William Ellery & 1733 Day Pack
Smallest viable option for travel, made from ultralight waterproof materials.
This experimental pack ditches traditional foam padding, and instead utilizes the gear you carry already. Your sit-pad on a day hike, or your newspaper on the way to the cafe, becomes the bag's padding.
This ultralight pack allows for compressed stowage, that can clip to your hiking pack. Use this bag when traveling away from camp to find water, or for short day hikes away from basecamp.
Thorough testing shows that this bag can carry a camera, film, sunglasses, phone, sit-pad, lunch, snacks, jacket, and 1 liter of water in an ultralight bottle.
This fabric has been naturally dyed in NYC using already brewed coffee grounds from Sey Coffee. Once coffee has been brewed, Sey set aside the used grounds to brew a second time as the dye for this fabric. The coffee, Bera (Ethiopian), imparts a subtle, warm golden tone to the fabric. The natural dying process allows for differing degrees of saturation, color, and tone on each bag. Each bag has a uniquely dyed look and no two are identical. The subtle off-white color will serve as the foundation for more use and color. This is an experimental method, and mixing natural dye with waterproof materials is still in it's infancy.
