1000 Denier Dupont Cordura
The black material used for the outside of all our bags, Dupont Cordura has a waterproof coating and is usually found in high-end outdoor equipment – it’s considered the best quality material of its kind.
Many other companies use cheaper versions of this material such as kodra or “technical polyester fabric”.
In our experience they never perform quite as well, they don’t look as good and they just don’t feel quite the same as the Dupont original.
Used for the lining of the bag and pockets, heavyweight canvas is a durable yet soft material. Not only does it protect the contents of your bag, it also give the bag extra structure and durability.
We only use YKK brand zippers. Quite simply, they’re the best.
As the zipper is the most heavily used part of a bag, it is also the most vulnerable to damage. Therefore, we design our bags so that zippers can be easily repaired or replaced.
Just so you know, we use a #8 (heavy duty) or #5 (standard) zipper is used for the main compartment, and a #3 (like on pants) zipper is used for the inside pockets.
A distinctive feature of our bags, seatbelt webbing is used for the adjustable straps. It’s very strong yet quite soft – so will not damage delicate clothing or irritate bare skin.
