    That's in the works, but our mill keeps these things close to the vest until they're good and ready. That's all we can say at this point.

    I love the idea of the gray grid. I would be seriously tempted by any bag that was black with gray grid..
    Off the top of my head. I wouldn't be able to resist UV or gray interior in..
    Co pilot
    WF
    Side effect
    I think this could be the kind of emergency that credit cards were meant for��

    Whoa, so classy-looking! Assuming the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag will be available in this, it will actually look like a really nice purse I can take to a business meeting!! (as if I have one of those. But still). Woot woot!!

    Great to see you innovating with fabrics. I love my recently acquired Smart Alec, in the fabric previously known as Dyneema. It, however, would not take much to make me pull out the credit card for a black/gray Halcyon SA with a Zest or Island interior. An Upper Modular Pocket in Zest or Island plus some color matched Gatekeeper Straps would also be cool.

    Uh oh

    And just when I'd almost become used to my checkerboard luggage (love, love the weight but still was dreaming of a subtler pattern).

    And *maybe*, someday colors other than black?

    Double Uh Oh.

    Oh, heck...just take all my money!

    Perhaps it's time to sell my Aeronaut 45 and Aeronaut 30 in Steel Dyneema and replace them with the new black grid? HMMMM.......?????

    Oh my goodness... Need. Need. Need!

    And if we're voting on interior I vote an S25 with Island interior. That would look amazing with the black exterior. Otherwise Iberian

    I almost stopped breathing there for a minute! Oh the dark beauty of the black grid. New S25 here I come! (the 2 I already own are perfectly serviceable, but there will be no restraint-as it is the best bag ever assembled). UV interior is my absolute favorite, but I would have to buy them both if an Island interior was offered as well. This is so exciting. Thank you, TB team.

    Wait, why am I thanking you?? That whooshing sound in my ears is my bank account flowing out toward the PNW. Ack! hehe...jk. Worth every penny! I can hardly stand it! Will I make it to April??

    At some point, please oh please make LCBs in the black grid. My everyday/everywhere/all the time home and travel carry is my Blk Dyn LCB. Even with its evil wasabi interior, I still adore it above all other purses/PLOs, and am ridiculously faithful to it. Please make a black grid LCB with UV or Island interior (or a blue/purple-of some sort-interior). After all, a girl needs a "formal" bag that works for those special occasions.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I never liked the look of the Dyneema. This new fabric, though, looks FANTASTIC!!!!! I love the way you guys never sit back on your laurels, but rather are always forging ahead with new and innovative products!!!
