    Is that a legal documents case with wheels ? If so, it's the first time I've seen one! We only have floating around the office a shared stock of boxy, bulky and unwieldy docs cases which are carried by hand - something like this:

    As a trainee a long time ago, I have "happy" memories of schlepping around town in the midst of a hot Greek summer, suited up and struggling with one of these heavy cases stuffed full of documents for signing. I would not want to do that in Singapore!

      That's correct, and I'm surprised, because it's a very common sight around here! But maybe it's just a litigation thing, because I did spend a month in a corporate department and never saw them being used. (I know someone who can stack two of these bags on top of each other and transport both at once -- like, seriously?!)

      Right now we are in the middle of a trial, so that schlepping of bundles of heavy documents in suits is happening everyday. And yes, the heat is killer-- even waiting 10 min for the firm car to arrive can get pretty nasty :-(

        Aeronaut 30 in Aubergine & Sitka

        I thought I would share pics of my new A30, along with northwest sky packing cubes & a travel tray I had previously. Totally love the aubergine/sitka. I did a closeup as best I could on the travel tray and sitka forum gift (THANK YOU!) so folk can see the colors together, as that was one thing I was wondering about before ordering. My lighting isn't great, but ah well. Here's hoping the folk at TB will soon make some sitka stuff sacks! I just also ordered an ultraviolet laundry sack & size 2 uv stuff sack (to stuff a down vest into). Ready for all the travel now! :) (Scandinavia this summer for two weeks, woo hoo! and of course lots of Oregon/Washington weekend trips to come.) The little "enjoy your trip" note on the card from Tom was a very nice touch!

          Wow! Those colors are gorgeous together. @brendabethman is going to be so happy. So awesome to have a note from Tom (or anyone from TB)!

            Thanks for the pics! I have to say, Sitka is driving me crazy. Depending on which computer I'm at, and who's taking the pics, sometimes it looks kind of turquoise, sometimes kelly green, sometimes more of a forest or hunter green - it's just ALL over the place. I ordered a shop tote, but I have NO idea what color it's really going to be! Guess I'll find out in a few days.

              My small Yarn Stuff Sack (Iberian) and mini OP (Fjord) in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. These colours look AMAZING together!

                @terayon, Puerto Vallerta, Mexico is one of the sites that I associate with the Monarch Butterfly migrations Admittedly, this is the wrong time of year for Monarch Butterflies to seek warmer climes in Mexico (and parts of Southern California), but don't you think you should have shown one of your Monarch pouches there, too? (And you can look up Monarch Butterflies and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on TripAdvisor to find local Monarch Butterfly sanctuaries.

                Hope you are enjoying your stay.

                ETA: @Badger's comparison post of Monarch (top) with Zest (bottom) from the Monarch, Sitka, and Fjord: Tasting Notes thread for the obligatory reference to Monarch to go along with the Puerto Vallarta, Mexico location:

                ETA2: @Washu, if you're asking about color accurate pictures of Sitka, which I think of as being like Sitka Spruce, it's not bright like Turquoise or Kelly. It think the most color accurate pictures of Sitka were taken by @Ilkyway in the thread that I linked one paragraph above. Here's her picture of Sitka, Monarch, and Fjord:

                  I feel exactly the same way, The left side of Aeronaut and the Pouch on top of the Packing Cube look turquoise but the other side of the Aeronaut and the exact same Pouch inside the Travel Tray look kelly green.

                  Love the first color, don't like the other.

                    Indeed, I am very happy!! While there is no denying that OH/Island are quite pretty, this combination makes my heart sing!

                    @Darcy could I also have an Aubergine/Sitka Swift, please? Pretty please, with sugar on top?

                      It's not turquoise! That's the funny lighting. Easter egg pic is the most accurate to life.
                      I'd love Fjord in a stuff sack too. Gorgeous color.

                        Oh dear. I'm starting to get a sneaking suspicion I'm not going to like Sitka when I see it. Someone I know may be getting a shop tote for their birthday!

                              Thank you, I think so too! I tried to capture Sitka's color in the sunlight. It's a beautiful green!

                                Yes! I have all three LE colours on the trip with me and I'm going to try to get some pictures of them later. Monarch just isn't here with me right now.

                                And I dropped a hint about the Monarch-Mexico connection in the Spoilers thread a day or two before the debut - it was a bit too subtle, I think.
