Cords rather than webbing not so great

The unit is Sil nylon, and came as advertised. It is light. It uses cord based compression "straps" rather than webbing based strapping (probably for weight). I have to admit that I don't really like the cord. I find it more difficult to release than webbing. Compressing is about the same. But, if you are counting every single 1/2 ounce, this bag might be for you. Personally, I think I would pay the 1/2 ounce and have the webbing for ease of use in releasing the compression. I am also skeptical now that I have used it 3 times how well the cords are going to hold up under repeated use. So far they are fine, but the cord outer cover seems like it is going to separate eventually. Not a fan of the cord.
