    So what did you order?!

    What great new TB products! I happily deferred a few retirement funds by choosing to invest in my TB lifetime fund! Below is a list of the items I just placed an order for. What are you most excited about of the new items? Did you also go a little crazy?!

    -Aeronaut 30 (steel/wasabi)--I would have loved Steel dyneema/Wasabi but it's not to be...
    -Travel Laundry Stuff Sack for the A30 (I LOVE this item) in ultraviolet
    -Packing cubes for the A30
    -Q-Kit (at first I thought this wasn't something I would use but then I realized it's exactly what I need for errant coins, small items on planes-trains-automobiles...)
    -Various other items I've been waiting to purchase until today's announcement (double organizer pouches, 3D organizer cube, etc.).

    I'm so happy, happy, happy with my order. Can't wait to get the items (going to Italy in mid-September!).

    A couple of Q-Kits will definitely go on my wish-list, but I'm holding out for more Pilots because the one I borrowed from @ceepee is awesome and I want one of my own!

    Where are you going in Italy? I've been to Venice and Florence - adore the former, found the latter fascinating but a little frenetic (probably because I went at Easter to see the flag-waving and fireworks)

    French Blue Daylight pack! Because 1) French Blue and 2) diagonal zipper front pocket. I also like the idea of a parapack-lined backpack; I've enjoyed having parapack inside my cafe bags.

    Plus a somber-colored Swift for work
    Wishlist: Black (Cordura)/UV S25; Aubergine/Steel SE; new 200D & 400D Dyneema fabrics; Imago v. 2

    An aubergine/wasabi "30"
    large and end packing cube for the "30"
    a medium double organizer pouch

    It is unlikely the 30 will get here before my trip to Greece in August, but I will rock it hard when I go to Rhinebeck in October.

    Ordered a TLSS in Ultraviolet for my A45, which I am using for the first time on a trip right now (and fit perfectly in the overhead of a CRJ700 thank you very much). Also ordered a cache for my iPad Air, some key straps and another stuff sack.

    I still have my one week old Tristar sitting at home ready for first use, and a Synapse 25 in black Dyneema enroute on the UPS truck.

    I got the A30 in steel/wasabi (I squealed so hard when I saw that color option)

    2 Q-Kits

    A steel PCSB to replace the one I traded in a deal with moriond for an Imago!

    SO EXCITED!

    I'm in two minds about a Burnt Orange Daylight Pack. I like the minimalist design, but I literally just took delivery of a Burnt Orange S19! Since the cost of returning it from the UK would be be pretty steep, I'm wondering whether I can justify having both when they're so close in capacity.....and, yes, it would have to be Burnt Orange

    I like the size and design of the Night Flight Travel Duffle but I'm thinking it could get too heavy for me to carry over one shoulder. The Aeronaut 30, although it has backpack straps, might be a little too large for my needs ...... They're both so tempting though

    I NEED about a million Q-Kits, though 2 is all I've ordered for now

    Hi Scribe,

    Although I've lived in France in the past and traveled throughout Europe before and since then, this will be my first trip to Italy so I'm excited! For this first trip we are going to the big three (Venice, Florence, Rome) with some brief side trips (Cinque Terre, etc.). All told it will be about 12 days in all. We're also doing a 2 day stop over in Istanbul on the way from the States (Turkish Air deal). I'm traveling with non-traveling family so while I typically do everything on my own, this time we're taking a tour with a company I've used once in the past called Intrepid; I believe they are out of Australia. We'll be in Rome on our own for a few days at the end. I'll take the A30 and some sort of cross-body bag for day.

    @ceepee, I'm right there with you! I have a Synapse 19 in navy/UV that I adore, but that Burnt Orange Daylight Pack is calling my name. I wonder if it would drive me crazy trying to decide which one to carry. As a knitter, I love that there are multiple pouches in which to place fibery projects! And the fact that it's extremely lightweight would be delightful for me, as my back is not being nice to me lately.

    I'm really excited seeing the announcements today!

    I need to take time to digest it all.

    But I did pull the trigger on a French Blue Daylight Backpack, since that is available now. I added to the order a Cache for my laptop, and a French Blue / Navy Small Cafe Bag.

    Ordered the Aeronaut 30 in Aubergine/Wasabi, Absolute Strap, one large, 2 small and one end pocket packing cubes, size 3 stuff sack and some odds and ends. I'm hoping they've overestimated the preorder time, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the beginning of August (I leave on the 8th).

    I did not want to rush you. I think we all are a it distracted today. Since it is near midnight here I go to bed now, you have the middle of the night too now, so have a nice night,
