In comparison, I would agree it doesn't really make sense to use the 400d Dyneema for say an internal-only packing cube or even an organizer.

    ...of course, you DO realize it's all because I like the matchy-matchy, right? ;-)
    I think that Packing Cube Backpacks and Shoulder Bag could be made in 400 Travel Dyneema for ultra lightweight and rugged use.

    Bicycling comes to mind.
    Somebody posted a picture of the 200 Everyday Dyneema Shoulder Bag as bike kit, Dorayme mentioned using a Shop Bag as a front pannier liner and the Packing Cube Backpacks would make great side wire panniers liners.

    The Dyneema Small Cafe Bag looks like the ideal biking purse, I used a Cordura Small Cafe Bag before and it is great and very stable with the waist strap.


    Nothing can beat 200 Everyday Dyneema Packing Cube Backpacks and Shoulder Bag for dual purpose, packing organizers and lightweight souvenirs and edible goodies gathering.

    So of course I want the items mentioned above in the two Dyneema weights!

    Yes, Packing Cube Shoulder Bags and Backpacks in Nordic, PLEASE!. My Packing Cube Shoulder Bag has become my current favorite bag. It's small but still big enough for my Nook to fit into it. (My Nook tablet just does not fit into my Side Effect.) But I'd like some O-rings too, please.

    YES! I also LOVE the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. It should be awesome in Nordic Dyneema. I use it all the time when we travel and several times I've wished there were O-rings! I'm glad I'm not the only one who wishes for them! Thanks for voicing this... I think about it when I'm traveling, then forget when I'm home!

    Another vote for o-rings in the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. And another vote for Nordic, though the next one I acquire will be Wasabi! I think it would handle superbly in the heavier weight fabric!

    The O rings are a fantastic idea!

    My husband has taken over my Everyday Dyneema Steel Packing Cube Shoulder Bag because I used a waist strap on it, it looks like an oversize and light weight Side Effect.

    It fits his Nexus, it is a perfect workout bag. He is borrowing my Medium Padded Pouch and will get one Medium and one Small of his own coming in my next order.

    Since his own fitting, I don't hear anything about my Tom Bihn Bags which can still be found in every room and closet of our place.

    Any plans to make the Brain Bag in the heavy dyneema? I think an all-dyneema BB (except for the back & straps) will look awesome and unique.

    Hi guys, I've not stopped in here for ages, but all this dyneema brouhaha has reminded me that I need a new every day bag. My two Ristrettos are now over two years old and though both a fully serviceable, I just fancy a change! The only thing holding me up is that I'm also planning to renew my 13" MacBook Pro and until I decide which model to replace it with (Air/Pro/Retina) I can't decide which bag to get. I was erring towards something in ballistic, but this dyneema looks great too!

    Also, I love my Aeronaut to bits. So far I think we've taken almost 50 flights together and despite my cats using it as a bed in between times, it's still as good as new. All this is a shame really as I'm dying to try the new dyneema version, but couldn't justify the replacement cost for a bag that is still in perfect condition after being dragged back and forth the length of Europe for over two years.

    Eric

    The dyneema Synapse looks great. I can't decide between getting this or the black/iberian synapse.
