In fact it's probably closer to this depiction of the Packers' throwback pants.

    I was thinking the exact same thing about the 49ers and Packers throw back jersey! I committed the ultimate football sin. I grew up a diehard 49ers fan in the 70s-80s but forgot about football when I started grad school in the early 90s. When I moved back to WI to a partner who is a die hard Packers fan, I ended up converting.

    Looks great! I love the look of Coyote in these pictures. Under what kind of lighting conditions was this? It looks the way I think I want Coyote to look (but doesn't always depending on the lighting).

    I also like the tone on tone Coyote accents; Coyote webbing, Coyote zipper tracks, It's less stark of a contrast to a Coyote bag with black trim/accents like I have on my NFTD.

    I am liking the pairing of a Coyote (with black accents) NFTD with a Black (with Coyote accents) Founder's Briefcase though. They seem to work since they are the reverse patterns of each other. That was my long weekend kit this past weekend going up to visit my parents with the NFTD being my small weekender, and the FB had my work laptop in it (and a Daylight folded up in case I thought I needed another bag).
    Own: Aeronaut 45 (Navy/Iberian), Aeronaut 30 (Steel/Ultraviolet), Night Flight (Coyote/Steel), Guide's Pack (Steel), Synapse 19 (Olive/Steel), Daylight (Navy), Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack (Wasabi), Founder's Briefcase (Black), Pilot (Steel 400d/Steel), Co-Pilot (Black/Iberian), Side Effect (Black/Ultraviolet), Travel Tray (Iberian), various cubes, pouches, sacks, and straps

    Want: EVERYTHING.

    4 ft shop light with fluorescent bulbs.. one warm spectrum bulb, one cool.

    I prefer matching zips and web too. To my eyes, the coyote color is not really mustard or even gold that I've seen in some images. Brown-ish with gold tones, I guess. Someone posted a bowl of brown sugar next to a coyote bag and I think it's a fair representation of the color. I am pleased it is not the gold color of those football pants that were posted!

    @Dandelion Thanks for sharing the pics! I too really like the coyote accents - especially the zippers. Coyote zipper teeth and the gunmetal pulls looks very sleek IMO

    @Ineffable If you like Coyote accents, check out the line of Organizer Pouches at Skookum Dog. I like the Coyote Organizer Pouches with the mesh option, and carry the Mini pouch from Tom Bihn that was issued before the Skookum Dog site went up. This holds Double Carabiner Clips and a few other such accessories in my Side Effect front zippered pocket. But you can get the Coyote mesh in Small and Medium size Coyote Ballistic Nylon pouches, too, from Skookum Dog, and I like the lighter coloring in the mesh. As you can see from @Dandelion's photos, Coyote looks good against Black 400d Dyneema.

    Two pair of 5 fingers in outer pocket cuts into space of next pocket and interior pockets inside main compartment can intrude into that space also. Just depends on how you want to pack.

    Since Solar is not returning anymore (or ever so soon), I decided to skip Smart Alec and go for the best value Backpack - Brain Bag despite its without Solarness.

    I saw the Coyote option available. I wonder how it difference with Ballistic? Would there be similar shine for Cordura? Any one here may own Coyote Cordura and have your perspective include photos?

    Thanks,
