    November Debut Thread

    It's almost time for our last design debut of 2018.....

    Monday 11/19 around 8:00am-ish Pacific Time
    The pages for one new design and three new-ish designs will go live on the website. I'll update this thread w/links to the new designs.

    Monday 11/26 around 8:00am-ish Pacific Time
    The new designs will be made available for order.

    You're welcome to post any questions you'd like to ask / we'll answer 'em here in this thread.

    It's been busy here at the factory as we all work on the last few details related to the debut! And as you can see in the photos below, no one is letting me get away with posting preview photos of the new designs or any kind of hinting at all, so we'll all just have to wait until Monday for the reveal. Smilie

    Tom and Nik held a bag demo (an overview of the new designs + a time when customer service can ask questions about the new designs to help answer your questions) for Kat, Matthew, Cody, Mike, Tim, and Matt.

    Everyone blocked the new designs before I could get a photo of them. We don't know why The Mike's practicing his Tai chi at the bag demo:

    Tom was in the process of forming an x with his hands but I took the photo too quickly so it looks like he's making a T which is confusing:

    Then we had our company meeting (today's food: pizza). Here, Mike hands Tom and Nik one of the new designs to show off to the whole crew (who, of course, have already seen the new designs because we made them, but still, we're excited so....)

    Pizza time!

    Everyone decided this photo was way too weird to post but I'm going to do it anyway:

    I was considering ordering a Brain Bag as I think it may be the TB bag for my commute. But I'd much rather have smaller smaller and narrower, albeit with similar organization and ability to stand on its own. But the BB looks very good in the current colors!
    ... should I wait and be pleasantly surprised, or is it safe to go with the BB..?

    @Darcy, this is so super exciting!

    So, that blue bag that is conveniently behind Mike's Tai chi movements -- can we give it the code name `Tai chi bag`? Wink

    The pizza does look amazing, and I love weird shots! I know you said no hints, @Darcy -- they say a great way to hide something is to place it in plain sight. So I can't help but wonder -- is TOM BIHN Pizza one of the items in the debut?

    On the topic of weirdness, the mushroom at the top right of that pizza first looked like a sculpture of the profile of someone's face to me.

    Thank you, thank you Darcy! Such great pictures, including the pizza, a meal out of my mandibular reach, for now, but so appetizing!

    I have to say that my healthier meals have been helping my fitness level!

    Well... The bag will be available in Navy, it looks modular because it is kind of small on the table hidden by Kat but kind of big on the second photo because one side is held by Mike and the other by Nik and another side by Tom. And Nik is also holding a handle that looks like the one on the table in the first picture.

    However, I am not betting a slice of pizza on any of my speculations, because I have been known to be wrong on all count, which is a plus when the Cubelet, Travel Cubelet and Pop Tote, some of the yummiest design in TB line, came out of the blue.

    Speaking of blue, Tom wearing navy and Nik wearing gray make it very difficult to discern the design outlines, on purpose, I suppose.

    Darcy, who is the pizza maker?

    It looks like there is a nice dark green bag with handles on the table in pic 2!

    Can't wait for Monday!! Thanks for the tease. :-)

    The 26th is going to be a big day.

    Dream would be that all of the zip top shop bags come back in stock, the A30 in black ballistic / northwest sky comes back in stock, and there's the chance at a few new bags all shipped in the same box.

    Look forward to the previews!
