      Update!

      I saw that the Black Halcyon #4 Wallet came back in stock a couple of hours later, so I emailed the Crew and asked if it can be changed. Kat confirmed that the swap could be made. Yassss!!!! *happy dancing*
      Long live Burnt Orange! Zest! 152!

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.
        I think your obsession with burnt orange floated onto me. Today I ordered a Mars Red GWOP because I had it in my wishlist not knowing/thinking the re-stock would include Burnt Orange. I only noticed that color after I had ordered the red. A moment of doubt crept over me, but then I was okay I got red anyways, wanting to try it out and have various colors in my bag. Still waiting to pre-order a burnt orange Small Cafe bag though!

          Whoops, I just accidentally bought an old school red tri star on EBay! I put in the lowest possible bid thinking someone else would win and I would go away happy, thinking they wanted it more than me. Did not expect to win! [emoji2]
          Now we wait for it to arrive. I may post pics here as I'm not sure whether it is crimson or cardinal. Reversed zippers, triangle logo, steel interior, old style strap attachments.

            Here’s the diffère between Crimson (left) and Cardinal (right)

            ETA: I’m not sure what “old style strap attachments” means. But this is what the attachment points for the shoulder strap looked like when the Tri-Star debuted in 2009:
            (From Practical Hacks First take: Tom Bihn Tri-Star)


            This is what the attachment points looked like in the 2013 Tri-Star video, Stephan's bags/accessories from the Tri-Star video. Note: I prefer to reference this later blog post which identifies all the accessories that appear in the video, instead of the earlier blog post that only references the video itself. I screen captured one of the shots near the end of the video that shows the attachment point for shoulder straps.

                  Actually, by the time the Cardinal Tri-Star debuted in June 2011, they had already changed over to the triangular connection points for the shoulder strap. The Tri-Star video from 2013 was simply an easy place to grab a view of the attachment point. (It’s also got my favorite Daniel L.K. Caldwell video music track — the compilation that he made for Tom BIHN is downloadable; the Tri-Star uses track #3). They used the same shoulder strap attachment points for the older Empire Builder and (retired) Zephyr briefcases. (These are metal rather than plastic).

                  My Tri-Star (Indigo/Solar) is from the first production batch, and the one you won in your eBay auction may have a similar pedigree! And BTW, I use multiple language keyboards so I accordingly get more instances of autocorrect. (The “diffère” where I meant to type “difference” came from my French AZERTY keyboard)

                    I am waiting with great anticipation for when my pre-order arrives in the next month or two. I don't remember exactly everything that I bought so it will be a fun surprise when it arrives. So exciting.

                      Is there any hope for a restocked Trucksana this year?

                        I am excited you're excited! And the crew will be, too: everyone's working to get the pre-orders finished right now!

                        Yes! Could be as soon as April/May. This is one I am looking forward to because I don't even have my own Truckasana yet
                        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                          I just got an email to say my pre-order is shipping next week! Fortunately, I already added the Ghost Whales I wanted earlier today so I can now just sit back and wait for the customs bill (eek!).

                            Me too! I'm sad that I can't keep adding things to this order but I see a Cafe Bag and Travel Tray in my future so I can abuse my wallet in a few weeks.

                              Me too, I wanted to add a Q Kit in each size, but it doesn't make sense to ask them to hold the order for that, especially when I keep eyeing up the Luminary 15...

                              My medium Café Bag is ace, I'm sure you'll love yours!

                                So excited for my Synik 30.
                                Just want to shoutout the TB customer service. I had multiple change orders (such tough decision!) and Kat resolved them hassle free.
