    Love your bags. I have an EGO, it's been around the world with me and still looks like it's brand new.

    Thank you, V. Not sure how I missed that. Actually, originally I had asked for either one (Solar or Wasabi. I just want to be able to see what's in the bottom of a pocket with my old eyes. Too many times, I have needed something and thought I must have forgottten it, only to rediscover it upon getting home and downloading my pack. Only problem is they're out of wasabi too. I'm hopimg to get a synapse with a "well-lit" interior. Guess I'll keep waiting. Thank you, agAin!

    Here's something that you (and other members) might want to know about: our UPS Expedited International shipping rates are flat rate, as in, no matter how many bags you order (ok, if you order 15+ bags, we might have to talk) the shipping price is the same. If you can find friends, family, colleagues or fellow forum members to combine an order and split the shipping charges, it's definitely less expensive.

    Tom Bihn, welcome to the forum! I have learned a lot just browsing through your website. I didn't realize how many travel items you guys made besides bags!

    I would venture to guess that the Wasabi doesn't show dirt and stains as easily as a yellow would.

    I've been eyeing some of Tom's bags for a bit now. A few look more than adequate for a trip I have coming up.

    We hesitated on this one. Keep in mind, everyone, that we don't take custom color requests, but because it's the right time in our production schedule and we thought amdmaxx suggested a great color combination, we've made it happen: the Aeronaut in Steel/Wasabi is available for pre-order.

    Just wondering, have you guys ever considered making a bag with those of us who regularly carry guns in mind? I love the look of your products, especially as they don't scream tactical. I spend part of my time in a formal environment, and would appreciate a bag that is CCW capable, while still looking classy. Pretty much all the briefcase/messenger bags that are designed with a "gun" pocket are covered in MOLLE and would look ridiculous carried with a suit. Just wondering...

    Good question. The thing is: we have more ideas than we have the time (and production capacity) to make real. Tom's design list (the list of what he wants to design or release) is four pages long. Before we even consider branching into any new areas, there's a bunch of new bags that fit into existing lines (travel bags, laptop bags, organizational inserts, etc.) that we want to debut first. Take backpacks: there's at least five new backpacks on the horizon.

    If you have suggestions of considerations we can take into account for those who carry, let us know, but it's unlikely we'll be making anything specifically for that purpose.

    One of the things I've been wondering if there are any plans to do a refresh of current bag designs? Previous designs had super useful lined cell phone pockets, however phones have since then gotten larger... add on a protective case of sorts and all of a sudden they no longer fit!

    Lining the bag with velcro would be very helpful.
    There are pouches and holsters that are made to attach to a loop field,the customer could organize the bag in a way that meets their needs, and this would also allow easy changes to the layout as needed.

    LOL! This place is dangerous! Now the waiting game begins, I ordered with the UPS ground shipping so it will probably take a month to get here - and the box will be beaten to death as well. Just hope the bag is ok!
