Will it ever come with a UV lining? Sigh. Do I buy it now or hope it comes with UV someday.

I thought UV is one of the inner linings with the Black Halycon S25?

Yes, that's what was shipped to me this AM.

I ordered a Black Halycon / Iberian and a Nordic Halycon / Iberian. I have to see them in person before I choose which one to keep! My order was placed around 9am EST.

Ordered my Nordic Halcyon/NW Sky @ 10:12AM Eastern. But, shipping takes five days. Ugh.

Very nice having the email notification.

Just ordered an S25 in Nordic Halcyon/NWS!!! Just happened to check and saw they were available, usually I am too late. Now I have to wait for a week for delivery. My wallet is happy that the A30 is not yet available in this combo.

I find it interesting that neither Nordic combo has sold out despite the enthusiasm for the colour on this forum, while 2 black combos are already out of stock as of this morning Singapore time-- including black halcyon and the (lately) much-disparaged Iberian. I think that might be an indication of how small a proportion of TB's buyers forum members are. Given the feverish reaction here to the return of Nordic, I'd have expected that combo to sell out the way Black halcyon/NWS did? (The announcements regarding the Nordic bags were made on the FB page, too.)

I wonder how many forum members are waiting to see what the new 200d color will be. I know it will be months before we see anything with it but some people can be patient like that. Not me but some people. :)

I'm not as surprised by this.

From my keyboard it seems that the reaction to Black Halcyon has been overwhelmingly positive - not sure I've seen a single negative or even "meh" comment. I think that the grey thread is going to let a lot of people go with Black Halcyon where may have paused because of the "loud" white grid in original Black Dyneema.

Contrast that to the return of Nordic. I was so excited when it was announced, but when Ilkyway posted pictures comparing the old/new Nordic it caused me to pause *the base color did not look the same, perhaps because the grey vs white grid appears to play a huge role in color perception. I can't be the only Nordic lover who did this. I ended up ordering the Nordic/NWS combo to see it in person to make a decision.

That said, if Island ends up being the new color, I'd order Black Halcyon/Island today, even knowing I'd have to wait for 6 months.

I am thinking hard about a Nordic/NWS S25, but my true dream is Black Halcyon/Island. It looks like Island is a real possibility (don't want to jinx anything!) so I kinda want to wait. Also, I have a navy S19 and part of me wants a different colour. OTOH, that Nordic is really nice, and it's available NOW...

Yes, probably true that Forum members are a relatively small percentage of TB customers. With that said, we probably account for a disproportionate share of orders! :D I should think the Crew, knowing the exact numbers for all these groups, has taken into account the potential demand for each colorway.

It's probably nice too for them to have similar colorways that don't sell out immediately, since otherwise, casual buyers who come to the site without knowing anything about limited editions or new releases might find it discouraging to find all the shelves empty, as it were. :)

I quite like Nordic, though not enough to bid crazy amounts on the secondary market. I also liked the white grid on blue quite a lot. Black tends to go better with my wardrobe, though, so my EDC bags are black.

Now - if a two-tone Halcyon Smart Alec showed up, it would be very tempting!! (I can't decide if I would prefer an all-black Halcyon SA or with the contrasting panel in the middle. Fortunately I do not yet have to choose! ;p)

I now have a Nordic/Iberian S25 on the way. I have a steel cordura S19 and a Nordic Smart Alec. I will have to compare it with my own eyes in person to tell which I prefer.

I got an email that my watchlisted Black Halcyon/Wasabi was available. I was in a data privacy session at a training conference but ordered right then from my phone. Then like 10 hours later I had a panic and realized I might have misread the email in my rush since I was also watching the regular Black/Wasabi. I ended up checking my order at midnight after a long day of traveling and discovered that I DID order the CORRECT thing.

This was my first major TB order. I ordered a couple accessories before committing so I have an end packing cube that I use for shoes, a snake charmer, a cache that I used with my current backpack, and a spiff kit. I've been impressed enough with those items to commit to the Synapse. I can't wait to get it.

