    Empire Builder and Zephyr Colors

    Hi Tom, Darcy, and Crew,

    I was wondering if the Empire Builder is being considered for new color combos? I am looking to replace an Imago I sadly lost to a mercury hazmat and am leaning toward upgrading to an Empire Builder or Zephyr.

    I am interested in the Steel version of the EB (outside and in) but would be more interested in a Crimson outside version (which would match my Aeronaut.) Any developments on expanding the Empire's colors?

    I read that Crimson at TB may be discontinued (say it ain't so!) but I can only guess that a very cool color is slated to replace it if that is the case. Might that color be introduced to the Empire Builder line?

    I'm holding off on ordering my EB/Z till I get a better idea of the color scheme options or even simply if there will be a change in schemes offered in the next few months. I am moving toward lighter loads in my carry. So the Zephyr may fit the bill. Decisions, decisions. :P
    Bags: Latest: Pop Tote and Shop Bag (large) ; also have a Co-Pilot, Super Ego (w/cork seatbelt); Aeronaut; Medium Cafe Bag; Large Cafe Bag; Brain Cell; Shop Bag small, (Steel); Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. Accessories: Oh yeah, bunches.
    Sadly Lost to Hazmat: An Imago in Steel/Cork & MCB in Linen/Olive.

    Yes! When we get our new 1050d ballistic nylon colors in, we will offer the Empire Builder in a color combination that uses at least one of the new colors. Crimson 1050d has been retired.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

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