Have I Gone Colorblind?

Postby The Deacon » Fri Nov 06, 2020 9:53 am

I'm old, and my eyes aren't what they use to be, but in what alternate universe is this jacket GREEN? :confused:

Color looks exactly the same in their printed catalog as on my monitor, so am sure it's not my computer settings.

I must be going colorblind as well. Olight claims this is desert tan...

Yep, Olight's idea of "desert tan" is pretty far off. I have a Baldr Mini laser weapon lights in it and it's several shades darker brown than the "flat dark earth" Sig Emperor Scorpion I have it mounted on. But at least it's somewhere in the brown family. :D

I picked up a Baldr Mini for my HK45 recently, but I agree with Olight that it's gunmetal grey.

I was taking a look at the listing for the puffer jacket. I used to have a Vietnam-era M-1945 sleeping bag that was about the same color as their fatigue green (i.e., not green at all). LL Bean also an interesting interpretation of 'light hickory'...more like red cedar.

I own that light, it’s quite awesome but it’s not desert tan. On my screen at least, it looks just like it does in reality.
I would call it bronze or burnt bronze. You could find about a thousand online gun dealers that sell AR accessories who would call this color bronze / burnt bronze as well.
