Aubergine Tri-Star is not too fem!
I'm a guy but I like colors. I have a steel brain bag sitting in the closet that I should really put up on ebay because I bought the red brain bag before they sold out last year. I decided to travel lighter this year. Using the brain bag and a black aeronaut is just too heavy because I just fill it with more crap. I had my eye on the Tri-Star and finally decided to buy one. It was a tough decision between Cardinal and Aubergine but I don't like the steel dyneema color inside, so I decided to go with the Aubergine/Wasabi Tri-Star. My main concern was that the bag would look way to feminine being purple. Well, it still is purple so it's fem, don't get me wrong, but I have to say it's dark enough where my macho self can carry it with pride and not tell everyone that I'm just carrying my wife's bag. The purple looks much darker in person than in the pictures.
And I must add the Iphone takes pretty craptastic pictures.
