Our Experimental Series of packs represent our effort to push the limits of pack construction with new materials and techniques. These will be sold in very small numbers, and will be built by our custom team. We will release Experimental Series packs sporadically throughout the year when we're feeling inspired by new ideas or new fabrics become available.
For the second release in our Experimental Series we have a small batch of Octothorpes and Hauls that are constructed entirely of 1680D Ballistic Nylon (pack exterior). This material is something we've had in the workshop for a while, but haven't had the time to put into production. If you're unfamiliar with Ballistic Nylon, it's an incredibly tough nylon fabric with a very high tear-resistance, high tensile strength, and a smooth glossy finish. Just like our Cordura Nylon, this fabric is bomb proof. We sourced this material from our friends over at the Mystery Ranch, and it's some of the nicest 1680D nylon we've come across. It has a fantastic finish, and feels great. Just like our previous Heat Seal release, we're releasing the first Ballistic batch in solid black with our blacked out Pound logo, and Matte Black Zippers.
