    got to agree here, as much i want Sitka AND Fjord(Island, Nordic, and every other blue in existence) to be added Wasabi as an interior is just amazing (Iberian and Solar are a bit too extreme to the eyes but nevertheless beautiful)

    Fever39 I am crazy about blues too and maybe someof you have noticed that I have a little thing for Nordic. But to me that is an outside color.
    I am so happy with Sky as an inside option now. Calm but bright in a way.

    this image alone has me thinking that the interior/exterior arrangement would be so perfect like this.. Sitka on the outside, Wasabi on the inside... Fjord on the outside, Island on the inside... and Monarch on the outside with Iberian on the inside... ya'll get what i am saying >_>

    My Fjord Packing Cube Shoulder Bag arrived last night :).
    Here shown next to Island Stuff Sack. The Monarch pouch really pops against the Fjord! In real life the colors are more saturated, they look a bit washed out due to our California sunlight I guess.

    (I also ordered a Steel Passport Pouch before they are gone for good. That on the off chance that I also try to do some color coding for my family as someone on the forums suggested a while ago. ;))

    My TB box just arrived. (With a nice note from Tom - thanks!)

    Fjord is my Nordic. Please let it multiply into SE, SA, S25, tiny homes, soccer vests.

    Amen! (Well, actually, on the garments front I have a couple of petrol blue Dickies pants-- does that count??)

    I like Nordic a lot, but this shade of blue pushes all my buttons. My dream bag in Fjord? A Fjord exterior S19 with Steel lining. Oh, even an NWS lining would be okay...

    Oh, yes - I would get an S19 in Fjord/NWS in a heartbeat!

    I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for Sitka as an interior. I'd really love the new black Halcyon as an exterior with Sitka in a briefcase.

    The discussion of exterior v. interior colors makes me recall that brief glorious period in which Synapse 19s were offered in the Fabric Formerly Known as 200D Dyneema: there were, to the best of my knowledge, Iberian, Steel, and UV models. I don't know what the Iberian and UV models were lined with, but I have a Steel/Solar model.

    Now, I am not agitating for this right now, and since I'm pretty sure all of the limited-edition fabrics already have an intended use, it's just wishful speculation on my part. But it would be so nice to have Daylight Backpacks/Briefcases, Sprouts, and, yes, perhaps even Synapse 19s made available in 200 D Halcyon—maybe in the limited edition colors, but just in 200 D in general would be nice. I honestly don't think that any of the current limited edition colors would be bad as an interior fabric; all of them (even Fjord) have a way of catching and reflecting the light that makes them bright enough for general purposes. But can I get an amen that as exterior colors, the limited edition colors would totally shine? I have a Burnt Orange DLBP, but Monarch to me would be just as—if not more—appealing, and for the lighter bags, 200 D seems more than sufficient in terms of strength and durability.

    I would also not be opposed to a foldable, padding-free and deconstructed Smart Alec-shaped pack made from Aether fabric, but that's just crazy talk.
    S19 is UV/Steel.

    I so hope for Daylight Backpacks/Briefcases in UV, NWS and Fjord, I don't know if it is possible but I would also like them in Aether Carbon and Violet.

    I have Packing Cubes Backpacks in 200 D Dyneema, now Halcyon, I traveled extensively with the Steel for Aeronaut, I got it when they were first made because I had to face a very very very hot weather and did not want to carry anything heavier than that as a "purse". That was way before the Dyneema SCB.

    I admire your collection of Black TB Bags, thanks for posting the lineup in one post, some time ago, when the DLBC was new, it helped me realizing that it is, the one briefcase I can get from the TB collection.

    Later one, I got a Tristar PCBP and the front pocket makes it almost perfect, the Daylight Backpack is just perfect with the addition of the inner pockets and O rings so that Accessories can be added.

    But...I want it in colors and I do think the 200 D fabric weight would be enough.

    Well spelling and typing are fading fast.

    Nice picture moriond! It's hard to get pictures which accurately display the true color of the items. Your picture is darn near perfect IMO! Bravo to your lighting and photography skills.

    And thank you gochicken for your picture as well. It's wonderful to see all the different colors together for comparative purposes.

    @flips712, That was another one of @gochicken's travel tray pictures. I'm not a particularly good photographer, but I remember where to find the great pictures that other forum members have previously posted.

    Just for you, RDR3, here's a pic I just took of my Solar PCSB, in front of my new PCSBs in Fjord, Monarch, and Sitka. Enjoy!
