quba sailcloth jacket

In a fun discussion about fabrics and manufacturing and the (very) imitable titanium spork with a friend Sailcloth came up as a fabric of the times. Light, water/weatherproof, strong and just generally very interesting. The above jacket from Quba and the bags from True Wind or from Klein & More seem to be the easy examples to find. But after a quick read on Wikipedia, why aren’t more things made from sailcloth? Or, perhaps a better question, what’s out there I should be seeing?
Oh and the Klein & More bags are recycled, draw your own Freitag conclusions….

Updated, from Jay, Re-sails backpack, good stuff.

    Re-Sails in Newport, RI has a nice selection. I have one of their bags – it’s incredibly durable and I get plenty of compliments on it.
