    NEW Silnylon color suggestions

    Guys/gals, I've been getting a lot of requests for different colors of sil lately, so I wanted to start a thread as a central place to collect ideas. Here are a couple of the suggestions I've gotten so far:

    1. White
    2. Olive or coyote brown
    3. Sand/tan

    I'd love to get some input from everyone on what color(s) they'd like to see. Feel free to second and third a comment too. I'll post some that I come across as well. Bonus points if you list the pantone number or hex code! Thanks a lot.
    - Kyle

    I like white, making socks from white for my family. More light, less clostrophobic. Also like camo, nearly any camo but Multicam and MARPAT are my favorites.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I don't get the craze for hiding in the woods!

    EDITED (after Moderator demand) Of course, with all those hikers concerned about protecting themselves, perhaps it's a good idea!
    Anyway, I'm tired of camo, brown, tan, grey and navy blue.

    What about some happy (or 'rescue') colors like bright yellow or lime green/yellow?
    Red/orange can be a bit tiresome, but would be a good option for 2-tone tarps and tent flys.

    I want that rescue helo to find me!

    Ok, back to the regular scheduled program....

    earth tones or subdued colors.
    They have seem to have fallen out of fashion to rescue colors though.
    Im thinking that having one side subdued and one side super bright is pretty cool and would be a huge hit.
    Probably easier said than done.

    You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.......

    The last 3 tarps I've made were white. It grows on you after awhile. There is no privacy though.

    I prefer natural colors. Park of the back country camping rules of a few places i'm going this year says you need to be completely out of sight really from trails and waterways (to protect other peoples experience in nature) thats much easier to achieve in earth tones.
