    That's a bag I would be interested in... I am always on the lookout for something to replace my Imago if something ever happens to it. (or, you know, the Imago could just come back Wink )

    Me too. I'm not so sure whether the new DLBC could be as versatile as my Grey Cordura DLBC, as I am aiming for Black/Viridian combo. Too bad Frown
    I usually one shoulder my DLBC but I also have been messenger-carry recently especially my son want to be carried from home to his car seat - every morning to his Nanny home.

    I find messenger-carry DLBC while holding my son allow more stability and ease of movement. Not just holding him, I would need to navigate out to the car seat and place him there. Close and lock the home door. Sometimes, preparing his water bottle at the last minute, as he like to drink during the car ride. I personally may not as multi-tasking as my wife though! Haha.

    Ah.. I wish to add one or two my wishlist for the Daylight Messenger.
    I'm fine without flap. but I hope the depth is more generous.

    I'm not a fan of the styling, personally. I'll probably ultimately grab the daylight briefcase again (I had one, returned it). Just hope it comes back in stock, I could use it soon.

    I think the shoulder strap is now too long. I am not short (5' 9"), but I'd like to wear it on my side with my arm and elbow on top of the bag (just like the the guy in the TB video on the DLBC page). I shortened the strap as much as possible (there is a limit due to the rubber shoulder pad), but it is still too long. I guess it's due to now much higher snaphook positions.

    The rubber shoulder pad gives me the same problem. I am not short, either, though I am a woman and I suspect those straps are designed for a tallish man.

    The shoulder pad can be moved to the other side of the tri glide piece (that is, the shoulder pad can be placed on the doubled-up side of the strap). It's a little tricky but not impossible to wiggle the pad off the snaphook on one end and wiggle it back on over the snaphook on the other side. This applies for both the plastic pad in the Simple Strap and the larger pad of the Standard Strap.

    Perhaps we have different era straps?

    I have successfully moved one of the fabric pads on one of my Standard straps over the triglide, but I couldn't do it on the other (the nylon webbing was thicker).

    As for the rubber pads on my Simple Straps, there is absolutely no way it is going around either the triglide or the snaphook.

    I was surprised at how different my two Standard Straps felt but one is a bit older than the other.

    Hmmm, that's possible. But I've had several different TB 1 1/2 inch straps from over the last three? years and have removed and replaced the pads off of all them. Usually I prefer to leave off the pad entirely, sometimes I put it on the doubled part of the strap, and if I swap the bag, I always put the pad back on the factory-default side.

    It does require a little force and pushing the large snaphook at an angle while squeezing open the slot in the pad. I didn't mean to imply I was able to just slide it off! The snaphooks on the straps I have had were still slightly wider than the slots.

    I really take my hat off to you, that is very impressive! I just had another go, trying to push the snaphook through at various angles, and I couldn't even get a little bit of it through. You have an amazing skill!
