    Does the Nordic Dyneema color still exist?

    Still new here & figuring things out . . . I really like the photo of the SE in Nordic Dyneema . . . is the Nordic gone? Should I wait, or go ahead with another color? From what I've researched on these forums, the material on the SE makes a difference more so than some of the other bags.

    Unfortunately, it was retired. We all miss it.

    Sometimes you can get lucky on e-bay (mysterious smile), but it does command a premium.

    I'm in love with Nordic. A Nordic Smart Alec is high on my grail bag list.
    Okay, now I REALLY want a Dyneema CoPilot!
    I NEED to find a Medium Cafe bag in Dyneema!
    Black Dyneema /Solar is my #1 choice!
    Next would be Steel /steel, or Nordic/solar.
    Looking for Smart Alec in Nordic, or steel /steel Dyneema.
    Also looking for mini OP's in CORK and Solar.

    I drool over the Nordic SA shown on the website.

    For those of you who haven't seen @Ilkyway's The Adventure to send a parcel (or two) to USA - Tom Bihn thread from last June, I highly recommend reading it both for the pictures and for an account of how dreams of a Nordic Smart Alec came true. A very smile-inducing thread with super cute pictures of the Nordic Smart Alec worn by a younger Tom Bihn customer, and delicious looking pictures of cookies enjoyed by the Tom Bihn staff.

    Nordic Smart Alec is really an awesome combo. Plus, with my super-favourite Solar lining. Equal, Super duper awesome!
    Unfortunately, I will give it a pass as I will most probably find the Dyneema-exterior Smart Alec too soft and wouldn't able to hold itself compare to Ballistic.
    Nevertheless, it is really a great combo.

    I hope to see Nordic return to other bags such as Daylight Backpack, Shop Bag, Packing Cube Backpack, Co-Pilot. These bags plus other un-named really in need of brighter color especially brighter dyneema, to sprite up Year 2015.
    Solar/Yellow: A45 Navy, CP Black, SA Black, SCB, TT, YSS/Tall, OP/S, PP Navy
    Steel/Grey: UMP Steel 400d, PU Coyote, DLBC, PCSB, FBPW, MCB, OP/L
    Olive/Green: A30NWS, SCB, SC, DOP/M, COP/M
