@Ilkyway What color is the 8-inch key strap attached to your car keys? From the side view in the middle picture, I would have guessed this is plum, but the contrasting flash of color in the center of your Side Effect shown in the bottom picture makes this look like storm.
Here's the product page image with the original Cordura key strap colors:
The 8-inch key strap colors are Olive, Plum, Black, and Storm. (There also used to be Crimson, before that color was discontinued). The 16-inch key strap colors are Black, Cayenne, Wasabi, and Sapphire.
I miss the range of Cordura colors in the key straps. Only Olive appears to be available now.
Also, @Ilkyway what color is your Clear Organizer Wallet? (It's always a problem that if you show the contents view of the front of the wallet, you can't show the back view with the wallet's color).
Great looking Aubergine/Wasabi Side Effect!
Edited this post to put back the original image of the keystrap colors referenced at the time of posting (rescued from a Pinterest post). I originally included a link to the name of the keystrap image on the product page image like this, where the image pointed to a product page jpeg:
This image name was reused, and points to a different image now (not the one I referenced at the time I posted). So the editing changes now force versions of the referenced images to be loaded to the attachments gallery at the time they are "attached" for long-term accuracy. And in case the above jpeg image changes again, these are the new (current as of the time of editing on 18 September 2014) key straps, saved as an attachment:

Reason: Fixed the key strap images to match the ones used at the time of the original post
The keystrap is plum. It was my first TB-order and I did not know than, that these colors would go away so fast. It is my only short keytrap in a color (not counting black as it is supposed to be no color or so my physics teacher tolled me ;-) )
My clear organizer wallets are aubergine, steel dynemma and nordic dynemma. In the picture it is the nordic one. I have to tell you I would love a storm keystrap! Olive is not my kind of color though.
PS: this Side Effect looks so good with an aubergine Smart Alec so if you do not have the SE jet... I know you have the SA... ;-)
@Ilkyway, not only do I have an Aubergine SE, I have that a mini brown-leather wallet that looks almost exactly like yours! We're twins.
@Ilkway, Aubergine/Wasabi was the first Side Effect I ordered, and if you read my comments toward the end of the Recovery from TBAS thread that @Moose started, along with a posted picture of a Side Effect in Aubergine/Ultraviolet, you'll see that I've also ordered an Aubergine/UV SE. I have one Storm Key Strap, and it looks better in that Aubergine/UV Side Effect. (The Storm Blue color goes well with both the Aubergine and Ultraviolet -- even better than with Aubergine and Wasabi. Also, my earlier Aubergine/Wasabi SE has black cord pulls, and the Storm Key Strap also looks good against the gun metal gray zippers that are used with the current versions of the Side Effects).

Ah moriond you are totally right and I had totally read that threat. BUT I lack your phenomenal memory (which combined with your helpful attitude does this forum so much good.). It was late in the evening when I wrote my suggestion. Smile about me and do not think about it no longer.
I can totally believe that the storm keychain looks stunning in the aubergine/ultraviolet Side Effect. Maybe when the stress the TB-Crew is facing right now we will see Kelly and French Blue Keystraps? I'd like that.
I would love a Storm keystrap. I'll even settle for a 2 inch one if they can make one out of fabric remnants!
I totally agree about flaps and vertical orientation. I am currently using an Eagle Creek bag with a flap and often want to hurl it out of the car window when trying to find something not in the flap area.

That said, once when inDubai, I was spotted by a young woman from the states enroute to India with my twin aeronaut. Keep your eyes open for TB luggage twice a year in NZ!
