    Those designs can be hard to pull off successfully imo (though not impossible). In particular, I hate when the backpack straps are one long shoulder strap loosely threaded through a loop, because...

    Darcy Not sure how anyone else did but I for one found the checkout process MUCH less stressful than usual this morning. Thank you guys for working to fix that!!

    Same, I've never had an issue with the straps. And I love my Luminary! It's one of the few backpacks where I can easily reach back and grab my cell phone out of one of the side pockets without taking...

    Darcy This may be a dumb question but how will we know when the 24 hour window opens? I just signed up for the newsletter for the first time this month so I don't know for sure if I'll receive it....

    For what it's worth, I don't really care whether the water bottle pocket attaches to the back panel or not. I just want something there to keep it upright. (I've used that pocket to hold bottles...

    :-/ I hope repairs are happening now, I just sent a Makers Bag back for a zipper replacement.

    And I definitely agree with you and the others about the water bottle pocket, I really wish there was...

    organicfarmer I'm not Darcy but I for one love the option of a Halcyon fabric with a more subtle grid. I don't mind the white grid for interiors but as an exterior fabric it looks too busy and...

    So, the post office is giving us lower performance and higher prices? Sigh. Gotta love those government organizations.

    Darcy Any chance of some Tidal pics here for those of us who aren't on FB? :)

    I tried to do this but it didn't work. (I *thought* I was already subscribed to the newsletter from before but it let me sign up again so maybe not? I haven't received the confirmation email this...

    The big thing for me is the waist strap attachment points. TB is the ONLY place I know of that puts these on their messenger bags and they are a total game changer for me with my bad back. I normally...

    I noticed that too! I was bummed when I saw that change. I'm hoping it's a glitch, or that they'll add more colors soon.

    Not that I need any more Maker's Bags, although that hasn't stopped me yet..

    Happy to help!

    I cut the original buckle with the dremel as well, but it doesn't need to be hidden the way the cut in the Fidlock does, so that gives you some wiggle room to be careful. You could...

    My recommendation is to not wait if something is in stock now, unless you're sure it's not going to run out. A lot of people do large orders on release day and things go quickly. You may miss out on...

    Tycho Here you go, hope this helps! I couldn't get a full picture of the cut but hopefully you can get an idea of what I did. And the second picture is my attempt to show the bottom part that loosens...

    Sure, I'll take pictures when I get home. As far as the warranty, I'm no authority at TB but I would assume it would only void the warranty for that component, like when people cut the zipper pulls. ...

    Darcy Is there any estimate on the next round of restocks, by chance? :D

    I replaced the buckle on my Makers Bag with a plastic Fidlock buckle (got it for about $12 on eBay). I was able to unthread the bottom buckle and I used a dremel tool to make a slanted cut in the...

    I appreciate the suggestion but I'm not sure how well that shape would work for things like waist straps. I think it would twist or pinch any strap it's connected to once it's bearing weight. (Unless...

    Just thought of something else--I'd kill for a gatekeeper clip design that's easier to open (and to a lesser extent, close). There's been many instances when I want to add or remove something (a...

    I don't think I was wearing a coat the first time it happened (over the summer) but I wouldn't be surprised if the fleece jacket I was wearing yesterday contributed to the issue.
