    Yes, just saw the new layout - it looks quite nice!

    It looks like the Hero's Journey is disco'd? Did we know that?

    EDIT: Looks like it hit the Blog last night

    Who knew somebody could be emotional about a website. I just read the new "About Us" section. It is uplifting!

    Thank you so much for the timely feedback! Part of our intent in making website updates is to make things better or easier for you guys and getting feedback about those updates helps us know if that intent translated into actual usefulness or not.

    We're still making minor updates to the new navigation. As you use it, do let me know if you notice anything buggy or that could be optimized or if there's additional categories we could add to the mega-menu dropdowns. I just switched on a notice bar that may appear from time-to-time when we have something to announce, like Tuesday's pre-order. Smilie

    When I'm on a product page, the drop down menus on the new navigation bar go away when my cursor overlaps with the product image, which makes it impossible to click a lot of the links. I'm using Safari on a MacBook Pro.

    Ditto, but I am in Chrome on a MacBook

    That's not good -- thought we fixed that. Working on it right now. Thanks for letting us know.

    Two things I just noticed:

    The link to the Original Cafe Bag in the megamenu goes to the Small Cafe Bag, but the website says the Medium Cafe Bag is the original version.

    Also, I'm finding that the Recently Viewed Bags dropdown seems to disappear when I'm on certain product pages. E.g., I clicked over to the Small Cafe Bag via the megamenu (Home > Original Cafe Shoulder Bag link), and Recently Viewed Bags is missing from the page. Same with on the Daylight Backpack page (which I got to via Home > Everyday Carry Backpacks > Daylight Backpack). Recently Viewed Bags IS, however, showing up on the Synapse 19 page (Everyday Carry Backpacks > Synapse 19) and the Medium Cafe Bag page (reached via Recently Viewed on Synapse 19 page). I'm using Safari on an iMac at the moment.

    I think it's a cool idea, but maybe too small or you need a more pronounced colour contrast to the bar below... even knowing it was there it took me a moment to 'notice' it.

    The issue reported by @possibleday was fixed a couple of hours ago.

    Ahh, I see that too -- thanks. We'll be working on getting that dropdown to play nice with the rest of the site tomorrow. Smilie

    I noticed on my iPad the top navigation isn’t sticky so it disappears right away and you can’t select anything.

    For some reason the only way I can get the "Truck" to appear on the site is to do a search, unlike the pre-order zip top shop bags, which automatically are displayed on the duffels and totes pages. Will you be adding that to the totes page? I have not located a "new" section. Otherwise, the searchable added categories are very helpful. I also had trouble getting inputting my email address for notifications on the new items using Firefox on a MacBook Pro, but that might be a settings issue, as I was able to on my phone, no problem.

    In general I do like the redesign. Except I have one pretty major issue with it: You've COMPLETELY buried the forums. You've lumped it in in the very bottom among all the other social media links. If I were a new customer, it's so completely buried that I wouldn't think to click on the link, and I would never meet all the wonderful people who are part of this community!

    I always thought it was great that the link to the forums was right at the top before. I know everyone likes Instagram, FB and Twitter now, but THIS place is different. Could you please consider moving the link to a little more prominence, please? I feel like we'll just wilt on the vine. Frown
