Dyneema® Dacron Drop Liner Backpack

$ 280.00

We got a new sail in stock, and this one is reinforced with Dyneema® - it's the burliest,most heavy duty headsail we've ever gotten in the shop. With the Dyneema® fiber reinforcement, this fabric is slightly stiffer and much stronger than a normal Dacron sail.

Each pack is unique: choose your colors from our list of available recycled materials to individualise your pack.

The moisture-wicking lumbar pad rests easy on your back, ensuring comfort when carrying a load. Our comfortable straps keep the pack close, while strap keepers ensure no webbing flaps at higher speeds. All packs come with a webbing hip strap for additional stability; an optional padded, matching hip belt is easily attached into place for extra comfort and weight distribution. Please note - although water-resistant, the top lid pocket is NOT waterproof and care should be taken to avoid putting moisture-sensitive items in this location during wet conditions.

Our Drop Liner is also versatile: By tucking in the shoulder straps under the lumbar pad, your pack is now converted to ‘carry on mode,’ in which no loose straps are left hanging. By using Cilogear’s Dee-Clip strap system, you can easily compress the load in your pack, or attach extra gear that won’t fit inside; each pack comes with two Dee-Clip straps.

Closed with a 1½" buckle, our backpack is available in three different sizes and custom coloring options.

PLEASE NOTE: Each product is different.  No product made from recycled sailcloth will be pure white.  These sails have spent years on rivers, lakes and oceans before beginning their new life as a vessel for your belongings.  Each sail is inspected and cleaned before being put through our machines - but they will always have a certain character, accumulated from years of adventure.  Drysuit nylon is new and unused, but may have chalk marks from the factory's layout/cutting process.
