So I had finally managed to decide on the color combination and place my Pilot order (two days after everyone else) for 400d Black Dyneema/Wasabi after much agonizing about whether to order the 400d Nordic Dyneema/Solar version, and a check through of the various existing photos of the Co-Pilot in Nordic and in Black, along with a review of my existing Nordic and Black Dyneema bags, etc.
Then I went back to the Side Effect Product page that I had checked several times in the past week, and lo and behold there was an option for Nordic/Solar! Now, the first time I've seen the Nordic/Solar color combination was when the Pilot was announced on Wednesday. And this is embarrassing, because I'd commented in the thread on the Pilot colors: "Would really like to see a Nordic/Solar or Nordic/Wasabi option…" just a few days before Christmas, but hadn't noticed this new color option for the Side Effect. I swear that it only emerged in the last few days – or Darcy is just trying to check how obsessively we're reading the product pages!
Anyway, I'm really happy to see this, and of course I had to place an order. So if I end up changing the color in my Pilot order, it will be based on the direct color combo information. And, oh, I have really been wanting this color combination in the Side Effect! Yippee!! (And just letting all you other Nordic enthusiasts that this combination is available.)
