Dyneema X vs Cuben Fiber Versions

• Cuben version is seam taped inside for better water resistance. Keys areas are also liquid seam sealed. Not as water resistant as a dedicated River Style Dry Bag but does a good job for rain protection. Use of stuff sacks inside encouraged but no need for a pack liner or rain cover.
• Cuben is a little stiffer material making is a bit easier to load.
• Cuben version uses a roll top design integrated into the side compression system for simplicity.
• Cuben version does not have the bottom volume reduction loops, hydration ports or inside hang loops
• Cuben versions are the same size and constructed the same as the Dyneema versions.
• Cuben fabric does not absorb water, and the packs has slightly fewer straps so the pack will weight 1- 3 oz less when wet in prolonged rain.
• White interior is brighter to help spot gear inside in low light.
• Cuben version uses a double thick lower back panel in Cuben + Dyneema X for abrasion resistance.
• Cuben versions are the same dimensions and use the same EVA padded shoulder and hip belts.
• Cuben versions weighs about the same.

Q: Why doesn't the Cuben version weigh a lot less than the Dyneema X version?
A: The amount of fabric in the main pack body is only about 40% of the total pack weight. Mesh pockets, straps, 3D mesh on straps, shoulder and hipbelt strap foam and hardware is about 60% of the total. The Cuben we use is fairly tough and weighs close to the same as the Dyneema X and so the pack total weight is about the same. We changed a few features but keep most for total function, strength and comfort.

Q: Is the LW LightWeight Suspension option available on the Cuben Packs?
A: Nope! For loads under 25lbs suspension is not needed.

If in Doubt - Size Up!

-Torso lengths on MLD packs are measured from bottom of pack below waist belt wings to the point where the shoulder straps attatch to the pack.
-95% of MLD packs users do best to go by our height guidelines.
-NOTE: Different pack makers and outdoor stores measure for torso length differently.
-Frameless pack are measured and fit differently than fully framed packs with large hipbelts- DO NOT go to your local outdoor store/REI and "get measured" and then select length from that measure- it will be wrong. Use our height guide!

If you need help deciding the right size - Please Call
(Please do not order multiple sizes as a guess.)
