With countless military, outdoors and sporting applications, Cordura 1000D has seriously stood the test of time. No other fabric's enduring resilience is as proven or as reliable when it counts most. Fifty years on from its invention, my friends at Best Made Co have anchored their latest SWS collection with the legendary "synthetic with soul" and backed it with a cotton twill lining, reinforced it with metal hardware, and sealed it with rubberized zippers. This is what bags for life really look like.
As always, Best Made have selected the best possible materials for building this collection. For certain demanding applications, their usual choices of natural materials like leather, wool and wood just don't cut it. To combat these shortcomings, Best Made have turned to synthetic materials like Kevlar, Ballistic Nylon and Cordura to provide optimal performance and resistance in the harshest environments.
The SWS roll-top duffle combines all the features of a dry bag technology with materials and hardware found in the most demanding applications. Constructed from 1000 denier Cordura and fully lined with a water resistant coated cotton twill, the duffels are finished with a seatbelt webbing and YKK Aquaguard® zippers. The bags are also with a light-colored fabric to aid interior visibility. Featuring full metal hardware and a powder coated zinc spring release side buckle, these duffles are designed with the roll-top closure that allows for expansion and creates a weather tight seal against even the harshest elements. The duffle is available in 100L or 50L capacities.
Built to the same exacting manufacturing specs as the duffles, the SWS cases provide unrivalled protection and organisation and are perfect for every day carry. The SWS cases are a fully integrated system that allow for the secure and organized transport of notebooks, currency, passports, travel devices, cords and other small personal effects.
The SWS Field Case is designed to carry important mid-size items and has capacity for notebooks, maps, the iPhone Plus, or a power bank. The Field Case is built around six internal pockets, one of which is secured with a YKK Aquaguard® zipper, and a paracord key loop.
The SWS Passport Case was developed to keep you organised safeguard your phone, passport and small travel documents while you're on the move. The Passport Case features five internal pockets including a pen pocket, passport pocket, and the same paracord key loop as the Field Case.
Finally, the SWS Pocket Case is designed to keep money, credit cards and keys safe and sound. The Pocket Case includes: seven internal pockets including a coin pocket that is secured with a YKK Aquaguard® zipper, and the paracord key loop.
I can't wait to get my hands on a duffle and Field Case for my next adventure!
