    Darcy,

    I had to go back and look at that thread, and you are correct. I suggested a Crimson Dyneema as well as possibly a Black Dyneema (since we were just tossing ideas around). But I could see how the dyneema fiber could make the crimson appear more pinkish, and would probably dilute the black as well unless you were starting with a very dark black. I think with the Iberian Red, you've definitiely hit the mark!

    Now I'm envisioning a White dyneema. While that probably wouldn't be a very popular or practical color choice, I think an almost pearl-like appearance would be the result to it.

    Has anyone experimented with these different dyneema colors to create a dyneema Imago? That would make a very interesting gift (purse) for a woman.

    KarlJ,

    Didn't you suggest a Red Dyneema/nylon in the past? The problem with that has always been that the white lines of the Dyneema could make red look pink. We spent a lot of time finding the right shade of red that would not turn pink - and that's Iberian.

    Any chance the co-pilot will be made in black/iberian?
    Yes! Maybe by the end of this year, but more likely, in early 2011.

    A while back, Maverick produced a video about "packing a suit in an Aeronaut" for the Tom Bihn YouTube channel, in which he used an Eagle Creek garment sleeve. He made mention of a possible Tom Bihn garment sleeve due by mid-2010. I hope that sleeve project makes it into the Bihn schedule, as I would be most interested in seeing what Mr. Bihn does with the concept. And it would be very interesting to see what Mr. Bihn could do with a garment sleeve using this new iberian red dyneema fabric, to be sure!

    Dyneema/nylon, as it's an ultra-light fabric, doesn't have the same stiffness/body as our 1050d Ballistic Nylon or 1000d or even 500d Cordura. That's why there's certain styles of bags - the Smart Alec, for example - that won't be made with a Dyneema exterior. Others...perhaps! Our production schedule is pretty full through 2010. Anything new (besides the FJN) will be 2011.

    I also think iberian red dyneema would go great as a Passport Pouch, Clear Organizer Pouches (along with other dyneema colors), Freudian Slips, and Medium Cafe Bags. And could you imagine a dyneema Aeronaut with iberian red exterior and a solar interior?

    And I think solar and iberian red would make a great mixture for exterior colors of a special edition Smart Alec.

    I agree with all of those, especially the Dyneema Aeronaut. Is that even a possibility?

    And yet I've only ever seen THREE people on the Metro with Tom Bihn bags (other than friends of mine, of course!). Where are y'all hiding?

    I'm not a backpack guy, that said, the Iberian Aeronaut Backpack Packing Cube is on my acquisition list and should an Iberian Synapse become available, I think I would have to purchase such on general principles. I rue that I came to appreciate the Steel Dyneema Synapse too late to purchase it but an Iberian version would more that assuage my loss.

    The Dyneema material is something I have come to enjoy, and am very satisfied by. I have a shoulder bag, shop bag and a yarn sack in Dyneema and it is quite a remarkable material. Remarkable enough to draw me to experimenting with a backpack.

    Also, I would like to add that I too find the Iberian Dyneema a remarkable color. Congrats on such a well chosen color.

    i'm dreaming of an iberian red / iberian red synapse with a fire red ultrasuede iphone pocket.

    actually, iberian red / solar would be pretty darned hot also!
