    Light olive. My favorite 200d halcyon.

    pammy has a picture of a Side Effect in Taiga in her 4-08-2021 picture of her received order. I know it’s just one of a cast of many (you have to know the folks who have been agitating for 200d Halcyon Side Effects since they first appeared — ahem! — not that I would have anything to say about that) it’s a good color representation, though, and shows up the nice, neutral tones of 200d Taiga Halcyon. She’s also correct in her posted comment that Tidal (just to the right) looks more washed out than it appears in real life.

    By the way, there are pictures up of the HLTs in 200d Taiga that look darker. I think the more neutral coloring in the above photo is a more realistic view of 200d Taiga.

    Night Walk looks more understated than Taiga, because the dark grid threads blend in more easily with the blue coloring. If you haven’t tried it before this is a nice and novel Halcyon option

    The Night Walk Cafe Bag options sold out relatively early.

    In other words, I really want a Tri-Star Packing Cube Backpack in halcyon but I'd like something more colorful than Northwest Sky.



    We're still conserving 200d Halcyon just in case there's further delays, so the chances are slim you'll see more PCBP colors in the next 4-6 months.
    Thank you Darcy!

    Now I'll be reviewing every newsletter looking for announcements of both colorful PCBPs and the new Smart Alec.

    Darcy Whenever the Zeitgeist next becomes available for purchase, any chance we'll get the option for the stealth logo on certain color ways? (Black would be the obvious choice, but I'd really love to see it on Night Walk.)

    Alphaviolet will be offered in the next run of Maker's Bags... we're down to just a few rolls of Alphaviolet, so this will probably be the last time it's ever offered in the Maker's!

    No release date quite yet!

    Any chance for the MB with the back pocket coming in Cordura? Preferrably Olive or Cocoa?

    BTW, <3 THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing back Olive!!!! <3 I love Olive, it's my all time fav. And I'm excited to actually have a real job while it's available, LOL
    Yay! Glad you're happy re: Olive. I'll add the request for Cocoa to our Color Request Tracking thread. No plans for Cordura Maker's Bags, though.

    They look so good! Pics should be up tomorrow.

    Darcy I see that there are quite a few bags in production in Original Halcyon. Are you still working through the last of the OG Halcyon fabric before its being retired? Or has it been un-retired? BTW, I just received my OG Halcyon/Island LGD, and it looks great.
    We're still working through the last of the OG! It's still retired. And I hear you on the OG Halcyon/Island LGD... I took one of those home myself.

    Hey Darcy , what are the color options for the pocket pouch going to be this time around? I think I remember you saying that there'd be some new-ish options for this current run.
    As others noted, photos are up on the Pocket Pouch page!

    Ooh, boreal GWOP is going to go FAST and I'm going to need at least one. Also I think this might be the first time we get to actually choose our color combos for the pocket pouch? Very big fan of that, would love more of that.
