    ☺️

    ETA: the PCSB is indeed available

    Everyday Cubelet 200d Island Halcyon/Violet Aether

    Hi eaglemom I’m not seeing the image you refer to, but I think that the combination of Island 200d Halcyon with a Violet Aether Interior, which was a combination that was made in mid-2018.Violet Aether was retired as a color option near the end of 2019, so it’s not currently available, but it was the second color used for the Everyday Cubelet interior pocket — the first option being Carbon Aether, which is also long since retired.You can find a list of the color combos that were made over time List - Everyday / Travel Cubelet
    Edited after I grabbed the image
    Island 200d Halcyon is still in active use, but is not being offered in the latest round (although other blue shades like Acuity and Tidal Halcyon are listed). The interior color would be Northwest Sky Aether.

    Hope this helps

    Hopes=dashed

    Nice photo! It's like peeking into the (Grab Bag) future then



    Also way too tempting and disconcerting as I already have more GBs than one person needs...

    On the latest 'Rare Bag Giveaway' page.... I see some orange fabric back there... Darcy is that more leftovers/samples for Grab Bags or maybe maybe new orange?

    Thanks, typo! and probably wishful thinking since I too would love a DLBC in Night Walk...and a Paragon in NW

    Thanks for the info, G42 and dirkhaun. I knew it was being used in the Grab Bag, and it looks like it's also appeared in a number of tote bags. The biggest surprise is that they're doing a Boreal Ruff Stuff Zeitgeist. While not a pack I would buy, it's nice to see photos of it in use on a backpack - it's actually quite handsome, with what appears to be a very canvas-y look and texture. Kinda like a midpoint between olive cordura and a more forest-type color. I'll be on the lookout for people's thoughts on using it day-to-day as a pack fabric.

    To build in what dirkhaun said, it only debuted in August, which isn't very long ago in the TB production universe.
    Here's the blog post announcing it in the Grab Bag
    https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/8...8181f9dc&_ss=r

    Note that TB wanted to hear what folks thought about it before using it in more items... They've since expanded into Shop Bags, Trucks, and it's in production for the Zeitgeist.

    There's quite a few items that have been made out of Boreal Ruff Stuff so far: https://www.tombihn.com/search?q=boreal

    Since it's still a relatively new material, I guess TB are still experimenting with it. There may also be supply issues (just guessing), as with many other materials, so they may be restricting things to certain types of bags and pouches.

    Out of curiosity, what ever happened to Boreal Ruff Stuff? I liked its particular shade of green, but only a couple smaller items have been made out of it thus far (that I'm aware of, anyway). It sounded like it had a similar feel to cordura, but is it a fabric that has the shortcomings of cordura (collects pet hair, abrades clothes) without the great aspects of cordura (really tough, nice matte canvas look)? Was its "ruff-ness" too ruff--er, rough? Will we ever see full-size packs made from it?

    tankcommander1554 Yes! We are working to get the photos updated on the site before they're restocked but all of the upcoming Cadets have the shoulder strap attachment moved back to the side of the bag.
