I would have liked gray, I’m not a big fan of flashy colors. I like the flat dark earth color best.

Are these colors all possible, or just theoretical colors? Why is black an option if that’s the default?

Black is just there to show as default, We posted the color sheet in the team chat, and hope We will know soon if Sofirn can do these colors in the up coming production batches.

Flat Dark Earth
Olive Green or Coleman Green (both look good to me)
I would like Orange, but don’t much like the Orange sample shown in the above pic (it seems “rusty orange” to me…)

I love them ALL!

I will list my preferences in order, but… I do like them all as long as they look like the pics and not the washed out colors of the orange and green samples posted in the LT1 thread.

1. Olive (As long as it is anodized and not just flat paint or coating)
2. Orange
3. Blue
4. Red
5. Green
6. Flat dark earth
7. Sand
8. Black

I think all of these colors are great. On a scale from 1-10 I think they all fall between 8-10 which is Thumbs Up . These renderings are rich looking with deep colors. As long as the final versions are not washed out all is GOOOD.

The first 5 on my list are chosen primarily because they ARE anodized and not just flat looking paint or a powder coating. The rich color and toughness of hard anodizing are hard to beat. The flat color of the the dark earth is flat for a reason and has it’s appeal as such.

That orange looks really nice.

I got a bunch of those waterproof “pill containers” from AX to hold loose doodads, and while I didn’t think I’d like the orange from the pix and only got one for completeness, when I got it I was wowed. It was the color of (if anyone remembers ‘em) Charms candy. Not quite rust, but that deep deep rich orange.

Do we know which color(s) are more durable/harder? I’m good with black, flat dark earth (voted for), or olive drab. Also, are they all anodized or are some painted/coated? Either way, I’m excited to get the LT1 once “batch 2” becomes available. Smile

Voted for sand/gold.

I also like the flat dark earth and the blue color, if it is similar to the SP10S blue. The 356 green is not bad either.

I am waiting for the colored batches as a black lantern doesn’t look special.

Always looking for: used or damaged flashlights for repair and MODDING

For me i would want something as easy to find in the dark.
The human eye is most sensitive in the dark to light around 507nM wavelength. I’m not familiar enough with Pantone colours to know how to convert nM to pantone.
