    The new colors are wonderful! Great updates I think.

    (Although something in Plum would be good, too. *grins*)

    Cordially,
    Adi

    The more pictures, the better, go for it.

    If the cork was the back panel fabric it wouldn't be in the wind much, it would mostly be in the low pressure area on my back. The top edge of the flap style bags nearest my shoulder is what takes the beating. I'll most likely get the newest Buzz regardless, but in cork would put me over the moon.
    I love my small org. pocket in the fabric (cork) and almost daily someone tries to swipe it.
    Seeing an Imago in cork irritates my bag jealousy to no end, the flagrant bag pr0n photo's by you do not help =)
    Um, duh, wear the Imago backwards?

    I think the cork bags look really nice. The Navy/Cork especially. I am not a big fan of olive, though, so I would prefer it with something like a steel inside, maybe even crimson. I did end up with a small olive organizer pouch that I think looks ok, but it wouldn't have been my first choice and I wouldn't have wanted the whole inside of my bag to be that.

    I love the steel/crimson and the sapphire/steel as well. It makes me sad to see the crimson/steel taking so long to sell out of the old style (unless I am way off here). I love the colors, but I one of the reasons I didn't get it was because I prefer the swooshy design.

    ETA: Steel/cork/deep blue is a big winner in my book too.

    Alex (TB Shipping Lead) tied a Cork Organizer Pouch to his bike, which he rides to and from work everyday, to test the durability of the cork fabric. He rode in the rain, wind, dust, and sun, and the entire pouch, including the cork fabric, held up just fine. It was definitely dirty, but not damaged.

    What you'll see is that the cork fabric gets slightly darker as it ages. It's a slow process and not that noticeable, and I think it adds more character to the fabric.

    All, sorry to take this so far off topic.

    Thax, if the wind causes a problem with the flap on the Imago, wouldn't it subject the cork to a bit more wear-and-tear than is to be expected?

    Or perhaps not. I was a bit worried about the durability of the cork, but it seems to be holding its own, and I can be a bit hard on my bags. Darcy, any longer-term anecdotal data on the cork?

    Oh, note that the redesign of the Imago strap means that it can be worn higher on the back (this is how I carry my bag all the time) and secured tight with the waist strap.

    Hmmm, I have used a few Timbuk2's and my Super Ego once (scary) on my motorcycle (Ducati Monster). I mean no offence to the folks at Rider, but thusfar the only bag I can comfortably use on the bike is that Chrome bag, it sits very high and can be snugged down.
    But the flap is the thing I hate, since I have a forward lean on the bike the flap is exposed to wind and thusly starts to wear =).
    The Buzz lacks this irritating flap, sits high on the back and is very sleek.

    Hey! The Imago was recommended as a great bag for motorcycle riding in Rider magazine.

    Great pictures!!

    I've been using a Navy/Cork/Olive Imago for the past month and a half. I've received so many compliments about it when using it out on the town.

    This should go well with your sage Aeronaut (grin).
    It does, but without being too matchy-matchy. Here's another photo of her wantonly flashing the camera.

    Even my hard-to-impress boyfriend was impressed by the cork. Now, in theory, sage may sound like an odd choice, but in contrast with the more saturated green Hunter color, the sage interior looks cool and silvery. The overall effect is striking, yet calming.

    That looks really nice! I've often noted that colors look more striking for these bags "in person" (and sometimes in other pictures) than you might think. That's why having lots of forum and flicker posts helps. The interior does look striking. This should go well with your sage Aeronaut (grin).

    True, there are more color combinations in Cordura. And in Ballistic Nylon I'd prefer crimson/steel/steel with the new curvy design flap to steel/crimson/crimson. Although it's not a bright color combination (outside), I think that black/cork/wasabi would be a wicked combination in Ballistic Nylon. I'm already thinking about which style kits would go nicely with these bags.

    And I guess I know what the deep blue looks like for the Steel/Cork/Deep Blue interior since my Snake Charmer is this color, but it's still nice to see the color combinations with the bag open.
