    Aeronaut: Wasabi Interior with Island PCs?

    Am I crazy for thinking about an A30 Auberine/Wasabi, but using island packing cubes? Does anyone have any pictures of this combination?

    (Not sure if maybe the island interior + NWS is perhaps a better combination?)

    Personally I really like Aubergine + Island + NWS, but it's a matter of taste! Unfortunately I don't have anything Aubergine/Wasabi to take a photo with Island accessories right now, but maybe someone else can take a picture.

    I'm quite surprised at the lack of opinions on this! Am I in some kind of opinion-free vortex?

    Apparently so! I'm surprised too.

    I don't have any Island Aether to compare, but would it be helpful for me to take a picture of Aubergine/Wasabi next to Island 210 Ballistic or Island Halcyon?

    I don't like wasabi generally (even though I have some) but if I were coordinating with a Wasabi interior I would go with Wasabi or Violet or NWS cubes.

    I have aubergine / wasabi A45 and island packing cubes. Although, I confess, I use wasabi packing cubes in my aubergine / wasabi A45 and the island packing cubes in my husband's coyote / NWS A45. If NWS packing cubes had been available, I would have ordered those instead.

    I have a number of Aubergine / Wasabi bags (Maker's Bag, Western Flyer), and I like Island very much as a pleasant contrast. My current WF OC is a small Island, and I'm going to get a full-sized OC for my next trip, also in Island. It's bright enough to be seen, but still pleasant on the eyes. I find Ultraviolet just a bit too bright and a weird contrast to the Aubergine. Northwest Sky is also nice, but it reads more as a neutral than a contrast. When digging around in my bags, I wanted something that would pop out rather than fade into the background. YMMV.
