Orange
FDE
Olive green

Surprised no ano / clear isn’t on the list. It’s all the rage these days. Or so I hear.

Only just noticed this thread, so here are my favourites:

I’ve wanted an LT1 in orange ever since the suggestion came up. At the time I thought I wouldn’t be particularly keen on green, but after seeing the rendering that’s going to be my second choice. And the rich blue colour looks amazing, too.

If the orange was a true blaze Orange, that would be my no-brainer pick. The color shown seems a little muted or rusty colored compared to a hunters vest for example.

But Orange, Coleman Green, and Blue are my choices.

I don’t think the colours in the renderings are very precise. If you look up ‘Pantone 21’, you’ll see a number of different colours, from the more yellowish one in the image to a more deep and reddish colour. The Pantone website itself shows a darker and more rich hue, but without a calibrated monitor it’s going to be difficult to tell exactly what it’s going to look like in real life.

The RGB value is #FE5000.

I love the olive green and Flat Dark Earth, but the “normal” colors are looking great too.

Since we’re doing ordered lists:

  • Olive Green (my vote in the poll)
  • Flat Dark Earth
  • Sand
  • Coleman Green

I don’t care about the other colors, but they look nice too.

They all look good, even the Boring Black if you sand it or bake it.

Clear ano would be my first choice.  Hard to miss silver in almost any outdoor/camping environment, even at night searching for a dropped/lost LT1 in fallen leaves using a cold white light.  Otherwise, it's a tossup between red and orange.  I voted for red just 'cause my wife's daily rider motorcycle is red.

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

Smile! It makes others wonder what you've been up to.

What about the voting-system toykeeper used for the LED-Vote of the FW3A?
With this system, multiple colors could be voted.

Wow! I can say that I’d be happy with any of those colors with the Orange being top choice and Blue being last. They simply look sharp.

Thanks for including FDE, DBSAR. Obviously voted for that, but the orange looks really good too.

Voted for Olive Green but would take either green if only one was available. Second choice is the blaze orange.

Thanks for all your efforts!

Coleman green got my vote, and the burnt/blaze orange would be my 2nd choice. All the colors do look great though.

1. 021 Orange
2. 356 Green
3. 7501 Sand
4. 574 Olive Green

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.
