    Unboxing

    My order placed on Tuesday shipped Tuesday and arrived - today. Apologize if the colors are slightly off due to sun/shadow.

    The FJN is a a present, I had to refrain from getting an additional red blend one for myself.

    When I prepared the order I noticed that there where still stuff sacks in solar left (sadly no YSSs) and although usually yellow is not my color, I wanted to at least give it a try and have the chance of owning one and knowing what the solar lovers are talking about ;).

      Yes, it is an olive parapack S19 with a wasabi PCBP, kiwi mini Q-kit, and verde small Q-kit.

        Great photos, Squirrel! The Grey FJN looks so smart and office-appropriate. I think my friend will love his. Monday can't come soon enough 8-)

          A slightly darker shot. I felt this shot is more true to everyday color especially one work more frequently in indoor.

          I am hoping to acquire/trade a Steel Ballistic/Solar A45 someday to add to that Steel/Grey Collection.

          Please take note that the photo's color may differ in different lighting or brightness level. From my point of view, Photo#3 Darker shot is more true in reality.

          *I will post up a brief review about my like with Dyneema and Ballistic CP soon. I understand that this topic has been frequently discuss.

            Olive pp/Wasabi dyneema really pwns. There is something so vivid about two together! I have that combo in a SCB and it makes me go *___* every time.

              Synapse 25 in Grey/Iberian

              Hi Everyone,

              I just received my S25 in Grey/Iberian. I love it! (It will be replacing my S25 in Black Dyneema/Iberian).

              I tried my hardest to use the lighting and shadows to capture the most accurate appearing grey in the pictures.

              With my S25, I have pictured the following from 12 o'clock in clockwise order: COW (crimson), Q-kit (aubergine), SE (steel), Q-kit (navy), padded organizer pouch (small), padded organizer pouch (mini), mini COP (forest), 3DOC (olive parapack), SC (steel parapack), TSS Size 1 (solar).

                Got the FJNs today. I'm planning to use mine as a loose-leaf notebook. What I did after getting it was to unbind the notebooks I've used this semester (Doane Paper and a French-ruled Clairefontaine), cut the pages, punch holes and load it into the FJN. It wasn't very smooth-sailing since my 3-hole adjustable puncher hasn't arrived, but I've since managed to get the hang of using a 2-hole punch. Am currently designing my own dividers for our FJNs.

                As a side note, they are-- or feel?-- a lot bigger than expected, even though I'd drawn and cut out the dimensions of the FJN on scrap paper to get a feel of its size before buying. This is not really a Filofax replacement-- it is more like a self-contained note-taking kit. It's pretty damned great. Now I just wish the zips were smoother.

                ETA: All set up now! Unused cut notebook pages go in front, to be used during the rest of the sem. Dug through my stack of souvenirs and found an A5 postcard from one of my favourite English restaurants, punched holes and turned it into a divider. Class notes from the previous week go behind and are all together in one place instead of being spread over 2 notebooks. The control-freak in me loves the flexibility of loose-leaf notebooks-- I can put anything inside and arrange it however I want. Next up: pocket organisers from Daytimer!

                  This is, what I got for mine. Maybe a bit of an overkill? But this baby can punch!

                  Will your Hobonichi live in the front pocket? What a stunning color this Red Blend is.

                    Haha, mine's pretty much that too. It does up to 50 pp at once. I love it so much. Is yours 2 or 3 hole?

                    And no the hobonichi won't go in the front pocket as it's too thick. It actually goes in my SCB :-)

                      It is 3 hole and can have even 4 but since it has to do FJN-duty we took out the 4th punch.

                        My Dyneema Swift arrived, and I was able to stuff it immediately with 20 pounds of really special (felts really well!) wool. I was amazed that this wool was able to cram itself in so neatly. I will say, this wool tries to cram itself into each and every TB bag I get. I really wish I had the picture of it trying to diligently get into a PCSB, but only part of it fit. Anyway, here's a pic of the stuffed bag.Click image for larger version

                        The bag passed the taste test too.

                        And the napping test was exemplary.

                        Remarkable trial run; I can already tell this bag is going to be a favorite of mine :-)

                          Still loving the PU as gym bag. And the color makes me smile :-)
