    Question Cardinal Comeback?

    I remember in July last year that there was the announcement that Cardinal was being phased out (http://forums.tombihn.com/tom-bihn-n...-cardinal.html) and that there was little of it left. BUT....did my eyes deceive me? Or is Cardinal now available on the Aeronaut as a back order (available in March)?!?!

    Wow! I did see that on the Aeronaut page, and it definitely wasn't there when I checked all the options a few days ago for someone who missed this color. Does that mean that my (retired) Cardinal Breve for the iPad will get some company?

    We were trying to decide between using the very last of Cardinal to make some Aeronauts or hang on to it for some later time -- and the former won. So, there you go: last chance (for real this time) to order an Aeronaut in Cardinal.
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine, Founder's Briefcase, Synapse 19 (day hikes), Guide's Pack (longer day hikes), Yeoman Duffel (winter/emergency stuff for the car), Aeronaut 30 (travel), Night Flight Travel Duffel (camera bag), Moveable Feast + Shop Bags (food)

    I was afraid of that. There have been a few instances where a last bit of a fabric have been "discovered" and put into (a brief) production run again, but I didn't want to jinx this thread by adding a comment like that to my post.
