The brightly colored liner is made from diving suit factory scrap fabrics, making our Drop Liner backpack as environmentally friendly as it is useful.

    Epic Bag - World-Class Service

    Bag is everything it is promised to be, and they do their best to make the bag to meet any requests. This is my new motorcycle bag for my daily rider and it is performing amazingly.

    The only bag you'll ever need.

    The drop liner is my #1 and only backpack. 100% water-proof, plenty of storage capacity, NYC bike commuter certified. Don't leave home without it.

    Perfect backpack for travel

    I’ve been using Dropliner for few years and traveling around the world. Useful pocket, laptop divider, waterproof, adjustable size, this is prefect backpack ever. I prefer previous material about shoulder strap...

    Thank you O.! Good to know that some prefer the previous shoulder strap fabric - we came upon that as an end roll of fabric made for another company, and I had to find something else to replace it when I ran out - the new US-made material is more durable and we believe better overall, but thank you for the feedback!
    Bomb Proof

    Used it for hundreds of miles. It lasted a 200 mile- 9 day Camino walk as well as dozen overnight 15 mile trips. Only bad thing is it was made with on strap a 1/4 inch higher than the other. After 24 mile day it is really noticeable. Otherwise the best pack ever

    Thank you Eric! That's no good about the strap length differential though, thank you for that - I'll definitely make sure to keep an eye out for that, and shoot me an email if you ever want to replace your pack and I'll get you a discount!
    It's the most reliable lightweight Bag

    There is a lot of shoulder bag in the world nowadays. I run into his bags a bicycle shop at my hometown it was 5 years ago. I owned many shoulder bags. They were products made by major manufacturing companies. But they didn't satisfy me. One bag could hold a lot of luggage. Also, a certain bag was a very popular design. I understood one point. I've often out of balanced of my health by those “popular” bags. I've ever traveled Pacific Northwest with my LF camera tools (and packed more daily supplies goods) . I walked many distances, passed through the customs at the airport, took a bicycle, and put in and out photographic equipment. It was the maximum size that could be carried on board an aircraft. Still, I felt no pain when I carried the baggage. One time, the person with my bag said. “What a heavy bag you have!” He couldn't imagine that the small bag was so heavy. I currently have two Truce bags. (S and M sizes). They are already part of my body. You can stuff what you want in these bags. And you will feel that they are made with a Craftman's techniques.
    I strongly recommend these products!

    Thank you so much Yoshio!
