    Post Get them before they're gone!

    We'll post updates to this thread when we're retiring a design or color combination in an effort to alert you guys so that you can get them before they're gone.

    Why is the small going? It looks like the perfect size! I would love a small in Iberian, and would even break the budget to buy it now if it were disappearing...

    We've decided to continue making the Small Shop Bag. It's available for pre-order in Ultraviolet.

    Second! But, because we all have our favorites, can we please have it in Iberian? Pretty please?

    Hi, Darcy. I remember, at one time you said the Small SB would be made with longer handles (same as the Large SB). What was the final decision? Thanks.

    I got the small shop bag because of the length of the handles. I'm 5'3" and love that the small doesn't drag on the ground.

    And to add to the echo, any chance for it in Iberian? Guaranteed I would get one. The Iberian surpasses the "but I don't *need* it" issue.

    Indigo 1050 ballistic nylon is leaving, making way for new colors that will come soon. Now is your last chance to get Indigo bags -- we just used the last of our Indigo fabric to make the Tri-Star in Indigo/Solar.

    Darcy,

    No more Indigo? That is tragic news! Any hints as to what will replace it? Should I get spares of my favourite Indigo/Solar bags - the Tristar and the Synapse?

    And what will be your standard pairing now for Solar linings? Indigo was your main match for Solar. Hint, Conifer would go beautifully with Solar....

    Hi, Darcy.

    First, this is a great thread. It's wonderful to get a head's-up on last chances.

    Second, may I suggest that some darkish blue should always be in the product line? Red, yellow, and blue are the basic colors. Purple is not a substitute for blue.

    Wow! I didn't expect Indigp to be retired so soon.

    I'm glad I have my Tristar and Synapse in Indigo/Solar. Is this only a warning about the last of the Indigo bags in Ballistic nylon (Aeronaut, Tristar, and the like, including the Kit accessory)? Or are you discontinuing the Cordura offerings, too? Will the new color work with ultraviolet?

    On the synapse page it says the synapse in indigo/solar will be available in march. True? or wishful thinking??? (as she roots through the website looking for indigo bags she might regret not buying...)

    Sorry, everyone, for the confusion: 1000d Indigo (used as an exterior color for the Synapse) will be around for a while. It's the 1050d ballistic nylon that is no longer. No hints as to what will replace it -- you'll have to wait and see!
