    We're back to shipping orders for bags!

    Oooooo! Maybe a Cache/FS - I vote FS - with snaps or clips to keep it anchored in the Truck(s)? Possibly oriented diagonally (side zip access) in the main compartment of the Pickup Truck, and parallel (top zip access) in the Monster Truck.

    This is diagonal in the Pickup Truck:



    The water bottle helps stabilize the laptop (2017 Macbook Air) but I wouldn't carry it like this - I'd put something in between to keep the bottle from clashing against the computer.

    (I clipped a contrasting swivel carabiner to the handle as an anchor point for my key strap - so that I can see at a glance if I've thrown my keys in the Truck - otherwise they are swallowed up in the darkness! )



    The laptop * can * stand on its own in the Pickup Truck, but very gingerly.


    And here is the laptop inserted horizontally in the Original Truck - it would probably work better in the Monster Truck (don't have one of those yet):

    Speaking of home gear, I would love a zip-away water bottle sleeve in the center compartment of the Trucks! (Similar to the one in the Luminary.)

    And/or a way to stash a laptop in that central compartment - a Freudian Slip for the Monster Truck? Maybe one that opens either from the top or the side, so it can be used vertically/horizontally with either the Truck or Monster Truck. I'm always carrying things up and down stairs, and my water bottle/computer tend to be the h

      Is the PIKA going to be restocked soon? I'd imagine it's an ideal bag for the times.

            I really want to thank you for making the masks. I suck at sewing and couldn't even manage sewing a basic mask. I'm thrilled with the masks I was finally able to order. Please keep them in your lineup.

              Noted! I need to upload the photos of the P.I.K.A. in Solaris and Coyote 200d Halcyon, too: we made photo samples of those two colors right before bag production stopped.

              Thank you for the support and I'm glad you're happy with your masks!

              Masks will be available for quite a while, I expect. We are also continuing to receive quite a few requests for donated masks and we want to fulfill as many of those requests as we can for as long as we can.

                  Soonest would be June 1st, but it could be delayed; not sure yet. Are you wondering when we'll get back to making a particular bag design or anything like that? Let me know and I can share what I can.

                      For the bags listed "In production" is that an accurate view of what is going to be made when things resume or would it best to not assume the "in production" hasn't been updated since pre-pandemic, the world has changed, and no idea when/what will be produced at restart?

                        Thanks for making the larger size mask. It fits great.

                        I'm looking forward to my order shipping soon. I'll echo what some others have said. I'm looking forward to the navy leads pocket and left pocket for the Guide's Pack I just ordererd as well as the HTL 1 & 2 as well as the Cubelet in Solaris.

                          Hi Darcy-

                          I had my hopes up for Sitka Halcyon in side effect or shop bag. Any chance this will be coming soon? Is it still happening?

                          Thank you!!!!

                                I want to get an HLT Size 2 (Solaris!), a Cache 12B and a load of organizer pouches. At the moment, most of my list is in stock, except for the HLT which is out of stock in any size or color. Would be interested if there is any ETA on that .
