    Question/pictures about Linen/Steel CB? MCB vs. SCB?

    I am considering turning in my purple/wasabi MCB for a new one (I'm not the purple person I thought). I was interested in the Olive/Wasabi MCB, but the color combo is discontinued. I went to order the Linen/Olive MCB but realized that Linen is only offered with Steel in the MCB & the LCB. I'm flummoxed. Might anyone have a picture of the Linen/Steel? I can get the Olive/Wasabi and/or Linen/Olive in a SCB, which is tempting as I sometimes feel that my MCB is a touch too big (until I have to stuff it). I have a Swift that I can start using again for my knitting, but I did like the MCB in that I could shove a small stuff sack into the MCB with some room to spare. However, I could just stuff the SCB in the Swift. Too many choices!

    I have a Linen/Steel LCB and have posted picture with a review. However, on my monitor, they don't show up exactly the same as in real life. My suggestion is to send an email to Katy and ask her to send you a swatch of both colors, if they have any around, and you can see them in "real life."

    As a guy who usually just gets bags in black or gray, I "risked" getting one in linen and wound up really liking the color.

    Here's the link to my photos of the LCB in Linen/Steel:

    I did order the MCB in Linen/Steel & a SCB in Linen/Olive. I'll make a decision when they arrive, as Katy said they weren't certain when the Linen/Olive MCB will be restocked.

    I think I'm going to have to see them in person & figure out which will work.
