    @xyppy, I don't know how you define olive green and forest green since color names can mean different things to different people. But I'd call Wilderness a forest green that's a little bit on the yellow side (not to be confused with the discontinued TB color Forest, which was what I'd call a forest green that's a little bit on the blue side).
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    Here's a Wilderness super-mini GWOP on top of my Olive Brain Bag. I feel that Wilderness is definitely a much more "pine" color than olive.

    I ordered a sample and agree that it's a forest green.

    You can also contact the fine folks in Customer Service and request fabric swatches - they'll send them out for free and then you can see & feel the fabric, compare it to your current stuff, etc.

    Thanks y'all for answering my question so quickly. I just ordered a Constellation blue TC and asked if swatches of Wilderness and Ursa could be sent along with it. I think I'll order an S19 in the winning color between Constellation blue, Ursa and Wilderness once I can see each of the colors. Instant reflex is to order the S19 in Constellation blue but I don't want to neglect the other two colors that I might like even better.

    Wilderness is pretty close to Conifer, if that helps

    Apologies if this has been posted already, but it looks like the A30 and A45 are getting versions in Ursa, Constellation and Wilderness. No pictures yet, but their pages say that they're in production.

    We do hope to make the Luminary 15 in the new 525d colors. At this point, it's really about what we need to make and when that happens and how much fabric we have left. I hope I'll have some more specific news to share soon...

    Hoping against but think I will get a similar answer with this question....any Ristretto’s on the way with the new ballistic and/or halcyon?
    No plans to offer the Ristretto in the new 525d colors or w/ the new 200D Halcyon colors as linings. Sorry.

I'm thinking I'll order it in the Wilderness just to be different yet oh so earthy coordinated. Darcy, any chance that these will become available at the same time so I can order them both together?
    My response is super late on this I know, but I did want to give a Side Kick update: they'll be in-stock within about two weeks from now, so early March.

I know you mentioned in blog that Synapse was far less as a whole but I am curious on colors too. I assume most of us went towards new colors. Thanks! Looking forward to receiving mine.
    Synik 30 was the most popular size. Most popular colors overall: Ursa, Black, and Wilderness.

    Indeed they will be! You'll see Monster Trucks in 630d 50% Recycled (Seapine, Nebulous, Logic) and the new 525d colors (Ursa, Constellation, Wilderness, Coyote) as soon as late this week or early next.

    @moriond has convinced us to offer the Side Effect in 200d Halcyon, and thus it will be made available in Solar, Coyote, and Sitka this year. I am going to guess sometime March - July at this point.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    @pammy,

    It must have been the supporting cast of other requests for the Side Effect in 200d Halcyon -- along with your continued posting of pictures of your Solar (and other SEs) in 200d Halcyon -- because, I've been asking for this for a long time, and not gotten a successful response!

    And won't it be cool to see the SE in Sitka?

    ETA: Decided to quote the post with pictures in question -- even though it's just earlier in this thread:

These are my three Side Effects in 200d and they are my favorite SEs.



    Here is a comparison of a Solar Side Effect and a swatch of the new Solaris. They’re close in color, but Solaris is slightly darker. Very happy we will soon see a second generation of Solar.

    Also adding one of @pammy's recent pictures from Disneyland:

    Cool news on the SEs... I'm holding out for Travel Cubelet in Solaris - I use those way more than SEs

    Basically @Darcy, we want every bag to have a Solaris option (and Sitka, Coyote, Zest, Monarch, Fjord, and and and and)

    Oh man, I want Fjord stuff so badly. Even just an organizer pouch or something small. What a gorgeous color.

    The Travel Cubelet is a better fit for me too. Now that we’re breaking with convention, could we please see a Travel Cubelet in Original Halcyon? I want one so bad and time is running out...

    @moriond,

    Oh, yes, a Sitka Side Effect will be really excellent! Sitka is such a great color. For anyone who hasn't requested fabric swatches of 200d Solaris and Coyote, I recommend that they do so, so they can see it in person. I was happily surprised how much I like Coyote. It's really cool. I have many Side Effects in different fabrics and the 200d halcyon ones are so awesome on their own or to use as a bag within a bag. Can't wait to see these new Side Effects.
