    For what it is worth, I got a minute tear in the bottom of one of my halcyon large shopping bags two or three years ago. I did contact customer service, and there was not a good repair for it, but...

    Super stuffed large shop bag and the brave checkout person at Trader Joe’s on Christmas eve eve for the win! I had what felt like a ridiculous number of items, since I have no groceries, and I asked...
  5. Travel blanket - any recommendations? (I'm in the UK)

    I will second @haraya’s Rumpl recommendation. I have several of their synthetic throws at home. And the great thing if you have pets is that the sleeping bag type material does not retain fur. My...

    My TC is helping me organize my wallet, phones and ticket as I begin a one way flight to DC. Some of the party are less excited about the travel aspect.

    Given the at times significant investment point of these bags, I am grateful for the fair return policy on bags. As @youronur mentioned, sometimes you just need to handle it in person to know it is...

    While the Trucks may be slightly less practical when it is raining, I love their added bit of structure for carrying things, and that they are comfortable to shoulder carry. Also, they are less...

    I picked up a deep blue Pick-up Truck and a saffron gold Shepherd's Cloth. Very excited about these! I didn't try for a Monster Truck, but I am amazed how fast those all sold out.

    I am a fan of the non greenish hued batches of steel (personal preference), and I will forever miss the steel dyneema/halcyon, as that was the perfect shade of steel IMHO.

    You may get a kick out...

    Trip to Victoria BC via boat and bus to see the Butchart gardens with my Synik 22. I was very grateful for the space to carry layers and hands free mobility.

  18. Want to help us test a Strap Keeper design?

    It sounds silly, but I could not be any more psyched about these new strap keepers based on my first impressions. As a non tall person, I always seem to have long, dangly, excess straps, if I have...
