    No -- both the nylon and the Dyneema have relatively low melting points.

    Speaking of melting points, I was thinking about this the other day. My work laptop is a monster (really a desktop replacement), and can get quite hot. Should I be worried about putting it directly into my bag while it is shutting it down? What are the melting points? I can always let it cool for a minute or so, but just wondering if I need to.
