    Can anyone please explain what is up with the Larabars? moriond has the answer: "Post#54 of the Double Organizer Pouch thread references the old post#56. Laerabars figured prominently in early reviews of the (original) Buzz, Brain Bag, and Super Ego by forum member @Zephyrnoid at the Imagometrics web site." Whoa!

    The links to moriond explaining "Buy ALL the bags" aren't working anymore, so here are the URLs:
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    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.
