Blue Ice Dragonfly 25L Pack
The Dragonfly 25L pack is an abrasion-resistant, water-repellent, fully-functional backpack, for climbers and alpinists who want to go fast and light on speed ascents in the Alps or make rapid summit pushes during remote expeditions.
The Dragonfly 25L pack uses a minimalist design to keep it ultralight (only 460g), featuring resilient ripstop nylon to protect from abrasions on gear and rock, a DWR coating for just-in-case protection against light rain, and new highly breathable shoulder straps and a 3-D mesh back to allow moisture to dry quickly during intense efforts. This pack also has a rope carrying system, two mesh side pockets for added volume and ease-of-access, a large internal compartment with a water bladder, and a small outside zippered pocket to keep small items readily accessible. Top-loading secured by a drawcord for easy opening and closing. Perfect for fast and light ascents.
|MATERIAL(S)||420 denier ripstop CORDURA with a polyurethane coating and a DWR finish / 100 denier high tenacity ripstop nylon|
Ripstop stops rips!
Ripstop fabrics are fabrics woven with special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. Used in sails, hot air balloons, kites, and parachutes (disclaimer: gear will not work as a parachute… or at least hasn’t been tested to).
The DWR (durable water repellent) is an ultra-thin, water-resistant treatment whose satisfying water-beading has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. Although the DWR is not permanent and will wear off from exposure to dirt and general wear and tear, it can be very easily restored to its original functionality.
