New for Spring ’18, Diamond Brand is introducing a new fully customizable and American-crafted Belay Bag for the modern adventurer. Inspired by the brand’s original daypack launched in the ‘80s, the updated Belay Bag uses upcycled materials and features interchangeable straps and front pockets large enough to store a 32 oz. growler – perfect for a day hike and trip to the local brewery!
Constructed of 1000D nylon and 70D upcycled polyurethane coated canvas scraps from Diamond Brand Gear’s Free Dome tents, the Belay Bag boasts large exterior pockets that can hold a 32 oz. growler, large water bottle, or a wine bottle. The backpack also includes a padded laptop sleeve and additional interior pockets for storage. Completely interchangeable shoulder straps can be adjusted for size, style and color, or remove one and adjust to carry the bag as a sling pack. The hip and sternum straps are also completely removable with the ease of a snap. A padded back panel features 3D spacer mesh for thermal regulation, ventilation, comfort and protection while taking the load off of the spine.
Additional features of the Belay Bag:
- All metal hardware
- 2 exterior and 2 internal pockets, plus laptop sleeve
- Daisy chain attachment system
- 1 leather logo lash tab
- Choice of regular or tall size shoulder straps
- Extra pull tab p-cord color included in every bag
- Available in 5 colorways
