    Tom does still plan to design a Pilot, but I can't yet venture a guess as to when it would be available. A dedicated 13" Cadet is unlikely to happen soon.
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine prototype, Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes

    Thank you, Darcy, I appreciate the update. I will abandon my quest for a Pilot and a 13" Cadet, and continue to search for alternatives. I did, however, order the iPad Cadet which is supposed to arrive in 8 more days. Have a great Thanksgiving!
    I have an Aeronaut (Black/Iberian), Brain Bag (Black/Steel) Smart Alec (Black/Black/Steel), 2 Cadets for iPad (Black/Steel) and (Steel/Solar), 2 Co-Pilots (Steel/Solar) and (Black/Steel), Imago (Black/Black/Steel), plus a Vertical Brain Cell, Vertical Freudian Slip, Packing Cubes, Organizer Pouches, 2 RFID Blocking Passport Pouches, iPad Cache, Snake Charmer, Organizer Wallet, and plethora of other accessories! Man,what does it take to get on the FOT list?

    I second that. I have a Smart Alec lined with Solar, and it's really easy to find things in there.

    While I'm typing: I'd also like comparison shots, say, The Smart ALec, Brain Bag, and Synapse all next to each other. And the three Cafe Bags, and...you get the idea.

    I'd love to see what you guys could do with a messenger bag that REALLY is a messenger bag. One that's designed for being on the shoulder of someone on a bike. I feel like what you make now are more "shoulder bags" for lack of a better term.

    Same here. Maximum Carry-On Size "Tri-Star Max (22x14x9)" would be on my 2012 wish list. Steel/solar combo + Absolute strap.

    OK this may not work for you but I just had an idea.

    Is it possible to use a toilet paper roll core or paper towel core for your ties? I would actually cut a slit all the way down so the core opens up into a U shape. But could you roll your tie up (fold it in half, then roll it up) and then slide it into a core? Would that scrunch your tie up too much, even if you've cut the core open? You can adjust the width of the core to fit your ties, but if you could keep them rolled up like that (and maybe even using a rubber band or ponytail hair band to keep it from unfurling), would that be something that can fit in your Packing Cube Shoulder Bag?

    Bah! You can doo eet!

    Honestly, if you can pack for a 1-week trip, you don't really need a whole lot more for the second week.

    Probably the best place to start is Rick Steves' packing tips (Pack Smart and Travel Light by Rick Steves). He also has a packing list for both men and women. Use that as your basis, and adjust from there.

    There's a product that works similarly to what I think you're describing that I do use for short trips that only require a couple ties. It's a plastic tube, closed on one end and open on the other. The open end has a cap of sorts with a split stick that the tie wraps around. The tube holds it all together. It works well for most ties, and is probably better for the tie than folds that can create creases. I just don't love them for some reason. I seem to prefer having my ties flat--folded in third or fourth.
