    2018 Wish List

    Then the clear pouch in front is set up like the wallet with the clear front for id and separators for other cards and cash.
    Bonus if we could figure a coin pouch option that wouldn’t make it unwieldy 2018 Wish List

    Colors would be ultraviolet, wasabi and island (so it would match my alien travel buddy.)

    (While I’m at it I might need a pouch for alien to secure him!)

    I'm so with you! I have the clear organizer wallet and the small double organizer pouch and neither work well. The DOP is too large and the separators in the COW don't work. At all. Coins everywhere makes life messy.

    I think it's time the TB Crew comes up with something brilliant, as they tend to do.

    Since I have no alien buddy, I'm not with you here. My color vote would be anything earth tone or neutral besides boring black.

    Backpackless Aeronaut in full halcyon. Basically an ultralight aeronaut for those of us who use an understuffed Smart Alec or Synapse as a backpack/personal carryon

    A kid's backpack with add-on strap lengtheners or... Something.

    As the mom of a 4 year old, I'm totally bummed that the sprout is gone, but I understand it was a pretty specific age group that would fit the pack, and a lot of people were hacking it for adult use, which is cool... So, expand on that thought and have a pack that somehow grows with the kid

    Hi @Beynon5!

    Actually, the Aeronaut 45 Internal Frame fits the Tri-Star! Check out the picture of this dude with the Padded Hip Belt and Tri-Star with the Aeronaut 45 Internal Frame inside!

    Hi @PrimalMama,

    I believe that you've seen the Hack my Sprout thread. I commented in that thread that I could comfortably wear the redesigned Sprout from April 2017 (slightly larger than original Sprout -- made so that it could fit letter size paper). I was too busy at the time to respond to @PinkBrit's pictures of using a waist strap to extend the backpack straps, but I found it easier to use a pair of ice axe straps as strap extenders. Here's a picture of these straps next to a Coyote Pocket Pouch and a Coyote Small Double Organizer Pouch from my post (#2198; March 29, 2018) in the Your Photos Are Needed thread:



    You unthread the stitched, double-thickness end of the webbing through the wide end of the ladderlock (the buckle-looking attachment at the base of the Sprout's backpack strap), and thread it instead into the same area in the ice axe strap's ladderlock. Then you thread the strap end of the ice axe strap through the top black ladderlock and back through the Coyote ladderlock of the ice axe strap. Because the black, double thickness stitched webbing end is sitting at the opening of the Coyote ladderlock (instead of at the top, black Sprout backpack strap ladderlock), the Coyote webbing end that you pass back through the Coyote ladderlock is held in place by this thick end, and won't move. You can initially freely tug on this end to adjust the length, and it will stay in place.

    I like this solution because the strap is instantly adjustable, there are no long, dangling ends, and the extra 3+ inches of length is all that I would need if using thick coats. The only drawback is the Coyote color of the strap extender.

    This picture shows the end connection of the Ice Axe Strap used as a Strap Extender

    2018 Wish List-img_0527-jpg

    Here's the same view with the backpack straps pulled down.

    You may be able to separately order strap extenders in black, from other sources, or, you could order 1" Trovato Ladderlocks in Black and sew on the 1" webbing strap.

    The other reason I didn't post this detailed hack (aside from being busy at the time), is that I learned that they switched to a different design of Ladderlock for the Ice Axe and Lash Straps around April. If you look at my top picture, the 4th Ice Axe Strap at the far right uses a different design, with less space to thread the stitched end of webbing through the opening. It mostly affects the use of these straps for the kind of bag hacking that I outlined for extending the Sprout's straps.

    Yes! I think I saw your thread! :-D

    I'm wishing I could GET a sprout for my kiddo for preK next year... Probably won't need extending for awhile.

    I would love something that's small (big enough for letter paper, not much else) and maybe builds in some adjustability like you've figured out, so the backpack can grow from K-12 and beyond

    I will join this crusade as well. Though, I'd prefer something a little deeper than the MCB at the expense of some height and width, heh.

    Here are the things I've emailed as suggestions to the TB crew. :-)

    1. A Tom Bihn Allergy pack pouch (for 2 epi-pens):

    • Clips and ways to let it dangle in vertical or horizontal orientation (I hate when it swings from my belt - so I use the velcro strips to affix the other end to my belt, horizontally).
    • Big enough to hold TWO epis (they last about 15 minutes, and most people live farther away from the hospital than 15 minutes, and the reaction can come back once the epi wears off).
    • Place to hold benedryl.
    • Bright colored (I like bright yellow, and some sort of allergy alert markings) so its easy to find/spot.
    • Able to affix inside a bag, OR be carried/clipped to my belt without a bag.


    2. A Tom Bihn TAAT (Two-at-a-Time)/Colorwork Yarn stuff sack:

    Many knitters knit socks and mittens or sweater sleeves two at a time, which ensures that both items are exactly the same number of rows (and it means that you don't have to make a second item exactly like the first when the first is done). You knit the items side-by-side on a long circular needle, with two balls of yarn, one for each of the items.

    These are also great for colorwork. The "MC" (main color), would go in one side, and the "CC" (contrast color) would go in the other side.

    • Elongated oval foot print, with the the sack divided into three sections:
    • left compartment for one ball of yarn with one of your yarn guides
    • middle compartment for the actual knitting
    • right compartment for the second ball of yarn, and another yarn guide
    • Other features same as existing yarn stuff sack, drawstring, way to clip to bag, etc.


    3. A Tom Bihn Coffee Travel Kit/Bag:

    Some coffee companies sell something like this, but you have to buy it FILLED with equipment. I want a bag to fill with my OWN equipment. They typically team up with a bag-making company, but only one sells the bag empty, and it's not that great of a bag. (Ok, to be fair, it's a perfectly nice bag. But it's no TB-bag.)

    This differs from the bag that TB made for a local (and cool!) coffee company, in that I'm looking for a bag designed to be a travel kit (like a toiletries bag but for coffee).

    • Spot for the brewer (Aeropress or French press, and if you wanted to be REALLY thorough, figure out how to make it accommodate a pour-over funnel that sits on top of a cup instead of the taller/narrower brewers, but thats a pretty different shape than the FP or AP). Either way - big enough for a brewer that can make at least 24 ounces of coffee.
    • Spot for a small grinder (like the Porlex)
    • Spots for two cups, (nested inside a carafe?)
    • Pockets for other accessories (like measuring spoons, thermometers, sugar packets, electric coil to heat water)
    • Space for beans
    • Zipper closure (not just a flap). Maybe make the top zippered section out of mesh to allow damp things to dry, but have a flap to flip over it.
    • Water proof (or almost). So damp things can be put inside when coffee is done, yet not leak.
    • Slightly padded outer shell (some coffee equipment is breakable).
    • Make sure it has some sort of witty coffee logo/word on outside.
    • Offer it in brown (to avoid showing stains!)
    • Make sure its washable if possible.
    • other stuff Ive probably forgotten. :-)
