    I think that's Sapphire, based on the front design of the bag. If it has the attachments for the Brain Cell instead of the Caches, I'm pretty sure it is. (Sapphire Cordura and Indigo Ballistic Nylon were stunning colors and I wish I'd gotten bags in them when I had a chance - I had a first-run Co-Pilot in Indigo/Solar but gave it to my father since I really don't like Solar.)

      Oh, I think you might be right! I had assumed it was French Blue, because I didn't realize Sapphire used to be an exterior color. But I just found this thread from 2014 with lots of photos of lovely blue bags including Sapphire: All my blues, including Azure (page 2)
      I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

      I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

        It's also possible that the color of the brain bag may be indigo blue cordura . It looks to be from that era with the portable culture tag. Maverick's video may help you with the color. https://youtu.be/Gzl6AnMxP7U

          The L12 doesn't fit my shoulders very well, but I found someone who loves it.


          In case you're wondering what's in it:

            Swapped out my usual western flyer for this trip to the US. The S25 did me proud.

              So much Nebulousness... or is that Nebulosity?

              Super excited to receive my Ghost Whales in Nebulous today... so here are a few pics (A5-small-mini Nebulous GWs side-by-side for scale, and then mini GWs in Nebulous 525 and Dawn 210).

              I've been in Camp Steely McSteelpants for some time, but Nebulous is fantastic (as are Cloud and Dawn): they may be testing my loyalty. lol

              Love the direction TB is going with the new 525 and 210 ballistic fabrics and colors... and looking forward to the arrival of my Luminary 15 in Nebulous/Dawn in April!

              Also picked up a couple of the new PCSBs in Dawn and Black 210 (pic below).

              I officially have waaay too many PCSBs (in Dyneema and Halcyon), but there was no resisting them in solid colors of ballistic 210.

                Me to mom: hey I brought these travel trays for the nightstand to corral your stuff. Just pick which one you like and it’s yours.

                Mom: Oh I don’t have a preference I like them both.

                Sounds cute right?

                ...

                Except she keeps forgetting which one is hers and is using both. lol!
                Good thing I have a wasabi PCSB I can use instead!

                    I saw a local brew today at Costco and immediately thought of the forums.

                            I love my new A5 GWOP! I packed as follows:
                            • Tissues, lip balm, lens cleaning cloth, small Dawn GWOP and work keys in the zipped front pocket
                            • Phone in the inside pocket, pens in the pen slots
                            • Notebook and weekly planner in the A5 GWOP
                            • Plus wallet, water bottle and car/house keys


                            I have a conference next week and wondered which bag I should take, but now I think I’ll go with the SCB... With the new pouch I can use for notebook/papers it’s gotten more usable for work purposes!

                                My RB36 on the train to Leipzig... Very much underpacked for four days, but very comfortable to carry. Not pictured is my DLBP (decided against the SCB for the week, an underpacked DLBP is just more practical for grocery shopping etc.).
