UPS delivered a Large Cafe Bag in the new Olive parapack material and lined with Wasabi dyneema to me today :) Happy happy day!
My initial impression: Wow.
Tom Bihn and crew have done it again!
And I have several other cordura LCBs in bright, fun colors- which I still dearly love and use.
The olive is darker than it appears on the website and it has a beautiful sheen that is difficult to capture on film. I love it.
I also received samples of the 4 new parapack colors. Yum. The Navy is my favorite (go figure, I know, as I am apparently a Navy Girl), the Olive is a close second. I was also surprised by how much I liked the steel, as I'm not normally a fan of steel cordura or ballistic nylon (I mean, it's beautiful and I admire it and all that but with other colors it tends to be one of my last choices).
If- when?- they make the Cafe bags in Navy parapack with Iberian lining, I will probably buy one in each size. Just sayin :)
In the meantime, I'm rockin my lovely new Olive LCB! Love it!
