Our Favorite Dyneema Bags Right Now
Dyneema (formerly known as Cuben Fiber) is lauded as the world’s strongest fiber. A material known for its crunched-paper-like aesthetic, incredible strength-to-weight ratio and weatherproofness. And when it’s implemented well in a bag, the results are undeniable.
So we’ve gone through and selected our favorite Dyneema bags right now…
When venturing in the outdoors you want easy access to small essentials, with a reduced risk of losing them while you’re exploring. So UNJOE Gear designed the Snap Sacoche to meet this goal. The bag offers five pockets to securely store a variety of items while keeping them accessible on the go. Of course, there’s no reason it can’t accompany you on urban adventures too. The bag is handcrafted in Japan with an attractive blend of materials including X-Pac VX07 and 2.92 oz hybrid Dyneema® Composite Fabric. But take note, these sell out super fast, so make sure to stalk UNJOE’s instagram for updates!
The F/CE. Cuben Fiber Sacoche M offers is simple, transparent and a fine piece of streetwear. A useful pick for smaller loads, the bag features front quick-access pockets for frequently used gear. Weather-resistant zippers complement its practical, highly weather-resistant design. Plus with a removable strap, it doubles as a convenient pouch too.
If super-clean style and customized design pique your interest, the chances are pretty high you’ll dig the dyborg Dyneema Fanny Pack. The bag is made to order in Hamburg and can be customized across features such as buckle orientation and hardware (Fidlock Snap Buckles or AustriAlpin Cobra buckles). Additionally, even more personal customizations are possible such as different fabric weights and colors, Velcro patches and more if you have particular ideas in mind. The bag is constructed with taped seams, water-resistant YKK AquaGuard zippers, and a hybrid Dyneema Composite Fabric. The front and rear external pockets are handy for storing smaller items and the bag can be worn cross-body or around the waist depending on your preferences.
Forming part of DSPTCH’s experimental RND line, the Unit Sling Pouch offers compact everyday carry for your daily or travel essentials. Two zippered compartments organize your gear, while the quick-adjust shoulder strap is removable if desired. The bag is made in the USA with a weatherproof blend of Dyneema Composite Fabric (available in a range of colorways), a 410D Nylon Packcloth lining with a DWR coating, and weather-resistant YKK zippers. And it’s backed by a lifetime guarantee for added peace of mind.
DSPTCH offers up a limited edition take on their Slingpack decked out in stealthy black Dyneema Composite Fabric. Built for the long haul, the bag is crafted in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty. You’ll find a variety of organization options including padded storage for a slim 16″ laptop and a discreet pocket for valuables.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear serves up their signature lightweight carry with added organization in their Daybreak Daypack. The 17L pack weighs 1.27 lbs (577g) and is made in the USA with a 150-denier Dyneema Composite hybrid material. Exterior pockets, shock cord, and tool attachment points organize your gear for trips into the outdoors or overnight travel. Two internal pockets provide additional organization, with a bright lining making gear more visible in the main compartment. And the pack includes a sternum strap and stowable hip belt for comfort and load stability on the go.
The Zpacks Duffel is a versatile and lightweight duffel that weighs just 8.1 ounces (230g). The duffel is made in the USA using a 3.1 oz/sqyd hybrid Dyneema® Composite Fabric with taped seams for added protection from the elements. Its wide opening offers super convenient access for packing and retrieving gear, with side pockets on either end providing useful organization for quick-access items. An adaptable grab-and-go hauler, it suits a range of uses from travel to trips to the gym or larger day-to-day loads.
If you remember, we teamed up with the inimitable Bedouin Foundry to create the Balian Sling from the ground up. It sold out in minutes. And to meet demand, Bedouin re-released it to stoke the masses. Handcrafted in England with a combination of Dyneema Composite Fabric and Italian vegetable-tanned leather, it’s built to withstand the daily grind and get better-looking with use. Simple. Timeless. Badass.
The DSPTCH Daypack is utility and urban all in one. The pack is made in the USA with a 5oz Dyneema Composite Fabric exterior (available in black or white) and DWR-coated 410D Nylon Packcloth lining. YKK AquaGuard zippers give welcome added protection from the elements too. The pack has a suspended 16″ laptop compartment and transitions smoothly from casual work to play environments as duty calls.
Paris-based vvworker brings the worlds of high-end fashion and urban performance together with this elegantly functional hybrid. Teaming up with designer Pauline Deltour, they created the limited-edition vvorker bag as a useful daily tool that also offers chic aesthetics. The bag can be carried as a backpack or tote and adapts to carrying everyday work essentials or switching to a night out or weekend day trip. The use of Dyneema and a near-seamless construction creates a durable, lightweight and highly weatherproof bag designed to be a timeless carry staple.
The Boston Bag M is part of rofmia’s Shift series, taking a classic silhouette and lifting it to new heights. Intentionally minimalist yet functional, the flexible bag is crafted in a small Japan boutique with Dyneema Composite Fabric and YKK AquaGuard zippers. It can be carried by hand or over the shoulder and features a quick-access pocket for keeping smaller items within reach.
Visually striking and luxurious, Bedouin Foundry’s reimagined Pequod pack is a definite head-turner. The original waxed canvas design gets a makeover in a beautiful contrast of Dyneema and Italian vegetable-tanned leather. Made in Somerset, England, the pack features a central zipper and exterior compression straps that double as carry handles or can be used to secure additional gear externally. And of course, Bedouin’s signature crank lining gives that added artistic flair to a pack that scores 10 in X-Factor!
rofmia’s revised Daypack V2 adds greater functionality and durability to the original. Made with 5.0 oz Dyneema Composite Fabric, it might just be the cleanest daypack on the market! And with separate, dedicated laptop storage it’s easy to get to tech whether you’re at work or navigating airport security. Another appealing piece from their Shift series, there’s no denying the price is premium, but the quality and work-play-travel versatility is too.
