    different color keystraps?

    I seem to recall (but can't find) a thread where people discussed that it would be very useful to have different color keystraps, so if you have more than one on an o-ring you didn't have to pull them out to see what was attached. As I recall, Darcy said this might be coming in 2010. Is there any update?

    By the way, one reason I ask is that I was planning on getting an organizer pouch to carry my glasses case (and maybe an ID) inside my buzz. The case measures about 6 inches by 3 inches so I expect a small org. pouch would be big enough, but just thought I'd check if that sounded right (leaning towards padded or cordura for the extra durability?).

    I would love to have colorful straps! I am just not a fan of dreary black (though that hasn't stopped me from buying quite a few of the little buggers anyway!)

    This would be a great idea, most notably because it would make a great organizational tool. (Maybe if you connected a blue keystrap to a blue organizer pouch, it would make it that much quicker to fish-out the blue pouch from your Tom Bihn backpack or messenger bag.)

    Yes, count me in as favoring this idea as long as the color of the straps bears some similarity to the color of pouches that they would attach to.

    Great idea.

    Count me in as liking this idea! I have about a gazillion of the little things and end up pulling each out of my bag to find the right pouch/ set of keys (I have three sets of keys and three pouches clipped to key straps in my Imago.) Fluorescent colors would work best for me!

    Count me in on this! I know when I grab my red pouch, it's my phone; cocoa, my Starbucks card; steel Dyneema, my cash..etc. It would be handy to have matching key straps, so I don't pull up 3 black straps before I order my Soy Chai!

    In case the color straps are a long time away, a piece of yarn or even better some plastic yarn used for plastic canvas.

    They come in a variety of colors, some must be matching the Pouches colors.


    Of course, I would be delighted to see
    genuine Tom Bihn keystraps in a rainbow of colors.


    May I also suggest placing each Pouch in the same O ring in the same order, everyday.

    It helps me a lot.

    Darcy,

    Any chance the stitching on each color is a different texture? Or.. is there enough room at the top of it to stitch some type of mark into it to differentiate them by touch instead of sight?

    Tzporah: You could attach a cord to the strap and thread a bead onto it, or a paper clip or twist tie, or make a knot, etc.
