    Bring Back Zest!!!

    I have never been a gigantic orange fan. However, I was perusing old posts and saw Ilkyway's mock up photos of Nordic Halycon bags with the "new" colors for interiors. I think, without question, the the best combo was the one with a Zest interior. It was awesome! I would have to buy some new bags if that combination was available now.

        Where were all you Zest supporters when the original poll to choose the next 200d Halcyon color to be added was run? (Just kidding. I think Zest is a great color. But they did give everyone on the forums an opportunity to weigh in with a vote.)

          I voted for zest and sadly lost, doesn't mean I have to give up the dream. Zest just seems to make everything more beautiful.

            My favourite used to be Solar; but then Zest happened. I only have one item - a Travel Tray - in Zest, but it's a lovely happy colour which brightens up my day. It's also very practical - bright and eye catching, and reflects enough light so that I can spot things in the tray. It's a great pity that only one of the limited edition colours could be retained... Wasabi is pleasant enough, but has no zing; Northwest Sky is very practical, but boring grey. Island is pretty, but...

            Sigh.
            Zest zest ZeSt zEsT ZEst zeST ZEST! Doesn't the name just zing off the tongue, evoking sense memories of tart, tangy-sweet oranges?

              How does Zest differ from Monarch? Photos, please. I've already read the words.

                  I don't have anything in Zest but I do have a organizer pouch in Monarch. To me Monarch is tomato-colored.

                    I LOVE zest. I voted for it but, sadly, zest lost out to Island.
                    While Island is a lovely color, Zest wows you; it is a bright, cheerful color that just pops.
                    Please bring back ZEST!!!

                        I voted for Zest too. Monarch was my second choice. Solar is great too. I have an item in each color and Zest and Monarch are my favorites.

                          I keep seeing all these photos, but I think sometimes they just confuse me even more. For instance, in some pics, Nordic looks very bright, but in others it looks dark. Same with Navy. I can't tell if they're bright blue, deep royal blue, or true navy.

                            I know just what you mean. I feel that way about Plum. I guess I just need to order something and see how I like it. Re. the blues, I have a MSB in Navy and it is a very beautiful blue. It has a lot of color for navy, if that makes any sense. (I believe that is Cordura) It is a perfect bag color IMO.

                              Ask the TB crew about fabric samples! (Especially if it's a current color)
                              They sent me a swatch of Island with one of my orders so I could see what the material looked like.
