dear indigo, i think i love you
i am so excited about the new indigo color, and i don't even "need" anything (other than the anxiously-awaited synapse, which i don't think will be offered in indigo due to fabric differences...?). i just bought an aeronaut *and* a smart alec two months ago, and if only i had known that they would both soon be released in blue! sigh. poor me. ;)
And I like your "old" black one ;)
I've got some travel sketched out in the next several months (San Jose by air, cross-country and back by car, Chicago by air, family reunion in Massachusetts by car, wedding in Vermont by car from the east coast, to and back from Seattle by air -- midway through the east-coast-by-car), and the black Aeronaut will be my main bag. Not a road warrior / jet-setter like the people who get paid $200k to fly around and "consult," but it'll be a few miles.
Something about "colorful" colors just bugs me in bags -- nice how things work out, eh?
Brain Bag in Sapphire, Side Effect in Indigo
I just got my Brain Bag and Side Effect yesterday. I am not very good at taking pictures, but here are a few of both colors side by side. The Brain Bag is in Sapphire, and the Side Effect is in Indigo. The Indigo is a deeper, richer blue with a hint of purple there. Both are very vibrant and jewel-like. I am delighted with both, and anxiously awaiting my Smart Alec in Black/Indigo/Solar! I decided to go back to backpacks instead of messenger bags this year, so my Super Ego & ID will be sitting in the closet for a while. Anyway, I hope this helps give you an idea of the color difference.
