The consensus (from various sources: forums, calls, emails, interrogations, etc,) was that the current gray was nice but a bit darker would be great.
We have selected the new color - a little darker gray, about a 75% gray. In between the current med gray and a black. It should look sharp with the darker gray contrasting with the white Dyneema threads.
We feel it's a nice shade that is both unassuming and at the same time interesting. art theory blah blah blah... Maybe we can look at a two color choice in 2010.
It will show up in the MLD gear in late fall this year.
