    Shade of UltraViolet?

    I really like the verde, and I want to like it with an ultraviolet lining, but I can't tell quite what shade it actually is. The pictures of the Western Flyer and Tristar make it look really pretty pink, but I saw another picture here on the forums that make it look more similar to the aubergine purple.
    I'm wondering what it looks like in person... I don't think I could deal with that expanse of pink! But the more purple shade would go really nicely with green. Smilie

    Welcome to the Forums @Celimlodyn

    You might find this thread showing different colours/fabrics against a Pantone colour deck useful

    The UV is shown in this specific post:

    In my head, ultraviolet is a violet so it's red + blue....the more red side of purple

    I think it does complement Verde well
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    Hi @Celimlodyn ,
    I'm going to supplement @G42 's answer by sending you to some pictures in older threads. In Ultraviolet-pink or purple? (from Sept 2015) I answered a similar question by excerpting pictures of some of the most color accurate photos of Ultraviolet on the forums: (You can read a quoted post in the context of its original thread by clicking on the arrow at the top right of the quoted section):

I'm going to point you to some of @Ilkyway's pictures of items in Ultraviolet Dyneema, since I think these are some of the most color-accurate representations of the color in photos taken under a range of lighting conditions. Also, she uses Ultraviolet Cord Pulls on her bags, which are also close in color to Ultraviolet Dyneema:

    Take a look at the photos in the start of her Smart Alec versus Synapse 25 -> no endresult thread:

    The shop-bag in the side pocket of the Synapse 25 is darker and more shadowed on top, and lighter at the bottom. You can also see the (de-focused) UV Dyneema lining of the Grey/UV Synapse 25 in the background, and the cord pulls on the bag:


    Here's the same UV Shop Bag outside of the pocket, again with different amounts of incident lighting:

    (Aside: I also carry a Shop Bag in the same front side pocket of Synapse 25 or Synapse 19, but I just roll it and don't secure it with a keystrap).

    Here's one of @Ilkyway's pictures of the Standard Spiff Kit (UV Dyneema) in the bottom pocket of a Synapse 25. Again, you can see the color under a range of lighting (brighter at the left, more shadowed at the right), and with cord pulls. This picture was excerpted from one of her posts in a review thread on the Standard Spiff Kit



    For a slightly less accurate UV color picture of the same model Spiff Kit in a Pilot, see my picture:


    The colors are close, but I'd say that @Ilkyway's color rendition of the UV Dyneema accessory is more accurate.

    The combination of Verde with Ultraviolet Halcyon lining has been used with a lot of accessories; you can take a look at my post (#7, dated 09-28-2017), which includes some pictures of the Side Kick combinations (in Verde/Ultraviolet). Note that these are product page pictures, so the Ultraviolet appears lighter than in real life, and slightly pinker)

    Thank you very much. Smilie It's helpful to be able to see a larger section of the UV. It doesn't look nearly as pink as I was afraid of!
