    Synapse in Cardinal Red

    Any chance of a Synapse being made in Cardinal? It would be the perfect way to get my navy synapse back from my wife!

    Does the Iberian/Steel Dyneema color look similar to Cardinal?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but the Iberian doesn't work for me as an external colour for a whole bag. The red is not as nice as Cardinal appears, plus the white stripes change it dramatically.

    And I've managed to answer my own question by noticing that the Synapse is made from the wrong fabric so a cardinal version is extremely unlikely.

    Now leaning towards black/ultraviolet for my lovely wife.

    I think the Synapse would be lovely in Cardinal, too. Who knows? The Synapse is made from ballistic nylon, and isn't that what the Cardinal is made of as well? So maybe we can still hope.

    Hi ncb4

    The Synapse is only made of Cordura.

    "Exterior of 1000 denier U.S. Cordura, lined with ultra-lightweight yet abrasian-resistant Dyneema/nylon rip-stop fabric made for us in Japan

    Back panel with exterior of Dri-Lex Aero-Spacer mesh and U.S. 1050 denier ballistic nylon; padded with 1/4" (6mm), high quality, closed-cell foam."

    Thanks for the heads-up, TXGirl; I don't know why, but even though I've just been reading and re-reading the Synapse page with an eye to ordering one myself, my mind keeps skipping over the "Cordura" and thinking the backpack is made of ballistic nylon. Maybe it's the way the Synapse seems to glow in the pictures; can't believe that's "just" Cordura.
