    Cafe Bag/New Colors question

    Do we have any idea when the new Cordura colors will be available, and if they will make it to the Cafe Bags soon? I'm thinking of picking up a Cafe Bag now, but I'll kick myself if a new color comes out 3 days after I place my order. :-)

    ETA: Hold up, I have confused myself. The Cafe Bags are Cordura, but it's ballistic nylon that's coming in new colors? Help!

      Yes -- it's new 1050d ballistic nylon colors that we will soon announce. No new Cordura colors are planned.
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

      Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

        Thanks for straightening me out, Darcy!

        And backpack, Conifer is very tempting. I wish there was a swatch pack that we could order so that we could see the fabrics in person before making bag selections.

          When I am unsure about a color, I do the next best thing, order the Mini Organizer Pouch in that color.

          For an investment that is lower that what a swatch pack would cost, I get to experience the new color, if I love it, I use it and order more item in that color, if I am not thrilled by it, the Mini Organizer Pouch is used to store something I need to keep around but not under my nose which means inside my Tom Bihn Bags.

          Alternatively, it could be given out to a friend or family member with something inside such as a gift card, a local public transport electronic card with some trip money in it, a mini first aid kit, mini sewing kit, emergency manicurel kit, emergency bike tire repair kit....

          The possibilities are endless.

            That's a good idea. I am working up an accessory order now, so your advice comes at the perfect time!
