I have an old Eddie Bauer messenger bag. It's seen a lot of use over the years and has held up well structurally. But the coating used on the lining inside the bag for many of the pockets is flaking off. It appears to be some type of coated ripstop nylon. Anything that gets carried in the bag ends up with small specks of this material on it. Not a huge deal, but I'd rather not have this get on/in my laptop and other electronics. You can see where material has flaked off here. Looking at this pic, it seems that what is coming off is a coating of some sort. Anything I can do to prevent this short of carrying everything in a sleeve?
