      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            I can hardly wait! My Nordic Pilot is scheduled to arrive on Monday!

              The Nordic is pretty nice... If my navy/solar won't arrive before 2/9, I wonder if I should change to the Nordic. I think I still prefer the navy, but having it for this trip might be nice..... TBCrew: thoughts?

                Yay! In time for your trip right? Mine arrives Monday too along with the Nordic SE. Thank you TB crew for getting these out so quickly!

                  Yes! My flight out is early on Wednesday. I'm very much looking forward to receiving the bag! I think it's going to work really well! I was over drooling over the photos Darcy posted on the forums earlier. They are gorgeous!

                    I do like the inverted zipper. I hope my backordered Co-Pilot comes with the inverted zipper

                      Sigh. I love the Nordic color as shown on Darcy's Pilot photos, and as shown on the TB website of other Nordic bags. However, the two times that I ordered Nordic (Synapse 19 and Shop Bag), I ended up returning them because the color in actuality appears so much darker -- almost navy to my eyes. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe I need my eyes checked...

                        Looks like my Navy/solar Aeronaut might need a companion. Now to decide if it should be Navy/Solar or Nordic/Solar....

                          I think the color in Darcy's first (closeup) picture of the Pilot is pretty accurate. There is a midnight cast to the Nordic blue that makes it go well with Navy, and which also makes the contrasting Solar interior work very well with this 400d Dyneema fabric.

                          @Darcy I actually phoned in earlier today to add some clear organizer wallets (in both 400d Black and Nordic Dyneema) to my order, and decided to ask them to also ship the Pilot in Nordic Dyneema/Solar with the order. I still think that I'll probably end up keeping the 400D Black/Wasabi Pilot combination of my original Pilot order, and returning the Nordic/Solar version, but this color combination is so gorgeous that I'd like to see it in person. Also, I made the phone call addition before Darcy posted these pictures.

                            I didn't think (past tenset) that I would really like Nordic/Solar and I don't seem to need a Pilot, but the pictures make me want to order one anyway!! Gorgeous!

                              Aaaahhhh. Thanks for posting those Darcy! Now Friday cannot come fast enough! I also ordered the Nordic/Solar Side Effect too along with some solar smaller travel sacs. It is truly a pretty site. Along in this shipment I am giving 3 gifts of Tom's creations. Now friends and family may begin to understand my addiction problem! Some of them know about my "problem"! 😊 (part of which was typing "Tim" and not Tom-fixed!)
