    Hi All! I wanted to let you know that along with tomorrow's restock we'll also be doing a returns/low quantity restock at the same time. There is no exhaustive list this time around but there are a few things that will catch folks' interest like a Brain Bag, a couple of Cadets, and a few PIKA Pouches and Travel Laundry Stuff Sacks! Just wanted to give you all on the forums a heads up

    We do have more Brain Bags and Cadets coming really soon so if you're after one of those the wait shouldn't be too much longer!

      Any idea when the full selection of Cadets will be available?

        It's looking like they'll be early April.

          Thank you! One other question...I seem to recall reading the Cadet shoulder strap attachment points are going back to the side of the bag. Is that accurate?

            tankcommander1554 Yes! We are working to get the photos updated on the site before they're restocked but all of the upcoming Cadets have the shoulder strap attachment moved back to the side of the bag.

                Out of curiosity, what ever happened to Boreal Ruff Stuff? I liked its particular shade of green, but only a couple smaller items have been made out of it thus far (that I'm aware of, anyway). It sounded like it had a similar feel to cordura, but is it a fabric that has the shortcomings of cordura (collects pet hair, abrades clothes) without the great aspects of cordura (really tough, nice matte canvas look)? Was its "ruff-ness" too ruff--er, rough? Will we ever see full-size packs made from it?

                  There's quite a few items that have been made out of Boreal Ruff Stuff so far: https://www.tombihn.com/search?q=boreal

                  Since it's still a relatively new material, I guess TB are still experimenting with it. There may also be supply issues (just guessing), as with many other materials, so they may be restricting things to certain types of bags and pouches.

                    To build in what dirkhaun said, it only debuted in August, which isn't very long ago in the TB production universe.
                    Here's the blog post announcing it in the Grab Bag
                    https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/8...8181f9dc&_ss=r

                    Note that TB wanted to hear what folks thought about it before using it in more items... They've since expanded into Shop Bags, Trucks, and it's in production for the Zeitgeist.

                      Thanks for the info, G42 and dirkhaun. I knew it was being used in the Grab Bag, and it looks like it's also appeared in a number of tote bags. The biggest surprise is that they're doing a Boreal Ruff Stuff Zeitgeist. While not a pack I would buy, it's nice to see photos of it in use on a backpack - it's actually quite handsome, with what appears to be a very canvas-y look and texture. Kinda like a midpoint between olive cordura and a more forest-type color. I'll be on the lookout for people's thoughts on using it day-to-day as a pack fabric.

                          Just a slight correction, it's the Daylight Backpack that updated, not the briefcase. Got my hopes up there, I really want a DLBC in Night Walk-although now that the DLBP is getting it, might not be too far off. Fingers crossed!

                            Thanks, typo! and probably wishful thinking since I too would love a DLBC in Night Walk...and a Paragon in NW

                              On the latest 'Rare Bag Giveaway' page.... I see some orange fabric back there... Darcy is that more leftovers/samples for Grab Bags or maybe maybe new orange?

                                G42 I took the photo and I can tell ya that those oranges are all leftoevers or samples, most of the rolls/fabrics in general in that area are. We're more likely to see the majority of the fabrics there as Grab Bags than anything else.
