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.
    I well appreciate it adds complexity, but do hope that new colour mask orders can in some way be held and grouped for shipping as costs outside of USA are significantly higher than $4. The Tom Bihn masks are great design and very happy to support the company and also the mask donations, and a few new colours would be wonderful. But no way to justify shipping cost of separate daily orders.

    Mask update! We've donated over 55,000 masks and have made over 165,000 masks. Thank you to all of you for your support; we literally couldn't have done this without you.

    I also want to recognize how our entire crew has rallied around what has been a monumental shift; over the course of the last three months, we have reorganized our business operations, manufacturing, shipping, customer service around a totally new product (cloth face masks). If you had told me five months ago that we would have accomplished what we've accomplished in these three months, I would have thought you were nuts! It's pretty amazing how our crew has adapted to these changes. And now we're adapting to yet another change; continuing our effort to make reusable cloth face masks *and* pre-orders *and* bags for stock. Interestingly, when new people have found our company because we're making masks, they have tended to assume we are a large business; when we tell them there's less than 50 of us, they are rather shocked, which we take in as a compliment and as recognition of the efforts of our crew Smilie

    Thanks to all of you for your continued support and for being here, especially during these difficult times.

    While my head is quite small, the cap, the peninsula that is my nose forces me to wear the bigger size, otherwise, it doesn't go all the way down to the chin.

    The really hot weather makes the black color of my present M/L masks difficult to deal with, because they attract heat.

    Also keep us posted when you make all cotton ones!

    Thank you so very, very, very, very, exponentially very much for making and donating such a great and essential product!

    Also thank you for allowing hybrid bag and masks orders. Smilie
    I am not sure if we'll be able to make M/L masks in those colors anytime soon, but your request is noted for the future Smilie There will be a new mid-blue in M/L at some point in the next month!

    See above; we expect to have a M/L option in a very nice new mid-blue sometime in the next month. Smilie

    I hear you and, at the same time, am sorry to say that it's just not within our capabilities right now to hold orders for mask colors. Sorry about that. On the bright side, there will be more mask options and colors in the future, as well as some new pre-order opportunities and they may align schedule-wise, fate willing Smilie

    Looks like the Pilot's been updated with the four new 525d ballistic colors. Coming late-Julyish, according to the newest blog post.

    EDIT: The Cadet has been updated as well.

    The Purple masks are very nice. Am I correct in thinking this is not actually a color that's been used in bags?

    Does anyone know if there are any plans on making ghost whale pouches in the new 525d ballistic colors?

    They'll eventually show up, but the OPs are made from scraps, so they have to accumulate enough scraps from the new colours and then work them into the next GW production run. With the production schedule all topsy-turvey from the pandemic, it may take a while...

    Thanks, good to know! Can't wait to get my hands on a 525d coyote ghost whale, I really don't like 210 as a pouch fabric, I've decided.

    Sorry for the double post, but I was wondering-with 1050d ballistic being phased out, what's going to happen to stuff like the pocket pouch, q kit or ballistic organizer pouches?

    I don't know that TB has said anything in particular... to me, none of those seem to structurally *require* 1050, so I would assume they would eventually migrate to the 525 ballistic scraps... the only one I would slightly question would be the larger Q-Kit (small) but even that feels like it would be fine in 525... maybe @Darcy will share Smilie

    Has there been a discussion of a new color, “Acuity 200 Halcyon”?

    First I've heard of it, fantastic catch. I did a quick google search and it turns out that the travel stuff sacks have them listed as a color option, alongside Sitka. No pictures yet of either, though.

    EDIT: The 3D organizer cubes (fabric and clear) also have both Acuity and Sitka as a color option, and the Everyday Cubelet actually seems to have a picture of it! Looks like it's going to be a very, very light blue. Maybe a replacement/alternative to Northwest Sky as an interior color?

    Oohhh! I missed the Everyday Cubelet! That’s pretty! Thanks, Skirata44!

    Nice spotting that! I'll post more about it tomorrow... in the meantime, here's the Every Day Cubelet in Acuity. It is indeed a new 200d Halcyon color.
