The Filson Ripstop Compact Waist Pack is lightweight and rugged–ideal for light loads when hiking, fly fishing, or any other time you require hands-free carry. Ripstop nylon was the ingenious solution to replace silk for use in parachutes during WWII when American airborne troops needed an ultralight fabric that could survive combat. The incorporation of a cross-hatch pattern of strong reinforcing threads into the weave of the lightweight nylon fabric prevented any holes that developed from spreading–a critical feature thousands of feet above the earth.
Filson built this waist pack with a stout variant of that revolutionary fabric–one able to withstand backcountry abuse no matter how tough the conditions. Produced by Cordura® 500D ripstop nylon that is light in weight, yet sturdy enough to resist abrasion, punctures and tearing. Available various webbing loops and buckles for gear attachment. Dimensions 11”L x 4-1/2”W x 6-3/4”H. Wipe or brush clean.
