PM me and I will look into it for you. A lot of orders shipped out today.
The leather is darker, a true brown this time around. They were tan last time.
In addition to Blue, there is Charcoal and Red
The red is like a Natucket red
It's a less blue than pictured, it's hard to photograph right without a real setup because there's so much texture in the fabric.
The sleeve is not removable, but I will send this along to our product guys as a suggestion.
Thanks so much for the presale. Got a snap backpack. A Ryan tank and tee for the female as well as another crew neck. Also pre-ordered a couple darker colored v necks for myself. This should hold me off til the fall colors are released. Am actually rocking the orange watercolor today, three delicate cycle washes and hung dry later still fits and looks great.
The banner has the old packs - I threw this collection together for SF, we haven't done actual photography for it yet
New backpacks look great. I like the darker leather trim, and a padded laptop sleeve makes a lot of sense for me. I'd use the water bottle pocket as well.
Unfortunately, I don't really need one because the original backpack is working so well. It looks great, get a lot of compliments, and it's suited fine for what I do. Even without padding, the sleeve works fine. Maybe someone on here would be interested in buying my old one - grey snap version - for $50 (I'd eat the shipping cost) since it lacks the water bottle pocket and would be $15 cheaper?
Otherwise, can't really justify the $65. I guess that's a testament to the construction of the "old" ones - I'm sure the new ones are at least as good, so y'all should definitely kop!
Nan, is there a tentative date for the official launch of the backpacks to the rest of people? Curious to know how much time I can wait before the general public picks them up in a span of hours, haha.
Date is sometime in the beginning of August for the full launch, TBD exactly. They won't sell out as fast as they did last time - except for the red. People who want that unique color will probably snap that thing right up.
Looks like you got a taker for you sale right below your post!
The backpacks are waxed canvas, so there is some natural water resistance. The interior lining is also water-proof for the most part, so the risk really comes in the gaps and zippers.
Just ordered a gray snap backpack! The gray was an obvious choice for me over blue and red (I prefer a neutral color backpack), but I would have opted for the olive color from the original run had it been an option. No complaints though, the gray looks good in the pic. Looking forward to receiving it and breaking it in this fall. Thanks for the pre-sale, Nan!
You bet! We are really excited about these.
Wooo my 2 watercolor pocket tee's ordered on 6-25 were finally shipped today according to the My Account page. Can't wait to finally get them. I hope they fit similar to the previous run of watercolors...my blue pocket tee has become my favorite tee shirt...fits great.
Nan, were there any production changes to the small watercolor pocket tee's in this run???
Not changes to fit. We added some stitching to the neck on the crews and pockets to make the collar lay flatter.
Oh Noes! You got PM.
IRL pictures - they are close to the real color
