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.
    We just chatted about this today! The next order of Paragons will include Night Walk and 1000d Cordura options; those bags will be done around late October, I'd estimate. Before then, there will be a Paragon restock, but it won't include those colors/fabrics.

    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.
    Noted!

    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.

    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,

    Wow I haven’t been here in awhile!

    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!
