    My steel/uv western flyer and i are currently in the white hill towns of southern Spain. It took some persuasion for me to get a noncolour but the uv insides keep my colour need satisfied.

    Actually, my WF doesn't have backpack straps. I do worry about the future, though; it would be tragic for those who follow to be deprived.

    Sorry, I meant no additional colors - just black and navy, sorry! Take care, LauraA

    Reporting back after seeing the navy Synapse and Imago. It's the Ballistic navy that I prefer, rather than the Cordura.

    I think what's meant is the only colors backpack WF's will be offered in are navy and black for the time being.

To all - I know that black and blue are fine together, but I'll just look so serious. I'm a retired grandma having fun - I'm not on a business trip or on my way to a funeral!! Take care, LauraA
    Awwww. I'm a sad panda.

    That navy goes with black, IMHO. That's why my Zephyr looks so good.

    Wait just a minute! Are you saying navy and black don't match??

    Oh wait, THEY DON'T MAKE IT ANYMORE!!!! OH NOOOOO

    I just assumed it was still available. I was thinking of switching to the newer model with the zippered bottle compartment and was thinking of getting it in cardinal.

    Darcy!! There are at least two loyal customers who would buy the cardinal with backpack straps!! Any chance you might have a small run?!?!?!?!?

    Me too! Red travel bags - once my son was meeting me at a hotel in NYC - he lived in the city, and I was staying at the hotel. The desk accidentally let him into the wrong room, and he knew that it wasn't my room because the bag was black!! Take care, LauraA
