    I vote on it being Storm. Maybe washed a few times and faded?

    How about this?



    That's a Sapphire key strap on the top and a Storm one on the bottom.

    Great picture Janine!

    Yep, it is Cordura like, or Cordura, so no clue.

    I almost spilled wine all over my keyboard. That quote sums up my entire day with research students discussing 'reliability' and 'validity' and 'psychometric properties'!!!

    Color of Janine's vintage cafe bag is probably not storm

    WhiteStar, the design of the Tom Bihn logo label on the bag is an older style, and predates the introduction of Storm as a Cordura color option in March 2008. For a better view of storm to put up in a comparison window, try the June 2011 blog post, "Welcome back, Storm". Janine, your bag might be the color designated "U.N. Blue" in the color swatch images from mid-2003. That shows up with Wasabi conveniently placed beside U.N. Blue. The color renditions from the old swatch images won't be exact, but I think if you put up comparison windows containing your bag picture, the old swatch colors, and the picture of Storm from the blog post welcoming back Storm in 2011, you may find "U.N. Blue" to be a plausible candidate for your bag color.

    Forum readers might want to refer to Janine's parallel thread, Please indulge my obsession with the history of Tom Bihn products, for more details on the old colors.

    I've never seen these archival colors IRL, but what about Titanium?
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    Wow, thank you! U.N. Blue is a really good guess. Looks like they ran out of U.N. Blue in 2004 (Two more easy questions about ID bag) and unless another batch was ordered, that means my bag is at least 8 years old.

    ps. Glitter Blue?!?!

    pps. Darcy likes the name! (old post here)

    That is what I'm thinking. He says sort of a royal blue. Either way, I'm hoping I can get it!
