    Yes, I did, actually. I love NWS for interiors of my bags, but really, any halcyon (with its grid) is a bit too informal for office use, and I also like beefier materials, too. (Plus, it further suffers from the lack of character similarly to black.)

    Seconded. I absolutely love Northwest Sky, but as an interior fabric. I tried to love it as an exterior in a Travel Cubelet, but I'm just not a fan of the grid pattern on the outside of my bags, so I sold it.

    I'm still holding out hope for a Cloud Travel Cubelet in a future production run (and of course, waiting impatiently for the new Aubergine 525, too!)

    Very excited for aubergine 525 too, it's my favourite colour. I also like the NWS color, it really surprised me. I thought it would be much lighter, but it is a surprisingly nice shade of gray, really does remind me of the the North West, aptly named.

What about a single different 210 ballistic---dawn, or even viridian or cloud? (Really, though, dawn would be wonderful; sedate, yet with a touch of character.) I know you previously mentioned that TB declined to use those colors/material, but that was before the the altered decision for black 210. <Insert Lincoln's quote about pleasing some of the people some of the time here> Smirk
    Thanks for the appreciation and I hear you @ThomGault! That said, adding another 210 color isn't something we plan to do.

    The black ballistic original large shop bag is now listed as in production, my fine Forum Peeps!
    Thanks again @Darcy!

    Any chance we can see a photo of a black ballistic zipped shop bag interior? I imagine it would be all black on the inside? Cheers

    It should be solid black inside & out as the shop bags are a single layer of material, not lined.

    If it is like the previous batches of Black 210d Ballistic Shop Bags (in both large and small size), the only thing that is not black ballistic is the edging on the interior pockets. (I don't have a picture of this -- especially since it would look all black -- but you can get an impression by looking at a picture of the Shop Bag used in inverted mode:



    This is a picture of the the Small UV Shop Bag used in inverted mode to carry culinary herbs in the pockets -- which now bulge outwards, and effectively increase the carrying capacity. It was posted by @monkeylady. You can see the light-colored tape along the top of the inner pocket at the bottom of the picture. That's the same color tape that shows up in the Large and Small Shop Bags that were made in 210d Ballistic Nylon. And since the Halcyon Zip-Top Shop Bags preserve the same kind of internal structure for the pockets as the regular shop bags, I don't see why they would decide to do something different for the Black Ballistic Nylon ones.

    HTH

    ETA: It's a lot easier to see the details of the Shop Bag construction when everything isn't black!

    Here's the picture of the Zip-Top Shop Bag in Northwest Sky from the Product Page. I'd imagine that everything inside is Black Ballistic Nylon except for the tape at the top edge of the inside pockets -- which would be exactly the same color as in the this picture and as in the picture of the inverted small UV Shop Bag shown above:

    I went to finish up my order and it looks like everything is closed already for the preorder. Bummer. Frown
