    More stuff in coyote please!!

    This is another one of those colors, like kiwi, where the pictures don't do justice. I ordered a Qkit in coyote in my latest order. It is just beautiful. A really nice shiny warm medium brown, not at all dull like the pictures and not at all like military coyote. I could so see a new Side Effect in this or I might even splurge on some travel bags if offered in coyote (sick of the sea of black).
    So far: LS in black dyneema/iberian , PU in coyote/steel (this bag is not just for parents), SE in black/iberian and coyote/steel, SSB in black dyneema, Vintage Buzz in black and numerous pouches, 3D cubes, straps. Still waiting for the perfect weekender bag which would be a slightly larger Night Flight or a slightly smaller Skookum duffle.

    You could always order the bags they have on Skookum (TB sister company). Their medium road duffel s pretty close to Aeronaut size. It does look great in coyote... http://www.skookumdog.com/p/road-duffel-bag.html

    No one will think less of you for using a dog travel bag.
    Own: Aeronaut 45 (Navy/Iberian), Aeronaut 30 (Steel/Ultraviolet), Night Flight (Coyote/Steel), Guide's Pack (Steel), Synapse 19 (Olive/Steel), Daylight (Navy), Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack (Wasabi), Founder's Briefcase (Black), Pilot (Steel 400d/Steel), Co-Pilot (Black/Iberian), Side Effect (Black/Ultraviolet), Travel Tray (Iberian), various cubes, pouches, sacks, and straps

    Want: EVERYTHING.

    Is the skookum bag in this thread a good representation of the coyote color? I've seen so many images of coyote and many seem to be on the yellow side. I like this brown version better if it's a true representation.

    Not brown. Leaning yellow. More like blond wood color but in a fabric. Maybe get a small pouch and see the color. Cheapest way to do it.

    No, it's not. It's definitely more yellow, as @meekasmom says. Subject to the usual caveat that colours can display differently across monitors, I think this is a pretty accurate representation (and not just because I took the photo!).

    I agree, that is more accurate (on my monitor). I have a Coyote A45, and even though the pictures look great, it's far better in person. I was a bit unsure when I ordered it, but I'm really pleased.

    Even cheaper: Ask in the 'Comments' box in your next order for free fabric sample! (But I got a coyote Q-Kit to sample the fabric, hehe.)

    Thanks for posting the image. I like the color....... looks like antiqued brass and much richer than some other representations of coyote. Nice!
