    Color-question: Linen vs. Night Flight deviders

    I have a tall clear Orginzer Pouch in what I think is linen cordura and now there are the deviders of the new Night Flight. Is this a special material for this purpose only or is it an other batch of linen?
    Long story short: I like that color, is there/will there a bag in it?

    I didn't get the NFTD dividers, but if they're like the IO ones, it's light silver cordura (according to IO product page) and feels a bit slippery. Linen would be darker by comparison.

    Here are the IO dividers.

    I had the NFTD dividers but returned. To me the material felt even smoother than Cordura, more like parapack, but I could be wrong as it had to stick to the Velcro on itself.

    I can't compare to linen but it is indeed a gray-green almost like the verdigris on pennies or copper fountains. But in a nice way!

    kkintea I think that is it. Thank you. I like that color and would love to see it combined with navy parapack. Just saying.

    @kkintea is correct that they used the same construction materials for dividers in the NFTD as was used for the Camera IO. @GoStanford this is the finer grade weight of Cordura, and not the 1000d associated with the exterior of Cafe Bags and Synapse Backpacks.

    Aha - thanks for pointing this out! The material did feel more delicate than the 1000d Cordura so this makes sense why that is.

    Hi GoStanford, I am interested in the NFTD. could you give us some thoughts of the NFTD dividers? why did you have it returned? Pictures would be great if you have them!

    I posted a bad picture of the divider in a separate thread on the NFTD I believe. The main reasons I returned the divider: I don't do camera photography so I don't need to carry delicate items like lenses. I would rather use the space taken by the divider in other ways. I just used the NFTD as a carry-on bag and I reallly liked having the main compartment be a single large area for boxes and snack containers or extra layers. I think, though, it is very individual dependent. Good luck with your decision! I know it is easier for me to be cavalier since return shipping is much more reasonable being domestic.

    Yeap, thank you for the insight. I found the photo with the dividers but they didn't really tell me much.Oh well . I would love to see photos of it "in action" from any NFTD owners!
