    ^ 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."

    @Pangifone If you haven't seen all of Seikoguy's pictures of bags in Aubergine (and, yes, he also chose his Aeronaut in Aubergine/Ultraviolet), you should browse the Attachments forum and input his name into the search. Here are a few threads:


    There are other photos in the middle of long threads that you can navigate to if you do a search under the attachments forum

    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.

    MtnMan,
    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.

    I can attest to this. I have had a green/black/UV Smart Alec for a few years. It still looks great and it is the one pack I keep coming back to despite trying and returning (or reselling) other TB back packs. Of all my TB bags, it remains my favorite - at least part of the reason for this is the color combo.
