    Return of Swift in Steel Dyneema?

    Anyone else interested in seeing the Swift in Steel Dyneema back again? The photo on the product page is taunting me.

    It would be even BETTER if it reappeared with Nordic Dyneema pockets, now that Nordic has been saved from the cutting block.

    kkintea I wish the best for this but: Darcy said Steel dyneema in 400 will be retired. And I think they do not do (anymore?) 200er dyneema on bag-exteriors.

    Ah sorry, and sorry kkintea just checked the last posting-time.

    Edit: Yes for the time being it is black or nothing regarding the exteriors.

    I have been hoping for the Little Swift to come in steel dyneema/UV. That would be cool

    Well, this was mostly wishful thinking. Although, it strikes me that Swift pockets require little fabric. So if there was to be some bits of Nordic lying about the factory...it might help with the floppies you get with the Dyneema swift to have 400d pockets.

    Just throwing that out there as the crossbody Swift undergoes r&d.
