    1050d Ballistic Nylon
    ETA: it's Ballistic Nylon on the outside, the inside has a 200d Dyneema lining.

    @meekasmom: A number of colour names are linked to only one type of material e.g. Kiwi, Forest, Aubergine (Ballistic only), Ultraviolet, Iberian (200 Dyneema only). Others like Steel appear in all fabrics and deniers (Ballistic, Cordura, 200 Dyneema, (the now discontinued) 400 Dyneema, Parapack) but there's usually some kind of qualifier used with those colours to indicate what fabric it is. HTH for future reference

    Did you mean Kiwi instead of Lime?

    Also, as a rule of thumb, bright solid colours are generally cordura, as high-tenacity nylon (ballistic, parapack) doesn't absorb dye as easily*. Hence colours such as kelly green, french blue, burnt orange and (non-dyneema) wasabi are generally only options for linings and softer bags such as cafe bags and synapses - travel bags (which need to stand up to more punishment!) are usually restricted to ballistic and dyneema.


    * There have been bright colours in ballistic in the past (Kiwi, Cardinal, and I think Indigo) but lately TB seems to have settled on darker shades. I guess they're more popular because they're more versatile, and custom-dyed ballistic nylon is way too expensive in small quantities.

    ETA: I do hope TB continues to offer a couple of "fun" ballistic colours (e.g. aubergine, forest) in addition to the business-friendly black, steel and navy. Even if I'm going carry-on only and don't need to pick out my bag from the sea of black on the carousel, I often leave my luggage with the hotel concierge if I'm at an event that runs on past checkout time, so having an easily identifiable bag is very useful!
