    I'd love for bag makers start using the Hi-viz orange or yellow interiors again. Who is with me?

    To a degree, yes.

    As long as there is enough contrast I think it's fine to skip the bright colors.

    Light grey, tan, etc does the job.

    I do agree that a plain black interior is boring and ineffective unless you are in an environment that requires it.

    Hi-vis colors is what keeps me from buying Vanquest bags. I am glad there are still a lot of companies that don't, I agree that lighter colors are better, but yellows and oranges are a no go.

    First Tactical has some pouches with reversible interiors that include a hi vis option. The ones I have I like.

    It is a feature that differentiates bags from competition: 5.11 prime, Vanquest, Crumpler bags and Tom Bihn all excel through great organisation and great contrasting lining. A choice should be offered. It is a key feature I look for in new packs especially those you will be frequently accessing outdoors such as small day packs.

    To pick up on a point made again on the current 5.11 AMP thread: why do so few manufacturers provide photos of their bag interiors given the importance of organisation (and I posit: the lining)

    If they are going to continue marketing bags without pictures of the inside, does it matter.

    Maybe the interior is both concurrently hi-vis and drab? Maybe the bag was originally purchased for Herr Schroedinger’s feline friend? We should be told.

    Pics and video of the Evade 2.0’s light grey interior lining looked good enough to me (along with other features) that I jumped on the waitlist.

    I use the latest iteration of the CamelBak Urban Assault as my daily. I never realized how beneficial the contrasting interior is until I started using it. Now, I consider it an essential. It makes finding things so much easier.

    For me its not night-time use, but simply accessing the contents in the shade outdoors in a very sunny environment without having to remove shades...

    I like the Hi-Viz used in Recycled Firefighter bags, and I have one or two diaper bags with Hi-Viz interiors. :)
