My husband has understandably been concerned about the amount of time I've been spending ogling Tom Bihn's products - so of course I had to show him the Smart Alec. Well he liked the dyneema version but was concerned about durability. I extolled it's virtues and said "...it's even supposed to float!" "Oh, really?" He says.
Well what could we do but pull out my small yarn stuff sack out (and take all the knitting out of it of course!) and fill up a big bowl of water to test! It floated there like a champ! And even stayed dry inside! ^_^
I think he's more convinced now!
