Minimalism and the philosophy that less is more have always been core principles in our design since day one. Slightly reworked and reimagined, the new Venture LT truly embodies those mantras by eliminating all zippers—namely, the double access side zip, leaving the roll-top as the primary entry point (the design's original intent). The omission of zippers also strips away the most liable point of failure, making for a more robust pack with practically no mechanical parts.

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."
Cowhide using the same basic tannage as Horween's venerable Shell Cordovan. Hot-stuffed with waxes/oils for improved water repellency. Supple, buttery leather that wears in beautifully.
