    Is it just my imagination or does the Pilot now have some non-backordered selections?

    I swear I decided on a Pilot a couple of weeks ago, but everything at the time was backordered to the end of November. I went to longingly look at the page again last night, and there are a bunch of selections available now. Was that just my imagination? Tom Bihn, what are you doing to my wallet? First new Side Effect selections (coyote/steel on order), now this?????

    I really wanted to hold out for a coyote/steel Pilot, but the reality is all the rest of my luggage, and all of my Tom Bihn bags are black or black dyneema, so the Black/Iberian Pilot really would be a better choice. And could be used in a pinch for a work bag. Even though my coyote Side Effect will be lonely without a companion.

    So far: LS in black dyneema/iberian, SE in black/iberian, SSB in black dyneema, Vintage Buzz and numerous pouches, 3D cubes, straps. On the way: coyote/steel Side Effect. Still waiting for the perfect weekender bag.

    how about a coyote co-pilot to go with the pilot and the SE and be the bridge between them?

    @sturbridge The first of the Pilots to show up off backlist (Steel/UV) appeared at the same time as you posted your thread on the new Side Effect color combinations. Here's one of my posts (#6) in that thread:

    On another topic, even though there are no new Pilot colors that I saw (an Aubergine option would be nice, hint, hint!), the Steel/UV Pilot is showing up as available now (no longer on Back Order).
    Black/Iberian and Navy/UV have since shown up on the available options, but no new colors (like Coyote or Aubergine) have made an appearance in this batch, as color combinations for the Pilot have rolled off the back order list. The last "new" color for the outside of the Pilot was Forest/Steel during the July 8, 2014 production run:

    Black/Iberian should be pretty nice. I've seen that combination in the earlier Cadet releases.

    So I'm NOT crazy (this time, and that's always relative anyways being a Bihnion ).

    The Black/Iberian Pilot looks amazing if I do say so myself. Now that I finally have a laptop that fits in there, I'm really excited to use it regularly as a work bag. I'm stoked about all the compartments.

    My Pilot in Black / Iberian just shipped yesterday together with a French Blue DLBP to go in my growing Black/Iberian and Nordic PCBP/PCSB collection! I think TB should invest in drones that deliver quicker! But, I cannot complain - TB is over a month ahead of their estimated late November availability - WOW, thanks TB crew!

    @Badger - your Black/Iberian Pilot is a thing of beauty. Thanks for showing it to me when we had a chance to meet! That is what inspired me to get one. It hopefully will fit my big laptop (based on @isablur and @weirdguy's videos and pictures - thanks guys!). If not, I am just going to have to replace my 3 year old laptop with a new smaller one - priorities, you know ...

    Cheers!
