    Are there any tips that people use to organize orders on restock days, especially of popular items (other than discipline)?
    I add the restocking items items I want to my Wishlist before restocking day. And I add any already in-stock items to my cart before a restocking day. On restocking day usually all I have to do is go to my wish list, click the "Add All Wishlist Items" button, and check out.*

    *Wish list may not work when a restock of an item is really limited quantity/really popular. To order those items go to the product page, add the item to the cart, and check out immediately. You can do that multiple times; all of the orders within a certain amount of time will be combined into one shipment.

    I either have discipline and wait and savour the anticipation.... or I pay for two sets of shipping, but it's easy for me because I live in CA so it's $10 for UPS Ground and it arrives usually at 3 days.

    I don't live too far from Seattle and on the West Coast! It arrived pretty fast! I got the Ursa ballistic and northwest sky Synik 30.

    It's definitely the best bag I've ever owned. It can carry so much stuff. The internal frame and the edgeless straps are incredible.

    I donated my old backpack to goodwill on the same day my Tom Bihn bag arrived yesterday haha.

    That laptop compartment is a huge bonus for my Dell XPS 9500.

    While we’re waiting can you share what color of the LGD you ordered? Did you add a water bottle pocket to attach?

    Thank you! It's good to be here ... or maybe I should say back here, since I've been a Tom Bihn fan for a long time now. In fact, there used to be a photo of me on the TB blog modeling (sic) my then-new ID bag back in the day - Darcy may remember it, though it's slightly embarrassing to the older, more low-profile me. I still use that ID bag though!

    As for my LGD: I ordered the Beaver Camo version, since I never met a camo bag I didn't like. (Seriously - I have half a dozen other bags in various permutations of camo fabric already, so this one will be in good company.) I did have a momentary change of heart after I placed my preorder back in May and thought the all-black iteration might be more versatile until I remembered that the reason why I always gravitate towards camo prints is because they pretty much go with anything casual. And the photos of the Beaver Camo version that were posted on the TB blog a few weeks ago sealed the deal for me - that is one slick looking camo. (Can camo be slick? I digress.)

    I didn't order the water bottle pocket since I mostly use a flexible Vapur bottle when I'm out and about and have found they don't fit well into designated water bottle pockets - the squared-off corners on mine tend to get caught on the pocket material. I did, however, pick up a Simple Shoulder Strap and a small Ghost Whale organizer pouch since I also think one can't have enough shoulder straps or organizer pouches. (Or camo bags, for that matter ... )

    I rec'd a VERY BIG box 'o goodies...

    Any Terry Pratchett fans here? Tiffany Aching?

    "“Tiffany knew what the problem was immediately. She'd seen it before, at
    birthday parties. Her brother was suffering from tragic sweet
    deprivation. Yes, he was surrounded by sweets. But the moment he took any
    sweet at all, said his sugar-addled brain, that meant he was not taking
    all the rest. And there were so many sweets he'd never be able to eat
    them all. It was too much to cope with. The only solution was to burst
    into tears.”



    ― Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men


    So Many Colours....!

    TBAS for me is waiting for the origin scan, the loading/out for delivery scan the following morning, and then seeing the truck pull up outside my house. Luckily I only have to wait a day for my boxes.
    Lucky you! Is the Tom Bihn factory near the airport (from what I see on the map)? If so, I presume you can relieve a bad case of acute TBAS by picking up from the mothership

    Edit: They are finally here! Thanks TB Crew for picking a matching pocket pouch to go with the GE S30 I know the large TT is... large but it feels even larger in person!

It's also probably a sign of desperation for not being able to travel, made worse by the fact that the TB bags get to fly the B747-8 most of the way... But hopefully tomorrow is a happy day!

    Not just UK, same too here in France. USPS takes forever; always arrived eventually after appearing to go back and forwards within USA first. So, for me, not to be used for anything remotely urgent. It’s where I generally weigh up paying noticeably more for UPS than cheaper USPS - and then “justifying” it by buying a few more items for the fixed UPS rate.
