    Squee!!!!!! I don't know that I have enough personality to carry a big bag in alphaviolet, but a SideEffect, I think I could do in that lovely shade of purple

    I am REALLY hoping that the first pairing with Mars Red is Viridian. The more I look at the Luminary page the more I like that combnation. I think. Very 80's looking. A SE would be a nice small way to test out a color combination.

    We made samples of the Luminary and the Stowaway in 400d Halcyon, and here's what we decided:

    We're all in agreement that 400d Halcyon just isn't the right fabric for the Luminary (it really sings in the 525!) and thus we won't be offering it in that design. The Stowaway sample in 400d Halcyon, however, found us changing our minds; we'll take a photo of the sample 400d Black Halcyon Stowaway and add it to the website as an "In Production" option by the end of this week.

    We don't have plans to make the Side Effect in Mars/Viridian, but it will be offered in the Side Kick.

    Ooh, what about a Mars/Dawn Side Effect?

    Thank you so much for letting me know, that way I wont be waiting for something that is never going to appear. SO.... do you think it is possible that the S25, say in the next color run, could be made in that color combo? (You can't blame me for trying. )

For the Luminary, the 1050 Ballistic was too stiff, and the 400 Halcyon too supple: the 525 was the “just right” fabric… the curves, the lines, the drape of the fabric — everything about it was right.

    Hey Darcy, what are the chances of seeing a Daylight Backpack in 525 Ballistic? I have the feeling that the slightly stiffer body of 525 would look great on a DLBP. The Cordura is too rough for my taste for a bag in this category and I feel like I would appreciate having just a little more durability and stiffness than the Halcyon has to offer in this design.

    Am I going to pass out holding my breath?
