needs without the tactical look. Looking forward to seeing whatever designs Nik and Tom decide to go with!

        Luminary-esque bag that can fit a 15" Macbook Pro in its padded laptop section. Seriously!

        I had to pick up a North Face bag because it was the only option out even remotely close and my daily carry has been ever so sad since.

          Wishing for: shoulder/messenger bag that fits a MCB FS but is zip top! I'm not one for huge flaps but I LOVE my FS. (also still wishing for a padded eyeglass case and halcyon ghost whale pouches) Plus a slender/rectangular version of the travel tray would be super cool. Slender as in would fit well in messenger style bags a bit easier but would still pop up. I love using my TT in flights

            Wishing for: the Guide's Editions of the Synapse 25 and the Synik (both Syniks??). Early 2020 cannot come soon enough! I wonder if a shadow GE S25 could ever happen if they bring back the shadow guide, that would be incredible!

              A packing cube sized about 4" x 2.5" x 12". Unless I am missing one in TB size, this would be about 1/3 an A30 cube and fit for a shirt, pair socks, underwear or as a cube within a cube for more compression.

              A packing cube the size of an inside out 3DOC. Love the 3DOC, lots of places the 3DOC fits in the TB bags, but 3DOC is heavier than a packing cube version with lighter material and zippers.. The 3DOC misses a clamshell opening for ability to pack in desired order and then compress to close versus squeezing bulky items in only to have them decompress and 3DOC be prematurely full.

                Cubelet with clear panels like the 3DCOC

                    I love both these ideas. I vote for a zipper on the SCB. I'd use it more if it had one.

                    I also love the idea of a squarish TT. Think it would work better my my luggage too. I also wonder if there's a way to give the sides more optional "structure" so thing could be "stood up" in the TT.

                      Totally agree about a zipper on the Cafe bags. That's what keeps me from buying one. I'm too klutzy to risk having an open bag haha.

                        I prefer either a zipper or a flap. I think both at once is annoying, because it makes it so difficult to access the content of a bag while wearing it. I feel very secure carrying my valuables in my Café bags despite the open top when the flap is closed. When I’m somewhere crowded I simply rotate my bags to the front (I do that with all crossbody bags) and put my arm on top.

                          Wish: return the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag attachment points back to their original per this petition

                            The EC tube cube S and XS are what I have. I originally got their ultralight version but the zipper only went 2/3 clamshell whereas the design with '300d bluesign fabric' is full clamshell opening.

                            In the XS (about the size of a 3DOC) I just fit a XL t-shirt, wool socks, and underwear and compressed it down to 1.93 liters external. The ability to push down the small area while simultaneously closing the zippers allows great compression. Excepting pants and shoes, 5 changes clothes could fit in 9.5 liters. The large cubes allow compression, just not near the same as a mini cube. Unintended feature when I got them.

                            My wish for TB version is for TB quality, the smaller TB packing cube zippers, sized to 3DOC external dimensions to fit the TB tetris matrix, and consistent style.

                            The longer tube cube S has been my spare set of clothes holder. Would work well at bottom of EDC for that purpose too. Within another packing cube would act as a second compression like cube.

                              I love that! The TB tetris matrix!

                                Turquoise 525? Either the same shade as the old Turquoise Cordura, or a slightly moodier color (with some grey, but still on the blue side of the blue/green mix). Somewhere in the palette of the underside of a glacier.
