Material + Science
We choose only the finest and most durable materials when crafting BLACK MILE packs and gear.
Rugged and extremely light weight, Dyneema® is a revolutionary fabric that is waterproof and 15x’s stronger than steel by weight. Used extensively by the U.S. Military for armor solutions, Dyneema® is also resistant to UV light, making it an ideal fabric for the extremes of global travel.
YKK WATER-RESISTANT ZIPPERS
From the most trusted name in zippers, our YKK water-resistant zippers keep your gear inside your bag, and the elements outside.
RIPSTOP NYLON CORDS
During the weaving process, thick nylon threads are interwoven into our nylon cords to prevent ripping, tearing and fraying.
Widely regarded as the best carabiner on the market, we integrate Petzl Carabiners in the straps of the MILE ONE to keep your bag secure on your back or shoulder.
