Wasabi DLBP colors
I know I'm new here. I've missed a lot of styles/colors over the years. But I'm wondering about a wasabi DLBP. How long ago was that color since it's not on the current list? Or is it just one of the colors that ran out or was discontinued for the DLBP?

@marytattoo, The Daylight Backpack (and Daylight Briefcase) have only ever been made in 1000d Cordura and 400d Dyneema fabric since these products were introduced (on June 30, 2014 for the DLBP and November 14, 2014 for the DLBC, respectively). Wasabi Cordura has only been used by Tom Bihn for their products in the lighter, 500d weight for the linings of bags (e.g., inside of the 3D Clear or Mesh Organizer Cubes in Cordura, earlier Brain Cell colors, Cordura linings of older Cafe Bags and classic bags like the Empire Builder, Zephyr, ID bag, Imago, Ego, Super Ego, and Checkpoint Flyer, and the Snake Charmers before the recent decision to release these in 1000d Cordura on November 5, 2014). So there are no Wasabi Daylight Backpacks because Wasabi has never been a 1000d Cordura Fabric option in this period.

These items have been popping up on eBay recently, and advertised as Daylight Backpacks. You can read the early Which type of Daylight did I just win? (eBay) for background.
Please note that current forum policy guidelines does not encourage discussion about eBay practices -- which has nothing to do with Tom Bihn's bag manufacturing, or their uses -- on the forums. Comments specifically about those topics will be moderated.
I'm going to feel dumb if I'm wrong about this, but as I recall there wasn't ever a Wasabi DLBP for sale. Tom made some for the World Domination Summit this past year and they were given to attendees. The bags lack the shingled pockets on the interior and they also have a different tag, which you can see if you search Google Images for "WDS Tom Bihn." Pretty nice piece of swag.

I've seen them on ebay and wondered. Never heard of the summit.
