We’ve integrated our new abrasion-resistant, water and energy saving custom-textile, and our breathable back panel into both sizes of the CHZ. Quick access, intuitive layout, incredible laptop carry and durable, weather resistant materials make CHZ26 the go to everyday backpack for your active lifestyle.
Exclusive to Evergoods, we custom-made a balanced woven textile, which takes the ruggedness of Ballistic 840D Nylon 6 and pairs it with the sleek woven standards of our CIVIC line. Twisted yarn for increased tensile strength. Dustproof and easy to clean. Improved abrasion-resistance. Same streamlined aesthetic.
We replaced our standard foam with a new two-layer construction of 3D spacer mesh and abrasion-resistant 50D monofilament woven. The back panel isdurable, doesn't pill, won't abrade clothing, and is wildly breathable.
MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE
To color their products, most big brands add dyes after the fabric has been developed. For this evolution of the CPL, we solution dyed our custom textile at the polymer stage in the beginning of the supply chain, which uses far fewer resources and produces a longer lasting product.Saves water. Saves electricity. Adds color fade resistance.
LOW PROFILE EXTERIOR
A streamlined profile lacking bobbles and dangles make it glide through crowded city streets or dense outdoor surroundings.
Superior fit resulting from our 3d patterning rides high for active carry and with our SHIFT laptop patterning CHZ22 is exceptionally comfortable even with a laptop inside.
PADDED + SUSPENDED STRETCH LT COMPARTMENT
Suspended above the bottom of the bag for impact protection. Contour patterning keeps the pocket flat against the back panel and out of the way. Expands to accept different sized devices up to 15” Macbook Pro. Holds devices securely while allowing back panel flex for incredibly comfortable laptop carry. Integrated foam pad for device protection against other objects in the bag. Finger loop for easier handling and loading.
DUAL SIDE-UTILITY STRETCH POCKETS
Exterior side pockets built from hard-wearing mountain apparel grade 4-way stretch woven for easy access to gloves, 1 liter water bottles, sunglasses, etc. Holds contents close and expands for larger items. Simple fold-over construction reduces catching. Elastic inside top edge is protected from abrasion, helps contain items and maintain a low-profile. Bottom pleat expands to create volume. Corner cutouts allow dirt and debris to passively escape.
ANGLED MAIN BODY ZIPPER
Sloping zipper lines for smooth operation and hinged, half-zip opening allows excellent access and visibility while containing the load. Bottom bucket has excellent volume and packs well Lighter colored interior aids visibility.
INTERIOR SECURITY POCKET + MESH POCKET
Opaque pocket + mesh pocket with 2-step access combines security, with accessibility. Keeps more fragile items up high, above the main load.
EXTERIOR TOP POCKET
Quick, easy access to smaller items and key leash without setting the bag down. Uses volume above the shoulders and does not interfere with main compartment. Keeps more fragile items up high, above the main load.
UTILITY WEBBING LOOPS
Two vertical rows of webbing at the top of main interior allow you to clip or stow small itemslike keys, pens, folding knives or attach an aftermarket organization pouch or panel.
LOOP LOGO PATCH
Velcro loop logo allows quick customization for style or function. Differentiate or identify your CHZ22 from others in your group or add reflective or fluorescent functionality for visibility. Patches sold separately.
LOW PRO BLADDER PORTS
Right and left shoulder ports have no velcro, no elastic, and no moving parts. Easy to use and will not break over time.
EV50 SHOULDER STRAPS FROM ZOTEFOAMS
Zote uses Nitrogen gas in a high pressure process to create foams with small and highly uniform pore size and consistent bubble distribution throughout the material. This yields a pure EVA foam with extremely even density and long lasting compression resistance.
YKK ZIPPERS WITH DWR FINISH
The RC (Racquet coil) zipper from YKK is specially designed for luggage applications where resistance to abrasion is a must. This zipper was precision engineered to meet the toughest performance requirements.
All EVERGOODS backpacks use RC series zippers treated with a DWR finish to repel water without changing the cycling resistance for easy access.
