    Well, according to Darcy, not enough people as compared to the other sizes. So we need more people to ask for them!

    I didn't think I wanted a built-in laptop section until I started using my S22. "I have a Cache, why would I need a laptop compartment?" I said. But I do really like how the built-in compartment keeps the laptop right up against the back of the bag. So now I want a Smart Alec with a laptop compartment (and I want the laptop compartment's top opening to be just a smidgen wider than the one on the S22).

    A picture to go along with this reply to @KathyH:

    This one of @bchaplin’s pictures from the Business cards and Tom Bihn luggage tags thread. That discussion has other pictures of the Pocket Pouch next to the Luggage Tag (which can be tethered to an O-ring, or even looped about your wrist, if you were using it to hold, say, a hotel room card).

    You can also be imaginative about your tethering solutions, depending on the bag/accessory. Earlier in this thread, I crafted an answer to @aedifica,about setting up a Night Flight Travel Duffel for easy Smart travel card access (#320 04-20-2019). Turns out that I was mistaken in my assumption — I thought she wanted to use the pseudo pocket where the grab handles for pulling the bag out are located, so she wouldn’t even have to unzip anything to access her card — but she just wanted an O-ring paced in the side zippered pocket, and that was also covered by my pics (even easier, since a small double Organizer Pouch fits into zippered pocket with a tether point for a smart card just positioned for the zippered opening, and you don’t even have worry about making this an exact fit to the pseudo-pocket behind it to get easy access use and tether an accessory that can hold a transit card safely.) So there are lots of ways to craft specific solutions to your bags.

    The possible issue with the Clear Organizer Wallet is that the label hangs down a bit from the top seam — not an issue for a transit card, but a small blockage for an ID card. You’d be better off just dedicating another Nik’s Wallet in that case. If you only need the transit card to have proximity, and not actually pass through a device, it should work OK from the pocket.

    Or what about a Clear Organizer Wallet? I use my COW for my Metro card - I can see at a glance that it's in there, and there are separators to hold a second or third card. I have mine on a long key strap.

    More Halycon colors available. The material is great for a wallet since it has a little more give.

    A Halcyon Cubelet! I'm pretty sure someone has wished for this before. I use a Halcyon all fabric 3DOC to keep a few things together for work. These things would all fit in a Cubelet, but for this particular use I prefer the squishability of the Halcyon fabric. A squishable 200d Halcyon Cubelet would be great.

    Would a Pocket Pouch work? I use one for my train/bus pass and parking garage access card so they're separate from my wallet and easier to access when needed.

    I’m really enjoying my Niks wallet, but when travelling I usually go back to a little wallet I was using before. It has three vertical card slots on the front, and a zippered pocket for coins on the back. It’s more useful to me in Europe where I’m using cash and not cards, but the materials annoy me and I would definitely prefer a TB version.
