P-2 Sample in Progress

The fly fishing backpack has taken another big step towards a final product. We've submitted another round of specs to the factory and should have what we call a P-2 version in a few weeks! In today's product marketing meeting, we reviewed new details with designers Joe Hanssen and Mike Sturm (photo below).

After researching many different materials, color swatches, and hardware samples, Mike and Joe found a perfect blend of form and function.

They decided to go with an earthy "Sage Green" accented a rust-colored logo. Modern-shaped fabric panels will help blend a contemporary look into this classic color scheme.

Using pins, Joe is able to experiment with different fabrics, colors and shapes to fine-tune the "finish" on the design.

The "lab-dip" sample below shows how the designers evaluate new colors. Joe and Mike are particularly excited about using a new color on the webbing they call "Raven." It's the little things ;-)

How do you like it so far?
