NEW POLICY: On the 1st of every month, 5 custom builds of this bag will be added to the 'inventory' to be selected and purchased. Please check back on the 1st to put together your custom selection.
WHY?: My mission here at Truce has always been to repurpose material that would otherwise be discarded, originally old sails while working at North Sails. I enjoy making custom bags and talking with customers about their specific needs, but at this point in time I need to focus on getting through the materials I receive as efficiently as possible. This policy might change in the future. Keep an eye on One Offs for Travel Sets of all sizes, making these is a much more efficient way for me to keep recycling stuff, and will be refreshed more often.
To make our Drop Liner backpacks, we compile scrap fabric from drysuit factories and find other high-perfomance fabrics that would otherwise be discarded. We combine them with the best zippers, trim, and buckles around to make our unique, streamlined backpacks.
Choose from a selection of drysuit Nylon, eco-friendly Northpak® Polyester, a range of high performance materials such as Dyneema® or Kevlar®, Halley Stevensons' cotton and nettle fabric, or the 1953 Army Canvas tent - and keep your items dry inside the seam sealed liner. Get more detail on the options on our materials page.
Available upgrades include:
Laptop compartment: Side access laptop zip with YKK® Uretek water resistant zipper, accomodating up to a 17" laptop for Mediums and Larges. OR interior laptop drop pocket, accomodating up to a 15" laptop for Mediums and Larges. Please contact Luke if you have questions or concerns about fitting a specific laptop into a specific bag size.
Hip Belt: Upgrade to a padded hip belt, or stick with the standard webbing hip belt.
Foam Type: Our standard dual density closed-cell foam straps won't absorb moisture or sweat, are lightweight and curved to enhance comfort. Cut from the same mold, an available upgrade features dual density Bloom® foam featuring algae content - make your Truce pack that much more 'green'.
Side Pocket(s): Choose to add one or two side pockets to your pack, allowing you to carry easily accessible water bottles, thermoses, etc. Our newest side pocket design incorporates a slide lock and nylon webbing along the top edge instead of elastic webbing. We've found that the elastic webbing degrades over time and doesn't look quite as clean.
Main Buckle: Upgrade from the standard plastic Duraflex® buckle to a Fidlock® magnetic buckle or a COBRA closure.
As a tiny company, I rely on bags with logos being seen 'in the wild' to get exposure - as a designer, I totally understand the appeal of having a bag with no logo. I hope a middle ground of paying an extra premium for the 'no logo' option makes sense, but please let me know your thoughts!
