Fabio's TECH Chest: Connecticut Khaki
Listen uppp gear nerds! This is the TECHEST fabric in your science class. All the brains, brawn, and the looks.. YALE athlete & Rhodes scholar with a jaw to split an iceberg kinda fabric. A world class product of the Connecticut sailing industry, Dimension Polyant’s X50 replaces VX21 as our material of choice for our technical Fab’s line.
*detailed measurements in the picture set below*
- X50 is extremely durable, lightweight, rigid, water proof, classically handsome, and soft to the touch. Wow, I could be talking about myself here.
X50 fabric is 500D Cordura fabric face treated with a DWR, with a Kevlar X-Ply insert, and a .50MIL PET film backer.
- works great for front and rear use, just be sure to use a dowel or a found stick with the voile nano 6” straps when attaching in the rear to your brooks saddle loops (see photos).
roll top design for expandable load capacity.
works rackless if you’ve got a big enough head tube, or with the simple, inexpensive pec dec we sell to “pump up yer chest”.
minimum drop handlebar width is 48mm c-c for the small, 66mm for the large
20-34 litters for the small and 30-46 for the large depending on how you expand the roll top, long flap, and yer mind okaY.
weight is 37 oz small and 40 oz large
A few notable new design features
new mounting system that will work on more handlebars with more mounting options. -The side pockets are shorter than our old small in order to give riders with narrower drop bars more room between the bag/chest/thing and their hands on the hoods. Larges have the same huge pockets as before.
quick magnetic bag closure for use in basket mode (roll top folded down inside bag) so that you can now open and close bag with one hand while riding.
same split back adjustable connecticut made nylon buckle closure for when you need to expand the bag for touring and large grocery loads.
loops for attaching shoulder strap when using off the bike.
larges have a fun webbing handle in the middle for off the bike use
bright yellow drop liner with inside organizer pocket for better weather protection and so you can better see your chocolate bars inside.
X-pac is made in Connecticut; a product of our 400 year old sailing industry (how cool!).
