    @Darcy, are the Synapse 25's reversed zipper or right-side out (teeth showing)? When are they changing that?

    I think I know the answer to this (no), but is there a possibility of the Synapse 25 coming back in Parapack? That with rightside-out zippers (teeth showing) would be ideal for me. Or dyneema with rightside-out zippers too! @Darcy do you have any info on that?

    Thanks, Darcy! No Aubergine but I am very intrigued by Forest/Steel and was just bemoaning not having any Navy/Solar bags... So terrific news, indeed!

    That's a good question!

    :-)

    My Tom Bihn psychic meter would tend to say the bluish hue.
    (That and the fact that the most recent "bag" that I received about 7 weeks ago was a bluish steel Tristar)

    Was hoping for a Pilot in Black Dyneema/Solar Any chance @Darcy that this color way will find its way back into future restocks of the Pilot?

    Did you received a warning email? I signed up the list but got my "set-go" from Twitter.

    @djknyc I've only ever seen the color combination of Black 400d Dyneema/Solar offered for Cafe Bags in the last couple of months, although there have been some Blaxk Ballistic Nylon / Solar bag combinations, such as for the Synapse and Aeronaut. The black 400d Dyneema Pilots have only ever been offered paired with Wasabi. Note that Solar is being retired (see this recent post:

    200d Dyneema/nylon? Only Solar is retiring. That means Iberian, Ultraviolet, Steel, and Wasabi are here to stay, at least for now.

    Nope, haven't seen an email yet, but then Darcy only announced it here a few hours ago (I actually saw it on the product page first, as I went and looked after seeing an earlier post hinting that a forest batch was imminent). I do follow TB on Twitter, but I follow lots of more loquacious folks as well so I often miss TB's tweets.
