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 buy a second as a backup, but the build quality is amazing. Couldn’t be happier!

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)

Midway 12L Pack super cool

This little go to pack is tough, light, water resistant and low profile as it gets. Great for a day on the trail, town, beach or airplane travel. It will hold all those small essential items keeping your hands free and body hardly noticing you have a pack.
