    New 1050d Ballistic Nylon Colour coming soon??

    According to the TB Instagram, a new BN colour is coming soon!

    I suppose it could be a new grey to match that new Cordura grey option that popped up, but I'm hoping for a new red to replace Cardinal which has been gone for a bit.

    As much as I'd like to see a Burnt Orange, or maybe something like Indigo, I will try not to be selfish long enough to hope that your wish is granted, @Itsablur. Other than Iberian Dyneema, currently there is no red in the TB lineup. So I'll root for a new red like Cardinal or Crimson in Ballistic Nylon for you.

    Yes, some kind of red, please! A classy maroon shade, maybe? I'm dreaming of a red SA already <3

    Or a Sage-like colour! (Though I guess that'll be too similar to Steel.)

    I would be ok with an Orange, even though I don't know if I'd want something as big as an A45 in BO. Looking at the current fabric lineup though, across all fabrics, red seems the most poorly represented base colour. How do we not have a red?? How have we gone for so long without a red??

    Don't throw rotten eggs at me, guys, but speaking of poorly represented base colors, is yellow a base color?
    And we've just lost Solar!
    Would Ballistic Nylon in yellow work?
    It could be named Egg Yolk, or Smiley! :P

    I'm going to suggest some unlikely possibilities, just for the fun of imagining bags in these colors:

    Fuchsia/hot pink as a limited edition (I guess all are limited editions in a way)
    Olive - maybe a cross between Coyote and Forest
    Lemon yellow - probably not practical for dirt/stains but what a sporty color!

    ETA - @iceberg, jinx! I just saw your post after I submitted mine.

    Most likely a deep red color since 1050 tends to lean on the professional side, but then again it was in lime a little while ago.

    Agreed. I was going to say I'd bet my entire TB collection that it's going to be a red, but wisely decided against that

    It might be a deep brown, Cocoa is back and Burn Orange as well as Coyote have been introduced to the TB back lineup.

    Deep brown is very professional looking and is in the same warm color family as the colors above.

    In the wardrobe thread and in pictures, it looks like many TB forum members like warm colors.

    I also think that a deep and neutral turquoise could work

    If it is a deep Fuschia, it would be so awesome!

    Just keeping my fingers crossed that some of it gets made into Smart Alecs.
