    Do you plan to offer any solid color Swifts? I love the bag but not the color combinations. For a knitting bag a light interior is essential - the gray is OK but it just doesn't look good with many of the outside colors. I'd love to see a bag with a lighter interior (maybe Wasabi) and a single, contrasting color exterior.

    A lighter color version of dyneema?

    Darcy,

    This isn't strictly just about the interior of the Swift, but in instances such as the Swift and the Aeronaut, where the interior color is determined by the same material that is used for the outside of the bag except for some dyneema lining or pockets, is it possible to get a lighter pattern of dyneema? The pattern generally works well for the packing cubes, and goes with a wide variety of solid colors, but for more contrast, as Seed mentions, it would be nice to have a lighter interior sometimes.

    I hate to bury this thought in this thread but I think in general all bags should have the option for a bright color on the inside. I never really thought about it but it does help tremendously with packing and finding items when the interior is something other than traditional black.

    Currently, we have our Dyneema fabric made for us in Steel/White Ripstop. The ripstop is always white, but the grey part can be made in pretty much any color we want. We tried out quite a few colors before settling on the Steel color. We found it impossible to find a color that would match (or at least wouldn't clash with) the exterior colors that we use that most people would like or at least find inoffensive. Maybe someday we'll have two colors of Dyneema fabric!
