    This restock only had about a dozen Parental Units, because it was so soon after they started mailing out the preorders. — probably most of those were cancelations. My guess is that some forum members may have ordered more than one model during the preorder, knowing that would a scarce commodity, and wanting the ability to choose or hold onto more than one, since there is a 60 day return window. I seriously doubt most people who received their preorders could decide on doing a return and get it in before the restock that offered these, given that a number of forum members were still asking about who had received the preordered Parental Units just a few days before that restock took place. So there may be some more coming back in a later restock, but the timing is tight.

    Just my thoughts.


    ETA: By the way, did anyone note what were the restock color offerings that came back? I saw Verde, Mars Red, and Taiga, but I was posting on the forums when this went live, and wasn’t closely tracking the Parental Units.
    I think most of the original colors from the preorder were there. Black Halcyon, Night Walk, Taiga, Mars Red, Ursa, Verde, Cloud, Neb Grey, at least one version of Navy, Coyote, Aubergine.

    I'm mildly curious if these weren't just cancelations but maybe spares from any batch production that they do? I could have sworn I remembered reading that it's easier for them to make multiples of a bag instead of just one at a time.
