    Yea, the Navy/Storm/Sapphire Imago was a great color combination, and I was sad to see this go. I didn't buy one, though, since I already had two Imagos. (See what I mean about exercising restraint?).

    Hey, I only got two -- and the add-on of the Dyneema version of the Synapse only got made after they published the picture.

    You know you're a loyal Tom Bihn customer when...

    You have an item on pre-order/back-order and see this as a good thing because you can keep adding to the order to save on shipping.
    Bags: Super Ego (Black/indigo w/cork seatbelt); Aeronaut (Crimson/Steel); 2 Medium Cafe Bags (Navy/Cayenne, Linen/Olive), w/an Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap; Large Cafe Bag (Cocoa/Wasabi) w/Absolute Strap; Imago (sadly lost to hazmat); a Brain Cell w/ another Strap Wrap; and a Shop Bag (Steel). Accessories: Bunches and bunches.
    Wanted: Zephyr or Empire Builder.

    I have apparently been spending too much time on Facebook, because I was just looking for the "like" button!

    i was out shopping for clothes today, and i found myself putting together various outfits in tom bihn bag color combinations. cocoa shorts and a wasabi t-shirt; navy shorts and a cayenne t-shirt. now i really want to find a pair of plum shorts to go with the wasabi t-shirt i picked up...

    think about it - plum shorts, wasabi t-shirt, with a plum/wasabi ristretto!

    You just had a dream in which you were ordering the large Shop Bag in the new color of Dyneema (not yet actualized) from this site!

    We'll get swatches to you, moriond, and maverick of the new color as soon as we have them.

    We will only have enough fabric initially for a few swatches, and while we're taking a photo of the new color to share with everyone else, we thought it would help for the moderators of the forum to have actual samples so they can describe the color as the color in the photo could appear different on different screens, etc.

    So watch your mail!!
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine prototype, Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes

    ... You sleep with your new TB at your side because it's a bag that finally manifests so many of your long-standing wishes.

    ... You stuff and display some of your TBs around your workspace so you can look at them from time to time and swoon.
