    The knew Webbing Keystraps

    I was furtunate to get to use the knew webbing keystraps ahead of time. I have some thoughts and pictures to share, so everybody can make an informed desition about these:

    I love the colourfull Halcyon/Dyneema Keystraps as most gear (at least a big majority) from most companys come in black and I do like colours. But the black webbing Keystraps you get with every bag from Tom Bihn are much more plyable and do not have their own minds about bending wich ever way they please. I have never thought about this, but as soon as I held the knew ones in my hand it was: best of both world: colour + webbing. I also have two Cordura Keystraps and they are way thicker than both the Halcyon and the Webbing Keystraps. So Keystrapswise, I feel, the knew ones are the best so far :-)

    An attempt to show each colour Keystrap with the coresponding Halcyon. I also put in Steel as I know many of us still have Steel interior bags or accessories. Notice how the grey Keystraps seem to adapt to both the light colourd Northwest Sky and the Steel.

    Another colour that is well represented in my personal things is purple, so here a comparision of UV Halcyon, Plum Cordura and the knew purple webbing Keystrap:

    Keep in mind, that colours are deciving on screen, so many factors play into how they are represented on your device.

          Thanks you so much for the very yummy pictures, yummy because they remind me of ice cream flavors.

          Wasabi sounds much better when it is Pistachio, ice cream.

          Raspberry, blueberry, cassis and boysenberry, prune, pomegranate, cranberry more flavors than colors but UV, Steel, and yet to be aquired Island and Northwest Sky look extremely beautiful!
