    Lobby for pre-order Smart Alec run

    I have a black grid halcyon backpack with Island interior (not for sale, sorry!). Itís amazing, itís a jack of all trades kinda bag. When I first came to TB I got an s25 and that was the perfect bag for me for years. But, as I got more into TB accessories, pouches, and cubes I realized my travel style had changed and I organized by those rather than by using the s25ís built in storage. When I went to Montreal and realized I only had put things in the large interior and the front lower pocket, I knew that a switch to a more cavernous bag was needed. Luckily I found someone to swap my s25 for their smart alec. I do, however, miss a smaller backpack on occasions. The smart alec is not so great (for me anyways) for short weekend trips. May be looking at a DLBP, in the future for that.

    We've been reading your posts/feedback here and I'm just now getting a chance to respond!

    I updated the Smart Alec page so that anyone who is interested can sign up to be notified via email if we ever decide to make another production run of Smart Alecs. That said, if we did choose to make another production run, it wouldn't be anywhere near very soon at all because our production schedule is solidly booked for the next while.
    Current Carry: The Hero's Journey, Skookum Dog Citizen Canine, Founder's Briefcase, Synapse 19 (day hikes), Guide's Pack (longer day hikes), Yeoman Duffel (winter/emergency stuff for the car), Aeronaut 30 (travel), Night Flight Travel Duffel (camera bag), Moveable Feast + Shop Bags (food)

    Thatís nice that itís under consideration. Iíd guess that it wouldnít be at the old price of $190 but something closer to all the new updated bag prices?

    Seriously? $305? Come on.... TB pls plan a production run already. Every SA on FB or ebay gets sold, and the enthusiasm has been over-zealous in the recent ebay bidding. (grumble grumble....more mutterings under my breath)

    Actually I thought that was a very good price for a Smart Alec in excellent condition and with both matching modular pockets. It is only $35 more than what it cost originally. After I bought my original halcyon SA, I had to wait quite a while before TB did their last batch of modular pockets in that fabric. In fact, there were several of us who were holding their breath that we would ever get the matching pockets.

    I missed the announcement, so can you tell us when TB said they are doing another round of Smart Alecs? Iíve read that we can sign up in case they decide to make them in the future but didnít know it is a sure thing. I would like to get one in Nordic before that fabric is discontinued.
