Back for the first time in several years with some refinements - the original Venture. After culminating years of travel, this was my attempt at designing a pack that would be my personal ultimate pack. 6 odd years later, I can honestly say that this just might be it. After all the different packs I've designed, prototyped, and used, I've always come back to my Venture. It's been around the world and back countless times and I still use it daily.

Water Repellent Cotton Canvas
Specially treated canvas without the use of fluoropolymers. Hardy treatment that's fully impregnated as opposed to surface treated.
"We do not use any fluoropolymers in any of our fabrics due to health and environmental reasons. Others brands of water repellent fabrics do use fluoropolymers, which are typically a surface applied treatment only that will decompose over time when exposed to water and certain chemicals– this means that with age a reapplication would be necessary, hence the availability of these over the counter retreatment options. Our water repellent is fully impregnated throughout and is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove from the fabric once applied."
High tenacity nylon 6 with gridded ripstop pattern. DWR (water repellent) coated outer with a proprietary UTS (Ultra Tear Strength) PU coating on the backside that's specially formulated to increase tear resistance while offering excellent hydrolysis performance (breakdown of coating in water).
Full-grain cowhide hot-stuffed with waxes/oils for improved water repellency. Breaks in and softens beautifully.
Made in Italy to the finest standards. Premium symmetrical Superlampo tank zips feature individually polished teeth for exceptionally smooth operation.
