    Me too! i ordered one a couple of weeks ago in NW Sky. We were out of town until last night so I haven't even opened the box yet. It was meant to be because I saw the Olive this morning, ordered it, and just need to send the NW Sky back. Perfect timing!

      After a very unfortunate 4th of July trip where I lost an SE and probably ruined a much loved Co-pilot, I took the opportunity to get a UV Travel Cubelet and a halcyon CP that I've been wanting to try! Anyone know if the TC fits in one of the front side pockets of the CP?

        Sorry to hear about your Side Effect and Co-Pilot, @maryhb,

        The travel Cubelet is much wider than accessories like the 3D Organizer Cube and Side Effect (both of these considered as fitting in the Co-Pilot pockets in the long dimension), so it won't easily fit into either of the two front zippered pockets of the Co-Pilot. Two Travel Cubelets, laid side by side on top of the front of the Co-Pilot, basically spam its width, with their edges lined up with the zipper at the center of the Co-Pilot's water bottle pocket. That means that the only way to get one into a side pocket is to force the mesh barrier side of the water bottle pocket all the way in to the zipper.

        The TC's width is part of its versatility -- you can easily carry Kindles and other eReaders or large phones. You can't fit an IPad mini in the TC, because the top would stick out above the zippered opening, but it's wide enough to hold one (just not tall enough).

          @moriond Interesting, thanks for the size comparison! It sounds a little bigger than I was expecting for some reason, can't wait to get it and see!

            I ordered a Synapse 19 last week and also got the dreaded TB Anticipation Syndrome after reviewing Tom Binh's website and the wealth of information, especially people's posts in the forums. However, I was crushed when it came in wrong color. Now I must wait, likely, at minimum a week before I get the replacement. <drama> Oh the pain and the suffering! What will I doooo! It hurts soooo much! </drama> Ok, ok, first things first.. 1-800-<Tom Bihn customer service>

              Nice, spoke with Matthew and he'll be getting the correct one out to me by around Tuesday. Thanks Matthew! My anticipation syndrome, though had increased significantly, is going back down a wee bit.

                And you got to talk to cool Bihn Peeps and see what a responsive Customer Service they are... think of it as a free trial view of a colour combo that you haven't seen in person...

                    I am refreshing the A45 page every day. Looking to get a Verde/NWS when they're out of production and in stock. I would like to add in a Dawn Cubelet since they are in production as well.

                      I caved and ordered the Navy/NWSky A30 since I haven't had any luck trading for a colour combo I want and Steel/Island is not in the 12wk production window....
                      Since I was ordering, an azure and an azalea mini OP joined the A30 to keep it company, since the Corduras are slowly going away...
                      The cool thing is, since I'm in northern CA, my order today (before noon) will get here midday on Friday!

                          Sadly I have known delays of a week to ten days with USPS once it passes into the Royal Mail system. You can sometimes use the original number to track on the Royal Mail website tracking facility, where it might advise "awaiting customs clearance" or something similar. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long but unfortunately there is nothing to do except wait for an update.

                            That is helpful but so annoying!!! Ugh! Hopefully I’ll get some update soon. I have been using the USPS number on the Royal Mail website and it works but it says it's "left the origin country" and there will be more info once it arrives in the UK (which it has) but nothing else.

                              OH. MY. GOSH!!!

                              I just got email from TB that read:

                              Good news: we expect to ship your pre-order between August 7th and 8th.
                              Looks like my order for the small and large zip-top totes got in early and I'm getting one of the earlier batches!! Since the info said "early September," this is SUCH a treat! I'm SO excited!!! Thank you Tom Bihn crew for exceeding expectations, as usual! You all are THE best!! I can only imagine how hard you've been working to get these manufactured; I really appreciate it!

                                Yes! I got the same email. Perfect timing to try out the zip shop bags for late August trip to the sierras!
