    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.
    LOL! I love the burnt orange color but have been staying away from ordering it because it reminds me of where I used to live! It is definitely a Longhorns color!

    Re FB: "FB synapses are gorgeous, but my next backpack should be black. And I don't get to use my DLBP everyday."

    Kiwi newsflash: There are some small ballistic mesh kiwis. I got one yesterday too because I think black mesh + kiwi = cute.

    Somehow Dyneema Black and Iberian or Wasabi are missing. This may mean bag failure!

    I received my linen/navy MCB today. While the linen is lovely, the navy parapack is spectacular. There is definitely something in the olive parapack in my future!

    Bennie: welcome to the forum! Great color combo that you got yourself there. Would you mind taking some pictures?

    Olive is the best of the lot IMO. It's got more colour variation in the light than navy. Steel is nice too, but some have remarked on how green it is. I would recommend the olive/steel parapack cafe bag if it's parapack goodness that you're after

    Olive parapack is lovely! I have a S19 and a SE as my EDC for work, as they're just the right mix of smart+casual to look professional in an academic environment.

    @Vivelly -- If you like purple, then I think the Plum/Wasabi combo will really appeal to you. For work, I also wear exclusively black/gray, and Plum is dark enough to be noticeable but not glaring. It's a nice pop of color.

    It will blend with your blue items, too. Most of my TB bags are blue/green/purple. The Plum color blends nicely with Indigo, Storm, and Turquoise.
    SE: b-Aubergine; c-Plum Indigo; d-Steel Nordic Black Solar Wasabi; pp-Olive

    SWIFT: Turquoise Plum Hemp Aubergine Olive Kiwi INDIGO!!!!
    PCSB: Ultraviolet Wasabi Steel Iberian Nordic
    SSB: Ultraviolet Wasabi Steel Solar Iberian Nordic
    LSB: Ultraviolet Wasabi Steel Solar Iberian Nordic Black

    SCB: Plum Nordic Cocoa d-Black/Solar d-Nordic/Solar
    MCB: Plum Nordic Storm Cocoa d-Nordic/Solar d-Black/Solar

    IMAGO: Indigo/Plum, Navy/Cork, Black, Cocoa
    CO-PILOT: Indigo
    AERONAUT 45: Indigo

    Ilkyway, Thank you for the welcome. You know how there are a bunch of very computer savy people in this forum? Well I'm not one of them! I will try to take some pictures today after work and see if I can figure out how to post them. I work on a computer all day at work, but when it comes to figuring out anything new to me, I've got people for that. With personal computer stuff it is just me bumbling through.

    Bennie don't get stressed! If it does not work or just gets on your nerves... leave it. If it is easier, maybe you want to mail the pictures to a moderator, moriond has helped out others too, you are not the only one to whom computers wont tell their secrets easily. They are creepy that way.

    But really: do not feel you have to, I am always asking for pictures and I wont get hurt if I do not get them.

    Bennie, Welcome! I'm as inept as you in this department. To post pictures, simply ask for help in the forum, and someone will graciously reply. Although I now know how to do this, I couldn't explain it to someone else as I don't do it often enough. Besides, there are lots of other things taking up space joyfully in my brain....

    Let's see if I can get this to work. I included my cotton tan hat for comparison.
