    I am very impressed: we new the Aeronout 30 was coming and looks familiar and glorios. I think it might be the right travelbag for my girls. AND there is the duffel: it has written camera bag all over it (for me). Not a camera bag with which I would go out for a long walk in the nature but we have to take pictures of our cattle ever so often and this is a nice camera bag for the car.
    And I just plane love the stuff sacks. Dirty and clean... problem solved and even color-coded pulls! AND a coin-wallet! It is small, it is cute and it will be very useful for us Euroniens anyway.

    I am not sure about the backpack jet but that is just because I have so gourges backpacks from Tom Bihn that the competition is quite hight there... but to be honest I maybe just tell me this so I do not end up buying ALL the new stuff at once.

    Thank you Tom Bihn for:
    1. Making this in such a fun event.
    2. Doing bags that own up and exceeds the build up expectations.
    3. Mirroring in the new bags some of the bags/features your customers had asked for.
    4. Taking your time to get this right and being on time at once. I have seen so many promises in and out of the Internet made and broken that it still amazes me that you keep yours even so I have seen it so many times now.

    Never had so much fun in making my credit-card sweat a little.

        Alas I'm not in the US long enough for a TB order. OTOH I'm collecting a previous order plus a forum "trade" (a bag for a TB voucher), so I'm getting my money's worth out of the trip!
        Collections:
        Work EDC: SE + S19
        Leisure: SCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
        Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, with SE/SCB
        General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
        Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
        Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

                I have to admit, I am salivating a little at that Daylight Backpack! I can totally see using that for knitting! And for day trips where I don't want to have a heavy load. My back is not a happy camper at all these days. Can I have a Synapse 19 and the new pack at the same time? Will I always be torn over which one to carry? Oh! First world problems!

                    I have an S19 too, but got the Daylight for the heck of it. I liked the PCBP-ish design coupled with slight tapering at the top. (It looks kinda retro, especially in orange) I also felt it would be a nice change on days where I want to dunk everything in a light sack. Aaand, unlike most day packs, this has a /usefully/ large front pocket. (Cf Eastpak.)

                    But I may just be justifying my purchase to myself *coughs*

                          I read most of this thread already knowing the happy ending--I didn't have internet access for the 24 hours surrounding the releases--but I've enjoyed its excitement, humor, and camaraderie so much. I really like the way eWalker's clocks punctuate the excitement, drawing the reader's awareness back to the passage of time and the increasing suspense. I was sorry to miss the fun of the anticipation, but I think the instant gratification of reading this all in one sitting makes up for it nicely!

                            It´s was fun indeed!! I was doing my medical check up while making the countdown, if the hospital had a psychiatric division, I would get myself in trouble!!
                            So much to catch up!

                              Everyone - it looks like for the 5 new TB bag unveilings, we broke a record for people on the TB website. From the stats at the bottom of the forum page:

                              Most users ever online was 14,476, 07-01-2014 at 08:16 PM.

                              It's like the line-ups at the Apple Store when new iPhones come out - except virtual!

                              Cheers!

                                Cool! I did wonder whether we would crash the website!! Hope Tom Bihners feel the love.
