“Each Del Día product is made proudly in the Philippines from remnant materials by an employee who has total creative control over the pack’s colorway. No two are the same.”
- Great quality of materials, build and design. Not a thin, cheap material. Solid and dense to the touch 75D-210D nylon shell.
- Simple and useful organization.
- A few different models to choose from.
- I personally prefer the Batac, rectangle design. The Luzon design can fit a little more.
Material Choice:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
75D-210D nylon shell feels and performs solid. Extra points for being made from remnants from the creation of other bags!
Build Quality:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
Cotopaxi make serious bags, have done for a while now. They know what they're doing and it shows in the bags.
Water Resistance:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
Who needs water resistance anyways. Just duck into a local shop to wait out the downpour.
External Access:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
Not much for external access, but there IS a quick access pocket on (i think) all of the designs.
Carry Comfort:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
Very lightweight straps, breathable materials. Sternum strap. Wild colors.
Doesn't Look Weird:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
One of a kind bag... literally.
