Timbuk2 Lamitron Bags

Timbuk2 is one of the best bag manufacturers around. I've used my old el ocho every day for the last 10 years with no blowouts. They are currently working on a series of bags using a cool new recycled fabric material:

The recycled fabric, RootPhi calls Reclaim™, is made from Low and High-density polyethylene. LDPE & HDPE are the simple plastic ingredients found in the typical shopping bag that you'd find at your local grocery or shopping market. RootPhi has developed a machine that turns these bags into a very special fabric that has characteristics much like leather or vinyl.

Sounds pretty interesting and I'm always excited to see what they have lined up. You can read more about the new bags here.
