    Lux bag for sale?

    This weekend I got a chance to see the Lux bag in this article:

    (Amy from Knitty.com showed it to me at our Stitch'n'Bitch).

    http://www.gearlive.com/index.php/ne...view_05011111/

    And I love, love, love it. We were plotting ways to grab it and run.

    The article says the bag is for sale, but I don't see it on your site. Is it available?

    Yes, looks interesting. Couldn't find this bag in a search of the site. When will it be available?

    Soon. Within a couple months. There are just a couple more details to be worked out that will make it even cooler than it already is.

    The first edition of the LUX was sent to the American Top 40 Awards as a gift bag to be made available to Jessica Simpson, Usher, and Ryan Seacrest among others. Just typing those names makes me as giddy I am when reading US magazine!!

    Looks pretty cool! I've been looking around for a while for a cool medical bag (to carry stethoscope, blood pressure cuffs, penlight, pocketbooks, etc) and there's not much out there. Maybe this is it!

    I don't suppose you could indulge us, Darcy, with any extra info about the Lux bag while we wait? Sneak peak pictures, some description of what a "module" is and which ones might be available, dimensions, features....

    I've been using one for about a month now and it's my most favorite Tom Bihn bag ever! It looks so refined and sleek and it's just big enough for everything I carry but doesn't make me look super tiny like really big tote bags do.

    The LUX will have a zipper in the bottom that will accept various inserts - one for a laptop, one that adds more pockets and organizers (like an insert version of the Freudian Slip), an insert that will turn the LUX into a diaper bag, and others to come.

    Pictures will come soon, as will the exact dimensions.

    What kind of inserts would you like to see?

    Wonderful. What a great idea to have a bag that has interchangeable functions. I was going to call to order my bag today and then I saw this. I hope that it will be larger then the Buzz bag for those of us who have a standard size notebook. (= size 4 brain cell )

    If I had one bag that did everything I use different bags for it would include the following in addition to the extra organization.

    A bag for a relaxing day at the beach, park etc: room for books, mp3 player, a drink and some snacks, an extra sweater, and other outdoor supplies like sunglasses etc. Maybe my camera.

    What I take to work when I'm not carrying my laptop: notebooks, manuals, books, cellphone, pda, mp3 player, my lunch, water, detachable cardholder for credit cards, cash, business cards etc, other misc items. It would be nice to have some small detachable pouch for the cards and also my keys.

    There's more but those are my main uses besides a bag for my laptop.

    At this point we plan to make different sizes of the LUX but the first size will not really fit a Size 4 Brain Cell well. I can stuff my Brain Cell into my LUX but the way it stretches the bag it doesn't leave room for anything else. When I put my Powerbook in a Soft Cell (our new padded sleeve that will eventually replace the Mitre) and put it in vertically, it works a lot better but is still not as good a solution as just having a larger sized LUX would be. The first, standard size of the LUX will fit 12"/Size 5 laptops.

    We actually made a bunch of little pouches like you're talking about in various sizes and colors that attach to the bags via the key snap. Would you like one?

    Only to people who have already posted in this thread, so that includes you! That's it though because we're going to put these pouches on the Web site in the next couple weeks. PM or email me with your address.

    I'm waiting for the larger ones to come out. Is there any possibility there will be a place to hold a water bottle? That's pretty essential for me. That's part of what makes the buzz a perfect bag- except for size.

    Does this mean that the Size 5 Brain Cell fits in the first, standard size of the LUX? It would make a nice alternative to the Buzz, and the organizational pockets sound like a plus. I wish you would include plum in the color combination, although grape is brighter -- I'm basing this also on previous views of your utility tote.

    Does that mean me, too? (Hint, check your PM from a few days ago).

    I think I may have bought one of these guys at the store in Seattle, or is this a different product?

    Very useful, by the way. I'm not sure how I managed to leave it out of my little 'review'. I use it as a wallet, now. Cash, change, and card holder. Before it did that, it held my passport and Japanese currency (to keep it seperate from my USD).

    I'm extremely interested in the Lux... I might be traveling through Seattle by the end of October, what are the chances it'd be at the store's location by then?

    We do have the pouches in our Seattle store so it is likely that what you have is the pouch we're talking about. Glad you like it - I love mine! Depending on what I need to carry, I can use a small or large pouch. It helps keep things organized.

    It's almost certain the LUX will be available in the Seattle store by then. It is possible the LUX will sell out by then, so I'd suggest contacting us a little bit before your trip to make sure we have one in the store for you.
