    If anyone has insight on this I'd love to hear it. I'm sure it's easier, as it's one less step, but that doesn't seem to be the TB way so I'm sure I'm missing something.
    For a variety of reasons, it turned out the folded and sewn handle was very difficult (nearly impossible) to fabricate: both the sewing and cutting turned out to be far more labor intensive than we had originally planned for.

    The webbing handle on the new Luminaries is our newer thick and smooth webbing and we like it just as well if not better than the folded handle and it's, of course, much easier to fabricate.

    Note: we're using up all of our stock of the folded and sewn handle parts on the Synapses. Once those parts are all used, we'll switch the Synapse handle to be the newer thick and smooth webbing, too.

    Here's a close-up of the thick and smooth webbing handle:

    Awesome, thank you Darcy! That's what I was missing for sure-- had no idea that it's a thicker webbing. Can't wait to check it out.

    @Darcy - during the last pre-order, some folks mentioned being surprised on the other side of the schedule... ie, what time the cut-off is...

    So on Tuesday March 5th - what time does the preorder CLOSE (if volume isn't fully sold out) and what time does the price increase kick in?

    Basically, should folks mark Monday March 4th as the last real day...? For the procrastinators, wafflers, and the folks who don't visit frequently....?


    Thanks!

    Pre-ordered a L12 in NG/Dawn. I'm still unsure whether NG is a good neutral for me and my wardrobe, I really hope it works out!

    And I also ordered a PCSB in Black. Because I had to stay under the limit for cheap international shipping I had to make a hard decision on the color and Black won over Dawn. I love Dawn, but black is just more practical for my purpose.

    Good question!

    Pre-order will close at 12:30pm PT on Tuesday, March 5th. We'll make the price increase live sometime after that.

    Your poor card! Mine sympathizes, but there is so much I'm excited about in this release. What are you ordering?

    I just placed my order and it isn't *quite* as hard on my credit card as I expected, because my sweetie decided that the Original Large Shop Bags I'm ordering will be a present to me from him. <3
    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.

    There is a large amount of Dawn in my future....
    ...and significantly more shop bags of various types than I could ever hold at once...

    Yep, me too. (Though two of the Dawn shop bags are for my mom.) In addition to the enormous ZTSB pre-order, I ordered two mini GWOPs for immediate shipping - one in Island for my misc purse items (currently in a mini COP), and one in Nebulous that should perfection fit the larger of my Anker battery packs (currently in a small Q-Kit).

    I decided to be good. I just got 1 lrg. OTSB in Northwest Sky, 1 sm. ZTSB & a PCSB in Dawn. To be fair I plan on adding more to my order before it ships. But it looks better on the budget if I don't do it all at once. ( at least that is what I am hoping because my husband doesn't understand my TB obsession & if I add in April it's an early Mother's Day present Luminary + 210 Ballistic Shop Bags Pre-Order &amp; News Thread )

    I also preordered the L12 but in NG/Island. One of my friends says itís a great neutral and in some cases looks better than black.

    Sounds good! Do you know if your phone will fit or is it trial and error?

    I emailed the TB Crew and Darcy told me that my phone will fit in the taller side pocket.
