    Not really about fashion.

    But I do not see any need to coordinate colors - and in reality, having different colors combos for my UQ and my two TQs makes it a snap to see just what I am grabbing.

    Chronologically, my purchases from Hammock Gear were colored as follows:

    3/4 3-S UQ: Green, to match my CJH as closely as possible.
    3-S TQ: Coyote Brown, as I liked the color and didn't want to duplicate.
    Summer TQ: Black w/silver lining ("every cloud has a silver lining...")

    Camo. Even have camo straps I got from Paul at AHE. I 'stealth hang' a bit, and the need for blending in to the environment is there. Am actually looking at having a white and grey-ish hammock, and matching TQ and UQ made for winter stealth hangs.

    Good for hunting season, great for stealth hangs in the odd places I find myself now and then. Plus, as an old 'Nam Recon Rat, I like hiding in the woods and making sure I see everything/everyone before they see me. Hehehehe....

    +1 on the earth tones and/or camo for me. Camo is usually my 1st choice, after that, greens and browns...

    i have a burrow on order and i originally ordered a black/grey TQ to match my Phoenix.
    but then stormcrow announced that 7D was available so i opted for the upgrade but now my TQ will be all black...i guess it will still match my UQ

    I voted that I coordinate....
    BUT... that really just means I WOULD coordinate if I could afford to buy what I want!
    Most of my gear is a hodgepodge of stuff I've picked up by grabbing good deals where I found them, regardless of color.
    Give me a blank check to Hammockgear.com, OES and the like... I could look really sweet out in the woods.
