                I wish for the Paragonization of the Daylight Briefcase like how the Paragon upgraded the Daylight Backpack. A simple laptop compartment and 2 outside main 3D compartments for papers to balance the bag. Shoulder strap connectors could move back to sides as the laptop compartment would provide protection of the zippers. Maybe add a pen loop somewhere. Maybe drift to the size of a personal item to add utility to its carry.

                Second. Add the laptop compartment style of the Paragon to the Cadet as it has a padded main compartment already. Doesn't need to be used as a computer space, but is great divider for files and papers, too.

                  A hybrid tote/backpack bag, something akin to a pop tote with stash-able backpack straps, or a large zip top shop-bag with removable backpack straps.

                    If they decide to do a Little Swift release, add Mayura to the color options:

You know us: we're working on that new knitting/craft bag design but it could take us a while (read: years) to complete it. In the meantime, we can't not offer a knitting/craft bag *and* we thought the LS would be pretty amazing in the 630d Recycled colors (and Wilderness!! Constellation! Ursa!)

                      Ohhh yes please to a Little Swift.

                      Speaking of, another wish: I really do like the look of the Swift, especially the 'foldaround' botton/sides, but I'm not a huge fan of the 'plastic' pockets inside. They tend to get static-y and I just don't like the feel of them. So my wish is a single run of Swifts but without the plastic pockets!

                        I don’t have a good answer for you with current model Swifts, but the Swift predecessor that I have, which is named the Lux (mine is Crimson 1050d Ballistic Nylon / Black Ballistic Nylon) used a pocket I. Black Cordura Fabric. Furthermore, if you can find a Swift or Little Swift that was made at the time the Little Swifts first debuted up through about a year later, none of the pockets in those bags are sticky. The same thing is true for 3D Clear Organizer Cubes and other accessories.

                        Basically, what happened is that they use the same materials for multiple purposes, and the complaint was that the version of Urethane that they switched to in 2010 (used for all the first Little Swifts) was not as clear, and therefor was not usable for people who wanted to put identifiable badges in the clear pouches.

                        Here’s an example of what the change looked like from a post made by ams123 on 08-25-201 Click image for larger version  Name:	CF522292-31CF-4DE1-B6EE-D633058C8DD5.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	111.4 KB ID:	331966

                        If you read the thread from 05-21-2012 started by MrsT titled Questions about the Urethane used you'll see that this changed in 2011 to the variety that is sticky.

                        The second picture is the version of Urethane that is referred to as "slightly cloudy" in that discussion.

                        All the pictures that I've posted of my Indigo 3D Clear Organizer Cube contents in the forums in various theads are that "slightly cloudy" variety that is totally non-sticky (you may not have been able to have told). My Little Swift in Hemp is similarly non-sticky in its pockets.

                          I would love to see a S25 in Deep Blue with Solaris lining.

                            I used to size up to the DLBC when I had excursions in downtown Chicago where I wanted to keep everything on my front side and close to my person.

                            With the offset shoulder strap attachment points being where they are, you’re always holding the bag’s main compartment half closed. I really loved that bag before the design changed.

                            How about making the DLBC with an integrated, padded tablet or laptop sleeve, open top, a la the Paragon?

                            I was going to pull the trigger on the DLBC tomorrow but I think I'll hold until the attachment points are back to original. It's such a small change but enough to drive me a bit mad I think. I don't want to have to "fight" with the outer strap keep closing on me. Seeing that the DLPCSB was reverted in addition to reverse zipper, it's possible DLBC gets the same treatment. Bummer because the DLBC would fill a bag void in my lineup.

                              I would like a Synapse 19 in black halcyon/taiga. The Syniks and S25 are available in this combo so hopefully it will be an option for the S19.

                                I would love if Fjord returned. That color was available for such a short time and it was awesome. Maybe even as a 400d Halcyon option?
