We'll also be restocking the Everyday Cubelet and the HLT pouches on Wednesday.

    The new Shadow Guide 33 is being sewn right now; next up to begin production is the Shadow Guide 23. After that, we plan to make the Truckasana and the Insigne (Tom's new backpack design that he showed off in the FB group Zoom.) We have a mask storage bag in the works that we plan to sneak in there, and we also want to make a Design Lab batch of Packing Cube Shoulder Bags. Shop Bags, Side Effects, and Travel Trays in the limited edition 200d Halcyon colors too. There will be more that we'll be working on, but for now, that's all I'll share.... once we make headway on those production runs, we'll share what we plan to make next. Smilie I hope this helps a bit!



    We're pretty sure that the Parental Unit is going to move to "Design Vault" status AKA retired, but we could make one more production run sometime in the future.



    I'm sad to say it's unlikely we'll be making the Guide's Pack pockets again (I'll update the page to remove the "In Production" notice on the Navy.) We don't plan to retire The Guide's Pack; that said, there are only a handful left, and it may be a while before we make them again.

    Thank you!!! The SE is still my favorite EDC!

    Thank you Darcy. I was hoping for them to be made, especially after finding out the Leads Pocket was retired. I was hoping to "complete" my Guide's Pack, so to speak, but I accept that it may not happen. I'll look around in the FB groups to see if anyone's selling any. Smilie

    On the bright side, I am looking forward to the Shadow Guides and the Insigne, as well as the Design Lab PCSBs, SEs, and Travel Trays!

    The DLBP isn’t deep enough to stand up on its own, and the rounded bottom shape of the S19 is equally bad at being self-supporting. When I drop my pack down on the trail, I really want something that isn’t going to tip over and dump the contents out.

    I have been dying to see a Guide’s Edition S19 just so I could have a smaller, daypack-sized backpack with exterior lash points (I carry a collapsible hiking staff that, when collapsed, is still too tall to fit inside the main compartment of the L15).

    A vertically-oriented daypack, deep enough to stand on its own, with as lash point (or two?!?) for spare or bulky gear?

    Oh, hell yes.

    I also just sent back an L15.

    The L15 is, to date, my favorite TB bag and the one I use the most. It literally goes with me into the office every day and onto the trails on the weekends. When they made the L15 (my favorite bag) in Coyote (my favorite fabric color), I had to buy one. But, as much as I love my L15, I would rather wait for the prospect of a better hiking pack than collect two of the same bags.

    The Insigne might be the bag I’ve been after all this while. I know TB is a travel-minded company, but I would love to ask them, if just this once, to throw a bone to the hiking crowd and give us a solid daypack (please?).

    I always enjoy seeing your posts on the “Where did your TB bag go lately” thread. Thanks for posting. And I second your wish for Guides Edition of the S19. I have a GES25 and the extra lash points are very handy but I just don’t need that big a bag. I can only wish. The Insigne looks intriguing but it lacks the numerous access points of the S19.

    Keeping my fingers crossed you’re going to make some from a heavier weight fabric! I would love one in Aubergine.

    Unless you have a really sneaky surprise, I'm assuming the two items below saying 'ultraviolet 525' are really alphaviolet Smilie

    DLBP Ultraviolet 525 Ballistic/Cloud 210 Ballistic
    MCB Ultraviolet 525 Ballistic/Cloud 210 Ballistic


    Smilie
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    And.... what @moriond is describing is also in the works. It has the very unique name of "Laptop Truck". (I believe it was @haraya that encouraged this design along!)

    Good catch! Fixed those to be Alphaviolet

    (Ultraviolet 525d would look great though!)

    A "yesss!!" and a Frown - I missed out on the Medium Yeoman but managed to snag the Large in Navy. So think of me, if you have the Medium and it isn't love! Smilie

    Hope other folks scored their dream bag!

    Any Timing News?

    Holy #%^* was that a bloodbath!

    The only thing on my list I could get was a Deep Blue/Coyote DLBP.

    Even hovering over the item page and refreshing until the clock hit noon, someone still beat me to the Ursa GESN22.

    All the more incentive to make sure I enter the upcoming SG raffles, I guess!

    I was on the medium yeoman at 1:01 EST and they were already gone. Frown The S25 frame sold out of my cart as I was checking out at 1:03. At least that one will be coming back.

    I did get the restocked ECs I've been waiting for. I finally pulled the trigger on an S25, in Mars Red Heart Eyes It's been time to replace my old work/travel backpack for a while. And I ordered another Icon on my mother's behalf. So, do I get her a third for christmas or introduce her to the truck? Wink

    I tried for the black PIKA, but no luck. Crazy how fast everything went.
