We have a few Synapse backpacks in Kelly/Steel and Steel/Solar Dyneema available now. While our Seattle factory will make Steel/Solar Dyneema in the next batch of Synapse backpacks, we won’t make Kelly/Steel again. That makes this your last chance to get what (we think) is a pretty great color combination.
“I’ve got about 10 knitting bags, and this [TOM BIHN Swift] is a favourite for going out into the world. It’s seriously durable and has lots of neat accessories, and even comes with one of those yarn stuff sacs with the clear bottoms. Nifty.”

All other colors of Swift in Cordura in 1050 denier U.S. ballistic nylon – including Kiwi/Black, Steel/Steel, and Cocoa/Olive – are available for backorder. Already placed backorders for out of stock color combinations are expected to ship this week. New backorders should ship next week.
“Tom Bihn was featured in our best of 2008 lineup with their Checkpoint Flyer bag, and this year they did it again. Their Tri-Star bag beat every other bag I tested in 2009, and earns a well deserved spot in the this lineup. The Tri-Star is an astounding bag – it is a shoulder bag, backpack and carry-on all in one. There is enough space for a laptop, documents and clothes for a couple of days. “
