    dmilem liked post by lotuseater On thread : Large & Medium Cafe bags in dyneema
    It's not just you, darbs. Of the dyneema combinations I've seen offered so far, my preference is (1) nordic/steel, (2) steel/wasabi, (3) steel/steel. Nordic/UV does nothing for me.

    We eschew box-X tacks because they are typically used to attach a piece of webbing (strap) directly to the middle of a panel of fabric, and while this looks really beefy, it turns out to be not as...

    Breaking my long silence, Solar dyneema is the perfect wingman. It makes whatever color it is paired with look so much better.
