    Do not offer a dyneema co-pilot ever again

    ...or I will be forced by powers beyond my control to buy one.

    I see the pilot and its page says it's available in black dyneema and so I wonder, hmmm.... how long can it be...

    I feel like Dyneema in the pilot and copilot is a signature item and just has to come back soon for the copilot! Also now we know from another thread that there is no immediate plan for a new 400d Dyneema, which makes me wonder if other interior colors will be offered.

    Or maybe a final run of solar interior?

    Where did you read that black is it (for now)? I was hoping for another color addition since nordic retired.

    It was in a reply from Darcy in another thread. Can't recall which, but Darcy stated they (and we are as well apparently judging by sales) were really happy with the Black 400d and not to expect any new 400d colours any time soon.

    Right. Or purple. or even one other than black....choice of dyneema is a choice for new horizons. but now it's just sideways, to black nylon.
    Personally I was hoping for more daring...like aubergine dyneema: NOW THAT would be so wonderful.

    taminca I can see there is a new special color in your live ;-)

    What I like about the forest most is that it is looking very good next to my aubergine. That way my husbands bags will always look good next to mine.

    Well...your photos of the Forest Pilot was so gorgeous! And you are right that Forest and Aubergine go well together.

    I'm still debating the Pilot. If I make the leap, little brother Co-Pilot may need to be placed in a Nordic dyneema loving home

    I think you will have no trouble finding a new home for your CP if needed, RhoFro!

    Ooh! I qualify! I LOVE Nordic! I have a Pilot, a Side Effect, Travel Tray, PCSB, and Western Flyer ALL in the lovely fabric! But sadly, no Co-Pilot...

    I'm kind of wishing I had picked up a Nordic/Solar bag of some type. I've seen some images of it recently and I'm kicking myself for not seeing the amazingness of Nordic until it was too late.
