    Thanks @G42 , I’ll do a google search to see what I can find. A Tom Binh case would be cool!

    I can't tell for sure from the picture but it looks like a pretty straightforward/simple design. I think your best bet for finding something unique along those lines (like a sleeve or something) would be Etsy.

    Just be careful if you go that route though, I've noticed a lot of mass-produced stuff being passed off as "handmade" because they'll take it and add your initials to it and stuff like that. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

    It's a straightforward design, but easier for mass manufacturing than individuals - lightly padded shaped foam inside; a woven appearance material on the outside, and a pleather/leather strap on one side. That strap is partly decorative but is designed as a hand strap so when you wrap your hand around the Kindle the strap keeps it snugged... I use that all the time when I travel alone for work...easy to carry when I bring the kindle into a restaurant to read during dinner.

    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...

    You have officially blown my mind!

    I am a longtime dedicated one bag traveler (A45 or SK22 depending on the trip) with a Sidekick as my flight bag. I'm also a dedicated iPad Mini user (hate the full-size version) as well as Kindle user. I've always used the large pocket in the main section for the iPad and one of the smaller pockets for my Kindle. Although I've never been truly happy with this setup I used it and never thought to use the outside pocket. Well, I just tried it and both fit perfectly into the outside pocket. This will free up the larger inner pocket for my Bose headphones and then the center section for various assorted small items like snacks, small notebook, hanky, etc. Btw, I prefer to have quicker access to my water bottle and have a carabiner fixed to the shoulder straps in my A45 and SN22. Works great for me.

    I can't believe I never thought of this possibility.

    I'd really like double organizer pouches that are all fabric (no clear material).

    @Surrealle , while I have had positive experiences with some Etsy vendors, I appreciate your advice on the mass production of some things being touted as “handmade.” I think I may just stick to Amazon where it’s easier to deal with any potential issues/problems. ��

    Thanks for the suggestion! I have a HLT1, but couldn't make it work in a bag (though this might change now with the SG33). I never thought to use it on a bike -- very clever. Right now I'm using this and it works well, but I'd appreciate more room for days that I go on a longer ride and don't want to bring panniers.

    I can't wait to see the Trinity unveiled. It's been a long time coming and it's going to be great to see it.

    Also, my wish for 2021 is the same as it was in 2020-Ghost Whales in halcyon fabric. I'd love to have a Sitka or Solaris ghost whale, I think that'd be really cool.

    I only just became a Bihnion this year so I don’t know if it’s been done before, but I’d love love LOVE a bag with a zip-away divider. I have the Western Flyer and Brain Bag (well, 2 BBs actually) and I’m always wishing I could zip away the divider between the two main compartments to make one big compartment with those bags. I was super excited to see what I *thought* was that feature on the Aeronauts, but disappointed to realize the divder doesn’t zip away, it just moves from one position to another.

    I’d also love a clamshell on the BB, but I realize at that point you’re getting close to Synik territory. I just really appreciate the other design aspects of the BB like the clip on the front and lack of a laptop compartment, which you don’t get with the Syniks. Plus the large vertical pockets are really nice.

    Oh, and I know this is a departure from the TB aesthetic, but man I’d kill for some magnetic features/clips on the bags. And of course, the integrated strap management that I mentioned in the other thread (even if it’s just something simple like an elastic loop).

    I would love...

    - More solaris, and for nordic and zest to come back. I love all the bright, pretty halcyon colors.

    - More bags in general, and more production runs of limited bags, to give people more chances to buy. I understand the Covid situation and the split workload (bags/ masks) is making it difficult to produce enough bags. I also know that there were several bags that I wanted to get this year, that were sold out too quickly for me to get one, or not in stock for months.

    - A return of the Smart Alec, possibly updated with a back frame and the new shoulder straps. My dream SA would have a grey or navy exterior, and a solaris interior. My other dream SA would be a Guides edition (like a smaller guides pack, but with a bit more organization and external attachment points than the shadow guides).

    - More Guides Edition bags. Also, Guides edition bags with ursa, nebulous grey, navy, or black for the trim instead of (or in addition to) coyote. I love the duel colorway and the extra attachment points, but would like some more subtle options.

    - a larger sidekick, that could fit the ipad air (with thin sleeve or case). The cafe bags are great, but I need zippers.


    Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to your fans!

    Watermelon and lime Heart Eyes

    Monarch was beautiful too. It was saturated and rich and I didn't buy enough pieces in it. The photos didn't do it justice. I hope there will be room in the line-up for bright colors this summer.

    I really liked the ballistic fabrics in brighter colors too. Grass, viridian, mars red, alphaviolet. The solid colors give bags a different vibe which I really like. (ok mars red isn't bright but it's so rich. I'd have caved and bought a truckasna in that. Because I need _another_ knitting bag? Big Grin )

    eta: Since this is a wish list, I wish for yeoman in mars red.
