    Perhaps dark orange in low light, to a golden near yellow in bright light! Like the flower!
    This sounds like something I can definitely get behind.
    Current set-up: Black Dyneema/Solar MCB, Iberian 3DOC, COWs in Solar & Steel.

    Wishing for more color variety in Dyneema. Can we get a blue again?

      I know I know, it's a tall order, but hey, one can wish! ^.^
      Iridescent blue like on a dragonfly. Or a fade top to bottom or whatever direction... yellows to oranges or from the blues to the purples. Or have it change color like a mood ring. Or customize our own dyneema bags like Nike does with shoes. Eeeeks. I would qualify as a hoarder if that option existed.

      I think I'd like some iridescent nordic high-tops.

        I never really heard exactly why colors like nordic and solar were being l eliminated, but can only assume they didn’t sell. While many of us on this forum love the bright and unique colors my assumption is that the general TB customer probably just wants basic black.

          I'm pretty sure they are being retired because the supply is running out and they can't get more easily/soon.

            Teal and orange dyneema would rock my world! Tonight I will be dreaming about aubergine and teal. Together at last.

                I would love to see a return of Punch - I've mentioned it elsewhere, but a kiwi/punch Swift or Little Swift? How awesome would that be? I wouldn't even care what color the lining was (well, maybe a little, Iberian would clash).

                I also like the idea of a new bright Dyneema - an orange or light teal/aqua color. I have been embracing orange lately - how about a burnt orange swift or cafe bag with an aqua Dyneema lining?

                  After spending so much time at the Mothership with two enablers today, this is my wish list for color/bags:

                  1. Safari dyneema, both weights, for outside of bags and linings.
                  2. A cantelope colored dyneema for linings.
                  3. Silvery grey parapack on small cafe bags and SEs (with safari or cantelope dyneema linings)
                  4. A PCSB modified, so now a bonafide EDC, in cordura, because there are so many more colors available. The size of this bag is great. It just needs some inside pockets ALA the SE on one side and a zippered pocket on the opposite side. There should be MANY O rings inside.
                  5. Because so many of us like the location of the water pouch and the organizational pockets of the CP and Pilot, there should be a larger version still. Size it up for more versatility.

                    I have an LCB in Cocoa/Wasabi (cordura). I love the bright interior, and would like a similarly bright interior on an MCB or SCB (or both!). But the only non-dyneema interiors that are available are Steel, Navy, and Olive. Ugh, so dull!

                    I don't like the cross-hatching on the dyneema (I think it looks cheap), so that's out for me.

                    I held off buying earlier because of the awful QR code tags. Those seem to be gone (except possibly on the LCB, where they still show in some of the photos), but now all the nice colors are gone.

                    TB just won't take my money!

                      +1 on this. I have not been a fan of Steel in any fabric, but the Steel Parapack on the Guide's Pack is absolutely gorgeous! It is a lighter, silvery grey, as @monkeylady noted, and I would love it on an SE, SCB or DLBP.

                        more green - conifer, forest, kiwi, wasabi....just as long as its green....
                        never skate faster than your guardian angel can fly....black and gold til I'm dead and cold....
                        be nice - until it's time to not be nice.......what separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize...

                          I am just thinking...more visible colours like orange, red and yellow for backpacks used for hiking like the Guides Pack. I have always been told to use highly visible backpacks/jackets when hiking..in case you get injured or lost it increases your chances of being found...also quite a lot of hikers here in NZ have been accidentally shot by deer/pig hunters. Something to consider...?

                            Bike riders would appreciate brighter colors, too. Or loops through which we can thread Glowire. Or more hanging spots for Guardian Lights. Or reflective piping. Optional thread-through areas like on the Ego so that we can add a reflective colored stripe to otherwise stealthy bags.

                            I get that TB isn't directly marketing to people who ride bikes, but I think that just a few mods can make travel and hiking bags safer for bike folk.

                              That's mine! That's my Synapse!

                              ETA: it really is that pretty. Even at 2 years old it's still an awesome bag and a great color.

                                I would love to see more color on the inside! Steel and Navy for interiors on the cafe bags!?!?! It makes it so hard to see the inside of your bag with the dark colors. Get the Iberian linings in there! Or the brighter cordura colors! Ooh....Wouldn't a linen/Iberian cafe bag be uber-kewl?!??!
