    Equal Opportunity

    Ahem, I have been on the fence about a Packing Cube Backpack for my WF, and realized today it was because I want UV or Solar.
    Why is the Aeronaut PCBP in UV and not the Tristar/WF PCBP.
    We Tristar/WF users want Equal Opportunities!
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    My solution was to get the PCBP in Iberian and the PCSB in Ultraviolet
    Owner of Burnt Orange/Steel Daylight Briefcase , Burnt Orange/Steel Aeronaut 45, Black Dyneema/Wasabi Pilot, Crimson/Steel Western Flyer, Forest/Steel Zephyr, Olive/Cayenne Ristretto for iPad, Olive/Cork/Steel and Cardinal/Hemp/Steel Imago, Plum/Wasabi Side Effect, Nordic/Ultraviolet, Linen/Steel and Conifer/Steel SCB, Steel Breve, Plum/Black Swift, Steel FJN, and various packing cubes, organizer pouches, caches, and other odds and ends.


      Oh, another vote for both solar and UV Packing Cube Backpacks!

      I think the reason we're not seeing Solar on the new stuff is because it's one of their older inventory fabrics. Remember the Aeronaut PCSB came out much earlier than the smaller one.

      I'm a huge Dyneema fan. Anything more that you can make in Dyneema, I will be happy. Just think, no need to design new patterns for those!

      Things I'd love to see in Dyneema:

      - Side Effect
      - 3D Clear Organizer Cube (and also, a 3D Organizer Cube that's ALL Dyneema, with no clear panel. Heck while we're there, non-clear versions in 1000 denier Cordura like the regular Side Effect)
      - Cafe Bags

      Of course, my dream bag would be an actual Western Flyer in Dyneema. I don't think that'll ever happen, but a girl can dream!
