DISCLOSURE: We will be releasing the 2012 NEWT in a few days - the major change is the addition of a wrap around front mesh pocket.

Get a a super deal on the current NEWT while they last...The one difference on these last few Newts is the change to a LineLock buckle for the roll top that saves some weight. That buckle will be on the 2012 Newts too.

Folks may remember our plans mentioned over the last months on " PlaceNook" for the 2012 NEWT aka "Son of Newt" aka " Marsupial" aka " NewtDaddy"

Note that the NEWT and most all MLD Packs use the very durable and strong 210d Dyneema X (tm).

Dyneema X:
210d nylon ripstop
9% Dyneema content by weight
Nylon X Pattern Abrasion Over Weave
Medium weight PU WaterProof inner coating and DWR outside coating
About 4.2oz sq/yd

Another fabric that looks a lot like the Dyneema X in a web picture is coming out on some packs by another company soon and multiple websites and blogs - including posts on BPL- have confused the two fabrics as the same.

To make the distinction clear- that fabric is:

140d nylon ripstop
6% dyneema by weight
Plain Weave
Light weight PU inner coating
About 3.2oz sq yd

The 210D Dyneema X is over twice as strong and abrasion resistant as that second fabric.

Small packs use only about 1 sq/yd of primary body fabric.
