    Darcy,
    I'd be really close to first in line for a steel TriStar with ultraviolet interior. I love that color combo please consider it.
    Thanks,
    Moose

    Ohhh, I thought the small shop bag was going to be extinct? I'm glad it's not, and I love this color.

    (And I can justify it, as an inattentive bagger at the grocery store apparently packed one of my solar shop bags into the cart of the guy in front of me, who amazingly hasn't brought it back to the lost & found.)

    I like the Ultraviolet! This color makes me finally want to something in Dyneema.

    Nice move, TB. Of course, we color lovers are asking for more! More!

    Oh man, I was planning on buying an Iberian shop bag someday but now there's Ultraviolet... Which do I want more?! Or do I save up for both? Maybe I'll get one in small and the other in large?

    Did the small shop bag handles get lengthened? I have one of the original steel shop bag and the handles are a bit short and I'm vaguely remembering hearing that they were changed but I'm not sure where to look to confirm this.

    Yes, to this! I really would like a couple of the clear quarter packing cubes made of this.

    And - sigh! - I'm off to order the Ultraviolet/Steel Synapse... I already have a Plum one (and love it), so what Marbenais said! More purple is always good!

    Happy dance.

    You might want to get one of the ultraviolet shop bags. I pack a small size shop bag in the side pocket of my Synapse, and it's very handy. The sapphire dyneema (one of the few that were made out of the stock or remaining sapphire Dyneema at the time the Shop bag was introduced -- you can see this in Maverick's video of the Shop bag) goes really well with the Indigo cordura. But if I had a plum Synapse I would put an ultraviolet Shop bag in the side pocket. I'm so happy they're making this in the small size. I also want to order a pen/pencil case sized clear organizer pouch in ultraviolet Dyneema, but I'll have to call in for that since the colors aren't listed for those pouches on the web site.

    HI Moriond,
    Might want to??? Oh I for sure want to, I want to make sure the budget can handle it first though. I promised myself I'd get a dyneema Synapse at my first opportunity so it was first on the list. I really do like the small Shop bag in ultraviolet. I've never been too keen on it until I saw it in the new color. As far as colors go anything steel and plum or ultraviolet is a winner for me.
    Thanks for the idea though, I do have a bit of time to add to my order.
    Happy travels,
    Moose

    I'd like that too!

    Woohoo! I love purple and anticipate adding some Ultraviolet pouches, stuff sacks, and shop bags to my Tom Bihn collection. I've had my eye on a Co-Pilot for a while now, and I have a feeling that I won't be able to resist getting one if Ultraviolet is offered as a lining color for it....
    I think this would be a killer color combination for a Co-Pilot -- I already have one in Steel/Solar (Ballistic nylon), but ultraviolet would be a great color combination for the interior (either Steel/Ultraviolet in all Dyneema, or in Ballistic/Dyneema, or else, Black/Ultraviolet). Even better would be to have the Ultraviolet Dyneema packing cubes. And, although I didn't add it to the wish list thread, I wish there were a pouch/packing cube that would be slightly longer than the existing pouches, which could fit the front bottom pocket of the Synapse to hold either clothing items, or small electronics and cables, and which could also be used for boarding passes when used as a flat pouch. Could be made in ultraviolet Dyneema (hint, hint!).

    I am doing exactly that, saving for a Synapse.

    Now, I have a dilemma, which fabric?
    Part of the problem is that I have two Synapses already -- Plum/Solar in Cordura/Dyneema & Steel/Solar in Dyneema/Dyneema. I'm going to give them as gifts to family members to justify ordering an Ultraviolet/Steel one for myself, but I need to do that first :-)
    The main difference I've found between the two fabrics is the weight -- well, and the Cordura can occasionally absorb liquids (not like walking in the rain, like spilling a liter of water on it while it's sitting on the floor . . . I'm very good at cleaning bags now!). The weight differential isn't huge, obviously, but it's noticable to me.

    Anyway, I'm very excited to be able to get lightweight bags in my favorite color! More purple is always good.
