      Here's a few photos I just took of my LGD, showing off its main compartment and what it can fit!

      Note the volume of the front buckle pocket: it's got quite the depth. It's my favorite pocket so far when the bag is worn waist-pack or cross-body with a shoulder strap.

      We'll be finishing up the pages for the 5/6 pre-order around the end of this week, so more photos (and even quick videos!) will be added soon.

      QUESTION FOR YOU! Has it been kinda annoying to see the content added to the 5/6 pre-order pages as we built them, since it wasn’t all presented at once, or did you appreciate getting details and photos as we were able to share them?

      Here's why we're asking: it usually takes us several weeks to write product descriptions, take photos, measure and gather specifications. In the past, that process has been largely behind the scenes: the upcoming product pages are hidden, so folks can’t see information as we add it. This time around we decided to leave the pages up (prior to officially announcing the pre-order) to share more of the process and photos, specs, and descriptions as they become available. One added benefit is that you ask us for more photos/content, and assuming we're able to fit those requests in to the timeline and workload, that makes the creative work we're doing all the more fun.

      Both ways work equally well for us, so we're wondering: which works best for you?
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

      Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

        Definitely getting the details/photos as you're able to share them is my preference!

        Helps for planning and is also just plain more fun

          I'm good with either way, myself. For me the priority on information is size/dimensions, features, and then price/pictures are probably tied. But I personally don't really have a preference on whether that comes out over time or all at once.

            I appreciate seeing the pics and whatever info is available as it is available. It helps to build the anticipation!

              I vote for getting photos as available. Helps with planning and builds hype as others have said. Its fun!
              Great work on the sling.

                +many on the 'as available' - it gives more time to mull things over, enjoy the anticipation, provide questions/feedback that might help, and as others have said - it just seems like more fun this way
                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...

                  Darcy thanks so much for the additional photos. As someone who takes a very long time to come to a decision, I like it either way. With photos posted as they come, I get information earlier than I would otherwise, but with info and photos all posted together, I get the complete picture right away. You see? I said I had trouble making decisions 😂

                  One thing that has me VERY intrigued about your new pics is the size of those front pockets. At first I thought I would stash an Everyday/Travel Cubelet inside the bag but now I am wondering if I would use those front pockets instead of the E/TC. The only thing about this bag that makes me nervous is the lone interior pocket (I am a hardcore PU-lover after all) but the large external pockets are interesting!

                  Can’t wait to see it in person.

                    Dang, it's a monster! Stated volume of side kick is 3 L and stated volume of LGB is 8 L, so Darcy came pretty close. Highly unlikely I would wear this as either a fanny pack or a sling. Even as a shoulder bag, I would not be crazy about a 6 inch deep box on my hip. The compression straps should come in handy. FYI, for comparison:
                    Bag Dimensions NominalVolume StatedVolume Weight
                    LGB 12.6" (w) x 8.2" (h) x 6.2" (d) 10.49 L 8 L 15.2 oz
                    SCB 8.3" (w) x 10.6" (h) x 3" (d) 4.32 L 6 L 11.9 oz
                    MCB 10.6" (w) x 12.2" (h) x 3" (d) 6.35 L 8 L 14.5 oz
                    Co-Pilot 11.8" (w) x 10" (h) x 4.9" (d) 9.47 L 10 L 21.9 oz

                      The shape/dimensions are actually a plus for me.. I prefer horizontal bags more than vertical (because stuff inevitably settles) and deeper bags (front to back) can hold a bigger variety of stuff.

                      I suppose that's why I have 5 Makers Bags, lol.

                        Agreed - for me it'd likely be the perfect day bag for daily carry and tourist carry ...

                        For EDC, it's big enough to hold sunglasses in a case, a light coat, a water bottle, tablet & electronic doo-dads, and plenty of other stuff assuming you're not carrying a laptop (larger than 13"?)

                        For tourist carry, it's the perfect size for keep in front of you with all the things you need for a day of sightseeing (including a DSLR!) and enough room for a few things you might buy on the way.

                        All-in-all, from the pictures, it seems to be perfect sized for me for what I'd use it for!

                          Darcy, the write-up portion for the LGD says 4 O-rings in the main compartment and 1 in each of the pockets. The Specs box says 4 O-rings total, 2 in the main comp, 1 in each pocket. Is the write-up number correct, with 6 total O-rings?

                            Nice catch, Wanderlust77! It is 6 total O-rings: 4 in the main compartment and 1 in each front pocket. The page is updated now too

                                If you believe both sets of specs, it should even be big enough to fit a Tenba BYOB 10 if you want to give that DSLR and a spare lens some extra padding...
