    Tuskegee7294, HOW did you get 3 dresses into the packing cube, and how do you deal with wrinkles? All the packable dresses I find seem to be rayon, which wrinkles as soon as you look at it.

    They are light-weight dresses and although they do wrinkle I just iron them at the hotel. I can pack my other sundresses which donít wrinkle but they donít have pockets lol.

    Sorry, I'm only just catching up! How does 525 ballistic compare to parapack and halcyon? I LOVE halcyon's light weight, and silky-but-toughness. I did try a Parental Unit in 1050 ballistic and I'm sorry, I REALLY disliked it. It was stiff and unforgiving and rough. I returned it.

    I don't like black or very dark blue (they really heat up in the sun, not that we see much of that here in SW PA), and am interested in other colors, like nebulous grey and deep blue, esp. with Iberian ! Will you eventually have other halcyon or parapack colors, or will you be focusing primarily on ballistic?

    Pockets are a must. They wouldn't THINK of making men's pants without pockets, why do they leave them off women's clothes?

    I would recommend asking TB customer service for a few fabric samples so you can compare them! You might also find it helpful to look around the Forums here for discussions about the two fabrics, for example @tpnl's post comparing them.
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian.

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    I donít have anything in parapack, but I have bags in all the other fabrics. I find the 525 to be a nice middle ground. Itís more structured than the halcyon but more flexible than the 1050 ballistic. I have an S25 in the in the deep blue / Iberian combo and have been really happy with that bag. I think you would enjoy it unless you plan to really stuff it full regularly, in which case the halcyon becomes a bit more packable.

    Same situation and very happy with 525 ballistic exterior for everyday bags for a bit some structure/rigidity than halcyon, but still good flexibility compared to 1050 ballistic.

    Interested though to hear what are people’s views on halcyon vs 210 ballistic for interior material?

    Note that the exterior halcyon is 400d vs the interior material is 200d.

    The 200d halcyon and 210d ballistic are similar... There's some subtle differences in the 'hand' of the materials by colour (due to the finishing process) that @Darcy elaborated on elsewhere, but they're reasonably functionally equivalent as bag liners.
    The halcyon has the woven grid pattern that the ballistics don't, so that's the most obvious visual difference.

    If you haven't had time to yet, check out the Material Glossary for more technical details
    https://www.tombihn.com/pages/materials

    For interiors, you're mostly picking based on colour (what you like) and whether or not you prefer a dark or light interior. Some folks don't like the darker interior colours as they find it harder to find things/see inside.

    I like both materials... since the 210d ballistics are newer to TB, some of the excitement about them is the newness factor and the solid colour appearance vs the grid lines... the disco'd halcyon's are still my favorites (original Nordic, Fjord, Zest, Monarch, Solar, Steel, etc) but I do love Dawn

    Thanks. I had overlooked that the halcyon was different for interior and exterior. So far I have chosen my Tom Bihn bags based on exterior material and colour, and some have halcyon and others ballistic interiors. So just, until now, really accepted the fact. But now with some interesting Synik pre order combinations, just refreshing my ideas. My favourite remains wasabi halcyon for the light interior colour and easy to find bag contents.

    I noticed this was given in response to a question regarding pre-order color options.

    Does this mean other colors and color combos will be available in the future? Cloud, perhaps?

    They do rotate some other color combinations in later, but in general, the widest range of color offerings are seen in the preorder offerings, and based on the initial response to this, they refine the offerings in the next few production batches. This is one of the reasons forum members are so interested in seeing the initial color combinations.
