    Color List + News

    We offer a wide array of colors and fabrics, many of which are custom dyed and/or woven just for us. Some colors and color combinations are made only once, some are perennial. We use the best fabrics to engineer and build the best bags, and color is a place to cut loose and have some fun. We hope you’ll join the party!

    Below is a list of current colors and fabrics that are available in various bags. Our goal is to keep this list as updated as we can. Note that various changing factors (including some that are outside of our control) can influence whether a fabric is retired / sold out sooner than anticipated or later than anticipated. If you want a prompt answer about a color, fabric, or color combination, always feel free to [email protected]

    To determine which fabrics a particular bag is available in, visit its product page and look at the Materials section on the right side.

    To determine which colors a particular bag is available in, visit its product page and note which colors are In Production and Available; if the color you’re interested in isn’t there, it probably won't be made within the next six months (or possibly ever).

    In the list below, some colors have (retiring) or (retired) next to them. This is our way of giving you a heads-up when/if a color is going away or has gone away.

    (retiring) = A color that we won’t be having made again. We may have very little of it left, or we may have enough to make one or more batches of bags in that color before it’s gone for good, or we may have quite a bit of the fabric left but want to give everyone as much advance heads-up of its retirement as possible. We generally allocate a retiring color or fabric to the bags and color combinations it is most popular in.

    (retired) = A color that has recently retired and is now only available in a few bags or no bags at all. Eventually, we will remove a retired color from this list entirely.

          This is an early heads up that the two Aether fabrics below will be retiring around the end of this year.

          Aether
          Wasabi (Retiring late-2019 or early-2020)
          Violet (Retiring late-2019 or early-2020)

            We've decided to retire the following colors. The (timeline) next to the fabric name is our best estimate as to how much longer we'll be able to offer the color in various bags and accessories.

            Nordic 400 Halcyon (2 months)
            Iberian 200 Halcyon (2 months)
            Wasabi 200 Halcyon (4-6 months)

            This news may come as a surprise, especially because Iberian and Wasabi have been around for so long. Our current plan is to offer a rotating "limited edition" color of 200d Halcyon in the future (we don't yet have timeline on the new color yet, or even what it'll be!), and it's possible that in a couple of years Iberian or Wasabi are brought back to be that rotating color. In the meantime, though, we look at this as an opportunity to experiment with new colors and give people more variety/options. Without retiring some existing options, we couldn't make space (like, literal physical space!) for new colors.

                420D HT Nylon Classic Parapack in Steel is expected to retire in late 2019 or early 2020. Navy Parapack will be around for the next while; bags made with Navy Parapack exteriors will be lined with 210d Cloud once the Steel Parapack is out.

                Also, a clarification on Wasabi and Iberian: these two 200d Halcyon colors are in semi-retirement. That means we plan to bring them back occasionally and other times we'll rotate them out to make room for a new color or other previous of 200d Halcyon.
