    Wishes GRANTED in 2016

    Granted Wishes

    In the gratitude-expressing spirit of the new year, I feel happy to realise that in 2016 Tom Bihn fulfilled a couple of my TB wishes when it:

    - developed Black Halcyon, which may just be the ultimate exterior fabric for me;

    - introduced Island as a regular interior Halcyon colour, and started offering it as a lining in a couple of bags that interest me;

    - produced Upper and Lower Modular Pockets in Original Halcyon for my 'OH' Smart Alec;

    - produced the Side Effect in my dream combination, Black Halcyon with an Ultraviolet lining; and

    - introduced the smaller Snake Charmer.

    What about your wishes in 2016?

    Other TB Things for Which I'm Grateful

    - That Tom Bihn is a company that, as I understand it, strives to be an ethical employer and producer, and also a good corporate citizen by giving back to the broader community.

    - The participatory elements of the Forum, including the majority-voting process for the new interior Halcyon colour and the interactive hints in the prelude to the Hero's journey launch.

    - Some great posts by members of the Forum. A couple that spring to mind are the 'How Many ...' games and some stunning photo travelogues, including those by Mr Brown and NWHikergal (and others!).

    - The wonderful quality of TB gear that also comes with a lifetime guarantee, TB's fabulously responsive and personal customer service, and the way that the company fosters connections between all staff and its customers.

    I wished for a bigger more organized SE, and the SK is just perfect. I'm hoping for more color combinations in the future. And maybe, maybe just a half inch longer (to hold a folded 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper).

    I wished for a smaller TT, and then I decided I liked the bigger one better. I have to be careful what I wish for. I think my perfect TT would be halfway between the small and large.

    I wished for a smaller Snake Charmer, too. Love the new sizes.

    And I'm grateful for the amazing quality of workmanship from the sewers and designers, and the amazing quality of TB's customer support.

    I wished for the return of Sitka, and loaded up on emerald goodies during the debut in November.

    The development of the Side Kick was my wish/request come true from Tom Bihn for 2016. I'd wanted a Side Effect that was stretched to fit an iPad Mini, while still having enough space to carry other things. The Side Kick is it.

    Now that I've carried a loaded Side Kick I also understand why the strap had to be wider. Between the extra capacity of the side Kick and the density of my EDC items my regular load-out is over 2.5 kg (about 5.5 pounds). Deciding whether that's a touch heavy is a problem I'm totally okay with having.
