    @Darcy ,
    Any timeline on Nik wallets, especially #4? I’ve been checking the website for about six-eight weeks and haven’t received any email notification. Hoping for island or dawn.

    Thanks much!

    Hi G42,

    Just received an email this afternoon and snagged an Island #4, ghost whale, and Island pulls. Though my Smart Alec isn’t getting much commuting time it will be nice enhancement to my EDC.

    I was going to post here to share the news about that restock but had a laptop incident and trouble logging back on here briefly. Glad you got a #4!

    Those aren't in the works yet, and I'm not sure when they will be... might be October/November/December. Our production is mostly focused on masks right now with a few bags (new run of HLTs and soon, the Shadow Guide PPB) mixed in.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

    Okay, thanks. I'll keep an eye out. I need to scale back on the bags for a bit now anyway. Also, what's a "PPB"? I'm still getting the hang of the acronyms, and I don't think I saw that on the list.

    Thanks again!

    @sturbridge has probably seen this, but here's a cool blog post describing it

    I just received a box of goodies including a Constellation Icon with the UV zippers... I don't need another Icon, but that combo was intriguing and man, it is just the happiest, cheerful colour combo. It seriously made my day Big Grin

    Also received a TSS in Acuity and I like it a lot more in person, in a bigger object, than in the small swatch I had previously received. It's sort of a light ice/powder blue.

    I’m still waiting for my order to get shipped — so any comments about Constellation/Ultraviolet Icon in 525d Ballistic Nylon vs Logic Blue/Northwest Sky Icon in 630d Recycled that I can use to keep me going until I can see this in person? Same goes for my Acuity items. Everything new in Constellation, Acuity, and the new Sitka is sitting in that order waiting to get shipped.

    I dont have the icon colors but the acuity is stunning @moriond ! Will try to grab some photos in the daylight. Not only did I get my full wishlist, it shipped the next day and then UPS came a day EARLY. All the stars aligned on this one!

    When I put the Logic and Constellation next to each other, the texture and sheen differences are obvious. The 630 recycled has a less obvious weave and the sheen looks more liquid. The Logic suddenly reminds me of anodized niobium metal (I use it sometimes in my jewelry making) and this colour is often called 'steel blue'. Its different, but closer to Parapack then the 525 ballistic.

    Of the three (ahem) Icon's I have, the Stealth Icon is waiting for secret agent missions where you need to be randomly unobtrusive - I'm sure that will happen any day now(!). I admit it - I bought it completely for the blacked-out logo; I just think it's funny and way more fun than removing a logo (no issue w/folks who do, just never seemed important to me). I'd pack it for NYC.
    The Logic/NWSky feels clean/modern/calm - A walk around Seattle in the drizzle or San Francisco mood. This was the first one I bought.
    The Constellation/UV is fairly bright for me, but like I said, it's just a really happy combo.... I would pack this if I ever get back to your lovely state of Hawaii.
    Smilie

    FWIW, I think the Acuity goes better with the Constellation than the Logic.

    At the risk of horrifying all the Sitka fans out there... the particular shade of green just doesn't do much for me. I'll return a couple of the accessories I bought and probably only keep a TSS size #1. I much prefer Wilderness, Verde, and Olive...

    ETA: the newer Sitka is, to me, a touch darker than the original.. either one, combined with Iberian, seem like Christmas colour combo

    ETA2: new Sitka is closer to original Sitka than Solaris is to Solar...but in my own records, I'm tracking nSitka vs oSitka

    ETA3: the Luminary 12 in Burnt Orange 525 ballistic (which I will keep) does remind me that for that colour, I like the sheen of the 1050 ballistic better

    They are beautiful shades of blue. I have swatches of both. I am partial to the strong shade of the constellation blue 525 ballistic but the finer weave of the logic blue 630 recycled is very pretty.

    I ordered the Icon in stealth black. What is wrong with me? Smilie

    As my signature says, I like all the blues & greys - and I still have a stealth black Icon... so whatever is wrong with you is a common malady Smilie
