    Stowaway "successor": still coming?

    When the Stowaway was discontinued, there was a note that TB was designing a bag to serve many of the same purposes, with no ETA.

    Just checking: I assume the follow-on is *not* the Synik, so we should still be looking forward to it. True?

    Thanks!

    Ooohhh good question! I loved the concept but couldn’t justify another bag while it was available. Now of course I have several trips coming up it would have been perfect for.

    True. We're waiting on a component for the design that our supplier is making especially for us. I won't venture an ETA on that (we're just glad they'll make it for us) but once that's in, we'll be good to go.

    I could have sworn there was a post here asking for more details, but I can't find it now. Copying here for future reference (from the 1050d-vs-525d thread):

    Thanks!

    I actually got to see/have the Trinity demoed by Tom himself, though that was quite a while ago! It's one I'm looking forward to. I really liked the Stoway's general shape and capacity, though the bag itself was 200% not for me. I think Trinity(ies) will address this, based on some of Tom's comments!

    (note: I'm trying hard to not say anything here that hasn't been said; it's already been said to be a Stowaway replacement and to be called Trinity! Feel free to delete if this is too much ).

    I'm so curious about this. I'd love something that can be carried as either a shoulder bag or a backpack, and is the right size and shape for a plane bag. The Stowaway was very interesting and I was even more intrigued when I saw someone carrying one the other day. It looked really nice! However, I didn't like the way it opened up as a backpack, and I thought it might be heavy (with all those pockets and folds) for the capacity. I look forward to seeing the new design.
