    Smile Navy/Iberian Love

    So, my Navy/Iberian family has been expanding rapidly as of late, and yes, I owe you all some family pics :)

    The first N/I family member was the Tri Star...then the Aeronaut. Later last year, an N/I Synapse came to join her Black/UV Synapse sister. I use the N/I Synapse daily, it houses my novel-in-progress.

    Then, late late in 2012, I was thrilled when a N/I Smart Alec made its way to the family.

    But, 2013 may be THE year of Navy/Iberian! With great excitement, the Swift was offered in this combo! (She's here!) Then the Co-Pilot! Eeek! To my great excitement, he just arrived last week! (Yes, they all have genders.) And now, tonight, I see the Western Flyer can be pre-ordered in N/I! Ufda! Egads! Hurray!! (run and hide, little credit card)

    I think Tom and crew have me figured out: If they build it in Navy/Iberian, it will come...to my house :)

    Thanks, TB Crew!

    @Tlacltme, congratulations on your Navy/Iberian TB collection. I, too, love N/I - but the only piece I have in this color combination is the Aeronaut. That's because, except for the Tristar, the N/I combination was not an option when I bought my bags.

    I wish that TB make bags in nordic dyneema/iberian combination. The combination will be close to my favorite Navy/Iberian, but with the lighter weight advantage of the dyneema material.

    Darcy, the tip that the new side effect will be available in N/I is exciting. My wish list keeps getting longer.

    yay - I've just ordered a Navy/Iberian Synapse ... just couldn't bring myself to go past it for the weight advantages of the dyneema only bag. A matching side effect would be perfect.
    List under construction ....

    Now if only they'd pair Nordic with Iberian, we'd have a very similar color combination and the lower weight! :)

    You are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE it! My N/I Synapse sees the most use of all my N/I stuff and it literally brings a smile to my face EVERY day...

    Nordic/Iberian would be very nice but I gotta say, the ballistic Navy is SOOO beautiful. There's a luster to it that cannot be captured in photos. I LOVE it!

    I have three items of iberian in my order - also a shop bag in Nordic so soon I'll get to see Nordic in the 'flesh'

    The cordura was also a factor in selecting this particular synapse .. I quite like ballistic nylon and dyneema but my fav. fabric is still cordura - my first tom bihn bag was my original plum ristretto. I lugged that thing all over europe for 8 weeks and it still looks like new.
