    I think these might be from returns? Or they have two stocks: one for internet-shoping and one for the store.

    Anyway: that is great news, congratulations for this catch!

    I think that once they only have one or two of something, they must take it off the website to avoid too many phone calls saying that they are actually out of something that was listed as in stock. THAT is why we must all go and visit the actual store to see all the secret goodies! Let's go, guys!!

Now I do not have to worry about that anymore.

    For now there are just four options in nordic left:

    1. Medium Cafe Bag
    2. Large Cafe Bag
    3. Co-Pilot
    4. Swift
    5. Synapse 19

    I know it is somewhat shallow to swoon about a color but I just can't help it.


    Edit1: put in the Synapse I overlooked and that moriond kindly pointed out.
    I was in the store today. There is ONE PCSB in Nordic 400 in the store. As well as one black dyneema one. It killed me to leave the black one behind. I suspect you could call if you wanted it. :) Ask for Matthew.

    Thanks you for your willingness to share. I think they are closed for business since it is nearly 9pm at Seattle. Hopefully, they would read my email first before it was offered to someone else .

    Phew~ Luckily still available.

    Hanah, the Bag Guru who responded my email inquiry was happy to help me hold on for 2 weeks - maximum.
    I am still wondering whether to use USA Address Service like Comgateway to forward such small purchase to my sister at Singapore about USD25 (Include TB's USA Shipping)
    ,or add few more stuff and direct ship to my home country. Shall I choose the second, I will definitely be grounded, sleeping on living room for the whole month. :(

    Anyway, just saying, shall anyone living in Singapore would not mind me to join their Order Check-Out, I wouldn't mind paying a portion of the flat Shipping Fee USD45 - reasonable USD15.

    Thanks,

    Now it is official: No more Nordic in the shop. Did not check yesterday but the day before there was still an brave Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack holding up the Nordic-Touch.
    As oooh_shiny was kind enough to share, there might be some secretive Nordic items left in the Store in Seattle but only the inquiry mind will be able to lure them out of their hiding.

    For all of you without Nordic but in want of some: Do not loose hope! There are some items from time to time in the bag-swap or ebay threats.

    For all of you who own and love Nordic: you are the keeper of a line that will no longer expand (or that is what we know so far... there is ALWAYS hope!). So here are some advice:

    1. Give your Nordic a good dose of fresh air as often as you can. It needs to be used so it can fulfill its purpose in live.
    2. Feed it with all your best gear and belongings: it can handle the responsibility and will take care of you goodies with pride.
    3. Do not leave it behind anywhere: It is so good in finding friends, that it wont be there for you to reclaim it. NEVER EVER FORGET YOUR BAG
    4. Let it play with the other colored bags: It loves ALL of them because it is a true cosmopolitan.
    5. Be careful whom you lent it to, see point 3. for explanations.
    6. HAVE FUN WITH IT

    So, as a watcher of the availability of Nordic I am out of a job now. Darcy, do you read me? Will this be forever?? Cant I get you to run a pity-round of Nordic???

    Well... here you see me with hunched shoulders and dragging feet slowly moving away from this thread... I am off, taking out my Nordic-Collection and let it do the cheering-up.

    (A long) Sigh~~~~~~~~~~
    Well, we all can relate to what's life is about. You never know something better, may came out from the corner.

    I also wish to point out my honesty that this is one of the main reason I dislike TB - the retirement of those divine/wonderful colour include Solar.
    But I understand the reason behind it. I believe Darcy did pointed out many times.
