    Pictures of Olive 525 and Verde 1050?

    Hi folks,
    Can anyone post a picture of the new Olive 525 ballistic next to Verde 1050 ballistic? I'm trying to plan my next purchase :-)

    Hello @bermudajes,

    I am too thinking whether to get Black or Olive Synapse 19, with Canyon lining.

    Not exactly what you asked.
    But perhaps, this could serve as a reference to you. Because it did, for me.

    Do you also see the Grass? It is such a great green color too, as a lining.

    Thanks, @weirdguy.

    I actually have a couple items in the Olive 525 and posted pictures of my MCB on the Thoughts on the New Colours thread, so these might be helpful for you!

    I'm really just curious as to how Verde compares to Olive. I might just have to order something in Verde to find out for myself

    Thanks @bermudajes,

    I do have a Verde A30 but not others Olive.
    What you think of your Olive MCB? Is it a light green? Or darker shade? I understand under lighting, the shade could be slightly different. But what you think in terms of overall?

    I don't have 1000d Cordura Olive. After seeing @moriond's DLBC Olive Photo, I really like its darker leaf green and a bit sheen to its.

    Could Olive 525 Ballistic is somewhat like Wasabi Cordura 1000d (of earlier fabric).
    The studio photo of Olive 525 Ballistic looks quite light green.

    I prefer the rich color of the verde over the olive but like the softness of the olive 525 ballistic.

    They look quite similar! Verde and 525 Olive.

    They do look similar until you hold them side-by-side. There's a luster to the verde

    Thanks you!
    I think @bermudajes will be amazed that they are almost similar. I really like the luster of the verde or any ballistic 1050 HT.

    Do you also mean that Olive Ballistic 525 is slightly more matte (Antonyms of Luster) than the Verde?

    Yes, that's the perfect way to describe the olive 525 ballistic, a matte look and feel to the fabric
    Thank you!

    Thanks, @RDR3! I thought the Verde would be significantly lighter than the Olive - the pictures were very helpful!
