    It might be a little soon to ask about pros and cons of bag duplicates for the DLBC, but here goes. I just started using the dyneema one, and it's terrific. It holds my Cache with 13-inch rMBP, file folders, charger, phone, and I carry an MCB separately as a handbag.

    I just feel bad returning the Cordura one as the colors are so rich in Cordura and the texture beautiful. Doesn't roll up as compact, though, and I really don't need two of the bags as I expect this will be in production for some time even if I need to replace the dyneema one down the road, unlikely as that is. I may fashion the cordura one into something else...but I am not an artist or photographer, and have plenty of TB bags already! So I am going to mull it over another week or two.
    What color is your Cordura one?

            FWIW...

            FYI, I just started a thread in the "Questions about bags & accessories" sub-forum about the Daylight Briefcase, with questions about how items can be carried.

              This is what happens when you can't decide on a color...

                @maverick.....since most of us have seen your collection, as colorful as any, why not pick a color you don't already have--if that's possible.

                    Actually, I don't have anything in Coyote or Grey yet. I do have a French Blue Daylight Backpack, which is what I carry most everyday. And it's such a lovely color, which only makes me want to get the Daylight Briefcase in French Blue...

                    I also don't have anything in Burnt Orange or Black Dyneema...

                      Excellent point! :)

                      Although, my son, who used to love taking pictures with holding Tom Bihn bags and wanted to be in Tom Bihn videos, now refuses to carry anything Tom Bihn. He isn't even a teenager yet, and already he's rebelling...oh where did I go wrong???

                      I think it's a phase. The seed of appreciation for Tom Bihn bags that we have sown will eventually bear fruit is what I keep telling myself...

                        Okay, I can't keep looking at the Daylight Briefcase page - I need to get some work done! Order placed! Now, I need to be patient until it arrives...

                        Also placed an order for the Synapse 19 Freudian Slip, to be used in the Daylight Backpack!

                          @maverick.....you know there are 10,000 females on this site who are dying to know what color you ordered...and half will be mad that you didn't order it aubergine--even though it's not offered in that color. (Not that it matters.)

                          (Ooh, I think I'm gonna get a lot of hate replies.....)

                              You're a brave man to say that, Frank! :)

                              I ordered Coyote, Grey and French Blue. Part of me is scared that I may end up keeping all three...

                              I really, really, really would love to have the Daylight Briefcase (and Daylight Backpack) in Parapack!

                              I have a Black Parapack Brain Bag, and I love the fabric!

                              Darcy, would that be a possible?

                              Thanks!

                                You are absolutely right, luvdabags!

                                I also ordered Coyote and Grey! :)
