Alrighty, I'm on the verge of buying a Tri-Star this spring and then an Aeronaut in the following months. My question is simple: should I get both bags in ballistic nylon or both in dyneema? Or better yet, one in each fabric. I do not own a dyneema bag yet. My Synapse 25 is black cordura and the Co-Pilots are ballistic nylon.
My assumption is that the Tri-Star would be more business-like in ballistic nylon (thinking Steel/Ultraviolet) and that the nylon would possibly prevent overpacking, resulting in some serious bag bulge. I already have a Cache for my MacBook Pro Retina, as well. It's a vertical cache and won't clip into the Tri-Star but it still would fit beautifully in the middle compartment. I don't do a ton of business travel but occasionally go on 2-3 night getaway weekends. Aeronaut would probably be overkill for those kind of trips.
On the other end, the Aeronaut would be used for longer personal trips and it's a bigger bag so the weight advantage plus casual factor would possibly go to Dyneema (thinking Nordic/Steel). The Aeronaut kind of goes against my "have a pocket/compartment for everything" mentality but the versatility is huge on this bag.
Both bags will be used on my trip to Cozumel next year. What say you, fellow Bihn-holics? Thanks
