    Thanks maverick for the video of your son modelling the DLBP. Looks like a good fit for him! I think my guy will enjoy his when we do receive our package. ☺

    Aubergine is still Queen, but French Blue (due in part to @maverick's DLBP posts) is creeping up there as my favorite TB bag color! Now if only it were available in ballistic for the larger bags... (Not that I need any more bags, of course!)

    Thanks for the great French Blue Daylight Backpack video and pictures with the most handsome of models!

    I was also able to catch up on your Side Effect many uses and Western Flyer water bottle fit videos, thank you so much, they are very informative and very professionally done.

    I do not know if this is even possible, but if so could one of the Forum-Allpowefulls maybe move all the bike-related posts to a dedicated Thread over at the Non-Tom-Bihn section? I would so much like to continue this conversation without steeling the thunder of the very great Daylight Backpack.

    Thanks Maverick!

    That explains why I couldn't see anything in the product shot of the rear on the website; black stitching on a black Dyneema bag likely isn't super noticeable unless you are holding the bag up close.

    In the earlier pictures of the Daylight Backpack, @taminca showed the DLBP could be slipped into the zippered back pocket that holds the backpack straps of the Tri-Star. This also works for the Western Flyer, although the fit is a little snugger

    The top of the DLBP fits more closely under the top edge of the zipper in the WF compared to the Tri-Star, but there is no problem zipping this closed, or pulling out the backpack straps and carrying either bag with the DLBP flat in the back pocket.

    You can carry the DLBP here, as well as pack it and enclose it where the large packing cube is carried, if you want to use regular packing cubes in the main compartment of WF or Tri-Star and carry this bag as an addition.

    BTW, the Vertical Freudian Slip doesn't fit the DLBP well compared to the PCBP for Tri-Star/WF because the narrower top pitches the corners. It can be carried if the DLBP is under filled, but will stress the top corners.

    @moriond Do you know if the Large DOP fits?

    Thanks, @moriond! My WF is the rolling pocket version so I could not test that scenario.

    @eWalker Since the Double Organizer pouches all seem to take their sizes from the corresponding regular Organizer pouches, I'd say that the Large DOP will fit into the DLBP if you curve the edges around at the top two corners, and put the Large DOP into the main compartment (not trying to fit it into the bottom pouch, which is already starting to narrow.)

    Here's the back side of a large clear organizer pouch in Indigo on top of the DLBP

    The old size large organizer pouch (crimson) from several years ago would fit without folding corners, and inside the bottom pocket. That pouch holds A4 paper, but not a very thick stack (e.g. 100-500 sheets, which you do with the current Large pouches)

    Thanks @moriond, that is just what I needed to know!

    I don´t intend to transport large amounts of paper on my EDC. And you just inspired me to use then also on the PCBP's that I will use as BOB!

    Thanks again!
