I'm still waitlisted for the shearling Thunder, which is due to come out on November 1. We haven't really talked much about the mono shearling -- though I recall a good number of tPFers posted that it wasn't their cup of tea. I think this is going to be one of those bags that is much better IRL but still only appeals to certain people. Anyone else waiting for shearling? And if you're not, have you thought about how toasty the shearling will keep your iPod and cell phone on those really cold days? (Okay, that's not much of a justification but any little bit helps, right?) There's a really nice picture of the Thunder in the October issue of In Style and it's helping me get a little more enthusiastic about the bag. I was having second thoughts back in September. Okay, enough Restricter Rambling. Your thoughts?
