    Has the ballistic Navy color changed over the years?

    Hello all, I'm new here!
    I don't own any products yet, but I'm strongly considering the A30 in Navy ballistic. I'm not too keen on the color, but then I saw this video posted by a member here. I realize this video is quite old, so maybe the color used to be lighter blue, and these days they went with a darker "navy" blue.

    Any insight? Is it just the way light plays off this fabric? The blue in this video is gorgeous, and is what I'm hoping these bags still look like after some use. Thanks!

    Navy is a tricky one in photos. I think it might be the way the light shines against the Ballistic nylon, but to me most colors appear much lighter in the site photos than in person. I have one Navy item and it is really dark navy.

    You can ask TB to send you swatches/fabric samples of any of their current colors and fabrics, for free! I find that helps a lot. Good luck.

    I posted a couple of videos with a new style Navy Ballistic Aeronaut 45. I filmed then in natural light so hopefully they give a good sense of the Navy colour.
