    Nope. They confirmed in the YouTube comments that Ultraviolet is not going away; it just wasn't in the video being cut with that other stack.

    Ok, so the big huge Friday announcement is a color? Really? Not a new bag (*cough cough* Checkpoint Flyer *cough cough*), not even a new color. Just the return of a previously discontinued color? That's huge news?

    Color me underwhelmed, guys. Nice sizzle, but sorry, that doesn't taste like steak. A small burger perhaps.
    It's worth considering that your entire purpose in life could be to serve as a warning to others.

    Wonderful!

    One of the most beautiful video highlighting the talent of The Lovely Crew: precision sewing, precision cutting, eagle eye inspecting and great video producing!

    What is that wonderful Solar music?


    Even for somebody who is not a warm color person, Solar is something else.

    It is like a piece of the warmest noon sun was encapsulated in the loveliest lemon colored flower!

    It is bright and cherry, a definite happy color!


    I see many Solar Shop Bags, Packing Cubes Backpacks, Shoulder Bags and others gracing many holidays and everyday locations.

    It is going to make Tom Bihn Bags spotting waaaaaaay easier!



    Big Hugs for keeping UV!

    Thank you! I've ignored YouTube comments for so long that I forgot to look in those ones. (Not an insult to the excellent videography, just a habit.)

    Yay! I'm another solar lover. No, that's not a banana in my pocket. I'd love a Nordic/Solar something, but I guess that's not in the cards.
    Lime and darbs like this.

    Is Nordic actually being retired? It was never a lining colour...

    I for one would love a Nordic/solar synapse25...

    I want to thank the Bihn crew for letting us know about the re-introduction of Solar Dyneema to its product lines. I hope we see it in the travel luggage (Western Flyer, Aeronaut, Tri-Star), as well as the Clear Organizer Pouches, Clear Quarter Packing Cube, and, of course, the Travel Trays.

    Just to show you what a smarta$$ I am: how about an all-Dyneema Aeronaut with both the interior and the exterior being Solar? That would stand out at the airport, wouldn't it?
    Owner of: Super Ego briefcase (Black / Indigo / Steel) with Reflective Strip, Brain Cell (Steel), Horizontal Freudian Slip, various Organizer Pouches and Key Straps, and a Side Effect (Black / Wassabi) worn as a belt-style hip-pack.

    BTW: my favorite color combo would have to be an Aeronaut with a Navy exterior and a Solar interior. (My favorite weird dream would be an all-Dyneema Aeronaut with a Ultraviolet exterior and a Solar interior!)

    A steel dyneema/solar dyneema Synapse 19 on the way in July. Love the solar dyneema interiors.
    Hey Darcy any plans for a Black/Solar Synapse 25 in the future?
