Request to purchase 5/8 shoulder strap and camera I/O dividers to accessories purchas
I should be sending this email to the good folks at TB, but I thought I'd post it here as I am in no hurry (waiting for the new Side Effect) and perhaps other folks are interested.
At this time the 5/8 shoulder strap can only be purchased with one of the 3D cubes and the dividers can only be purchased with the Camera I/O.
I would like to purchase one of the 5/8 should strap to use with a dyneema 3D cube purchased earlier. I would also like to purchase a couple of the Camera I/O small dividers.
So I would like to request that these items be made available to purchase on their own via the Accessories page.
I have a growing wish list waiting for the Side Effect. Perhaps, a shoulder strap and a couple Camera I/O small dividers will join them soon in the waiting???

Reason: Title needs editing
I apologize for the thread title. It was supposed to read: Request to purchase 5/8 shoulder strap and camera I/O dividers via accessories purchase page.
I don't know how to fix it!
You may be able to find some straps with 5/8" webbing on camera cases and the like if you wanted to cannibalize components and make your own.
@Walker You can probably order these items by calling the Tom Bihn 800 number. I actually prefer using the lighter strap that they supplied with the discontinued Breve to the Simple strap that you can order with the packing Cube Shoulder Bag. there's a picture in one of my posts in the Diaper Cube for Imago? thread. Darcy responded by saying, yes, you could buy any of these other straps separately.

@ Jujigatame, I repurpose a lot of things. But some items are just easier to buy. Thanks for the suggestion, though!
I am waiting for the new Side Effect to place an order. I have a growing wish list.

@Walker sadness! Well, calling in should let you purchase the 5/8" shoulder strap that gets included with current Side Effect purchases. I see what you mean about not being able to order it by itself from the web site, even though there are options to add it on for $3.

I'm also waiting for the new Side Effects in Nordic 400D Dyneema. By the way, I keep thinking that my top modular pocket for the Smart Alec (in Aubergine Dyneema) would make a great separate bag to carry with the old Breve shoulder strap. I know it's not designed for this, with the Gatekeeper clip attachments to hook onto the Snart Alec -- but just sayin', you know!
@moriond, I lost one if the small Camera I/O dividers, soon after receiving the bag. - bag comes with 2 of them. They are also great for creating vertical compartments in I/O bag - for stacking items separately. They are the perfect size. I also like the gray color - makes it easier to see the mostly black accessories.
I agree about the SA upper pocket - even if I have not seen it. In fact, I keep imagining that it will be a better organizer inside my Swift - I currently use the PCSB for that purpose. I use the Swift as a purse, not as a knitting bag. What do you think? I thought of buying one to try, but I did not want to deal with removing the gatekeeper clips.
