    Thanks Scott! Very handy...

    What is the intended means of display for this chart? HTML table? Since this is largely comparative data, I would actually like to see it in more of a proper spreadsheet format (or if your web team is game, a dynamic table of some kind), that way it's easier to sort, filter by criteria, and find exactly what you are looking for.

    I've taken a kick at the can of reformatting what you have into what I would personally find useful. Using this format, I can filter out only 400d Dyneema bags for example and do a direct comparison. I stopped after doing the Travel Bags and the Backpacks when I saw how long the list of products actually is... Maybe I'll finish it later tonight/tomorrow when I'm not supposed to be working....

    @ScottS - Thanks for putting this spreadsheet together. This is perfect for my needs. I like to compare the different materials and sizes for weight and capacity, and this puts everything in one spot. I don't see the need for any changes based on my review. Thanks for the quick response to a great idea!

    Thank you Scott. This comparison chart is WAAAYY overdue and much needed. The chart provides the volume comparison information people often need to decide between the MCB/LCB, Imago and Swift/Little Swift. Great job!!

    Very nice chart!
    May I suggest making separate columns for the English and metric dimensions. The advantage of having one piece of information per column is that people can then sort on this information -- which you can't do if they are 'stacked' on top of one another.
    Thanks!

    Something like this format is easier for me to open and read on my iPhone (using the iUnarchive app).

    Agree with the suggestions about making each item have its own column. Being able to sort would be a huge plus, as I compare across categories (backpack, laptop bag, travel bag, etc.).
