    I literally gasped when I saw the SA in Nordic photo. Nordic is a very photogenic colour!

    Oh WOW Darcy, I didn't think the Nordic SA would be ALL Nordic. I love it! Now I'm torn between Aubergine and Nordic. I love my Dyneema Synapse so much it's really giving me pause.

    I think this is a sneaky plan. We all buy the bags in one fabric, then they introduce it in another fabric that we just HAVE to have!!

    I held out for 10 hours before the lure of nordic dyneema had me reaching for my credit card. And I'm not sure if I'm even a backpack kind of person, outside of the backcountry.

    Oh Darcy! You are killing us! Oh, and like lotuseater, I'm also wondering if there is a chance of Iberian lining with these new Dyneema bags? Just checked the SA page to see that you are offering it with the wasabi interior. Making these choices hard!

    Interesting updates. I really like the idea of a grab handle. I love my Smart Alec! I carry it to work everyday. I use the Brain Bag and Aeronaut for travel but the Smart Alec is perfect for getting around town!

    On Iberian interior: maybe, but not in this next batch.

    On weights: we're weighing the bags now and will post the weights soon!

    Not yet. Because we haven't made that color combination before, we have to wait until the factory crew actually finishes one to take a photo. Should be soon!

    Wow! I've never wanted anything but my sapphire Brain Bag, but that Nordic Dyneema SA is definitely making me think again! I love the new features on this backpack!

    Thanks, Darcy. The photo of Nordic / Steel already tipped me over the edge and I decided not to wait for the possibility of Steel / Iberian in a future batch. I look forward to receiving the shipping notification in the new year.

    Maybe. We're still deciding that.

    I vote for the Brain Bag in dyneema. Iberian lining will be awesome. Happy holidays, everyone!
