    Mad about SA upper modular pocket color discontinuation

    Hello,

    I bought my SA Verde color bag before christmas and decided to wait to try it out before buying the accessories as it was my first tom bihn bag. Now I really love my SA, but they stopped making the upper modular pocket in Verde right before I decided I wanted one! I don't really want to walk around with a green backpack and with black pockets....it just looks weird to me. Where can I find verde color upper modular pockets for sale used? I've posted an ad on a local buy/sell site with no response... Frown

    Or alternatively is it possible to return my Verde bag for a different color since they stopped making Verde accessories?

    Did you call TB customer support? They may (by luck) have one last UMP in the color you are looking for. Call quick!

    As for returning, I do not believe you can do this if it is used or past the 60 day refund/exchange period (unused and in original condition). Again, TB customer support will be able to assist.

    You could also add a post in the 2017 wish list.

    Hope this helps
    Cheers!

    Edit: Alternately, I have seen a Side Effect used instead of the UMP on an SA using gatekeeper clips. The Side Effect still comes in Verde. Here is a post from @Amy showing this:

    Also, the Guide's Pack Lead's Pocket comes in Olive - similar to the verde. I have, in the past attached it to the UMP mount points:

    Looks like there is a lower modular pocket in Verde--would that interest you?

    I would give the Verde/UV Side Kick a chance as a UMP. Add a couple of gatekeeper clips to your order, and then you can use the SK as a UMP in transit, then as a day bag when you arrive at your destination.

    Sorry for the late reply. Yeah, but if I can find someone selling both MP's together I will probably buy them both used. If not, I'll buy the verde LMP.

    I like the side-kick / side effect idea. Will try that if I can't find a used UMP.
