    Dyneema drawstring bag

    My wife loves carrying around this drawstring type of pack. Made of nylon and is now breaking down a bit at the seams. I was just thinking how awesome it would be to see one of those in steel Dyneema. Could even serve as a very large stuff sack/packing cube.

    So you mean something larger than a Size 4 Stuff Sack?

    Are the Yarn Stuff Sacks bigger than the Travel Stuff Sacks?

    I could be wrong, but I think he meant something like this, but in Dyneema.

    one of these in dyneema would be nice if the weight could be cut in half too. A big yarn stuff sack with shoulder straps, perhaps.

    Almost. My wife isn't a fan of the shape of the DLBP though. But she loves that drawstring backpack thing.

    This idea was put forth by @dorayme in the Wish List thread! Drawstring backpacks are the ultimate in portability because they are completely flat when empty. You could roll or fold it into a very small shape and tuck it into your main bag, which might solve the "what bag to carry when I get to my destination?" question that seems to come up so frequently.

    I find them very handy when on a plane - great for my wallet, cell phone, lip balm, headphones and a notebook - things I want at my seat and easily stuffing back into my main bag when I land. While I have used one of the 3D organizer cubes, on my last trip I used the cinch backpack from LL bean - a fancier version of REI's flash 18, which was also great for holding necessities at the convention I went to. The cinch backpack may be overkill, but if Tom Bihn comes up with a drawstring backpack in steel or iberian dyneema, I would be all over it.

    I think some of these Marmot Kompressor packs have drawstring tops.
