    Thank you so much for your commitment to quality craftsmanship! I especially appreciate the fact that while TB has a lifetime warranty against defective workmanship, it's uncommon for customers to have to rely on it (unlike some companies I've had experience with).

      I keep eyeballing the Co-Pilot page and restraining myself from ordering one just because they're going out of production for a while. Must. Wait. For June "new product" announcements...

        I have to say - I am liking the no backorders look of the products website. It is very straightforward now to look and see exactly what is available and what is not, and I know exactly what I can order right now. Somehow eliminating that "pending" item list feels good. Not that I won't be happy to see the items back in stock!

          News!

          The Ristretto for iPad is once again available for order in Black/Iberian.

          The Aeronaut is back in stock in Black/Steel (it's the only color in stock as of right now and will likely be on backorder again soon, so we recommend ordering now if you've been thinking about doing so…)

            ...waiting patiently for the small cafe bags to come bag in stock. I'm kicking myself for not ordering one back in the day when just about every color was in stock! I need something a little smaller than a Little Swift to keep my project du jour and YSS from being a complete mess when I (gasp) have a day off and want to tote my knitting with me.

              Back in stock!

              Travel Stuff Sacks, all sizes and colors

              Shop Bag, Large in Black, Steel, Solar, Nordic, Wasabi, Iberian

              Shop Bag, Small in Black, Steel, Solar, Nordic, Wasabi, Iberian, Ultraviolet

              Travel Tray, Nordic and Black

              Packing Cube Backpack (Aeronaut) in Black and Nordic

              Packing Cube Backpack (Tri-Star/Western Flyer) in Black and Nordic

              *Note on the Nordic and Black offerings: as I mentioned in another thread, we were happily overwhelmed and surprised by the demand for Black and Nordic Packing Cube Backpacks, Travel Trays, and Packing Cube Shoulder Bags. When we discovered that not only had we sold out but actually oversold some of those offerings, we decided to remove them and the others from the website until we could be 100% sure we'd filled all backorders and everyone who ordered and was promised a Nordic or Black accessory received one. The bags we oversold? We made new cuts/batches of those, filled the backorders (or will very soon) and the extras are in stock now. I realize this might be frustrating for some who wanted to order these bags when they were originally made available but missed out. I hope the chance to do so now makes up for that frustration! When this round of Black and Nordic accessories are sold out, they'll be gone for good.

                  That's right -- Black and Nordic are 400d Dyneema/nylon.

                    Darcy, any update on the new brain bag? I just ordered some Nordic items, and I plan on ordering a brain bag, but I was hoping I could get the order all in one batch to save on shipping. Any eta for the bag? Or is this a secret like the A30? Haha thanks for any info you can share!

                      The updated Brain Bag will be in the works soon, but it's not yet available for pre-order and likely won't be for at least another month or two, and our current system won't let us hold an order for in stock items so that pre-order items could be added at a later date. Sorry. :/

                        Ah gotcha. Thanks! I decided to just suck it up and pay the extra shipping when I get to it. The Nordic is worth it

                          Argh! Was really hoping to add a shoulder bag in Black D to my order today but see it's only backpacks. There are so many places that don't allow 'backpack' size bags anymore due to security; a shoulder/packing cube combo in 400D would have been awesome. Anyone there sew and take bribes??

                            @Darcy

                            Are the large and small shop bags also 400d in Nordic and Black?

                            Thanks

                              @tpnl AFAIK black and nordic only come in 400d, so I'm thinking yes.

                              Oh dear - a bunch of dyneema items just fell into my shopping cart... now I'll finally get to find out what all the Nordic fuss was about

                                Thrilled that I was able to add a Nordic Travel Tray to my previously placed order. Thanks for the heads up that they are back in stock. My order included a Brain Bag, which I just now am reading will be updated soon. What are those updates? Or is that top secret? Wondering if I'm better off waiting...
