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.
    No announcement yet. Just that they MIGHT do a run. Sigh.

    So hubby and son went on a trip to Taiwan recently. Hubby was a walking TB ad. He had the Nordic SA on his back, slingged a Mars Red SCF, lugged a Wasabi ZTSB that had all the shopping. I should have taken a photo of him when he arrived at the airport. Lobby for pre-order Smart Alec runLobby for pre-order Smart Alec runLobby for pre-order Smart Alec run No, he's not the crazy TB fan. I got them all. Glad he finds them useful. SA is his favourite bag. I want another one so I can have one too. He's not giving it back!

    As someone mentioned earlier in the thread I'd love to see a Guides Edition run off the SA with UMP & LMP pre-order options that match.

    @stubbsj20 I am lucky enough to be the owner of a black halcyon island smart alec, but I am also hoping for another production run to hit my wanted black halcyon ultraviolet combo.

    I'd like an original halcyon/wasabi version before these two fabrics retire.

    There's one on eBay in the US right now! I think the seller is in Canada. I don't know if shipping to where you are would be practical, but it might be worth checking out.
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    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.

    So excited to see a possible Smart Alec limited run. I really hope it will become a reality. Darcy posted that we might need to wait -- I don't mind at all, just hope that it happens. And if it does that I would be fast enough to make it to the list Smilie

    Oh man.... yesterday I was able to snag my unicorn bag, a black halycon SA. To top it off - it had an Island interior. It is truly the combination I would have chosen if I was buy direct fromTom Bihn. Yes, I had to overpay. Like in a big way. But I am not upset - I got my long wished for bag.

    How about a black halcyon SA with whatever new interior halcyon color they are launching this year? Lobby for pre-order Smart Alec run

    Count me in for one as well. Being able to fit a full face helmet in the bag makes it a killer commuter bag for me. Mine is also one of the older ones that I can't put a UMP onto. I guess I'll just keep using my current one until it completely wears out for now.

    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.
    Dear Darcy, are there any news about a production run of Smart Alec? I do not mind if it takes several months, end of 2020 beginning 2021, but I would love it if it happens. It is by far my favorite bag. And now with all these nice new halcyon colors, I can't stop dreaming of a Black/Solaris SA.

    I wish I could say yes, but we're not seeing that there's quite enough interest in the Smart Alec to make it a sure bet. We *might* be able to offer it as a "if enough orders are placed, we'll make it; if not enough are placed, we won't" type of pre-order at some point. That may also be what we do if we offer the Synapse 25 Guide's Edition in the future, because it wasn't anywhere near as popular as the GE Synik 22 or GE Synik 30. On the other hand, time and resources go into even offering the Smart Alec as a "if there's enough pre-orders we'll make them" pre-order regardless of whether we end up making it, and that would be time and resources diverted from new designs that are nearly finished. That's why it's not an easy choice for us. So, that's where it's at right now. We'll continue to consider it!
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.
