    I have ended up with just 1 repeat color in our family of Yeoman. We have Aubergine and Coyote minis and Navy and Steel smalls presently. I have pre-ordered a Black medium and an Aubergine large. I almost did a Verde large instead, but I have a different brand duffle in a similar color, and I wanted to be able to tell that one apart quickly. The repeat Aubergine is because that's my wife's preferred color, and it won't be hard to distinguish from her mini!

    My preferred color is Navy, and that's the color of my A45. Easy to tell the difference between the A45 and small YD, even in the same color.

    My wife also has an Aubergine A30, but again, there's little risk of confusion as to which bag is which since mini-YD, A30, and large-YD are quite distinct.

    The dog's stuff will go in the Coyote or Steel, depending on how long the trip is, and how much food we're bringing for her. Other random shared stuff can go in either of those or the medium Black or large Aubergine YDs.

    I ordered a small Navy, top go with the mini and large Navy we already have at home. Somehow a small Burnt Orange one also made its way into the cart.

    I like to assign colors to people, so I got Aubergine and Burnt Orange minis for my kids last year.

    thepatternslave - sounds like you need an orange as a gift for your son and a defensive maneuver to distract from one you keep for yourself

    I ordered a mini verde and a small aubergine. I also wanted a mini burnt orange but then I realized they were scooby doo colors and it might be a bit much. Don't want folks to think I'm one of those meddling kids.

    I want another bag but am stumped. Another small or another mini? They're so useful!

    Then there's the question of what color... burnt orange or olive? red blend? A fun color also means most of the other people in my house are less likely to use my nice bag - though any orange would be at risk of my son snagging it.

    gah!! I'm spoiled for choice.

    1050d Ballistic Nylon Burnt Orange has a really nice sheen that you don’t see as much in the 525d Ballistic Nylon fabric. I was first really made aware of this when I got my Small Yeoman Duffel in Burnt Orange (I got the Mini Yeoman Duffel in Steel). If you like these textures and colors, you might consider getting a Pocket Pouch in one or more of these colors (They have Burnt Orange with Island, Northwest Sky and Wasabi, although Verde is currently sold out),When I ordered my Parental Unit, I added a Pocket Pouch in Burnt Orange / Northwest Sky, and a second one in Verde/Solaris.

    This way of doing multiquote will only work when all the posts you want to quote appear on the same page (you’d have to reset the number of posts per page to get some of these together)

    Go ahead and press the “quote” button for the posts you want to quote. Let’s say you pressed 3 quote keys, all on the same web page. At the top of the web page you’ll see a Post Reply (3) key ( or however many posts you chose to quote). Press that button and all three of the posts you selected will show up quoted i the reply area. You can go ahead and delete any parts of the quoted sections that you want to leave out.

    HTH

    bijoux and G42 you have convinced me to go rainbow! b1gsky it helps that I love more than one (maybe all?) color.

    Aeon, I definitely see the appeal of a matching set and the crispness of black. As an aside, I think that you just don’t use/need colors as part of your organization system. You likely have some other device that works better for you to categorize and group things!

    theswiftbiker, I love the PBJ tower!! That is amazing!! And you can just go big/small
    color And are still differentiated. So great!

    Happily perusing the yeoman colors

    Thx. I missed that.

    Thank you! Ugh, I checked the blog post twice and still missed it somehow. I feel dumb, lol.

    And I asked about limitations because that was an issue on a past preorder for a few of the fabrics. Hopefully it won't be this time around because I may need to order closer to the end of the time period.

    Darcy, how long will this pre-order run, and are there limited quantities of any of the Yeoman duffels? Thanks!

    I did alternating colors for my yeoman duffels. Aubergine mini, coyote small, aubergine medium, and coyote large. It makes a big pb and j tower and helps me easily identify which bag is which size.
