Baracuta G9 Color Question


Jun 6, 2012
Reaction score
I've recently been eyeing a Baracuta in navy, but I'm having trouble with the color.

I first saw one on J Crew's website, although it's backordered until February:

I immediately fell in love with that color, which the J Crew website calls navy - but it doesn't really look like navy to me. And in fact the navy G9 on Baracuta's website is much different:

I thought it might just be the lighting and color grading, but even with all that, the two colors look very different. I did some more searching and found a UK website that sells in the G9 in a color called 'utility blue,' which looks a bit closer to the J Crew photo:

That same website also has the jacket in regular navy, shown here for comparison:

So what does SF think? Is the J Crew one just mislabeled? Or possibly a new version of navy exclusive to them? And while we're on the subject, what is everyone's opinions on navy vs. utility blue? I'm more drawn to the latter, but I'm also aware it might not be as versatile as a classic navy.
