    Yep. That's why I wish I knew more about color spectrum and how warm vs. cool light affects different colors.


    Regardless of the color, the Smart Alec is an incredible backpack. I can't wait...

    Tiviander, that's interesting. We need a scientist to chime in on the spectrum properties of steel. Or a photographer or visual artist. Maybe a physicist.

    Here's steel with Northwest Sky. I...

    I agree!

    Moriond, you have a Citizen Canine in steel. Do you think it's the same batch as my Smart Alec? Other steel owners chime in too!

    A month ago, I got a brand new secondhand Smart Alec in steel, a color that would not be my first choice. Since then, I've used it a lot, and now I'm obsessed with sneaking up on it and getting a...

    Have you tried the Spiff Kit? I call it the Spiff Effect. Since I got one, my Side Effects (Nordic/solar, navy/solar/ and black/steel) have been relegated to storage. It holds a lot more and it...

    Northwest Sky is the winner, now that I see it in person in the form of a travel tray. It's a lovely, pacific shade of gray.

    I'd stick with the Aeronaut because it's so easy to live out of when you're on the road, like a dresser or a trunk.

    You won't regret keeping it! My Smart Alec came used, so no returns. There's something liberating about quickly and decisively making it yours.

    I actually like the jangly zippers though :)

    The Smart Alec is the best bag for car-free commuters. It never seems to run out of space. I hope you love it! I've had mine for about a month now.

    I've had a bear of a time getting zinc oxide sunscreen off backpack straps, so I'm curious to see where this discussion leads.

    I cast my vote for a Zest Spiff Kit. (I know that's not what we're voting on. I'm starting a write-in campaign) ;)

    I love orange. And I believe more in complementary colors than matching, so zest away! Zest packing cube bags would be excellent for dark bike commutes, too.

    I have a confession: since I got a Synapse 4 years ago, I haven't used any other brand of bag. I sometimes miss my Synapse when I have my Smart Alec, and vice versa, though.

    Zest speaks to my heart. I love orange!

    Subliminal message... Put zest in every bag. Ballistic steel/zest. Navy/zest. Even black/zest. I would buy them all.
