    My Lux came and it's beautiful. The kiwi/black goes well with my kiwi/blue/steel Imago.
    I'm still hoping for a Tom Bihn small backback -with a place for waterbottles- that will hold everything. My Brainbag will do that but I'm only 5' and it's too big to carry daily.
    Is there any possibility of one in the future?

    I'm still hoping for a small women's backpack with a place for waterbottles. In the meantime I just ordered the lux to use with my imago.

    Finally- I've been waiting for a smaller backpack. Please tell me it has an outside pocket for a water bottle. That's an important feature for me on my next backpack and it's what's kept me from buying the Smart Alec.

    I may be in the minority but I like the 2 colors of my Imago and wouldn't mind that on a backpack.
    Has the price been decided on yet?

    I'd need something purple/lavender/pink for my girls... Not sure we'd ever see a Pink Bihn Bag!

    Regards color-ways for the Ado: still working on that. We'll, as usual, offer something conservative
    The Ado is a re-release/re-tweak of an old pack we made called the Kid's Pack. We're adding more organizer pockets (inside the front pouch), another small zipper pocket (not shown on Alex's pack), and curved/padded shoulder straps.
    The pack has a drawstring opening (making it "old") and it's sized specifically to fit a generic three-ring binder (making it "school"); there's a pocket in the flap and it's back/bottom are padded.
    Pretty simple, not nearly as tricked out as say the Brain Bag.

    I'll be attempting to add one or two more new backpacks in 2007 - stay tuned!

    Doh! I was hoping for more closer to the Limpet style... well, I guess we'll all have to wait to see the real thing at any rate...

    My answer is simple. Put Cork on it!
    If the design lends itself to two colors then by all means. If we can get a little picture or two I am sure that the question would be much easier to answer.
    Are you going to get a cyan to go with that magenta? (sorry, bad print humor)

    We're still deciding if the Ado should be one or two colors. Thoughts?

    BTW: We're still searching for an attractive magenta. It's been difficult thus far.
    Where would the 2 colors be? The flap one color and the rest of the body another another color (I don't like that much, and besides it already exist in the Smart Alec) or an outside color and a different inside color such as in The Cafe Bag, The Imago, the Ego and other briefcase style Tom Bihn bags.

    I vote for different outer/inner color but... my Brain Bag is one color and I can find things just fine.

    Alex (Tom's nephew) bag has contrasting color on the zipper's pocket, it is not much to my taste as it seems to advertise where to open the pocket, not something one's want on a backpack used everyday on buses, trains etc...

    I saw the same thing on the picture of the prototype padded pouch and I do not like it either.

    A simple black zipper with nice black contour fabric and color for the body of the pouch is better by itself or within any bag. That is what make the Zephyr and the Aeronaute in Grape and Steel so stunning. The same can be said about the Brain Bag.
