3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric Hybrid

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is composed of high strength Dyneema® fiber laminated inside a polyester membrane. It is inherently waterproof and does not require any coatings or DWR treatment. Dyneema® Composite Fabric has very high tensile strength for its weight and does not stretch.

This hybrid version is made from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the inside, with an extra layer of protective 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color. 

Tensile Strength:
 245 lb/in (2150 N/5cm)

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Water Resistance:
 >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in the USA.

5.0 oz/sqyd Lycra® Mesh

This mesh provides a superb 4-way stretch and is a great choice for exterior backpack pockets. It has a relatively light weight for mesh, while being difficult to tear. It can withstand getting caught on branches and other typical abrasion that backpacks are subjected to.  

 5.0 oz/sqyd (169.53 g/m²)

My new favorite everyday bag!

NYC resident here, where we commute by foot all day every day. I have been waiting for a bag like this. It holds everything I carry for the day, and that’s quite a bit. Looks stylish on and has all the benefits of dynema. Normally I’d by a second as a backup, but the build quality is amazing. Couldn’t be happier!

Perfect. Everything I needed in a day pack.

Everything I could have hoped for in this pack. I needed this years ago and I am so happy I decided to get this thing. I didn’t expect to use it as much as I am but it is perfect for what I needed.

Perfect minimalist backpack. Super lightweight, excellent design & construction. Shoulder straps are flexible, allowing back pack to also be carried like a shoulder bag. Good organization & packing volume for its size. I like the stealth profile and mobility that this exceptional pack provides.
