    Dyneema UMP/LMP cost more

    Does anyone know why the dyneema versions are $5 more than the ballistic?

    I've wondered about the same thing. This is merely my speculation, but it might be explained by the fact that dyneema appears to be the most expensive TB material since it's imported, although the yen has weakened a lot since the Great Recession. The all-dyneema pouches are slightly more expensive than their counterparts in other fabrics. (Also, during the last price increase, all-dyneema items eg shop bags saw some of the largest %age increases.) What I'm curious to know is why the difference gets passed on in these items in particular and not others, e.g. the SA, Synapses, luggage bags.
