    hrmeeks - the side-by-side helps a lot! It confirms what I thought about the two colors. My medium cafe bag is steel/sapphire but I don't have anything in indigo (yet!).

    I have a Brain Bag in Sapphire. I just received an Indigo Aeronaut last week. I took pictures of the two bags side-by-side. The colors are certainly different, but I think the difference is difficult to see in the photo. The indigo is a deeper color than the sapphire and is slightly purple. They are both beautiful!

    Brain Bag in Sapphire, Side Effect in Indigo

    I just got my Brain Bag and Side Effect yesterday. I am not very good at taking pictures, but here are a few of both colors side by side. The Brain Bag is in Sapphire, and the Side Effect is in Indigo. The Indigo is a deeper, richer blue with a hint of purple there. Both are very vibrant and jewel-like. I am delighted with both, and anxiously awaiting my Smart Alec in Black/Indigo/Solar! I decided to go back to backpacks instead of messenger bags this year, so my Super Ego & ID will be sitting in the closet for a while. Anyway, I hope this helps give you an idea of the color difference.

    And I like your "old" black one

    I've got some travel sketched out in the next several months (San Jose by air, cross-country and back by car, Chicago by air, family reunion in Massachusetts by car, wedding in Vermont by car from the east coast, to and back from Seattle by air -- midway through the east-coast-by-car), and the black Aeronaut will be my main bag. Not a road warrior / jet-setter like the people who get paid $200k to fly around and "consult," but it'll be a few miles.

    Something about "colorful" colors just bugs me in bags -- nice how things work out, eh?

    I couldn't take it any more Indigo/Solar Tri-Star and a slew of organizer pouches (and the new 3D Cube!) coming my way. That indigo is just too nice-looking...

    Try the All Bags page, http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/CTGY/TBP. Looking at that just now, the Brain Bag is shown in Sapphire and the Tri-Star is in Indigo. One right above the other as I look at it, hope it is same for you.

    Cheers.

    I saw the Tristar in Indigo today, and it is absolutely gorgeous. It is a deep blue with just a touch of royal purple to it. And the solar is the perfect foil to it. I'm now really second guessing my decision to go steel/solar...
