    Hi dirkhaun
    If you want to see more of the Spacer Mesh Ghost Whale Organizer Pouches with Colored Zippers, take a look at the Pack Hacker review The spacer mesh material is actually what's used on the back panel of the Synapse and the Synik -- the mesh is bonded to a light nylon backing and there is a slightly spongy, cushioned feel. I was secretly hoping they would come out with a similar version using the Coyote spacer mesh found at the back of the Guide's Edition Synapse and Syniks, but this was not to be.

    I think they made one replacement batch of the spacer mesh versions after the initial offering sold out, but it was very difficult to find these more than about a month after they debuted (except in the A5 size), apart from some returns that came back.

    I wasn't able to order any of these in the Small size, and the last one that I was able to get (apart from the A5 size) was in June 2021, as part of an order at the time when they were first discontinuing the Yeoman Duffels, the Pick-Up Trucks and the Clear Quarter Packing Cube. You can see the picture of the Super Mini sized Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch in Spacer Mesh with Northwest Sky Zipper in my 06-15-2021 post in the Clear Quarter Packing Cube thread. There's also a picture of two of the Ghost Whale Organizer pouches in scrap black (210d Ballistic) with Island colored zippers (A5 and Mini) next to an Island (210d Ballistic) Pick-Up Truck. (I was showing that the (retired) Clear Quarter Packing Cubes fit into the center of the Pick-Up Truck by using one of my (retired) CQPC's in Solar to demonstrate).

      moriond I'm getting forgetful... have we had double organizer pouches that are all fabric?

        No, the whole point of the double organizer pouch is that you had the top pocket clear so items placed there are visible, but the items in the (slightly larger) rear pouch are hidden behind a zipper. See the blog post on Taminca's Many Uses Of The Double Organizer Pouch for example.

        ETA:

        Or look at the Double Organizer Pouch thread from 03-26-2014 from which those were extracted.


        You can also look at the Blues and reds in organizer pouches where somebody asked about available DOP colors early on, and where I posted some pictures (meant to show a range of colors and materials that I had actually received at that time)

          Thanks

            Me too. I have an all fabric Navy Parapack Organizer Wallet and I very much prefer it over the clear front ones.

              Presumably you mean coyote spacer mesh with colored zipper. I do have a coyote mesh super mini ghost whale (with black zipper) that I bought back in 2019. Interestingly, it doesn't have the same spongy feel as the black spacer mesh ghost whales.

                  I thought the straps were being updated, but it looks like they’re still the same bound edge. I was so looking forward to trying an updated version

                    That Steel/Zest combo made my current bag indecision ALMOST go away.

                      We should wait for the full announcement. It looks like only the new exterior colour combo shots are up, don't know that they've updated any of the expanded photos yet

                        I was just going by the specs info; maybe that info hasn’t been updated yet…fingers crossed! I had an Aubergine/Wasabi A30 that I loved (the color combo and the packability), but I sold it after one trip…the straps bruised my clavicles. No matter how I tried to adjust the straps, I couldn’t make them work.

                        ETA: Straps are updated to edgeless! So excited to give the A30 another try!

                          Glad they found a way to photograph the colours much closer to how they look in real life. Hope they’ll upload the A45 colours soon. If the A45s come in the same combos as the A30s and I do decide to buy it, I may have a hard time choosing between Constellation/Northwest Sky, Ursa/Fjord and Deep Blue/Zest.

                              Looks like these re-designed Aeronauts don’t have the lining in the main compartment like the previous version. I like having a dark exterior and light lining color — it’s easier to find things. A bit disappointed in this change but the other updates are nice.

                                Now that the main compartment interior lining has changed, Ursa has been booted out as it was in contention mainly because of the Fjord lining. Still a tough choice though. Deep Blue is a serious consideration now instead of a distant third choice as my eyes can handle a dark blue interior better than a large swathe of orange. I love Constellation and it's a standout colour but it gets dirty pretty easily.
