Sneak Peek at 2010 Ditto Backpack

We're excited to release a few early pictures here of the 2010 Ditto backpack. Made from Hypno PQs (the official tent for 2006 Primal Quest), the bag is a lightweight roll-top backpack with an integrated stuff sack that lets you stuff the bag into itself.

This year, we've also received generous donations of manufacturing seconds from our friends at Dimension Polyant (sailcloth fabric), ITW Nexus (buckles), and Sterling Rope (webbing) for some of the bag components. The webbing will likely be used on some of the new Ditto Totes, but all the other company donations will be integrated into the bag design.

We patterned the bag to have a nice sweeping/continous curve that follows the bag all the way around. You might be able to see this better in the side view. There's also good continuity in the seaming curves that run from the orange to the black fabric.

As usual, feel free to share your thoughts on the design, materials, production process, etc.
