I voted for flat dark earth, but only if it’s FLAT! A shiny finish done in this color would just look like gold flashlights of the old days.

The old “Colt Grey” from the XM177 days. That could be nice.

What’s the effective result of the poll and how did and will do it effect the available colors of the lantern?

The three top votes were for Blaze-Orange, Flat-Dark-Earth, and Olive green as the three main colors we are hoping they can build. They sent me a sample of the Bronze color sample, it looks good as a fourth color. (will do a video on that soon.

I still have a 1 time use code for amazon.ca, would I be able to use it for a coloured one when they come out? or could we sign up for another group buy?

I kind of want to save some $$ if we can get coloured versions.

It’s only good for the black ones.

We have not heard much back yet from Sofirn or Barry on the colors. We will look into it soon, i know they had some problems with achieving the colors we wanted.

Those were a limited number of Bronze colored test versions, (along with a test bright green) they had them for sale on their site.

For original colors, I voted olive green. I’m kinda liking that bronze, too. But it’s a shame that it’s not a proper bronze; so should be darker. You know, more brown to it. Then it would look amazing! This test bronze looks like some weird mix of copper and gold. Do a true bronze and I’m in!

Any updates in the last two months?
How did the global pandemic effect Soshine and the LT1 projects?

Red will match my wife’s car and my bicycle, blue will match my car, pisol grips/ pocket knife, olive green, matches my camping equipment, orange and green my fishing gear, sand/DE my other pistol grip and pocket knife.
I already bought a black. LOL may get some more for gifts. Blue, Olive green, Red are my favorites.

The olive green looks almost a bit too dark. Definitely darker than the Coleman green.

Voted for orange, love it!

Will the new colours sell through BLF with an emailed code, same as previous sales? (Still loving the BLF GT70 which was my last purchase).

 

If so, will that announce in the mail LT1 thread? (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/44923)

*EDIT*

Just bought the black one through banggood, but I want the Orange as well.

If the C01S color samples are representative of what would be used for the LT1, then it looks like there are several good options, especially that olive green:

If I had waited for that to buy mine, I’d probably print out a sticker of the BLF LT1 logo colored like the Coleman logo to dress mine up.

Any updates for the colors?
I discovered this flashlight today and am interested in purchasing one. If I can get it in any color, it would be great!

Barry of Sofirn can update on that info for the colored versions, but guessing will be in the fall later in the year.
