    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?

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

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!

    @Wanderlust did you get versions of the Pick-Up Truck in the 630d recycled fabric? That was the major addition to the Pick-Up Truck preorder ( along with the fact that at the time they announced the original retirement. Deep Blue was not available because the fabric wa in the process of being restocked).

    I have the Deep Blue, Burnt Orange, Nebulous Grey, and Aubergine in 525 Ballistic.
    And Dawn, Coyote, Island, and Grass in 210 Ballistic.
    I don’t have any in the recycled fabric yet, but they’re in my Wish List.

    I'm sure the Sprout is great for small kids, though!

    It was mentioned in the newsletter email that due to the delay in some zippers for products that were in process, they quickly pivoted to make some batches of other products.

    ETA: and that's a cool gift idea! I think we need a) to be on your gift list or b) at least get photos of the yummy goodness in the PUT 😁

    I don’t have small kids anymore (alas!), but I’m thinking of picking up a couple for future grandkids (no pressure, kids!)

    This was the tweet (should be generally readable, I think)https://twitter.com/tombihn/status/1492544687168753665
