    Weeks! Will be part of a late August or early September restock.

    Yay!!!

    I still haven't chosen my colors of Zeitgeist and Paradigm yet. I was able to look through all of them in person, of course, and I just couldn't make up my mind because there's too many good options. I think I might go 1000d Cordura with the Zeitgeist (fits the retro vibe best IMHO) and 400d Halcyon (Night Walk!) in the Paradigm.

    Just ordered one in 525, but this color Halcyon is stunning.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    I’m looking for an everyday laptop+tablet+accessories carry bag with more space than the Cadet. Since the Empire Builder I’ve had my eye on has been retired, I’m thinking the Western Flyer would fit my needs perfectly, BUT I’d really like to get it in Burnt Orange!

    Darcy, are there any future plans to offer more color options for the Western Flyer?

    I know the Tri-Star is very similar and comes in Burnt Orange, but I feel like it’s just slightly too big for my needs. The slightly smaller profile of the Western Flyer would be much better for me since I plan to carry it with other stuff and I’m not a big person.
    Welcome back

    We're hoping to fit another production run of the Western Flyer into the schedule sometime soon, and it would definitely include more color options. It's a bit too early in the process for me to give a specific ETA on when those would be available for order, though. Sorry, wish I could offer more specificity!

    As someone who's been asking for Ghost Whales in 200 or 400d Halcyon for a few years now, I'll definitely take a Cordura one too. Very excited for that!

    Yes, please — Canary Ghost Whales with Island or Iberian zippers gets my vote!
    Thank you Darcy!

    Yeah! Those three options will be listed on the website as In Production soon (though the photo will be the "coming soon" image for a while).

    That'd be fun. Our plan was to put the color zippers out there in the Icon and Ghost Whales and see how many requests we received for other bags w/color zippers.... adding this to the color request tracking thread. Might be an especially fun thing to offer for the holidays.

    I got my parcel today and instantly switched my EDC stuff to the Ursa/Dawn MCB. Love the color combination!

    And I have to say, the LCBs I ordered are HUGE! Not sure what I expected... They look pretty big on my frame. We'll see how much use they will get.

    Over the time I've gone back and forth between deciding between the Side Kick and Side Effect, I've noticed that both have pretty consistently been available in the same colorways - which makes sense, given the shared DNA between the two.

    However, the 7/29 restock information for the Side Kick seems to be missing the Black 525 Ballistic/Cloud 210 Ballistic option, which is available for the Side Effect ... and which is the combo I'd most had my heart set on. I seem to remember the Black/Cloud option for the Side Kick being available previously. Any chance it was mistakenly removed as an option in the migration to the new website, or will the new Side Kicks really not be available in this color combo?

    Thanks for catching that, MisterJacques! I'm glad Cody was able to help

    Let's Darcy to see if she can take a look
    Just heard from Cody this morning (I'd submitted an email inquiry before I remembered these forums were a good place to ask questions too), who said that the Black/Cloud combo for the Side Kick was indeed inadvertently omitted from the website (it's there now) and will be available for preorder on the 29th. Hizzah! Thanks all!
