    Great Color Combinations

    I thought I'd start a thread, where we could collect Color Combos that work. I know, that everyone feels different about colors, but if we collect enough combos, everybody can make an informed decision for him/her self. Most of the pictures in this initial post I have posted before in some other context. But there is one new even so the combo is an easy match:
    (French Blue and Gray - both cordura)

    (Gray and Azure - both cordura)
    Great Color Combinations-gray-snow-2-jpg

    (French Blue - cordura and Aubergine - ballistic)

    (French Blue - cordura , Ultraviolett - dyneema, Steel - dyneema, Navy - ballistic)

    (Forest - ballistic and Steel - ballistic)

    Ilkyway, I like your new quote! I don't seem to have any pictures, but I also love French blue with Iberian. Your photos are fantastic, but my all-time favorite is the gray and azure in the snow.

    I was sorting through old planer books and there I had that quote. I try to "do" your first quote as often as I can. I think it is the best way to deal with fears. They tent to grow, if fed.

    Iberian is such a vibrant color. I love it too. But I have to dedicated it to medical-stuff in all my setups, so I do not think of it, as a color (does this make sense?). But you are right, it likes to sit next to French Blue.

    I love the greens, but if you're asking for a favourite *combination* it's red and purple for me. Pics aren't pretty but here goes:

    I really like the Steel/Dyneema or Black/Dyneema with a solar interior. It’s sort of like business on the outside party on the inside.

    I'm in the middle of schoolwork, so I don't have time for photos, but I love the Nordic/UV of my Western Flyer, Black/UV, and Cocoa/Olive. Those are probably my favorite combos that I own. I would love, love, love to have Aubergine/UV in anything I can get my hands on as well!

    Oh, and I think Navy/Wasabi is delightful, too!

    It looks... tasty, doesn't it? Linen- white chocolate. Cocoa- cocoa powder. Coyote- toffee/caramel. Yum!

    I have a question for you. I'm looking for a SCB as an easy to reach bag, when I'm carrying a loaded backpack.
    The linen/navy combination looks great, but does linen go well with grey?
    Thanks for the help.
