    colour question

    I am looking at ordering the aeronaut and there is a colour listed as Steel/Solar
    Does this mean the outside is steel and the inside is solar?
    Just want to be clear...thanks

    Yup, sure does. Mine's a steel/steel, and oh, how I wish I could have gotten it in solar! The inside is a solar dyneema ripstop fabric.

    Here's a pic of the steel/solar combo in a Smart Alec, just to give you an idea:

    Is the Dyneema sapphire/white (as shown in the Yarn Stuff Sack pics) no longer available?

    That's right - it's no longer available.

    Any chances of it becoming available again? It beats Steel and Solar for the dyneema colors by a wide margin!

    Probably not Sapphire, but maybe another kind of blue - sometime in 2010.

    A bright red or orange would be awesome as well for the dyneema.

    We originally wanted to order a red Dyneema/nylon, but found that because of the white grid pattern, the red ended up looking pink. Strange but true. Orange might be a possibility someday.

    Bluedenim, here is a picture of the Aeronaut in Steel/Solar. You can also order regular and Clear Quarter packing cubes in solar. (The packing cubes in the linked Aeronaut picture are steel.)

    Interesting, Darcy... I had envisioned a red/crimson-like dyneema Shop Bag, but a Indigo-ish dyneema Shop Bag looks good in my mind also.

    Indigo/White Dyneema would be great. What's the time frame from ordering it to when the bags would be available to purchase? I'd imagine several months, but could it be just a few months?

    It depends - definitely several months. I don't see us ordering a blue Dyneema anytime soon, though.
