Does anyone have a COW in turquoise or conifer? I don't see samples of those colors on the color sample page. Unless I'm missing something?

Thanks!!

I'll look today. I'd planned to dig through my box later anyway. (I need a bigger one since it can no longer contain my smaller Bihn items.)

Here's a picture of Clear Organizer Wallets from the 11 October 2011 Blog post:
Turquoise is the second wallet from the left in the second row of colors
http://www.tombihn.com/blogimages/clearorganizersblog.jpg
The full list of wallet color/fabric options is: (1st row) Steel Dyneema, Black, Hemp, Cocoa; (2nd row) Navy (all fabric), Turquoise, Olive, Kiwi Ballistic Nylon; (3rd row) Plum, Cardinal Ballistic Nylon, Azalea, Cork

If only a color is listed without qualification, then the fabric is Cordura (the same material currently used for the outside of the Cafe Bags). Kiwi and Cardinal are Ballistic Nylon colors (e.g., the same material that is used for the heavy duty versions of travel luggage bags like the Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Western Flyer, Night Flight Travel Duffel, and all current model Swifts). Hemp (more specifically, Vulcana rubber hemp) and Cork were special material that were used for bags and pouches in the past, but which are not currently offered either because there is no longer a supplier of this fabric (in the case of Vulcana rubber hemp), or because quality issues in later production batches forced discontinuation (in the case of Cork).

To get an impression of Conifer as a color, you can check the Conifer love! (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/5089-conifer-love.html) thread started by @Rocks, for an accurate color rendition of this color (in a Synapse backpack). You can also check @adalangdon's post (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/8834-some-greens-post87223.html#post87223) (#7) in the Some greens (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/8834-some-greens.html) thread for the color of the Forest pouch, which is close to the color of Conifer. (The picture of the Conifer Synapse is a more accurate rendition of this color, however.)
