What are the dimensions of the Passport Pouch?
love the passport pouch...but if I caught myself carrying anything with that pattern on it I might have to kick my own rear end...
Seriously all I would need to "go with" are plaid bermuda shorts, black socks and wingtips...
Still I can see adding one to my travel kit...as is...

Siquid mantica non capit, domi relinquendum est.
I like this slightly old "high tech" pattern of the dyneema fabric which is also inside my often used/much loved black Aeronaut and packing cubes which I got for Christmas. Personal association: it looks exactly like the background in the art for Blondie's 1979 "Eat to the Beat" lp, one of my most favorite albums--I nearly wore out the grooves on my first vinyl copy when it was released. Maybe I'll regress to a teenager again and start taping pictures of Deborah Harry all over my Tom Bihn bags. I'll stop myself from slashing the fabric and putting safety pins through it.
The convertible packing cube is perfect for me and is now at the top of the list of Tom Bihn Products I Must Have.
It's worth considering that your entire purpose in life could be to serve as a warning to others.
Really? Not that I would test this unless it was a sample piece of Dyneema. I would think that a puncture could allow a tear to occur along the direction of the weave of the fabric given enough force. Is it that once the Dyneema is produced it acts as a solid sheet instead of a sheet of woven fibers? It is nylon, correct? Curious...
The deal is this: the black part of the fabric is nylon, and the white grid is Dyneema. Dyneema is a very high-density polyethylene (yea, polyethylene - the same stuff from which they make garbage cans and yogurt containers, only denser) that is very, very strong. So basically if a hole starts in the fabric, it's only going to go 6mm (.25") or so until it gets to the Dyneema.
We can send you a scrap with which to experiment.
Thanks for the answer. No need to send a scrap for testing--I believe you!
I have a pair of dyneema gloves that are practically bulletproof. They offer outstanding cut protection and are great when working with tools and such. That being said, dyneema is a great material to use for a passport pouch! No more being overly worried about your passport pouch being cut by those seaking to steal (happens all the time with money pouches).
