And yes, like all Storm Bags, the Twister, the Tornado version is fully reversible. Here it is "inside-out":
I did the draw-string straps again, and you can pull the bag into all different shapes. It's so versatile! There is a pocket both inside and out, and I did some quilting on each "side" of the bag - I've never done that on a Storm!

Thanks for reading!
