Best Made Dyneema Patrol Pack

Synthetic fabrics have never really been Best Made’s thing. The New York-based brand more closely alines themselves with classic materials like heavy canvas, steel, and wood. Recently, however, the brand has been experimenting more with contemporary textiles like with their new Dyneema Patrol Pack.

This super limited backpack is made with a tough, lightweight Dyneema fabric — the same kind used for sails on boats that compete in America’s Cup Racing. When it comes to bag materials, this isn’t necessarily groundbreaking. Lots of rugged backpacks are built with similar fabrics. What is unique about this bag, however, is the fact that Best Made reversed it to reveal the fiber pattern of the bag — a choice that has given this backpack a more rustic, textured feel. In addition to making the bag lightweight and strong, the Dyneema has also made the Patrol Pack water resistant — something further complemented by Best Made’s choice of YKK Aqua Guard zippers. Another nice touch on this pack is the front-loading zipper. This, paired with the bright interior fabric, makes it easy to pack and find gear in your bag when you need it most. Don’t hesitate on this one. Only 40 have been made and there is no guarantee they’ll come back again.
