    Big Sprout?

    Any news on the progress of a bigger Sprout? I'm going to Europe in March and sure would love one.

    Well, last we heard, the Big Sprout won't be happening, but there will be a new backpack with a similar function (streamlined/small) coming out in Feb/March codenamed Muse.

    I love the DLBP as a more streamlined backpack.

    Some teasers from the TB Crew would be pretty awesome.

    Aw man, I must have missed that bit of news. I know Muse was projected for March, but didn't realize it would have a similar function of the 'Big' Sprout. Time to square away those pennies!

    But yes... a teaser would be great!

    Would be nice like to know if the MUSE is another packable backpack or a regular one with padded shoulder straps. Been wanting a new S25, so perhaps will hold off.

    Ask and you shall receive! (Sometimes, anyway.) I did get a chance to test the Muse late last year. It's such a great small backpack for urban use -- perfect for an evening out to dinner and an art walk.

    I also took it on a rainy and snowy day hike amongst the larches....

    Straps will be padded. It's significantly smaller than the S25, though.

    Many thanks!!!

    Larger than the S19? Organization of any kind?

    No more hints! For now, anyway. March (or possibly April) is still little ways away

    I will say there's a lot that's new about this bag.

    Looks like it's 1050 ballistic. Hopefully around 18 inches in length so it would be longer than the S19.

    I really wonder how this will differ from the DLBP. I love how the DLPB is streamlined, clean and smaller. Large backpacks make me look like a kid. (Being short will do that to you.)

    Can't fault a guy for trying. Big Sprout?

    I only ask because much of the time my S25 is too much bag and the ancient S19 I bought used a million years ago just seem tiny on my 5'10" 225# frame. Hoping for something in between....but organization is a necessity.

    Bite your tongue! Those of us who can just manage to fit the Sprout on ourselves, but not always fit our stuff inside it, are hoping for something smaller than the S19 but larger than the Sprout.

    I'm really really hoping that the Muse is the small around-town-with-a-camera backpack I've been searching for all these years (by adding a camera insert to it, of course.)
