Tanner Goods’s deep blue-toned Konbu collection is here. And it uses Cordura’s new Konbu fabric, a unique development requiring high-tech processing in order to make their 500D nylon look organic and natural. When the fabric is exposed to dry air, it becomes stiff and can stand on it’s own, Konbu fabric also becomes soft and supple in more humid conditions.
Named for a dried Japanese kelp, which has a similar hand feel, the Konbu fabric can take some beating while carrying like some the best made lightweight and waterproof soft goods out there. So if you have to hang out in wet conditions like a weed in the sea, the Konbu collection’s got you covered, with a little time you’ll dry out like a piece of Nori.
Tanner’s collection has a rucksack, daypack, tote, and a Dopp kit–something for everyone who loves Konbu. Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? There might be a nylon-loving member of your family who deserves a new bag. Or maybe your old hiking bag is looking a little too worn and needs replacing, treat yourself, put it under the Christmas tree addressed from Santa so your spouse doesn’t ask questions.
All the usual details offered on Tanner’s solid bag lineup can be found here: padded laptop sleeves, black English bridle leather strapping and accents, black Ideal zippers, black seam tape, nylon webbing, and more.
Available for $85-$400 at Tanner Goods.
