    This looks like a wonderful bag ! The only thing holding me back is the lack of any external storage or attachement options.
    For eg having two strap holders on the bottom to fix two lash straps would greatly extend the versatility of th LGD by allowing to attach an umbrella, tripod or jacket.

      I would *SO* love to perform a very detailed fishing use case and contribute to the FAQ!

        I like the ability to add (removable) external straps but I'm not a fan of them being on the bottom. Anything you attach there is likely to get scuffed or dirty when you set it down, plus the bag won't stand up anymore in many cases.

          I'm sure this was discussed somewhere, but I can't find the answer: is this pre-order for LGD the only time we can buy this bag or will it be available again in the future?

          I wasn't planning to buy it since it's way too big for me to use as a waist pack, but now I'm thinking this may be a good personal item bag for when I start flying again for personal trips. But I'm not completely sure of that and I'm also not sure I love any of the color combinations.

            Good question. I do expect we'll offer additional production runs of the LGD: it's already very popular. That said, the color choices are likely to be narrowed down in the future. Hope that helps.

              Noted and noted. With so many color options you'd think I'd find one that I like, but since I'd be using this mainly for urban traveling I want a neutral one. And the neutrals just aren't speaking to me.

              Plus I'm just not sure if it would work for me- looking forward to seeing more reviews when people get their pre-orders.

                So I'm probably the only one crazy enough to go this far with it, but I love seapine and hated the red stripe. My (hopeful/potential) solution is to get some blue fabric dye and see if I can make the red stripe purple instead, sort of like the seapine icon color combo.

                Obviously I'll test it on a sample or scrap of fabric first, but I can't imagine it would be an involved project to recolor that little stripe. Anyways, I mention it in case this opens up some options for you too.

                  The LGD FAQ is finally up on the blog!

                  That said, we see it as a work in progress. We're using ours so much (everyday + hiking + dog walks) that we've got big long lists of questions/answers and photos + videos to shoot to add over the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

                    Interesting about possibly making a larger version of the bag. The reason I didn't order one this go-around was that I was afraid it wouldn't be sized right for what I'd want to do with it.

                    If the larger LGD ends up being made, please call it "Le Plus Grande Derrière!"

                      I would love to see a version of the LGD transformed the way the Original Side Effect became the present Side Effect.

                      A sort of bigger Side Kick, a deeper Daylight Briefcase, or a more organized Packing Cube Shoulder Bag (Original and Design Lab Edition, side attachments for the Shoulder Strap).

                      It would make a perfect note taking while reading bag.

                      Is the LGD is big enough to carry an HTL 2?
