Outlier's Experiment 073 might look like a simple tote bag, but if you're familiar with the brand then you know its much much more than that. The bag's construction starts with a material they're calling 'Paper Nylon', a Japanese nylon canvas that has a stiff consistency, but will also soften when exposed to humidity or wet weather and returns to its normal state when dry. 

For the handle, they chose a French polyester webbing that has the feeling of cotton, but the durability and quick-drying characteristics of polyester. The single strap is put through aluminum slot rings to create a two handle setup that can be easily adjusted to varying lengths for hand carry, shoulder carry, and across the body wear. 

Available February 13th.

$198/$225, outlier.nyc
