As for the backorder issue, there's a very nice explanation video on the blog and a post in the forums about it.....
Everyone. Everyone. Everyone.
This thread is about the new Nordic/Solar Side Effect.
Please keep on topic. If there are those who wish to pursue the side thread that has been developing (devolving?) here, it would be more appropriate to start a new thread.
Finally, while no one said we all need to agree or get along all the time, keep in mind we strive for a certain level of harmony and respect here on the forum. Please consider your rhetoric, your word choice, tone, and (most importantly) whether or not to hit "Reply."
That is all. OMG NORDIC SIDE EFFECT, &c., &c.

I've never seen Nordic in person. Sad. What am I missing?
Here are some more SE color sample pics:
On clear nights, right before or right after the sun rises or sets, when its light turn the dark of night into gradients of blue, from blue black to rich blue, the lighter color will be Nordic.
To help you here the link to the flicker set for the Synapse 19, which shows many bags in Nordic goodness.

My SEs arrived. No nordic/solar . So I checked my email to TB. Sure enough - I asked them to swap one color with BLACK dyneema/wasabi NOT nordic/solar as I intended. Oh well. I guess nordic solar gets added to next order.
Oh the SEs are olive 420d/uv, steel 420d/steel and the black dyneema/wasabi. I like the fine weave of the parapack. Almost simulates the fine weave of cordura, but smoother.
Love the black dyneema - wishing the lining is iberian.
Sorry - meant to add that the olive/uv is a nice combination. My first olive bag, although I bought olive bags in the past for presents.
The steel 420d/steel is a bit too dark. I may return this one to swap with the nordic/solar.
Conclusion: I like the parapack, LOVE the dyneema.
Here are photos of my loot, taken with my phone. Also got a UV key strap, but it is in my Co-Pilot looking after my office and house keys.
Is the first one navy parapack? Or steel? The pic looks blue, but paler than navy. Whatever it is, it is stunning!

Indeed, it is steel 420d. It is pretty. I wish, though, that the lining were iberian instead of steel. Will have to get either a SCB or MCB in steel 420/iberian. I think that color combo is stunning.
This maybe a bit better photo (still taken with phone)
