    We just chatted about this today! The next order of Paragons will include Night Walk and 1000d Cordura options; those bags will be done around late October, I'd estimate. Before then, there will be a Paragon restock, but it won't include those colors.
    Darcy I noticed in the latest blog post that the Paragon wasnโ€™t listed as coming in Nightwalk. Is that an oversight or a change of plans? If itโ€™s a change I might just have to order one in Taiga. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I don't know if it's Boreal but apparently there's a new color swatch available if you ask for a sample of all the new fabrics.

    Does that mean we'll have those two items in 210 or 525 ballistic colours coming up? ๐Ÿ˜

    Hopefully they're the surprise in the 8/30 restock.

    Any chance the LGD will be offered in Black Halcyon/Northwest Sky or Black Halcyon/Taiga 200? Or the Synapse 19 in cordura?

    I'm really hoping the Makers Bag will again be presented in the lovely black and wasabi suit of clothing!

    ittoujuu you can request free fabric swatches from the fine folks in customer service to get a better idea of the colour and hand

    Strongly curious to see what the Synapse in Seapine Green and the Synik in Olive Cordura look like (and this "cocoa" cordura, which I don't think I've ever seen before)! They could end up as potential alternatives to waiting out a Wilderness/Cloud S25, if I like the look enough. Somehow, I always figured the recycled 630 would be close to the 525 Ballistic fabric in weight and feel, but from MikeV's comment, it seems like it's actually quite a bit different. I went to find it in the Materials Glossary, and lo and behold, there was a nicely written-up entry for it! While having the word "ballistic" to describe a fabric can only make it cooler, it sounds like the recycled 630 is no slouch, and would make a pack comparable in sturdiness to the 525. And Cordura is a nice pick for a pack like the Synapse or Synik, where there design already has a mesh panel/smoother fabric for the part that comes in contact with your back.

    And maybe the MB in Logic Blue?

    Good question, Surrealle! Neither of those are in the works right now but it's possible we'd do the Maker's Bag in that fabric. I'd say the Luminary is less likely- when we launched that bag a few years ago we determined 400d Halcyon to not be quite right and the structure/hand of 630 is closer to 400d than 525d.



    Ack! I had some edits unsaved but fixed it now. We do have a few Black Synik 30s in the works. In the next upcoming batch: Black 525 Ballistic/NW Sky 200 Halcyon, Black 525 Ballistic/Island 200 Halcyon, Black 400 Halcyon/Solaris 200 Halcyon. And in a batch due a few weeks later: Black 525 Ballistic/Sitka 400 Halcyon and Black 400 Halcyon/Taiga 200 Halcyon.
    Good to know, thank you!
