    But mostly I want an insert for the Field Notebook that doesn't have rings. I use the Circa system and love it, and heartily dislike rings. The insert can be plain, just that sturdy heavy plastic, and I can add my own straps to slip a Circa Junior notebook in. Or I could add cross-ways straps and slip a Clairefontaine top-bound notebook into it. In other words, something that would give me options other than the rings.
    Can you show us pictures of the two Plums?

    Just wondering, as I am a color afficionado.

    Seatle shipping partnerships?

    Howdy, folks. Here's my wish. How about Tom Bihn enters into partnerships with other Seatle companies with similar Made In USA ethic like Filson for the purposes of shipping to overseas places. Would gladly stuff a pair of Filson pants into another Tom Bihn Bag for example.????

    And, as long as we're on the purple train (what? I can dream . . . ) I'd like the return of the old Plum.
    Which old Plum is that? Are you talking about the variations in the Plum dye lots over time (e.g. slightly redder hued Plum around the time I bought my Ristretto for MacBook in Plum/Wasabi; present plum is close to the color of the original Buzz release)? Or are you talking about the Grape ballistic nylon that they ran out of four years ago? (Although, you could still get a few of the bags made in Grape ballistic nylon up through the following year.)

    According the Tom Bihn Twitter page, an RFID-blocking wallet is in the works. I was going to get the Passport Pouch, but a wallet is what I really wanted. Yay!

    Also, would love to see a balistic nylon front pocket card-style wallet....maybe has two or three slots on either side.

    @karenannie you might want to read through the posts in the thread, Large Organizer Pouch: What size should it be?, and also add your comments there. As you'll see, most of the design comments for the last size change of the large organized pouch were from a while ago. However, I do like the fact that the large pouches can handle files and A4 sized paper. There's also a How do you use your Large Organizer Pouch? thread that makes for interesting reading.

    Darcy,

    #1 on my wish list would be a long, narrow zippered organizer about 2"x2"x10".

    Actually, two of them.

    They would fit perfectly into the "dead zones" on either side of my small Brain Cell as it sits clipped into my Empire Builder, spaces which now serve no purpose.

    thanks......

    I'd love a Tom Bihn trunk show. One of each bag, with an assortment of colors represented across the samples, and enough packing cubes and pouches and key straps to get a good idea of what will fit inside what. If Lexington KY was the first stop on the tour, that would be okay by me. :-)

Something like the Packing Cube backpack dimension-size, but instead of backpack straps, put D-rings on the sides, move the zipper opening to the side, so basically wind up with a monster-sized Packing Cube shoulder bag that is designed the same, but sized like the backpack size. That way I can actually remove the strap if I want (or just use the shoulder strap from the Western Flyer when I'm at my destination).
    What if they added d-rings to the existing Packing Cube Backpack? So when it is in packing cube mode there would be two d-rings to attach a shoulder strap but when it is turned inside out it would be backpack mode. I don't have the Packing Cube Backpack so I don't know how elegant it would be in packing cube/shoulder bag mode or if adding d-rings would require extra support but a cube like that could be handy.
