    Oh man...I love this color! I am in so much trouble.

    If my wife finds out that I am even THINKING about another Tom Bihn bag I am going to be in SOOOO much trouble.

      Tuesday is the busiest day for me - and not at the computer! (The suspense!) Oh I was hoping for green - my favourite shade is "British Racing Green" - but Forest will do nicely, thank you!

      Any chance a Western Flyer will be released in a new shade?

        Gorgeous color!

        Any of the smaller bags like the Zephyr? I'd love to have this as a briefcase kind of bag, but the Tri-Star seems too large for that. Love the green / ultraviolet combo.

          Thanks for replying. I restrict my choices, lest I get carried away by the desire to own one of everything. (I read that, post–White House, Jacqueline Kennedy went shopping for a cashmere sweater and bought one in every color. I think it came in 60 colors.) I hope the new ballistic colors will be offered in small pouches.

            I'll include a few of the previous images with Hunter so that you can see what Darcy means by saying that the color is a darker green and has more blue in it. Below is a picture eristick posted of the Imago in Hunter/Cork/Sage from the thread on new Imago colors in May 2007. Below it is a picture from the blog of the customer and photographer Daniel Beltra with his Black/Hunter/Steel Super Ego.

            I have the same style Imago in eristick's picture. Solar dyneema actually would actually go pretty well with Hunter green. I found some old images of the Aeronaut in Hunter, but they don't show the color comparison as well. The more recent product pictures are just so much better! HTH.

              You guys have to stop introducing all these great colors - you're making me want to spend more money!

                Really like the new forest. I had pretty much all green luggage for awhile back when I was traveling a lot. It definitely stood out more from the normal blacks.

                  Oh very nice color. Had that been available when I started my collection I might have picked it. But I do like how my crimson stands out when I travel. Tempting to add this to my collection. I wish I wasn't so put off by eBay, I might trade some in and renew with a new color.

                    Forest is definitely the most interesting of the new colors. I'm glad Bihn introduced it.

                    One question, though:

                    Why are there no Forest travel bags (like the Aeronaut) with Solar dyneema interiors?

                    Just curious...

                      MtnMan, Darcy said this earlier in the thread:

                      It's unlikely that we will make Forest/Solar bags: after holding the two fabrics up together and much deliberation, we've concluded that these particular shades of green and yellow don't work well together. So far, Forest/Steel and Forest/Ultraviolet are the two Forest color combinations we plan to make.
                      Personally, I think they're wrong, but what do I know? Maybe if there was a groundswell of demand they'd change their minds, but I'm not counting on it. :-(

                        ^ Thanks for pointing that out. I missed Darcy's original comment.

                          LarryA,

                          Well, we should determine how many people will definitely buy what in that combination!

                          I would definitely buy a Forest/Solar Tristar.

                          I would also consider a Forest/Solar Co-Pilot.

                          Who else would definitely buy what?

                          Audrey

                            Do the revamped Tom Bihn forums support polling? If they do, you could start a poll-thread asking people to approve/disapprove certain color combinations.

                              Has a photo been taken yet of the new Black/Forest/Cayenne ID? I'm really curious about that color combination!

                                As soon as one exists, we'll photograph it. That should be within two weeks or so!
