    I think itís hard to fault the DLBC. Itís good value, lightweight, perfect size (for its intended use) and simply very very practical.

    I use a black halcyon one at the moment but just bought a Cloud/Dawn Ballistic one as Iím hoping the slightly thicker ballistic makes it a little more structured.

    I donít use it for every day use, just as a travel bag. Wondering how well the zips would hold up to repetitive use very day as that seems to be its weak spot.

    I agreed. DLBC is indeed very good value.

    I had only one - Grey Cordura, really like its Grey. Not too dark, not too light. I find Cloud too bright, in my opinion.

    My DLBC's zipper and overall still holding up, everyday use since I got it. Traded. It is definitely more than 1 year or coming 2 year.

    For the zipper, I prefer DLBC's zipper. I understand that the Stowaway has waterproof/water-resistant Zipper but it is hard to operate and required two hands most of the time. The DLBC, although lack of these premium features - simply, silky and smooth. Able to zip close and open with one single hand and with ease.

    I would love to get Canyon DLBC but I didn't have the chance, as I had bought the Stowaway. Nonetheless, I am looking out for a Black/Viridian DLBC. Hopefully, this combo will be available - as it is available for Brain Bag.

    Grey is my colour so the Steel Ballistic, Grey Cordura and Cloud Ballistic make up a lot of my collection.

    Grey cordura is the right Ďshadeí in my opinion but I do prefer the ballistic fabrics in general (especially the newer lighter weight 525).

    I think the viridian is a fantastic internal colour, and in my upcoming order, Iíve got a cloud/viridian Side Kick. A black/viridian would be even more impactful I imagine.

    Cloud/Viridian - never thought of that. I think it will be a great combo for SCB too.

    525 Black is really a deep black, quite matte yet there is a bit sheen to it like any other 525 fabric. It is hard to word out. But I got the chance to see it in the Showroom few months ago. Like you said, impactful is the right word - how extraordinary 525 Black looks, not the usual blacky black.
