    I would like removable shoulder straps on the Cafe bags.

      A quick google search says Poron has insulating properties so a fabric on inventory exists (like in the handles as padding of Shop Bags, Trucks, and others)

      My wish would be an insulated shop bag. Through the pandemic I have bought and used some of the cheap insulated ones from the food coop. I wish for TB quality of an insulated bag. Not asking to keep a ice cube frozen in the desert for a week, just something that holds temp within 5 degrees for a half to full hour. Alternately enough insulation that temperature in the bag is moderated from exterior when used for picnics. Fingers crossed their is something for picnic season 2021. Perhaps if Nik worked on it, it would be called "The PicNik Truck"

        I like the suggestion. Such an insulated bag would be an instant purchase - probably a few, especially if in a couple of sizes. Agreed need would only be for limited insulation for picnics or a delayed return from a shopping trip.

            I'd like an A6 sized Ghost Whale, it would be perfect for things like Field Notes notebooks and a pen or two, my passport, and other similar items. I know there are other things which hold these, but something more akin to the size/shape of my daily carry notebooks would be lovely!

              As I’m not travelling far at the moment I’m finding myself wanting a small sling kind of bag. I’d love to see a Tom Bihn take on a sling/Fanny pack.

                Darcy has said that there is some sort of sling bag in the works, but no details or timing has been announced

                  I would like the Luminaries in the three exterior halcyons (original, black, taiga.) Especially the Luminary 12.

                    I know structurally it wouldn’t stand up, which is probably why its only in 525 or 630 fabric, but an Icon in halcyon is definitely on my wishlist. I tried the black icon with rainbow zips and it just wasn’t pliable enough like halcyon is. Not picky about color, (tho ultraviolet would rock!) just maybe black halcyon exterior like how there is usually at least one color way of all halcyon for the cafe bags.

                      I would still like to see a bag that works for an in-seat travel bag. The travel cubelet, side effect, and HLT1 are so close -- but not quite perfect.

                      For me, it would be a thoughtful way to hold:
                      - kindle (all sizes!) or ipad mini
                      - phone
                      - earphones or buds
                      - pen
                      - small flashlight
                      - passport
                      - medication
                      - lip balm

                        How is the SideKick not the answer to this? It's exactly what I use mine for. It's my in-flight/seat bag that carries all of the above several small snacks. Sometimes I'll bring my Co-Pilot instead if I want a touch more space and not be bothered with hand carrying a water bottle.

                          Me too. If I also need to carry a larger item or two (like a jacket) I have used my Side Kick inside a Pop Tote.

                            Besides the Side Kick as mentioned, the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag and Daylight Briefcase are used for this too.
                            The change previously from side strap attachments to offset front/back attachments on several bags made it more awkward to use swivel carabiners on some bags, but note that the Design Lab editions of the PCSB have the end attachments again.

                              Sidekick for me meets such requirements.

                                Only one color MCB left in stock right now, so I’m repeating my wish to see more Café bags with Dawn lining. I’d buy Ursa/Dawn in a heartbeat (although Black/Dawn and Deep Blue/Dawn would be nice too).
