    New packing cube shoulder bags

    Just got my nordic and black packing cube shoulder bags, made out of the thicker-weight dyneema. I like them quite a bit. This picture may not be the best reproduction of the colors, but I will try to do one in natural light later. From the top down: UV (200D, which I already owned), and nordic and black (both 400D, new).

    I have always liked these cubes for packing, because the colors are helpful in differentiating one from another. However, I never really used it as a shoulder bag. I could see doing this with the black or nordic, though. They have a tiny bit more structure and I like the look!

    They may be gone now. I believe this was a temporary run.

    edit: Actually, they still seem to be in stock!

    Perhaps they are not labeled that way, but the Nordic and Black ones should be 400d.

    Nice! I have a black one in the order that's slowly wending its way from Seattle to the UK via USPS, so it should be here in about a week's time. I'm thinking it will make an ideal seat-back bag for my upcoming long-haul flight - not too big and not too small.
    Collections:
    black/aubergine + wasabi (WF, SA + UMP, CP, TT, TSSs, SE, Swift, QK, YSSs & KTPs)
    forest/cork/linen + steel/olive (Imago, Pilot, SCB, COW, QK, OPs)
    olive/plum + steel/UV/wasabi (S19, SE, MCB, TSSs, SSBs, YSSs, LSS, OPs)
    black/steel + iberian (SE, SCB, FJN, TSSs, YSSs)
    On their way: DLBP, 3DFOCs, another YSS!
    Hoping for: FJN for iPad Mini; more bags in Aubergine; the return of Portable Culture!

    I just noticed that the PCSB page no longer has options for Nordic or Black dyneema! I'm sure glad that I pre ordered the Nordic one! Also glad I got paranoid and ordered the Black a few days ago...whew...crisis averted!!

    No… this was a one time thing. Because it's a Packing Cube, we think it makes more sense to make it out of the lighter 200d Dyneema/nylon in general. But, we knew, even considering that, that some folks would want Nordic or Black anyway, and with the great 2014 Dyneema/nylon shortage, thought we'd make a run of them just this one time. Maybe someday we'll make a 400d Dyneema/nylon messenger/shoulder bag.

    May I point out the the Packing Cube Backpacks in 400d Nordic Dyneema for the Aeronaut are still currently available for order, if you act now? That's probably because they are still listed on back order, and nobody has received and posted a picture yet. Usually, once you wait that long, a wave of orders immediately follows the posted picture, and that clears out the stock. The Nordic packing cube shoulder bags were still available for order for some hours after @bchaplin posted the product link in this thread.

    I'm only mentioning this because that's the other item you expressed interest in. The PCBP in Nordic Dyneema for the Tri-Star/Western Flyer can also still currently be ordered.
