    The Synapse 19 is now available in Nordic/Solar

    All you Nordic fans, the Synapse 19 is available for the first time in Nordic/Solar. The drop-down menu says it's on backorder for early May. This follows the offerings of this color combination for the Pilot, Side Effect, Clear Organizer Wallets, Cafe Bags, Synapse 25 (very briefly, availability in Nordic/Solar and then availability on Back order came and went, all in less than a week, and hasn't reappeared since), and the Co-Pilot. (Please tell me if I've missed any offerings). I'll include the picture that was listed for the debut of the Nordic/Steel combination:

    There have been lots of recent threads and posts that address the actual color of Nordic Dyneema under different lighting conditions. AFAIK this option showed up this morning, and wasn't on the product page last night.

    ETA While there haven't been any photos of the Synapse 19 in Nordic/Solar, you might want to take a look at taminca's post and photos of the Synapse 25 in Nordic/Solar in the Third Time's the Charm with Nordic thread.

    I told myself (quite sternly) that I was done with TB purchases. Had all the bags I needed. And then some! Enter the Nordic/Solar combination. Exit my willpower. Btw, in addition to the Pilot, Co-Pilot, and Synapse 19 (thanks, moriond), I just saw today that the AERONAUT in Nordic/Solar is on backorder!

    What you could do is sell your Nordic/Steel items, which would be popular with the European crowd, because Nordic/Steel items with black upside down zippers are vintage, shipping would be way cheaper then replace the sold item by a Nordic/Solar one.

    Whoa!!! Have the zipper changes (gunmetal tabs and teeth up/out) made their way to the Synapses and Aeronauts already???

    I don't know how you could tell yet. @taminca were you still deciding between the Nordic/Solar Synapse 25 and the parapack Navy/Solar Synapse 19? Keeping both? And your earlier Synapse 19 in Steel Dyneema?

    Definitely keeping the Nordic/Solar S25 (tag removed, camera gear packed nicely inside, and road-tested on a day trip)... Having a really hard time letting go of the Parapack Navy/Solar S19 (tag intact, unused, in new condition for returning but oh-so-gorgeous, especially next to the Nordic S25)... Will be putting Steel Dyneema/Wasabi S19 on eBay (once I figure out how)...

    If anyone is interested, Lynda.com offers training tutorials in eBay buying/selling and PayPal training. The eBay selling lessons are dated Oct. 2011, so they should still be useful. (Maybe a little bit of change.)

    I'll bet the TB website has blown more than one budget, mine included.
    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!
