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 accesible 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.
Securely closed with an upgradeable 1½" buckle, our waterproof* backpack is available in three different sizes and custom coloring options.
PLEASE NOTE: Each pack is different. There will be slight changes in the fabrics our partner factories use, so naturally our stock changes accordingly. Please let us know in the comments box during checkout if you have any special requests.
