    I am wondering why most accessories (Travel Tray, Travel Stuff Sack, Travel Laundry Stuff Sack, Clear Quarter Packing Cube, etc.) do not come in black Halcyon. Since I own a Side Effect in black Halcyon I absolutely love this color/material combination for its elegance... Please make some more, I'd buy them all Cool

    Yes, but not with the zip-off top section.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea!

    I was looking at my goes everywhere, help with everything, FJN, tonight, while fishing for a pencil in its front pocket, to hand to my husband.

    I just finished my daily journaling and placed the page on top of my open, other FJN.

    An FJN, made of EDC Ballistic, would bring its bright colors and smoothness together, the accessory utmost versatility as the ultimate minimalist briefcase.

    I am hoping it is possible since the SK has been made of EDC Ballistic exterior, the inner fabric of the FJN is always Black Parapack to help keep its portable Field Notebook shape, which is handy when rooms have no desks.

    What do the several feel like to the touch? Are they all smooth? How would you compare them?
    The 1025 has the largest filament/thread size, so when you run your finger over it, you can feel a weave. With the 525, I feel less of the weave, but can still tell its there. With the 200, I do not feel a weave at all, it feels like a smooth fabric to me, similar to how parapack feels. All of the fabrics feel smooth, in the sense that your finger glides on the surface and doesn't get tripped up, doesn't feel rough.
    Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is a PickUp Truck and Everyday Cubelet. Love all my shop bags, ghost whales, cubelets. Hoping to travel again soon to use my A30 and co-pilot.

    Well, I can't say why Tom Bihn doesn't make them, but I can tell you why I wouldn't necessarily buy them. A bright liner/organizer is like someone turned a light one. You can see everything.

    So, maybe this is a stupid question, but what's the advantage in each direction? Is the 525d nylon as strong as the 1025d?

    The return of Dawn as a permanent color.

    Or Monarch (or another orange color).

    The thinner the fabric, the lighter weight and more flexible the fabric. Luggage you want thicker, linings and pouches thinner.

    My 2018 wish is to bring Fjord back to accessories!! I keep seeing it in old photos from Google and it's SO beautiful. I've been watching Ebay to see if I can snag something, anything!

    Ditto on Fjord, and while we're at it, can we get more Sitka, because THAT was an amazing color. Maybe swap out Grass for Sitka? Smilie

    Since we have a color request theme going, I'd love the return of Solar and Zest and Sapphire (it can be a limited run of Solar, Zest, Sapphire, Sitka, and Fjord Big Grin ), just long enough so that the fans of the colors can buy keystraps, yarn stuff sacks, organizer pouches, and travel trays of those glorious colors!

    (The key straps can be the awesome material they use now, the non-Halcyon one, with the listed colors of the past!)

    I have a Fjord travel tray and it's definitely a beautiful color! I would also vote for Dawn to stay. I haven't seen it in real life, but it looks beautiful in pictures. In general I would love to have more color choice when it comes to slightly muted and cool colors. There's a lot of brights and warm colors, but not really much choice for someone who prefers something more neutral and less loud. Always going for black, navy and grey is kind of boring. But those are the only colors that go well with my wardrobe.
