So I had finally managed to decide on the color combination and place my Pilot order (two days after everyone else) for 400d Black Dyneema/Wasabi after much agonizing about whether to order the 400d Nordic Dyneema/Solar version, and a check through of the various existing photos of the Co-Pilot in Nordic and in Black, along with a review of my existing Nordic and Black Dyneema bags, etc.
Then I went back to the Side Effect Product page that I had checked several times in the past week, and lo and behold there was an option for Nordic/Solar! Now, the first time I've seen the Nordic/Solar color combination was when the Pilot was announced on Wednesday. And this is embarrassing, because I'd commented in the thread on the Pilot colors: "Would really like to see a Nordic/Solar or Nordic/Wasabi option " just a few days before Christmas, but hadn't noticed this new color option for the Side Effect. I swear that it only emerged in the last few days or Darcy is just trying to check how obsessively we're reading the product pages!
Anyway, I'm really happy to see this, and of course I had to place an order. So if I end up changing the color in my Pilot order, it will be based on the direct color combo information. And, oh, I have really been wanting this color combination in the Side Effect! Yippee!! (And just letting all you other Nordic enthusiasts that this combination is available.)
