    For people who want to view the Instagram video of the Tidal and Acuity Everyday Cubelet without having to have a login to Facebook or Instagram, this link seems to work. You have to activate the play button on the image to see the video.

    HTH,

    ETA: That’s probably the best color comparison that I’ve seen of Tidal and Acuity Halcyon, since not only are they displayed side by side, but the video rotates through different viewing angles so that you can see how the colors compare in different lighting angles

      Ordered a Small Snake Charmer (didn't originally get into these, but now find them super useful) in Tidal, a Large in Solaris (never tried a large, still on the fence about it), more V6 masks, and a Truck in 630 Nebulous
      Since I'm fortunate to be relatively close for shipping, I opted to have these shipped now instead of waiting for my pre-order to ship.
      I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

        I was good today, just a mini Ghost Whale in Mars Red. Added that to the two other orders which contain pre-ordered items though

          Added a bunch of items to my pre-order: Solaris Small Snake Charmer, Coyote Size 4 Travel Stuff Sack, and then a dive into Ghost Whales with a Black Mesh Super Mini, Black 210 Mini, and Burnt Orange Small.
          Solaris ALL THE THINGS!

            This is my first order since 2018, which is wild b/c it doesn't feel like that long. I've been wanting a Black Halcyon wallet #4 for a while, but it sold out as I was checking out.

            I got:
            Nik's Minimalist Wallet #4, Black 210d
            Ghost Whale, Super Mini, Black 210d
            Colored Zipper Ghost Whale, Mini, Black 210/NWS zip
            Handle Loop w/Snap Hook (I've been using my Halcyon Side Kick as a planner pouch and quickly found out that I need a handle loop b/c I'm always moving it here and there all day long)
            V2 Reusable Mask, Black Twill

            What is most interesting to me is that I was OBSESSED for years with Burnt Orange, but all my bags of late have been Black or Black Halcyon, which clearly pairs well with Burnt Orange. I even have regrets about not picking up a small Yeoman in black (but I don't need two and I love my Burnt Orange one to death). I haven't even thought about ordering anything in Burnt Orange, even all my wishlist items are black ballistic or halcyon.
            Long live Burnt Orange! Zest! 152!

            EDC: Side Kick, Everday Cubelet, DL PCSB (planner pouch); Travel: Smart Alec + Side Kick, Small Yeoman Duffel

              I was able to get 4 Snake Charmers (Large Tidal & UV and Small Acuity & Taiga), Nik’s Wallet #5 (Black Ballistic), and 3 GWOPs (2 Small Coyote Mesh, 1 Mini Black Ballistic, 1 Super Mini Black Mesh, to be added to my pre-order.

                Nice haul!
                How do you plan to use your snake charmers? I picked up a small but don't intend to use it as a tech pouch because I already invested in a rather pricey one. I'm brainstorming ideas to find some non-tech ways to use the SC.

                  I have a combined pre-order (incl. HLT2 in Tidal, cubelet in Solaris, PCSB in Taiga) with a friend but we placed another order today because I'm so impatient! Up in Canada but UPS expedited is super quick so I'm hoping to have the goodies first week of March (depending when TB ships it).
                  I ordered:
                  - Synik 22 (Black Halcyon/Taiga)
                  - Small Snake Charmer (Tidal)
                  - Travel Stuff Sack size 4 (UV)
                  - Ghost Whale Small (Seapine)
                  - Ghost Whale Super Mini (Coyote)
                  - assorted parts

                  I haven't placed an order since 2019 and I'm SO EXCITED. I've never owned a synapse or synik - but my DLBP is just lacking organization for my current needs; really looking forward to having a more functional EDC

                    Spent more than I had originally planned (caved and purchased a Synapse 25 for like the 4th time).


                    And this doesn’t include my preorder of the Black Halcyon Side Effect, Monster Truck and DLPCSB Cerylon...gonna have to sell some bags to offset this lol.

                      I scored an aubergine truck, A5 viridian ghost whale, small nebulous recycled ghost whale, mini seapine ghost whale (I already have a Alphaviolet mini ghost whale at hone plus Alphaviolet and seapine pickup trucks in my preorder). I think they will all look lovely together!

                        You're one of the few who scored one of the aubergine trucks! Congrats. UV and seapine should look wonderful together!

                          dmoneysong,
                          At it’s simplest, many people use the Small Snake Charmer in cases where they might want the functionality of up to two 3D Organizers Cubes stacked together, but with the ability to pack this accessory down when that much combined depth is not needed.

                          But there are a lot of other uses that we’ve seen: terayon’s Small Snake Charmer as a knitting project bag

                          The larger snake charmer has been featured asSnake Charmer: the perfect bag for this nurse! because it can fit a stethoscope


                          And there have been many references to “snack chamber” as an alternative title. Earliest alternate popular use (of the larger snake charmer) was Janine's Diaper Charmer!!!!! thread and later follow-up discussions elsewhere.

                            Nice haul. The fourth time will be the charm, I'm sure.

                            I didn’t buy much today, just large and small Snake Charmers in Solaris and a super mini Mars GW. But I did substantial credit card damage when I placed five separate preorders earlier in the month. I keep thinking I should cull my TB herd, but I would hate to have seller’s remorse, and so the collection grows.

                              dmoneysong I plan to put the large UV into my Swift to use as a small projects kit, but haven’t figured out exactly how use the others. Thank you for the other excellent ideas moriond!

                                My goodness; I've never seen it used as a nurse bag before... I thought my order was complete but I may need to tack on a large snake charmer now!
