Any Changes coming for the Brain Bag?
I like everybody here have a serious addiction to Tom Bihn bags. Love them. I have 3 currently. Qty (1) Syanpse 19 in Olive/Steel , Qty (1) Synapse 25 in Steel Dynema, Qty (1) Ego in Black / Cayenne. I would like to get a Brain bag. However Most of the colors are not what I like, and not too many variations.
Any chance the Brain Bag will have any changes in design or colors in the near future. Would love to have an Brain Bag in Black with a bright color on the inside, like cayenne, iberian, or maybe solar.
Again Tom Bihn, keep up the good work.
Thanks for listening.

The biggest recent change to the BB is that it now comes in 420d Parapack nylon instead of 1000d Cordura. Because Parapack is so new, there are only limited colors available; thus, I can't speak to the exterior fabrics, although I do believe that Black is readily available.
I have to say I'm not sure that the BB has ever been offered with a Dyneema lining, ruling out Iberian and Solar. Sadly, Cayenne Cordura has been retired. If I'm not mistaken, BBs of yore had 500d Cordura linings that matched the exterior, perhaps with some Steel for contrast? I speculate that a brightly-colored interior for the BB may not be on the horizon.

Because there are two compartments to the Brain Bag, it's literally like two bags stacked together. That's why parapack is used even in the interior- not the regular Dyneema. The "interior parapack" literally acts as the 'external wall' for the first 'bag'! I guess the 400d Dyneema could be used, but for some reason isn't- maybe because it's not as rigid, which is needed in the interior of a bag like this.
So I'm guessing adding more colours is not happening so soon...
