I was going to send an email to ask the awesome folks at Tom Bihn, but other forum members may be interested in the topic.

In previous years, the Brain Bag was made in 2 single colors - camou and black.

I do not remember if the Smart Alec was ever issued in single color other than black and the black dyneema.

My question to @Darcy and the awesome folks at TB: any chance that we will see the Brain Bag or the Smart Alec in single color other than black?

Thanks!

For the Brain Bag, I agree that those were the only 2 single colors (though the back and straps are still always black).
For the Smart Alec, I believe it used to come in the retired Steel and Nordic 400d Dyneema single colors (again, the back and straps are still black).

I agree, I think it might be nice to see Brain Bag in an all Navy or even an all Dyneema version.

Cheers!

@tpnl, why did you have to show the picture of the Nordic SA? Shedding a tear here...

I forgot about the Nordic. Yes - that was a nice one.

I have the Nordic Smart Alec. I like that it is all dyneema. I'd imagine the black dyneema version is the same. I think the ballistic Smart Alec's have cordura sides. At least they used to.
