    Some of the new designs would likely have to be shared as simple drawn sketches (with, you know, the typical extremely long and wordy product descriptions.....) as we can't devote production time right now to even making one sample bag in one color.
    I think this is a great idea! It'd give people something to look forward to, a little brightness in these dark days.

      Cool. We will soon get to work on the first debut

          Does the small fit a MacBook Pro 16 inch? Synapse 19 doesn’t fit because of the shape although the total length is sufficient. Is Trinity more rectangular than synapse?

            That's a wonderful idea, Darcy. I like it very much. The sense of connection, anticipation, and excitement would be very welcome to those of us who've hardly left our homes since we can't remember when! (The university where I teach has gone entirely online, and my dining table is now both classroom and office, courtesy of Zoom!)

              Bumping this for any new news of a debut. Since I sent back by GE Syn30, I'm still in the market for a 30L bag, but waiting to see how Trinity compares to an A30. Also looking at small EDC bags, so also curious to see if other debut items fall in that category. No rush, but the suspense is killing me.

                  I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

                    Just as a thought here too (and forgive me if this was floated elsewhere) If there was some kind of pre-order page with a guess at a dollar amount on it, along with consolidated information on the bag, I know I (along with hopefully a bunch of others) would be willing to throw money in to help keep things going in the mean time here too.

                    Think sorta kickstarter-y, but TB specific, I'm sure many of us have had bad experiences with KS, but obviously trust you guys to do the right thing in design / delivery. Maybe even have a "offset your eventual cost by contributing x" kind of a thing (and I realize that might be a ton of work, depending on how the site / ordering portal is built.. but all the same)

                    Anyhow, very excited to see what comes in this space!! (tbh a WF or tri-star with a luggage pass through might be just about perfect, too #justsaying )

                      Thanks for the suggestion; I can envision something like that being a possibility.

                      We'll be able to share a Trinity update soon... and "debut" a couple of other designs as well.

                        Darcy has already replied, but I wanted to point you to her post earlier in the thread about pricing estimates, and why they can’t make these yet:
                        Originally posted by Darcy View Post

Part of the PPB (Pre-Production Batch) process is materials sourcing and costing: Lisa, Fong, Nik, and Tom working together on finished samples, specific materials and sewing times. We wouldn't be able to begin the PPB process for any new design until we're back to making bags.

                        We were reminded of how important it is to calculate cost within the context of a PPB after we hit the ground running making one of the three mask styles we've made; our initial costs and time estimates were based on some factors that ended up being quite different from our estimates, like the number of crew able to come back to work (some are at home caring for family, and naturally we respect that choice), and the unexpected difficulty of working with a material that we hadn’t previously worked with. We’re getting up to speed making masks now, but still aren’t that close to our original estimate: now we know better to sharpen our pencils and do our PPB first.

                          I was thinking about that too, I bought a few gift certificates that I'll eventually use for the Trinity or similar sized bag.

                            I was so close to pulling the tigger on a Western Flyer, mostly because it’s 18cm depth means it should be a pretty slim bag. The slightly larger dimensions of the Trinity and the note about the three really useful pockets has me really eager to see this bag.

                            I read that it is better suited to flat packing styles; so how much past the 20cm mark will the bag expand out?

                            I ask because the reason I didn’t consider the TriStar in that once packed it gets far too deep to be a carry-on bag on many European airlines. This is my experience with the Synik 30 too (although I can get away with it most of the time).

                            Is there any update on when we might get to see this new bag?

                            Thanks,
                            Paul

                              Yes, I'm also interested in the Trinity, too. Any news?

                                Same! I was originally hoping it would release maybe over summer. Understandably things have been pushed back, but still holding out hope for some more info soon and a later 2020 release. We shall see!
