    Thanks. I got confused by the reference to the bag falling over. I have 2 Swifts but was going to get one of the new plum ones. Now I have to decide between kiwi- which I love- and plum.

    Pictures of the Swift in Kiwi are here!

    I hope to have pictures of all color combinations of Swift up by this time next week, so stay tuned.

    Thanks, moriond!

    Our Seattle factory is producing at lightning speed - we should have some Kiwi Swifts to photograph soon.

    Hi,

    Do you have a picture of the Swift in one of the Kiwi combos? As much as I like my current one (okay, I love the purple and black) I find myself wanting it to stay upright when it wants to fall over.

    Thanks!
    The Swift's design was basically enhanced from the older Lux, which was available in Kiwi. I've linked you to an old view of the Lux so you can see what the color combination of Kiwi and Black looks like. I have both my original Lux and a Swift (both in ballistic nylon, because I like the way these bags stay upright, even when empty). The old Lux is also visible in this blog post which shows the bags standing upright while empty. (But the side view doesn't show the Kiwi color so well).

    Not yet - these are brand-new color combinations and we don't have any finished bags yet. Maybe in two weeks!
