    February 26th Restock: Synapse 25, Snake Charmers, Truck and more....

    Our next big restock will be on Friday, February 26th at 7:00am PT and will include the....

    Synapse 25

    Synapse 19 & Synapse 25 Freudian Slips

    Truck

    Ghost Whale Organizer Pouches
    (full list of colors/types/sizes will be added back Monday)

    Nik's Minimalist Wallets

    Large Snake Charmer
    Small Snake Charmer

    Various sizes of Cache sleeve (some have already been restocked!)

    And *maybe* the Synik 22. If it's not quite ready by 2/26, it will be restocked shortly thereafter (probably the following week!)

    Availability info! We made an effort to make a large quantity of each bag in each color combination, so we don't think any of them will sell out quickly. That said, there's limited edition Halcyon 400d and 200d colors available in these various bags.... and, as some of you know, we may be facing a Halcyon shortage this summer due to supplier-side issues and long waits at the port. If you're interested in some of those limited edition Halcyon colors, you needn't rush, but you may want to place an order sooner rather than later.

    Questions? Feel free to ask.

    And I'll leave you with a photo of the Synapse 25 in Taiga 400d... Heart Eyes

    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    We'll be ready to share more news soon as we're currently planning our March pre-order. It's getting pretty big (we might actually have to remove a few bags/save them for a future pre-order) and full of bold color, so it's going to be a fun one to take photos of.

    Excited about the Ghost Whales getting restocked. Been wanting to try some of them out for awhile.

    Questions about the "pre-order:" how does it differ compared to a regular restock exactly? Like are certain bag models or color combos only available as pre-orders? Do pre-orders get mailed out sooner? I just want to try and coordinate since I want to try and make a bulk order soon-ish with everything coming out, but I also don't want to miss out on something if it's only going to be available and small quantities.

    @Darcy ,

    Great new! Just a curiosity, would you happen to know if the Tri-Star in Black 1050d will be in the March pre-order batch? Big Grin

    And just confirming -- the black truck will have the regular label as pictured on the purchase page, and not the blackout label; is that correct?

    That's a good question.

    Pre-order = you order it, we make it, and that usually takes 3-6 weeks or so.
    Restock = the bags are made and we add that inventory to our website. When/if a color or bag sells out, it's sold out until we make more and restock it again. Restocks ship sooner because the bags are already made.

    If you have a pre-order that hasn't yet shipped, you can easily add restock items to that pre-order. We assume you'll want us to hold everything and ship it together, but there's also an option for you to purchase additional shipping if you'd like the in-stock items to be shipped sooner.

    We make and offer a ton of different designs, colors, and fabrics for a company our size, and that means it's going to take a little while before we can reach our goal of having most bags in-stock and available for order at any given time. While we're working towards that goal, we are offering both pre-orders (monthly or semi-monthly) and restocks (twice a month or more) to help us get there in the most efficient way possible and also give folks a chance to order the bags that they've very patiently been waiting for.

    I hope that helps a little bit! If you have follow-up questions, feel free to ask.

    Fun, excitement, anticipation! Wouldn't want it any other way. Smilie
    [edit] Oh, and yes, BOLD color. Orange: bold, bright, burnt! That's my hope. I see it listed in-production for several bags, especially the Small Cafe Bag! Eagerly, patiently waiting.

    @Darcy , now that it’s pretty much sold out, I’m yearning for a Luminary. Is there a timeframe on that? Thanks!

    All good news! I've been having my eye on a wallet for a little bit.

    But I guess a technical question: what happened to Nik's Wallet #2?

    Also, any word on a Freudian slip yet?

    I noticed from Instagram the S25 in Black / Tidal (formerly Acuity) being available on this release but noticed it is not listed. Are there other colors not listed as well?

    Before I answer questions, let me just say: thanks for asking such great questions and for your patience as we ramp up our bag making efforts!

    Good question. Current estimate is: April-May.

    Nik's Wallet #2 was the least popular version/style offered, so we decided to retire it so we could make more of #1, #3, and #4.

    Synapse 19/Synik 22 and Synapse 25/Synik 30 Freudian Slips will be restocked 2/26.
    Other Freudian Slips (Cafe Bags, Maker's, etc.) will be restocked in March or available for pre-order.

    Although the #2 Nik’s Wallet is no longer listed, up to the time they removed it from the product page they had remaining wallets in this version in Grass and Viridian. So my guess is that if you’re interested in the #2 in either of these colors, you can get in touch with Customer Service to buy one. I happen to use one of these in Viridian to keep my Global Entry card and airline loyalty cards with my passport. See my post (#27 dated 12-17-2018) in the Nik's New Minimalist Wallets thread for pictures. I’ll excerpt a couple:


    (This is the original version RFID blocking Passport Pouch in Northwest Sky. The #2 Nik’s Wallet in Viridian fits easily next to my Passport)

    @Darcy , Any word on whether the Colored Zipper Ghost Whale Organizer Pouches in spacer Mesh might be restocked?

    How do you pre-order a Synapse 25 in colors not on the website?

    You can't...

    The pre-order system is explained here https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/pre-orders
    Pre-orders bag type & fabric combo are decided by TB ahead of time, opened up for ordering in a window of time, and then that pre-order closes and TB gets to making those bags.

    There was a pre-order of 13 bags in early February, so that's what Darcy is referring to. The system allows us as buyers to add an in stock bag to that preorder and hold the shipping so that it's one cost - or pay for the second set of shipping to have the in stock bag(s) ship out.

    The Synapse 25s will be restocked (vs a pre-order) on Friday this week at 7am Pacific time. If you want a color combo that isn't listed as in stock or in production for the S25, you can always ask for it in Wish List thread and TB will take note of how many people seem to want a particular combo.

    Definitely keep asking questions, it's a little confusing if you're new here 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...
