    Resistance to pet hair

    I am going to get an Aeronaut or Tri Star, but haven't decided on the material yet. Is there any difference between the two when it comes to accumulating pet hair? We have two dogs and two cats, so I need every competitive advantage I can get

    Dyneema pretty much repels animal hair, but ballistic nylon is OK too. Neither acts as a hair magnet like Cordura! Having said that, I really like Cordura as it has a more 'natural' feel to it

    I completely agree with Fat Crip. In terms of hair resistance it's dyneema then ballistic then cordura. I understand the issue too, I've got a cat and a dog. I also have hair tested all three fabrics.

    I have never tried cordura but I can vouch that ballistic nylon and dyneema are very fur resistant. As my travel trays, clear quarter packing cubes and ballistic aeronaut can testify in a household with more than 10 cats and currently 5 dogs (3 golden retriever ladies, a Scottie girl and a little lurcher). Our vacuum cleaners are definitely overworked, but nothing much sticks to those two fabrics.
