    Oooh, I'd like one of those!

    Given that it's the beginning of the school year I want to reiterate my request (begging?) for a children's line. Nothing too extenstive, just the basics. But here in NYC, it's crazy how much stuff these kids need to carry--and I'm just talking about the little guys. My Kindergartner is loaded down some days. And the typical "little kid" backpack is, how to put it...condescending. Covered in cartoons and all sorts of nonsense. Or they can be cute, but very short on design. What I'm looking for is a kid's line with the Bihn attention to detail. Some possible items:

    - Backpack - I think it would need to be a max of 15" in length and would need 2 straps (not a sling). A removable wet pocket would be cool for swim trunks and, er, accidents. Also, a cell phone pouch built in. So many kids have them, but there are also so many rules about stowing them during school day.
    - Lunch bag - great for adults too, just a smaller version for kids.
    - The ability to personalize or otherwise permanently (but nicely) label this stuff would be great, too. Or an area to write "If lost, etc."
    - Emergency whistle to include in backpack.


    Also, would it be possible to make a dyneema poncho that is very water resistant if not waterproof? I think that would be cool.

    The Cardinal / Hemp is a stunning combination. The dark in the weave works beautifully with the Cardinal. I also like the weight of the Hemp with the ballistic. Of course, I have an Olive Cordura / Cork Imago too...

    Insulated Packing cubes

    19" 2 Rack unit brain cell and a bag that can carry it

    A slightly smaller or different shaped organizer cube to fit in the top front pocket of the brain bag.

    A small bag that can connect to the brain cell to make it a better stand-alone bag. I like traveling with the Brain Bag as a carryon, and the Brain Cell as my personal bag, but on its own the Brain Cell doesn't hold as much stuff as I'd like, and you can't zip any of the pockets closed.

I really love the hemp on this bag, and am thinking of swapping my new Imago in Navy/Cork for a Cardinal/Hemp Imago -- but only because I already have an Imago in Hunter Green/Cork already. Otherwise the Navy/Cork would win. But that hemp…

    I'm sure you're right, moriond. When has TB done anything that doesn't look nice!??

    However, looking at it, I just don't like it much, and living in the UK the shipping is too expensive to take the chance...

And then I posted in the mid-January teaser thread that Darcy posted about new products coming out on Monday and Tuesday:

    Sad to say, I can't remember whether the regular size Shop Bags were offered in Iberian. I have this in Solar from earlier times.

    Is "regular" a now discontinued size between small and large? or are you referring to the small one.

    I've recently purchased a small shop bag and am getting heaps of use out of it. I would not buy a large one because it would be too heavy for me once filled.

    @ceepee I still use my Lux (the Swift predecessor -- but with solid color zipped pockets) in those instances where I don't want see through pockets. Like dorayme, I know what you mean, though.

    @dorayme, I can't recall whether the small shop bag came in Iberian. I remember when I asked whether there would be a regular size shop bag in Iberian:

    ceepee, that's what organizer pouches, clips and o-rings are for. Unlimited, multi-sized Dyneema, Clear, Cordura or Ballistic pockets at your disposal! Just kidding, I get what you are saying. I just had to go there.

    How about organizer pouches with a gusset?
