    Lobby for pre-order Smart Alec run

    I have a black grid halcyon backpack with Island interior (not for sale, sorry!). It’s amazing, it’s a jack of all trades kinda bag. When I first came to TB I got an s25 and that was the perfect bag for me for years. But, as I got more into TB accessories, pouches, and cubes I realized my travel style had changed and I organized by those rather than by using the s25’s built in storage. When I went to Montreal and realized I only had put things in the large interior and the front lower pocket, I knew that a switch to a more cavernous bag was needed. Luckily I found someone to swap my s25 for their smart alec. I do, however, miss a smaller backpack on occasions. The smart alec is not so great (for me anyways) for short weekend trips. May be looking at a DLBP, in the future for that.

      I've changed my mind about the 525 ballistic, I have got used to the sheen of my DLBP, so am putting my order in for an all ballistic smart Alec please
      All black would be a great travel bag.....

        Someone bought a black SA with Solar interior on FB group before I even saw the post. [emoji24][emoji24][emoji24][emoji24][emoji24] Can TB just make a run of SA to end my misery?!?!?

          I’m in for a few of these beauties. Seems like such a shame they retired it when it’s so loved.

              We've been reading your posts/feedback here and I'm just now getting a chance to respond!

              I updated the Smart Alec page so that anyone who is interested can sign up to be notified via email if we ever decide to make another production run of Smart Alecs. That said, if we did choose to make another production run, it wouldn't be anywhere near very soon at all because our production schedule is solidly booked for the next while.
              Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                      That’s nice that it’s under consideration. I’d guess that it wouldn’t be at the old price of $190 but something closer to all the new updated bag prices?

                              Seriously? $305? Come on.... TB pls plan a production run already. Every SA on FB or ebay gets sold, and the enthusiasm has been over-zealous in the recent ebay bidding. (grumble grumble....more mutterings under my breath)

                                Actually I thought that was a very good price for a Smart Alec in excellent condition and with both matching modular pockets. It is only $35 more than what it cost originally. After I bought my original halcyon SA, I had to wait quite a while before TB did their last batch of modular pockets in that fabric. In fact, there were several of us who were holding their breath that we would ever get the matching pockets.

                                I missed the announcement, so can you tell us when TB said they are doing another round of Smart Alecs? I’ve read that we can sign up in case they decide to make them in the future but didn’t know it is a sure thing. I would like to get one in Nordic before that fabric is discontinued.
