    Is it just me, or has it been a bit quiet...

    I have not noticed much in the way of comments from the TB staff lately. What are they up to? Why so quiet? Is something a brewin'??

    I hope they have something new cooking but I'd guess that it's really just a combination of filling orders for the new product, starting to stockpile product for the upcoming holiday season, and summer vacations. But I really do hope I'm wrong and that they're working on a secret new project…in aubergine/UV

    I sure wouldn't mind a light blue or turquoise shade! It's easy to match with other colours, just as the current dyneema colours are, and would be a nice replacement for dear departed Nordic. Orange is nice, but IMHO goes well with fewer colours.

    You are right and wrong: we are pretty busy filling orders for the new bags, making bags for the holiday season, and going on vacation (September is a favorite month for that around here). That said, we're also working on new designs and testing a few of the prototypes on those vacations... some may debut as early as mid-November, but most you'll see sometime next year.

    Yes Plum/orange anything would be awesome! I'm not sure where this Barney character comes into the equation in reference to my Tigers... -_-

    Ever since I saw the last part posted by Luvdabags, I sing it country style.

    I knew there would be news, I was off the forum all day.
