    New Cordura colors? (Storm Blue)

    There are key straps in Storm and Sapphire on the website now, and now I see Storm as a pre-order option for the Medium Cafe Bag. What's up with that? Are new Cordura colors on their way into the TB product lineup? Please oh please, someone say yes....

    Storm is back! For now. We don't have any new-new Cordura colors planned.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

        Check on Flickr. I searched for "tom bihn storm" and saw a Storm/Cayenne Cafe Bag. It looks like a slate blue to me, but my laptop screen probably doesn't do it justice.

          Storm is a light blue color. Take a look at these pictures from the Blog
          The second link is probably more useful, because it shows how Storm compares with Navy and Sapphire. That "Blues Bag" was a very popular color combination for the Imago, BTW. You can read the Suggest new Color Combinations for the Imago thread that gave rise to it.

            I have a Storm/Sapphire Small Cafe Bag.

            Storm is a light blue-gray, more blue than gray like a light denim with a tiny undertone of gray to make it more unique and sophisticated.

            Sapphire is a jewel tone blue just like the stone.


            I have a Brain Bag and Swift in Sapphire, the Swift other color is Black so both bags match perfectly.

            I usually wear blue/denim when I travel.

            Unfortunately, I missed the last of the Sapphire Kits (silly me)



            In case you haven't seen, there are still Cafe Bags available in Punch




            The picture above is the most accurate description of Punch, it is a beautiful strawberry color.

            The top of the flap is the closest to real life color, definitely a cool pink, no hint of orange.


            I have a Large and Small Cafe Bags in Punch/Steel as well as a Brain Bag and 3D Cube.

            Unfortunately, I missed the Plum/Punch Swift and the Organizer Wallet in Punch.

            It is very unique, I bought outfits in that color to match the bags.



            Speaking of wardrobe, my purple outfits are very happy with my Ultraviolet recent acquisitions but my teal outfits are asking for Conifer (well... that is what I tell my better half anyway)

              Thanks, @backpack! The comparison of blues is very helpful, as is your description of Punch. I'm tempted, sooooo tempted to order another Cafe Bag in Punch now. I think it would be a fun color for summer.

                    Ooh, this is exciting! I can definitely use more colors for my key straps (I currently use 4 in the main compartment of my Small Cafe Bag). I've also been wanting to get a Medium Cafe Bag, and the return of Storm just might put me over the edge (though Conifer is still very tempting).

                    Darcy, I see that Navy/Wasabi is no longer a color combo for the Small Cafe Bag. Any idea if it's gone forever or just gone for now? Or if there might be one more in that color combo hiding somewhere? (I regularly regret that I chose the safer Black/Wasabi option when I got my Small Cafe Bag.)

                      I noticed it was gone, too. I got a Navy/Wasabi Large Cafe Bag and it is lovely. I was hoping to add its little brother to my collection.

                        Storm/Cocoa

                        There used to be a Swift in Storm/Cocoa. I'm still kicking myself for not getting that when I could. Good color combination to ressurect....

                          I like the brightness of the pink Punch but a little goes a long way. I have the 3D clear cube in Punch with a Wasabi interior. It's like a perfect ode to a watermelon. Would I want that combo as a cafe bag? Probably not. But, I'm still hoping for a Steel/Punch cafe bag. A Punch interior would be awesome.

                            Thank you for the photos, description, links, comments about the storm and punch.

                            If storm is resurrecting in the medium cafe bag, perhaps the navy/storm/sapphire Imago will make an encore? My niece would be joyfully washing my car for days and days for one of those

                              Awesome! I can't wait until my kids are old enough to barter extra chores for things they want!
