    Great pictures, gochicken. I will say that tactilely the Black 420d Dyneema feels more like fabric than the 420d HT Parapack nylon. In fact, it feels more like fabric than either the Steel or Nordic 420d Dyneema, with the cross-threaded Dyneema strands also feeling less prominent..

    420d HT nylon Classic Parapack Photos

    I think maybe a video is the only way to really show what the Parapack looks like, because the way the light reflects off the folds of the fabric as it moves is really what makes it distinctive compared to the ballistic or Cordura to me. My navy Synapse 19 arrived today and it's lovely, but quite different from what I was expecting (not a bad thing!)

    Here are some photos from today. The first one is a more accurate representation of the colour, but the second has a flash of solar. Neither shot really captures the way the fabric looks, though. A photog I ain't.
