    I have three PIKA’s. One from the original batch and two from the most recent batch with the double swivel carabiners. My preference for the attachment points, are the ones on my original PIKA. I’m not that fond of the carabiner attachment points.....although you can hang a facemask on the carabiner. As for the soft spacer mesh as the interior lining....... I think that would work if there was a closure for that pocket that wouldn’t interfere with some of the larger phones.

    There's perhaps some hope for the return of the PIKA.... if you guys would be cool with the interior being layers of spacer-mesh (to create a soft padded interior) instead of the original "one-way" fabric interior. Thoughts?

    I actually thought it would be great for that too and tried to do just that for my biweekly grocery trip 2 days ago. Sadly the Pika didn't work for me for that purpose. It couldn't comfortably handle my COVID necessities:

    Car keys (a car fob and 1 key)
    Phone
    COW wallet (3 cards + ID)
    Hand sanitizer (tiny bottle)

    It just grew too bloated to be functional. I honestly never use mine because these are the same items I carry COVID or not. I could have put my car key on my pocket, but that kind of defeats the purpose. Why not just put all of those things in my pockets and forgo the Pika.

    Oh no! I did the same dithering on the black one. I hope there will be another run, maybe with a pre-order?

    Me too! I dithered too long on a black one, then they were gone. So I saved it in my wish list and signed up to be notified when they’re back in stock. Then the “in production” list dwindled. And now retired! Please, one more production run!

    PIKA discontinued?

    Bummed to see that the PIKA is likely discontinued. I had been waiting for the PIKA to arrive in Solar color ever since it was announced as a new color. It was supposed to be made during a batch before the end of the year. I check regularly to see what's coming. I watched as the "in production" colors went from five colors to two, and now it says it's a retired design.

    Ah, 2020 has been a year!
