    grrrr
    I was just told that apolis act. doesnt expect to get the bag until beginning of september which means pre-orders probably wont receive them until around mid-september....

    anyone care to confirm?


    Eghh... I received my bag from apolis Monday. They are shipping out of Los Angeles and I pre-ordered through the Apolis website.

    thats good to hear but a little disappointing. i figured retailers would have received them first so that they could fulfill their own preorders. kind of lame that if you ordered direct it would get to you faster.

    all the smae, its nice to know that we are getting them now as opposed to later

    I actually just received tracking notice from Context, so these things are definitely out there and on their way!

    Is there anyway to still get this bag? Or are they sold out everywhere through preorders?

    Honestly after the announcement of the bag, and the pre-orders at the few sites, information of availability has been few and far between (though I should be getting mine tomorrow). It looks like the Apolis website is still taking orders, so can't hurt to give it a shot: http://www.apolisactivism.com/?event=startPreorder

    Yeah there is. We are going to let 4 of our bags go on a pre order basis. It's first come first served and you need to contact Dave on the phone or by email (addie is in my sig). The price is $396.00 with free shipping CONUS and 20 bucks anywhere else. We are shipping these insured for obvious reasons.

    We are expecting them on the 25th of this month.

    Possibly but don't bet on it. We ordered 8 bags, two are spoken for, 4 are now available for pre order and the other two I'm going to put on the site around Thanksgiving. It's marketing leverage and given how lousy the year has been we want to drive as much traffic as possible for the Christmas season.

    One awesome bag. Definitely a lot darker (almost black) than some of the factory tour shots you may have seen.

    Sorry, I have very poor photography skills (it doesn't help that the subject of the photo itself is so dark either), but here's a quick preview:

    The plate has the issue number: X/200.

    Thanks for the pics. That's a nice little touch with the pencils.

    It IS black. Or were you joking?

    On a second (more thorough) look, you're totally right. I think some combination of all that talk about black vs blue earlier in this thread and the odd lighting in the room hours ago made me think there was some hint of blue in there. [​IMG]
