    Nordic SE fraying

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice from the TB experts! I received my nordic SE a few weeks ago, and have used it a few times, mainly as an organiser in my imago. I've noticed that the white thread of the dyneema fabric is lifting. I have other dyneema bags, and have not had this problem. Should I cut the threads off, or will that make it worse?Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1402604746796.jpg

    @cal, this seems highly irregular to me. The white threads are the high-tenacity fibers in Dyneema fabric so you may want to email TB and ask them if cutting the threads will compromise fabric performance or cause more unravelling. Hopefully it won't be an issue and you can snip with impunity. Good luck!
