    I pre-ordered a T45 in steel/wasabi for a trip to Europe in November (that, let’s face it, will probably be cancelled now). I also ordered a Coyote HLT 2 and Everyday Cubelet. But I got so excited about my accessories and not having a new bag to put them in until October that I ordered a Synik 30 that will be here next week also just so I have a new travel bag sooner. So my inability to manage my TB anticipation led to another bag and even greater expectation for next week. 😂

    I've definitely got a case of TB Anticipation Syndrome. Now that my workplace has gone to a hybrid model, I'm toting a lot more schtuff between home and the office cubicle I share with another professional. (We work on alternate days at the same desk.) In any case, between my laptop, mobile phones (I have two), cables, accessories, umbrella and rain jacket (central Florida gets monsoons in the afternoons during the summer), my lunch, etc. etc. etc, I found things getting a little tight in my S25, so I took the plunge and ordered a Brain Bag. Now I am obsessively checking my UPS app and dreaming of my new bag in Wilderness 525

    ....it's always a good day when you pull the trigger on a new TB bag! I'm retiring my EB...honestly it was too big for my 5'7" frame...but I loved the extra room, the exterior pockets, the fact it stood up...and was easy to justify once I saw what I can sell my EB, S25 and Co-pilot for on eBay...

    ...but I'm saying hello to the Cadet! The black / island will match my A45 and the minimalist design will force some downsizing since I don't have to carry as much tech these days. New Absolute Strap (I should post a pic of the sad state of my first one, after thousands of hours of abuse...I mean use!)...BF gets a new wallet too...

    ...matching cubelet for my Windows brick + mini mouse, oh how I have wanted a cubelet! AND IT'S ISLAND TOO. The pouch that we got as a forum gift a few years ago becomes my ipad / iphone cable holder, and picked up a couple of the whale pouches to check them out...

    ...Island key straps, island zipper pull replacements...island double carabiners....ISLAND EVERYTHING!

    This may be more trouble to implement than it’s worth, as you currently can’t add “out of stock” items to the cart, but if you could, you could potentially make the option to “save cart”, which would act like a second wish list.

    Plus the things you’re wanting to buy would already be there, which would save a step.

    *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.

    It wouldn't be the multiple orders holding things up, but rather... did you perhaps order a Travel Tray? Some orders from the restock are shipping out today because Travel Trays were still going through our QA department; any orders waiting on them will ship today. We didn't proactively notify folks since it's still within the 1-4 business day shipping window.

    Hope this helps a bit and while it's totally ok to post here of course, always also feel free to [email protected] if you'd like us to check on your specific order.
    Darcy - Thanks so much for the info and response!

    Are there any tips that people use to organize orders on restock days, especially of popular items (other than discipline)?

    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.
