    No size estimate yet.

    Boil Boil Bag of Bihn
    spy bag of bowling pin
    Blue skies wrent with rain
    color born of weather pain
    Strap secure yet hides in sight
    Behold the vessel of Tom Bihn's mite!


    Now in the next 5 years, I bet we can look at a bag and say "SEE!?!"

    hehehe :P
    That's brilliant... Nostradamus had nothing on you, my friend.

    It's difficult to predict exactly when the new designs will be available - I should probably start saying "sometime in the future."

    It's still in the works, but don't expect anything else new to come out before Christmas. I'd say....April 2010!

    Ultrasuede Bags?

    Hi Darcy,

    Any update on an Ultrasuede bag? Will the LCB be having an Ultrasuede version available soon? Perhaps in time for Christmas?

    It remains to be seen whether the Cafe bag will be the first Ultrasuede bag we make. I'd say...keep an eye out in July/August!

    The LCB will be a Redux... Eventually.

    Funny, I was debating holding off on a Large Cafe Bag purchase for the Ultrasuede edition, then it hit me like a thunderbolt: I can own more than one Large Cafe Bag! So off my order went.

    No Cafe bags are available in Ultrasuede at this time, and I'm not sure when they will be: Tom is working on a different bag to be our first Ultrasuede bag, but details on that aren't available yet.

    Tnx and a follow-up question

    Thank you Darcy. I do have an additional question: Is the current Cocoa/Wasabi bag (offered via the website) a Cordura bag or an Ultrasuede bag? I suspect the answer is Cordura, but I want to confirm that as I am gearing up my next purchase and read that the Ultrasuede will be in Cocoa. If it is not the Ultrasuede, when will Ultrasuede be available (ballpark, not specifically)?

    No, it's not the same. The Cafe Bag Ultrasuede is designed more for exterior use and while it still has that amazing Ultrasuede feel, it's more substantial.
