    Me three! I got so excited I started dancing in my seat. Who knew you could get so excited about an early delivery. I guess the colorway I chose helped (L12 in NG/Island).

      I had planned to use mine as an EDC for work. My SCB is a bit too small if I want to carry lunch as well and my DLBP too big. And with the Luminary I will have a better place to store my iPad or E-reader when I want to take them with me for the commute. And I plan to finally put my Travel Cubelet to use inside the Luminary. Also for travel, I will be going to Munich in April to visit my best friend and then go to Paris with the family in May. Can’t wait to see how that works out with the L12!

        Should be brilliant for exploring. I used my S19 through Paris last year and it worked well. It was large enough that I could shove my winter coat inside while indoors at museums. My daily commute is long, but I drive to work and I don't really bring much other than my travel cubelet and lunch bag. I think the L12 will be perfect for hopping on a train to go downtown, or if I go for a longer walk/adventure in my neighborhood.

          Been umming and ahhing about replacing my S25 for a few months now, as it's had a few niggling problems (tl;dr, it was a second hand buy from eBay, unfortunately I'm not sure it was looked after very well)

          Well an unexpected work bonus just sealed the deal! Nebulous Grey/Island Ballistic with internal frame. S25 has been brilliant as my EDC, but can't wait to give it it's first real test when I go to Amsterdam for a couple of days next month 😁

              Me too! It's supposed to arrive on Tuesday. Fingers crossed that there won't be any problems.

                Looks like either Monday or Tuesday for me! Can't wait to play around with it, I haven't ordered myself a new Tom Bihn bag in a few months!

                            I thought it was nerve-wracking to wait for a new order. But that is as nothing compared to my butterflies when I was awaiting my trusty S19, that I had sent in for a minor repair! UPS teased me by saying it had been delivered, yet no box was on my porch. But when I called it turned out it was still on the truck. Finally - finally, the doorbell rang and I was reunited with my old friend! Looks like-new and ready for more adventures!! Huzzah!! And three cheers for the TB Crew (with special shoutout to Kat, who reassured me throughout the whole process) whose turnaround time and quality of craftsmanship are amazing as always!!!

                              A new-to-me CP in original (white grid) Nordic/Solar was on it's way to me from a fellow Forum member on UK eBay, with help from @cristina, as some of you may have seen in the photos she posted...

                              It arrived to my work address TODAY - that was super fast! But I'm out on a work trip, so I'm still a couple thousand miles away from it -arrgh!


                              Hopefully my trip and return flights back to CA work out so I can swooooop into the office Friday and pick up my lovely new bit of happiness

                                Congrats. What a great bag. Original nordic/solar is my very favorite TB colorway. Looking forward to pictures.
