Designs for our waterproof backpacks and panniers are created in Autocad to ensure an
exact fit. Multiple prototypes are then made
and Urban tested until we are happy with every detail of our Made in Seattle gear.
Once a pack is finalized, a marker is created and multiple layers of fabric are cut with
a stack cutter. These cut pieces are bundled with webbing and buckles, delivered to
home sewers and sewn into the individual parts.
The parts from the home sewers are picked up and go through a QC procedure at our Seattle
workshop. Our In-House sewers take these parts and sew them into complete backpacks
for each order, Proudly attach the Made in America label and initial the individual serial #.
Lastly we insert the EV 50 foam back pad and HDPE frame sheet, attach the waist belt, perform
the final Quality control and put the final initials on the serial #. Small controlled production
runs like this guarantee you get the highest quality pack to protect your laptop and gear.
