    *Oooh* *Aaah*

    Such a lovely combination! I'd love a Steel(?Ballistic?Cordura)/UV Pilot ;D and someday a S25. My perfect travel dream team.

    Peace!

    IMO Ultraviolet would make an awesome exterior color too. I know an Ultraviolet SE would be a "must have" for my collection. If the heavier Dyneema bags also become available in ultraviolet,my credit card will definitely take a hit. Ultraviolet would go perfectly with my Plum, Aubergine, and navy....
    Lots of assorted purples, some blues, and a bit of black: 2S19, 5SE, 2WF, MCB, SCB, Imago, 2S, LS, TT, K, 2QC, 5 3D, 4WFSBPC, 2WFBPPC, FJNB, 4Wallets, 4LSB, 2SSB, DLBP, Pilot, Assorted sacks, packing cubes, organizer pouches, key straps :-)

    So TXGirl, you have it, you've flashed it for all of our wonder, what are your thoughts on it? Does it meet your expectations for the purposes you bought it for? How do your items fit in? Is it comfortable to carry? Spill it!
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    dorayme, your pics sealed the deal in making my decision on what size to get so I personally thank you for that :)

    I haven't used it yet other than just walking around the house with it on, but so far I love the way it fits. I can't recall if the shoulder straps were redesigned or if it's just the way the S25 sits on me, but it feels so much better than how the S19 straps fit. With the S19, it felt like the straps were too wide & always trying slip into my armpits. I would always have to pull the bag forward and tuck my thumbs underneath to keep them from shifting & digging. When I tried the S25 on, I noticed immediately I didnt have that issue.

    I have two trips coming up this month and it will be my travel bag so I'll report back then. I already know though I'm going to love it!
