    Hi!

    Just wondering when those new colors might appear on the ID's page (in the color option menu). Also, will you have new pictures?

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Who do I have to bribe to sneak a Charcoal/Silver/Sapphire in there?

    The batch of ID's coming up from the factory now came in the following colors:

    Black/Black/Steel
    Black/Black/Plaid
    Black/Crimson/Steel
    Black/Charcoal/Steel
    Black/Charcoal/Wasabi
    Black/Silver/Sapphire

    We will have the same colors in the next batch, with the addition of Black/Grape/Wasabi.

    Any news on IDs in other-than-black, or yellow fabrics?

    Siv,

    I talked with your cousin Ara twice! And the order did ship out already.

    Tom, I just ordered my ID but not sure if it has been delivered yet. If it was still in your shop then that would be unltra convenient for all!

    It's black/black/plaid ordered by my cousin Ara.

    If it has already left then don't worry as I live in Malaysia at the moment and it'll be quite a large cost to ship it back and forth (I'm visiting my cousin in NY and am taking the opportunity to save on the shipping!)

    Seems like the "loop" of webbing would be so big & loose that while it might keep your ID from falling off the roll aboard, it would likely slide seriously off to one side or the other.
    As I wrote on a different thread: "the quest for the perfect roll-aboard strap has been quixotic. Because roll-aboard luggage comes with many different widths of handle, we need something that would accomodate them all. So far everything we've come up with has looked like an after-thought. Bulk, expensive, plastic buckles, webbing, velcro, it all catches on clothing and scratches bare skin when you use the bag on your shoulder or hip."
    Does that make sense? Should we modify your ID anyway to see if I'm right?

    Can the back strap on the ID (if fully tightened) double as a strap/loop for a roll-aboard?

    Would it be possible to add a second set loops on the back of the ID a little higher than the back strap loops to fulfill this purpose? Having an optional/removable strap would be cool and only adds a couple of loops to the bag...

    We've always wanted to add yellow to our color pallete, but the problem has been this: the nylon fabric we use is translucent when it is un-dyed and pretty much translucent when dyed a very light color like yellow or silver (yellow actually worse than silver), to the point that you can read a newspaper through the fabric!
    This is bad because people can see what's in your bag AND you can see the seam allowances too, which just looks like crap frankly.
    That all being said, we are just now bringing in fabric from a new supplier (from Korea) and are hoping that at some point they can work with us to produce our fabric with a pigmented coating, which is the only way to make light colors opaque in this fabric.
    Some other manufacturers use polyester instead of nylon, which tends to be opaque on its own; we use nylon because a nylon backpack or bag will substantially outlast a polyester one.

    Regarding a strap/loop for a roll-aboard: we haven't found an elegant way to incorporate that into our designs - they all look like after-thoughts so far, but we'll keep working!

    While I'm dreaming aloud, then, I think my perfect ID would be charcoal (or titanium) with a primary yellow accent and interior. Please?

    Oh, and I love the idea in the Eclipse thread of a back strap for use with rolling luggage. I'm guessing the ID won't be seeing any modifications for a while, though.

    Interesting!

    Maybe we'll make a couple like that in the next batch of ID's we make (about three months from now.)

    Titanium is only used for the Mitre but Charocal/Sapphire or Charcoal/Crimson sound good.

    Charcoal/Titanium/Sapphire? I just think a gray would look professional while making it easier to pick out from conference room and overhead compartment bag herds.

    Not likely. What colors were you thinking of?

    Jen - I'm sorry! It looks like we actually have a small quantity of the Black/Silver/Periwinkle color. Maybe about three of them. You can order them off the ID page.
