Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! And although I want to assure my Irish great-grandmother that I am indeed wearing green, and the last thing I want to do on this of all days is to fan the flames of the Troubles, it’s the “other” Irish color that I’m excited about today: Burnt Orange.
My box of TB goodies arrived today! Thank you to the kind souls who took pity on me and my pathetic pleading and sent me the Small Q-Kit in the Burnt Orange of my dreams. Here is the unboxing photo [in the 80-degree sunshine] of my new Burnt Orange SE, small Q-Kit, and COW. I’m so happy.
They join my Burnt Orange DLBP. I think this photo of the Clan Orange shows how little difference there is, in terms of color, between the BO Cordura and the new BO Ballistic.
Finally, I thought I’d also share a photo of my six pack: no, not beer, @badger! And no, not my abs either. This is my six pack of Side Effects, which I think is my favorite TB bag of all. The line-up includes, starting at the top left and working down, Aubergine, Verde, Nordic Dyneema, Black Dyneema, a first-generation Indigo Cordura with sewn-in waist strap, and of course Burnt Orange. I'm in love.
PS I'd love a Side Effect in Red Blend, if TB ever makes another Cordura SE! Or in Iberian Dyneema: something red or a gorgeous saturated pink like the retired Azalea or Punch.
