    Darcy,
    Thanks for the update and for keeping hope alive. I placed my order for my N/I Tri-Star along with a couple of Iberian accessories earlier this afternoon before your post. I can hardly wait for my new bag to arrive. Maybe I'll be able to add a N/I Co-Pilot to my next order! Either way, I have one beautiful bag coming my way next week.

      Thanks JLE and Darcy, even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear. Guess I should hurry and order a navy / solar Western Flyer. After all, the outside color is more important to me. Still.......

      Susan

      P.S.
      I just remembered that I have an Iberian Packing Cube Backpack for Tri-Star / Western Flyer that I can put into a new navy WF. I'll pretend that it's lined with both solar and Iberian, maybe even glue the PCBP in there. :-)

        This makes me so tempted to snap up a Navy Iberian Tri-Star myself...hmmm...time to do those taxes and see what's left

          Sometimes insomnia has its own rewards...

          Since I couldn’t sleep, I decided to check in on the TB website, and low and behold the N/I Aeronaut is available again for pre-order. Needless to say, it’s already ordered before I miss out on it a second time. I’m so excited that my Tri-Star will soon have a matching playmate. Thank you Tom Bihn for offering this fabulous color combination again. Yippee!!!

            Navy/Iberian would almost definitely push me over the edge on the WF order ...
            List under construction ....

              It is such a dilemma. There is no real hurry for me to order a new WF (other than my own enthusiasm to increase my TB collection) - I can always borrow my husband's in the short term. But I do want a new one before my Bhutan trip next year. Perhaps I should wait to see what comes down the pipeline in the next few months. After all, I suppose it will always be available in black, which I would be perfectly happy with. But N/I would match my TriStar and put me over the edge too (if I can't have Cardinal, that is, and unfortunately Katy has dashed all hope on that front...).

                Awesome! I voted for the Navy/Iberian in the poll.

                I am flipflopping between the Aeronaut & the Tristar.

                Of course, we all know that when folks bit by the Tom Bihn bag flipflop, they end up buying both bags - just a matter of time

                  Hurray!! I'm getting in line as well...now if we could convince the TB crew to make a N/I Co-Pilot and N/I Synapse, I would personally be in Navy/Iberian heaven! Ha!

                    Will the Tristar return in Navy/Iberian?

                    Or the Western Flyer (backpack and/or rolling luggage pocket)?

                    I hope so! I will TOTALLY flip for any of the above in this order: 1) Tristar; 2) Wstern Flyer backpack; 3) Western Flyer pocket

                      Just curious if there are any plans to make either the Western Flyer (backpack) or Co-Pilot in navy/iberian, now that solar will no longer be an option? I know I've mentioned it elsewhere, but KUDOS again for the advent of the navy/iberian Synapse! I've already ordered it and feel like a kid counting down the days until Cmas as I await its arrival! Happy happy joy

                        No plans for Navy/Iberian in either of those bags. We are making the Western Flyer in Steel/Iberian in both the Backpack Straps and Rolling Luggage Pocket versions, though.
                        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                        Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

                          What about the Tristar? Will it come back in navy with a lining other than steel?

                            We're pretty spontaneous around here, so I can't say for sure, but I do think Navy/NewMysteryDyneemaColor is a sure thing...
