“My almost 2 month wait has finally ended! This week I received my box of Dyneema orders from TB and all I can say is WOW!! I love this material as an outer material for bags particularly the Synapse 25 (Seel/wasabi).” — WenV

RWB Pocket Pouch

RWB POUCHES ARE SOLD OUT! Thanks to everyone who placed an order over the past couple of days; you’ve kept us pretty busy today! Note that we’re pretty much out of the limited edition RWB Pocket Pouch at this point and the window for ordering one is now over.

Limited Edition 4th of July Pocket Pouch

We came up with a limited edition RWB Pocket Pouch to celebrate Independence Day. It’s made out of our Cardinal Red U.S. 1050d ballistic nylon, features contrasting Sapphire Blue trim and is lined with Iberian Red Dyneema/nylon with its signature white ripstop grid. Just so there is no doubt about it, we added a “Made in USA” label just to remind everyone where we make our stuff.

Place an order over $20 now (today, Wednesday, July 3rd) through Friday, July 5th at 12:30pm Pacific Time, put “RWB Pocket Pouch” in the comments box during checkout, and we’ll include a complimentary RWB Pocket Pouch in your order. This applies to pre-orders or backorders as well: we’ll include the RWB Pocket Pouch in your order whenever your order ships.

(Remember that the colors red, white and blue are also the national colors of Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, the Czech Republic, France, Iceland, Liberia, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, the Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Thailand, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. So even if you don’t live in the U.S., you might still like this pouch.)

The fine print: if the RWB Pocket Pouch proves even more popular than we expected, we could possibly run out. We’ll make more (as long as we have the materials to do so) but it might mean that your order will be delayed up to a few days while we catch up. Please note that we cannot add the RWB Pocket Pouch to existing pre-orders or backorders or orders placed prior to this announcement. This can be the unfun part of something otherwise so much fun — we love to be spontaneous and make something special to offer to everyone, but, no matter when we time the announcement or how much advance warning we give, some people will have ordered just before (or just after) the window for getting the special thing. The best we can offer: this won’t be the last time we do something like this!

And hey: hope you have a fun holiday!

The beauty of the familiar

The intimate beauty of the familiar.

“The special quality of beauty in crafts is that it is a beauty of intimacy. Since the articles are to be lived with every day, this quality of intimacy is a natural requirement. The beauty of such objects is not so much of the noble, the huge or the lofty as the beauty of the familiar. People hang art high up on the walls, but they place objects for everyday use close to them, and take them into their hands.”
