In the Apple store yesterday this was playing on my mind. When I had the X I had a tan case; with the 8 it was product red so I wanted something different. I like the midnight blue but have this case on my iPad as well as a yellow one. Then I saw the forest green. It is a dark, very subtle shade and I fell in love with it. I needed a new case as the plastic one I got when buying the Max was just too big, adding mm in all directions and was uncomfy. The Apple ones just slip on like a glove and are much more attractive if slightly costly. I couldn't have gone with a bright green (if one was available) but this forest green is a lovely shade.
