It finally happened; yesterday my new Wasabi Dyneema Side Effect arrived [with matching Pouch Pocket]. My husband brought the box into me with a puzzled look on his face. "This is strange," he said. "Why are there Escher-like drawings on your box?" The poor man isn't a Bihnaholic, so he had no clue why I started squealing with delight. "At last I got box art!" I said.
And he's right; the floating cubes do look Escher-esque. Now the question is, how does one mount a shipping box for permanent display?
Thank you to whoever did this! I'm not sure what made me happier: the box art; the new Wasabi Dyneema Side Effect; or the fact that someone carefully selected a Pocket Pouch with a Wasabi lining to match the SE. [Also, it's Aubergine: I love all things Aubergine, so it's perfect on two scores.] Again, thank you to the great folks at TB who created this delivery for me.
This is my second 2nd-gen Side Effect, by the way. I ordered an Aubergine/Wasabi one last month and liked it so much I just had to have another. Though I love them both, and use them every day, I will note that the Wasabi Dyneema version is a bit lighter, and seems to be able to expand to accomodate a bit more stuff. Though the Augergine holds its slim shape better, and looks so elegant. Sometimes I can't decide which one to take on my walks.
Also, I was a bit concerned that the Wasabi Dyneema would be too garish in person, and maybe too chartreuse; but that isn't the case at all. It's bright and cheerful without being blinding; and there's not too much yellow in it either.
