    I’m assuming that’s the same Cloud/Dawn L15 that @Lia reviewed in her thread.

        My first Bihn bag was a SCB in Deep Blue/Grass that I bought a couple years ago.

        A couple of backpacks, SKs, SEs, and a PT later, I finally broke down and got a MCB.

        I’d been on the fence for a while about the color and FS-or-no-FS, but I ultimately went with Alphaviolet 525 with the Cloud 210 interior, and a FS in Island 210.

        I’m pleased with how the combo turned oit:







        It’s my first encounter with Cloud on a larger scale (I got a GW in Cloud and was kind of meh about it), but I’m liking Cloud as a light and neutral interior fabric.

                On the intra-airport tram at the Minneapolis-St Paul airport, NFTD + L12. (The splash of orange on the top of the Night Flight is a luggage tag; I put the Aubergine luggage tag on the Burnt Orange bag and vice versa. :) )

                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.

                  At Munich Airport with the Hero’s Journey and the small Zip Top Shop Bag.







                  Lunch in Torremolinos with the Travel Cubelet.





                  I flew on a couple of United 777’s, and a couple Lufthansa A320’s. The Hero’s Journey fit wonderfully in the overhead storage.

                  I had packed the Shop Bag for bringing back anything I may pick up while traveling, and it worked out perfectly! The hard part is not eating the chocolate that I’m supposed to be bringing back because it’s so easily accessible!

                    I deviated from my usual workday EDC today.

                    Instead of bringing one of my S25s, I loaded my laptop with its accessories along with my rain parka + umbrella into my seldom-used S19, and brought my new MCB to carry my wallet, iPhones, Kindle, keys, spare battery, etc.

                    I was struck by how not-large (tiny?) the S19 looks next to the MCB.

                      Dawn is such a great neutral color. I've been using my TC a lot lately, running errands and so on. It's a great little bag.

                        My MCB hanging out on yet another rainy, nebulous day... holding everything I need to get work done.

                          My nebulous gray Truck helped me to keep some of my bike gear organized - sorry it blends into the dark interior.



                          Of course thanks to an older thread in this forum, my recent acquisition of a used folding bike has stoked my wish to have a Brompton, since they fold so small and elegantly!

                            Recently bought the Original (white grid) Black halcyon / Island S19... decided to remove the metal zipper pulls and just go with the straight cord pulls, like on the older Steel halcyon/Solar S19 I have.
                            Based on previous commentary on this Forum, I picked up some alternate 425 paracord patterns... The two side pockets have semi-matching black/grey that blend in...all the other zips have the blue/black for a nice little pop of colour
                            :)

                              Lovely! I have an A30 in that colorway.

                              Would you mind sharing where you got your paracord (and which kind you got)? I ordered some paracord a while back from Amazon but it wasn't quite the same thickness as the TB pulls (a bit thicker). :)

                                Should have included it in my original post :)

                                The 425 thickness is what seems to match the TB version. The default that you find under a general search is usually thicker, so just include '425' or '3mm' in your search and watch to ensure it doesn't just dump you into 'paracord'

                                'bruiser' is the blue

                                'touch of grey' is the grey/black that looks really nice (IMO) with Steel, Original (white grid), and Black halcyons
