Founded by former professional skydiver and Federal Aviation Administration master parachute rigger Jonathan Zar, Cali-based Crapchute makes tough but lightweight bags using ripstop fabric – a tear-, mildew-, and water-resistant nylon and polyester blend used for yacht sails, hot air balloons, and parachutes.
Each 68g bag does heavy lifting (up to 45kg of stuff), and the tight weaving of the ripstop prevents tears from spreading. The machine-washable tote also has a reversible pocket in front that holds an iPhone X, keys and a small wallet, and, like a parachute, allows the bag to be folded into itself.
In three designs – Tribal, Surfboard, and Tiger – at We The People, for $39.90 each.
