moriond on our new 400d Dyneema®/420d nylon ripstop fabric and the resulting 20% lighter Aeronaut and Tri-Star:

“Another way to put this is that if you’re flying on a European airline like Lufthansa or SAS that has an 8 kg weight limit for carry-on luggage, or an Asian airline like ANA where the weight limit is 7 kg, getting the weight of your bag down to just a hair over 1 kg (e.g., 400d Dyneema Aeronaut) can make a big difference. I think it’s just a question of understanding the trade-offs. These may not replace your Tri-Star, Aeronaut, or Western Flyer in Ballistic nylon, but for some folks this provides an important option. See, also, this USA Today article on carry-on luggage weight limits.”
