      My Auber-sabi Swift (knitting), Island med shop bag (gin and tonic and coffee supplies) and french blue/olive SCB (edc) all waiting to be loaded back in the car after a lovely weekend knitting retreat on the Washington coast.

        Not a picturesque destination, but I'm glad I had my useful TB EDCs at a dementia conference today. Inside the Little Swift is the new small CBFS which gives plenty of organization with enough room around it for a hard-shell sunglasses case, wristlet wallet, Q-kit (hand sanitizer & lip balm) and a pocket pouch for cards.

          Your shop bag carries my bare necessities. 😀

            Marty and the Time Machine should be here all week if you're in the area and want to come check it out. PM me if you're going to be here and would like to meet up.

                They just did a story on him and his car tonight on the NBC Nightly News. They drove around with him in the car while talking about the movie. They must have done the story not long after or before you were there, because he was wearing the same clothes.

                  How very cool! I will see if I can find the video clip!

                  Marty's a really friendly guy! He was dressed in the same clothes yesterday as well (that was his attire in the original Back to the Future movie). He also has the jacket, shoes, hat and Hover Board from Back to the Future Part II.

                  The movie theater in the Town Center is playing all 3 movies tomorrow evening. And there is a Red Carpet showing of Back to the Future on Sunday evening. Doc Brown, Jennifer and Principal Strickland are supposed to attend!

                    Got home tonight and had this waiting for me! The new dyneema Parental Unit. I love this bag and I love dyneema - I'm a happy camper! Not much light for a picture, but I couldn't wait till tomorrow to share.

                        Wow, that makes me want to reconsider that bag. I sold my ballistic version because it just didn't hold enough, but experience has taught me that Duneema is more forgiving. Hmmm....
                        Eat well, travel often.

                          Quick and dirty as I head to work...this bag is definitely going to conform to what's in it. In these pics all I have in the middle is my iPad and a travelers' notebook. In the outer pocket 1, I have an umbrella, a couple of small organizer pouches with electronic odds and ends, and a small Q kit. In outer pocket 2, I have another small Q kit, a fairly empty side effect, and a roll up pen case. Seen from the side, there are fabric ripples due to the center section being relatively empty. Seen from the front, I really like how the "ears" of the bag go vertical (I have always found the PU to be better looking in use due to this - when at rest those "ears" tend to point outward making the bag look wider at the top). When I get home tonight I will do some comparison packs with my ballistic PU and my mirror less camera kit - lots of hard shapes and angles to test. I also really like how the various fabric sections show against each other in dyneema, I feel it does a neat job of showing off the complex bag construction and the arch of the zippers - provides more visual interest.

                          Can a mod please rotate my vertical picture to the correct orientation? THANKS!

                              Oooh, thank you so much for posting pics - I really like it in dyneema. I love my ballistic PU, but there are times when I wish it had just a smidge more give. It looks great!!

                                Here's the new dyneema Parental Unit compared to ballistic for what can be stuffed in there...

                                I pulled together way more than I would actually carry in this bag, to stuff the dyneema version and then see how much of that would fit in the ballistic...
