    Missing Halycon Options

    I understand that black is the most popular color for backpacks. However, that is exactly why I want something other than black. I sure miss having the option for a halycon color other than black. I don't really want anything wild - just non-black. I ordered a Synik in parapack - but am not sure I love either the material or the color (steel). Maybe we will see a halycon color other than black soon - I am sure ready for us to see a replacement.

    New halcyon colors have been confirmed to be on the way, but the colors and timing have not been revealed.

    I don't know that we've heard about 400d halcyon for heavy duty exteriors vs the 200d interior and lightweight exterior.
    Soon we'll just be down to black 400d I believe.

    Yes, I think there will be new 200d lining colors. I would love a new Halcyon exterior. I'm still sad that Original Halcyon is going away...

    I completely agree.

    I really like the Synik form factor; it is clearly an evolution of the Synapse and that is a great thing. I got the Synik 22 in Black 400 halcyon since it was the only halcyon color available. When I went to buy the Synik 30 I started with Navy parapack but I did not like it enough so I settled on Steel parapack.

    I like Steel more than Navy but I don't like any of these colors as much as Original Halycon.

    It is funny that you finally settled on steel. I actually have a steel Synik on hand right now - but am just not in love with the color. I think I may have to just settle on ballistic for now.

    I agree with missing other exterior halcyon colors, but what I miss most is that the black halcyon exterior seems to be 90% northwest sky. I have no problem with black halcyon but lets have more interior halcyon colors too.

    My feeling is that the interior Halcyon color situation is going to change once the new Halcyon colors debut next year 2020. Letís hope anyway.

    Has there been an anouncement yet about the very last batches of Original Halcyon? I would love if there was at least one run of Original Halcyon paired with the new colors next year. I like the pairings with Wasabi best at the moment, but it's far from my favourite color.

    Halcyon colors are what convinced me to finally buy a TB bag. So glad I did. Still love my original halcyon bags the best.

    I wrote customer service and asked. Matthew told me that they still have some Original Halcyon left, so it hasn't been the last run yet. No idea about it being used with the new interiors, though. He's going to pass the suggestion on.
