    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.

    My UPS box is out for delivery - I'm looking forward to all the Tidal things and I also picked up a Makers Bag for the first time... the pre-orders ship in the next couple of weeks and I want to compare it to the Large Cafe I ordered. Not convinced I'll keep either of them since they seem very large, but I figure this is the last time in a while to directly compare them.

Now it's a waiting game...

    You know you have a serious case of TBAS when you are stalking the UPS flights that the TB bags take to reach their destination - first 5X981 BFI-SDF, then 5X223 SDF-CGN, 5X14 CGN-SZX, and hopefully tonight the final leg of the journey 5X167 SZX-SIN. 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!

    My S25 and PCSB were finally here a week after they were shipped! So many good things I can say, but I should enjoy the bags first

    Totally fine, that's why we're here!

    HTH

    OH looks sharp & it's such a unique fabric you can't find with other bag makers. It a fabric color I fell in love with recently watching old youtube review videos and forum posts. I also wanted some OH items before it gets retired. Speaking of which, is OH still in consideration to be retired? I remember reading that on the forums dating back to 2019...
    I believe that Darcy will be posting a blog update within a few weeks with some status updates overall, including on materials - hopefully she will answer your question there or here. I love the original halcyon too

    I’m really curious to learn your impressions about Original Halcyon, especially in light of how much you liked your Daylight Backpack in 400d Taiga. I use the Side Kick in 400d Black Halcyon/Island; that was the Halcyon option that was first available when the Side Kick debuted. I do have a Side Kick in Original Halcyon — they agreed to do a release in this material while original Halcyon was still available, but it was a few years before that option appeared.
