    Mausermama: Please post pics. I keep waffling on whether to order the GES25 in Mars Red, or wait for the regular S25 in Mars Red to come back in stock. I love the coyote, but I don't need the extra features, and the black trim would match my other luggage better.

      Here’s a pic of the Mars Red GE25 with an Alphaviolet Pop Tote. It arrived a week and a half ago, but unfortunately I’m in Germany and won’t have it until Christmas when I’m back in the states.

        My new Original Halcyon DLBP was delivered! Can't wait until I'm home from work. Curious how different it looks with NWS instead of Steel.

          I just ordered a Mars Red Synapse 25 and Original Halcyon Daylight Backpack and I may die of excitement before they arrive [emoji7] I've been waiting for these colours to come in for aeons [emoji2]

            Here it is and I love it! Feels like an old friend but at the same time like a new bag because the NWS makes a lot of difference. It's so much brighter inside! And I had totally forgotten how crisp the fabric was in the beginning...

                    I'm super depressed today from reading the news about net neutrality, so I have made a big order as a form of shop therapy. I've been wanting these bags for months - alphaviolet luminary, night flight duffel, and travel cubelet. got a night flight packing cube to try out as well.

                        lol. Black...I know, kinda boring...but being in the military I wanted a pack I could use/wear in uniform AND that I liked to use while not in uniform. And this fit the bill! Now I have a true everyday (and travel) backpack I can (and want) use.

                        Again, very excited. And happy to find this community here too.

                            I just placed another order, this time for a SCB in Original Halcyon. I figured I should get one before Original Halcyon is gone for good... But this time there's quite a bit of wait - I didn't want to pay for international shipping and taxes again, so I asked a friend for help and will have to wait for it. I should hold it in my hands in a few months. I'm not sure about Wasabi from what I've seen in pictures, but hopefully it will grow on me.

                              I've ordered a Mars Red Pop Tote and Travel Cubelet, which started their long journey to New Zealand on Friday. UPS estimates delivery by end of day 27/12/2017, which was initially disappointing because normally they're quite fast. I put it down to extra volume because of the holiday season, and also public holidays in New Zealand on the 25th and 26th. Looking at the tracking this morning, my order is already in Louisville, so I'm hoping that delivery will be earlier than estimated. The usual route from Louisville is Honolulu-Sydney-Auckland-Wellington, and I'm thinking that could be possible in 5 days. I really am keen to see the Pop Tote!

                                I started this thread in 2009 and now 75 pages and 8 years later I still have that thrill when my Tom Bihn package is enroute. Yes, once again I have that most delicious of fevers, the Tom Bihn Anticipation Syndrome. I have 2 bags coming, a Shop Bag - large size (I already have the small now for many years,) in Northwest Sky 200 Halcyon, and a Pop Tote in Mars Red 525 Ballistic. Quite an exciting combo. While my Co-Pilot has been a faithful and steadfast servant as my EDC, I am toying with the idea of the Pop Tote being my EDC and strapping my Side Effect into it as a core organizational nexus while expanding my load capability substantially. I am really looking forward to playing around with various configurations. One item I am dwelling on is my water bottle. What is a good way to carry one in the Tote? I'm working on that. Hey, I may even sew up a solution if need be. Ha, it's 10 to 11 at night and I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve again. Thanks Tom and Crew, Merry Christmas!
