Both Christina and I think that the sample swatch of Sitka is slightly darker -- in her words, Sitka-ish, just as we referred to the new Solaris as Solar-ish in the pre-debut discussions. But, we never really had a discussion about this, because the samples came in March, when everyone was on lockdown from Covid-19, and the TB folks were all geared up for mask-making, so I don't know what the status of this is. I think that it's close enough in color that everyone who loved Sitka will also love this, but that's just my impression YMMV. Maybe @Darcy can address this and tell us when new products might appear, 'cause I really don't know any details.

    Thank you, moriond. Looking forward to hearing more from Darcy in the near future. Sitka is one of my absolute favorites.

    Will the Luminary 15 be available in some of the newer colors -- the wonderful coyote 525, or wilderness, or ursa -- sometime this year?

    Hi @azlet,

    I think @Darcy answered your question in this post (#2206, dated 03-05-2020), earlier in this thread. as far as I know, these plans haven’t changed, and the Luminary 15 is on the list of bags to be made relatively quickly as part of the planned restock in their recent blog post outlining the order in which this will get done.

    I’ll excerpt the part of Darcy’s reply that deals specifically with the Luminary 15

    The Luminary 15-Ursa Brown 525 Ballistic/Island 210 Ballistic
    The Luminary 15-Wilderness Green 525 Ballistic/Coyote 210 Ballistic
    The Luminary 15-Coyote 525 Ballistic/Cloud 210 Ballistic
    The Luminary 15-Constellation Blue 525 Ballistic/Cloud 210
    HTH

    ETA:Note that thé quoted reply was specifically addressing your question about the new color combinations; this wasn’t meant to imply these were the only colors they were planning to make for the Luminary 15

    Can't wait to see Sitka!

    On another color note, can someone compare the colors Cloud and NW Sky for me?

    Heads up: looks like a lot of random stuff is showing as available today in small quantities... maybe the returns have caught up.

    ETA: Including some Guide's Editions

    I have been regretting not getting a Nordic/UV MB before they were gone. While browsing this morning I spotted “in stock” and quickly pounced. Now the added anticipation while waiting for my preorder!

    @Darcy - since the new colours are going up each day in sequence, is there a way to hold an order so that if people want a couple colours they all ship at once...? Or do you think you have enough that just waiting until Friday is fine?
    Having different colours is great to differentiate within a family and/or by day... thanks Smilie

    @Darcy I just saw that the SG is now called Shadow Guide V1 and is in production... And the padded hip belt shows up as Shadow Guide V1 & V2 padded hip belt. Does that mean we can expect to see that smaller Shadow Guide soon (I assume V2 is the smaller size)?

    The way it'll work is: each day, there will be one S/M color offered and one M/L color offered. Basically, the thing that makes it possible for our shipping crew of two people to ship thousands upon thousands of face masks is for there to be one color in each size. We're working on a system that may allow us to hold orders by request, but it's not quite ready yet and manually holding orders isn't possible right now because it's not systemized. So, if someone wants Light Blue and Purple masks, for example, they'll need to place two separate orders on Monday and Wednesday that'll ship out separately. We know this isn't ideal (hopefully that shipping is $4 helps a bit!) but still wanted to offer these colors while we can.

    Yes, the Shadow Guide V2 will be coming soon-ish, and it will include the smaller size. Hope to share more on that soon.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

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

    That makes sense, thanks!

    And woot! for the smaller SG!

    It did go 404... perhaps it wasn't supposed to be live when I found it (!)...usually I get an email after a new blog post and don't recall seeing one, so it might have been posted early as an oooops.

    Basically, it was as alluded to above, one colour S/M and one colour M/L each day next week. The S/M were the ones in newer colours & there was a pic... a red, green, purple, light blue, and I forget the 5th... the M/L were the black and dark navy I think.
