    Colored Key Straps

    How about some key straps made from the cordura colors used in the pouches? I have several pouches attached to the black keystraps, and it would be easier to know which ones to pull up out of the bag if they were color-coded to match whichever pouch I wanted. This might be a way to use up extra scrap fabric, too.

    Not a bad notion. I'd go for a few of those, myself.

      At the very least, one other color would be helpful. I just bought a couple key straps not thinking that I would use them all that much. They have been much more handy than I thought.

      One or two other solid colors would be nice.

        We've discussed this before, and it's definitely something that will happen - but not until well into 2010.
        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

          I would LOVE some bright color straps! (Not a big fan of black, not that it's stopped me from buying about a million of them! LOL!)

            I'll add my vote for colored key straps -- it would definitely help organization.

              I vote yes on the colored key straps. This is a great idea for those times when I have multiple items keystrapped to an o-ring. Color coding would b a boon!

                    Darcy,

                    While you're making them another color, would it be possible to alter the stitching at the top of each different color strap so instead of having to look (or for those who can't), you can feel the top of the strap and id it that way?
