I purchased this bag to be my daily use daypack. Since I live on the beach, I also needed a bag that was water resistant and able to withstand a Florida shower while protecting my phone and valuables. When I first received the Modern Seabag, I was extremely pleased with its quality.
The Modern Day Sea bag is a 21L single compartment weatherproof day pack. The simple design was inspired by the classic military seabag, having no zippers and all metal parts. The top load compartment is closed by a folding closure system that can then be secured with a metal clip attached to the bag, or even a lock if you wish (lock not included).
The exterior of the bag is made with 1000 Denier Weatherproof Cordura Fabric, with all handles and straps made with military spec nylon webbing. The interior lining of the bag is made with a coated ripstop nylon fabric. There is an exterior pocket that can be fasten closed by a metal push-button and a hidden interior pocket for keys and valuables. The shoulder straps are comfortably padded and have a sternum strap to assist with pack stability. With no breakable parts and a look that will never go out of style, this bag was built to last a lifetime.
I have used the Modern Day Seabag almost everyday for the past 4 months, and there is not an ounce of wear/tear to be seen. The weatherproof Cordura fabric does an excellent job repelling dirt, keeping it looking brand new. When mine did get dirty (my sunscreen spray bottle emptied out in the bag) all i had to do was rinse off the inside and outside with a hose and hang it to dry…good as new.
This bag is now my go to bag to take when traveling and exploring different cities due to the size and because the closure system is really secure and would be difficult to steal from. You can even lock the compartment with small lock for extra protection if needed. When I don’t have enough room to fit items like my water bottle, I just hang them from the metal closure clip with a carabiner.
I am a true fan of the Modern Day Seabag’s minimalistic look and rugged design.
