    These photos are tremendously helpful, not to mention majorly tempting. The colors are all so much fun but I immediately fell for Dawn. And I want all thing to be made of Dawn. Haha. Or perhaps my wallet is glad that everything does NOT come in Dawn. Either way, I ordered a Cubelet, to make sure I love it in person, and will also likely order shop bags in all the new colors when they're available, because shop bags are my jam. :)

    The debut was exciting and I can't wait to receive my hat, hopefully in time for my next trip in mid-July. If I were still traveling weekly for work I would be dying for the Stowaway, but I think I'll wait on that. The Luminary is sorely tempting so I'm considering it, but I'm also considering a new S25 in one of the new colors so....

    Ilkyway - I don't know if you answered this elsewhere but I just noticed there was an Aubergine swatch in the pic for the new 525 ballistic colors. Was there/is there a 525 Aubergine? Just curious.

    @harraya,
    This isn't @Ilkyway, but I can answer that the Aubergine swatch was 1050d Ballistic Nylon. (The better to make color comparisons for all of us Aubergine fans)

    Is anyone able to comment on the weight and 'stuffability' of the ballistic shop bags compared to the halcyon ones? (By stuffability, I mean inside other pouches such as cubelets or stuff sacks).

    Thanks!

    I emailed to ask about weight and was told that although the 210 ballistic weighs slightly more than halcyon, the difference is insignificant at the size of a Shop Bag; they weigh basically the same.

    I can't comment on stuffability since I don't have one of the new Shop Bags, so I hope someone else will chime in for that--I'm curious too.

    Yeah, that makes sense. My only LSB (for now) is in nordic, which I'm guessing weighs slightly more than the 200d bags anyway.
