    Companion backpack with shoulder bag (PU or NF)?

    @kemote ; Sure thing! Ursa actually happened by accident. Before Tom Bihn stopped production on bags to begin making face masks full-time, I wanted to get a new S19 with the edgeless straps before they ran out of stock. My first choice was Coyote, but the color had sold out. Still wanting an earth tone, there was one left in Ursa and I decided to take the chance. Itís darker than you would think (or at least darker than Chocolate Cordura was, IMO). Iíll try and get a few pictures once Iím back home tonight. Really pleased to see they have added tan and brown colors back into the line - nice to have neutral color options which arenít black or gray!

    You can also request Customer Service to send you a small swatch for free of the fabric/color you want to see....its usually about 2" square so you get an idea of colour and sheen to go with the action photos that folks upload.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    I have a Monster Truck in Ursa but every product can look so different using the same material/color so I was mostly just curious what this DLBP looks like in Ursa.

    @kemote ; Below is a picture of the Ursa 525 DLBP.

    One is in natural light:



    The other was taken with a flash:



    And the third picture (using a camera flash) is to juxtapose the color of Ursa 525 against Coyote 1050 and Navy 1050.



    Hope this helps persuade you one way or another!

    Right, that settles it. My next bag is going to be Ursa. Not sure when that's going to be, but it's definitely going to be Ursa.

    @Skirata44 ; Iíve also got an Ursa Synapse 19, if you need further persuasion. If you donít? Well then it looks like the roster for Team Ursa just grew by one more member.

    Technically I think I'm already a member-does having an Ursa ghost whale qualify me for Team Ursa?

    @Skirata44 ; Yep. Totally counts. Did you order the Ursa GW intentionally to audition the color? Or did it just grow on you enough you wanted a larger bag made from the same color fabric? I thought you also mentioned owning an Ursa Monster Truck, but I donít know where the chicken falls in relation to the egg on this one.

    No, that must've been someone else-my main 3 bags are a Synapse, Pilot and HLT. Not really sure what I'd do with a monster truck, to be honest-these days my needs are geared more towards school/work (I'm a teacher aide) and travel.
