    An all clear (front and back), Large Pouch!

    I use the Large Pouch to store each year's Journal, after I remove the pages from the FJN.

    I like to make a D.I.Y cover for it and it would be nice if I could see both sides of the cover.

    I also draw and color on translucent paper, I would be able to use the All Clear Pouch to protect or even display the images I color.

    It would be lovely if some of the All Clear Pouches had grommets (the same as the Field Journal Notebook Organizational Inserts on two sides. 3 or 4 on the longest side, to insert into a letter/A4 binder and 2 at the top to hang vertically.

    I don't want to use PCV because it is harmful to the environment and smells.


    It may sound like a wacky idea and I may have my wish on April 1, oversized and topped with a Floculent border. Smilie

    By the way, I would also be so happy with an Halcyon or Aether trench coat with a matching rain hat. Smilie

    I can't say enough about how great the Luminary is. I stopped using it during the extreme cold snap because I was wearing SO many layers, but reclaimed it yesterday for a departmental retreat. It was so thin and easy to tote, as we were moving around the room a lot. Because I work in academia, a lot of people had huge backpacks, and I really appreciated how sleek the Luminary was. It stands up straight, unlike the larger packs that slump over; less chance that it would be accidentally stepped on in the crowded room. (I didn't have a laptop with me, and that might have changed my choice of bags, but it did hold my winter gear, Travel Cubelet, keys, phone, two A5 notebooks, and mug.)

    My wish: Please make the Luminary in black with a pretty interior color, like Canyon or Dawn. (not Grass... not Grass... not Grass). I think a black version would be perfect for circumstances where I want to be a tiny bit more formal, as this backpack is already so stylish.

    Enthusiastically seconding. In fact, I was just thinking similar the other day, and still use an ancient soft nylon day planner case (despite the now-unnecessary binder rings) to carry miscellany because the clamshell/pouch configuration is so handy. The Spiff Kit comes really close, but the same-side zipper placement (though ideal for hanging) doesn't work as part of an EDC: with the First/Second Aid Pouches's opposite-side zippers, you can access both sides of contents of the Pouch without ever having to remove the Pouch from your bag. Plus, when you do take the Pouch out (handy handle), the natural inclination is to reach for zippers on the outer edge rather than the inner. I'd be all over a non-Aid outer-edge zipper Aid Pouch/Spiff Kit hybrid.

    ETA: Oh, and I'd love a revival of ballistic COWs.

    It thought so, too, until I actually put them next to each other. They clash a bit.

    night flight in black halcyon!
    black ballistic and original halcyon are so so close, but just not quite right.

    i don't even care what color halcyon the interior is. they're all nice.
    i mean, i think wasabi's the worst, but my small cafe bag has a wasabi interior, and i don't mind.

    Don't get me wrong. I love both canyon and coyote, a LOT. But I prefer a brighter color as a contrast to the neutral earth tones.

    I would like to see something like canyon or coyote in 525 externally, then use it on the Pilot or Stowaway or even better a new but similar to pilot 15L(ish) design.

    PCSB with inside pockets like the Side Kick. Been wishing/ asking for this several years now.
