    How likely will Olive 525 ballistic be in accessories

    Hello - I understand Olive is retiring. I also notice retired materials are used in accessories such as pouches and q kits.

    How likely will these be made out of a retired colour like Olive?

    Last week I emailed the TB Crew about using the 525/210 ballistic in Q-kits and other accessories. This is Cody's reply:

    "We haven't started making the Q-Kits in any of the lighter-weight Ballistics yet, and I haven't heard of any plans to do so yet. This might be something we look at in the future, but not so far. When we do, we'll update the stats on the Q-Kit page to reflect which fabric or fabrics we're currently using."

    So I am staying positive that we will indeed eventually see accessories in the new ballistic fabrics.

    Olive 525 is RETIRING? I LOVE that color! Since TB removed the "retiring" thread in the forums, I am having trouble locating these updates. Can anyone tell me where this information is? thanks!

    @anna2222, here is MatthewR's suggestion on keeping up to date on changes. It's post #11 of this thread:

    https://forums.tombihn.com/general-b...d-designs.html

    "Just like the Color List thread, this thread doesn't get updated very quickly. As much as we like the idea of these threads and would like to keep them going we just aren't able to update these in a timely manner. Since this is the case, we're going to go ahead and retire the retirement threads.

    For future retirement updates, subscribe to receive blog posts via email or check the blog every once in a while to keep abreast of those developments."

    I know quite soon after the new ballistic colors were introduced, Darcy said that Olive, Canyon, and Dawn were only temporary colors, which was great to know. It gave everyone a chance to order items in these colors knowing they were a limited run.

    Hi Pammy,

    Yes I did read that post from Matthew, but I am still not seeing anything on the blog. Is it somewhere on the blog and I am just missing it?

    Hi anna2222,

    I haven't seen anything lately on the blog about retired colors/items. Maybe others can weigh in if they have seen something I have missed.

    About Olive being retired, the Color List thread that was created a year ago, August 2017, revealed that Olive, Canyon, and Dawn were to be retired. And I have seen many threads lamenting their retirement. So in addition to reading the blog, skimming through the forum is where I find out the latest news. But I do agree with you that since the demise of the threads on retiring items and colors, it is more difficult to stay current with this information.

    That is helpful thanks. “Not yet” is a good sign but lack of plans to do so yet isn’t one. I wonder about things like 3D cubes. As they currently use retired colours on them.
