    Did no-one notice?

    French blue buffs, the S19 is out in FB/Steel, along with many other combinations that have emerged from back-order.

    I just saw! I'm not waiting for French Blue but I was toying with the idea of getting an S19 and was waiting for them to come off backorder. Now to decide if I really love any of these color combos...

    And the French Blue lasted what? 2? 3 days in the menu? Good grief! I swear those things have wings! lol

    In addition, there's a Navy Cordura/UV combination as well, seem to recall someone wanted this combination.

    Have to plead guilty, @icebeng. I purchased one and asked that it be held for me for pick up when I visit the Store Friday. Am hoping that with the French Blue S19 "in hand" I might be able to resist the temptation to splurge even more. (Yeah, wish me luck with that!)

    Friday? That's the day mine's scheduled for delivery, I think we'll be getting it on the same day, just hours apart! ^.^

    I am too busy unhappily folding piles of laundry to dig it up now, but if you check the Daylight pack thread you will find @icebeng's beauuutiful pic of his French Blue S25 and DLBP next to each other. It's somewhere near the end of the thread. I think FB is especially amazing in the Synapses (less so in the BB, IMO) because with the former, you are treated to a huge swath of bright blue. Plus I imagine it must go wonderfully with Steel dyneema. Less so (but still well enough) with Steel pp, because the latter is green-tinted.

    I nearly got a FB synapse-something, but fortunately came to my senses ;_;

    You have a MCB on the way too, don't you? What's the set bonus for having a full FB collection? XD

    My FB MCB will be on the lookout for its bag sibling.

    Yep! FB MCB should arrive on Tuesday!
    Hopefully the set bonus involves immunity from institutionalization. My colleagues are starting to question my sanity, both from the number of bags I'm getting and seemingly irrational guffaw fits from reading the forums

    Yeah would be looking out too, we might be the only 2 FB owners in Singapore!

    I got "How many of those do you have?" from fellow interns re: Synapses. (Answer: Just two, but it is probably uncommon outside TB-dom to have multiple backpacks in different colours.) Super paiseh D:

    Since I'll have 3 by Friday (2 S19s and 1 S25), you could always argue that there's a crazier one in the same country! :P

    Ah thanks for pointing the picture out to me. I had even seen and liked it. Only than my focus was on the Daylighter and it's fitting into a Synapse. Sorry for that.

    Just saw that FB S19s are back in stock. Black/UV all-dyneema S19s also available! (I love this combination)