Ordered the Nordic halcolyn / Iberian. It is already in the uk, but in Customs at the moment. Can't wait to see it! I think that since the S25 was put up on the site nearly a month ago the tb crew have been making loads of these and have a lot to get out the doors. Hope so as I think the colour looks fab and I hope it sticks around. Would love to see DLBP in Nordic Halcolyn too

I have a black halcyon/wasabi en route. I am a little nervous about the wasabi, and waffled on getting one of the others as a backup, but once I decided on NWS, it was gone. I have some small wasabi accessories and have mixed feelings about it as a color, although it's been growing on me lately. But I have bags with UV and Iberian liners, and I wanted something different. So if anyone wants to tell me how supergreat wasabi is as a lining, particularly with black halcyon, have at it. I think I'm going to be doubting myself until I see it in person.

Wasn't fast enough to grab the 25 in black halycon. Wondering when the next batch is ;-)
If anyone has the nordic.. I wonder about real-life pictures just in case it convinces me lol

Literally my exact thought process right now. The Nordic/NWS S25 is beautiful (and tempting!), but I've wanted a Black/Island S25 since the day the first round of limited edition colors were announced. If all goes well with the poll, then I'll likely wait until the end of the year to get a Black Halcyon/Island - after all, whatever bag I get next, I'll end up carrying for 11 or 12 years, so I might as well wait to get the one I really want.

I only have black (ballistic nylon) bags so far and so I was thinking of maybe something in Nordic Halcyon. I'm glad to see that Nordic Halcyon availability is holding up at the moment and hopefully until this weekend when I will have more time to ponder and browse.

However, I was looking at the Nordic Halcyon colour and I think I prefer the lighter French Blue (which obviously is not Nordic Halcyon). There's only a 50g weight difference between the two as well. I realise that cordura attracts fur/dust unlike (I think) Halcyon.

Decisions...

i think i'm going to go with a S19...not sure i need the larger 25 for my EDC...but man...the black halcyon looks cool but for some reason the original halcyon is looking more tempting too me. don't know why...any forum members have a side by side pic they can take?

@John... I have the S25 in French Blue and it is very nice. But, I immediately ordered the S25 in Nordic Halcyon. As soon as it arrives, I'll take a few side-by-side pics for you.

im wondering if the next batch of S25 black halycon is more like "couple of weeks" or "a month or two away" (might get nordic now if black takes too long)

alright still can't get myself to pull the trigger on either of the S19 halycon....i mean the burnt orange looks great as well. i want all pics of your S19 or S25's! doesn't matter what colors. time to research this thoroughly lol

EDIT: man now i'm looking at the smart alec as well...tough to decide between the synapse or alec grrrr!

My husband's Nordic/NW Sky S25 came this evening and it is beautiful! The design of the S25 is already very sleek and you add the grey grid, wow! Luckily, the kids prefer the packing black hole capabilities of the SA or they'd get their hands on this first!

The Black Halcyon is a keeper! The Nordic ended up looking purple in some light which I really didn't care for and the French Blue Cordura was going to collect too much dust, dirt, etc. I do have to say the French Blue was an amazing color with lots of depth without looking shiny and plastic.

05-11-2016, 07:51 PM
Black and Nordic Halcyon arrived today. I like them both but in the end may do white grid halcyon. Seems like it would pack fine for me. Still deciding because I di like the black hole - Smart Alec

Finally decided to pick up a Synapse 25 after not really loving my Rush 24. Having lots of trouble deciding on a color though! Ordered the Nordic/Iberian a few days ago but just ordered the black halcyon/nws today as well. I'll decide which one I prefer when they both arrive.

My black halcyon/wasabi S25 arrived a couple of days ago - I went ahead and got it because I finally accepted that a black/zest S25 was not meant to be... alas!

I will be taking it for its maiden voyage next week for a 5 day trip to Orlando!

My synapse collection is now complete. S25 in original and S19 in new halcyon.
