    dyneema would indeed be a great choice for the side effect, and also for the 3D Clear Organizer Cube!

    It would be a great bike tool accessory with the matching pant/leg protector made with the same fabric and strong Aplix® hook and loop closure.
    This is a great idea! Second the notion for a Dyneema version that could be used this way. I don't know much about how the matching pant/leg protector would work, though. Can you expand on this? Do people generally use pant/leg protectors made with fabric (as opposed to metal clips)?

    I'm guessing you could also cinch the waist straps tight and thread the excess back into the space to use as an attachment to camera bags that have accessory loops and such. Not that you will need to after the camera insert is released....

    Great question. Yes, it is an open area, and you could thread your belt through it. The waist strap is not removable, though.

    Speaking of the mini cafe bag, while I do really like this, I think I'll wait for the mini cafe bag. I dunno. I don't see myself carrying this on its own (aesthetics) and it would feel like an exorbitant buy if I'm not going to do that. Maybe I'll change my mind once I see it on a person.

    Still, I think it's an awesome addition to the Tom Bihn line!
    I did mean Small thanks timarelay.

    mrae we seem to love the same colors Sapphire and Plum.

    I also have a weakness for Steel and Pink.

    I always get matching colors, this way I might be able to clip a small bag into a big one and make it look as one.

    I have a Plum/Steel Swift and a Plum/Olive Imago...2 of my organizer pouches are sapphire and they look fine with the plum.
    What a great point. Plum it is.
