    For all the steel fans out there, it looks like the steel dyneema pilots are back in stock...if anyone is missing one in their collections. ;)

    I would imagine they are 400d, but I am not certain.

    j/k

    So I see these Steel dyneema Pilots back in stock. Very tempting! Might be one of the last chances for a while to get a non-black 400d dyneema bag (though I kind of wish for some interior colour other than more steel).

    If I have a standing back order, can I just email Customer service to add something? Or should I try buying it again to "reserve" mine and have them combine the orders?

    Email the shipping department and tell them to add the bag to your back-order (if you can wait!).

    Thanks! Maybe I should sleep on it... if I buy a black ballistic Pilot instead, perhaps wife won't notice it replace my black Co-Pilot... ;)

    You know you want one...hee hee. But Perhaps you will be just as happy with a black substitute.

    Just the name Steely McSteelpants is awesome! I'm ready to join the club. Got my steel Dyneema/ solar S19 and steel Dyneema WF; when my steel/steel NFTD comes tomorrow, I'll have to take a family portrait. Can't wait!!!

    I've asked them to add it to my order. Was low on will power last night. It is now a rather steely order with a steel/UV A30 for the wife (hence the backorder).

    Steel over black because there is less contrast between the white threads and the dyed fabric, so in effecct, the steel dyneema blends in a bit more. The black dyneema has a greater contrast between the white dyneema threads and the dyed 420d, so to some eyes it pops more, and is thus a little less subtle (which is an unusual thing to say about black).

    It's entirely up to your own tastes. Both and undoubtedly lovely, like all of Tom's materials choices, but for myself, in theory I think I want something a little more subtle since this will be both my EDC work/laptop bag, and a travel/camera bag.

    I think the white pops out more on black. Sometimes, the black lends itself to looking formal IMO. Steel Dyneema is more subtle, refined; a sage traveler who can pass for a local.

    Steel is more like a compliment or a nice question where black is more like a statement or an order (both dyneema here).

    All this talk about steel dyneema. I have to find a bag (not an assesorie) in steel now that I have given my only steel backpack away... of to looking at the shop.

    Only two choices available today: Pilot or Medium Cafe Bag. The MCB isn't seemingly the right size for my needs; a little too thin for me to drop a camera insert in there comfortably.

    It is something similar here: I have a Pilot in Ballistic and for me that is the ideal bag-material combo and steel/Wasabi... I can not get my head around that jet.
