    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?

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.
    I too love the Olive cordura (and the cocoa and linen and black and . . .) and would buy them all in a Synapse, Synik, or Paragon.

    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.

    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.

    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!
