    Any Target Dates?

    I know it's not a big deal like a new Apple gadget, but I can't be the only one awaiting word of a new messenger/laptop bag. Even if it's just a month, it would help some of us plan our financial strategy better. If something is really good, a few of us will need to be buying two to preserve domestic harmony?

    It's all happening very soon. We're working long hours right now preparing for everything. November will certainly be a fun month. And, again: it's mostly not anything anyone is expecting...

    November is close enough. As to something we're not expecting is really intriguing.

    Shooting from the hip guesses,

    1. Tom is going to come out with an entirely new fabric that is not linty like the cordura, lighter than ballistic nylon and without the grid pattern of the dyneema.
    2. The new "Pilot" will have either a sling option not unlike the retired "buzz" or a knapsack option as well the shoulder strap.

    3. "Portable culture" will have a comeback.. (That's more of a wish)

    No, maybe there will be a new Santa bag that simply expands to carry everything you want to throw into it. And Tom will volunteer to show good the padded strap really is when it is loaded...

    Kind of like another clown car bag...in Iberian dyneema...maybe with the new black dyneema trim...with a super long key strap and a red guardian light attached...sigh....a girl can dream, can't she?

    That's a Synapse, isn't it? ;-)

    Really looking forward to the unveiling of the new bags. I'm actually holding off on m next Tom Bihn order because I'm curious what else is being offered. I'm getting anxious to place my order regardless.
