    Any Timing News?

    I am wondering if there is any recent restocking news? Specifically, what is likely to be restocked before the end of the year gift giving season -
    I have a couple of adult kids who are hoping that Mom is Bihn generous this year. Darcy

    Would love to know when the Parental Units will be restocked, myself.

        With the caveat that all of this is subject to change.... here's the current plan:

        This Wednesday 09/23 at 10:00am PT there will be a small and small-ish quantities restock; bags that aren't on the website for one reason or another (order changes, QA'd returns, etc.) A few Luminary 12s, Brain Bags, Monster Trucks and other sought-after items. We'll also be restocking the Everyday Cubelet and the HLT pouches on Wednesday.

        The new Shadow Guide 33 is being sewn right now; next up to begin production is the Shadow Guide 23. After that, we plan to make the Truckasana and the Insigne (Tom's new backpack design that he showed off in the FB group Zoom.) We have a mask storage bag in the works that we plan to sneak in there, and we also want to make a Design Lab batch of Packing Cube Shoulder Bags. Shop Bags, Side Effects, and Travel Trays in the limited edition 200d Halcyon colors too. There will be more that we'll be working on, but for now, that's all I'll share.... once we make headway on those production runs, we'll share what we plan to make next. I hope this helps a bit!

        We're pretty sure that the Parental Unit is going to move to "Design Vault" status AKA retired, but we could make one more production run sometime in the future.

        I'm sad to say it's unlikely we'll be making the Guide's Pack pockets again (I'll update the page to remove the "In Production" notice on the Navy.) We don't plan to retire The Guide's Pack; that said, there are only a handful left, and it may be a while before we make them again.
        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            I think that’s the version of the Truck that’s modified for carrying a laptop?

              It's a Truck with grippy material that's designed to hold a yoga mat!

              And.... what moriond is describing is also in the works. It has the very unique name of "Laptop Truck". (I believe it was haraya that encouraged this design along!)

                This is so exciting! But especially looking forward to packing cube shoulder bags, shop bags, and Side Effects in the limited edition 200d halcyon colors. I’ve got to start saving now. Thanks for the excellent news Darcy. You’ve made my day!

                    Hello. Very excited to learn more about the Shadow Guide. But, for those of us not on FB, are there any details you can share about the Insigne?

                          Personally, I'm looking forward to the new Insigne daypack. Just sent back a luminary cuz I think Insigne will be more in line with my dayback needs.

                            I'm so excited! I've been lusting after the Insigne for a few months now and I'd love to have one! Do you think we'll see it by the end of the year?

                              I go out hiking every weekend, and usually wind up posting a picture of myself (wearing my Luminary 15) in the “Where Did Your TB Bag Go Lately” thread. This isn’t to flex so much as it is to show I literally use the bag all the time, and everywhere.

                              The DLBP isn’t deep enough to stand up on its own, and the rounded bottom shape of the S19 is equally bad at being self-supporting. When I drop my pack down on the trail, I really want something that isn’t going to tip over and dump the contents out.

                              I have been dying to see a Guide’s Edition S19 just so I could have a smaller, daypack-sized backpack with exterior lash points (I carry a collapsible hiking staff that, when collapsed, is still too tall to fit inside the main compartment of the L15).

                              A vertically-oriented daypack, deep enough to stand on its own, with as lash point (or two?!?) for spare or bulky gear?

                              Oh, hell yes.

                              I also just sent back an L15.

                              The L15 is, to date, my favorite TB bag and the one I use the most. It literally goes with me into the office every day and onto the trails on the weekends. When they made the L15 (my favorite bag) in Coyote (my favorite fabric color), I had to buy one. But, as much as I love my L15, I would rather wait for the prospect of a better hiking pack than collect two of the same bags.

                              The Insigne might be the bag I’ve been after all this while. I know TB is a travel-minded company, but I would love to ask them, if just this once, to throw a bone to the hiking crowd and give us a solid daypack (please?).
