    Noooooo! I don't want to like the Trinity! I just found my unicorn NFTD in Original/Wasabi.

    Spoiler for excitement:
    I'm very much hoping for the smallest size to be smaller than 400 x 250 x 200 mm, aka the personal item size limit for Ryanair.

    Small Trinity Dimensions
    420 x 280 x 200
    16.5Ē x 11Ē x 7.9Ē

    So, it's just a little bigger than those Ryanair dimensions. I did share this with Tom; maybe he'll design a mini Trinity someday! He says it'd be super cute, but wouldn't be able to convert to a backpack.

    Spoiler for Awkward Question Maybe?:
    What price ranges do you see the small and mediums?
    We won't arrive at price ranges until we begin the PPB (pre-production batches) of the small and medium Trinity and Tom, Lisa, Fong and Nik work together on the engineering of the manufacturing process.

    Tom originally thought he'd design Trinity briefcases in addition to the travel bags, but thinks the small size (dimensions above) will make a great briefcase/commuting bag and a specific briefcase version may not be necessary. We'll see.

    I think the Trinity will be a design that's around a long time, so no need to feel rushed to get one!
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Lord, now I have to decide whether I buy the TriStar now or wait to see the Trinity.

    I'd love a briefcase version (at least I think I would, having never seen the bag lol). I have a bigger laptop that is too big for the Cadet and while it would fit in a Trinity/WF/etc... the 8" depth is way more than I'd need/want for that purpose. Or just make a bigger Cadet haha.

    Thank you for all of this, Darcy! I've been dying to see how this would progress. I can easily see wanting two of the three sizes -- perhaps the small and medium.

    But I could also see traveling with just two of the smalls: with one as an EDC backpack, and clothes and other things in the second bag. Combined, it would be over 40 liters. I've done three weeks in Colombia with only a Shadow Guide and a DLBC, which comes to 39 liters.

    So if I'm reading this right, it seems like the small Trinity is right in between the Stowaway and the Western Flyer in terms of size. At least for height and width, looks like the Trinity is deeper than both of them. Which makes sense, right? This is supposed to be the spiritual successor to the Stowaway, and to a lesser extent the WF/TS. The size seems absolutely *perfect* to use as a personal item on most US airlines, though. I'm looking at various airlines, and it either barely makes the cut for a personal item or it's just a teensy bit over, usually in the depth department. Should be able to squish it, though. Depending on the price, this could definitely be a really good sidekick to my GE S25 for two-bag traveling.

    Given the dimensions, the small Trinity seems much closer to the WF: probably about 23 or 24 liters to the WF's 26. (The Stowaway was only 12 liters.)

    There may be a 40-45 liter Trinity further on down the road. We'll see!

    Seems like TB could use an alternative to the A45, so fingers crossed the new design is a big hit that leads to bigger things!
