Riddle time: What’s 10x stronger than steel, yet is quite literally featherweight to a point of being able to float on water? Answer: nonwoven Dyneema. Outlier took this incredible material and with assistance from Hyperlite Mountain Gear, the two were able to create this Minimal Backpack. It’s quite possible the most basic backpack in terms of appearance, but its extremely capable of lugging around, say a bag of bricks, with ease and it is waterproof to boot. It also features a roll top closure, taped seams and you can even fold it down and put it in your jacket pocket, should you not have a need for it at the time being. You can pick yours up at the Outlier web shop.
