    Brompton Bag by Swift Industries

    Swift Industries just released a new bag for bromptons. This company is local to me and I've heard good things. They say that it will fit all handlebar types and because it is handmade, of course you can get custom colors.

    Cool... I'd love to see a modified backpack that could clip on but then be used with shoulder straps. What would be neat is if the frame was collapsible (or alternatively, I suppose you could just leave it fixed to the bike when you arrive at your destination).

    measuring the bag support frame. [30cm x 40cm]
    by : 15cm ... sized quote: 16"Wx12"HX6"D

    so an inch less than the bottom stiffener on Brommy's own Touring bag.
    rear pocket seems not so water bottle carrying sized..

    NB: Carradice makes some Brompton bags too to fit the support frame..

    And it's not entirely clear if it comes with the frame though it does say the block is bought separately.
