minimal backpack

the minimal backpack by brooklyn based outlier is a product that's all about the material. it's made of non-woven dyneema, a material ten-times stronger than steel but very lightweight.

the design brief was to make the simplest, lightest backpack possible that was suitable for daily use. it is waterproof with a roll-top closure, and can be folded up into your pocket when not in use. i think it looks great; almost paper-like in texture, but clearly (as the above brick-filled example demonstrates) a super-strong thing.

available early next year, it is available direct from outlier for $128.
