    Thanks to the two of you who commented, now I have a new order to make, when available.

    I have the cubelet in various fabrics, but I guess my sturdier feeling ones are in a heavier ballistic than the 210d? They must be, and that's what made me think I needed halcyon. If 200d halcyon and 210d ballistic have similar pliability and weight, I should be good to go.

    Edited to add: I checked my old orders. They were 525d ballistic. Thanks, again!

    I would love a Medium Cafe Bag in Deep Blue/Dawn. I was very tempted by the SK in this color combination, but I didn't need the bag so I stayed strong. But I want to add a MCB to my collection! Now that Dawn is no longer a limited color I would love to see it paired with a few different outer fabrics.

    Welcome to the Forums @Lami!

    As @b1gsky mentioned, the weight of the two fabrics is pretty similar in a finished product. The 200d halcyon PCSB (no strap) is 3.4oz. The redesign adds an O-ring and moves the strap locations... and also offers it in the 210d ballistic for the first time, so there's no posted weight on that yet, but it won't move the needle much.

    Right now there isn't a 200d black halcyon fabric available from TB - the black halcyon is 400d which TB doesn't normally use for this bag. If you want a nice neutral, the 210d ballistic Black and Cloud are worth checking out. Personally, I love Dawn as a neutral as well... and Coyote is looking pretty interesting for a warm neutral.

    You can always ping or email or call Customer Service to request a swatch of fabric if you'd like to see or feel it in real life.

    Hope this helps and let us know if you end up getting one - we love pics!

    I can’t imagine that you will notice a difference in weight IRL. The 210 ballistic is very lightweight.

    I'd like to see some kind of button clasp along the zipper of the PCBP that could bridge across the zipper on both sides of the backpack to prevent unzipping the bag all the way while in backpack mode. On a few occasions it has unzipped uncontrollably when trying to partially open it to retrieve something while walking. The more stuff that's in there, the more it wants to dump everything on the ground!

    It'd be really nice to have yarn Stuff Sacks in some new colors. Maybe the 210 colors, or in future new halcyon colors.

    My wish is two halcyon or 210 ballistic 3DOCs sewn together back to back to form essentially a mini snake charmer but with sides of halcyon/210 ballistic instead of mesh. I do like the snake charmer but find that sometimes things poke through the holes or get caught in the mesh.

    Yes, I would love a wallet to use for bills and coins that could go alongside the one I use for cards. My current system is to keep one or more twenties in my NMW with my cards and any smaller bills or coins loose in the same pocket of my SE/SK that the wallet goes in, but I’m not happy with this system. (I rarely use cash/coins, but recently I’ve needed to - cash tips, cash only restaurants, penny squishing machines...)
