    +1 to everything knitting related.

    Also, more FJN accessories. Granted the FJN already has most of the angles covered (pen storage, pouches, ruler), but there a few more that would be nice (tabbed dividers!) and it's so hard to find good sources for Classic sized binders.

In short, I would like an elegant, high-quality way to carry a full suit with sport coat in an Aeronaut or Tri-Star without having to rely on aftermarket accessories from other companies.

    [edit]

    3: The recent revelation of the new Colored Key Straps are wonderful. I would like to see a long version of these colored straps.

    [edit]
    I love these ideas. I also like the idea of a bag to carry a Go board -- but Go boards and stones come in soooo many sizes. (My Xmas wishlist for next year includes a board from http://www.kurokigoishi.co.jp/english/index.html but I need to start saving as of yesterday to get a "bargain" board.)

    I'm not a knitter, but a crocheter; however, I have a set of 12 bamboo Tunisian crochet hooks that are up to a little more than 12" long. The slimmer hooks are quite fragile. A case that protected them (that is, a hard case of some kind) would be awesome. I would imagine that would also work for bamboo knitting needles! The current Pen and Pencil Clear Plastic Organizer works very well for my regular-size hooks.

    In the annoyingly esoteric category, I would like to request O-rings be placed in the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. In general, one can never have enough O-rings, I find! They are the greatest thing ever.

    3d padded organizer pouches?

    how about 3d padded organizer pouches for holding things like point and shoot cameras?

    and a smaller buzz that accommodates the 11" macbook air, ipad, netbooks, and other similarly sized devices? perhaps with the laptop compartment made more like the one in the ristretto - where there is a flap, but the flap would be parallel to the horizontal side of the laptop.

    along the lines of the keystraps, how about a watch strap made from 1000d cordura fabric or webbing? something like a ZULU or NATO watch strap, but with a cool tom bihn twist! maybe with a mini warrior buckle!

    I completely agree and would buy one of these immediately. Please!

    Talking

    A suggestion for the actual website: photos or even diagrams of the bags in relation to size. For example - pictures of people (with their height listed) with the bags. Or for similar style bags - comparison photos together. Example - the three sizes of the cafe bags, the Tri-Star compared to the Western Flyer.

    And one last "fantasy" dream bag on the wish list:
    If you've read the book "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the character of Hermione carries a beaded evening bag that has been enchanted so that one can pack up practically the equivalent of a house into the small bag without it appearing any larger or heavier.

    (Well, if anyone could do it - it would be Tom!)

    I'd go for one the size of a Side effect, and it doesn't even have to be beaded! Mary Poppins' carpet bag is took big to carry around each day.

    I'd like a cover for the Aeronaut that protects it when checked and keeps people from opening zippers as you stand around. It could also double as a carry on bag for when you buy too much on vacation.

    Maybe some of these are known as "not likely", but...


    • 1000D Cordura in a shade like Cayenne, burnt orange, spicy orange, etc. Yum - a Swift in Olive-Cayenne and Cayenne-Plum (or vice-versa)! Or an Imago (like) bag in this new orange shade...
    • More 1000D Cordura colors. Never really seen a darker mauve or darker fuchsia (something along those lines).
    • Maybe more "colorful" Ballistic colors, if there will be more Ballistic styles.


    Looking forward to what TB 2011 brings!

    Parental Unit

    Parental Unit is +1 for me.... all the comments about it, a Pilot and other rumors defer my buying!! More product launches... more inserts for bags (lens, diaper pad),etc...

    Thanks! Happy New Year all!

    no longer in production should still have web pages

    I'd like you to keep the web pages for discontinued products up, they would be handy for reference, for instance (such as just what will fit in the discontinued Brain Cell I have). A list of colors an item was available in would also be useful.
