    Attn. Knitters: Recommend Swift Colors

    Our Seattle factory is ready to get to work constructing the next next batch of our Swift knitting bags.

    Colors that we'll definitely be making include:
    Cocoa/Olive
    Plum/Cocoa
    Kelly/Navy
    Sage/Black (ballistic)
    Crimson/Steel (ballistic)

    Any recommendations for new color combinations? Especially with Storm or Pink? Your options are:

    1050d ballistic nylon - Black, Steel, Crimson, Sage

    1000d Cordura - Black, Steel, Crimson, Cocoa, Navy, Kelly, Plum, Pink, Storm, Olive, Sapphire

    (You can see swatches of these colors here)
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

    Pink/Cocoa is a hot combo right now. I don't know if that would be too many cocoa choices, though.

        Pink and steel might might a nice combo - esp. as the inside of the bag is gray. Plum and olive might be a nice combo (is that already a combination? I can't remember). It doesn't look like there's a swatch of sage in your link but I don't think you can go wrong with black and sage. Sage and crimson might work together too but it's hard to say without seeing s swatch. Same for sage and steel.

          *cocoa / storm *
          navy / storm
          plum / navy
          cocoa / black

          old faves:
          navy / cocoa (my tote is this color & i love it)
          cocoa / steel
          steel / sapphire
          sapphire / olive
          crimson / navy
          steel / navy (not used before, but similar to some others)

          not for me, but I think they look good:
          cocoa / cayenne
          black / cayanne
          olive / navy

          since the 80's seem to be back (egad!):
          pink / navy
          pink / plum

            I agree that the cocoa/storm would look good. I like the combinations with navy (including plum/navy), and think that either black or cocoa/cayenne would work.

              These are great suggestions! Keep them coming!

              It'll be hard to narrow down just a couple to try in this batch.

                I love my sapphire. I like bright colors- sapphire and cayenne would be colors I'd buy.

                  I'd like to see the sage and steel in ballistic.

                    Storm combination

                    I think the new Storm colour is incredible, but I would like to see it paired with something darker than Sapphire.

                    Rather, I think that Storm/Navy would look great together. I would definitely buy a Swift in that colour, and would love to see the storm colour or even the storm/ navy combo trickle down into other bags (like the new Synapse, or even the mini cafe bag).

                    Thanks!

                        Pink/storm or Pink/cocoa would definitely make me spend some more money!

                          I saw a Sapphire/Black Swift listed one morning and hopped the next bus to Tom Bihn. Bought it straightaway, and it hadn't even made it out of the shop yet. The only one I've ever seen, and lots of people ask me where I got it.

                          Maybe you could make some more???

                          PLEASE make more dyneema/clear or solid dyneema mini/small/medium pouches! I like both the blue dyneema and the gray - I'm not really picky...

Last, 3 Lifefactory Bottles and my Plum Field Journal! Plus a blue (natch) FOT. All bags decked out with Tom Bihn luggage tags .

                            Mine is black/sapphire. Isn't that one of the regular options?
                            It is a lovely color combo.

                              Definitely cocoa/storm - I love organic combinations!
