    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.

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

    Thanks

    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)

    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).

    HTH (posting late because I composed this earlier but never posted it.)

    They're always watching


    MikeV had said they would be coming at some point, since 200 halcyon is off the table... hopefully we'll still get some 210 ballistic too

    There are currently some Zest Travel Stuff Sack Options available but they appear to be selling. There are more Solaris options if you want an alternate bright color.

    I don't think that I have seen these in stock for some time, even if they are only now officially retired. The colored zipper variety that I really miss (and which sold out early) is the one with Spacer Mesh. I'll extract a couple of pictures from my 12-09-2019 post in the Key Troubles thread:

    Mini and Super Mini Ghost Whale Pouches with Mini Q-Kit
    These are Color Zipper Ghost Whale Organizer Pouches and a Mini Q-Kit
    Mini Spacer Mesh/Ultraviolet Zipper, Super-Mini ScrapBlack/Iberian Zipper, Mini Q-Kit Kiwi (retired color)
    Close-up view of open Mini Color Ghost Whale Pouch

    Close up view of keys in the open Mini Ghost Whale Pouch with Spacer Mesh/Ultraviolet zipper

    The spacer mesh provided some light padding and you could partially see through the mesh into the contents

    I'm definitely not going to tell you then, that both sizes of Zest and Fjord Spiff Kits are In Production too 😉
