    TB Anticipation Syndrome

    I scored an aubergine truck, A5 viridian ghost whale, small nebulous recycled ghost whale, mini seapine ghost whale (I already have a Alphaviolet mini ghost whale at hone plus Alphaviolet and seapine pickup trucks in my preorder). I think they will all look lovely together!

    Spent more than I had originally planned (caved and purchased a Synapse 25 for like the 4th time).


    And this doesn’t include my preorder of the Black Halcyon Side Effect, Monster Truck and DLPCSB Cerylon...gonna have to sell some bags to offset this lol.

    I have a combined pre-order (incl. HLT2 in Tidal, cubelet in Solaris, PCSB in Taiga) with a friend but we placed another order today because I'm so impatient! Up in Canada but UPS expedited is super quick so I'm hoping to have the goodies first week of March (depending when TB ships it).
    I ordered:
    - Synik 22 (Black Halcyon/Taiga)
    - Small Snake Charmer (Tidal)
    - Travel Stuff Sack size 4 (UV)
    - Ghost Whale Small (Seapine)
    - Ghost Whale Super Mini (Coyote)
    - assorted parts

    I haven't placed an order since 2019 and I'm SO EXCITED. I've never owned a synapse or synik - but my DLBP is just lacking organization for my current needs; really looking forward to having a more functional EDC

    Nice haul!
    How do you plan to use your snake charmers? I picked up a small but don't intend to use it as a tech pouch because I already invested in a rather pricey one. I'm brainstorming ideas to find some non-tech ways to use the SC.

    This is my first order since 2018, which is wild b/c it doesn't feel like that long. I've been wanting a Black Halcyon wallet #4 for a while, but it sold out as I was checking out.

    I got:
    Nik's Minimalist Wallet #4, Black 210d
    Ghost Whale, Super Mini, Black 210d
    Colored Zipper Ghost Whale, Mini, Black 210/NWS zip
    Handle Loop w/Snap Hook (I've been using my Halcyon Side Kick as a planner pouch and quickly found out that I need a handle loop b/c I'm always moving it here and there all day long)
    V2 Reusable Mask, Black Twill

    What is most interesting to me is that I was OBSESSED for years with Burnt Orange, but all my bags of late have been Black or Black Halcyon, which clearly pairs well with Burnt Orange. I even have regrets about not picking up a small Yeoman in black (but I don't need two and I love my Burnt Orange one to death). I haven't even thought about ordering anything in Burnt Orange, even all my wishlist items are black ballistic or halcyon.

    Added a bunch of items to my pre-order: Solaris Small Snake Charmer, Coyote Size 4 Travel Stuff Sack, and then a dive into Ghost Whales with a Black Mesh Super Mini, Black 210 Mini, and Burnt Orange Small.

    I was good today, just a mini Ghost Whale in Mars Red. Added that to the two other orders which contain pre-ordered items though

    Ordered a Small Snake Charmer (didn't originally get into these, but now find them super useful) in Tidal, a Large in Solaris (never tried a large, still on the fence about it), more V6 masks, and a Truck in 630 Nebulous
    Since I'm fortunate to be relatively close for shipping, I opted to have these shipped now instead of waiting for my pre-order to ship.

    For people who want to view the Instagram video of the Tidal and Acuity Everyday Cubelet without having to have a login to Facebook or Instagram, this link seems to work. You have to activate the play button on the image to see the video.

    HTH,

    ETA: That’s probably the best color comparison that I’ve seen of Tidal and Acuity Halcyon, since not only are they displayed side by side, but the video rotates through different viewing angles so that you can see how the colors compare in different lighting angles

    Hi. First time TB customer. Been lurking the forums prior to the presale and all your posts past and present has helped tremendously.

    Preordered:
    Synik30 Deep Blue/Solaris. Hoping this will end my search for the perfect bag.
    Sidekick Ursa/Acuity. Sorry if this was answered, but does the SK fit in the bottom chin pocket of the Synik30?
    PCSB Taiga. Taiga is spicy!

    Can't wait to get that 'Your package has shipped' email.
    What did you guys pick up during the preorder?

    It’s going to depend on whether they update the product pages with those colors as to whether you can check directly for returns going into stock. Another suggestion: if items go into regular production and sell out, it can still be worthwhile to go back and check the product pages for some of these items. When people make quantity errors (like adding the same item to their cart twice) and don’t catch this before checking out, but ask customer support to fix this, the reconciliation in the inventory can take place later.

I also grabbed a size 1 HLT in Solaris but I'm upset with myself that I didn't go for more. I probably would have picked up a Cubelet and maybe a Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. I didn't realize the Solaris offerings would be gone with the pre-orders. Thankfully the Snake Charmers still show Solaris in production so I'll try to grab one of those when they're ready. I can't wait!

    If you saved the Tidal Side Effect to your wishlist, you can access the picture even though it’s not up on the product page now:

    I added an HLT1 in Tidal to my order before the preorder closed.
