    Question Dyneema Synapse

    Will there be any other Synapses made in Dyneema as the outer fabric (Wasabi!!!!) or is the Steel Dyneema currently available the only option for a while?

    There will be another option (or two) in the next batch of Synapse (due in late early-mid October) but I can't yet reveal what that will be. It won't be a Wasabi exterior, though.

    new synapse options: excellent news. crossing fingers for a light or bright colored option (linen/wasabi is far fetched
    but a person can dream, can't they?)
    no wasabi exterior: not great news. I add my voice to the clamoring masses.

    +1! I love my Black/UV Synapse, andI really don't need anther one, but I would buy Linen/Wasabi in a heartbeat.

    In fact, can I put out a general request for more Linen across the board? Imagine a Linen/Linen/Wasabi Imago!

    I would be all over a linen/linen/wasabi Imago and a linen/wasabi Synapse would be such a classy Summer commuting bag...

    D'oh! My next trip to the US is in the first half of October and I was considering a Synapse. Is there ay possibility that the colors will be announced slightly earlier (say late Sept) to ermit odering so they can be shipped as soon as they're in?


    (My hope is for Plum, Navy or Indigo with Wasabi interior.)

    It's possible, but I can't say for sure. The new options won't be Plum, Navy, or Indigo with a Wasabi interior.

    Is it wrong to feel so much anxious anticipation around a new bag colour??!

    I think you'll be pretty surprised. And pleasantly so...

    Will we be surprised about the Co-Pilot too? The steel dyneema seems to have gone away, and now I'm wondering if the Iberian one is soon to disappear. I obviously dithered too long trying to decide between the two....

    Yes. And the Co-Pilot will also be available once again in Steel Dyneema/nylon. The Iberian will disappear.
