    When was the color "Zest" a thing? Obviously before I was Bihn-ified. There's a travel tray on eBay now, and its a stunning color...

    I believe it was 2015 or 2016. Zest was always a limited edition color, only around for a short time. There were a few limited edition colors (Fjord, Sitka, Monarch and Island) and there was voting on which one would be made permanent. Island won. I hope someone will correct me if I have gotten any of this wrong.

    Zest was a limited edition halcyon color that originally debuted in June 2015 along with Northwest Sky and Island. Read about it in the blog. https://blog.tombihn.com/zestislandsky

    And @Cristina is correct that in May 2016, there was a poll where we could vote whether Zest, Island, or Sitka would become a permanent halcyon color, and Island won that vote. https://forums.tombihn.com/general-b...00d-color.html

    Personally, I love Zest second only to Solar. Both of the colors are so easy to find in a bag, especially one with a dark interior. My wish is one day those two colors would return as a limited preorder.

    June 2015 marked the introduction of Zest, and as @pammy noted you can search these announcements in the blog. See the
    COLORS! Dyneema in a limited run of great colors thread that @Ilkyway started for pictures. As I mentioned before to Darcy, many of the pictures people want to see appear in debut day threads.

    I would love to see either of those colors (or solar) available again, but I'd settle for some new, bright, and potentially limited-edition colors.

    Agreed. I have a thing for subtle exteriors, the interiors with a huge "pop" in color. Nebulous/Island 210 is my current favorite example.

    Deep Blue/Zest would be amazing (That already overpriced Zest Travel Tray on eBay is calling to me)...

    @BowTrek, I am actually not a fan of the white grid w/ dark background colors, either. But the dark grid w/ dark blue just clash to me. I guess a medium gray would be my preference for Nordic.

    Absolutely agree with this. And I'm excited for an incoming Nebulous/Island Side Effect that I just ordered.

    The other combo that I quite like is just black or olive exterior with a northwest sky interior. It's subtle both inside and out, but then can be filled with a rainbow of colorful packing cubes and organizers. Sometimes, I do wish that I bought my Synapse 25 with a grey interior so that any organizers I carry in there would pop more. I have an iberian interior in mine, and that makes me less likely to buy iberian accessories. Would love to see zest, solar, and stika come back one day though...or maybe not because otherwise I'd end up spending more money...and I think I have one of virtually every TB organizer...well maybe except the PCSB which isn't coming back until Feb...

    Are there any plans to add a different color lining to the halcyon options for the copilot? I've been eyeing it for my next EDC (esp. original!!) , but for some reason, I just don't like the Wasabi color, and that's the only liner option for Halcyon exterior.

    I'm probably the only forum member who doesn't like the Wasabi color (I admit my weirdness - - even weirder bc I love Wasabi with my sushi!), so I apologize.

    I'd love to see Iberian or island liner option, or maybe a return of Nordic original exterior with a more subtle liner?

    Very much not. My only surviving LCB has a Wasabi interior and while I love the bag's design (BRING BACK THE LCB!!!), I've never not regretted holding out a little longer for a more suitable color.

    You're not, I absolutely DESPISE Wasabi. To the point of selling one of my favorite (non-TB) bags because it had a Wasabi interior and I absolutely couldn't stand to look at it. I won't buy bags even in my most favorite exterior color (Aubergine) if they have a Wasabi interior because I dislike it so strongly.
