    One-bagging for long weekend with Steel Ballsitic/UV NFTD (looking diminutive in the overhead bin on Allegiant Air)...

      It's weird that the left and right sides of the bed are in slightly different time zones.

      I love your little Night Flight! I'm a new fan of steel, and love seeing pictures of it.

        Thanks, @Rocks.

        I am a big Steel fan, too. It may look unexciting in some photos, but in person Steel Ballistic is marvelous, with a wonderful sheen and dimensionality.

        Steel goes with everything, and I love the contrast between the subtle exterior + the splash of color of a Dyneema interior.

        Have only traveled with the Night Flight twice so far, but it has quickly become one of my faves.

          Verde is my new favorite color!

          Ever since a kind forum member rehomed this fabulous Little Swift to me, I've been collecting accessories to match it. I hope this color sticks around. I am not sure I like it as much in larger bags, but I think it looks really nice in smaller doses. I enjoy it paired with other neutrals like black, grey and steel. Even the UV interior is ok though I'd prefer steel as a match.

          I like Verde better than the two previous greens that were offered.

          Unbelievably, I now have two Little Swifts, both acquired after it was discontinued. The other one is black, and I use it with equal frequency.

            I really, really love picking up nice second hand items, partly because they are usually no longer made and partly? mainly? because it means something isn't going to waste. I was lucky enough to grab an old-style foam padded pouch, and absolutely *heart* it. The old foam is squishy and/but firm like nothing else is, and it's replaced my ultrasuede Nook pouch as my portable HD case. Perfect. My current laptop is giving up the ghost, and I wish I could get a cache in the old foam to accompany whatever smaller laptop it is that I'll be getting.

            Here it is with a Nordic COW-- also a treasured second-hand goodie-- that's currently in rotation.

              By the way: as soon as my daughter realised what I was about to do she turned around and acted as if she did not know me :-P

                        Aeronaut 45 in Guangzhou Baiyun Airport. Domestic flight to Shanghai. Almost fully stuffed but fit no problems. Boarding agents did not give me a second look for the bag.

                          Packing for our annual trip to Wisconsin--we are bringing a lot of TB gear!



                          Pictured: Swift, Little Swift, A45, Night Flight Travel Duffel, Daylight Backpack, a bunch of shop bags (both sizes), and a vast quantity of stuff sacks and other accessories.

                          Not pictured, but tagging along: linen SCB and my husband's Cadet.

                          ETA: the big bag to the right is our giant Lands End (or maybe LL Bean, I don't remember) tote bag that we use for the beach. I tried to replace it with two large shop bags, but was vetoed because apparently carried a giant, heavy canvas tote bag to the beach is "tradition."

                            Is that a large shop bag you have your books in?

                              Do I recognize that DLBP? I've been staring at my TB stash today... WANT. NEW. STUFF. But it's a case of "all dressed up with no where to go"!

                                Yes, a large shop bag in Zest, crammed full with books and magazines.

                                And @marytattoo Yes, you recognize that DLBP :-)
