Cool information about Dyneema
Whiile crusing the internet, I found this website from HowStuffWorks that has some interesting information about Dyneema. I searched the forums and couldn't see any place where this may already be posted. It is an interesting read:
HowStuffWorks "How Dyneema Works"
Nice read. They didn't mention the application of dyneema in Tom Bihn's bags though! They should edit the article.
Would be interesting to see a bag in 100% dyneema, but I guess it would be all white.
I am currently waiting on a Steel Dyneema Synapse 25 that I purchased barely used and I am wondering to myself after reading the article if I should experiment with "hard using" this pack just to see how it holds up? This could get interesting.
would I be right in thinking that bag would stay 100% clean all the time as well? if it doesn't take dye, then nothing should be able to stain it, I think.

I vaguely remember reading that the rest of the TB fabric line-up are tougher / harder wearing and can take more abuse then dyneema. (I definitely could be wrong, moriond (or another expert) would correct this if I am :P )

You're right, icebeng: it's called "dyneema parapack" because it's a lightweight nylon parapack reinforced with dyneema threads. I imagine the threads give it great resistance to being pulled apart or torn, but the resistance to abrasion and sharp objects should be similar to the underlying parapack material.
