I quite like their looks/feels so I'm not complaining, just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy when I compared them and was like "wait...are these different?"
    Those are the same fabric! Just a little goof on our side and the Boreal Pouches are all called Tough Stuff now. Sorry for the confusion

    would those of you who like the Recycled colors share why you like them so much?

    I agree with sturbridge that I like the hand in the 630d recycled fabric, as well as liking the color. It has a more cloth-like feel to the weave than the Ballistic Nylon, and I’ve like the material ever since it debuted in the Icons. It’s slightly less stiff than 525d Ballistic Nylon but closer to that than 210d Ballistic Nylon. When it was first offered in the trucks and monster trucks these were the last versions to sell out. I figured that might be because several people were buying these for “rugged” purposes where they might store car tools or chains and machinery in the trucks and drag them over concrete and rough surfaces so they didn’t want anything that hinted of a less tough nature in the feel of the fabric.

    if you want to try a sample of the 630d fabric (apart from asking the TB crew for a sample swatch) you can try ordering a Ghost Whale Organizer pouch in 630d. They mostly sold out in 630d early, but there’s a Super Mini GWOP still available in 630 d Nebulous Grey

    Then, again, some people just like the colors and the different weave and slightly different sheen (it looks like a tighter weave)

Or is it mostly due to environmental impact?
    The Seapine is a beautiful rich dark green color. The Logic Blue is not bad, but the Seapine reminds me of the bottle green color used on classic Karmen Gias.

    I'm planning to buy a Pop Tote the next time they drop and would love to see Seapine as a color option. (@Darcy - hint, hint ☺️)

    Thanks for the tag, G42!

    We have been out of Wilderness 525 but it is *just* back on the shelf. We'll start working it back into production now but it missed a batch of Synapse 25s that were recently started. It's possible we'll get another batch of S25 going and done by the end of the year but that could be tight. It's likely when the Wilderness S25s come back they'll be lined with either Coyote or Northwest Sky 200d Halcyon.

    I hope that helps with planning!

    Oooh, yes. I was hoping to grab another one today with my double organizer pouches and didn't realize they were out of stock.

    Darcy So, is the Maker's Bag in Alphaviolet not part of today's restock?

    Based on this answer from Darcy in another thread, it seems they just have a temporary shortage:
