    Here's a quick outdoor photo. Photos of all the new colors (and the Paragons!) will be posted Monday/Tuesday Smilie We'll also be announcing the date the pre-order opens around then, too.

    I think thatís a pretty accurate color representation of Tidal. And, BTW, I was wondering whether anyone is thinking of that for the regular Paragon (used to be Insigne) color combination. I still think that Itís more difficult to render 200d Taiga accurately. I liked one of the descriptions (lichen) for this color.

    @Darcy -- do you expect the regular Truck to be in the next pre-order opportunity?

    Is Cerylon sticking around? I don't see anything upcoming beyond more PCSBs in the preorder.

    Those who already have the PCSB in Cerylon, what do you think? How does it differ from Halcyon?

    I haven't taken mine out yet so I can't comment on the fabric specifically, but the cobalt color is amazing! It's like a darker island with some black sand mixed in.

    Hi @Fluff ,

    Here are some comments I made comparing Cerylon to different TB fabrics, along with some photos. The short answer is, it feels similar to 400d Halcyon but perhaps a little stiffer, though the newness of the fabric may have something to do with this. I hope this helps!

    Quote Originally Posted by Cristina View Post
    Iíll have to put a caveat here to say that new unused bags will maybe be a bit stiffer than well-used ones, but I would say that the Cerylon seems stiffer than the 210 ballistic but perhaps not thicker. To me the Cerylon seems more crinkly, if that makes sense, whereas the 210 is slightly more supple.

    I poked my finger in the bag and then photographed it empty:




    The Cerylon feels slightly thinner than 400 Halcyon but at least as stiff. I poked my finger in the Nordic Halcyon (which is several years old) and then photographed it empty and the peak fell down a bit more (though there was more weight on a bigger piece of fabric, so it isnít exactly a like-for-like test):





    I never thought that Island was a greenish blue looking at it on its own, but next to Nordic, Cobalt and Island look very slightly teal because Nordic is nearly an indigo-like color (TB once had an Indigo I think but that predates me).

    Here is the Cerylon on top, the Nordic on the right and the Island on the bottom left.

    Here is Cobalt underneath an Island Travel Tray and an Island Ghost Whale. Theyíre practically the same.



    Overall I would say Island-lovers and Halcyon-lovers will really like Cobalt Cerylon.

    That is still undecided Smilie

    Oooooh, Tidal is nice! Another gesture for the cool-tone-loving crowd.

    @Darcy , what is unique about Cerylon? What problem does it solve?

    @organicfarmer I'm not Darcy but I for one love the option of a Halcyon fabric with a more subtle grid. I don't mind the white grid for interiors but as an exterior fabric it looks too busy and jarring.

    The Paragon photos are up! What a cooling looking bag. I love the GE edition in Wilderness, but I also love the halcyon ones too. That Taiga looks sharp. Itís Sophieís choice which one to order. I might need a couple so I can compare the virtues of the different types of fabric.

    Are the prices coming soon?

    No problem, really: just an option for those who would prefer a lining with a more subtle grid, as @Surrealle put it. However, Cerylon is really more of a lining fabric as opposed to an exterior fabric. We're offering it in the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag because it's a lightweight packing cube that can also be used as a shoulder bag.

    Just posted the final prices! And we'll be adding more in-use photos of the Paragon this week Smilie
