    Side Effect Colors

    Are we getting the Side Effect in any new colors any time soon? Plum isn't really my color. I guess I could order Black and put a colored key strap on it (like I've seen others talk about). Some shade of red would be so lovely though....or maybe blue/sapphire? I'll even say please. PLEASE!!!!

    Hmm...ok. Black it is then. I'll just steal that idea of using the long keystraps as a handle and see what colors I can get! Thanks Darcy!

    Ordered a black Side Effect and some fun cayenne straps and pouches! Might have to go back for some other colors so I can coordinate!

    Congratulations on your new Side Effect. I know you will love it, especially "spiced" (good one!) as you said with that Cayenne keystrap.

    Based on this thread, I just ordered another Side Effect, too. I started to get worried that there were only two colors left, especially after Darcy said there were no plans to make SEs in additional colors. Is the SE going the way of the dodo? Horrors! So I just ordered one in Plum, which also satisfied the purple-lover in me. (Hear that, dorayme?) I already have an Indigo Side Effect which I adore, but you can never have too many TB bags.

    I got the black one and I figure I can always jazz it up with different OPs and keystraps! I like "spiced"!!! Good call on the plum. I'm just not a purple person. If they had any of the sapphire ones left, I would be all over that! Hope you like yours!

    I hear you loud and clear Nancy! I had this compulsion to check the boards because there was a faint echo of Plum. . .
    I tried to clip a flower onto my Side Effect today to jazz it up. Sadly it didn't stay on. I need a pin vs. a clip.
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    Add me to the list of people hoping for a next-generation side effect. Ultrasuede the smoother of the nylons (I can't seem to keep ballistic and cordura distinct in my head) with a removable (or non-existant) waist strap, but with loops for threading on a belt if desired.

    A lighter-weight Dyneema one would be fantabulous.

    But then, you know me... the Dyneema fanatic.
