    It was a merry Christmas

    Santa Claus, in his infinite wisdom, saw fit to bring a few TB goodies to me for Christmas.

    Two Dyneema pouches - mini in Iberian and small in wasabi
    A Q-Kit in navy
    A size 2 travel stuff sack in wasabi
    5 yards of wasabi cord

    The small organizer pouch immediately went in my CP to hold all of the little "just in case" items. I'm thinking the Q-Kit will be a good carry pouch for my small Leatherman and a few other tools. I'm not sure of a job for the mini organizer pouch yet so I'll have to peruse the forums for some inspiration on that front.

    I had the stuff sack in mind for holding my winter pullover. It compresses quite a bit but as an XL size item I wasn't quite sure it would make it. Turns out that size 2 was just right giving a snug fit with no leftover wasted room.

    The wasabi cord is in place on the side pockets of my CP and I think it looks great with the nordic Dyneema.

    Thanks TB and Santa for a Dyneema-filled holiday.

    (TB Crew - feel free to use any of these pics if you so desire.)

    I don't even like Wasabi, but it looks amazing with Nordic.

    I have two Q Kits and one on the way. One holds earbuds and a glasses cleaning cloth, one holds a Swiss Champ Swiss army knife, and the one on the way will be for corralling change.
    Great pics! I love your Nordic Copilot!

    I ordered a Q-Kit simply to test it out and see if I could find a good use for it. It arrived today (along with my Forest Pilot), and as soon as I got it in my hands, I realized it would be perfect for storing the individually-wrapped Lifesaver mints that I carry on each trip (and often hand out to co-workers). It's so much nicer than keeping them in a small ziplock bag or loose in my Snake Charmer. (I plan to add another Q-Kit to my next Tom Bihn order.)
