    Maybe it's just me, but I'm not getting the picture.

      No it is not just you. I can only see it, when clicking on it. We had the same thing earlier this day. Moriond had worked some magic I hope this time around I'll understand what she actually did.

        Since I'm on my phone, no real option to click. Touch doesn't do it.

          Sorry, It's not showing up for me even on click, since I wasn't on line and reading posts early enough to catch @flaneuse's posted attachment, though I did read the earlier request by @bchaplin. If the image isn't there when you read it, there's nothing you can do to retrieve it.

            Hey, moriond, I'm sure that photo will get fixed eventually. In the meantime, I looked at some that you posted earlier, and they were very helpful. So maybe you can help me answer this question.

            For someone whose (ahem) three pairs of travel pants are black (1) and khaki colored, (2) and whose other bags are mostly Nordic, aubergine and black dyneema, would you recommend linen or grey in a cafe bag?

              If we're voting, I'd say GREY.

I love my CoPilot as an EDC, and in general strongly prefer bags with zippers, but do feel that it has a "luggagy" appearance. I started debating again on a better choice as a touring bag for Europe. I wonder how the linen or grey colored MCB's would look on a woman; I had a black one many years ago, but never quite got comfortable with it.

                Last year I had great success using my Daylight Backpack on a tour of Israel, and the plan was to take that again, but I keep wondering, after the recent discussions, if that will be a problem for museums in Germany and Belgium.
                Wondering if you've looked at the PU. While it looks big, it hangs very nicely against one's hip. Additionally, i am able to fit a SE in a front gusset pocket, leaving the large center pocket free for tablets, jackets, etc. I think Tamica did an excellent review, but I'm not yet skilled enough here to retrieve it.

                  Gray would be my vote too. Linen has quite a greenish tint to it and therefor would work with your khaki pants I guess but the grey would go flawlessly with each of your colors. (That at least is how I see it.)

                  PS: The picture is gone for me too now. So I should have graped it earlier when I could still see it? Maybe flaneuse will post it again?

                    I vote for grey too. Emphatically! Linen is an earthy, wet sand color and probably won't go with the Nordic so well, thought I think it'd be ok with aubergine. Both colors are lovely neutrals, though.

                      I agree with grey. Linen does go a bit better with khaki (I was pulling out my pants to check), but grey goes better with your other bags, and as a neutral color should be OK with khaki. Linen works better for instances when I want to have bags go with my hemp Little Swift, that I carry a lot.

                          Newbie in Georgia completely understands because it takes a week, sometimes more, for my stuff to arrive. I hate that the FJN is on backorder until late this month which means I probably won't see mine until early next month.

                              I vote grey too. I am kicking myself for not getting a grey DLBC rather than my tried and true dyneema. It is a gorgeous color.

                                So strange that the photo dissapeared. Let me try again.
