    Not quite yet, but definitely in a week from today. We have to keep some things a surprise!

    If I am not wrong, @icebeng pointed out the Product Name's Update of Cordura Organizer Pouch to Cordura/Parapack. I quickly place a Large Parapack Steel OP. However, there wasn't any Mini.
    The reference link was @icebeng's post #200 on 23 January 2015 in the Back Orders/Back in Stock sticky thread:

    Cordura or Parapack Organizer Pouches - Organizer Pouches Made of 1000 or 500d tough Cordura nylon. Lots of colors. - TOM BIHN
    I also ordered a large steel parapack organizer pouch. This material is good for carrying items outside of bags. I still prefer my 500d Cordura large organizer pouches for general paper carrying, where I don't need that much structural support (plus, I like the colors of Cayenne, Wasabi, Crimson, etc. as well as Steel).

    A lot of the other organizer cubes in Parapack refreshed at the same time. I was traveling around the third week of January when this post went up, so I didn't get an order in until a few days later.

    I was thinking of getting 3D Cubes in Parapack but decided to wait until the new announcements.
    @backpack, That quote that begins "And the revival of 420d HT Parapack continues:…" is from the last paragraph of the November 12, 2013 blog post about Parapack:
    The Story behind 420 Denier High Tenacity

    It could not be from November 2014 if it goes on to say "we’ve made our Small, Medium, and Large Café Bags, Synapse 19, Synapse 25, 3D Fabric Organizer Cube, and 3D Mesh Organizer Cube available in 420d HT Parapack."

    The Large Cafe Bag in any format sold out in September (2014), and did not reappear until yesterday. None of the 8 new LCB offerings available for back order by late April is Parapack on the outside, though seven of them use Parapack lining combinations (Azure/Olive, Black/Steel, Burnt Orange/Steel, Grey/Olive, Olive/Steel, Orange 152/Navy, and Red Blend/Olive) with the eight being a Dyneema (Black 400d Dyneema/Wasabi) combination. It's true that there was one LCB in Olive Parapack found on thé showroom floor for someone who reported back about finding that bag too floppy, and who may have returned it.

    I agree with @Tlactme that the present blog pages are difficult to search.

On the other hand, they have been restocking pouches in Parapack, and for the first time (at least, that I can recall), I've been able to order large organizer pouches in Parapack. OK, they only had Black and Steel. I think that listing showed up near the very end if January, when they restocked 3D organizer cubes (fabric, mesh, etc.) in various Parapack colors, and I think some of the Snake Charmers may also have refreshed around then?

    This is just from rough memory and someone else may chime in, but lot of the accessory options in Parapack restocked around then -- end of January. And Hannah might have been on vacation around then?

    Sorry not be more precise, but I was traveling just before then

    But no Kelly. Yet, perhaps?
    I think I'm just gonna get a MCB Kelly and reserved the bigger space Bag for DLBP in Kelly, as well.

    Anyway, does anyone remember any comparison photo of Kelly and Olive side by side?

    It is almost end of February, 3 more days (Seattle Time). I think it is most likely on first of March. Any more hints?

    I saw what you did there, Darcy - but I think there must be a problem. Isn't the underlined bit supposed to scratch off to reveal the name underneath? I keep scratching at the screen of my iPad but I think your post must not be rendering correctly - the scratch-off bit won't!
