    I think I've kind of just fallen out of love with TB. (They're still a great company and the people are awesome, but I don't really identify with the brand like I used to.)

    The next debut will be sometime the week of July 17th (barring any unforeseen delays, of which we'd let you know about). The original Small Shop Bag as well as the new Zipper Shop Bag will be part of that debut.

    Times change, people change. Yours could be a permanent rift, could be temporary. Tom Bihn is surely a niche company, they don't have everything that I want either, but I still do appreciate what they do have most of the time (and buy things I want that are not in their line up from other vendors). One thing I wanted was a real purse, not a unisex container that could be used as a purse (I love my Travel Cubelet in its own way, but its not a purse). So I found another vendor on the East coast that has similar values on sustainability/minimalist design and got their purse. It doesn't take away my excitement over debuts however. I'm still always so excited to see what the company has next, even if it isn't something I plan to buy. I feel bad that you only feel a shrug. I like when happiness/excitement can be shared.

    Would you be willing to share the name of that East coast vendor? I am seeking a "real purse" as well.

    I'll be in Seattle around then. This trip could be dangerous to my wallet.

    It is always the same, the day I don't post or check the forum, Darcy posts about the latest debut.

    Like clockwork.

    Darcy, any hints with carefully edited photos or clues that aren't?


    Handsome Ichiro can always be part of pictures, he makes them more interesting.

    I'd be happy with some new bright interior fabrics in their backpacks and travel bags. While nice, I'm looking for something other than the usual NWS, wasabi, island or iberian. Fingers crossed!

    I expect the Internal Frames + Padded Hip Belt will be available for order early next week. After that, we're gearing up for the next debut. It's going to be an interesting one...
    This changes my recent purchase of a more backpacking type bag to a “well, I need to return it since I’ll be able to use my A30 instead” IM GOING CRAZY WAITING!!! LOL
    YAY!

    I look forward to reading about it on your blog! Can't wait to hear if these frames are as amazing as the S25 one.

    Oh no! I just place my first TB order ever. I didn't realize that new stuff usually comes out in June! I just ordered the A30, S19, and S25 with the intent to keep one and return the others. #Fail

    well, the new debut items may not be legitimate alternates to the three things you just bought to try out... so it's not really a fail
    there will always be a new debut at some point (2-3/year?) so you could be waiting forever

    I did stay away from the computer, thus the forum, for a couple of days, should I check the Blog for teaser photos?
