    Well, Darcy, can you tell us a little more about the little Aeronaut. Maybe if we fall in love, we can preorder.
    The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

    It's still a tad strange that the largest "out of stock" memo in recent Tom Bihn history just happens to coincide with today's date.
    :-/

    But,
    If this is not a lucid dream, I second the thought of a brief "Portable Culture" come back on this limited run.
    :-)

    If they're out of so much material, maybe the Little Aeronaut will come as a patchwork!

    ERMAHGERD. Just place an order for the PCSB and TT in Nordic and a double organizer pouch. This is a dream come true....I did show some self restraint and didn't order the Nordic Aeronaut PCBP. I may change my mind. And I'm still trying to justify an order for a Nordic Synapse 19 when I already have one in olive/steel. Still madly in love with my Nordic/steel WF and small Nordic shop bag. Ahhhhhh, Nordic.

    Yeah… I did think about waiting to post this until tomorrow but wanted to make sure to give everyone a head's up as soon as I could before more Steel, Iberian, or Wasabi things (or lined things) go on backorder. Plus, what could top this?!

    No return of the Portable Culture label is on the horizon (I think we're out, anyway).
    Current Carry: 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

    I can't wait to see the Travel Tray in Nordic (and the Packing Cube Backpack in Black Dyneema -- I'm definitely claiming one of those). As soon as we have samples… I'll take some photos and post 'em here.

    Count me in for these key straps, too!

    I'm going to paraphrase my recent quote in yesterday's Does Tom Bihn really exist and what does he look like? thread to go back to the original version: Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

    Umm, Darcy, as long as you're making like a fairy godmother and taking requests: is there any chance that you'll finally make the regular size Shop Bag in Iberian, once you get restocked in 200d Iberian Dyneema? I haven't wanted to request this since the last time I asked and you said that you were thinking of discontinuing that size Shop Bag! (Even when you relented and released the Ultraviolet Shop Bag, I've still been nervous).

    Thanks,

    Regular size shop bag? I thought they came in small or large...? If you mean the small shop bag, I will absolutely squee if they finally release a small shop bag in Iberian!!!!

Our friends at the expert mill in Japan that weave and dye the fabric for us have already been hard at work for several weeks making more. Still, we're out, and that means for the short term, we won't be able to make more bags with those as linings or exteriors. Just to be extra sure we're clear: those colors aren't going away, we've just run out of them -- temporarily. That means that you'll see those colors as options removed from some bags (to appear again later most likely), or put out of stock with very far into the future ship dates (June, anyone?). Some bags won't be affected at all because we managed to save enough of those three colors to make production runs currently in progress (Aeronaut!)

    Note this means that the debut of the smaller Aeronaut is also slightly delayed: the bag is done, we're just waiting to get more 200d Dyneema/nylon to line 'em with.

    There is a silver (Dyneema? ha ha.. ehh..) lining to all of this: we're making limited production runs of the some accessories in 400d Dyneema/nylon in Black, Nordic, and Steel. Yup! This will be your one chance ever to order those bags in those fabrics, and they're up for pre-order now:

    Travel Tray, Black and Nordic
    Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, Black and Nordic
    Packing Cube Backpack (Aeronaut), Black, Nordic, and Steel
    Packing Cube Backpack (Tri-Star/Western Flyer), Black, Nordic, and Steel

    Outside of the color choice of the above "limited edition" offering,
    one thing I would be looking forward to would be the extra heft / stiffness that the 400 dyneema would provide.
    (Yes, just when I thought I could a break for a little while of refreshing the shopping cart function.)

    Hmmm,
    This doesn't feel like Kansas any more,
    I better not tap my heels three times.

    Okey, I just placed jet another order. But I love this nordic dynemma so much!

    If I could get a wish fullfiled it would be a Smart Alac like this: The Orphaned Smart Alec from bchaplin. We are five persons in this houshold. So far a have (some are pending) one Backpack for every back now. So it is time for a second round as bag ups, isn't it.

    urk! I really want a PCBP in Wasabi, but I don't know whether I need to order one for my Tri-Star and the Western Flyer that may be in my future, or if I should wait to see what might fit in the Juniornaut. Western Flyer or Juniornaut? Indecision is a beast.


    Half an hour later, I broke down and ordered the Western Flyer and a PCBP.

    "Note this means that the debut of the smaller Aeronaut is also slightly delayed: the bag is done, we're just waiting to get more 200d Dyneema/nylon to line 'em with."

    Seriously? You couldn't just put us out of our misery now? I need to know if this bag is going to work for my travels this summer!
