The backpack is made with Cordura® 1000D Mil-Spec U.S. Army Camouflage fabric — a rugged and heavy-duty bag fabric. Cordura 1000D Mil-Spec is the industry leader when you need guaranteed performance in the most demanding environments. This high-tenacity, air-jet textured nylon from INVISTA™ is coated in a clear polyurethane on the back side and a durable water-repellent finish on the front side to create a material that is strong, dependable, quick-drying and easy to clean. In addition to being water-repellent, it’s abrasion, mold/mildew and rot resistant — along with incredible tear strength — and a great backpack to keep on your boat or for outdoor activities. It folds up and rolls for easy storage on your boat or RV where space is limited. The backpack features a front pocket and two side pockets.
