    So this is how the last 36 hours or so have gone for me:

    10:28 PM July 21st - I wonder if TB has come out with more color options for the MCB...I've been wanting one for some time now but waiting for a color/material combo that I love. "Siri, open Safari" (I nearly always have a TB page open)
    10:30 PM July 21st - Alrightttt! The new colors were released for the MCB, which color/material combo should I buy??
    10:35 PM July 21st - Solar?!? Oh wow, looks like Black Dyneema / Solar it is!
    10:46 PM July 21st - But...Olive/Wasabi...
    10:47 PM July 21st - Damn, I wish it weren't Olive 420d Parapack But...then again...I REALLYYY haven't done enough research to rule out Parapack as an option. *Plugs in phone to charge, fires up tablet*
    11:45 PM July 21st - Hmmmm, finding a good picture of the Olive/Wasabi has proven to be more difficult than expected.
    12:30 PM July 22nd - You know...maybe I can compromise and get the Cocoa/Olive! Then I'll be fulfilling my desire for a Cordura exterior.
    12:45 PM July 22nd - But I'm reallyy not ecstatic about the Cocoa. I should probably take a break and shop some accessories.
    1:30 AM July 22nd - It's final; I'd rather the dyneema over the available options. Solar seemed like a deal-maker three hours ago, but I do reallyy like the Steel/Wasabi combo...maybe I should sleep on it.
    8:00 AM July 22nd - After sleeping on it, I'm going with the Steel/Wasabi. Now to finalize my accessories...time to decide which colors will work best with the majority of my bag interiors and provide maximum contrast.
    8:30 AM July 22nd - You know...maybe I should reconsider on the Olive 420d... It will look awesome with my Burnt Orange S25
    8:45 AM July 22nd - Nope, steel dyneema it is! Better pare down the shopping cart and start working...oops
    9:00 AM July 22nd - Order placed. Looks like I'm working late tonight...TOTALLY worth it.
    7:00 PM July 22nd - Shipment notification email received. *Brief happy dance commence*
    7:30 AM July 23rd - Better check back on the forum to see what colors/materials others are buying.
    7:32 AM July 23rd - Wait, what?!? Someone's talking about Linen...that can't be right for the MCB... *DID THEY POST NEW COLORS??*
    7:33 AM July 23rd - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Olive/Steel
    7:35 AM July 23rd - I better check and confirm that the shipment has actually left the factory.
    7:36 AM July 23rd - @#^&% So...does this mean I should order a back up MCB? I meannnn, I went with the dyneema for its packing (i.e. squishibility factor) for a 'destination' EDC. I really wanted the Cordura for my regular EDC. What to do, what to do...
    7:37 AM July 23rd - Checks bank account.
    7:40 AM July 23rd - Hmmmm, my birthday is coming up in two weeks... Maybe I can finagle a wish list miracle instead

    TB, why do you do this to me??

    Love,
    Nate

    @nathan4, I'm totally with you there. I've been kind of coveting a linen/navy MCB for awhile now and I couldn't quite justify getting another bag, but TBAS is definitely a condition that needs to be treated.

    @taminca - Thanks! Can you please let my family & gf know that? They think I'm slowly losing it..

    @al85 - I'm preferential to the brighter interiors (or steel), but I must say that the linen/navy is veryy handsome. Good luck restraining yourself now that it's an option... On the other hand, congrats & enjoy if TBAS gets the better of you!

    @nathant4, I currently am sporting the black dyneema/solar LCB, so I understand the brighter interior preference. My usual EDC is steel/cayenne, but yes, the linen/navy feels understated and classy to me. I'll try to keep the TBAS at bay. XD

    Did I miss it earlier or is burnt orange/navy now an option??

    And here I thought I'd manage to convince myself I'd wait it out till an Imago replacement was released before getting any new TB stuff... must... resist...

    I think it's complicated because you're using the wrong words. Repeat after Badger:

    "French Blue ... AND Burnt Orange."

    Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    I was getting seriously bummed out about the lack of colors in MCBs a few days ago. I was wanting to order one for my upcoming two week-long road trip.

    I love the linen color, but the Longhorn alumni in me is salivating over the burnt orange bag. This will be a touch decision over the next hour.

    I wish I could have two, but I've got a ton of bags as it is and this is replacing my current crossbody travel bag.

    The perfect bag for me would be linen/burnt orange (or vice versa). I ordered the burnt orange after all because it's a great color and it will fit right in where I live.
