I am thinking of getting the Forest Green as well. Green and gold are a great combo.
The only thing keeping me from it is that I usually prefer neutral colors like Saddle Brown or Black. This is the first time I get something "different" but the other side of me also wants to try something new other than the usual colors I get.
I have the Cosmo blue on my X now. I wish they still had it, LOVE IT. Just bought the Cape Cod blue for the Max. I do miss the saddle brown I had on my 7plus.
I bought a mint colored silicone one for the 7 plus and didn't use it but one time. I couldn't stand the feel of the buttons or how it didn't slide into my pocket well. I ended up getting a more water proof case for when I went hot tubbing.
I’ve always gone with black or a dark blue to keep the case from changing so drastically as it ages, but this year I’d like to try something different. I’m leaning towards the cape cod blue, which also has a sports loop watch band in the same color if I want the phone and watch to match, or the saddle brown, which lots of people think ages nicely. I’m in the fence about that. My gold XS Max is scheduled for pick-up at an Apple Store, so I’m waiting to decide then and I’ll be able to see them both in person.
I’m still debating on which Apple leather case to get. I’ve had the black one since the 7 Plus and X and need to change. I really like the cape cod but really want one that will flow with the gold Max nicely. That forest green is pretty sexy but not my daily style. Always wanted to try saddle, hmmm.....
