    And this is why TB is the absolute best! I had forgotten about Cocoa until John1970 mentioned it, so I'd welcome a resurface of that one along with the burnt orange... okay so basically any earthy 1000d options lol. And thanks for the heads up about the Paradigm and Zeitgeist specs, because no of course I hadn't noticed. I'm usually clueless about these things haha!

    I'm so in love with the Zeitgeist, mainly because of that moon label. Ain't it a beaut?!? TB team, I really hope we see more of this label in the future hint hint! And with the introduction of Taiga and Night Walk, I've suddenly become a huge fan of Halcyon which was a fabric I avoided until now. I originally had plans to purchase a Paragon which would have been a nice, slight step up from my #1 EDC which is a DLBP. Although the Paragon does have a touch of vintage charm to it and might have been the perfect size and weight for me as an EDC, the boxy shape and horizontal zipper constantly gave me pause with my purchase. Those details reminded me of my junior high school backpack. (Those years aren't full of fond memories - I was the flat-chested, skinny, bookworm with glasses. Okay well kinda still am... but thankfully I've come into my own.)

    Anyway, so with the intro of the Zeitgeist (I had to google the pronunciation of that one) I'm just going to reverse my plans and go smaller instead of slightly larger and also carry a SK or SCB with it, when needed. Maybe! One of the many great things about TB bags is the interchangeability of them. I look forward to seeing and posting some marsupial ideas with the Zeitgeist, as well. I can see this fitting nicely into some of my other packs and bags. Zeitgeist shoulder strap addition in the future could also be a fun hack idea. Countdown to the preorder!

    Oh I forgot about fantastic Cocoa but yes!!! And I would be dangerously close to replacing or adding to my collection with all you mentioned above.

    Darcy Do you by any chance know if there is a planned restock of the SG23 in black?

    I noticed that Qkit too and rushed over to the page but found only 1050 options listed. I hope 200 ballistic offerings will be available in the future. They look more squish able to fit into odd spaces better.

    Is that a Small Q-Kit in Cloud(?) Ballistic and a Medium All Fabric Organizer Pouch in Dawn(?) Ballistic in the Zeitgeist video? 👀

    Does that mean we'll have those two items in 210 or 525 ballistic colours coming up? 😁

    Darcy, is there any plan to offer the Synapse 19 in cordura, esp. red blend?

    Can’t wait! If they were available around the time the first Techonaut preorders were shipping out, I wouldn’t hate it. 😉

I've not enjoyed that fabric as much as I'd hoped. Now if TB will just release a Pop Tote in Cordura, that's the next item on my list and I'd hold out for that one. Really like the Paradigm also. Are there liters or dimensions posted on the Paradigm & Zeitgeist anywhere? Just curious about sizing but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.
    Pop Totes are likely getting restocked at the end of this month. No 1000d options, I'm afraid, but I've added your request to our Color Request Tracking thread. Added a note asking for more Olive 1000d options, too And I'm sure you saw this, but the dimensions and volume for the Paradigm and Zeitgeist are up on their respective pages now!

    Darcy I've been searching the forum for awhile this morning trying to find where you said the Paragon would be released in Nightwalk. I can't find it anywhere (but as my wife will point out, I can't find things in front of my face). So I will just ask here, is there a timeline for this? Seeing the Zeitgeist in Nightwalk is making me want this even more. My S25 is now a bit overkill for an EDC for me, and the Paragon looks perfect.

    Darcy , this might be difficult to predict with all that's on your plate, but when can we expect a 3rd preorder with new color combinations for the Techonaut?
    Our goal is to restock the Techonaut in November in all of the pre-order color combinations, and keep it stocked! We don't plan to add any new color combinations for quite some time. Hope that helps a bit.

    Very excited for the Zeitgeist. To me, it's got some resemblance to the Paragon, which is my every-day carry now. It's hard to picture the size until I see it in person, but I'm hoping that it will be perfect for weekend trips like shopping or going to a museum -- maybe a small, flat backpack like that will make it past the security guards.
