    Sounds enticing. By the way, I've determined that my snake charmer is one of my most reliable workhorse items. Originally, it was just going to be the repository of my laptop power cord and perhaps my phone charger. Now, there's a "charger side", which has power cords and associated detritus for: laptop, cell phone, USB headset and PDA, along with a couple packs of AA and AAA batteries. On the other side, there's an ethernet cable, a couple thumb drives on a lanyard, a few pens, a laser pointer for training classes, a cordless mouse and its little USB plug, and perhaps a few other things I can't remember. One glance tells me which side is facing me, since it's mesh, not solid. It sits happily at the bottom of my SmartAlec, and is always findable by feel, because of the mesh and handy loop on top.

    The Snake charmer isn't sexy, expensive or big on the ooh and aaah factor, but the damn thing is irreplaceable. So hey, another color might be nice.
    It's worth considering that your entire purpose in life could be to serve as a warning to others.

    Posted your post on the blog.

    The Snake Charmer is available again in Olive in this current batch. Next batch, we'll do Sapphire.

    I would love to have one in Wasabi to match my recent ID and braincell.

    Sorry, no Wasabi in this batch: maybe next time? We've already committed to making the Snake Charmer in Sapphire and Plum for this next batch...

    Guess I will wait. *hopes for color luck*

    While we are at it. Any chance of a Hunter/Hunter/Wasabi(like the cacao one) Imago to go along with my Hunter Aeronaut? I know there is a Hunter/Cork/Sage and Hunter/steel one, but I dont like the cork fabric.

    Oh, get the cork fiber if you can. You won't be sorry. I only have a small cork pouch, and it's very nice. The cork accent on the Hunter Imago is very handsome.
    Using a: Super Ego (Black, Steel, Wasabi) with seat belt strip (Wasabi), and alternate reflective Strip. Black BrainCell, Wasabi Snake Charmer, Cork Small Organizer Pouch, and Olive green medium organizer pouch.

    Sorry, no luck here: we're out of the Hunter fabric, and there will be no more of it.

    My bad on this. There won't be any Plum Snake Charmers. The Snake Charmer is now made out of 500d Cordura instead of 1000d Cordura. Plum is a 1000d fabric. Sorry! We will be making the Snake Charmer in Sapphire, though.
