    Folder for A4 papers in a Swift?

    Can ring binders for A4 paper fit into a Swift? If so, do they fit horizontally or vertically? Would be especially grateful for any photos. (Not being able to hold A4 binders is a deal-breaker for me, alas :S)

    Many thanks in advance!

    I would think they'd fit both ways - I've put A4 magazines in my Swift - but I'd need to check. Alas I'm at the office and my Swift is at home
    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19/CP/MB
    Leisure: SCBs, MCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    Hi, I have my Swift at work with me today, here are the quick pictures I made. If I can do a specific picture tell me. This is a wide and a narrow A4 binder. The paper on top of the Bag is A4 just for the scale:

    @Ilkyway: Does the edge of the binders touch the bottom of the bag when put in horizontally?

    Thanks again, all!

    Yes they do but is a bit of a tide fit. I think I'd put them in vertically I just took some more pictures so that you get an impression:

    You'd get some personal items and a bottle of water in there as well even a calender or small book.

    Sorry about the quality. They are taken with my cellphone.

    Yeah, vertical seems like a better idea. I'm thinking of getting it in black ballistic, so it may not be as accommodating of horizontal folders as your dyneema one...

    It is a very versatile bag. I have replaced my basked with it. I through whatever needs to be taken from A to B in a hurry. I do not carry my paper in binders because I use classei (like vanilla-folders). But it can take quite a bit. I will get a ballistic one (aubergine) one of the next orders... because the sportive look of the dyneema does not work with every setup. But black will. How many binders would you be carrying in there?

    Just a couple thinner ones or one big one (2"+). Plus my SE, 5 pouches, organizer, A4 pad...
