In June, we debuted three limited edition colors of our 200d Dyneema/nylon fabric: Zest, Island, and Northwest Sky. Though Island was the clear favorite, bags in all three colors sold out rather quickly.
We saved a small amount of each fabric. For months, we were unsure as to what we'd use it for. Maybe we'd save the remaining Zest, Island, and Northwest Sky for a new design. Or, maybe we'd save the remaining fabric for the next (and last?) round of limited edition Dyneema/nylon colors*. Ultimately, because we so often get phone calls or emails about those three colors and when we'll offer bags in them again, we decided to make the very last offerings of these colors part of our holiday debut.
*No hints as to what the next round of limited edition colors are! We expect them to debut in early 2016, and after they do, we'll hold a vote and one out of the six limited edition colors with the most votes will be added as our fifth 200d Dyneema/nylon color (joining Iberian, Ultraviolet, Steel**, and Wasabi).
**We like Northwest Sky so much we think it will replace Steel in 2016.
