    Are you asking about sun bleaching? Will it be out in the sun all the time?

    My Khaki Jumbo Verispack seems to be holding up pretty well over the years.

    I don't think you could go wrong with OD either, it seems pretty dark so even if it did fade it would look pretty good too IMO.

    I have a Foliage Falcon-II that looks brand new. It's less than a year old though.

    Are you planning on leaving it outside for days/weeks/months at a time? I'm sorry, but I don't really see the point to this thread.

    I have foliage green and khaki and neither of them have faded. During the day if they are not on me they are in my truck so they get sun most every day.

    I had a F2 for about five years. I never noticed it until I got a newer Khaki bag, but the F2 seemed lighter (More light brown than dark brown of the spectrum). Not sure if it was due to years of Sun exposure (Not likely) or just that the Khaki was lighter in color than the newer models (Most likely).

    Not experienced any other colour apart from black. Solid from day one. You won't get any probs unless you boil em repeatedly!!!!

    My Maxpedition Jumbo black, I've been using it for 3 years and it has no signs of fading it's color. I just wipe it with wet cloth for cleaning and it looks like new again.

    I have several maxpedition bags from 2005, and they're looking perfect in heavy use - no fading.

    That said, I'd say that the Khaki is the best-looking color after wear/use, etc - the black probably shows things the most, just because light-colored dirt shows up more. I'm still a little sad they stopped using the older really nice-looking khaki - it was almost more Gold-colored. The new one is considerably more-subdued, but doesn't look as nice, IMHO.

    As long as the seams and material holds up, I don't care if mine fades some. Almost all of my gear is OD Green, and I think it just looks better if it fades as it gets older. Your bags should show the miles you've put them through, it gives them character.
