Slightly sad to admit it, but I have a yellow IM Headsweat visor.  I brought it in the US at IM Arizona!!  I have put some photos on FB, and will try to load them here.  They yellow is very close, and frankly, I don't think that you would actually notice a difference as the LG kit and Confides kit is slightly different too...

Of course it's sports stuff ? It's not like we've accidentally bought er thermal visors or ex poker game kit. It's nice kit. Doesn't help you go any faster but at least you look vaguely pro...

the colour looks much closer in real life.  It's the fabric that's different.  The confides bike top is lightly reflective when looked at with the naked eye.  The camera doesn't pick up the detail.

Cougs, it does make you faster!!  Please don't burst my bubble... all of my (non) training is banking on the fact that once I put yellow on my speeds will improve...

grrrrr.. it's done it again! 

Cougs is in the LG kit so you can compare both manufactuers now.

There isnt actually a Pirate yellow pantone, because different pantone colours look different when printed onto different fabric, so even though the original idea of maintaining the same pantone number, in order to keep the yellow the same was a good one, in practice it doesnt work when ordering outside of LG. When i have ordered stuff, I talked to someone and requested "Tour de France yellow" as this is the bright yellow, not greeny or orangey yellow, that we now associate with Pirates.
I really dont think anyone will notice the subtle difference in shade, there will be a head's distance between the items of kit anyway, everyone will be distracted by Cougie's muscles and that's before the aforementioned fading etc of colour.
As i seem to keep saying, I'm not going to Lanza, but I think those who are will welcome the use of them, so I say go ahead.

I hadn't realised Cat5 was 'Bieber'!  Great name for him I think!!  

Because he turns up late and makes small children cry?

i was thinking of adding to my order to include a second visor..... for me

PSC - thanks for the photos. I think they show clearly the two colours

Flyaway talks sense. The colours will not be side to side and so there can be some slight variation. Also, the man on the street will not be comparing the colours and as such I think some people are over thinking this.

I reckon the majority verdict is Headsweat yellow and i shall proceed on that basis.

Please also see Cougie comment re leisure or sportswear.

If you no longer wish to be on the order, please let me know as soon as poss as I would like the order placed in time for Lanza

Flyers (and someone else) did make a good point, if I lay all my kit down side by side, there's variation between LG and Confides and even from LG to LG depending on item and fabric type (and if it's been washed much!)

Is it me or is the response box to type in now TINY?  I can heardly read what I've put.
