Love it. My first time out with it I took it for a 13 mile jog. At first it was bouncing around a lot, but then I figured out how to work the compression straps. After that it was a smooth jog.

Designed small for fast, light travel, the Swift II lets you keep your essentials handy and organized. The Swift works great for air travel, road trips, the summer concert series in the park, or short hikes. A fleece-lined front compartment keeps your sunglasses safely stowed, while a cell phone pocket and MP3 pocket with headphone port hangs onto your technology. Exterior water bottle pockets help you stay hydrated. When you're just traveling from the car to house, the waistbelt tucks away, allowing you to use the shoulder strap option.
