    I'd definitely like to see more bags in ballistic nylon. It's definitely one of my favorite materials.

    I'd like to see a "Spartan Flyer", a lighter and simplier derivative of Western Flyer. Having same outer dimensions as WF, but only single main compartment, only one horizontal front pocket and no backstraps. Trying to squeeze the weight and improve the versatility by enabling occasional packing of bulkier things. And still maintaining the proper business outlook.

    Every now and then I have such one night business trips that in addition to razor, toothbrush and notebook I only need a working overall and rubber boots in my luggage. And those boots are for sure heavy, so everything else needs to be made as lightweight as bossible. Or then I just want the space for presents bought from abroad.

    I think the only things I would like are a travel tray and a couple of organizer pouches.

    Makes me a cheap date I guess.

    LOL...easy to please, for sure. Do you like the travel tray and OPs as they are? You don't need any changes to them, like making the OPs left-handed or adding another tier to the travel tray?

    Nope, I like 'em just as they are.

    In fact I think I would like a travel tray to use as my catch-all (I guess it's called a valet?) for keys and other pocket items at the end of the day. Right now all that stuff just goes on top of a bookshelf by the front door and it slides all over and falls off and gets hidden under mail, etc. I could use a little organization there.

    No hidden backpack straps? Nooooo!!!

    I do, however, like the idea of just one compartment. Actually, maybe they could offer one with, and one without hidden backpack straps.

    And actually, a smaller Western Flyer (hey, maybe a Northwestern Flyer, Eastern Flyer or a Pacific Flyer?) with just one front pocket (that horizontal zip one in the front) and just one main compartment? That would be an awesome weekender/carryon. Hideaway backpackstraps would still be nice, though. I like those. ^_^

    I'd love one that has D-rings so I could actually remove the shoulder straps, like a Risretto. It would make them more packing-friendly.

    Hmm. Which conference is that, Badger? Thanks to Katy and Brian, my TB order will come tomorrow, before I leave for a conference. And now I'm thinking maybe the Cadet instead of the new Ristretto for 13" MBP ... maybe...

    Eh--it's a large academic conference, at which at least two people will be carrying TB bags (me and my Cadet-obsessed colleague). Hopefully I'll get my IRB approval in time. Gah.

    It's always awesome when stuff arrives just in the nick of time.

    I'd like a 3D Organizer cube in Solar Dyneema and an Ego (Black/Navy) lined in Solar Dyneema.

    I like Solar Dyneema

    I'd also love a smaller Aeronaut. I know it's designed to fit all sizes, but considering that my 5'0" frame can't really handle the Brain Bag, I doubt the Aeronaut would work at all. Right now, when we travel, I put the Packing Cube Backpacks into a very, very, very large tote bag (we haven't done anything but road trips since Rosalind is still under a year old and flying with dogs is complicated), but I would love to be able to use the Aeronaut.
    I have : many pouches & wallets & 3D Cubes & CQPCs & Stuff Sacks & Shop Bags, plum & black (C) & black/UV & aubergine/UV (B) Side Effects, steel/UV Citizen Canine, black FJN, plum/wasabi SCB, Cork Little Swift, black/steel Co-Pilot, old plum/olive (C) & black/UV (D) LCB, plum/black (C) Swift, old plum/olive (C) Imago, old plum/wasabi Ruck's Sac, steel WF/TS PCB, plum/solar & black/UV (C) & steel/UV (D) Synapses, black/iberian Smart Alec, steel Brain Bag.

    So far, I think I've got two items on my wish list:

    1) Pilot-- I love my synapse that my wife gave me for christmas, now I want a similar shoulder bag, and I think the co-pilot might be smaller than I want for my personal item on flights.
    2) very simple, lightweight dyneema garment bag to hold 2-3 suits plus a couple dress shirts. Just one pocket needed for ties or other loose items. Fold in half or thirds. Hook for hanging the bag over a door or rod.

    YESSSS! Or even a not quite as light weight one made in (Azalea) Cordura!!! I would love a garment bag big enough for at least three suits, a pocket for one pair of shoes, A pocket for my hose (2-3 pair) and a pocket for additional small items (hair clips, small belt rolled up, etc.) With a hook for hanging but also allow the hangers to come thru and be the hanger as well.
