    I'd like to know that too. If someone has both, might he/she pleas tell about his/her thoughts on that?

    @Scribe, my cat may have unwittingly sacrificed her privacy on my behalf - you are a bit too clever!

    @moriond, yes it is an Ibex sweater - good catch! It is super soft and comfortable, and it was an accidental match with my phone case.

    @hamiltee, I love the lighter weight dyneema for the SA, and it still has plenty of structure. I have not tried the other version SA. When I saw the black dyneema in person, I fell in love with it. I will confess that I really wanted a single color SA, rather than two colors, and the dyneema appealed to me more than all black. It seems extremely strong and sturdy so far.

    So I'm told ;)
    Work EDC: SE + S19/CP/MB
    Leisure: SCBs, MCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!
