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.

Is the new Makers Bag:
The Maker’s Bag – added in new back pocket
An EXTERNAL pocket – finally?? I really like mine as an idea, but not having this means it mostly gets admired sitting in a closet.
thx,

Hi Mark! Yes! An external back pocket!

Road Buddies, Smart Alecs! It’s shaping up to be a great summer! Thanks. (Bring back cocoa, navy, or black cordura for the Synapses and Syniks and I may pass out).

Are these the final colour options? I was so hoping for a Maker’s Bag in Mars Red or Red Blend.
