What material are the bags made of?
The tarpaulin bag bases and tarpaulin flaps consist of new, coated fabric (truck tarpaulin). The inner fabric of the tarp is responsible for the stability, the coating makes it coloured and waterproof. All folding bags (»Präsidentin«, »Leistungsträgerin« (high performer), »Senatorin« and »Komplizin« (accomplice) are made of waterproof and ultra-light high-tech-Cordura. Some flaps are covered with robust industrial fabrics (e.g. Cordura or upholstery fabrics), some with fine fabrics, sequins or reflector materials. Some are made of pure tarpaulin, others are digitally printed directly with photo printing, others are screen printed. We try to describe the materials as precisely as possible for each article.
Which bag flaps go with which bag bases?
There are three flap sizes. All bag flaps L fit the »Schwerstarbeiterin« and the »Nomadin«
All bag flaps M will fit the »Präsidentin«, the »Leistungsträgerin«, the »Diplomatin«, the »Athletin«, the »Tagediebin«, the »Thusnelda"« and the »Schutzbefohlene«.
All bag flaps S are suitable for the »Senatorin«, the »Komplizin« the »Forscherin«, the »Nachtschwärmerin«, the »Prinzessin« and the »Vagabundin«.
The model names are printed on the orange inside pocket of each bag body.
Do I have to treat the tarpaulin in a certain way?
No. It is plastic and needs no special care. A careful handling is beneficial for the durability. With sharp and rough objects you can damage the surface of the tarpaulin. If necessary, you can clean the tarpaulin with regular detergent. Over time, a patina develops on the tarpaulin surface, which changes according to the use (i. e. bluejeans can color light tarp), but can not be completely removed. The brighter the tarpaulin, the faster you can see a patina.
How much can the bags carry?
You can load the bag with several kilograms. The material has an extremely high strength, as well as the belt, which is a seat belt from the auto industry. The bags and flaps are sewn with a thick, tear-resistant polyester thread. So you will not be able to get them to the limit, because you're going to kneel first.
The coating of the tarpaulin breaks after years and sets free the underlying tissue. That's normal. You can still enjoy your bag with its patina for many many years.
The Velcro on the bag body is a wearing part. It tires according to the manufacturer (Velcro or YKK) after 10000 openings. We can exchange the Velcro. That costs 19 €. Select the item "Repair" in the shop and follow the instructions.
