The Compass is a small carry-on travel bag that Tom has been working on over the course of the last year. We’ve seen the latest prototype, and it’s perfect. Well, we think so: Tom has a little bit more tweaking to do. It’s a great size (probably smaller than you’re thinking) with great organization.
Field Journal Notebook:
Tom continues to refine the final details of the Field Journal Notebook as he uses the only existing prototype. By Tom’s best guesstimate, 105% of people who see it want it.
The Camera Insert is still in progress, not to worry. Tom has some exciting new leads on materials. What’s taking so long? We’re in search of the perfect fabric to laminate to the foam components that make up the Camera Insert. We’ve narrowed it down to two contenders – two high-tech fabrics. Both will need to be custom made for us, so don’t be making sandwiches and waiting by the phone.
Two more bags debuting in February:
A travel bag designed by Tom in Summer ’09 specifically for an event at the Kennedy Center. Perfect for those who don’t need or want hide-away backpack straps.
And: something that will allow you to take your iPhone river rafting, or read your Kindle in the bathtub.
