    Dyneema Colors

    Any chance for dyneema in bright orange or neon green?

    I'd walk a mile for orange...not neon...think pumpkins, cantelopes, oranges, any or all if those...
    The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

    Something more kiwi like would be nice. Wasabi is ok but it's just not quite there, for me at least.
    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!

    I remember suggesting Orange dyneema as a lining in the anticipatory frenzy before the announcement of Wasabi, and after Solar was retired for the first time. At the time I think I was hoping for a Navy/orange Citizen Canine - now the CC has migrated to a future Skookum Dog product and we still don't have an Orange dyneema option!

    Well, the white dyneema thread makes the other colors look brighter so that may work. I'm a fan of Grabber Orange myself (Ford Mustang).

    Orange Dyneema would be awesome! It would satisfy fans of many sports teams and also the entire country of the Netherlands - count me in!

    I also wish for pink Dyneema. Can't wait to see what happens in 2014 at TB!

    Orange would be nice. Bright and clear, but not neon. Says somebody who has yet to order her first TB bag but is waiting with bated breath for the Aeronautlet (in aubergine/wasabi, please).

    Well, if we are going to get into sports teams, how about a nice goldenrod Dyneema for a lining of a black SE? Boston Bruins fan here...

    I'd prefer TB not make anything in orange fabrics as I'd like to keep some of my money.

    @eightspokedb You couldn't use Solar? And by the way, the cafe bags are now being offered in the Black 400d Dyneema/Solar combination (that you can get an impression of from my post in the pilot thread that shows a solar travel stuff sack in the water bottle pocket of a black 400d Dyneema Pilot.) However, I think you might like the new Kelly (green) Cordura options for the cafe bags? Here's the Kelly/navy combination in the old Swift and for the old Utility Tote in Kelly/navy.

    Ok, let's get a little more visual.
    I would say Pantone's color # 167.
    More of a blood orange, very earthy and robust.
    ;-)

    Meh to orange (sorry, orange fans!)...

    Am I right in thinking that Nordic isn't a lining colour because it only comes in the heavier weight? I'd like to see a blue dyneema lining that would coordinate well with, say, steel ballistic. Maybe a bit lighter than nordic but not too bright - more of a rich forget-me-not, like the sky on a summer day

    (I'd also like to see a Side Effect in Storm cordura, but that's a discussion for another day...)
    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19 + DLBC
    Leisure: SCBs, MCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, both with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    The cantelope color wpould be avery nicelining color...for navy, steel, black....a little too autumn for olive maybe.
    The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.
