    Swift in ballistic vs. dyneema

    Does anyone have both a Swift in ballistic nylon and one in dyneema for comparison? I have a Swift in cordura and am thinking about purchasing a second one, probably either the aubergine ballistic or the nordic dyneema (and no, I can't get both ). Can anyone compare the two as far as weight, sturdiness, packability, stand-up-ability, etc. goes?

    They are both brand new and I didn't even know that a Swift in Travel Dyneema existed.

    I think you are going to have to get an answer from Darcy, unless a yarn using person in the Seattle area was asked to be a tester or just dropped by the store and could not resist getting both.

    I would too but I already have 4 Swifts.

    However, since I am in "less is better" mood since I got my yummy UV Synapse, there is no law that says that I cannot get an Aubergine Little Swift to match.
