    I do use a small Double Organizer Pouch for a small external hard drive. The drive is in the back pocket, the cable in the front.

    Darcy - why were the Snake Charmers changed from 210 Ballistic to 1000 Cordura? Was this a decision based on material qualities (stiffness, etc), or just on material availability?

    Kevo mentioned -- the entire card is visible through the front and it's easy to remove. To be honest, the pouch is more of a way to ensure I won't misplace the card, though, because so far I have only had to show it one time, and I carry a xerox that was accepted at that function, so the original pretty much stays at home.

    I also keep digital images that are in Google Drive, as well as a certification from "VaxYes" that lives in my Apple Wallet.

    This is in the US, though. I've heard that in certain countries, one needs to show the original.

    I'm not Darcy, but for the PIKA, they've said in various other posts that the special one-way interior fabric is special/hard to get, so this may be the last run (they had discontinued it actually, because of that, then found enough in-house during inventory to do this last run)

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

    Darcy Will there also be Super Mini Ghost Whale pouches in Verde and/or Canary on 11/16? Last time Canary was not listed until the Restock went live and I missed it.
    Also a P.I.K.A. POUCH in Verde would be nice.

    I love my COWs, but definitely feel the same about general OPs. I don't use clear OPs for the same reason and really miss the all-fabric OPs. I was really hoping to get the current Cordura colors in all-fabric, so another vote here.

    Here is my standard CDC vaccine card inside the Clear Organizer Wallet. I left the zipper open so you can see that the card is taller than the zipper. You can't see the name and DOB behind the zipper tape and the Tom Bihn logo (saved me from having to blur it out!)

    This photo is to show the width of the card compared to the zipper opening. It *just* fits, and once the card bottoms out in the pouch, you have to awkwardly tug the zipper around and over the top of the card to get it inside. It would be a pain to retrieve other items from the wallet unless you put the card in back.

    If you are looking for a wallet that can also carry your vaccine card, but don't expect to have to show the card regularly, you could get by with the COW and the card in the very back.

    On the other hand, if you are looking for a card protector with which you can easily show people your card through the clear front, I'd opt for the Small Clear Organizer Pouch. That would be the smallest pouch that will show the entire front face of the card, and with a wider zipper, the card would be much easier to remove as well.

    I'll add requests for both to our project app! That said, I think it's unlikely: we're offering quite a few options these days and I think we'd need to narrow them down a bit before offering more, if that makes sense. Maybe as a special production run at some point?
    It would be neat to get the pen/pencil size in particular, as solid fabric - Cerylon would be lovely but so would all the other fabrics

    Really appreciate the options provided for the COW. I’ve been enjoying it last couple months.
