I am looking at ordering the aeronaut and there is a colour listed as Steel/Solar
Does this mean the outside is steel and the inside is solar?
Just want to be clear...thanks

Yup, sure does. Mine's a steel/steel, and oh, how I wish I could have gotten it in solar! The inside is a solar dyneema ripstop fabric.

Here's a pic of the steel/solar combo in a Smart Alec, just to give you an idea:

Is the Dyneema sapphire/white (as shown in the Yarn Stuff Sack pics) no longer available?

That's right - it's no longer available.

Any chances of it becoming available again? It beats Steel and Solar for the dyneema colors by a wide margin!

Probably not Sapphire, but maybe another kind of blue - sometime in 2010.

A bright red or orange would be awesome as well for the dyneema.

We originally wanted to order a red Dyneema/nylon, but found that because of the white grid pattern, the red ended up looking pink. Strange but true. Orange might be a possibility someday.

Bluedenim, here (http://forums.tombihn.com/showthread.php?p=11365#post11365) is a picture of the Aeronaut (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/500/TB0906) in Steel/Solar. You can also order regular (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/ACC/TB091) and Clear Quarter (http://www.tombihn.com/blog/node/736) packing cubes in solar (http://www.tombihn.com/blog/node/731). (The packing cubes in the linked Aeronaut picture are steel.)

Interesting, Darcy... I had envisioned a red/crimson-like dyneema Shop Bag, but a Indigo-ish dyneema Shop Bag looks good in my mind also.

Indigo/White Dyneema would be great. What's the time frame from ordering it to when the bags would be available to purchase? I'd imagine several months, but could it be just a few months?

It depends - definitely several months. I don't see us ordering a blue Dyneema anytime soon, though.
