    Travel cubelet 210 black ballistic

    Hi. Sorry if this has already been asked and answered.

    Has the TC ever been made in the lighter black ballistic material? Will it ever be?

    I prefer the lighter 210 ballistic to the 525 and was just wondering/hoping.

    It has! It was available last November. Possibly before or since but I'm not sure about that.

    @Cristina, The question @Duggy’sMom was asking was whether the Travel Cubelet had ever been made in the 210d Black Ballistic Nylon instead of the 525d weight Black Ballistic Nylon, and whether this was a possibility for the future.

    The Travel Cubelet debuted with the 525d Black Ballistic Nylon option, and has continued to be offered in this weight, but any prospects of its being offered in 210d Black Ballistic would have to be addressed by @Darcy.

    In the early reviews we asked about the possibility of seeing the Travel Cubelet in 400d Halcyon ( in part, too, because the original Carbon Aether Pocket made the interior of the Black 525d very dark), but didn’t get a response. That’s been alleviated by the lighter color pockets. My guess would be that it might be easier for them to keep only one Black Ballistic Nylon Travel Cubelet in the rotation unless there is significant demand for the lighter weight option, and that this would be the 525d weight. But we’d really need to hear an official answer to this query

    Ack sorry for my extremely poor reading comprehension!! I must have just seen the number 525 and ignored everything else. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Thanks for clarifying moriond! Though I wish that there will be enough people asking for the lighter 210 black that they actually make them.

    Hi All! We think it's a good idea to make that switch too! We'll get some Black 210d Ballistic Travel Cubelets in the next batch.

    We just set it up so you can sign up for notification that they're available on the Travel Cublet page- we expect they'll be ready in about 4-6 weeks. We hadn't posted anything about it yet but we've got Coyote 210d Ballistic Travel Cubelets coming along at the same time

    Oh, wow, that's awesome! I signed up for both the black 210 and the Coyote. Any chance we will see an original halcyon Travel Cubelet before that fabric is retired? Please say yes.
