    Wow you're like our forum librarian! Thank you for all the links! That's great stuff about the slash-resistance of Dyneema. It makes me feel much more confident about using the PCSB as a day bag on my travels!

    If you need any further cheerleading about the merits of the PCSB, I'm your gal. I have two and I love(10000000) them. Lightweight, durable, perfect size, perfect shape, stylish. I want a whole rainbow of them!

    I have 2 as well, a brand new one in UV (hard to imagine, I know and a much older one in Steel which I most probably got in late 07/early 08, it looks new despite being the innerbag for the Swift I use as a library bag, a purse at a conference and....a Packing Cube!

    A Steel PCSB is on my wish list! :-)

    @dorayme and I were talking about a black Dyneema that was used in the Utility Totes. It's really lovely, and I wish they'd bring that color back. I'd love a PCSB in black!

    I liked reading the wikipedia article on 'dyneema' aka <big long complicated name>. It's interesting the myriad of uses they have for this stuff - like joint replacements! sounds like a wonder-product!

    Are you serious?!? When it's time for my knees or hips to be done, I'm going to request Ultraviolet. Tee hee! ;-)

    The more products I own in Dyneema, the more I grow to love the fabric. I just got my first PCSB before camp. I carried a knitting project in it. Unfortunately I didn't have any time to knit at camp and now that I'm back, my wrist is injured and knitting isn't probably going to happen for a while. I discovered though that the size is very useful to carry a variety of things. I love that it fits my iPad.
    I wish it had an o-ring inside the main compartment or two and one inside the front zippered pocket. Other than that, it's just about perfect!
    I have seen mention from various forum members interest in seeing versions of the travel bags made from Dyneema. I too would be interested in ultralight yet ultra strong luggage pieces. I think the Western Flyer and Tri-Star are well suited to be attempted due to the fact that their compartments and piping offers structure to the bag.
    I really, really like TB Bags!
