    According to Matthew I got the last Steel Dyneema Side Effect last week that had been sitting around the factory. It's lovely and I didn't realize how lucky I was to get it! Even my generally disinterested wife was sold after borrowing it for one day. Ordered a Black Ballistic version for her yesterday to use as a purse.

    I'm glad I recently purchased two large Shop Bags in the 400d Steel dyneema because I see they are now no longer available!! They are accompanying me on a beach vacation tomorrow (Outer Banks in North Carolina, y'all!!). I'm sure we will all have a wonderful time!!

    Steel Dyneema and Wasabi aren't colors that I would have put together on my own, but I have a SE in this combination and it's really, really nice. I'm rocking a Steel/Wasabi EDC right now with a Steel Cordura DLBP, Steel Dyneema/Wasabi SE with a Wasabi keystrap for a purse handle, Wasabi Cordura Snake Charmer, and Wasabi Dyneema Size 2 TSS. I didn't plan to put all this Steel and Wasabi together, but I like it!

    Weirdguy, I bought my 2 LSBs because I knew 400d steel dyneema was going away and didn't want to miss out. I had been wanting steel dyneema large Shop Bags for quite a while I knew I needed to purchase!

    Were Shop Bags made in 200d Steel Dyneema before? Or have they always been 400d Steel?
    Asking cos I'm wondering if they'll offer Shop Bags in 200d Steel Dyneema in future, or discontinue it since 400d Steel is retiring?

    I have always preferred steel over black. I wish I had scored a steel Ballistic LS when they were available. I have always championed for the original 200d Steel Dyneema swift pocket linings over the other colors. My Steel Dyneema/UV Swift (only one with colored pockets) and Steel Dyneema/Steel Pilot were an excellent pair for my latest trip. I even love the Steel Dyneema linings for my UV S19 and Nordic s25. They never seem too dark.
    I'm with McSteely Pants. 400d Steel Dyneema is fun, sexy, sophisticated, and unexpected, as well as it makes me swoon! I'm oh so very sad it has retired, and treasure the pieces I own.

    @kktintea, thanks for the confirmation.
    When I was told that there was 400d Steel available, I so wish to get it but I still trying to justify the need for it.
    Since it is gone now, I wouldn't have to give it any thought. It is gone for good, I guess.

    @icebeng, 200d Steel Shop Bag Small still available.
    I think only 400d Steel is retiring.

    My understanding is that yes, it is just the 400d steel dyneema that is retiring. I haven't verified that with the TB mothership though!

    I would like to chime in that I also like 400d Steel Dyneema very much...probably more so then Black Dyneema. Prefer the graphite look...quiet, confident sophistication

    My Steel Dyneema/Steel Pilot arrived yesterday!

    Shameless self-promotion: I posted a video of it here. :-)

    My favorite t-shirt is a Life Is Good brand shirt with an Adirondack chair on the front. It's purple! I love it so much that I usually wear it twice a week. Today I decided that I should buy another shirt like it, but in a different color, so that my coworkers stop calling me "eccentric."

    Here's what I picked:

    That's my Steel Dyneema SE next to it for comparison. When I pulled the shirt out of the dryer this evening I was all like, "Wait a second. That color looks familiar...."

    You can call me Steely McSteelShirt now if you want to.
