    You guys should start a UK Bihnion meet-up (yes, it's a big country, but it would be cool if it worked out)... I saw that @maverick and @perseffect had a meet-up

    Itís a lovely colour combo and Iím super excited to get mine next Wednesday.

    Between a WF for lightweight trips and the Tristar for functional (ie work equipment) trips. Iím well covered.

    In the end I didnít go ahead with an A45 in Steel/Island as I had just found a nearly new Navy/NWS. That rounds out the collection for family trips. And I think the Navy/NWS complements the Grey - Blue colour scheme going on anyway.

    P.S. I really like the Navy/NWS but it seems to be less favoured to Navy/Wasabi or Navy/Green or Navy/Iberian. Hopefully the Navy/NWS or Navy/Cloud makes it to more bags.

    Greetings,
    I'm right beside you with the no will power. It's so hard to resist sometimes.

    I'm replacing my original black dynema bags (S25, A30, DLBP, SK, SE) with more colorful options. The steel island combo really appeals to me, so I'm watching for it.

    I just ordered a TC and noticed the Side Kick was available in Steel. Yay. But I can't join the club yet because the interior is ultraviolet. I was weak and we know resistance is futile. I'm certain that I'll love it, as I'm very pleased with that as a liner color. One of the other options will allow me to join the club. elisa

    You can join the Club by open appreciation of the gloriousness that is Steel/Island (or Steel/Fjord, or Steel/Viridian...strong points for Cloud/Island, Viridian, Navy/NWSky, etc... and maybe soon to be joined by Nebulous/Island!!!.... and, and, and...)
    :)
    Basically, there's a strong grey/blue bias going on over here and you are welcome to come wallow in it

    Those of you with the Steel/Island Western Flyer, how do you like that bag in that fabric? I'm a little tempted because of the colors, but I like my Halcyon WF so much I'm not sure I'd like it in 1080 ballistic or if I'd think it was too stiff. (Cloud/Island, though...)

    There have been posts around the Forums about how the fabrics changing over time if you google around...

    I just received my WF and it is stiff, like all the new 1050 items are... I had previously test packed both a TriStar and WF in the 1050 ballistics and sent them back partly because of how stiff they felt...
    Then I bought a Black/Solar TriStar off of Ebay (because, SOLAR) and as it was several years old, the ballistic had completely softened up and become much more supple.

    Since I had that experience, I had no qualms getting a new 1050 ballistic WF, as I know that it will soften up over time.

    I doubt they'll put Cloud into the WF...they seem to be using the 1050 for all the larger bags... Steel is the 1050 grey with Cloud & Nebulous in the 525...

    HTH

    Thanks! I know there are posts, but I also know that if I started looking for them I'd get sidetracked by a lot of other interesting posts and I'd get sucked into reading them for the next five hours. So I hoped someone would be willing to take the time to answer here. Thank you! :-)

    It arrived. And itís awesome!



    And itís got tie down straps which I didnít know when I ordered it. An extra bonus as I missed having them in the larger Tristar.



    And for @G42 who asked how Steel/Island compared to Navy/NWS.



    Wishing the Navy/NWS was available in more items as it also is a fantastic colour combination.
