    while other companies make waist packs to hold your camera, i think this is a wonderful opportunity for tom to design a bag just for this purpose!

    I've tried smaller cameras, but I just don't want to use anything but my 20D. Maybe I need to ask the factory to make me a camera holster.

    We should be posting pictures of the new Sand fabric tomorrow...
    wow! and we appreciate all that you do, darcy!!

    Darcy answers the phone and email.

    She needs to make sure the site is up and running with the latest update software or content wise or fix it when slashdot users overwhelm it.

    She updates the blog, twitter, answers questions on the forum and greets visitors at the shop/ factory visits.

    She models many of the products so that women can have an idea how a product will fit on them. Thanks Darcy, we love that!

    Billing to customer has to be set up.

    Shipping costs, payroll, health insurance and taxes have to be paid...

    Suppliers need to be contacted for new products and paid for the ones already in use.

    And there are meetings, in house to talk about a new design then tweak it or
    with the other tenants/owners of the building when, for example, the elevator is down and it needs either a quick checkup or a month long repair that will block access to all retail shops in the building.

    Yeah, Darcy is a busy woman.

    "Sorry: someone snagged it before I could even take a picture of it! Stay tuned for more fabric news, though... "

    You know, you should keep a digital camera behind the desk in the store / showroom in the style of a coffee-house restroom key: tied to an awkward object so you never forget that it must be put back in its rightful place. (An Olympus C5050z, if you find a good one on eBay, would work well for this -- nice sharp lens, and very bright, pretty good wide angle.) Because whenever you mention new products / color combos, the tantalizing is nearly criminal

    Phew! I was worried for a second. I really like Cayenne as a liner.

    We love the Cayenne, but we probably won't order it again so that we can make room for a new color. The reason Black/Cayenne was dropped was that we already had a couple of color combinations where Cayenne was the lining - Olive/Cayenne, Navy/Cayenne - and three seemed maybe a little excessive, especially if we wanted to make room for new color combinations such as Punch/Wasabi and Sand/Olive. It will be quite a while before Cayenne disappears completely.

    Hi bagchick,

    I am not actually a Twitter user. I see the ones that show on the blog, just under the Weekly Archives section, left-hand side. Cheers.

    Yay on both counts! But especially for the wallet! I love the wallet so much and I can't thank you guys enough for sending me a free one because I probably never would have bought it without holding one. Now I'm going to be buying at least one more for myself (I have several cards and discount cards so I want two) and another for my boyfriend (who might also be buying a brain cell soon!).

    I've also been following the "tweets" about color information and was going to post a question about possible upcoming colors -- particularly in Dyneema. Since scotlib asked about the blue option, can I ask about the other color combinations coming up -- like the forest and brick ultrasuede wallet dividers? And when will these be available for order? Bad luck on the olive dyneema seconds qualiy -- any other color prospects on the horizon?

    About 4 ounces or so.

    Also, it's $180 - same price as the regular Aeronaut.
