This hydration pack is made of heavy duty ballistic nylon. This fabric made its first appearance during WWII. The idea was to develop an industrial strength nylon material that would provide additional protection for troops serving in combat areas. The task was taken by DuPont, which tried several weaves and formulas before coming up with a durable nylon that could be used to create flak jackets worn by a number of United States airmen. The main purpose of these stronger jackets was to deflect shrapnel and other types of debris that resulted from gunfire and artillery explosions. Given the indented purpose for the nylon product, the material was dubbed ballistic nylon, with emphasis given to the ability of the material to repel a number of materials. We felt that this fabric was perfect for our RIGS as we wanted to have hydration packs in our line-up that could take heavy abuse delivered by hard core outdoor enthusiasts and motor sports enthusiasts.
