    My current every day carry is actually a Boreal bag... it's a prototype of a tote backpack design that Nik's been working on for a while now.

    And Happy Holidays to you as well! We might actually get snow over the weekend here in Seattle!
    Ahhhh!!! This is the dream bag I’ve been wanting, a tote backpack crossover. Darcy you minx, thanks for the sneaky-sneak good news! 😁

    For real! And with a caveat: we each might have a different picture on our minds when we think of "tote backpack" so it might not be quite what everyone is expecting. And the design could certainly continue to evolve. One thing I love about it is that it stands up on its own, so I can easily pull my laptop in and out of the compartment or reach in the pockets for my camera card reader or wallet, basically just work out of it.

    Nik wants all of us to do more testing, provide more feedback, and give himself time to evaluate and possibly incorporate the feedback before it debuts... just the usual measures of thoughtfulness and thoroughness that we strive for. We're hoping it'll be released mid-late 2022.

I hope it's a good sign that this material is getting used on larger bags (we've progressed from the grab bag all the way to the monster truck!) and that Boreal Synapses and Syniks will get at least one run in 2022. Happy holidays!

    I had an aubergine luggage tag for a long time, it was very useful when I used a suitcase. Now that I one-bag with a backpack I haven’t had the need. But they’re totally worth it and I would recommend them.

    Though, I admit I can carry an Apple Tag or Tile in the wallet in order to find it - its an age thing. And the Pocket Pouch would not work for that quite as well unless I clip the finder onto it.

    New building has card access doors except offices, and even the copy machine is card log-in....just trying to minimize the EDC to card, one key office key, finder tag, and a clip on strap.
    Now I want (at least one) of those luggage tags.

    We're having lots of discussions these days about labels, but there aren't any current plans to offer Black exterior bags w/the regular label. I will note this request in our project app, though, which will certainly lead to more label discussions

    Yes, please. I'd buy one. Or two or three ...

    By the way, if you look at the OSCA photos, there are Sangria and Mountain Cerylon clear 3DOC showing as well as PCSB in Mountain.

    The blog post https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/more-updates#cerylon had mentioned 3DOCs; I hope that the all fabric will return as well. I can't tell if the Mountain mostly fabric item in the pocket in one photo is the PCSB or a fabric 3DOC or a Cubelet or something...

    I'm not normally a huge fan of red, but I quite like the Sangria

    @ablakely The Luggage tag that debuted on March 10, 2015 (link to blog), can be used for some of what you want. Take a look at the Business cards and Tom Bihn luggage tags for some pictures.There are other posts, but the forum reindexing has made it hard to find them. The quick answer is that when the luggage tags debuted, they circulated some prototypes to the mods for feedback. It was noted that you could also use these to hold items like hotel room cards (if you wanted to carry them wristlet fashion after going to the gym or pool), and that it should also be sized so that a range of international business cards (taller than US cards) should fit into the luggage tag in place of the standard name tag label,

    If you haven't seen this blog post about this restock, check it out .. It has some info on it

    https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/1116-restock
    Just wanted to note, if you don’t see one of the items you want at the time of your order, it may help to check back later. On some of these restock days, I find some items fly off the product page, and then later someone adds them back in. This has happened on other restock days, too. For example, the fabric Clear Organizer Wallets in Navy Parapack went down in number to just a few, then vanished from the options, and a little later someone put these back in the product list. I’m not saying that this will happen for very limited quantity items, like the dozen or so Parental Units that showed up, but for small accessory items in specific colors it’s worth checking back if you didn’t see it at the time you first looked.

    ETA. Which is not to say that I haven’t seen the P.I.K.A.s going down at a fast rate,
