    Limited quantity restocks mean there could be several, or as few as one, of the listed item. The oSSB in Tidal was probably very low quantity and the blog post was later updated with what was left...
    Also, the halcyon fabric supply was constrained due to pandemic related supply chain issues, so there seems to be a lot of pent up demand for halcyon in the TB community; sorry it didn't work out this time!

    Nice spotting that difference! There was a delay on the supplier-side for the mesh we typically use. Thankfully, that same supplier had an alternate mesh that was quite similar in its quality, durability, and function as the mesh we typically use, so we opted for that.

    The new mesh worked out (and sewed!) well and we liked it quite a lot, but then our original mesh was restocked and we decided to stick with that just because it’s what we’ve traditionally used.

    It’s time for another low quantity restock! It’ll be 10/21 at 7:00am PT. It’s been several months since the last one, so the list of items is long.

    Here’s the link to the blog post with the full list of items that’ll be restocked: https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/lqr1021

I quite like their looks/feels so I'm not complaining, just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy when I compared them and was like "wait...are these different?"
    Those are the same fabric! Just a little goof on our side and the Boreal Pouches are all called Tough Stuff now. Sorry for the confusion

    would those of you who like the Recycled colors share why you like them so much?

    sturbridge that I like the hand in the 630d recycled fabric, as well as liking the color. It has a more cloth-like feel to the weave than the Ballistic Nylon, and I’ve like the material ever since it debuted in the Icons. It’s slightly less stiff than 525d Ballistic Nylon but closer to that than 210d Ballistic Nylon. When it was first offered in the trucks and monster trucks these were the last versions to sell out. I figured that might be because several people were buying these for “rugged” purposes where they might store car tools or chains and machinery in the trucks and drag them over concrete and rough surfaces so they didn’t want anything that hinted of a less tough nature in the feel of the fabric.

    if you want to try a sample of the 630d fabric (apart from asking the TB crew for a sample swatch) you can try ordering a Ghost Whale Organizer pouch in 630d. They mostly sold out in 630d early, but there’s a Super Mini GWOP still available in 630 d Nebulous Grey

    Then, again, some people just like the colors and the different weave and slightly different sheen (it looks like a tighter weave)

    The Seapine is a beautiful rich dark green color. The Logic Blue is not bad, but the Seapine reminds me of the bottle green color used on classic Karmen Gias.

    I'm planning to buy a Pop Tote the next time they drop and would love to see Seapine as a color option. (@Darcy - hint, hint ☺️)

I'm trying to hold out for something like a Wilderness/Cloud Synapse 25 and I want to know how many months of a wait I might be looking at.
    Thanks for the tag,

    G42!

    We have been out of Wilderness 525 but it is *just* back on the shelf. We'll start working it back into production now but it missed a batch of Synapse 25s that were recently started. It's possible we'll get another batch of S25 going and done by the end of the year but that could be tight. It's likely when the Wilderness S25s come back they'll be lined with either Coyote or Northwest Sky 200d Halcyon.

    I hope that helps with planning!

    Oooh, yes. I was hoping to grab another one today with my double organizer pouches and didn't realize they were out of stock.
