      @Pokilani, I know that the really drool-worthy picture in my post is @celtical's collection of Steel, Ultraviolet, and Aubergine lovelies. The parent thread for that post also contains links to pictures of Dyneema Synapse combinations in Steel/UV, and UV/Steel. Again, I can claim no credit for the bags or the pictures (the nice Synapse combinations belong to @Moose) -- I just remember where I saw these, and wanted to share again.

        Here is my S19 steel dyneema/UV with a NW Sky SSB inside. The shimmer on the dyneema 200 is really pretty.

          Awake in the night, I clicked on TB forums for some soothing and saw my fav Aubergine Steel UV combo pictured, sleepily started admiring it and realized it was my own little family! Thanks, Moriond, for the happy memories. I did adopt a NWS TT, sweet indeed with the rest of those colors. I envision the lighter, shimmery gray as a great compliment and tonal accessory that's easy to spot against the steel or UV interiors. Love it!!

            Oh, and I'm totally in with the prospect of Island, too! Didn't get in on that color in person, but from what I see, it would be a fabulous accent color or small accessory option (or lining...:) against the Aubergine, greys and UV!

            I'm unclear what the status of Island is....don't want to get invested if it's a hard limited edition that's gone. But what are the chances of adding it as the oft-wished-for blue dyneema option on a more ongoing basis? I think it would SELL!!!

            And besides, TB is located in a fabulous watery outdoor environment, which just cries out for a brand support via a yummy watery blue in its palate. Go Island!

                Steel!Dyneema S19 and Zest SS fit right in with the black-and-orange Baltimore Orioles crowd here at Camden Yards (was a Nats-O's game, hence the Harper fan in foreground). Nats held on for a 7-4 win, yeah!!

                  travel Scrabble tile bag upgrade

                  I just got a new old Scrabble set, complete with kind of a lame tile bag. I looked at the size 1 Travel Stuff Sack I was about to return, and a genius idea was born.

                      Ha! This is awesome!
                      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                          My first Parapack Bags

                          After hearing and reading all the reviews/craze for recent Summer Debut, I finally receive my Island Travel Tray which I just ordered 2 weeks ago.

                          On the middle, the Island Travel Tray
                          Amazing Island Blue. I prefer this strand of blue, comparing to French Blue Cordura. I know they could be different especially the fabrics aren't the same either. It will very lovely this see Island Blue happily spread into others Accessories like Packing Cube series especially Shoulder Bag, Backpack (WS/TS). Even 3D Fabric Organizer Cube and Fabric Organizer Pouch. It is unfortunate that the Island is only available at limited Aeronaut Bag combo and I am sure it will be a great lining for other many Bags though I still prefer Solar.

                          On the right, All-Parapack Olive/Olive Small Cafe Bag (front) and Parapack Steel/Iberian Medium Cafe Bag (rear).
                          I am very impressed by the Parapack Olive. Before this, I only have them in my Snake Chamber and Double Clear Organizer Pouch. They aren't that Olive especially at night, as in they could become very dark shade. But this Small Cafe Bag isn't and it will even be more beautiful under the Street during daytime! Moving to MCB, my first impression of the MCB is somewhat unappealing or taking a back of what I really expecting. The Steel Parapack color is very neutral. I understand that, as I own a Packing Wedge in Steel Parapack too but didn't expect this wholly neutral. Also, it is bigger than I thought. Definitely my no vote for Large Cafe Bag which could too big for me. I find the Small Cafe Bag just right for me. Most of the time. I will see how this MCB works out.

                          The above, mentioned 3 are what I just got.

                          In case, anyone wonder what is on the left - Solar Travel Tray (Front) and Nordic Packing Cube Shoulder Bag (Rear). They are for comparison purpose.

                            I didn't know the cafe bags came in all parapack right now. I'm assuming these are new purchases since island is there.

                              @marrytattoo, the Parapack Cafe Bags that I got are traded.
                              They are traded separately months ago but I only have the opportunity to ship them back home (Asia) and see them last night.
