    1. Can the zipped pocket on the inside be shifted to the back, like DLBC, so we can easily access some items without opening the flap?
    2. Not so many small pockets in the front zipped pocket, or at least make them a bit bigger such that they can fit car keys, access keycards, tissue paper packs
    3. Add pen slots

    4. And a handle like Cafe Bags!

    One of the most anticipated item, for me, would be the replacement for the pen roll, something beautiful, with pen slots, the same that were used in the FJN, that would enable me to take my fountain pens, pencils and markers on outings. So, besides being beautiful it should be sturdy.

    Another one would be a produce bag, I am thinking of a variation of the laundry bag with a mesh separator instead of the fabric one. This mesh would allow to mitigate, for the snafus, that sometimes arise when soft fruits gets bruised during transport.

    The all around fabric and fabric bottom is needed to protect the fruit or vegetable from the yukkiness of shopping carts.

    Ideally it would be made of a fabric that is washable.

    Also, since there are now many mesh fabric colors, I would also be happy with a mesh bag for washing.

    I also would be happy to see pink ballistic or at least a magenta, since the beautiful Alphaviolet is on its way out. I am grateful that Dawn is still there and that Aubergine was introduced.

    I missed any announcement that Alphaviolet is retiring--where was it mentioned? (I dislike Alphaviolet myself so I'm personally not unhappy about that, but I feel sympathy for the people who will be sad to see it go. (I like purple, but it turned out that for me Alphaviolet is the Wrong Purple and Aubergine is the Right Purple.))
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian.

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    I'd love a SK in dawn! The Aubergine is lovely but I think the more neutral dawn would work for a wider variety of outfits.

    Not that I need another bag at ALL..... 😁

    Also, how about just a simple Tom Bihn t-shirt? I know clothing is a far cry from bags (especially since sizing always throws a wrench in inventory) but I think it'd be nice to proclaim our Bihnion status even if maybe on that day we aren't carrying our favorite bag.

    Love the T-shirt idea! Maybe with the "Portable Culture" tagline? With a V-neck option, hopefully.... I have so many T-shirts that I bought because I loved the design, but I need to admit that I can't do crew-necks.

    Thank you! I thought I was subscribed to that for updates, but I must have missed it.

    Iíd really love a 1L water bottle holder with clips that let me put a cross body strap on it.
    Bonus points if I could have a little zip pocket for minimal cards.
    Even better if it could be clipped to other bags...

    Fredlet: Flip and Tumble has a waterbottle bag that sort of fits your description. It has a little pocket (not zipped).

    As I continue my search for my Goldilocks bag - I'd love to see a personal item size version of the Shadow Guide. I keep searching for a 16-17" backpack (I'm 5'0" and want something that ends just above my tailbone) with minimal organization - mainly one big cavernous section and a smaller organizing pocket or 2 that has good, comfortable straps and can handle a 15 pound load. I think the Shadow Guide ticks most of the boxes except for the size. (Cue U2's "Still haven't found what I am looking for...")

    Have you looked at the Eagle Creek Travel Bug?
