Updates

As usual, we're keeping ourselves quite busy at the factory. During the last two weeks, we had to shuffle some crew members around to make space for the showroom! We had moved some folks into that space for social distancing reasons when COVID started. After some re-organizing, cleaning, and setting up, we're really excited to open the showroom again on May 16! Some limitations will still be in place, like masking, but we're excited nonetheless. Mark your calendars :)

We also have some fun stuff in process on the floor right now. The Paramour and Smart Alec pre-orders were a success for us, and we're putting those into production now! We're also making a batch of Tri-Stars (yes you read that correctly!), sewing up a new sling/ fanny pack, and working on a new design or two in parallel. As for some not so fun news...two of our three bartacking machines broke and we're still waiting for the new ones to arrive. This may stall some of the bags we have in production, but hopefully the issue will resolve itself very soon.

Any word on the Aeronaut 30? We’ve been hoping to buy a second one for months :(

Thanks for asking! We’ve run into some fun production challenges with the Aeronaut, but we’re working through them! Hope to have a better update soon!

Thanks for sharing your feedback, the WF is a great bag and would be great with the Edgeless straps!

I can’t wait to see what the new sling/ fanny pack ends up looking like! I’m very excited for it.
