    This post will be updated as pages go live and more information is shared. You're welcome to ask questions and we'll do our best to answer them and share information that we can in advance of the debut.

    February 12th - February 15th (date TBD due to winter storm snow days at the TOM BIHN headquarters)
    Pages (description, specs, photos, video) + blog posts for the following go live:
    Luminary 12
    Luminary 15

    Packing Cube Shoulder Bag (updated with a new o-ring, shoulder strap option, and in 210d colors: Dawn, Viridian, Black, Island, Coyote, Grass
    The Truck in 210d ballistic colors (Dawn, Viridian, Island, Coyote, Grass)

    February 26th
    Pre-order window opens for the following bags: Luminary 12, Luminary 15, Small and Large Zip-Top Shop Bags, Original Large Shop Bag
    These bags will be in-stock and ready to ship: Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, The Truck
    (note: orders including both pre-order and in-stock bags can be placed. more details here.)

    March 5th
    Each bag will be available for pre-order from February 26th until March 5th OR until the maximum production batch quantity sells out. Then we'll begin making everyone's bags!

    Late April - early May
    We expect to ship everyone's pre-orders by late April - early May.

    Details + Information

    Updates to the Luminary design + Pre-Production Batch Process
    A preview for our Forum community of an upcoming blog post. Photos of both Luminaries + behind-the-scenes details. List of the updates Tom made to the design. List of color combinations that will be made available for pre-order.

    An update on the volume measurements of the new Luminaries
    There’s always been (and probably always will be) confusion over volume measurements.

    As mentioned in that last link, we came up with our own variation on the ASTM standard and we updated the volume of the original Luminary (and only the original Luminary; the volume wasn’t updated for any other bags) from 12 to 10 based on that variation. After further consideration and review, we determined that our variation would likely cause more confusion, which was the opposite of our original intention. A standard is a standard for a reason.

    The upshot: the original Luminary is back to being the Luminary 12 and we’re sticking with the same volume measurement standard we’ve used for the last quarter century.

    Volume measurements will always be a little confusing because we make soft bags: the volume of a bag is determined by how much you under or overstuff it. That said, the volume measurements we provide are a great indicator of how much stuff you can generally fit in any bag. If you’re wondering if a specific item or items will fit in a specific bag and want more assurance than our specifications, photos, and videos can provide, please don’t hesitate to emailus@tombihn.com

    @morion, you're an instigator!!! (love that gif)

    and because I'm a geek, I just calculated that one of each of the new colour/fabric combos (including the previously released black for ease of calculation) for the L12, L15, oLSB, SZTSB, LZTSB, PCSB, and Truck comes to.... $4,923 before tax and shipping....
    so unfortunately, prioritization will have to happen (bah humbug)
    dawn, viridian, coyote, and and and (sigh)

    Viridian! Oh how I love thee. I wish I could buy all the bags. Especially in Viridian. But I will have to hold off on that for awhile. Have been wanting that Luminary 15 for the longest time, and that will definitely be first on my list to be ordered.

    Hmm, 15% longer. Will a ultrabook 13 be able to sneak into the slot now? Because that would be cool.

    (My XPS 13 is 12”x8”, for reference.)

    Yes: the XPS 13 will fit in the Luminary 15. Any laptops around that size will. The 13" MacBook Pro fits, and the larger 13" MacBook Air does with a little wiggling.

    Dangit, I was literally about to hit *go* on an order but was wishing for a truck in grass instead of the red or black ive been hemming and hawing over... Guess I'll have to put it off until I can pre-order Luminary + 210 Ballistic Shop Bags Pre-Order & News Thread

    The Packing Cube Shoulder Bag in Dawn is calling my name VERY loudly. I bring the Truck in Dawn every time I go to the grocery store and it's so useful.

    (And the zip-top shop bags in Dawn! Those would be great! But the Luminary backpacks will definitely have to wait because the Aeronaut will soon take up my bags budget pretty much for the year.)

    Now I can't decide if I want the PCSB in Dawn or in Black. I initially thought black because it's just more stealthy and I had planned to maybe liven it up a bit with some badges, but the Dawn PCSB looks so lovely in this picture! Sadly buying both would be overkill, my bag collection is growing at an alarming rate already... And I really want a Luminary 15 for work.
