Likely some time in March….
Great question. At this point, we only plan to offer the Pilot in ballistic/dyneema or dyneema/dyneema (no Parapack).
And though we think we might offer the Pilot for pre-order at some point soon,...
One exterior side of the Founder’s Briefcase has two zippered pockets, and the other side has none... there’s a TOM BIHN label on both sides, so there really isn’t a front and back, but rather two...
Just hypothetically… which of these color combinations would you like to see it made in? Note that if the Pilot was made available for pre-order soon, we'd make maybe four or five of these color...
Working on it… here's Steel:
Hehe! Nice one.
Me! In Olive:
Starring Beth Whitman and Jon from Wanderlust and Lipstick, Ahna and Ryan of 3form, and our very own tCook.
Late breaking news! We figured out how we could bake chocolate chip cookies right there in the store, so tomorrow + Saturday's openings should be even better than we thought...
Definitely 1050d ballistic nylon exterior lined with 200d Dyneema/nylon. Likely a 400d Dyneema exterior as well.
As far as a date when it will be available for pre-order… that I don't yet know,...
I think this is a great point (and I can see how the wording re: the policy on the Cord Zipper Pulls page was confusing -- we'll be updating that!)
The Guide's Pack and Founder's Briefcase both come with enough Coyote and Red cord pulls for each zipper pull. Here's how we like to add them to the pulls:
We're fairly experienced hikers and backpackers around here and we chose not to include a padded waist belt because we don't think it's always necessary, especially for day hikes. Tom uses the...
To clarify: the warrantee is voided on the pulls, so, in other words, if you remove the pulls yourself and then decide that was a bad idea, we won't replace the pulls under the lifetime guarantee....
As promised… here's a video that demonstrates how to adjust the internal frame in The Guide's Pack:
Are those persimmons? What are you going to make?
There's definitely a Pilot in the works. In fact, I may have seen a prototype of it yesterday…. no estimated pre-order or debut date right now, though.
Update! We talked with our webbing folks and came up with a solution: going forward, Small and Medium Cafe bags will be made with a softer, more playable webbing, much (pretty much the same,...
Shown in the video is the Black/Steel color scheme. Our factory is making the Founder's Briefcase now, so it shouldn't be too long before we get to see the other colors.
Yeah! That's the change I was referring to.
I'd offer that, IMHO, if the color choices have changed, it's because there's more variety/more choices now (Olive/Wasabi, Navy/Ultraviolet,...
Pocketz and tCook are right, but so are you: I think you'll see a padded waist belt for The Guide's Pack by sometime early next year.
