    I'm now envisioning a very small run of Polar/Solar Synapses. It could be called the Yellow Snow Limited Edition. Only 180 days until Christmas, haha.

    PS: you're welcome, Janine.

    A non color is either black or white or transparent or silver.

    I would LOVE a Polar/UV Synapse 25! It's not like dirt sticks to the dyneema so why not? Pre-order ready!

    this is very exciting!

    cannot imagine what the color that may not be a color could be. i wonder what the color of undyed nylon is ...?

    whatever it is, i hope it comes out very very soon.

    I second the Nordic/Solar Co-Pilot vote. That would be AWESOME!

    Polar/UV would be awesome. You could call the bag the Ozone Hole.

    Me first! Me first!!!

    I get the feeling if it were to happen it might be quite a limited run. I have no idea what standard production volumes are at TB, but I guess the usual rule would apply: if you see it and you want it, order it immediately because stocks are limited and once it's gone it might not be back for a long time - or ever!

    While I obviously approve of the color, the name scares me, so I would call it Out of the Whiteout into the Blue Sky, which is the only time one can see anything in the polar regions.

    I just have to "whine in"....If it's a "color upgrade", please let it be 400d Ultraviolet! :-)

    Although silver or shimmering white is intriguing....

    I may have missed this, but will the Synapse 25 ever be made in a color of Dyneema other than steel?
