    ETA: one Swift is a dedicated knitting bag and another my teaching bag. The other 3 serve as work/travel bags.

    Any time now (today) I should get my BO/UV swift. Will be an "art bag". Thing is, tomorrow I'm going to a writing workshop at a place where there's a cat and dog. I don't have pets. Was they're yesterday with my indigo/solar S19, and it picked up tons of pet hair. I didn't even want it in my car. I used strapping tape on it to clean it off. Don't want to take my art bag into the same environment. (A Lead's pocket is coming too. Will see if it can be used for art pencils, etc).

        I know you showed pics once, but - do you use a SE?

          I have a few SEs but I don't use them that much as I usually carry an SCB as my PLO. I do use the SEs for travel, as a hiking fanny pack, and as a PLO when I have less to carry. I've been coveting a steel/UV SE, in fact, but passed on it this time as the ones I do have are underused.

            And does your SCB carry inside your swift? Or do you not bother?

              I carry them separately as I like to separate my bags.

                  Just ordered a Brain Bag to hold my new DSLR and lenses (inside a Camera I/O), laptop, microphones, cables, quiver, recorder. Have padded bags, snake charmer (which nicely holds 2 25' XLR cables!). And a quiver for the tripod. Can't wait for it to arrive and get the recording studio/research on the road in a backpack started!

                          BO/UV swift, and SEs in Coyote, Black, and BO/UV.

                          Incidentally, ironic fact - I've tried the BO and returned it in other styles (including the SE). While it's not my favorite color, it's ok in the Swift, and so I again purchased it in the SE. For the moment, I have all current external colors in SEs although some material differs. I surprisingly like the SE, since I've always been a large purse woman. However, since finding Bihn, I've used the SEs a lot since I can add them to my other bags, including LCBs and even MCBs.

                          (Another of my annoying ?s [curiosity] - random poll: zipper of SE in the front, or back? I like it in the front)

                            Oooh... Love it! I really like the Coyote color. And I've been eyeing the burnt orange as well. Neither matches our luggage; we travel with a Rimowa checked-size bag, and a cabin bag from the same line, and they are both navy.

                              I wasn't sure about the coyote. But I bought a LS from ebay and liked it as a neutral color. So I think it would complement navy. So would BO.

                                TB Crew works with warp speed! Placed an order (succumbed to the colors of aubergine and burnt orange) and got confirmation it was shipping just thirty minutes later. Amazing! Third order since discovering TB mere weeks ago...is resistance futile?
