    Before original halcyon is retired, I would love to see a limited edition of a couple items. First, a travel tray. I love my 400d halcyon/dyneema travel trays. They are stiffer and stand up better than my 200d ones. Travel trays are one of my most used TB item. They are all over the house holding everything from TV remotes to toiletries to Lego pieces.

    Also, would like another run of the original halcyon PCSB. I am looking forward to the PCSB being made in the new ballistic colors and am hoping original halcyon will be included. Again, the 400d is superior to the 200d in using the PCSB as a purse because it is thicker and holds its shape better.

    Oh, yes, one last wish. Please bring back Solar. Everything is easy to find in a Solar-lined bag. So sad it’s retired.
    I second all of this! (Plus I'd like a return of the Black Halcyon PCSB because I foolishly traded mine, thinking I could buy a replacement for it.)
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

        A lanyard/ID card holder. Sort of like a COW crossed with the passport holder. I have a few IDs I need to wear at work, and I haven't found a good solution yet that will let me display at least one at a time and have two-to-three other cards available when needed.
        I read this, and was wondering why you couldn't just put a COW (or COP) on a lanyard. I use the system described for my laundry cards - not necessarily needs to be clear to show anyone, but clear so I remember what's in it. (More than one card, because always good to have a backup in case one fails to read, but that's a whole different issue.)

        The only downside I can see to doing so is that without the second attachment point, during movement it may flip to hide the ID instead of showing it through the clear side.

          Waves at @Just,

          The Clear Organizer Wallet, besides being too small for some of the ID badges, doesn’t have a ring or Snaphook to connect at both top corners. But you can detach the lanyard from the Passport Pouch and clip it to some of the really shoddy quality conference badges I’ve been given. Some of them are designed to double as pin-ons, and you can run the pin through the webbing loop at the top of the Passport Pouch and just let the badge sit on top of the cloth front of the pouch.

          Another possible hack @Passagare could try in the meantime is to use the new Snaphook/Split-Ring Key Straps:

          (Those were really buried and hard to find! The product page hasn’t been updated to mention them, either, which is why I included a picture of my Iberian 8” keystrap with split ring holding a Preon flashlight attached to an Olive Cubelet). The longer ones can be hooked together.

            a PCBP for the A30 that is closer in form to the WF/TriStar or A45 PCBP (I've tried so hard to like my A30 PCBP, and I just don't. The extra pouch part is just awkward and seems unnecessary, so it just sits around not being used. )

            A way to add-on an o-ring (either to a non-TB bag or to a TB bag where there isn't one)

            A bigger o-ring to clip a million little things to (I have some old Double Carabiners, but they are less than ideal, which is probably why TB doesn't sell them anymore?)

              While I could string a few key straps together to make a lanyard, it's the ID holder I need more help with TB providing. It seems like such low-hanging-fruit for a new product that might be pretty popular.

                I’d probably buy one!

                  Ditto on the ID holder desire.

                    I would buy an ID holder on a lanyard. It's also the type of product I could see me buying as a gift for my work teams, as the ID holders we are issued with are useless and always breaking - and to introduce them too to Tom Bihn.

                      Putting a clear urethane pocket on one side of the Passport Pouch would also accommodate awkward conference badges

                        In the past when I've bought a few Key Straps at a time, they've come clipped onto something which could be described as a bigger o-ring. It's a stiff black plastic circle maybe 2" across. I use them to store extra Key Straps on. So if that describes what you're looking for, it exists!
                        I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

                          Where was this when I bought 5 key straps, 2 utility straps and 2 handle loops in 1 order? Lol [emoji23]

                            Maybe they were out right then? Or maybe they don't have them anymore.

                              This was May 2016, so... Possible they didn't have them yet or they were out.
                              Also I had several pouches in that order, maybe they came inside a pouch.... Can't remember, but I keep things like tags and hanging bits, so I know I didn't get what you're talking about [emoji16]

                                Another wish here, but would love to see the Large Zip Top Shop bag in Black Halcyon (grey grid). I would buy it in a heartbeat...and it's the most masculine Halcyon IMO. Bonus points if it came in before the price increase!
