^ Great little review; outstanding photos there.
Original designs. Made in the U.S.A.
^ I have to admit, the Smart Alec's combination of black / black / solar dyneema looks better than I expected. It is actually quite impressive. I would love to see a Smart Alec with a navy blue / cardinal / solar combination. Of course, that combination would only exist in fantasyland.
For the Cafe Bags:
I'd quite like to see a dark purple parapack paired with solar or uv or steel dyneema (though that presumes a broadening of parapack colours).
I'd also like to see either a steel or an olive parapack paired with uv. I know they've done this with the side-effect, love to see in the slightly bigger EDC bags.
Just poppin' in to spread the purple love... :)
My Aeronaut (first bag I got here) is Aubergine/Ultraviolet, and I flippin' LOVE it. When I ordered it, I wasn't familiar with the company or the dynamic nature of the color offerings, so I had assumed it was a standard thing and I could get many things in Aubergine/Ultraviolet. Unfortunately, it remains the only bag I've ever seen in that combination. I have a few others that are Aubergine/Wasabi, and I just DO NOT LIKE the wasabi with the Aubergine. If I could re-buy all of them in Aubergine/Ultraviolet, I'd gladly sell my Aubergine/Wasabi ones.
So my vote goes to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make more Aubergine/Ultraviolet! :)
It's pronounced "Pan-Jiff-Oh-Knee."

I like what ultraviolet dyneema looks like as an interior bag lining in pictures. I have never seen it in person. The photo that really impressed me the most was the one of the steel ballistic exterior / ultraviolet dyneema interior on the Aeronaut product page.
Can anyone here tell me from first-hand experience, strictly from a utilitarian point-of-view, other exterior colors that contrast well with ultraviolet interior linings to provide improved interior bag visibility?
I can't answer your request for other color compatibilities, but I can assure that the steel/UV combination is smashing in real life. I saw an Aeronaut in the showroom in December and it knocked my socks off. I now have a steel/UV Pilot.

I love the steel/uv color combination. Any green goes well with uv. Of course anything black works too. If I recall correctly, if you want harmony go for colors next to each other on the color wheel. If you want complimentary go for colors opposite each other.
