    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but it seemed as good as any.
    I'm travelling on business next week and find myself in the home of the global HQ of the global manufacturing force we know as skinth. I have a high level meeting with their CEO to pick up a major order and (trans- I'm in Winnipeg and I'm meeting Eric for a beer and picking up the skinth I ordered) I wondered if we could compile 5 questions for him about anything skinth.
    Please post below, I'll ask them while I am there and report back here.

    When will there be more leather?

    Can KAMM pet your awesome puppies?

    Those are my questions. Please, pass them on to Eric. I'm super jealous you get to have a beer with him ;)

    Quick pic for you. :) clearly I chose the green one for tomorrow's paint day. :)

    Huge as in a catch-all or something. Though a skinth backpack would be COOL. :)

    Thank you, now I want that first one :D. I've seen the green one and I guess I thought the other two where the same one.
    Btw, I got a grey L-shield.

    Yes-congrats! Welcome to the cool people club! :D

    I got a question-how's the mysterious h-shield comin along? :)

    Any new designs/major revisions we should look out for?

    And might be a silly question-but with the one piece penta pocket, would we ever be able to buy a shield with open bottom side pockets? not like I need one-just curious ;)

    I reeeeeally like the idea of having them all in one pocket but nicely separated into their own compartments. And the little handle on top for easy grabbing is genius. I'm brewing another purchase!

    This would be nice if it was brown leather. Anyone else know of a brown leather version if the p3 skinth?

    Can a Iphone 4s fit in a Skinth JB?

    If so:

    Is it possible to make the Skinth JB with a double Main compartment with mesh in one of them?

    Yikes, had been meaning to post an update. So Eric and I met up last week (the first time either of us had met a fellow EDCFer) in freezing Winnipeg, a few beers were had and I was given the tour of Skinth HQ. It was great to see how it all happens from the design to actually seeing my Skinth made right there and then.

    The permutations offered are incredible and each item really is custom made to your specific design. Eric's enthusiasm for the project is contagious. I did ask lots of questions, several of them obvious/stupid but they were mainly about where the idea came from, the process, the materials and the future of skinth and I think there's a lot more to come from Eric and his workshop. He's also doing some really cool things with modding other stuff, hence the thread in the BST looking for more "victims" to go under the knife in the name of research. He's got a little leatherman with modded scales that was extremely cool that came in a skinth that I shall be queuing for should they go on sale, if they go on sale....no pressure Eric.
    All in all it was great to meet someone who clearly had such an enthusiasm for making such top quality product and I look forward to seeing what's next to come out of the basement in Winnipeg, especially "Q Branch". Eric, appreciate the hospitality and good luck. James
