Whether you recognize it or not, Tyvek is everywhere: the flashspun high-density polyethylene fiber is used to create post office envelopes, light hazmat suits and those concert wristbands that are impossible to tear off. It’s precisely that lightweight durability that inspired the carry gurus at Timbuk2 to design its latest bag collection around Tyvek.
The Parachute Collection consists of an 18-liter backpack, a 10-liter messenger bag and a two-liter sling. Thanks to Tyvek, all three bags are highly crushable despite maintaining plenty of structure and support when packed; they’re also weatherproof. It’s a rare combination of qualities that make the Parachute Collection ideal for travel, hiking and commuting to the office.
