    swift: ideas for an insert for computer?

    I have a cache on order but just putting a cache in a dyneema bag ain't enough. I am looking for an insert like a camera bag padded rectangle that will give additional protection as well as help the bag stand up. It's floppy.

    Do you mean like the Brain Cell?



    FWIW, I carry my MBA in a Cache in all sorts of bags (Dyneema and Cordura) and I've never had trouble. The Cache is thin and light but perfectly adequate for normal, everyday jostling.

    As for helping a Swift stand up, I don't think you'll be able to reliably do that with any sort of laptop insert. A Ballistic Swift will have more structure and shape but that bag is designed for yarn so it flexes to accommodate its contents.

    Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
