    Heart Eyes Oh my goodness. I LOVE the alphaviolet/viridian color combination, I'm a weirdo who wears a lot of black and grey, but likes bright accessories, and purple and teal is a color combination I've always been drawn to. I'm seriously going to have to buy pretty much anything you make in it.

    I'm also torn, because I loved my Large Cafe Bag in combination with the Freudian Slip, but I'm only 5'2, and the orientation (a little too long) and weight bothered me. I had gotten a medium cafe bag in Plum to see if I would like that better, but without the FS I felt like it was lacking, and I returned it and got a Co-Pilot instead. I love the Co-Pilot, and my son stole the Large Cafe Bag (I was totally surprised by how much he likes it, but pleased that it would get use), so I figured that I was done for now. I should have known!!! I think I'm already sold on another MCB in alphaviolet/viridian, along with a medium FS, and I'll probably be getting a Luminary and Cubelets too. Oh boy. If you decide to make the CP in that combo, I'm a goner.

    @tebnewyork, Grass is close to Kelly but lighter/brighter colored

    That's a Kelly Medium Cafe Bag with a Grass swatch laid against it. To the right are Dawn (bluish) and Cloud to the left. The color is off for Dawn -- it's lighter.

    Also, I assume the Pilots are going to be made in their existing fabrics (ballistic and Halcyon) for now?
    @bchaplin,

    These combinations are available for the Cafe Bags with an interior color option that is different from Halcyon. I don't think Halcyon is going away. Think of these as brightly colored interior versions instead of Parapack

    ETA: I also predict that @sturbridge will really like this bag. It's really tailored well for petite body builds.
    Oh this is exactly what I wanted to hear - I've been either squishing stuff into a Sprout, or filling up an S19 with room to spare, and while my S19 is a great bag it is often just too large for days when all I need is camera, water bottle, wallet, and a few snacks. I would loooooooooooooove to see pictures!

    I am also debating if I can finagle a way to make a trip down to the TB store to pick one up in person when they come out, because while I will probably end up with a Cloud Luminary, I really really really want to see that Alphaviolet in person!

    @kkintea,

    I think there may be a video or pre-prepared blog post with more detail? That would probably work better than my color balance skills. (I'll look for one first)

    I LOVE the new fabrics and colors.

    I'm not a backpack girl, so neither of the new bags calls me (today), so my wallet is safe. But I'm sure there are a ton of kids and adults who are going to go nuts for those backpacks. Cool design. Cooler colors.

    I can see why @bchaplin is asking though, the In Production Synapses are also lined with the new fabrics rather than Halcyon. I hope it's not going away Frown

    I see lighting/monitor differences between the stock photos and your picture. I think it would be helpful to see them side by side 'in person' rather than 'professional' grade.

    OK, but I think that if you look at the product pages for the Cubelet you may get a better idea. @Ilkyway may have some other color shots. I'm not getting the luminescent quality of the new fabric right in these pictures.

    A lot of interesting stuff! I particularly like the new first/second aid accessories. I'm not sure how it would work, but maybe some of them could serve as stand-alone mini kits for everyday.

    Excited about the new fabric. For sure, it will be a good substitute for the existing cordura. I like the Black and Deep Blue exteriors and Dawn and Cloud interiors, but some of the others are too bright for me. But maybe when I see more photos and have time to take it all in some of the colors will grow on me.

    And so much new stuff! Will take time later to watch all the videos again and read the moderators' reviews.

    Though one small comment: After seeing a few of these videos, I'm beginning to get a bit jealous of the beautiful, hipster lifestyles of whoever models all this Tom Bihn gear. *MY* workplace doesn't offer strawberry-infused water. Just saying.

    My wallet is safe but I am happy to see some new colors coming in. I really hope Tom Bihn will start to make the exterior/outside colors in these brighter colors, and not just use them for the insides. I am happy you filled the niche for people wanting smaller versions of comparable bags you already have. But I must be honest, you haven't come out with anything to replace the gapping hole left when you retired the Little Swift. Not everyone wants a backpack or messenger style bag.

    Yes, and I think the new productions are geared up for all the new fabrics because they are new -- I'm certainly hoping that Halcyon is not going away. Maybe Darcy can comment.
