    That sounds awesome! And congrats on the NG/ Dawn Synic. Smilie

    You can also ask Customer Service for fabric swatches if you are interested in a specific color.

    I also don’t mind my packing cubes matching, I never had a problem with it because I only have three TB cubes anyway and each of those has a dedicated space in the bag if I take them all (and they are three different sizes). Depending on the bag I also use an old Eagle Creek Cube I still have and some Sea to Summit stuff sacks (to keep my shoes separate for example).

    Halcyon or Ballistic for internal organization?

    I think the internal halcyon material is smoother and in some places has a coating that both protects it and makes it easy to slide accessories into.

    I have been debating material choice for these items with myself for weeks. I realize this question is really late, but I really thought I would come to my own conclusion reading the available FAQs and forum posts.

    Do I want Halcyon or Ballistic for internal organization?

    I havenít seen either material in person and will not be able to prior to ordering.

    The weight difference is practically negligible for my expected use cases.

    I think I like the look of Ballistic better, but it sounds like Halcyon may be slightly more practical (stretches more, slides in easier and easier to access/pack, while also being slightly lighter) but I really donít know having not handled either material.

    Could anyone offer advice to sway me in either direction?
    I have several bags with Halcyon and although itís less structured and more flexible in movement, it is definitely not stretchy.

    Agreed! NG / Dawn is a fantastic combination.

    I picked up a Synik30 in this combo during the pre-order, just because I knew I'd kick myself if I missed out on it. (Sure enough, the subsequent run offers only Halcyon interiors.)

    While I love Halcyon and find it incredibly versatile and functional, sometimes it is nice to have a sold color. Hope the Dawn 210 proves to be as resilient and robust as Halcyon as a liner.

    Anyway, here's another photo of the Nebulous / Dawn combo (which strikes me as one of the more pleasing and elegant pairings in the lineup).

    Hope you are enjoying yours!

    I hope so! How well I feel about my decision varies from day to day.

    I’ve heard that a few times, I’ll just have to see how well the ballistic interior works for me.

    The combination really does look fantastic!

    I will not know if it works for me for another two months, best case. I do not live in the US, the bag will be delivered by someone traveling there. All I know at the moment is that UPS say they left the package at the “front door” two weeks ago.
