    Question Passport Pouch colors?

    The product page says the new pouch comes in Steel, Iberian, and Ultraviolet. The Practical Hacks photo looks like a blue. Is blue back in Dyneema?

    No, it is Steel.

    I have a couple of Sapphire and Steel Passport Pouches, this is definitely Steel the photo looks like it was taken in natural light, probably on a blue sky day.

    Steel Dyneema has the property to reflect light and absorb clothing colors in such amazing ways!

    I also thought it was blue. Royal blue would make a great dyneema color and has my full support.

    No new colors of Dyneema/nylon are on the way anytime soon (we have four now!) That's Steel.
