    Hey, the kitties need a bug out bag too! Or an alternate nesting place. Just sayin'. I have cats, no dog, and one Skookum Dog Duffle. Think outside the ....er..... box!

      All the bags I have purchased recently (A30, Co-Pilot, SE) have been aubergine/wasabi - it's the perfect combo for me - they are two of my favorite colors and they go with most of my wardrobe.

      That being said... lately I have found myself ogling burnt orange, which is problematic when you live in Texas and are NOT a UT alum. But a burnt orange/wasabi Side Effect? That would fill in most of the remaining gaps in my small bag needs. I would buy that without thinking twice.

        At our house, every TB bag is a cat product if we're not careful. When I get a shipment, I just leave the box on the floor for a few days and everyone is happy!

          The burnt orange is nice, but having worked previously at A&M, I understand your dilemma :-) It would look nice with the aubergine, though.

            This is precisely my dilemma - aubergine and burnt orange are a great combo, but I am a former employee of U of Houston as well as getting my graduate degrees there. And red is NOT a good color for me. I will probably give in to my burnt orange craving and spend many months answering the inevitable, "Oh, did you go to UT?" questions. Alternatively, I could move.

              You'll need a T shirt with special graphics: NO, I DID NOT GO TO UT!
              The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

                FYI that the forum enablers got a shout out from Luke the bag guru when he replied to me to confirm that he was adding the aubergine SE to my order. Good job all around! :-)

                    Aren't you glad you succumbed? Isn't it beautiful? Now that fall is arriving, slowly but surely in the Pacific NW, it is my EDC for the season. I'm finding that the color really works with everything I wear.

                      No, it's really ugly. No, it's really ugly. No, it's really ugly.

                      How many times will I have to say that to convince myself?

                        Yes, I am glad! It's now my EDC as well, along with an MCB for my laptop and other work stuff I had been using just the MCB, but it's a bit large, so I like having something small that I can carry on its own or put in the other bag. And the aubergine is SO pretty :-)

                            The only thing I would change about the SE is - aside from the Green thing - is to put the Tom Bihn logo tape on the corner like the 3DFOP - or maybe a Tom Bihn logo patch....you can never own enough Tom Bihn signage....
                            never skate faster than your guardian angel can fly....black and gold til I'm dead and cold....
                            be nice - until it's time to not be nice.......what separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize...
