    3D FABRIC ORGANIZER CUBE: get the shoulder strap: love it.

    I got it in red dyneema. The Iberian is a deeper red than I thought. I like it a lot, not cherry red, more like garnet. Very understated for red. And if you get the shoulder strap too, it will hold a mini pouch with cards and $, keys, and iphone. if you are out and about with your dog, it will also hold treats, and poop bags. It will not hold a water bottle so you got me there ---have to take the small shop bag for that.

    It's the poor woman's side effect shoulder purse. Knitters attention: get one for portable knitting a sock. I am always looking for small sock bags.

    Very nice, indeed.

    I, too, was surprised at how muted the Dyneema colors were. Iberian is probably my favorite, perhaps because red is so often overdone.

    Have you tried a Yarn Sack yet? I think it's my favorite thing in my order. The triangle clip rocks, as does the shape, and I don't even knit!

    The 3D cube was my gateway product into the Tom Bihn line. It actually took me a while to talk myself into a side effect because I was already using the cube in a similar fashion.
    So far: SE in black/iberian and coyote/steel, SSB in black dyneema, Steel dyneema/steel Pilot, Vintage Buzz in black, PCSB and numerous pouches, 3D cubes, straps. Still waiting for the perfect weekender bag which would be a slightly larger Night Flight or a slightly smaller Skookum duffle.

    I "downsized" from the SE to the 3D cube with no regrets. The 3D cube holds the basics for a quick trip to the store - organizer wallet, keys, cell phone, pens and small notebook.

    Can you provide pics? I really like seeing the different ways things like this can be used. ^_^

    This is my greatest fear -
    never skate faster than your guardian angel can fly....black and gold til I'm dead and cold....
    be nice - until it's time to not be nice.......what separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize...

    I hope that the idea for a 3D poop bag is reserved for Skookum Dog products only. Don't want to dilute the brand! ;-)

    Thank you so much for the pictures. It's amazing how much you can fit inside something with a bit of organization. :D

    If anyone is interested in the 3D purse idea, I've been waiting for black parapack to come back in stock. Lo behold, I checked late last night and there it was! And now it'll be sharing a coveted brown box with a NFTD :cool:

    Interested parties may want to check out this thread about modifying the inside hook - pictures start @ #9

    Hobbling around on crutches and no pockets, it provides a place to keep phone close.
