EDC bag made from dyneema?
Greetings TB Forum Folks,
After much encouragement from my friend tCook, I am taking the plunge into the Tom Bihn pool. Well I say plunge, I'm coming in from the shallow end (in part because I can't decide between an aeronaut & a tristar - but that's a different post). I have however managed to decide on my first TB bag...The Pilot.
I've even managed to pick the interiorcolor, solar. But when it comes to the exterior, I require some advice and input. I'm torn (no pun intended) between navy cordura and nordic dyneema. I really like the appearance of the dyneema but wonder about its durability in an EDC bag. I had a look at what I normally carry and came up with the following list (with a view to weight, have no doubt it'll all fit). It doesn't have to go anywhere too intrepid, I'm an academic & a curator so it's usually a circuit with some mix of tram, office, lecture hall, library, museum & archive, no climbing up mountainsides or jumping out of helicopters. Just wanted to get some thoughts from anyone who uses a dyneema bag as their EDC especially for work
Workday EDC list
Car keys, house & office keys (2 separate key rings)
iPad mini in Dodocase
MacBook Air (13") in padded sleeve + power cord
Lecture/ Teaching notes in a plastic sleeve
Pencil case stuffed with pens, pencils, stylus and way too many (5) USB key drives
1TB USB drive (about the size of a cassette tape for those who remember those :))
Small bag(soon to be 3-D mesh cube) with painkillers, eye drops, throat lozenges, lipbalm and tin of altoid mints
2 pairs of glasses in cases
Headphones (full size ish but foldable)
1-2 library books (more and I tend to put them in a separate bag)
Bagel or a sandwich
When it's cold: scarf, wool cap, gloves, extra sweater.
Thanks in advance for the borrowed wisdom
